To make things even better, they flew the plane directly over the mansion so allll the other girls could see. They then piggy back rode to a hottub in the middle of the desert, because they wanted the most Bachelor moment of any Bachelor, Bachelor. She of course got a rose.
For the group date, the girls were Amanda, Hailey, Jennifer, Shushana, Leah, Lauren H., Olivia, Jami, Rachael, Lace, Emily, and Amber. They had to play a game of soccer, and the girls who won got to continue on the date. Of course Olivia pulled him away immediately, and the other girls made fun of her toes. To which her response was ‘perfection is SO lame’. Amber was the one who got the rose.
Jubilee got the other one-on-one date and had the most real reaction to it. The day of she pissed off a lot of the girls because she didn’t seem appreciative of the date. But on the date itself she shared a touching story about her past with Ben that earned her the rose.
Before the rose ceremony, Ben found out that two members close to his family had passed away. Olivia immediately whisked him away and talked about her cankles and even teared up in front of him, which pissed him off, naturally.
Jubilee took him to give him a massage because she wanted to make him feel better, and because all the other girls were being assholes to her. The girls all tried to get Jubilee to talk to them, even though she didn’t want to, which led her to escape to the bathroom. Ben went to comfort her and they all blamed Jubilee, even though it was all their faults to begin with. Kudos to Ben, though.
Lace then got upset and took Ben outside to chat. As she said “Like my tattoo says, you can’t love someone else until you truly love yourself”, so she decided to go home to work on herself. Honestly, good for Lace. She realized she needed to focus on her, and that takes guts and some deep self reflection. Good. For. HER. She just won the show. I’m really proud of her and just hope that finding herself will lead to better tattoos in the future.
After Lace left, Ben gave the roses to the following women: Lauren H., Amanda, Becca, Hailey, Emily, Rachael, Caila, Jojo, Jennifer, Leah, and (unfortunately), Olivia. Sending home Shushana and Jami.
