Welcome to Miami! "The Bachelor” is moving into its seventh episode, which means that only six women remain – and they’re going to be spending time with Juan Pablo in his hometown of Miami.
While the number of ladies is dwindling, the format of the series remains the same. The episode will find two lucky women receiving one-on-one dates with the 32-year-old single dad, and the four remaining heading out on a group date. But with everyone believing that they have a strong connection with Juan Pablo, hearts are going to break when he’s forced to send two contestants home at the end of the episode.
First One-On-One Date
Sharleen lands the first coveted one-on-one date, but what makes it really special is that Juan Pablo personally delivers the date card to her. The opera singer is surprised that she has an individual date in his hometown, but Juan Pablo is doing his best to make sure that she knows how important their connection is to him.
The bachelor takes Sharleen on a private yacht, where the two proceed to heat things up by passionately kissing and doing a little snuggling. They move onto a private island for the rest of their date, but will the time alone with Juan Pablo make Sharleen more confident about their relationship? Or will it lead her to make a devastating decision to leave?
Second One-On-One Date
Nikki lands the second one-on-one date in Miami with Juan Pablo. He brings the pediatric nurse to a florist, so their day might not be as secluded and romantic as Sharleen’s – but it definitely means more. It turns out that the flowers aren’t for Nikki … but instead for Camila, Juan Pablo’s 4-year-old daughter. Nikki is the lucky bachelorette who Juan Pablo decides to bring to Camila’s dance recital, and it’s up to Nikki to give the bouquet to his daughter. Nikki’s surprised when she meets Camila’s mom and Juan Pablo’s parents. When she finally meets Camila she’s introduced as her dad’s “special friend.” But will Nikki’s nerves blow the important first meeting? And will Camila like Nikki? A rose is definitely on the line for the bachelorette.
With only four women on a group date, things are getting more intense. Andi, Chelsie, Clare and Renee head off to a private island to spend time with Juan Pablo. But in a surprising twist, Juan Pablo decides not to do a cocktail party with the four girls. Instead he gives one of them a rose and sends the remaining three back to the hotel. That one lucky woman will not only spend the rest of the day and night with Juan Pablo, but she’ll also be treated to a special performance from Latin music superstar Romeo Santos. And while the mysterious lucky woman might be enjoying a magical night, the three others are “jealous” and “seething.”
But Juan Pablo’s group date turned one-on-one date isn’t the only drama that “Bachelor” viewers can look expect. As he’s enjoying his time, the three rejected bachelorettes and Nikki will get into an argument back at the hotel. According to the synopsis, “the situation escalates when Nikki gets into it with another woman and they face off in one of the most explosive confrontations of the season.” And unfortunately their showdown won’t end before the pre-rose ceremony cocktail party. The pair will end up in “the ultimate awkward silent stand-off.”
Only four women will be moving onto week 8 and have the opportunity to bring Juan Pablo to their hometowns to meet their families. Who do you think will get sent home at the end of episode 7? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section or send a tweet to @AmandaTVScoop.
