The Bachelor Chris Soules Recap 2/2/15 – Week 5 – Who Went Home – 9 Women Left
It is the 5th week of The Bachelor Chris Soules’ journey to finding a woman to hand the final rose. He and the 11 remaining women will leave California for the first time this season to begin their journey around the country. At the end of this week’s episode, there will be nine woman remaining and the next stop is South Dakota (exciting right?). This week Chris and the ladies will be heading to Santa Fe, New Mexico.
The first one-on-one date goes to Carly. The couple first has to survive a very awkward, intimate meeting with the “Love Guru,” who puts them through a series of sexual exercises which leave them practically naked, putting their connection on a fast track. Will the sexual tension lead to an intimate connection or will the couple get cold feet?
Kelsey will play a big part in this week’s episode. Kelsey has played the part of grieving widow on the show, but the women don’t believe her to be the sympathetic character she wants us all to believe and she’s not, vowing she will do whatever it takes to win Chris’ heart.
Read all the details of Kelsey Poe’s revealing being a widow here.
A group date with nine women (Whitney, Megan, Samantha, Mackenzie, Kelsey, Becca, Ashley I., Kaitlyn, and Jade) will ride the white water rapids of the Rio Grande River. The outdoor adventure quickly turns dangerous when one bachelorette falls overboard into the icy rushing water. She ends up being completely fine.
After the mishap, the group relaxes at a local hotel and gets ready to spend a special night with the Bachelor. However, Jordan (who was eliminated during the 2nd week after drinking way too much) drives all the way from Colorado to Mexico to get another chance to win Chris’ heart. How does she know where to find them? This must be a production stunt. Chris rebuffs her love and sends Jordan home for the 2nd time. But not before upsetting all the women and ruining the evening.
Finally, Chris sneaks into Britt’s hotel room in the early morning hours and whisks her away on one of the most romantic dates of the season: a hot air balloon ride as the sun rises. Based on the photos – see above, the couple seem to have had an amazing time and look really happy.
Part two of the couple’s passionate date might put Britt way ahead of the group. Too bad the other bachelorettes don’t think she is being truthful about her intentions. Kelsey claims that Britt said she didn’t want to have children for a long time, meanwhile we see Britt telling Chris she wants 100 kids. Who should we believe – the lying Kelsey or Britt?
Britt brags to the other woman about her date, revealing play-by-play of her date with Chris. Kelsey is desperate to get Chris’ attention and pays him a secret visit that she hopes will insure her getting a rose. Will her heartbreaking personal story be seen as a desperate move for attention or will she gain Chris’ sympathy? Unless Chris is evil – I am sure he will feel sympathetic towards Kelsey. Do you think Kelsey is using her status as a widow, to reel him in??
