Let the Dates Begin: Eric is pumped when he finds out that he scores the first romantic outing of the season. 18 disappointed bachelors are left behind wallowing in envy. Andi pulls over to a quiet spot along the coast for what seems to be a laid back day at the beach flying kites and building sand castles. Just then a helicopter swoops in and takes them from a Southern California sandy beach to the snow covered peaks of the San Bernardino Mountains and Big Bear.
Let it Snow: Still dressed in their beachwear, Andi and Eric are met by professional snowboarder Louie Vito. After a brief lesson on maneuvering down the slope, they brave it on their own, gliding down the mountainside hand in hand. Later over a fireside dinner, Eric charms Andi with breathtaking stories of his spectacular adventures. Andi is intrigued and happy to hear that he would set aside his globetrotting trips to settle down and start a family. Eric scores a rose at the end of the date.
The Hollywood Strip: The next day, 14 men join Andi at a hip Hollywood nightclub, but they are in for a big surprise when they are met by members of a popular male exotic revue, “Hollywood Men,” who greet them with a racy performance that leaves everyone stunned. Andi reveals that this date is actually a special event for the charity “Bachelor Gives Back.” The way they will raise funds will be to strip in front of a live audience.
It’s All for Charity: Andi divides the guys into fantasy-themed groups for their routines, resulting in hilarious auditions, but two unlucky men have to perform solo. One nervous bachelor really feels the pressure, fights through his anxiety to show Andi how committed he is. At the after party, Josh attempts to convince Andi he is more than a pretty face. It looks like he succeeds.
Splash Downed: The guys were all nervous about stripping on stage. Craig opted to settle his nerves by drinking up a storm. He gets a little out of control at the after-party. He has some one-on-one time with the Bachelorette. Andi knows that the guy is “annihilated.” Craig jumps into the pool while still in his clothes. The show’s producers had to step in to take the guy home. Later, has some nice quiet time with Marcus. At the end of the night, he gets the group date rose.
Hearts are Racing: Andi treats Chris to a glamorous day of horse racing at Santa Anita Park, as the couple gets decked out in outfits reminiscent of the 1940’s. They settle into their VIP seats with mint juleps and binoculars ready to see if their bets pay off. That night, they enjoy a special evening, slow dancing to the songs of “This Wild Life” during a private concert. Does this mean their relationship is on a fast track? Perhaps it is since Chris gets a rose at the end of the date and a first kiss.
The Cocktail Party: Nick V. got the first impression rose Week 1, but he wanted to make sure Andi didn’t forget about him in Week 2. So he gets creative. He gives her a date card to score some one-on-one time. The rambunctious bachelor who went off the rails at the group date after party tries to apologize for his bad behavior. Craig asks Andi to forgive him by performing a sweet tune on the guitar. Andi is all smiles when the singing is done. But was this apology enough?
