MATT DOESN'T WAIT LONG TO BESTOW HIS FIRST KISS, AS THE WOMEN
ATTEMPT TO OUT-STRUT EACH OTHER AS MODELS IN A SEXY FASHION SHOW
AND TASTE THE HIGH LIFE WITH A SIZZLING GROUP DATE IN LAS VEGAS,
ON ABC'S "THE BACHELOR: LONDON CALLING," MONDAY, MARCH 24
"Episode 1202" � As the 15 remaining bachelorettes settle into their luxurious villa in Malibu, the fairy tale begins. Matt starts by escorting eight gorgeous women to a sexy fashion show, and when they discover that they are the models, the ladies proceed to try and out-strut each other on the runway. The handsome Brit whisks the other seven women off to Las Vegas for a glamorous evening of gambling and partying like rock stars. Then emotions run high at an explosive cocktail party where the women bear their claws to fight for Matt's roses, on "The Bachelor: London Calling," MONDAY, MARCH 24 (10:02-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
On the first group date, Matt takes eight bachelorettes to a fashion show, only to reveal that the only models on the catwalk will be them. The private fashion show for the Bachelor turns into a temptress battle as the women attempt to impress Matt with their sexy moves on the runway. Later, at a swank Hollywood hotel, Matt escorts the women to a chic after-party where Marshana confronts Matt about his feelings on interracial dating. Michelle P. professes her love for Matt by singing him a song she wrote specially for him. Matt wastes no time by giving out his first kiss of the season to one lucky bachelorette and then immediately handing her a rose, exclaiming that she was "the hottest thing on the runway." Back at the house, the jealousy over the rose is fierce, with one of the women embarrassing the rose recipient for her juvenile gloating behavior in front of all the other girls.
Matt treats a second group of seven women to a glittering evening at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino. With a rose at stake, he ups the ante and challenges the women to collect the most chips in one hour of gambling to win some special quality time with him. Robin breaks the rules and pulls Matt aside for her own one-on-one time with him, while Shayne decides to bet it all on roulette and loses. At the end of the contest, the winning bachelorette is treated to an exclusive champagne and dessert one-on-one with the Bachelor. Shayne, upset at losing her chance to spend time with Matt, has an emotional confrontation with the Bachelor that doesn't go well.
Later that evening at the after party, the bachelorettes show off their talents in an effort to snatch the date rose. Robin plays classical piano for Matt while Chelsea lays her heart on the line. When Matt finally gives out his rose for that night, the rest of the women stare with daggers in their eyes at the one he chooses to keep safe. Shayne, afraid that she's ruined her chances forever, ends up in the ladies room crying.
An emotional and intense cocktail party begins as Matt needs to make another difficult decision. However, the women are not through yet competing for his roses: Carri sings opera, Marshana steals a slow dance and Shayne tries to save herself. Later, Matt must eliminate three ladies at the rose ceremony, leaving 12 bachelorettes to stay in the race for his heart.
