Bags will be packed when ABC’s “The Bachelorette” returns on June 16 for its fifth episode. Andi Dorfman and her 11 remaining men will continue their journey to find love, but this time, they'll have a slightly different backdrop: Marseille, France.
Josh, who shares an undeniable chemistry with the 26-year-old Atlanta beauty, will land the coveted first one-on-one date of the episode. But Andi’s not just looking to get closer to the former pro baseball player physically. The bachelorette wants to know if the bachelors can “share a more meaningful connection.”
To see if Josh is “too good to be true,” the pair will spend an afternoon in local shops preparing for a romantic picnic. Once they have the fixings for a delicious meal, the duo will head out on a luxury sailboat to take in the breathtaking scenery of the Calanques, “a chain of breathtaking rocky islands off the coast of France.” And the date won’t end there. Andi and Josh will continue their date at Palais Longchamp, where Josh will try to prove to Andi that their attraction “could lead to a real relationship.” He’ll get a surprise when singer-songwriter Ben Fields joins them for a private concert.
For the episode 5 group date, Andi will whisk nine of the guys away for a fun -- yet silent -- day out on the town. Why the silence? They’ll be learning the fascinating art of mime.
Everyone wants to impress the bachelorette; however, one of the contestants will display a pretty serious attitude problem. And that’s not the only drama that Andi will have to deal with during the group date. An “arrogant bachelor” who has been bragging about being a “front-runner” in the competition will be confronted; meanwhile, Marquel will go head-to-head with one man who reportedly made some “reprehensible comments” about him. JJ will try to ease Andi’s mind about the trouble-ridden date, but the “tension” in the episode could potentially lead the bachelorette to change her mind about handing out a group rose.
Brian will land the final one-on-one date with Andi in episode 5. Sparks between the pair flew on the basketball court in episode 4, but their relationship could potentially meet its end thanks to Brian’s discomfort in the kitchen. Things will start off well for the 27-year-old basketball coach when he and Andi attend a private screening of DreamWorks Pictures upcoming movie “The Hundred-Foot Journey.” However, Andi will begin to doubt there's a future with him after a romantic dinner at her apartment takes an uncomfortable turn.
Eleven men will compete in episode 5, but only eight will move on to episode 6. And “Bachelorette” fans will receive a big shocker when Andi makes a surprising last-minute decision during the rose ceremony.
Episode 5 of “The Bachelorette” will air on ABC on June 16 at 8 p.m. EDT. Who do you think will get sent home? Tweet your thoughts (and hopeful wishes) to @AmandaTVScoop.
