On Monday, JAKE AND THE WOMEN TAKE A LIVELY TRIP UP THE SCENIC CALIFORNIA COAST, BUT THE BACHELOR IS FACED WITH HEARTBREAKING DECISIONS, LEADING HIM TO SHOCKING CHOICES AND ASTONISHING DEPARTURES, ON ABC’S “THE BACHELOR: ON THE WINGS OF LOVE,” MONDAY, JANUARY 25
“Episode 1404” – The Bachelor surprises the nine remaining women with a road trip up the picturesque California coast. Along the way, Jake will have roses at the ready on a one-on-one date, a group date and a dramatic two-on-one date, where only one woman can receive a rose. One lucky woman will snag an intimate date with Jake at a beautiful winery, but it will be up to the Bachelor to see if opposites really do attract. Six women will accompany Jake on a wild day of dune buggying, but with just one rose, the competition turns fierce. A romantic date with two anxious bachelorettes has Jake wondering if he can make a difficult choice. But, in the end, he makes some heartbreaking and shocking decisions that lead to unexpected exits, setting off a firestorm of emotions among the women, on “The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love,” MONDAY, JANUARY 25 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
The women fill up two rock star-type RVs and head up the panoramic coast highway to a vineyard in Santa Ynez where Jake arrives and delivers a date card. A very nervous bachelorette discovers her name on the card, but this city gal is dressed more for a night on the town, not an outdoor date in the country. Will Jake and woman discover that opposites attract? Or will she go home without a rose?
The following morning, the group hits the road, travelling to beautiful Pismo Beach, where they set up camp on the beach. Six lucky women join Jake for a crazy day of dune buggying and sand surfing. The Bachelor comes to the rescue when Vienna and Jessie get their dune buggy trapped in the sand. Corrie, one of the more timid women, surprises the rest when she tackles Jake in the sand and grabs some extra time with the Bachelor. That night the group spends an evening at the Madonna Inn, famous for its outrageous décor. A rose is a stake and the competition heats up, but Vienna’s strategy to have the last memorable moment of the night with Jake doesn’t sit well with the other women.
Our travelers drive up the dramatic northern California coast to stunning Big Sur and set up camp among the towering redwoods. That night Jake takes two apprehensive bachelorettes on a two-on-one date where only one can receive a rose. The threesome share a quiet dinner in Jake’s cabin in the woods. He takes each woman aside, hoping that his heart will lead him to make the right decision.
The rose ceremony looms and Jake realizes he needs to make some heartbreaking choices. He is determined to stand by his promise not to lead any of the women on if he knew they couldn’t become his wife in the end, and now he must face some hard truths. His shocking choices lead to unexpected departures, throwing the women into a tailspin of emotions. In the end, only five women will remain in the hunt for Jake’s heart.

Ashleigh, 25, an account manager from North Potomac, MD to watch online.
