THE COMPETITION STARTS FOR TRAVIS� HIS FIRST KISS, AS THE BACHELORETTES
DRAW THE BATTLE LINES WHILE SEEING ROMANTIC PARIS,
ON �THE BACHELOR: PARIS,� MONDAY, JANUARY 16
On The First High Stakes Individual Date, Travis Must Offer The Woman A Rose Or Send Her Home
�Episode 802� � For Travis and a group of the women � all of Paris awaits -- as he escorts some of the ladies to the amazing sites, including the Eiffel Tower. At the top of the L�Arc de Triomphe overlooking the Champs Elysees, Travis� romantic plans for a dinner are a wash-out when rain interrupts the meal, but he still manages to offer one lady a rose in advance to keep her in Paris, on �The Bachelor: Paris,� MONDAY, JANUARY 16 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
The Bachelor�s first one-on-one date goes to Kristen. He even has the forethought to call her mother in advance to ask what her favorite dish is, arranging an intimate dinner for two cruising up the Seine River. The rest of women are curious to see if Kristen � a hopeless romantic � will survive the night since Travis will either offer her a rose or send her home to the U.S. Will her zealous antics to woo him with poetry and other gifts turn him off or on?
On another group date, Travis and the bachelorettes helicopter to Champagne, France, to visit a vineyard where real French bubbly is produced. There the women pull out all the stops to get the one rose that could be offered on the date.
Travis has his hands full the whole time as the ladies compete for his first kiss. So, at the final cocktail party before the rose ceremony, the women turn themselves inside out to vie for his affection. Travis surprises the confident Susan with a birthday cake, which only enrages the jealous Jehan and Tara, who barge into the room to spoil the cozy moment. And an insecure Sarah B. corrals Travis for some alone time to score some final points and maybe that first kiss. Will she succeed?
