A GROUP OF BACHELORETTES ENJOY A SPIRITED DATE OF TENNIS AND TEA,
MATT FULFILLS HIS VINTAGE AMERICANA FANTASY ON AN INDIVIDUAL DATE TO
SANTA MONICA PIER, AND A HIGH STAKES TWO-ON-ONE DATE ENDS IN TEARS,
ON ABC'S "THE BACHELOR: LONDON CALLING," MONDAY, APRIL 7
"Episode 1204" -- The nine remaining bachelorettes are falling hard for Matt. Six women are treated to a delightful afternoon of tennis and a proper English tea, but the date ends with one woman in tears. Matt experiences a slice of Americana, as he and Amanda go out for an evening of 1950s classic cars, burgers and fun on Santa Monica Pier. And the stakes are especially high on a special two-on-one home cooking date with Marshana and Holly; Matt must choose and give a rose to one woman, sending the other home immediately, on "The Bachelor: London Calling," MONDAY, APRIL 7 (10:02-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
Six ladies join Matt center-court for a fun afternoon of tennis. Ashlee and Chelsea excel on court, while Kelly and Shayne take the game less seriously, doing handstands on the sidelines and flashing their underwear. When Matt invites the women to a proper English tea, Robin -- the least liked woman in the house -- tries to monopolize Matt's attention with her knowledge of England. When the other bachelorettes confront Robin about her behavior, she breaks down in tears, claiming that she doesn't understand them. Matt finally hands out a rose to one of the bachelorettes, keeping her safe for the next rose ceremony.
Matt steps back in time to the 1950s with Amanda R. for a memorable individual date, enjoying an evening of vintage cars, burgers and fun on Santa Monica Pier. At a retro diner, he shares a dance and a kiss with her, then has to decide whether to hand her a rose to completely fulfill his American fantasy.
On the two-on-one date, Marshana and Holly join Matt at his swanky Bachelor pad for an evening of home cooking. While the two bachelorettes enjoy Matt's company and his cuisine, the women back at the mansion heatedly debate which of the two will be sent home. By the end of the evening, Matt offers a rose to one woman, while the other leaves brokenhearted in tears. As that bachelorette's bags are being taken away at the mansion, the remaining women stare in disbelief, shocked by Matt's decision.
The conversations become more serious at the cocktail party as each woman tries to convince Matt to give her a rose. Ashlee reassures the Bachelor of her intentions; Amanda confides her fears about the other women; and Kelly tries to impress Matt by behaving more outrageously than ever. After an incredibly emotional rose ceremony, Matt must pare down the group from nine to six women.
The nine women are:
Amanda R., 27, an account executive from Niceville, FL.
Ashlee, 22, a singer/songwriter from Jacksonville Beach, FL.
