Ben has a 1-on-1 date with Kacie Boguskie, watching home movies. They also go into town shopping. She buys a baton and shows off her twirling skills with it. They grow closer watching home movies of Ben’s late father.
In the group date, twelve of the girls audition for a play that children are staging. The women are called upon individually to perform a series of embarrassing impersonations for Ben and the children. After casting the women in roles ranging from a princess to a weasel, Ben drops another bombshell: the performance will take place that night in front of a live audience. One anxious bachelorette flubs her lines, but recovers nicely and steals the show and a kiss from Ben. You can see who in our photo.
Blake is shameless in this Bachelor episode. That causes poor Samantha to rush to the bathroom in tears.
Next is a 1-on-1 date with Courtney Robertson for a romantic picnic. Ben’s dog Scotch gets in on the act too. They share a moonlight tractor ride at a winery.
It’s much calmer than the cocktail party, where the women bitch, steal Ben, cry and generally over-dramatize the situation.
At this point, Jenna Burke and Shawn Reynolds are eliminated at the rose ceremony. So it looks like Jenna isn’t forgiven for last week.
