More tears were shed in the latest episode of "The Bachelor" season 18. Juan Pablo Galavis got too close with one of the girls in the fifth episode set in Vietnam, but later seemingly regretted his action.
The episode began with a one-on-one date with Renee. They went shopping at local markets and bought gifts for their children. They later had a romantic dinner where they talked about their kids. At the end of the night, Juan Pablo gave her a rose but didn't kiss her as she had expected.
Drama ensued during the group date with Sharleen, Chelsie, Clare, Kelly, Ali, Danielle, Kat, Cassandra and Andi. They went canoeing in a group of two and since Clare didn't have a partner, Juan Pablo joined her. The twosome made out in front of other girls, making them jealous.
During a cocktail reception, Juan Pablo also took Clare to his private suite to go swimming while the other women were waiting for him. After rejoining the group, Juan Pablo spent some private time with Sharleen on the beach, but he ended up giving the group date rose to Clare.
After everyone returned to their rooms, Clare sneaked out to wake up Juan Pablo at 4 A.M. and asked him to go for a swim in the ocean. "We just went for it, and I don't regret it. Pure bliss in every way," she said after their skinny-dipping session.
Next was Nikki's turn to have a one-on-one date with Juan Pablo. They went rappelling in a cave which challenged her fear of heights. They eventually explored the cave together. During a dinner, she revealed that she once dated another man with a kid and she thought she's mature enough to be a stepmom.
Juan Pablo gave Nikki a rose as he thought she's a "potential wife", and they made out. Nikki said she was "on cloud nine" during the date.
Meanwhile, Juan Pablo told the camera about skinny dipping with Clare. "Maybe I made a mistake the other night... taking it too far with Clare," he confessed. He later made Clare cry after telling her that what they did in the ocean "wasn't right" and wasn't "fair" to the other 10 girls, or his daughter Camila.
Clare said their "conversation blind-sided her" and told the camera, "My feelings were really really hurt." He finally consoled her and asked her to stop crying. Tweeting while the show was airing, the former soccer player wrote, "I ADMIT it, in tonight's EPISODE I made a MISTAKE..."
When it's time for elimination, Juan Pablo gave the remaining roses to Sharleen, Cassandra, Chelsie, Kat and Andi, and sent home Danielle, Alli, and Kelli.
In an interview with TV Guide, host Chris Harrison said he thought Juan Pablo did hurt Clare with they way he treated her. "When she showed up he was fully into it like this is awesome and sexy and she was as happy as can be and then he turns around and treats her like all of a sudden she did something wrong and broke the rules. It was not only confusing, but it was borderline rude. We even told him as much, but he didn't see it that way. Even though he apologized later I don't think he really understood how cheap he made her feel," Chris said.
He added, "In my deliberation I said, 'You're not getting this, you really hurt her feelings, you need to fix it and apologize.' But there are cultural differences with him and things do get lost in translation and how it's interpreted. It's his perspective; it's not right or wrong. So it made for interesting conversations and I had to learn to stand back a little bit and respect that."
