Kyle, one of the first men to be eliminated lasat week from “The Bachelorette,”
“Episode 602” – Hot in Hollywood, sizzling on a Malibu beach and steamy in Las Vegas — the dates for this week have the 17 remaining bachelors dreaming of finding true love with Ali. Once at the mansion, they quickly learn that roses will be at stake on the one group date and two individual dates with Ali. However, the competition is revved up when they learn not all the men will get dates before the next rose ceremony, so the bachelors must take advantage of every opportunity to score points with the Bachelorette. But after careful deliberation, Ali must eliminate three men, as she tries to make her fairytale come true, on “The Bachelorette,” MONDAY, MAY 31 (8:00-10:02 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
Ali whisks away her first date – Frank — in a classic blue convertible, but they’re sidetracked when they develop car trouble right in the middle of the LA freeway. Undeterred, the couple grab a cab and head to famed Hollywood Boulevard, where they’re swarmed by fans and paparazzi. Frank can’t help but feel special as he poses with America’s sweetheart, who is handling all the attention with style and grace. Then it’s off to the iconic Hollywood sign, where Ali surprises Frank with a front row seat. With the legendary sign as a backdrop, they share a little about themselves – and the season’s first kiss. But it doesn’t stop there, as romance is in the air and, after retrieving their repaired convertible, they visit an old-fashioned make-out point that overlooks the twinkling city lights.
Meanwhile, back at the mansion, tensions are already running high, as Craig M. and Jesse have to be separated before they come to blows. The next day 12 sexy guys meet Ali at a beautiful Malibu beach house where they will strike a pose for a charity calendar photo shoot. A few unlucky bachelors find their wardrobe leaves little to the imagination; however the guys do their best to impress the Bachelorette, none more so than Ty, who steals the show when he takes time to serenade Ali. Later Jonathan shares the drama in the house, going so far as to call one man “dangerous.” With a rose at stake, each guy fights for the time with Ali to tell her he is there only for her.
Next up is Jesse, who is wowed when he meets Ali at a private jet to fly off to Las Vegas. They zip through the streets until they arrive at a chic hotel, where they have the place all to themselves. Ali invites Jesse to an extravagant dinner and a private concert by one of her favorites, English jazz-pop singer Jamie Cullum. Although the date oozes with romance, can Jesse show Ali he’s more than a pretty face, or will he be sent packing?
At a pressure-packed cocktail party, the drama escalates. One man, who already was on one of the dates, interrupts another bachelor’s time – and can’t control his urge to kiss Ali in front of all the other envious men. The man labeled as “dangerous” confronts the others in an attempt to out the backstabber.
At the end of the night, 14 men remain to battle for Ali’s heart.
