SIX BACHELORETTES CLOWN AROUND WITH BRAD AT THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH,
AND THE CIRCUS CONTINUES WITH A DECEPTIVE SWITCH BY BRAD AND HIS TWIN
BROTHER, CHAD, THAT SHOCKS SOME OF THE WOMEN, ON ABC'S "THE BACHELOR"
"Episode 1103" � Six women go on a behind-the-scenes group date under the big top, while five bikini-clad beauties spend a day sailing with Brad. One lucky Bachelorette is showered with a half-a-million dollars in jewels on the first glamorous one-on-one date, and in one of the most shocking "Bachelor" twists ever, Brad and his twin, Chad, put the ladies to the ultimate test, on "The Bachelor," MONDAY, OCTOBER 8 (9:36-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
On the first group date, six Bachelorettes get an all-access pass to the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus, where they get the VIP treatment and take center ring with Brad as he announces the Ring Master for the evening. This fantasy date ends when Brad presents one Bachelorette with a rose in front of thousands of circus-goers, while the other women look on in envy. Meanwhile, back at the house, the women left behind trash the ladies on the circus date, calling one "McNasty" and another "McSkanky."
Brad adorns one lucky Bachelorette with a treasure trove of Chopard jewels and flies her on a private jet to San Francisco for an evening of romance and elegance with a rose on the line. The jealous women left back at the mansion place bets on whether she will stay or go home.
On the second group date, five women set sail with the Bachelor on a vintage three-masted sailing ship in hopes of winning his affection. During a sexy day of jet skiing and sailing, Brad spends individual time with some of the women. Bettina finally reveals the secret about her past divorce, and Kristy comes full circle from being reserved to showing Brad her fun side. But will that be enough to keep her from elimination?
Brad's confusion about the women mounts, and in the first twist of its kind in "Bachelor" history, he calls on his identical twin brother, Chad, to pose in his place, hoping to reveal which of the women really know Brad and which do not. Some of the women, clearly fooled when told of the switch, worry that might leave them out in the cold at the rose ceremony. Then Brad must send three ladies home in heartbreak, as he narrows the field from 12 Bachelorettes to nine.

Bettina, 27, a realtor from Hermosa Beach, CA.
