“Episode 604” – The Big Apple rolls out the red carpet, as the remaining 11 men begin an exciting trip around the world to capture Ali’s heart.

The Bachelorette arrives in New York City before the men to participate in a fun, fabulous make-over and photo shoot for InStyle.

Kasey and Ali share a special day in New York, beginning with a panoramic helicopter tour of the city and ending with a giddy late night date at the Museum of Natural History. Seven eager bachelors hit the bright lights of Broadway, as they audition on stage at the hit musical “The Lion King,” to not only win alone time with Ali but to have the extraordinary opportunity to perform with her that night in the Tony Award-winning show.

Then Ali, despite falling ill, and Chris L. still manage to have a romantic night topped off by a special performance by Bachelorette favorite singer-songwriter Joshua Radin and the Harlem Boys Choir.

But Kasey slips out of the men’s New York suite, mysteriously returning with a bandage on his wrist. What happened to him?

All is revealed at the stressful rose ceremony where two men will need to leave, on “The Bachelorette,” MONDAY, JUNE 14 (8:00-10:02 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network. “Episode 604” –
Ali has a great time trading in her casual California style for sexy, date night outfits with the help of InStyle during her makeover and photo shoot.

The looks will be featured in the magazine’s July issue (on sale June 18). In the meanwhile, Kasey is tapped for a one-on-one date and vows to “guard and protect Ali’s heart” and return with a rose.

A sweeping helicopter tour over Manhattan takes the couple to Liberty Island, where they have a romantic sunset picnic.

Then the Bachelorette takes Kasey for a night time exploration of the Museum of Natural History by flashlight, as they enjoy having the empty museum all to themselves. But when they settle down for some serious talk, will Ali be satisfied with Kasey’s answers?

Then seven enthusiastic bachelors visit Broadway’s long-running, landmark musical, “The Lion King.” The show’s producer, Thomas Schumacher, surprises the men when he tells them that they will audition on the stage for alone time with Ali. A good-natured, but intense competition ensues among the men, who attempt to sing and dance their way into Ali’s heart. In the end, Ali selects one lucky bachelor, who also will be featured with her in that night’s performance of “The Lion King” in front of a packed house.

The intense schedule is getting to Ali and, exhausted and emotionally drained, she is forced to cancel her elaborate plans for her individual date with Chris L. After he thoughtfully brings her flowers and chicken soup, Ali, feeling revived, takes Chris out for his favorite meal and then tops it off with a romantic rooftop performance by one of her favorite singer-songwriters, Joshua Radin, along with the famed Harlem Boys Choir.

Meanwhile Kasey is still reeling from Ali’s intense questioning of him and sneaks away from the men’s suite, only to return a few hours later with a bandaged wrist. What was he really up to?

The tension at the cocktail party is ratcheted up as an emotional Kasey reveals his secret that he hopes will prove his sincerity to Ali. Finally, nine men remain on this world wide journey for Ali’s love. Next stop is Iceland.

Chris L., 33, landscaper from Cape Cod, MA
