A GAME OF STREET BASKETBALL SEPARATES THE MEN FROM THE BOYS,
AND ONE MAN BREAKS DOWN IN TEARS DURING A DATE,
ON ABC'S "THE BACHELORETTE"
R& B/Pop Vocalist and Actress Vanessa Williams Is Spotlighted in a Private Performance At Harlem's Cotton Club, and One Lucky Guy Takes a High Stakes Trip With Jen to Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut
"Episode 303" - The men square off in a very physical game of street basketball, and are not afraid to slam one another to the ground if it means they will get some one-on-one time with Jen. As one team prevails, one special guy wins a romantic date with Jen to Harlem's Cotton Club, where the couple is serenaded with a special private performance by Lava Records' R&B/pop vocalist and actress Vanessa Williams. During the date, things get emotional as Jen's date breaks down about a past love. Then Jen steals away one of the guys on a helicopter ride to the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut, where the stakes couldn't be any higher. Back at the house, the guys question Fabrice's interest in marriage, and jealousy about the individual dates begins to brew. The remaining six guys hang out with her in Central Park. Jen and the guys engage in a friendly game of football, and the guys struggle to find time to spend with her alone. Realizing that time is of the essence, one guy steals her away for a romantic walk, another takes her out on a rowboat and another sweeps her away for a cozy chat under a tree. At the rose ceremony, things start getting serious when Jen must send two of the eight men home, on "The Bachelorette," MONDAY, JANUARY 24 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
The eight remaining men are:
