AN INCREDIBLE JOURNEY TO VIETNAM IS THE SETTING FOR PASSION BETWEEN JUAN PABLO AND CLARE, LEADING TO MISGIVINGS AND ENORMOUS JEALOUSY FROM THE OTHER WOMEN, ON ABC’S “THE BACHELOR”
“Episode 1805” – Breathtaking Vietnam becomes the romantic backdrop for Juan Pablo and the 11 remaining bachelorettes to continue their search for love. Renee is overjoyed when she is picked for a one-on-one date, but will she get the opportunity to tell the Latin heartthrob how she really feels? Nine women board Vietnamese bamboo circle boats for the adventure of a lifetime, but jealousy and resentment rear their ugly head when Juan Pablo appears to spend more time with one of the women than the rest. However, when he singles out Clare for some extended alone time, he is asking for trouble. Nikki is traumatized when she discovers that she and the Bachelor must rappel down 100 feet into a dark cave named Hell. There are plenty of tears from the women – and even the Bachelor – during a powerful and emotional rose ceremony, on “The Bachelor,” MONDAY, FEBRUARY 3 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
Renee and Juan Pablo act like two giddy teenagers as they explore the picturesque city of Hoi An, stopping to buy gifts and soaking up the culture hand-in-hand. Renee gets a special surprise as the Bachelor takes her to a shop where she is fitted for a tailor-made dress to wear to their romantic dinner together. This woman with a heart of gold is beginning to fall for Juan Pablo, but will she have the courage to tell him?
Nine bachelorettes will explore the Vietnamese countryside with Juan Pablo. The women pair up, but one woman is left alone and ends up accompanying the dashing single dad. She steals a romantic kiss and sets off a firestorm among the other ladies who perceive that she is getting extra attention. Andi pulls Juan Pablo aside to voice her concern that she hasn’t had an individual date yet, but what will he say? Later at the beachside cocktail party, the Bachelor eyes Clare for some one-on-one time alone in his private pool. But Clare is determined to stretch her alone time with Juan Pablo and makes a daring offer to him. Will it backfire?
Nikki meets Juan Pablo at the Vietnamese landmark Marble Mountain for a day of adventure, but she is terrified when she finds out that she needs to face her fears and rappel 100 feet straight down into a dark cave named Hell. However, at the bottom is a pleasant surprise — a candlelit dinner for two is waiting. Is it possible for her to release her anxiety so that she doesn’t ruin her date and her chance for a rose?
At one of the most dramatic cocktail parties of the season, the Bachelor tries to reassure some of the women with romantic gestures, but when he faces off with Clare, she is reduced to tears. Juan Pablo is left doubting some of the choices he is making, which leads to a compelling and moving rose ceremony. Eight women remain at the end of the evening to accompany Juan Pablo on a thrilling journey to New Zealand.
