"The Bachelor" star Chris Soules kicked off Season 19 Monday night by kicking out eight women, including Wantagh yoga instructor Kimberly Sherbach.

Or perhaps Sherbach will be back.

In addition to Sherbach, 28, Soules eliminated Reegan Cornwell, Michelle Davis, Brittany Felkin, Amanda Goerlitz, Nicole Meacham, Bo Stanley and Kara Wilson.

Sherbach, however, stormed back into "The Bachelor" mansion in tears to confront Soules, 33, as he was beginning to celebrate with the remaining contestants, leaving open the possibility of a plot twist.

"Actually, this is a cliffhanger," a network spokeswoman told Newsday. "We do not know if Kimberly is still on the show or not and won't until next week."

The live, red-carpet portion of the three-hour season premiere included a segment with Nikki Ferrell, who won the previous season of "The Bachelor" but broke up with star Juan Pablo Galavis after a tempestuous relationship and his seeming refusal to say he loved her.

She broke off the relationship in October, posting on Instagram, "Isn't it pathetic how we waste so much time on certain people and in the end they prove that they weren't even worth a second of it."

Ferrell, a Kansas City, Missouri, pediatric nurse, took a more measured approach Monday night, telling host Chris Harrison that Galavis is "a good person. I don't have anything bad to say."

She added that, "He did, absolutely" say he loved her. "The relationship didn't end because we didn't love each other or because of a lack of communication. It just ended because of difference of lifestyles."
