AceShowbiz - "The Bachelor" season 22 episode 5 saw Arie Luyendyk Jr. and the remaining 12 ladies kicking things off in Fort Lauerdale. The race car driver started the episode, which aired on Monday, January 29, with a one-on-one date with Chelsea.
Arie and Chelsea had some romantic time on a yacht. After getting hot and heavy on a jetski, they went for a dinner. Chelsea, who is a mom, told Arie why her relationship with her child's father didn't work out, and her opening up to him further connected them emotionally. Arie later gave Chelsea a rose, keeping her for another week.
The second date was a group date with Seinne, Bekah, Lauren B., Kendall, Ashley, Becca, Jenna, Jacqueline, Marikh, Krystal and Maquel, which meant Tia was up for the last one-on-one. The group date was at a bowling alley and the ladies were asked to form a team. Only the winning team would join him at an after-party that night, while the losing team would be sent back to the mansion immediately. Krystal was among the winning team alongside Jenna, Becca, Maquel and Jacqueline.
However, Arie didn't have the heart to let the losing team go and allowed them to stay. That, obviously, didn't sit well with Krystal. She even went as far to calling Arie "a liar," according to Maquel. "On the bus, on the way home, Krystal literally, like, lost her mind," Ashley added.
Looking obviously pissed off, Krystal decided to sit out the after-party. When Arie noticed Krystal was not present, Bekah told him, "She's kind of throwing a fit in her room right now because everyone else got included on the date." Jenna added, "She was basically calling you a liar multiple times."
Arie then went upstairs to check on Krystal. After a tense talk, however, Arie made a surprising decision to leave her upstairs, saying that she wasn't invited to the party. Ouch! The party went on just fine with Arie having a great time with Kendall, though he gave the group date rose to Lauren.
For the last one-on-one, Arie and Tia opted for a romantic boar ride through the Everglades. They cozied up to each other and Tia told Arie that she's falling in love with him. With the undeniable chemistry between the two, it doesn't come as surprise if Arie gave Tia a rose.
It finally was the time for the rose ceremony. Viewers might think with her bizarre rant in that episode, it would be the last night for Krystal. But no, Arie kept her for another week as he gave her a rose alongside Bekah, Seinne, Kendall, Becca, Jacqueline and Jenna. Marikh and Ashley were eliminated.
