A Dramatic Two-on-One Date Guarantees One Man a Ticket Home

Are There Really Bachelors Who Have Girlfriends Waiting for Them?

"Episode 504" � Jillian goes home to Vancouver and the 13 remaining bachelors excitedly follow her, all anxious that they fit in with her lifestyle. In a true Canadian adventure, Jillian invites a group of the men on a competitive curling date, but only the winning team gets to join her for a romantic sunset cruise around the city of Vancouver. Kiptyn is the lucky man to receive an intimate one-on-one date and a home-cooked meal back at Jillian's place. But the dreaded two-on-one date involves two very different bachelors vying for the one rose and ends on a snow-covered mountain with one man being sent home heartbroken. However, when one of the bachelors discloses to Jillian that some of the men supposedly have girlfriends back home, she demands the truth from those bachelors, throwing the rose ceremony into turmoil, on "The Bachelorette," MONDAY, JUNE 8 (8:00-10:02 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Jillian's first one-one-one date in Canada goes to Kiptyn, who caught her attention right from the start. They share a very romantic evening, kayaking to Jillian's favorite market to pick up all the ingredients for the home cooked meal she will prepare for the two of them. Back at her place, the couple has a serious conversation about love, and Kiptyn reveals a flaw that has hindered him in past relationships. Is there a rose in his future?

As Vancouver gears up to host the 2010 Winter Olympics, ten men go on an Olympic sports date that is inherently Canadian -- competitive curling. But the losing team goes back to the hotel, while the winners join Jillian on a real crabbing boat for a picturesque sunset cruise around the city. Each of the five men tries his best to charm the Bachelorette, but one man's attempt at flirting ends up an embarrassing disaster. Jillian finally gives a rose to the man who truly impressed her on the date.

Both men on the two-on-one date are extremely anxious as they meet Jillian at beautiful Stanley Park. The trio is whisked away in a helicopter for stunning city views, landing at Grouse Mountain, where a snowball fight relieves some of the tension. Each bachelor takes a different tack with Jillian at dinner: one acts like he's on a one-on-date with the Bachelorette and lays his heart on the line, and the other, feeling like a third wheel, decides to hold back and relies on his ability to make Jillian laugh to keep him in the hunt for her heart. In the end, she gives one man a rose and the other, crushed, is sent back down the mountain and home.

At the dramatic cocktail party, Jillian is in for some stunning news. One bachelor reveals that some of the guys may have girlfriends waiting for them at home. Shocked and tearful, Jillian abruptly cancels the rest of the party, and tempers flare among the men as they're left to contemplate her accusations. In the deliberation room, Chris Harrison offers to help Jillian find out the truth, but he also warns her that she may not be happy with what she learns. What if it turns out to be someone she's really falling for? At the rose ceremony Chris gives the men a chance to tell Jillian the truth. What happens when she hears what they have to say, and how will it affect whom she decides to give roses to?
