“Episode 1403: Jacke shockingly sends one woman home on the spot after being pushed too hard, and the woman isolates one bachelorette and makes her a target come Monday’s episode 1403: ‘The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love’

“Episode 1403” – Tensions mount among the 12 remaining bachelorettes and jealousy reigns when it’s revealed that there will be two special one-on-one dates – each with a rose at stake — and a group date. Once again, some women will not go on a date at all. One ecstatic woman hops on Jake’s motorcycle and then on a helicopter for one of the most adventurous dates yet: a bungee jump off the infamous Bridge to Nowhere. Eight bachelorettes visit Jon Lovitz’ popular Hollywood comedy club. But laughter turns to anxiety when they learn they each will perform a standup routine – not just for Jake, but a packed house. On the last individual date, Jake whisks another lucky woman away to Sea World in San Diego, where a huge surprise awaits. Finally, a rift forms in the house with all the women pitted against one bachelorette who claims to be there only to win Jake’s heart, leading to an explosive rose ceremony, on “The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love,” MONDAY, JANUARY 18 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

One woman’s elation at being alone with Jake turns to apprehension when the couple’s chopper lands on a towering bridge nestled in the San Gabriel Mountains. She becomes a nervous wreck when it becomes apparent that they will bungee jump off the Bridge to Nowhere. Ironically, Jake is also afraid of heights. Will they both overcome their fears and take a leap of faith together, or will Jake send her home without a rose?

Curtain up! Eight bachelorettes visit the famous Jon Lovitz Comedy Club. After sharing a few jokes with the women, Lovitz explains that they will be the ones performing stand up in his club that night. The fun and panic begins, especially for Ashleigh, who starts to break down with bad case of stage fright. One more surprise: they will be working in front of a full audience, not just Jake. One by one, the bachelorettes nervously perform their routines. Corrie lampoons a fellow bachelorette, while Elizabeth pushes the bounds of good taste and Michelle starts to get flop sweat when her jokes fall flat. Later Jake takes the women to a VIP after party and tries to get alone time with some of them. But the night takes a shocking turn when one bachelorette pushes him too far and he unexpectedly sends her home on the spot and ends the party.

The next morning, Jake picks up a lucky bachelorette with a helicopter right in the mansion’s driveway. As the rest of the women enviously look on, they fly off to San Diego’s Sea World. The entire park is closed down for them; however he stuns her with another bigger surprise. But is their connection strong enough for Jake to give her a rose?

A tension-filled cocktail party reveals a division in the house, with one woman dramatically set against the rest of the bachelorettes. Is she really there just for Jake, as she claims? At the end of the contentious night, nine women continue on the fairytale journey.
