The dates began on "The Bachelor" in a January 13 episode. Juan Pablo Galavis gave the first gave date card to hairstylist Clare. He blindfolded her and whishked her off to his winter wonderland in L.A.
They ice skated and played in the snow, before getting into a hot tub. She talked about her dad and he gave her a rose. They later went to a private Josh Krajcik concert and danced while still in their swimsuits.
Back in the mansion, Lucy went topless in the hot tub while the other girls were waiting for the second date card. The second one-on-one date went to Kat.
She and Juan Pablo boarded a private plane to Salt Lake City. Upon arriving, Kat was dressed in clothes that lit up. They had a 5K run as a date. They danced and laughed during the Electric Run and at the end of it, he gave her a rose.
For the group date, Chelsie, Christine, Kelly, Casandra, Andi, Renee, Lauren, Alli, Chantel, Nikki, Elise, Victoria and Lucy took part in a photo shoot with puppies to raise money for dog rescues. Andi was uncomfortable that she had to show a lot of skin for the photo shoot and Juan Pablo comforted her. He decided to do the naked picture with her to make Andi feel more at ease.
Drama erupted as Victoria, apparently having too much drink, had a meltdown. She said things like, "If Juan Pablo is mine, I'm going to straddle him everyday. 'Cause life is about straddling. People and things." She also locked herself up in a bathroom stall because she's upset for not getting any one-on-one time with Juan Pablo. Meanwhile, Kelly got the rose from the group date.
Victoria ended up spending the night at a hotel after attempting to leave the show barefoot while in her bikini. The next day, Juan Pablo visited her who was completely embarassed about her antics. She apologized for "setting off the crazy train," but the Bachelor decided to send her packing immediately.
At the cocktail party, the ladies took turn to steal Juan Pablo away. Cassandra, meanwhile, cried as she felt it's difficult to stay away from her son. Single mom Renee comforted her before Juan Pablo assured her, if he felt there's nothing there between them, he would tell Cassandra and Renee right away because he knew their children were waiting back home.
Juan Pablo later gave the remaining roses to Cassandra, Nikki, Andi, Elise, Sharleen, Renee, Danielle, Lucy, Alli, Chelsie, Lauren and Christine. Amy, despite her smart move to "interview" him during the cocktail party, and Chantel were eliminated that night.
