- Jimmy Kimmel surprises Bachelor Chris and the 18 remaining women by taking over the show as guest host for this episode.
A long-time avid fan of the franchise, he informs them that he is there to help Chris on his journey to find a wife to bring home to Arlington, Iowa. He introduces the bachelorettes to his “Amazing Jar,” plans dates and winds up in a hot tub – all in the name of love.
Here is the rest of the official ABC release on this 3rd episode, with my own comments and added sneak peeks!
- Jimmy fools Chris and Kaitlyn into believing that they will be going to a high-end members only club for their date. Little do they know, that is not exactly what Jimmy has planned. Later, Jimmy crashes an intimate dinner at the Bachelor’s pad, where the couple is grilling some steaks. But will Jimmy amp up the romance and help Chris decide if this lucky lady really deserves a rose?
Nothing to say… just watch this:
Next, Jimmy and Chris take 12 stunning bachelorettes to compete in a farm-themed relay race to see if they can handle being a farmer’s wife.
Included in the grueling gauntlet of farming duties are milking a goat, shoveling manure and wrestling a greased pig. To everyone’s surprise, an underdog beats out a brash woman in top physical shape.
Things heat up at the after party when one inebriated bachelorette confronts Chris about the number of women he is kissing. But in the end, one dignified and self-possessed charmer wins the group date rose.
Chris and Whitney are sharing a wonderfully romantic day in beautiful wine country when they stumble upon a wedding in progress and spontaneously decide to crash it. Posing as friends of the bride, the daring couple dance and mingle with the unsuspecting wedding guests. But will Whitney get a rose or will their ruse be discovered and get them kicked out?
The day of the cocktail party, Jimmy returns with one last surprise for the women. It’s fun and games…
Jade and Chris… Trying out the bed…
… until single mom Juelia shares her tragic story with Chris and the traumatic event that changed her life and that of her daughter.
