JILLIAN TURNS UP THE HEAT WITH THE MOST DARING DATE IN
"BACHELORETTE" HISTORY, PLUS AN OLD WEST BAR ROOM BRAWL
AND A CLASSIC CAR DATE, ON ABC'S "THE BACHELORETTE"
"Episode 503" - The ever-adventurous Bachelorette invites one man to take a leap of faith with her on a daredevil date, rappelling 33 stories down the side of a hotel. Then the Wild West is caught on film as 11 bachelors in full costume visit a Western set to shoot classic cowboy scenes, but some are more interested in rehearsing their romantic lines and screen kisses with Jillian. On another one-on-one date a bachelor is in seventh heaven when he gets an up-close look at premium vintage cars. Late that night still another man sneaks up to the mansion looking for a romantic tryst with the Bachelorette. Then two men face off before the rose ceremony when one bachelor's anger boils over. When Jillian gets down to business, some good guys will be sent home when she decides they're just not right for her, on "The Bachelorette," MONDAY, JUNE 1 (8:00-10:02 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
After a helicopter tour of Los Angeles, Jillian and one unsuspecting bachelor land on the top of the landmark Bonaventure Hotel. Problem is, there is only one way down for the couple -- they must rappel 33 stories down to the pool. After their heart-stopping zip down the side of the hotel, they share not only a romantic dinner on the rooftop overlooking Los Angeles but also common concerns about choosing between their careers and love. Will Jillian give him a rose or send him home?
Jillian invites 11 bachelors to a film shoot on a classic Western set, but the guys are surprised to find out that they're the actors and Jillian is their leading lady. Dressed in Old West costumes, they rehearse their parts, including the re-creation of a bar room brawl. The lucky men who get to share a screen kiss with Jillian are eyed jealously by the others, but it's only acting - or is it? After a long day, the group celebrates at a swank Hollywood wrap party, including a screening of their film and a dip in a gigantic hot tub. One man also receives a much-coveted rose.
One bachelor is thrilled when Jillian takes him on a private trip to Peterson Automotive Museum, filled with vintage cars. Then the couple jump into a Ferrari, racing though the streets of Hollywood. The two also get into a serious conversation about love, and Jillian's date reveals that he has never been in love before. Again, she is faced with a decision about whether to offer this bachelor a rose or send him home immediately. Later that night, one man is on a mission, creeping up to the villa determined to have some romantic alone time with Jillian.
The battle for Jillian's heart heats up right before the rose ceremony, as a dramatic confrontation is set up between two of the men, with one bachelor targeting another man he has grown to dislike intensely. Jillian must narrow the field to 13 by evening's end, and there are a few good men who will be disappointed.
