On Monday ‘The Bachelorette’ Ali turns up the heat with the most daring date of the season. Look for a fierce competition, it breaks out among the men starring in the ‘Barenaked Ladies’ new music video. TA-DUM: One of the Bachelor’s devious secret is revealed.
Ali invites one man to take a leap of faith with her on a daredevil date, tightrope walking across two skyscrapers in downtown Los Angeles. Then nine men are treated to a private Barenaked Ladies concert only to find out that they’ll be the stars of the band’s new music video. One obsessed bachelor sneaks out on the rest of the men to claim some alone time with Ali. And a shy guy goes on an intimate barbeque with the Bachelorette, which ends in the hot tub. Can he handle a situation that the other men would die to be in? Finally, one man’s sly secret is revealed right before the tension-filled rose ceremony, but Ali will send some good guys home when she decides they’re just not right for her, on “The Bachelorette,” MONDAY, JUNE 7 (8:00-10:02 p.m., ET), on ABC. “Episode 603”.

Ali swoops in and takes one unsuspecting bachelor – Roberto — on a helicopter ride over Los Angeles to their one-on-one date. When the couple lands on top of one of the tall buildings, Ali reveals that they have dinner reservations. The problem is they are on the rooftop of an adjacent building. The only way to get to their romantic tryst is to transverse a 100-foot tightrope together. Will they both overcome their fears and take the first steps toward falling in love, or will Ali’s date fall from grace and be sent home without a rose?
Nine eager bachelors get an amazing surprise when Ali invites them to a private performance by chartbusters Barenaked Ladies. But the competition jumps to a whole new level when Ali reveals that the men will be acting in the music video for the band’s new single, “You Run Away.” The bachelors are each given an intimate scene to shoot with Ali. One lucky guy gets all steamy with the Bachelorette, while another breaks down when his screen kiss goes awry. But nothing compares to one man’s outrageous bedroom scene that ends with a passionate kiss – which is so hot, it sends one of Ali’s frontrunners into a jealous tailspin. At the roof-top after party, the fireworks continue for the same lucky bedroom bachelor, rocking the jealous one to his core.
The next day, Justin boldly makes a move to get more alone time with Ali. The fixated man slips out of the mansion without telling the other bachelors and treks to the Bachelorette’s house, where he surprises Ali and is rewarded with some romantic time alone with her.
Back at the mansion, Hunter, oblivious to Justin’s sneak attack, is left waiting patiently for his one-on-one date, which is a bit postponed because of Justin’s stealing Ali’s attention. Ali finally picks up Hunter and they head back to her place for an intimate barbeque. But the tone changes when the two slip into the hot tub to end the evening. Will this reserved man recover, or will he be sent home?
Finally at the rose ceremony, one man’s secret is revealed and the men turn on one another, leaving one bachelor in tears. Ali must narrow the field to 11 by evening’s end, and there are a few good men who will be disappointed.
