Rock Superstar Group Chicago's Private Performance Sends Sparks Flying
Between Jake and One Lucky Lady, and the Claws Come Out at an
Exciting InStyle Magazine Photo Shoot
"Episode 1402" - The 15 remaining bachelorettes move into their luxurious villa in Malibu, and the fairy tale begins. One lucky woman will get a fabulous one-on-one date: Jake will personally pilot the bachelorette to a romantic desert getaway in Palm Springs, where they will be serenaded by rock superstar group Chicago. One group date will give six women a chance to strut their stuff in a ***y photo shoot for InStyle Magazine, and the five women on the other group date are treated to a VIP visit to Six Flags Magic Mountain. However, some of the women will not have a date at all before the next rose ceremony, encouraging them to aggressively steal any time they can with the handsome pilot. But nothing can prepare Jake for the bombshell that will be dropped. For the first time in "Bachelor" history, having rose isn't enough, on "The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love," MONDAY, JANUARY 11 (8:00-10:02 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
The first group date of the season is a runway thriller, with Jake taking six women to a glamorous photo shoot for InStyle magazine. The bachelorettes are excited to discover that they will be featured in the February issue (on sale January 15), but the competition for Jake's attention, as well as time in front of the camera, is intense. Gia and Rozlyn are models and Christina is intimidated by their immense confidence posing for the camera with Jake. At an after shoot wrap party at the Santa Monica Hotel Shangri-La pool, Ashleigh isn't taking any chances that she'll be forgotten and busts in on Jake and Gia dressed only in a bikini.
Jake hijacks one lucky woman, draped in diamonds, on the back of his motorcycle to the airport. He reveals that he personally will pilot a private plane to take her to Palm Springs, and they fly off into the sunset for a romantic dream date. Jake has an even bigger surprise in store for the bachelorette, escorting her to a polo field in Palm Springs for a private concert by the classic rock superstar band Chicago. Things get hot as the couple enjoys a slow, ***y dance to "You're the Inspiration."
The next day, five women are whisked off the Six Flags Magic Mountain, where Jake makes sure they're treated like VIPs and the amusement park is closed down just for them. As the women jockey for face time with the handsome Bachelor, Elizabeth pulls Jake away for some private time and a surprising revelation: she says she won't kiss him unless he puts a ring on her finger. But the games get more serious as Vienna shares the story of her heartbreaking marriage at 17. Not to be outdone, Ashley steals Jake away, hoping to get a kiss. As the day winds down, Jake needs to give a rose to the woman he wants to share the rest of the evening with at a private fireworks display.
At the emotional and dramatic cocktail party, the three women who didn't get dates vie for Jake's attention. One even breaks down in tears as she explains how much she cares for him. But never before has such a bolt from the blue been leveled at a Bachelor. One of the 15 bachelorettes has crossed a line that should never have been crossed - with devastating results. Chris Harrison pulls Jake aside to share the shocking news, and for the first time in "Bachelor" history, having a rose isn't enough! Twelve women will remain in the race for Jake's heart.
