Next Episode of The Bachelor is
Millions of single women had mixed emotions when Chris Soules, the stylish farmer from Iowa, was sent home by Andi Dorfman on The Bachelorette. One of the final three men, Chris was dismissed after he had emotionally confessed his love to Andi, but that meant the handsome bachelor was back on the market. Now, he is ready to put his heartache behind him to search for the one missing piece in his life - true love - when he stars in the 19th edition of ABC's hit romance reality series, The Bachelor.
The 33-year-old Midwestern bachelor and self-proclaimed romantic has been engaged once before. Heartbroken, Chris ended that seven-year relationship just months before he expected to walk down the aisle. Although his relationship with his fiancée was good, he didn't want to settle for "good." He wanted "great." While the humble but enormously successful farmer from tiny Arlington, Iowa (pop. 427) has found it difficult to date, that hasn't stopped him from having faith that one day he will find the perfect woman for him. His experience on The Bachelorette made him realize that love really is out there, and he is confident that he will find it this time on The Bachelor. (source: abc.go.com)
They're all in the hunt for U.S. Naval Lieutenant Andy Baldwin, M.D., when the tenth edition of ABC's popular romance reality series, The Bachelor: Officer and a Gentleman, premieres.
The dating begins with an evening on L.A.'s Sunset Boulevard, but one bachelorette feels lost in the crowd. Andy then challenges seven contestants to a mini-triathlon in Santa Monica, but two prove to be divas, not athletes. And he spends a romantic evening aboard the yacht with "first-impression rose" winner Stephanie T. before casting off three hopefuls, leaving 12 remaining.
The 12 remaining bachelorettes endure a boot camp, and a drill sergeant---not Andy---gives the toughest lady a rose. But Andy does show off his bedside manner to a woman who is injured. Then he takes five contestants to a mud spa, where he gives one a massage, and accompanies four others to an auto race. Andy also goes on a two-on-one date aboard an aircraft carrier berthed in San Diego, but brings only one rose with him. After the concluding rose ceremony, nine bachelorettes remain.
Andy surprises the nine remaining bachelorettes with a luxurious trip to Lake Tahoe. Four ladies all get lucky on a casino group date and, at the end of the night, one very fortunate woman is the recipient of a hot, romantic get-together with Andy that would melt the snow on the surrounding mountaintops. Next, it's off to the slopes for a fiercely competitive group date. And in the final one-on-one date of the trip, a passionate fireside tryst ends up taking a serious turn when Andy presses the woman for her true feelings and then must make an immediate decision about whether to send her home.
Now the pressure is really on, as Andy struggles to decide which four women he will escort home to meet their family and friends. But first, one lucky bachelorette experiences a fairytale date with the handsome Bachelor, complete with million dollar jewels and a glamorous dress. Another lady sets out on a very sensuous individual date with the Lieutenant, as they create their own blend of wine. On the only group date, four women join Andy in a charity project, transforming a rundown Los Angeles elementary school playground into a safe haven for kindergarten kids -- which may change his perspective on the bachelorettes.
Andy faces a surprising but exciting journey across the country that will end in one woman's tears, when he escorts each of the remaining four bachelorettes to their hometowns.
Andy and remaining bachelorettes Bevin, Danielle and Tessa spend active days---and romantic nights---in Hawaii. There's cable riding, whale watching, snorkeling, kayaking, swimming and jungle hiking, plus a consultation with a psychic. But first, all four visit the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor, where Andy reflects on what life as a Navy wife could entail. And after he consults with his best friend, Andy bestows two roses. With them come invitations to meet his family.
In the season finale, Andy takes finalists Bevin and Tessa home to Lancaster, Pa., to meet his family. Bevin joins the Baldwins for lunch, Tessa for dinner. Then it's back to Hawaii for hiking, swimming, and romantic rides in a helicopter and on horses. There are professions of love from both bachelorettes, but Andy can respond in kind to only one.
