AceShowbiz - "The Bachelorette" season 14 aired its episode 2 on Monday, June 4. The episode kicked off with a group date between Becca Kufrin and Clay, Nick, Chris R., David, Jean Blanc, Jordan, Connor and Lincoln. The men joined Becca for a day of pampering after she surprised them with custom tuxes and champagne.
They later had to get down and dirty in a messy obstacle course to win Becca's heart and Lincoln won. Despite sparking suspicion among others who thought that he cheated on the course, Lincoln earned a kiss from the Bachelorette.
He didn't waste time to steal Becca away for one-on-one time during the nighttime portion of the date, further annoyed the other guys. At one point, Connor was so pissed by Lincoln who bragged his photo with Becca during the earlier course. The former took the picture and throwed it away. Lincoln told Becca of what happened, adding that he felt physically threatened by Connor.
Connor didn't just watch Lincoln tried to tarnish his image in front of Becca, as he later filled her in on his side of the story. At the end of the date, Becca gave the group date rose to Jean Blanc.
The first one-on-one date went to Blake. He helped Becca destroy items that reminded her of ex-fiance and "The Bachelor" star Arie Luyendyk Jr., who dumped her for runner-up Lauren Burnham. The date went well as they continued bonding throughout the date. Blake shared to her that he went through similar breakup with his ex. "Since night one, I have felt such comfort and a sense of ease with you," Becca said. "I feel like we’re on the same page with what we're looking for in life and it just restores so much hope." After the heart-to-heart moment, Blake received the rose from Becca.
The next group date saw Garrett, Rickey, John, Ryan, Alex, Chris, Trent, Leo, Wills and Colton joining Becca in an intense gym class. The date was fun, until Colton revealed a bombshell confession to Becca. He told her that he used to date Tia Booth, Becca's friend and co-star in Arie's season of "The Bachelor", before coming to the show.
"We had a weekend together and we had a good time, but for me the timing wasn't right to grow what was a spark into a flame," he told Becca. "If my feelings were strong enough, I wouldn't have came on [the show]. I think that from what I know of you, we could build something awesome. We could have the time. Whereas it wasn't there, moving forward, with her."
It was a huge shock for Becca. "It makes me feel a little bit sick. I'm very attracted to you, I really like where our conversation was on night one and I feel like we had a lot in common, but it's a very tricky situation," she responded, adding that she's now in "a very strange position."
She looked down afterwards but managed to be more at ease after having great conversations with some of the suitors during the cocktail party. Jordan served as the highlight of the evening as he stripped down to his briefs. He had a one-on-one moment with Becca, prompting David to confront him.
Becca later had a chance to talk to Colton about Tia. Colton apologized and assured her that he joined the show because he wanted to get to know her. He also vowed to be honest and royal to her. Despite everything that happened that day, Becca still gave Colton the final rose. Jean Blanc, Blake, Wills, Chris R., Jason, John, Clay, Mike, Connor, Leo, David, Garrett, Nick, Ryan, Christon, Jordan and Lincoln were also among those who received the roses. With that, Alex, Rickey and Trent were eliminated.
