A Chicago grocery store owner who appeared briefly on the season premiere of “The Bachelorette” Monday night will be walking down the aisle—the produce aisle, that is.

After last season’s controversial "Bachelor" ending, “The Bachelorette” kicked off Monday with some much-needed redemption for Becca Kufrin, but the episode quickly sent many fans into a Twitter frenzy.

Those watching the show were left stunned when Chicago’s lovable Joe Amabile was sent home without advancing to the next round of the hit dating show.

The 31-year-old who said he “never forgets a face,” said his ideal first date would be to go out to restaurant with good wine and good food. But the “successful produce” man couldn’t produce a rose and was sent home in a decision that had many scratching their heads.

Amabile quickly went from “average Joe” to the subject of thousands of tweets and headlines, some noting that he was sent home while a man wearing a chicken costume advanced.

In the end, it appears Kufrin was more into chicken than produce.
