Episode 6 of The Bachelor kicked off in a dramatic fashion, with everyone still reeling from the scandalous revelations of last week.
Gavin is still trying to decide what to do with the two girls at the centre of the drama – Morgan and Carianne – so invites both on a date, to find out once and for all where the truth lies.
And this is no normal date! Only one girl will be given a rose, keeping her in the competition, while the other will be sent home.
The girls set off to make pizza to eat with Gavin later – and see each other for the first time since Morgan accused Carianne of kissing a member of the film crew.
Can anybody say awkward? The poor chef teaching the girls how to knead dough must have wondered what on earth was going on, as the pair ignored one another, only to shoot a few evil glances across the table.
When they finally meet with Gavin, things get even more tense, as both sticks to her story like chewing-gum on a shoe. “I’m in a world of pain here” groans Gav, as it becomes clear he must now make a decision.
Except he doesn’t. Yep, Gavin bottles it – and decides to keep both girls in the competition, until he can “figure things out better.” – Oh and not one of the three even touched a slice of pizza – what a waste!
The rest of the girls have been feeling left out – as Gav’s attention has been well and truly taken up with Carianne-gate – and discontent begins to spread throughout the group when the news reaches them that Carianne has not been sent home.
So much so, that seeing both girls returning to the house is the final straw for Nikki! “You know what? I’m leaving” she says, after a heated row with Carianne. “He isn’t the man I thought he was.”
Who would have thought the only casualty of this whole thing would be Nikkie? She’ll definitely be missed.
The next ‘Gav Mail’ does nothing to relieve tensions, as it is revealed that Layla will be going on another solo date with Gavin – despite the fact many of the other girls are yet to have some alone time with the star.
Still, the date goes amazingly well, and it seems Layla is becoming a real front-runner in this competition! The pair take a romantic boat ride along the canals of Venice, and have a bit of a kiss. Actually – that’s an understatement, there is a LOT of kissing! Smitten much Gav?
Next, its finally the turn for the rest of the girls to go on a date! So what will they be doing? A romantic dinner perhaps? A stroll under the stars? No – boot camp, with a former army officer. As you can imagine, there weren’t too many impressed faces!
Still, it did give them a chance to get hot and sweaty with the bachelor – April even lay on Gav’s back as he performed some pretty impressive press-ups! However it was Georgie who collected the rose guaranteeing her immunity – although not before she’d made sure that Gav knew how neglected they’d all been feeling!
And so finally, it was time for the all-important rose ceremony, and tensions were higher than ever. Morgan was saved, as was Carianne…. While Welsh Angharad was sent home, causing a lot of tears amongst the girls.
Oh Gav, you are causing some problems amongst those females!
We can’t wait for next week!
