AceShowbiz - Colton Underwood continued his journey to find the love of his live in the second episode of "The Bachelor" season 23 which aired on Monday, January 14. The episode opened with a group date between Colton and Demi, Bri, Tracy, Elyse, Hannah G, Nicole, Onyeka as well as Catherine. The Bachelor took them to the theater where they would be telling stories of their "firsts."
During the date, which featured Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman as the special guests, Colton took the stage first, opening up about the first time he revealed about him being a virgin. His speech earned some chuckles from the ladies. Later, the ladies shared their own stories though Demi stood out the most as she managed to snatch an opportunity to get Colton's first kiss.
That definitely rubbed the other girls the wrong way, prompting Tracy to tell her that she didn't like her behavior. Demi apologized, but she sang different tunes in her confessional. She said that she's not going after what she wants.
Meanwhile, 31-year-old Elyse came clean about her age and Colton was more than impressed by the honesty. He praised her confidence and told her that he was "intrigued" by her. He made sure that Elyse got the message by liplocking. Later in the episode, Colton was seen giving Hannah G, who received the first impression rose, a pep talk after she opened up about some fears she had about the process. Nicole, on the other hand, talked about her autistic brother.
At the end, Colton had to give the group date rose to one lady only, and he chose Elyse.
For the one-on-one date, Hannah B and Colton went horseback riding. The date fell on her birthday, and that would make it even more special, but things were a bit awkward betwen them because she was so shy. Colton said in his confessional that he might not give her a rose if she still refused to open up.
Colton didn't give up on her though, as he tried to coax more out of Hannah, assuring her that she didn't have to be perfect all the time. It worked, because Hannah started to come out of her shell and received a rose from Colton.
While Hannah was having a date with Colton, Caelynn spilled some stories about the time when she and Hannah competed in Miss USA 2018. She said that they were close during the competition, but their friendship fell apart because Hannah allegedly was jealous of her as she was named as first runner-up.
Alex, Erika, Katie, Caelynn, Sydney, Tayshia, Nina, Kirpa, Caitlin, Courtney, Cassie and Heather later went to a "Bachelor" version of summer camp for the next group date. Billy Eichner made a surprise appearance during the date, which saw the winning team staying overnight at camp with Colton. After a heated competition, Heather, Courtney, Alex, Katie, Cassie and Caelynn won.
Heather told Colton that she'd never been kissed during her one-on-one time with the latter. Many would expect that Heather would finally get her first kiss from Colton but she didn't. Meanwhile, Caelynn reminisced her childhood during her one-on-one time. At the end, Colton picked Heather and gave her the group date rose.
At the rose ceremony, the rest of the ladies who hadn't got a rose were anxiously waiting for Colton announcing to whom he would give his roses. Tayshia, Cassie, Caelynn, Courtney, Demi, Nicole, Kirpa, Hannah G., Catherine, Bri, Sydney, Onyeka, Katie, Caitlin, Nina and Tracy received the roses, meaning Erika, Alex, Angelique and Annie were unfortunately eliminated.
