A physical Bachelor boot camp proves too much for one bachelorette, who
receives top notch medical attention from Andy. Then a relaxing mud spa
turns out to be the backdrop for a wild group date where the women
clash to get some time alone with the Bachelor. In another over-the-top
confrontation racing high performance Saleen supercharged cars, the
ladies are all revved up to land a one-on-one date with Andy, and a
final date on an aircraft carrier will be the end of the road for one
woman, on "The Bachelor: Officer and a Gentleman," MONDAY, APRIL 16
(9:30-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
The bachelorettes get a rude wake-up call from a drill sergeant, as they participate in a rough and tumble Bachelor boot camp, with one tough woman winning a rose. Unfortunately Bevin is injured, but Andy shows off his medical expertise and bedside manner, rushing to her rescue. He then unwinds with five beautiful ladies at a mud spa, which quickly turns into a down-and-dirty tussle to capture some alone time with the Bachelor. In the end, one lucky woman gets a private massage from the handsome doctor.
Next, four fabulous ladies accompany the Bachelor to a racetrack to see who revs his engine and who stalls out. Andy chooses one bachelorette to take on a romantic sunset drive to the beach.
On the dramatic final date, Andy gives two women an inside look at his life as a naval officer when they visit an aircraft carrier in San Diego. But there’s a catch: At the end of it, there’s only one rose to hand out. While one woman goes home in tears, Andy sweeps the other woman off her feet and into a waiting helicopter. At the rose ceremony, Andy must send three ladies home in heartbreak, as he narrows the field from 12 bachelorettes to nine.
