For the First Time Ever, an Exhausted Bachelor Cancels an Individual Date

"Episode 703" -- Kimberley chooses an extremely seductive outfit to wear on her one-on-one date with Charlie, but she receives a "dressing down" from some of the women, as they tell her -- quite frankly-- that it's extremely inappropriate. Charlie takes her to an art gallery and, in a sweet surprise, shows off some of his own childhood artwork. Then he decides to take her back to his bachelor pad to spend more time with her. Meanwhile, the women back at the house decide not to be outdone by their scantily clad roommate, Kimberley, and parade around in their sexiest outfits in a mock "tribute" to her sexy sense of fashion. When the hour starts to get late and Kimberley hasn't returned from her date, the speculation among the women runs rampant - and they call Charlie's place to get the lowdown. Did Kimberley get a rose? Will she spend the night with Charlie? Tune in and find out, on "The Bachelor," MONDAY, APRIL 11 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

The next day Charlie and a group of the women go bowling. Not surprisingly, one of the ladies attempts to dominate Charlie's time, causing some of the women to feel insecure about their status with the bachelor. And with extreme honesty, a tired Charlie admits that his late night with Kimberley left him a bit weary for their group date. Not only that, he needs to postpone his second one-on-one date with Kara because he is so exhausted. When they finally meet, Charlie and Kara have fun ice skating in Central Park. However, during the date, Kara, the single mom, challenges Charlie about whether or not he is really ready to take on the responsibilities of dating a single mother.

And in one of the most talked-about new changes in "Bachelor" format, the women get to dish about Charlie and each other again in the free-for-all before the next rose ceremony. During the ceremony, Charlie gives as good as he gets, but he must eliminate two of the eight remaining women.

The eight women are:

Anitra, 29, makeup artist, who currently resides in Manhattan Beach, CA
Jenny, 23, marketing coordinator, who currently resides in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Kara, 26, nanny, who currently resides in Woodland Hills, CA
Kimberley, 25, swimsuit model, who currently resides in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Kindle, 23, pro basketball cheerleader, who currently resides in Rockwall, TX
Krisily, 25, salon coordinator, who currently resides in Warwick, RI
Sarah B, 24, labor & delivery nurse, who currently resides in McKinney, TX
Sarah W, 24, in fashion design, who currently resides in Los Angeles, CA
