Finally the world has arrived truly Meet Jerry Turner – the next superstar for the first time ever Golden Bachelor – On Mondays The Bachelorette: guys say it all episode, and it did not disappoint.

Before host Jesse Palmer brought Turner in to greet the audience, a video package was shown to help set up his background. In it, the 71-year-old discussed how he married his high school sweetheart, Toni, and they went on to live together for 43 years with two daughters and two granddaughters.

But then Turner got into the story of how he and Tony bought their dream home together, only to pass away a few short weeks later after contracting a bacterial infection that affected her kidneys and liver. Turner broke down in tears during her discussion, as did some of those watching in the studio.

The video package also informs viewers that Turner has “passed an STD test and a drug test” for the show – which gives him a good laugh – and the thing he’s most worried about is “remembering 25 names.” He also revealed a little bit about what he might be looking for in a partner, or at the very least, a celebrity crush.

“Best case scenario is that I spot Helen Mirren on the market and she’s really glad she’s there Golden BachelorTurner said.

When Turner finally came out on stage in person – incl very warm welcome From the studio audience as well as this season’s audience bachelorette The suitors – Discussed what his “whirlwind” life has become since being declared a Golden Bachelor and admitted he didn’t know much about what “trend” meant and especially what “Grandemeans.

Turner also offered his thoughts on his season’s potential including fantasy wingers.

“I would say yes,” Turner said. “But it might look a little different. That’s a long way in the journey, it’s a long way. And I think there are a lot of steps that a potential partner and I will need to go through to make that happen, to make it a comfortable situation.”

Given that Turner already has a successful 43-year marriage under his belt, he was asked to counsel someone who also wanted a long-term marriage.

“Look at your wife every day and tell her you love her. Because the day comes too early for one of you to do that. And I would give anything to be able to do that again,” Turner said. “Tell them you love them every day. Give them that hug.”

Speaking of Turner’s previous romance, he talked about how he really wants things to go differently this time around.

Turner said of his story with Tony: “I don’t think that’s what I’m looking for. What I’m looking for at 70 is different from what I was looking for when I was in high school or college. So I think I’m going to find who I am, the new person who will make me whole again. And I think We’re going to have a great relationship, but I don’t think it’s going to look like the relationship Tony and I had. And I don’t think it would be right to do it that way.”

Turner’s story and honest answers to Palmer’s questions quickly endeared him to everyone in the room, not to mention the viewers at home. Some took to social media to sing his praises.
