By this point on The Bachelor, the ladies have had more time to spend with Bachelor Chris Soules, and connections are forming. That’s great -- except for the part where there are 18 women all thinking the same thing. It’s not fun to watch the person you’re dating wander off with someone else, especially when they come back giddy from a makeout session. But maybe guest host Jimmy Kimmel will help lighten the tension and foster the love!
Romance in Bulk: For his first move as Cupid, Jimmy sends Chris and Kaitlyn on a luxurious date to…Costco? The two lovebirds were maybe hoping for helicopter rides, but hey, they get free samples at least:

The late-night host gives them a shopping list and tells them to get ready to cook him dinner that night. Also, to buy enough ketchup to fill a hot tub. From Week 3 of the 2015 season of The Bachelor.
The Hoedown: What better way to find a mate than to make these women perform a bunch of farm tasks, like milk goats and then immediately guzzle the milk, or chase after greased pigs? Jimmy can think of nothing better:
Hoedown Throwdown|Jimmy Kimmel sets up a farm-themed obstacle course for the bachelorettes.|Jimmy Kimmel sets up a farm-themed obstacle course for the bachelorettes, including shucking corn, shoveling manure, milking a goat, and guzzling the milk immediately thereafter. Who will win Chris's heart, or at least finish Jimmy's bizarre course? Watch and see in this scene from Week 3 of the 2015 season of The Bachelor.
The Kiss Counter: Mackenzie was pretty proud of the fact that she was the first to kiss Chris, on their 1-on-1 date. (Except that Britt actually kissed him on the season premiere, but whatever.) And now she’s hearing how much kissing he’s doing, and doesn’t like it. So she asks him why he’s kissing so many women:

She felt special after they kssed on his first date, but now she's not sure it means anything. See the awkward conversation in this scene from Week 3 of the 2015 season of The Bachelor.
Wedding Crashers: During Whitney and Chris’s 1-on-1 date, she convinces him to bail on the plan and crash a nearby wedding. (We think Whitney was just afraid of what Jimmy might have planned for their date.) What’s the worst that could happen? Chris is pretty sure it’s jail:
Chris and Whitney: Wedding Crashers|Chris just hopes jail isn't in their future.|On a whim, Chris Soules and Whitney decide to blow off the date that Jimmy Kimmel had planned for them and crash a wedding taking place nearby. Whitney hopes they can pull it off without blowing their cover or someone recognizing Chris. Chris just wants to stay out of jail. From Week 3 of the 2015 season of The Bachelor.
The Worst Rose Ceremony Pep Talk in the History of Rose Ceremony Pep Talks: It’s the worst part for Chris. Jimmy helps him see that it’s horrible because he’s been in their shoes and he knows how crushing rejection can be. Also, he tells him to be someone who’s better at public speaking. Nice work, Kimmel:
The Worst Rose Ceremony Pep Talk Ever|Jimmy Kimmel does his best to make it worse for Chris.|As Chris Soules heads to the Rose Ceremony and all the tough decisions that entails, Jimmy Kimmel explains to Chris why it's so hard, and tells him he's glad he's not in his shoes.
