The fifth episode of “The Bachelor” airs tonight and we have spoilers, giving you all the details from the one-on-ones to the controversial NASCAR group date and the eliminations.
On this episode of “The Bachelor,” Brad and the girls leave L.A. for a trip to Las Vegas, where they stay at the luxe Aria hotel.
Brad takes Shawntell Newton shopping at Aria’s fashion mall for the first one-one-one date. After some retail bonding, the two fly on a helicopter tour of the city and follow their adventures with a rooftop dinner date and fireworks show. The date goes well as Shawntell gets a rose.
Back at the hotel, the girls bond. Lisa Morrisey, Marissa May and both Ashleys decide to get rose tattoos to commemorate the experience.
The next date is the very hyped NASCAR group date. Brad takes eight girls, including Emily, to the racetrack for time trials. Lisa gets the best time, but all the attention is focused on Emily given her past. Emily gets a rose for putting on such a brave face while at the track, despite being obviously emotional about her NASCAR driver fiance’s death. Brad worries about Emily throughout the date and pulls her to the side to make sure she’s OK.
After the group date, things get a little different with a two-on-one date rather than the usual one-on-one. On this date, Brad takes Ashleys Hebert and Spivey on a partial mini-group date. The Ashleys rehearse with Cirque du Soleil for “Viva Elvis” and compete against each other to join Brad in the show. Brad takes the two to dinner at an Aria restaurant and decides to eliminate Ashley S, after which he and Ashley H. perform in the show.
Since Ashley S. has already been sent home, only two girls are cut at the rose ceremony. Marissa and Lisa get eliminated, leaving eight remaining contestants to compete for Brad’s love.
“The Bachelor” airs tonight at 8/7c on ABC.
