There is no Next Episode of The Bachelor planned.
What do a stunning blonde beauty with a mysterious family past, a dramatic lady who bites tin cans in half and an outrageous woman with few inhibitions have in common? They're all on the hunt for the new Bachelor, Matt Grant, when the 12th edition of ABC's popular romance reality series, "The Bachelor: London Calling," premieres.
"Episode 1203" -- Matt turns up the heat on a glamorous one-on-one date with Holly to a private Hollywood screening and on a romantic tryst with Shayne at a California winery, with both rendezvous having a high-stakes rose on the line -- if the bachelorette doesn't receive a rose, she goes home. The Bachelor's group date with ten women to play a steamy game of rugby - Matt's favorite English sport - gets down and dirty as the bachelorettes try to impress him with their athletic prowess. Even with more individual time with his ladies, Matt is more confused than ever about which women are right for him.
The nine remaining bachelorettes are falling hard for Matt. Six women are treated to a delightful afternoon of tennis and a proper English tea, but the date ends with one woman in tears. Matt experiences a slice of Americana, as he and Amanda go out for an evening of 1950s classic cars, burgers and fun on Santa Monica Pier. And the stakes are especially high on a special two-on-one home cooking date with Marshana and Holly; Matt must choose and give a rose to one woman, sending the other home immediately.
Now the pressure is really on, as Matt struggles to decide which four women he'll escort home to meet their families. But first he surprises the six remaining women with a trip to snowy Sun Valley, Idaho. Chelsea experiences a fairytale date with the handsome Bachelor, complete with a romantic candlelit dinner and a ride in a horse-drawn sleigh, while Noelle shares a night of ice skating under the stars. And, on the only group date, it's off to the slopes, as Matt takes the other four women on a ski date and finishes with a hot trip to a spa. But, unbeknownst to Matt, a screaming match breaks out among the women in the ski chateau, which almost leads to fisticuffs. The claws come out and tears reign as the Bachelor needs to select his final four ladies.
The stakes are high for Matt as he leaves his Malibu home for an exciting, emotionally-charged journey across the country to visit the final four women's hometowns and ends up being the target of an elaborate prank by Amanda that leads to one of the most stunning hometown visits ever.
Romantic adventures await Matt and the final three women - Amanda, Chelsea and Shayne - as they travel to the Caribbean for overnight dates in Barbados. From beautiful seaside excursions to exotic jungle adventures, the dates are filled with excitement and passion, as Matt continues to explore what his future would be like with each of these potential mates. At the end of each evening, the Bachelor will present the Bachelorette with an invitation to spend the night in a "fantasy suite," with the hope that she will accept. But will she? It's a wild, romantic ride with each of the women -- until Matt has to make a heart-wrenching decision to eliminate one of them
Matt faces an excruciating decision between Chelsea and Shayne before making the commitment of his life, on the gripping Season Finale that ends with one heartbroken bachelorette in tears and other engaged to be married.
