THE WINTER WONDERLAND OF ALBERTA, CANADA, IS THE BACKDROP FOR BIG DRAMA AND SHOCKING ELIMINATIONS, AS SEAN COMES TO A HEARTBREAKING DECISION, ONABC'S "THE BACHELOR"

The Two-Night Bachelor Event Concludes Tuesday, February 5, At a Special Time, 9:00-11:00 p.m., ET with an All-New Episode

"Episode 1706" - The two-night "Bachelor" special event concludes as Sean continues his journey around the world to find love, taking the nine remaining bachelorettes to spectacular Alberta, Canada. Catherine gets the first one-on-one date in Canada, meeting Sean on a remote glacier at Jasper National Park, followed by a fairy tale dinner in a magnificent ice castle. On the group date, Sean implores the seven women to strip down to their bathing suits and take a polar bear plunge in icy cold Lake Louise, but there are a few women who cause problems. The evening ends with Sean supplying an unexpected surprise. Desiree receives a terrifying individual date when the couple needs to rappel 400 feet down a cliff in Banff National Park. Nerves are at an all-time high, and Sean's feelings are growing for all of the women, but six will remain at the end of the night, on "The Bachelor," TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 5 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Catherine and Sean share a romantic tryst on a glacier in Jasper National Park as they are set to embark on a rugged joy ride in a monster snow truck. But will the blizzard-like weather freeze their chance to spark a connection? The winter fairy tale continues as they travel to a sparkling ice castle built just for them�even down to the roses frozen in the ice. Catherine will attempt to show her more serious side in hopes of melting Sean's heart and snagging a rose.

Sean leads seven women on a breathtaking canoe ride across the pristine glacial waters of Lake Louise. But then the Bachelor reveals his big surprise: he invites them to strip down to their swimsuits and jump into the near-freezing waters of the lake in a spine-chilling polar bear plunge. One woman refuses to participate, and yet another does but comes up "blue" and needs medical attention. She still shows up at the after party, but will this damsel in distress win a rose? Or will Sean reward another woman with whom he has forged a romantic connection?

The night isn't over, and Sean realizes that his relationship with one woman has run its course. Out of compassion, he feels he needs to say good-bye now. Feeling that this is for the best, he tries to let the devastated bachelorette down easy.

The next day, bubbly Desiree can't wait to get her second one-on-one date with Sean, but she might not feel the same when he takes her on a harrowing rappelling adventure down a terrifying 400-foot cliff. After the challenge, the two share an intimate conversation in a warm teepee hidden in the woods. Will Desiree open up and be more vulnerable with Sean or continue to push him away?

The drama ramps up as the rose ceremony draws close. It all leads to heart-wrenching and shocking exits. But the final six women get ready to pack their bags to travel to beautiful St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

AshLee, 32, personal organizer, Houston, TX

DESCRIPTION:
(from ABC's press release, August 2014) Millions of single women had mixed emotions when Chris Soules, the stylish farmer from Iowa, was sent home by Andi Dorfman on "The Bachelorette." One of the final three men, Chris was dismissed after he had emotionally confessed his love to Andi, but that meant the handsome bachelor was back on the market. Now, he is ready to put his heartache behind him to search for the one missing piece in his life - true love - when he stars in the 19th edition of ABC's hit romance reality series, "The Bachelor," which returns to ABC in January 2015. The announcement was made this morning on "Good Morning America." The 32-year-old Midwestern bachelor and self-proclaimed romantic has been engaged once before. Heartbroken, Chris ended that seven-year relationship just months before he expected to walk down the aisle. Although his relationship with his fiancée was good, he didn't want to settle for "good." He wanted "great." While the humble but enormously successful farmer from tiny Arlington, Iowa (pop. 427) has found it difficult to date, that hasn't stopped him from having faith that one day he will find the perfect woman for him. His experience on "The Bachelorette" made him realize that love really is out there, and he is confident that he will find it this time on "The Bachelor."
