On tonight’s episode ran high once Chris Harrison brought out the first impression rose, with those who haven’t spoken with the handsome bachelor grew more anxious by the minute. One recently heartbroken woman tearfully related her story of being left at the altar by her former fiancé.

Tonight’s episode of The Bachelor opens with the girls in the mansion waiting for Juan Pablo to arrive. He finally makes his appearance, and he picks Clare up for their very first 1-on-1 date. Juan Pablo blindfolds Clare and helps her into his car. On the way to their date he keeps dropping hints that they are going to “chill.” Juan confides that he chose Clare to go on his first 1-on-1 date because when she got out of the limo she seemed very funny and clever. They arrive at the Winter Wonderland, and Juan gives blind-folded Clare a piggy-back ride to the fake snow they have brought in. He finally removes her blindfold and she is blown away by the Winter Wonderland, she thinks it is a “perfect fairytale.” They hit the snow and go sleigh-riding.
Meanwhile back at the mansion the girls are realizing that “Free Spirit” Lucy “doesn’t leave much to the imagination.” She is in the hot-tub with a group of the girls, completely nude. Some of them definitely are feeling a little uncomfortable.
Back at the Winter Wonderland Clare and Juan Pablo are ice-skating, and Clare is having an “amazing time,” despite the fact that she clearly can’t skate at all.
The girls receive another invitation from Juan Pablo, and they learn that the next 1-on-1 date will go to Kat.
Clare and Juan Pablo hop in the hot-tub at the Winter Wonderland. Clare gives Juan Pablo a back-rub and pours her heart out to him. She confesses that she has been waiting for a man to come into her life that is as perfect as her Dad was. She tells Juan she was “Daddy’s Little Girl.” Juan understands where Clare is coming from, if her Dad treated her like a princess, then whatever Man she spends the rest of her life with should treat her like a Princess also. Juan surprises Clare with a rose during their date. And, the first Juan Pablo kiss goes to…Clare!
After their make-out session in the hot-tub, Clare and Juan hear music. X Factor alum Josh Krajcik has come to Winter Wonderland to play them their own private concert.
It’s the next day and Kat is waiting for her 1-on-1 date with Juan Pablo. She received a date card that said “Kat, I can feel the electricity.” She says she “definitely has butterflies.” Juan was attracted to Kat because when she got out of the limo she told him she was a dancer.
Juan picks up Kat and takes her to the airport, where they board a private jet. On the way to their date, Juan surprises Kate with and “electric outfit” that glows in the dark and lights up. Kat and Juan Pablor finally arrive at their date, and Kat realizes they are at the starting line for the Electric Run in Salt Lake City, Utah. There are literally thousands of people doing the run, and there is live music.
Back at the mansion, the girls receive another date card. Chelsea, Christy, Kelly, Cassandra, Andi, Lauren, Chantel, Elisa, Lucy, and Victoria will be going on the next group date. The card they receives says “Say Cheese!”
Kat and Juan Pablo finally arrive at the finish line of the Electric Run, and the DJ calls Juan Pablo and Kat up on stage in front of thousands of people. In front of everyone, Juan Pablo gives Kat her rose.
It’s time for the girls’ group date, and they all pile into the limo. They arrive at their destination, and Juan Pablo is waiting outside for them. Juan bangs on the door of a ware house and the door opens, and the girls realize they are at a photo-shoot. Juan reveals to them they are each going to be assigned a dog as their partner. The girls are introduced to the founder of “Models & Mutts” and “Best Friends Animal Society.” They will each have to take a photo with a dog, and the photos will be used to find the dogs homes.
Lucy has to wear a fire hydrant costume, and Alli is covered in full-body paint so she looks like her dog’s twin. Elise and Andi are a little upset about her photo shoot, they have to go completely nude and hold signs over their private areas. Elise tries to convince Lucy to switch with her, since she has no problem being naked. Lucy agrees to the switch.
The photo shoots start, and the girls begin posing with their dogs and Juan Pablo. Meanwhile, Andi is having a borderline panic attack, trying to get ready for her nearly nude shoot. Juan Pablo sneaks outside with her and gives her a pep-talk and convinces her everything will be okay.
