Last week's episode 5 of “The Bachelor” ended with a big cliff-hanger when Chris Soules canceled the cocktail party and Kelsey collapsed. Fans of the ABC reality series were left with a “to be continued”; the conclusion to the dramatic rose ceremony will finally air in episode 6 Monday night.
According to the synopsis, “hell breaks loose” when Kelsey has a panic attack and faints. The 10 other remaining girls are uncertain if Kelsey is faking it, especially since Chris said his decision to cancel the cocktail party stemmed from a conversation he'd had with her earlier that day. Either way, the rose ceremony will happen, and two contestants will be sent home.
After the rose ceremony the "Bachelor” group will be back on the road, traveling to Deadwood, South Dakota, to get “a taste of the Wild West.” The first lucky lady to get a one-on-one date with Chris will spend the afternoon with him at Black Hills National Forest. The pair will enjoy a romantic horseback ride and an “intimate dinner.” Things will heat up, with Chris wanting to move forward with their first kiss -- but is the bachelorette ready to take their relationship to the next level?
The following day Chris will go on a group date with a handful of the ladies, and things will take an interesting turn. Tension is high as some of the girls are “sick and tired of Kelsey’s ‘act.’ ” Will they tell Chris what’s going on behind his back? Viewers will have to wait and see, but the highlight will be a visit from country stars Big & Rich. The ladies will be excited to meet the singers; however, their attitude will quickly change when they learn they must write and perform a love song in front of an audience. Some will get stage fright, while others will rise to the occasion. Each contestant will put her heart into it -- but Chris will choose only one woman to take to a sold-out Big & Rich concert.
The final date of episode 6 will be a two-on-one – and it will be “combative,” with one hopeful definitely going home at the end of it. The episode description teases that fans can look forward to “one of the most explosive altercations ever” when the two women begin to bad-mouth each other to Chris.
