On Jan. 29, ABC executives revealed details about the network’s plan to extend “The Bachelor” to two nights next week for a double dose of Sean Lowe. The bachelor whisks his remaining 11 bachelorettes to Montana for a two-on-one date, a group date and a romantic single date at Glacier National Park. Country super star Sarah Darling will take center stage and serenade Sean and his date on the downtown streets of Whitefish. As these spoilers indicate, Lowe’s road to everlasting love may get even bumpier.
When “The Bachelor” expands to two nights next week, there will be plenty of drama, tears, backstabbing and jealousy. Monday night’s episode starts out with a romantic one-on-one date where Sean attempts to escalate his relationship with Lindsay to new heights when the couple takes an astounding helicopter ride over the gorgeous mountains of Montana’s Glacier National Park. After taking in the spectacular scenery, they settle in for a romantic dinner and the woman who arrived on the show in a wedding dress opens up to Sean about the difficulties growing up an Army brat. As the romance heats up, Sean surprises her with a special concert by Country star Sarah Darling on the streets of downtown Whitefish – but will Lindsay get a rose?
For the group date, eight women compete in a Montana relay race that includes milking cows and chugging the milk. The eight bachelorettes split into two teams. The winning team wins more time with Sean, while the losing team heads back to the hotel. One team finally squeaks by to win. But Sean makes a surprising decision when it comes to the losing team that is bound to upset the winners. And to make things more interesting, Tierra, upset that she will be on the two-on-one date, shows up at the after party. Will her secret rendezvous hurt or help her get the rose the next night?
Tierra and Jackie face-off on the two-on-one date. Sean takes both women on a horseback ride through the Montana outback, only to have the normally charming Jackie take the Bachelor aside and stab Tierra in the back. Will he listen to her? Tierra, in an attempt to save herself, reveals a shocking detail about her personal life. Meanwhile, Sean is left to sort out his feelings and make a very difficult choice, which leaves one bachelorette in tears.
The final cocktail party is a boiling cauldron of outrage. It’s one woman against the rest of the bachelorettes. Frustrated by all the drama, Sean Lowe tries to get to the bottom of the situation, but just feels more confused than ever. He confides in Chris Harrison that he’s beginning to doubt he will ever find his soul mate among these women. At the rose ceremony, everyone is stunned by whom Sean chooses to send home. Nine women will join him as they set off for their next destination, the Colorado Rockies.
