On this two-day special, 11 ladies are left and ABC is pulling out the “two-on-one” date where only one lady returns.
As Chris Harrison explains, they are about to embark on a “worldwide” journey to find love with Sean. Their worldwide journey starts in Montana, which it’s nice to know that even The Bachelor is hit by the economy or one of the producers wants to drive up tourism in Montana. Sean takes the girls to Montana, even though he hasn’t been to Montana before, because he wants to challenge their outdoorsy side. He likes a girl who can wear heels one day and be outdoorsy the next. The girls can fake it till they make it and camping in tents isn’t included so they lucked out.
The first date goes to Lindsay, our wedding dress girl, who managed to secure a developing relationship with Sean. They flew in a helicopter to the Blackfeet Indian Reservation and had a romantic picnic on the hillside. Sean finally admits that he could have sent her home the first night over the wedding dress and the initial awkwardness. He says that she could potentially be his wife, yet it has only been a month. They haven’t even lived with each other and have only known each other for a month! Anyone can be wife material without revealing their living habits or how they handle stressful situations. Sean says he likes Lindsay because she isn’t high maintenance and they just click. She opens up about her childhood and how she moved a lot because her father was in the military. She says she had a long distance relationship with her father because he was deployed and that scared her. Sean says that he understands why she wants a family and that security. He gives her the rose because he doesn’t doubt for a second that she’d make an incredible wife. The next part of their date is a concert with the entire town. They are dancing and making out while Sean’s monologue informs us that they have the perfect balance of being playful as best friends and romantic as the love of your life. He’s really jumping the gun with this already and spewing off ideal expectations.
The group date is with Selma, AshLee, Desiree, Catherine, Sarah, Leslie, Robyn, and Daniella and they’ll be competing in a Montana relay race, which involves milking a goat and then drinking the milk. The red team (Selma, Desiree, Sarah, and Robyn) compete against the blue team (AshLee, Leslie, Daniella, and Catherine) in a canoe race, then running with hay, chopping wood, milking a goat, and then drinking the milk all in the name of individual time with Sean. Desiree chugs the goat’s milk, which she describes as “warm and coming out my nose,” for the win!
The blue team is sent home depressed over losing. The winning team gets to hang out with Sean in a lounge setting and get individual time… or so they think! Sean feels bad for the blue team and invites them to join the red team. The red team is shocked when the blue team arrives and is upset to have their time with Sean cut short. Desiree is the most upset because after all she did drink goat’s milk for this! All the girls chat with Sean, but Daniella gets frustrated with Catherine sitting on Sean’s lap and kissing. She is jealous of the connections Sean has made and is worried it won’t happen with her. Daniella is crying and Sean takes her aside to talk with her and give her a rose.
All it takes are some tears with Sean and a rose is granted. Daniella is learning from Tierra. Robyn is beyond upset because Daniella and the blue team weren’t even supposed to be there. Then in a set up interview where Sean is discussing his thoughts on the date, Tierra arrives behind him and the producers are asking him questions like “are you expecting a surprise?” He’s laughing and covering his face like he knows this is going to happen. Tierra is already prepping for her two-on-one date and trying to get the upper hand.
Prepare yourself for the Tierra Show. Act one: I’m really a nice person, Act two: I don’t start drama, these girls are just jealous, Act three: Crying, injuries all in the name of love, and it goes on and on throughout the season.
