This week, the guys and gal had a group dodgeball date. Right after the fun filled date, Desiree received a phone call from Chris Harrison, who alerts her that Brian has a girlfriend back home that he declined to mention. She immediately confronts Brian, along with his girlfriend, Stephanie. Hartsock tell him, “it takes some one with no character to come on a show for love knowing he has a girlfriend back home,” and sends him home at once.


After the dishonest and unfortunate outcome of one lying suitor, the Bachelorette goes on a one-on-one date with Kasey. The pair do “Bandaloop” dancing on the side of a skyscraper on Sunset Boulevard, using a special trapeze rigging to hold them up. Afterwards, their romantic dinner gets interrupted with a windstorm, but Kasey still makes it out with a rose.

The following day, Hartsock takes five gents on a group date, wherein the coordinator from The Lone Ranger teaches the men roping tricks and other cowboy skills. Juan Pablo wins the stunt competition, and gets to watch the movie in a private room with Hartsock, during which the pair share a sweet kiss.

But it’s James who receives the group date rose after he reveals to Hartsock he has a sick father whom he’s worried about back home. The next day, Harrison announces that the usual cocktail party has been canceled, and that there will be a pool party instead.

Ben takes Hartsock on a drive before the pool party, getting under the skin of the other contestants, particularly Mikey T., who confronts Ben for his sneaky ways. Ben defends his actions by telling the camera, “It’s called ‘The Bachelorette” for a reason. It’s not called ‘Let’s Make Friends.’”

Finally, it’s time for the rose ceremony.

Desiree eliminates Brandon, despite him professing that he was falling in love with her at the pool party. The Bachelorette insists that they had no chemistry. Dan also gets sent packing
