'The Bachelor' Recap: Juan Pablo Has One-On-Ones With Clare Crawley & Kat Hurd, Sends Victoria Home Early
The Bachelor on Monday opened with Juan Pablo Galavis’ first one-on-one date of the season with Clare Crawley, followed up by a second one with Kat Hurd, and a dog-themed group date that ends with one contestant packing up early.
Juan Pablo & Clare’s Snow Date
After blindfolding Clare, Juan Pablo drives his potential match out to a faux winter wonderland. In a hot tub on the elaborate wintery set, the half-naked pair have a heart to heart. Clare reveals to Juan Pablo that her dad tragically passed away. The bachelor offers Clare some comforting words before he starts making out with her. Once out of the hot tub, the still shirtless Juan Pablo slow dances with Clare on the fake snow to live music by Josh Krajcik. At the end of the night, Juan Pablo offers Clare a rose, which she gladly accepts.
Kat’s Electric Run One-On-One
The second one-on-one date went to professional dancer Kat. Juan Pablo, who admittedly loves to give a good surprise, flew Kat on a private plane up to Utah. She had no idea what she was in for, even after Juan Pablo offered her some brightly colored work out duds. Their first date – slightly less romantic than Kat’s – was at Salt Lake City’s Electric Run. Juan Pablo was impressed with Kat’s game attitude and dance moves throughout the athletic date and offered her a rose from the Electric Run stage in front of thousands of fellow participants.
Doggy Photo Shoot Group Date
For the group date this week, Juan Pablo invited all but three of the remaining women to a photo studio. There, they would be taking “sexy” pictures with dogs in need of adoption for a fundraising calendar. Needless to say, some of the girls had some trouble wrapping their heads around wearing nothing but a sign – or a fire hydrant costume – and posing with a K9 pal and Juan Pablo. Kelly Travis, who was in full body paint for her photo shoot, earned the group date rose from Juan Pablo.
After Party Theatrics
Hanging out after the photo shoot, Victoria Lima far outdrank the rest of the competition and refused to let any of the women help her get her act together. According to her, she wasn’t drunk. She just wanted alone time with Juan Pablo where she could “straddle” him, which she was miming while alone in the hot tub. After stumbling past his alone time with nurse Nikki Ferrell, Victoria curled up on the floor of a bathroom stall and proceeded to ball and scream that she wanted to go home. The next morning, Juan Pablo paid her a visit and granted her her wish.
At the beginning of the Rose Ceremony, Juan Pablo announced that he’d already sent Victoria packing, since her behavior showed him she likely wasn’t ready to be a mom to his 4-year-old daughter. Following Victoria out the door was Amy Long and Chantel Forrest. Cassandra Ferguson, Nikki, Andi Dorfman, Elise Mosca, Sharleen Joynt, Renee Oteri, Danielle Ronco, Lucy Aragon, Ali Oetjen, Chelsie Webster, Lauren Higginson and Christie Hansen all received roses and will be around to fight for Juan Pablo another week.
When The Bachelor returns to ABC next Monday at 8/7c, Juan Pablo will have one-on-one dates with Cassandra and Chelsie.
