The Bachelor RECAP 02/04/13: Season 17 Episode 5

THE BACHELOR Sean Lowe returns to ABC tonight with a new episode.  This week we have a two night Bachelor event.  On tonight’s show Sean takes his search for love on the road, escorting the 11 remaining women to Montana, while the dreade two-on-one date looms for Tierra and Jackie.  Did you watch last week’s episode? We did and we recapped it for you HERE.

On last week’s show a challenging week was ahead for the 13 remaining bachelorettes as Selma learned that what she thought was an opulent date would actually be a rock climbing adventure. Eight women join Sean for a rock’em sock’em roller derby match, which ended with a trip to the hospital. Leslie H. was the stunning bachelorette that Sean surprised with a Rodeo Drive shopping spree a la “Pretty Woman,” and an elegant romantic date that ended with the couple being treated to a VIP private concert from folk-rock-pop artist Ben Taylor. But the controversy continued to swirl around one disruptive woman even as the others try to deepen their connection with Sean.  A tension-filled rose ceremony left 11 bachelorettes remaining to join Sean on a journey around the world to find love.

A two-night Bachelor special event begins tonight with Sean whisking the remaining 11 bachelorettes away to picturesque Whitefish, Montana, to explore his romantic connections. But the outspoken Tierra and sweet natured Jackie face off in the dramatic two-on-one date, and one of them will be sent home immediately. The Bachelor attempts to escalate his relationship with Lindsay to new heights when the couple takes an astounding helicopter ride over the gorgeous mountains of Montana’s Glacier National Park. Eight women get to compete in a Montana relay race, including milking goats, with the winning team getting to spend more time with Sean. And one controversial bachelorette continues to cause a firestorm in the house, leaving Sean to worry if he will ever find his wife.

Tonight’s episode begins nowRefresh Page for Updates

Tonight there will be three different dates.  There will be a group date, a one on one date, and a two on one date where only one girl will return.  The girls are given an hour to pack and head to the airport because they are going to meet Sean in Whitefish, Montana.


Tierra was patiently waiting and she feels that she deserves to go on that date.  The girl chosen to go on the one on one with Sean is Lindsay.  After she gets ready she is met by Sean and they head to the back of the lodge to a waiting helicopter.  Sean admits that he first thought Lindsay was a tad too crazy for him since she showed up in a wedding dress and he almost sent her home.  He is glad he didn’t, because she could possibly be his future wife.

Meanwhile, back at the house, the girl’s find out who will be going on the group date and who will be going on the one on one date with Sean.  For the group date it will be Selma, Ashlee, Desiree, Catherine, Sarah, Leslie, Robin, and Daniela.  The girls going on the two on one date will be Tierra and Jackie.  Tierra couldn’t be happier.

During the helicopter ride the couple tours Glacier National Park and Blackfeet Indian Reservation.  While the two are snuggling by a fire Lindsay tells Sean about her background.  Lindsay was an Army brat and did not like moving all over the place.  Sean believes that she is seeking security in a family and he could possibly be the one to give her that.  He’s got one more surprise for her and takes her outside and around the corner where the entire town of Whitefish is watching Sarah Darling give a concert.


The girls meet up with Sean in the great outdoors and Selma is the first to throw herself at him.  After everyone says there hello’s the group walks over to see what they will be doing.  The girls are split in to two groups.  They must canoe to the other side of the lake, then run back and drag a bale of hay to another area, then cross cut some wood and finally milk a goat and drink it for the win.  Desiree’s red team wins.

After the blue team is eliminated they are sent home, but Sean has second thoughts and sends word for the girls to get ready for the gathering.  He feels that there was no reason to send the girls back since one of them could possibly be his future girlfriend.  He tells the girls from the red team and they are pissed.  The first girl he gets alone time with is Sarah.

Back at the house, the girls are getting ready and Tierra is scheming.  She is upset that Sean knows she has patiently waited for a one on one with him and she decides to head on over to the party to find out what he was thinking.

