Brooks breaks his finger during a dodgeball game, while Brian is sent home before the rose ceremony after his 'ex-girlfriend' claims they're not over yet.
As hinted in a preview video, this week's episode of "The Bachelorette" was full of drama. The June 10 outing began with 10 guys being invited for a group date with Desiree Hartsock. They were playing dodgeball against pro players from the National Dodgeball Team.
The 10 guys were then divided into two teams, with Brad, Ben, Zack K, Brian and Drew on the blue team, and Brooks, Brandon, Chris, Mikey Tenerelli and Michael Garofola on the red team. Brooks broke his finger during the game and was rushed to hospital. The blue team won 2 out of 3 games.
Brooks returned for the after party and he got a kiss from Des. However, it was Chris who got a rose in the group date, so he went to a private concert with Des where they danced and kissed.
Des was about to have a one-on-one date with Kasey when host Chris Harrison called her, telling her that Brian had a girlfriend who claimed it hadn't been over between them. So they set Brian up with Des asking him questions about trust and relationships before bringing the jealous girlfriend, Stephanie Larimore, out.
Stephanie said Brian lied that he's leaving for a business trip and it was revealed that they slept together two days before he was on the show. Des eventually decided to dump Brian, thanking Stephanie for noticing her about this "lying, cheating, deceitful pig."
Des then turned her attention to Kasey as they headed to Sunset Boulevard for their date. They did a dance routine dangling from the side of a building. They later had a dinner on top of the building and things went wilder as they jumped into a pool despite the freezing weather. They were making out and all the madness was paid off for Kasey as Des gave her a rose.
For the second group date, Des took Zak, James, Juan Pablo, Bryden and Dan to participate in a stunt lesson with the stunt coordinator of Johnny Depp's movie "The Lone Ranger". The guy who did the best stunt for Des would go on a movie date with her. Des picked up Juan as the winner and they kissed while watching "The Lone Ranger" on theater.
They rejoined the group for a party at the ranch, where Bryden who was hesitant to make the moves on Des finally spent some quality time with her. James opened up about his worries that he might waste his time being on the show while his father's ailing back home. Des comforted him by giving him a rose.
Des then decided to scrap the weekly cocktail party and change it with a pool party in the afternoon. Ben upset the other guys again as he stole Des away for 15 minutes for a car ride even before she stepped out of the car. At the pool party, Mikey T. confronted Ben who was lying about having a private time with Des. Michael G. joined the argument, calling Ben a liar.
At the rose ceremony, Des handed out the roses to Bryden, Juan, Zak W., Brooks, Drew, Zack K, Brad, Michael G., Mikey T., and the so-called villain of this season, Ben. Brandon, who managed to steal a kiss from Des at the pool party, ended up being sent packing along with Dan.
