Episode 05 – airing February 2nd (8:00–10:00 p.m., ET):
- THE WOMEN TRAVEL TO SANTA FE AS SOME OF THE BACHELORETTES DECIDE TO DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO IMPRESS CHRIS AND GET A ROSE
- Summary: Chris and the 11 remaining women begin their journey around the country to find love in picturesque Santa Fe, New Mexico. Carly is the lucky woman to get the first one-on-one date, but the couple has to survive a very awkward, intimate meeting with the “Love Guru.” Kelsey, already the focus of the other women’s animosity, stirs up more trouble when some of the women don’t believe her to be the sympathetic character she seems to be. A group date with nine gorgeous bachelorettes challenges them to ride the white water rapids of the Rio Grande River, but one woman falls overboard with perilous results. A stunned Chris is confronted by a rejected lady from his past who won’t take “no” for an answer. The Bachelor swoops in and takes Britt on a fabulously romantic hot air balloon ride, but is there something she is hiding from Chris to curry favor? Finally, Kelsey’s bid for attention goes awry…
Chris and Carly meet the “Love Guru,” who puts them through a series of sexual exercises which leave them practically naked, putting their connection on a fast track. Will the sexual tension lead to an intimate connection or will the couple get cold feet?
A few shades of “Chrisly”?
Kelsey, who shares the story of her late husband’s death with the other bachelorettes, is considered the “Black Widow” and disingenuous in the way she is presenting herself. She vows, however, to do whatever it takes to win Chris’ heart.
Nine adventurous women (Becca, Whitney, Ashley I, Kelsey, Jade, Kaitlyn, MacKenzie, Megan and Samantha) accompany Chris on a white water rafting trip to the Rio Grande River for one of the wildest rides of their lives. The outdoor adventure quickly turns dangerous when one bachelorette falls overboard into the icy rushing water. Will Chris be able to help rescue her? After the mishap, the group relaxes at a local hotel and gets ready to spend a special night with the Bachelor.
However, a woman that Chris previously said goodbye to returns to crash the party and attempts to get another chance to win Chris’ heart. Will the Bachelor comply with her wishes and risk the wrath of the rest of the women?
No spoiler…. just wait and see!
The next day, Chris sneaks into Britt’s hotel room in the early morning hours and whisks her away on one of the most romantic dates of the season: a hot air balloon ride as the sun rises.
Part two of the couple’s passionate date might put this woman’s way ahead of the group. Too bad the other bachelorettes don’t think she is being truthful about her intentions.
Steamy date number 2 of the night… after a shaky start?
Britt’s revelatory play-by-play of her date with Chris pushes Kelsey to make a secret visit to him that she hopes will insure her getting a rose. Will her heartbreaking personal story be seen as a desperate move for attention or will she gain Chris’ sympathy?
The already stressful cocktail party is thrown into disarray when a stunning twist brings it to a screeching halt.