While Sean is being interviewed by producers on camera, Tierra shows up to surprise him.  Desperate or psychotic?

Sean looks incredibly happy to see her, but doesn’t know why she’s there.  Tierra wants to know why she was picked for the two on one and to let him know how she felt overall.  After she leaves Sean says “I worry about Tierra, because I feel like she can’t handle how this works.”  He also knows that he has eight other girls that he needs to spend time with.

Catherine takes Sean outside and he carries her to a private area.  He feels like she is confident in herself and doesn’t have to worry about anything.  Sean sits on a bench and puts Catherine on his lap.  He tells her that he loves spending time with her.  Daniella walks out and sees this.  She walks back inside and starts crying because she is so upset.  After Sean and Catherine come back inside Daniella steals him away to have a talk with him.  She tells him how she feels and goes in for a kiss.  At the end of the night he chooses to give the rose to Daniella.


The girls travel to the Bar W Guest Ranch.  Tierra is confident that she will get the rose at the end of the date, because she got a head start on the date the night before.  Jackie believes she has a chance and says she’s not going to let Tierra run the date.  She wants to tell Sean all about Tierra and her devious ways.  She also tells Sean that Tierra spotted a guy at the airport and commented that he was cute.  If I remember correctly, the last girl who trash talked the other girls to Sean was sent home that night.  This does not bode well for Jackie.

The two girls are at dinner with Sean and he feels like there is so much drama involved with being with Tierra.  He wants one on one time with her and she knows feels that Jackie was saying bad things about her.  She tells him about her ex who passed away.  She tells him that she is scared to get close to anyone because she doesn’t want to lose another person and after that he is more understanding as to why she is the way she is and offers her the rose.

After Jackie leaves Sean takes Tierra out for another surprise.  There is a small fire going with blankets nearby.  As they get comfortable fireworks begin to explode in the sky.  Jackie is seen crying her eyes out in the limo and the girls at the house are looking outside and they know that the show is for Tierra.


At the weekly cocktail party the girls are all upset that Tierra was chosen over Jackie.  Sean is upbeat and says he feels like a weight has been lifted off of him.

The first girl Sean spends time with is Desiree.  He is upset that she feels confused but will not tell him why she is confused.  He feels that she is upset that he kept Tierra instead of Jackie.  Now, Sean is not happy with how things are going with Desiree.

Back at inside the party the girls start to complain that Jackie should not have been sent home because she is a good person, clearly implying that it should have been Tierra who was sent home.  Tierra stands up and walks out.  She has had it.  Robyn gets up and goes to talk to her because she has had it with Tierra.  She tries to tell her that she’s tired of her being fake.  Tierra tells her that she is tired of them always talking about her and that she doesn’t care what they think because she is there for Sean.  In the middle of Robyn and Tierra’s argument Sean walks through the room.  He is not happy about the situation.  He takes Tierra to the side to find out what’s going on and she tells him that she’s tired of being attacked by everyone.  He feels upset that Tierra is upset but says he doesn’t want to be naïve about the situation.  He decides to ask one of the girls if Tierra has done something that could directly affect him, but she can only say that Tierra is cold and hasn’t formed any real relationships with any of the girls in the house.  This just leaves Sean more frustrated.  He tells the girls that he will see them at the rose ceremony and they notice that he is upset.

Sean is interviewed and he says that he is very disheartened at the drama going on and that it’s possible his wife is not in there.


Tierra, Daniela and Lindsay each have a rose and are safe.  Sean says he is left with more questions.  The first girl who is offered a rose is Selma.  Catherine is offered a rose.  Lesley is offered a rose.  Ashlee is offered a rose.  Sarah is offered a rose.  The last rose goes to…Desiree.  Robyn must say her good byes.  Robyn thinks that Sean believes she was the one starting drama in the house.  She admits that she is bitter.

See you next week!
