Last week on The Bachelorette, Emily Maynard sent overly-sensitive Nate home on the two-on-one date. He was followed by Michael and Charlie in the Rose Ceremony. Tonight, Emily and the remaining 10 bachelors head to London, England, where one of the men will makes a very insensitive remark regarding Emily’s daughter. Keep reading to find out who ends up in the doghouse and who goes home…
This week, The Bachelorette kicks off with Emily and Ricki sightseeing in London. Chris Harrison greets the bachelors in Trafalgar Square and tells them there will be a group date and two one-on-one dates. Sean nets the first one-on-one date, which leads to the other guys indulging in the usual griping about being jealous.
On their date, Emily and Sean see Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, where they emulate William and Kate’s first kiss. In the park, Emily tells Sean that guys who look like him are usually boring! His face is priceless. She quickly assures him he’s not boring and laughs. As spectators gather, Sean gets up and makes a speech about what love is – and somehow it’s not cheesy at all – props!
Back at the suite, the Jef is stunned when Kalan refers to Ricki as ‘baggage’. Jef wonders (in-camera) why Kalan is even there. The group date card arrives – it’s for Chris, Arie, Ryan, Doug, Alejandro, Travis, John, and Kalan. That means Jef will get the other one-on-one date.
Sean and Emily, whose raspy voice has gone from sexy to near laryngitis, are dining at the Tower of London. Sean is her prisoner of love! Muhaha! He doesn’t seem to mind. Emily explains that this is where Henry VIII had his wives and beheaded two of them. Sean’s smile falters, but only a little. Over dinner, Emily talks about wanting more kids and Sean’s on board. Emily sees him as marriage material – have to agree! He obviously gets a rose.
The guys on the group date are deflated to hear that they will be auditioning/acting out scenes from Romeo & Juliet. Emily thinks it will be funny. It is. Most of them mock themselves as they do their auditions, but Kalan takes it very seriously – no fun. Travis proves to be the funniest and catches Emily’s eye. Kalan continues to take it too seriously and even shoos Emily away so they can continue to rehearse. We get treated to a flash of anger from Emily who says he needs to chill out – he’s not on Broadway – and calls him ‘too intense’.
They costume up and put on the play. Doug is hilarious as a female nurse. Arie also plays a female nurse and is ridiculously nervous, but cracks everyone up. Emily is impressed with him putting himself so far out of his comfort zone. Ryan snags the part that includes a kiss. Arie whispers, ‘Thouest suck.” When Ryan steals a second, sexy kiss, he silences his critics.
Later, Arie and Emily laugh over his acting and kiss a lot. Ryan takes Emily behind some curtains and presents her with a turquoise necklace. She candidly tells him it’s a surprise for so many reasons. Ryan goes down one peg! On the terrace, overly-determined Chris and Arie talk about how disgusted they are by Kalan’s remark about Ricki. Chris tells Doug, who is genuinely pissed off to hear it, as he has a son. Chris then sits back while Doug calls Kalan out about it. Kalan won’t apologize. Doug tells Emily. She wants to rip Kalan’s limbs off and beat him with them. She’s ready to go West Virginia backwoods hoodrat on his ass!
Emily confronts Kalan, who blabs about Ricki being a huge responsibility. Emily informs him that Ricki is a blessing, reminds him he was raised by a single mother, and tells him to get the ‘eff’ out. Kalan doesn’t leave immediately, so Emily walks away. In the car, Kalan acknowledges that he’s probably not the man to make Emily’s life easier. Gah! Emily returns to tell the others that they should have had her back and told her about Kalan’s remark sooner. She refuses to give out a rose.
Jef and Emily begin their date with the previous night’s events weighing on their minds. They meet an etiquette teacher for afternoon tea. Yikes! Emily and Jef make a mess of tea and sandwiches, meaning Jean the etiquette teacher yaps non-stop and causes Jef to become increasingly frustrated – he just wants to talk with Emily! When Jean finally leaves them alone, they decide to roll on out. Soon they’re ordering pints and fish n’ chips in the pub, and Jef confides that he was the one who was sitting there when Kalan made his remark. They agree if Ricki’s baggage, she’s vintage Louis Vuitton. Emily is more cheery, but still wants to know Jef better.
Over dinner they get much more in depth with their conversation about themselves. Jef finally opens up and kind of gets the verbal runs. Emily nods a lot as he goes on. He’s sweet, though. She gives him a rose and they go kiss by the water.
Cocktail Party and Rose Ceremony
Emily tells the guys she felt really disrespected this week and they basically have to answer for not having her back sooner – especially Arie, who she had felt particularly close to before. He uses the excuse that he didn’t want to spend their precious time talking about another guy – pfft. Wanting to lighten the mood, Ryan reenacts the balcony scene from Romeo & Juliet – including the kissing. Emily kind of kicks herself for falling for him a bit, given that she’s aware that he fancies himself to be very smooth. After, Sean also spends quality time with Em, who says she gets butterflies in her heart around him! He’s the whole package, for sure.
Sean and Jef have roses and are safe going into the Rose Ceremony. Emily offers roses to Doug, Ryan, Chris, John, Travis, and Arie. Alejandro has come to the end of the road.
What did you think of tonight’s episode? Did the right person go home? Next week, Emily and the remaining 8 bachelors will go to Breivik, Croatia where one bachelor will be on the hot seat for being ‘professionally cocky’. Could it be Ryan?
