EMOTIONS RUN HIGH AS BRAD AND THE NINE REMAINING WOMEN
BECOME CLOSER AND A DRAMATIC COCKTAIL PARTY SENDS SHOCKWAVES
THROUGHOUT THE GROUP, ON "THE BACHELOR," MONDAY, OCTOBER 15
Roses Are at Stake on All Three Dates, Leaving Some Women in Tears
"Episode 1104" � A very intimate, romantic date finds Brad and one lucky Bachelorette on a breathtaking panoramic helicopter ride over Los Angeles. On another special extravagant date, the sexy Texan escorts two ladies to a spectacular private residence in Marina Del Rey. Six Bachelorettes on a laugh-filled group date are surprised to discover they must try out their improvisational skills at a Los Angeles comedy club. However, the tensions between the women are ratcheted up once shocking secrets are shared, and Brad has difficulty discovering which women are there for the right reasons � whether they cry or not -- on "The Bachelor," MONDAY, OCTOBER 15 (10:02-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
Brad swoops down on the women's mansion in a helicopter to pick up Jenni for an exhilarating tour of Los Angeles' twinkling skyline, much to the dismay of the other teary-eyed Bachelorettes, most notably, Hillary. When they land on a rooftop, the happy couple share a cozy dinner for two, but there is a rose on the line. Will this woman get to stay or go home?
Six ladies take center stage at LA's Comedy Sportz and must perform improv exercises for the Bachelor and the crowd. The pressure is more than one Bachelorette can take and she breaks down and cries on stage. Meanwhile, Brad gets to know the women better and offers one of the ladies a rose because she was able to come out of her shell and reveal more about herself.
Then Brad is faced with the first in a series of difficult decisions when he goes on a dramatic two-on-one date where one woman gets a rose and the other goes home in tears. It's all set against the opulent backdrop of a fabulous private residence in Marina Del Rey, California.
Back at the mansion, the women uncover Bettina's closely held stunning secret. And as the electrifying cocktail party unfolds, the women put their newly honed improv skills to the test and question Brad about which Bachelorette was the recipient of his first kiss. When he reveals that it was Jenni, the rest of the ladies confront her about it. Many of the overwrought women are brought to tears as McCarten tries to guard a secret of her own, Sheena tries to remind Brad she is there for the right reasons and Bettina sobs just because she cares so much for the Bachelor and is afraid of being sent home.
After an incredibly emotional rose ceremony, Brad must pare down the group from nine to six women.
The nine remaining women are:
Bettina, 27, a realtor from Hermosa Beach, CA.
DeAnna, 25, a realtor from Newnan, GA.
Estefania, 26, an executive assistant from Atlanta, GA.
