WITH THE HOMETOWN DATES LOOMING, BRAD TRIES TO DISCOVER
THE BACHELORETTES' TRUE FEELINGS FOR HIM WHEN THE WOMEN JOIN HIM
FOR ROMANTIC DATES AND A SEXY BIKINI PARTY, ON "THE BACHELOR,"
MONDAY, OCTOBER 22 ON ABC
Two Individual Dates Make for Enchanted Evenings
"Episode 1105" � Now the pressure is really on, as Brad struggles to decide which four women he'll escort home to meet their family and friends. But first, one lucky Bachelorette experiences a fairytale date with the handsome Bachelor, complete with moonlight, music and diamonds. Another lady sets out on a very romantic candlelit picnic with Brad, and on the only group date, four women join Brad at his spectacular bachelor pad for a wet and wild pool party. However, the claws come out and tears reign when the Bachelor needs to get serious, on "The Bachelor," MONDAY, OCTOBER 22 (10:02 -11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
One woman is treated to a romantic tryst, a candlelit picnic at the marina. The evening is capped off with a memorable gondola ride through the canals of a gorgeous southern Californian city. Although the couple set off major sparks, the Bachelorette cannot overcome her fears and put her heart on the line, despite her love for Brad.
Then Brad invites four ladies to his magnificent bachelor house, situated on the cliffs of Malibu, for a sexy day of fun in the sun and a bikini pool party. The group spends the day playing football and indulging in water sports, but one petulant Bachelorette refuses to get her hair wet. Brad gets some more precious one-on-one time with each woman and shares another kiss. He attempts to explain to one lady that he only sees her as a friend, but the Bachelorette misreads his gentle letdown as a way of keeping it secret from the others that he is actually falling for her.
One last elegant individual date is filled with hidden treasures. After slipping into a fabulous evening dress chosen by Brad, the woman also sparkles with a gift of $15,000 Chopard diamond earrings, which she gets to keep. Wrapped in moonlight, the pair dance to the music of a string quartet. This dream-come-true date ends with the hottest of kisses. When the Bachelorette returns home still in Cinderella mode, one envious woman expresses her resentment.
Tensions rise at the cocktail party when Brad must narrow the field to just four women � the four who will invite him into their families' homes � while two leave brokenhearted. It's too much to bear for one of them, leading to one of the most emotional exits in "Bachelor" history.
The six remaining women are:
Bettina, 27, a realtor from Hermosa Beach, CA.
DeAnna, 25, a realtor from Newnan, GA.
Hillary, 27, a registered nurse from Philadelphia, PA.
Jenni, 27, a Phoenix Suns dancer from Wichita, KS.
Kristy, 29, an acupuncturist from Chicago, IL.
Sheena, 23, an internet marketing executive from Walnut Creek, CA.
