'The Bachelor' Recap: Joey Grazidei 'Confused' Over Bullying Drama Among the Women

In a new episode of the long-running ABC show, the leading man can be seen addressing rumors of bullying among the ladies, making it clear that he won't tolerate a bully.

AceShowbiz - Joey Graziadei's love journey continued in a new episode of "The Bachelor" season 28. Airing on Monday, February 5, the episode saw the leading man addressing rumors of bullying among the women, making it clear that he wouldn't tolerate a bully.

The episode kicked off with a letter for a group date. Maria and Sydney, who didn't like each other, were among the ladies chosen for the first group date of the episode and it was almost certain that this group date would be filled with drama.

Maria and Sydney's feud started after Sydney caught Maria talking behind Madina's back. She said that Madina should be proud of being a hot older woman. That prompted Sydney to tell the other women that Maria said Madina was too old. Upon hearing that, Madina was understandably offended.

Back to the group date, the ladies were participating in the Mrs. Right Pageant Show, which included a Q&A session, a Talent Show and a Best Outfit round. Some "The Golden Bachelor" alums, April Kirkwood, Susan Noles, Kathy Swarts and Nancy Hulkower, came to help Joey.

Lexi eventually was picked as the pageant winner after she kissed Joey as her special talent. The other girls were mad over the results as they didn't think kissing someone was a talent.

At one point, Madina opened up to Joey about the comments that were made about her age. "If I had to describe it, I felt like I was being bullied," she told Joey. When Joey asked who it was, Madina chose not to tell him the name. That prompted Joey to confront the ladies about the bullying. After Joey left, Maria asked Madina, "You referred to me as a bully? Let me just say that bully is a big word."

It was later time for a one-on-one date with Jenn. After picking out some wetsuits and surfboards, the pair went to enjoy surfing on the beach together. "I feel very, very special that Joey chose me today to go on this one-on-one," Jenn told Joey during their date.

Both of them appeared to have fun and Jenn was comfortable enough to get candid about her family during the night portion of the date. Joey presented Jenn with a rose at the end of their date.

For the next group date, tennis legend Pam Shriver and James Blake came to offer their help for the first-ever Bachelor Open. It was a fun match which was eventually won by Kelsey T. and Evalin. "This was probably the best date ever," Joey said. "What more could you ask for?"

Later in the episode, Joey and Daisy spent some time together where they talked about her cochlear implant. Joey touched her implant and told her that he was worried about her during the group date. They ended their private moment with a kiss.

Joey then surprised everyone when he canceled the cocktail party because he wanted to see them all immediately. Instead, they had a pool party where Sydney pulled Joey aside. Sydney told Joey that it was Maria who "verbally attacked" Madina. She also called Maria "embarrassing, weird, and dumb."

Terrified, Joey pulled Maria aside to talk about what Sydney told him. During their conversation, Maria told Joey that he couldn't like both her and Sydney because they're "completely different people." That made Joey confused as he said in confessional, "How Maria was talking to me felt more real than how Sydney was talking to me."

It was finally time for a Rose Ceremony. Joey handed out his roses to Lexi, Lea, Kelsey T., Rachel, Madina, Daisy, Jess, Edwina, Autumn, Allison and Maria. Sydney couldn't help but feel surprised when Joey "chose the bully." For the last rose, it went to Sydney. Evalin, Chrissa and Starr were sent home.
