Fans of “The Bachelor” will not want to miss episode 3 of Season 19. Chris Soules, a 33-year-old farmer from Iowa, entered the ABC reality show with 30 women fighting for his heart. He managed to narrow down his search for love to 18 contestants, but someone will be crashing the mansion this week – Jimmy Kimmel!
The late night talk show host isn’t trying to win Chris over, but instead will be taking over as the “guest host” for episode 3 … See you later, Chris Harrison!
Those that watch “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” know that the TV personality likes to have fun and enjoy a good laugh. That will definitely continue into his temporary gig on “The Bachelor” as he “helps Chris on his journey to find a wife to bring home to Arlington, Iowa.”
Kaitlyn will get to have the first date of the episode with Chris. The 29-year-old dance instructor from Vancouver, British Columbia has proven to be the wild card on the show; but will Jimmy Kimmel be able to one up her? The synopsis teases that the guest host will trick Chris and Kaitlyn “into believing that they will be going to a high-end members only club for their date.” Whatever trick Jimmy has up his sleeves isn’t clear, but it won’t be the last time that he wreaks havoc on their date. He’ll also crash their “intimate dinner” later that night.
The group date in episode 3 will consist of 12 women. Just like last week, the contestants will engage in a “farm-themed” adventure – a “relay race to see if they can handle being a farmer’s wife.” The plot description reveals that not only will the ladies have to milk a goat and shovel manure, but they’ll also have to wrestle a greased pig.
Who will win? “The Bachelor” viewers will have to wait and see. But in usual fashion, some drama will outshine the winner. Thanks to the never-ending flow of cocktails on the reality show, one contestant will become a bit of a handful. With the courage enhancing alcohol on her side, this mystery lady will call Chris out on the “number of women he is kissing.” (In episode 2 he kissed five women before the rose ceremony.)
The third and final date of the episode will go to Whitney, a 29-year-old fertility nurse from Chicago, Illinois. Things will start off low key as they spend the day in wine country, however the date will spice up a little bit when they decide to crash a wedding. The pair poses as friends of the bride … but will someone discover that they’re simply just wedding crashers?
Jimmy Kimmel will return for the cocktail party to give the women “one last surprise.” And of course it wouldn’t be an episode of “The Bachelor” if there weren’t some “epic meltdown.” However, the night will take a serious turn when Juelia, a 30-year-old single mom from Portland, Oregon, opens up to Chris about her “tragic” past.
Only 15 women will be moving on at the end of episode 3. Watch a new episode of “The Bachelor” on Monday, Jan. 19, at 8 p.m. EST.
