After a week’s break (due to the football – ugh) The Bachelor returned to our screens on Friday night, and what a show it was!
The episode kicked off with another ‘2 girls 1 rose ’ date – which are always guaranteed to be great viewing! This time it was the turn of love-sick Carrie and feisty Keshia, who set off on a camping expedition with Gavin – knowing that only one of them would be returning to the house.
Gav had the girls putting up tents and weeing in holes… hmm romantic! He did manage to squeeze in a chat under the stars with both though. Keshia calmed down and actually spoke to him like a normal person while Carrie managed to contain the crazy … but Gav still sent her home. Gutted doesn’t even cover it.
This meant that Keshia and Gav got to spend the night under the stars together… ooo alone, in a tent, all night? What did they get up to? They spooned, apparently. Carianne seemed simultaneously overjoyed and horrified at this news. Overjoyed because ‘she was there first’ and horrified because ‘who would just spoon!?’ As for Keshia, she came over all giggly schoolgirl and refused to reveal any details!
A group date followed, which involved the girls stripping down to their underwear… again. Yes it wouldn’t be an episode of The Bachelor without some nudity! Under the guise of a ‘life-drawing class’ Gav had all the girls pose for each other, and channel their inner-artist. Ola’s winning sketch won her the chance to spend some one-on-one time with Gavin… drawing him naked! ‘I’m so jealous… he’s naked isn’t he? He’s so naked!’ squealed Nikki.
Next, it was Layla’s turn for a single date. But trouble was brewing. As she was preparing to meet Mr. Henson for their trip to St. Tropez, Carianne crossed the line no lady should ever cross: “You’re not wearing that are you?” she smirked. Meow! Cue big argument, which involved Layla getting changed multiple times. Seems the joke’s on Carianne anyway, as Gav seems smitten, and admitted he’s really falling for the pint-sized lass… just don’t tell the other girls!
Finally it was time for the fourth rose ceremony… and tension was even higher than normal, as Gavin revealed that the group will be jetting off to Italy next week! Who would be going home? Well, despite winning some private time with Gav in the life-drawing class, it was Ola who was sent packing. Sad times… but at least she got to see Gavin half-naked before leaving! Memories last forever Ola…
Just nine girls remain – who will win the heart of the bachelor?! We can’t wait until next week!
