BRAD DOESN'T WAIT LONG TO GIVE OUT HIS FIRST KISS, AS THE WOMEN
TASTE THE HIGH LIFE WITH SIZZLING GROUP DATES AT DEL MAR RACE TRACK
AND THE POLAROID BEACH HOUSE, ON ABC'S "THE BACHELOR"
One Woman Is Rushed to the Hospital After a Frightening Accident,
While Another Shows off Her Assets as She Streaks Into the Ocean
"Episode 1102" � As the 15 remaining bachelorettes settle into their luxurious villa in Malibu, the fairy tale begins. A VIP all-access group date to Del Mar Race Track finds the girls partying with the San Diego Chargers' Shaun Phillips. On the other group date, the Bachelor travels to the Polaroid Beach House, site of some of the hottest celebrity parties, where one bachelorette strips herself of her inhibitions -- and her top. Then emotions run high at an explosive cocktail party where the women bear their claws to fight for Brad's roses, on "The Bachelor," MONDAY, OCTOBER 1 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
On his first group date, Brad takes seven of the striking women to the Del Mar Race Track, where their all-access pass allows them in the paddock with the horses, at the starting gate and in a luxury VIP box, right next to one with San Diego Chargers star linebacker Shaun Phillips, where the party continues. Brad offers a rose to one lucky bachelorette, keeping her safe for the next rose ceremony, as jealousy run rampant among the remaining women.
Back at the villa, one of the ladies has a scary accident and is immediately rushed to the hospital, making it impossible for her to go on her group date with Brad.
The other group date finds the other seven women and the Bachelor going on the sexiest date in Bachelor history when the ladies are treated like the stars who usually frequent the Polaroid Beach House. During a seductive day of swimming and surfing, Brad gets closer to some of the women, sharing valuable one-on-one time and even giving out his first kiss. Another woman is the lucky recipient of a rose as the other envious ladies look on. But the topper comes when the group is taking a steamy dip in the hot tub and Solisa removes her top and streaks to the ocean to cool off.
An emotional and intense cocktail party begins as Brad needs to make another difficult decision. Bettina thinks the timing is right to tell Brad about her recent divorce, but will she have the courage to do it? Jenni breaks down when she overhears other women talking about her being there for the wrong reasons. Her biggest fear comes true when Jade tells Brad all about it. Later, Brad must eliminate three ladies at the rose ceremony, leaving 12 bachelorettes to stay in the race for his heart.
