Episode 2 Preview “Tub & Lab” (aka “Ben was right, here comes the drama”) – airing January 11th:
- BEN “SCHOOLS” TEN LUCKY LADIES DURING A DATE FILLED WITH LAUGHS AND ROMANCE, AND SCIENTIFICALLY, WHO WILL BE THE BEST MATCH FOR THE INDIANA HEARTTHROB?
Summary: Ben greets ten ladies at a local Los Angeles high school where he invites them to take a trip down memory lane with him, but Lace is desperate to redeem herself after her erratic behavior at the first rose ceremony. Chris Harrison gets the first one-on-one date off to an exciting start when he introduces Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, fresh from the set of “Ride Along 2,” to Ben and his date, and they are off on a rollicking, unconventional rendezvous, which will end with a special performance by popular singer-songwriter Amos Lee. Finally, a visit to The Love Lab will test six bachelorettes to see who among them has the best connection to Ben. The week culminates when the drama-filled rose ceremony has one lady making a stunning decision.
Check out the remaining ladies here!
School spirit is center stage as Ben invites ten women to come back with him in time for challenges in four high school class periods: science, lunch, geography and gym. The winner will be crowned homecoming queen and will capture special alone time with Ben.
After a day of comical tests, one Bachelorette walks away with the crown and reigns supreme next to her handsome homecoming king. The other women, green with envy, can only watch as the couple take a victory lap around the high school track. (SPOILER ON DEMAND ONLY: Click on image to know who!)
Emotions heat up at the after party as Lace steals Ben away, leading to a confrontation between her and another woman. One anxious woman finally gets her opportunity to talk to Ben. They share a romantic kiss overlooking a panoramic view of Los Angeles, but will she get the group date rose?
Caila receives the coveted first one-on-one date, and it is one she won’t forget. Chartbusting rapper Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, one of comedy’s biggest stars – both starring in the upcoming sequel “Ride Along 2,” in theaters nationwide on January 15 – help Ben find love as they see fit.
On one hilarious date, the superstars treat the couple to “a date on a budget” – and in typical Bachelor fashion, a dip in a hot tub – that just happens to be in the middle of a hot tub store showroom floor.
Here is sneak peek first showed on GMA:
Later that evening, Ben surprises Caila with a VIP private concert by singer/songwriter Amos Lee.
The final group date of the week brings six women to Los Angeles’ The Love Lab. Scientists put the bachelorettes through a battery of tests — all to discover whose connection with Ben is the strongest. One lucky lady discovers that their match is off the charts. But the rest of the women still try their hardest to convince Ben of their compatibility.
One woman ignites the cocktail party with her major meltdown when her time with the Bachelor doesn’t go as she planned. Meanwhile, other bachelorettes are upset when one self-assured woman steals Ben away – even though she already has a rose. Two other ladies are head-over-heels with Ben when he makes some thoughtful gestures that might indicate a growing romantic connection.
The rose ceremony is a game changer, as Ben is totally taken aback by one bachelorette’s shocking behavior. Ben continues on with 17 women, one of whom might be his potential soul mate.
