As Drew drops the ugly truth to Des, James is sent home despite his denial of the accusation that he is in the competition to be the next 'Bachelor'.
After failing to let Des know about James' true intention of joining "The Bachelorette" in Germany, would the guys finally do it? The answer was finally revealed in the July 1 episode, which saw Desiree Hartsock and the remaining eight men exploring the beautiful city of Barcelona in Spain. Beforehand, Des got to go on a one-on-one date with Drew first.
Drew and Des had a fun spending times together as the two set out to travel around the gorgeous city. He even made a surprise move by interrupting their romantic dinner only to take her into an alleyway for a passionate kiss right in front of the cameras. Of course, she was pleased with it and handed him the date rose.
However, the romantic night immediately turned grim as Drew told her about James, who was overheard saying that he actually wanted to be in the Top Four so that he would have a chance to be the next "Bachelor". "Wow," so Des responded to it.
The next day, Brooks, Chris, Kasey, Michael and Juan Pablo had enjoyable group date with Des in a soccer field. Everything seemed fine until in the evening, Kasey, Chris and Michael confronted James about his conversation back in Munich. The conversation got heated up, leaving Des to decide to forgo the group date rose and settle the matters with James alone.
After that terrible night, Zak hoped to put a smile on Des' face during their one-on-one date in the next morning, and it worked well with the date rose eventually given to him after they ended the day with a romantic dinner.
With no cocktail party in the week, the rose ceremony was more tense. Saying that it would be her "hardest" decision to make, Des in the end sent Kasey, Juan Pablo and James home.
"I don't get how this came down this way," said James while making his way out, complaining he got "bullied right out the door."
