‘The Bachelorette’ Recap: JoJo Fletcher Takes Guys To Pennsylvania, Sends Four Home
JoJo Fletcher took the men to Pennsylvania, where she had one-on-one date, an explosive two-on-one-date, and a third date with 11 men, which got physical. By the end of the episode, four guys were sent home. Get the full recap below.
Tuesday’s special episode began with Chad telling the guys that as long as they don’t “push” him, he’ll be cool with them. When “The Bachelorette” left off on Monday, Chad had been warned by Chris Harrison that the other men were afraid he had ’roid rage. Before the show cut off, this season’s villain could be heard saying he was going to rip off the limbs of the other guys. But by the time Chad rejoined the other men in the new episode, he said wanted to get along with them.
Instead of a cocktail get-together, JoJo had a pool party, where the guys played around. But at one point, Evan’s nose began bleeding profusely. While JoJo jokingly asked Chad if he did it, Evan actually injured himself diving into the pool. JoJo then spent some alone time with Jordan making out. She also spoke to Derek, who told her the rest of the men were afraid around Chad and wanted her to send him home. Of course, Chad overheard it and later confronted Derek.
It was then time for the rose ceremony. Shockingly, Chad wasn’t eliminated. Instead, JoJo sent home Christian, a telecom consultant from L.A., electrical engineer Nick B. from Fort Lauderdale, and Ali, a Santa Monica bartender.
After that, JoJo took the guys to the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in Pittsburgh, and went on one-on-one date with Luke. The two took a dog sled, pulled by eight Huskies, into the woods, where they got amorous in a hot tub. That was followed by a romantic dinner, where he talked about his experiences and the lessons he learned from being a platoon leader in Afghanistan. But that wasn’t the end of their date. They went a Dan + Shay concert, where JoJo and Luke kissed and danced before the entire audience. Not surprisingly. Luke got a date rose.
Next, JoJo took 11 dudes on a date to Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. On the not-so-intimate date were Chase, Daniel, Derek, Evan, Grant, James F., James Taylor, Jordan, Robby, Vinny and Wells. With the help of Pittsburgh Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger, Brett Keisel, and Hines Ward, the guys played an intense 5-on-5, with Jordan as the quarterback for both teams. But even before the game, things got physical during practice, and James Taylor split open his head. The winners got to hang out with JoJo, while the losers were sent home.
And for her final date of the show, JoJo went on a two-on-one hike with Alex and Chad. But before the date, Chad threatened Jordan, in front of all the others guys, saying he’d find him after the show and hurt him. While alone with Alex, he told her how Chad has repeatedly threatened to beat up the other guys. Incredibly, Chad told JoJo he’s not an “aggressive” guy. Ultimately, JoJo gave Alex the rose. And while Chad should have gone home from there, he dramatically returned to the hotel, where the other guys were celebrating his departure.
