TENSIONS RUN HIGH IN THE HOUSE AS THE REMAINING WOMEN GET CAUGHT UP IN THE ONGOING BATTLE BETWEEN SARAH W. AND KRISILY, ON ABC'S "THE BACHELOR," MONDAY, APRIL 18
An Ambush Rose Ceremony Forces Charlie to Make
Immediate and Crucial Eliminations
"Episode 704" - It's crunch time for Charlie, as he needs to eliminate two women before going on the hometown dates - and it's tears and fears for the ladies. Charlie begins with a horseback riding date with Sarah B., who is excited to have some one-on-one time with him but scared to be on a horse, having been bucked off before. A fencing competition between women to decide on another individual date ends in tears for Krisily, who claims she is claustrophobic and wearing the fencing mask is making her hysterical. The house rocks with drama as the rivalry between Sarah W. and Krisily escalates when they unleash their true feelings of hatred for one another at a spa. Neither woman can stand to be in the other's company, and they only do so because they have feelings for Charlie. And an ambush rose ceremony puts an exciting exclamation mark to Charlie's decision, as he must decide which four women will take him home to meet their parents, on "The Bachelor," MONDAY, APRIL 18 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
Charlie's horseback riding date with Sarah B. gets off to a rocky start with her phobia about being thrown from the horse. A sympathetic Charlie lets her just watch as he rides, and later they have an intimate conversation in the hayloft, where they discuss past relationships and what they hope for in future ones. However Sarah B. informs him that Sarah W. has told her that Charlie isn't going to keep her, which upsets him.
Back at the house, the women head to a spa to get manicures and pedicures, and where Krisily and Sarah W. butt heads over who is the main diva in the house -- stirring up the drama -- and who is there for the right reasons. It ends with Krisily in tears.
Chris Harrison surprises everyone when he informs the women that, in order to earn the next one-on-one date with Charlie, they must compete in fencing, one of his specialties. Krisily has a meltdown about wearing the mask, as she claims to be claustrophobic. However she desperately wants the one-on-time with Charlie. It is no surprise that Sarah W. remains unconvinced that Krisily really has a problem, and that her tears aren't just a ploy to wrangle a date.
Catching the women off guard in the early hours of the morning, Charlie arrives unannounced to have breakfast with the ladies, as he still has some questions for the bachelorettes before that night's rose ceremony. But Chris has one more surprise for everyone - there is an "ambush" rose ceremony, immediately! So the ladies line up for the rose ceremony in their "just-out-of-bed" clothing, and Charlie must make one of his most difficult decisions right then and there, eliminating two of the women on the spot.

Anitra, 29, makeup artist, who currently resides in Manhattan Beach, CA
