The 60-year-old private school admin from Maryland met Gerry Turner, ABC's first-ever "Golden Bachelor — or senior contestant — on the show's Thursday, Sept. 28 premiere.
Vassos and 14 other women received a rose during the final rose ceremony, and will be progressing to the show's next round.
The other women who got a rose were Ellen, Theresa, Natascha, Leslie, Christina, Edith, Nancy, April, Sandra, Jeanie, Kathy, Marina, Peggy and Susan.
All are hoping for a shot at love with Gerry (pronounced Gary) Turner, a widower from Indiana.
According to her LinkedIn page, Vassos works in alumni relations and annual giving at the Landon School, a prep school for boys in Bethesda.
She has four kids and two grandkids and is looking for love again after losing her husband of 32 years to pancreatic cancer.
It doesn't appear Joan has gotten any one-on-one time with Gerry... yet.
The show airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
