Check out these sneak peek clips of “The Bachelor” episode airing Monday, Jan. 13, where star Juan Pablo Galavis starts taking the women on dates.

Above, Cassandra tells Juan Pablo how she is a single mom to a 2-year-old son named Trey. Juan Pablo is delighted to hear it and she then says in an interview that she sees the potential between her and Juan. Well, being single parents may not quite be enough, Cass.

Below, the group date is a photo shoot and each bachelorette is being paired up with … a puppy! Cutest “Bachelor” date ever, even with the pooping on the floor (on the part of the puppies, not the bachelorettes, though that would be kind of amazing).

Finally, the other solo date belongs to Clare, who says that Juan Pablo makes her feel like a kid again, as they run around some kind of weird fake winter wonderland.

Meanwhile, the episode description reveals that “free spirit” Lucy causes problems at the mansion because she decides to go topless in the hot tub. Color us stunned.

“The Bachelor” airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
