WITH JILLIAN ON A SPECTACULAR CANADIAN CROSS-COUNTRY TRAIN RIDE,
AS THE CRUCIAL HOMETOWN DATES LOOM, ON ABC'S "THE BACHELORETTE"
"Episode 506" � The pressure mounts as Jillian must decide which five men will have the opportunity to take her home to meet their families. But first, the remaining eight bachelors are treated to an exclusive private train ride on the famed Rocky Mountaineer, traveling over 650 miles across the Canadian Rockies with breathtaking stops along the way. Roses are up for grabs on two crucial individual dates and one group date. If a bachelor does not receive a rose on the individual date, he must leave the train at the next station. The men ramp up their pursuit as the situation gets more serious, with one guy sneaking around for extra alone time with the Jillian, another putting on a spectacular display and yet another pleading to stay. It's obvious the bachelors' anxiety has reached an all-time peak, but in the end Jillian will offer her final five roses without hesitation to those lucky men, on "The Bachelorette," MONDAY, JUNE 22 (8:00-10:02 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
As the romantic journey starts aboard Canada's Rocky Mountaineer, Jillian invites one fortunate man to her private car before the couple enjoys an intimate dinner under the domed roof of the observation car. But even this one-on-one date doesn't deter one bachelor from slinking around Jillian's private car late at night for some much-desired alone time to drive his point home to her about keeping him around.
Six bachelors receive an invitation from Jillian to snowshoe to a beautiful mountain lodge for cocktails and serious conversation. A roaring fire sets the mood, as one man successfully maneuvers for a kiss and still another makes his move as well. One bachelor goes for broke in a desperate last chance to assure himself a rose. But it is left for one man to pull out all the stops with at jaw-dropping display in front of Jillian and the other bachelors. However, five of the men are in agreement that one particular remaining bachelor is really not there for Jillian, but they don't understand why she doesn't seem to realize it.
Before her last one-on-one date, one the men from the group date makes a last heartfelt plea to Jillian, hoping it will guarantee him a rose. Then on the other individual date, Jillian goes snowboarding in Lake Louise. The couple enjoys a private outdoor dining room sculpted entirely from ice, with magnificent views and a champagne toast before returning to Jillian's hotel suite for a cozy fondue feast. Sparks fly, but is it enough for her to keep this guy around for a hometown visit?
The train reaches its final destination at the picturesque town of Banff. After weighing her options, Jillian asks Chris Harrison for on more private chat with one of the men about whom she has profound reservations.
