ABC press release:
ONE BACHELORETTE IS DAZZLED WITH A DATE WORTHY OF CINDERELLA, OTHER WOMEN HARBOR MAJOR SECRETS THAT ARE EXPOSED AND CHRIS GETS SERIOUS ABOUT HIS INTENTIONS WITH THE REMAINING 15 WOMEN, ON “THE BACHELOR”
“Episode 1904” – Chris’ three sisters will pick the lucky bachelorette to go on a special one-on-one date with their brother. A beautiful beach day at Lake Piru in the mountains of Southern California turns up the heat at a group date, as one woman jumps in without her bikini top and – not to be outdone – another takes off her bikini bottom. The day at the lake turns into camping out and spending the night there. One aggressive woman shares some surprising news with Chris, but will it make a difference in how he views her as a potential soul mate? Chris gets “down and dirty” with six bachelorettes as they travel to San Francisco to participate in a grueling mud run – in wedding dresses. The cocktail party leads to more revelations and confrontations, as one woman questions Chris’ motives for being here and he, in return, delivers a blunt message to the rest of the bachelorettes, on “The Bachelor,” MONDAY, JANUARY 26 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
Eight excited women are treated to a wonderful day at the beach at Lake Piru, but no one thinks about cooling off. Instead a red-hot competition breaks out between two women who shed parts of their bikinis to catch Chris’ eye. Chris Harrison springs a surprise on the bachelorettes when he tells them they will set up camp and stay at the lake for the night. Singing campfire songs and eating s’mores are followed by one high-spirited lady getting the group rose date. However, Chris won’t get much sleep. One assertive bachelorette sneaks into his tent in the middle of the night, shares a shocking revelation with him, and then a hot make-out session ensues.
Back at the house, seven women are surprised by Chris’ three sisters. They are all intent on finding their brother a wife and interrogate the bachelorettes to find the one special lady they will pick to go on an extraordinarily romantic date with him. They pick a shy woman, who has been overshadowed by those with big personalities, but little do they know she has a secret she has kept from Chris. The next morning, three stylists turn this fortunate bachelorette into a real-life Cinderella. At night, she is whisked away to a magical ball just for her and her Prince Farming. Chris overwhelms his princess with a private concert by the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and a special sneak peek at Disney’s new movie “Cinderella.” They waltz until midnight, but will this woman leave with a rose?
It’s off to San Francisco for Chris and six bachelorettes for the last group date. Dressed in wedding gowns, the women have to complete a difficult mud run with the losers going home and the winner spending a romantic night with Chris. Just so happens the winner is a frontrunner in the race for the Bachelor’s heart, and she leaves the other five women in the dust. An amorous mood is set at dinner overlooking the glittering city by the bay, and Chris has a chance to find out about another side of this stunning beauty. Will she capture his heart or leave without a rose?
Anxiety fills the cocktail party, as one of the women wants to make sure that Chris really understood the eye-opening message she delivered at the campsite and another questions him about the type of women who he considers rose-worthy. But one jealous lady has had her fill, and in a dramatic confrontation, accuses the Bachelor of not being there “for the right reasons.” However, Chris takes matters into his own hands and stuns the rest of the remaining bachelorettes with a serious announcement.
At the end of the evening, 11 women remain in the chase to capture Chris’ heart.