Overall the photo-shoot was a success, and Juan rewards the girls for their charity with a private hotel party.
Cassandra steals Juan Pablo away for some 1-on-1 time, and decides it is an opportune time to reveal to him that she has a son named Trey. Juan is shocked and excited to hear that she has a two year old son. Cassandra feels “so much better” now that she has shared the news of her son with him. Elise heads up to the roof next to spend some time with Juan. They spend the time talking about their children. Elise really wants her first kiss with Juan Pablo tonight, but it doesn’t happen, despite the obvious hints she dropped about them kissing.
Meanwhile down by the pool, Nikki is trying to convince Victoria to stop drinking. Victoria is rambling about how “Juan Pablo likes to have fun,” so apparently she needs to get wasted so that he thinks she is fun.
Nikki gets some 1-on-1 time with Juan Pablo next. Juan confesses to her that he liked her limo exit with the stethoscope.
Victoria is down in the Jacuzzi by herself, she says “Juan Pablo is her boyfriend.” The girls think Victoria is “desperate,” which is probably why she crashed Nikki’s 1-on-1 time with Juan. She marched in front of them in her bikini, dripping wet, and then storms off and runs to the bathroom. Elisa crawls under the bathroom stall door, and tries to comfort Victoria while she balls her eyes out. She is upset she hasn’t had any 1-on-1 time yet. Elise thinks Victoria is acting “kind of scary.” Victoria marches out of the bathroom and announces she is “going home.” The production crew tries to talk some sense into Victoria, because she is trying to run outside in her bikini without any shoes on. She throws a fit, and runs back into the bathroom. Lucy goes and finds Juan Pablo, and tells him that Victoria is “losing it.” He heads to the bathroom and tries to talk to her through the bathroom door. She refuses to talk to him though, and just sits on the floor and cries. He tells her he will “wait for her outside” and leaves the bathroom.
Juan sits down with the other women and says he “feels bad for Victoria.” Then he hands out a rose to Kelly, and says she was the “best sport today.” Victoria is excited because she doesn’t have to worry tomorrow or pack her bags before the Rose Ceremony. He tells the girls to make sure Victoria gets home safely, and then leaves the hotel.
The next day the girls wake up in the mansion and reveal that Victoria was too drunk to come home. The production crew put her in a hotel room for the night. Juan pays her a visit at the hotel the next day, and Victoria apologizes to him for “setting off the crazy train.” Victoria confesses that she was just “really really upset.” Overall Victoria is really embarrassed and “mortified” by everything that happened the night before. Juan accepts her apologies. But, he reminds her that he is 32 years old and has a daughter, he can’t have someone that can’t “handle herself” around his daughter. He tells her that there is no need to wait for the Rose Ceremony, he wants her to go home now.
The girls are getting prepared for the Rose Ceremony, and are extremely nervous. Juan arrives at the mansion and reveals that he has sent Victoria home. Juan spends some private time with Amy, and she shows off her reporter skills. Amy thinks “there is a good chance she will get a rose tonight.” Sharleen steals Juan away so that she can spend some time with Juan, since she didn’t get to go on any dates with him this week. Sharleen is nervous about how “ungracious” she acted when she received the First Impression Rose on the first night, and she apologizes to him about it. She confesses that she feels “pressure” because she is surrounded by so many beautiful women.
Meanwhile Cassandra is having a meltdown, she misses her son and isn’t sure if being here is worth spending so much time away from her baby. Renee comforts her, she has a child home at soon, and she misses her son as well. Juan rushes upstairs to see why Cassandra is crying. Cassandra tells Juan that she is “questioning whether The Bachelor is worth her leaving Trey [her son].” Juan promises that if he doesn’t see something between them then he will tell her right away because he knows she has a baby to get home to.
It’s time for the Rose Ceremony. Kat, Claire, and Kelly already have roses. He hands out roses to: Cassandra, Nikki, Andi, Elise, Sharleen, Renee, Danielle, Lucy, Alison, Chelsie, Lauren, and Christie.
The following women have been eliminated from The Bachelor: Amy, Chantel, and Victoria (sent home after the hotel fiasco).
