“Hello Vietnam!” On Monday, Feb. 3, “The Bachelor” will be leaving Seoul, South Korea and heading on over to Vietnam. Eleven girls remain in the running for Juan Pablo’s heart, but jealousy is going to flare when the single dad is caught paying extra attention to one lucky lady.
The end of episode 4 found Lauren and Elise getting sent home. With Renee, Chelsie, Kelly, Danielle, Cassandra, Alli and Clare still in the game, not one, but two of the bachelorette’s will hit the jackpot when they land one-on-one dates with Juan Pablo in episode 5. The rest of the girls will have a group date with the bachelor, but by the end of the episode only eight women will be moving forward into week 6.
First One-On-One Date
Juan Pablo’s first one-on-one date for episode 5 will be with 32-year-old single mom Renee. The real estate agent has been busy helping the rest of the girls in the house deal with their insecurities for the past few weeks, but this time she’ll be getting some much needed (and wanted!) alone time with the bachelor. The pair will have a magical day exploring the city of Hoi A, but Juan Pablo has a surprise up his sleeves to make it that much more special --gifting Renee with a tailor-made dress to wear to their romantic dinner date! Renee’s been dying to kiss the bachelor. Will she find enough courage tonight and let him know how she’s feeling?
Nine of the girls get whisked away to the countryside for some fun in the sun with Juan Pablo. The ladies pair up for their date, but the one woman left alone gets the pleasure of pairing up with the bachelor. While that lucky lady is happy with her partner (and shows it by stealing a “romantic kiss”), the rest of the bachelorette’s are upset by the extra attention that she’s receiving from the single dad.
But that’s not the only thing upsetting Andi. The 26-year-old assistant district attorney has developed feelings for Juan Pablo, but doubts the strength of their connection since she hasn’t had a one-on-one date yet. Andi will voice her concerns, but Juan Pablo’s response remains a mystery for now.
The group date drama will continue into the beachside cocktail party when Juan Pablo brings Clare to his private pool for some one-on-one time. Clare makes a “daring offer” in attempt to extend her time with him. Could that be why she’s crying in the promo video for episode 5?
Second One-On-One Date
With the group date drama behind him, Juan Pablo will be taking Nikki on her first one-on-one date. But like Chelsie’s tandem jump adventure, Nikki’s extremely frightened of the day he has planned for them -- rappelling 100 feet into a dark cave named “hell.” The bachelorette must face her fears to get to the surprise at the bottom -- a candlelit dinner for two!
The Rose Ceremony
As Juan Pablo gets to know his bachelorette’s better, it becomes harder for him to eliminate them. That proves to be true in episode 5 because the synopsis teases that it’s the “most dramatic cocktail party of the season.” The bachelor will try to reassure some women that they share a connection and he wants them to stay. But a “face off” with Clare will leave her in tears, and she won’t be the only one crying -- the bachelor will shed some tears as well.
Episode 5 of “The Bachelor” will air on ABC on Monday, Feb. 3 at 8 p.m. EST. What do you think will happen? Who do you think will get sent home? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section or send a tweet to @AmandaTVScoop.
