Episode 6 of The Bachelor opens with Juan Pablo and the remaining eight bachelorettes arriving in Lake Taupa, New Zealand, and checking into the lodge. Cassandra feels selfish checking into the resort, because she misses her son back home. Clare thinks New Zealand is a beautiful place, but after what happened in Vietnam she feels like there is a dark cloud over her trip.
The first date card arrives, and it is for Andi, it says “let’s heat things up.” Andi is ecstatic, she is the only remaining bachelorette that hasn’t had a 1-on-1 date with Juan Pablo. Andi gets ready for her date with Juan Pablo.
Andi and Juan Pablo meet up, and Juan Pablo leads Andi down to a river jet. They hop in and the driver starts speeding down the river. It begins raining, and the driver pulls over. He tells Andi it is time to get out of the boat. Andi and Juan Pablo wade through the river and begin wading through a narrow cave. Andi is scared because the water is freezing and they can barely fit through the tunnel. They finally get through the end of the tunnel, and Juan Pablo leads Andi through a jungle and into a natural hot springs waterfall. Juan Pablo and Andi stand under the hot springs waterfall and make out…for a really long time.
Once their hot springs date is over, Juan Pablo surprises her with a romantic dinner date next to the geyser. Andi thinks New Zealand is like a “fantasy land.”
Back at the resort the bachelorettes receive another date card. Sharleen, Chelsie, Renee, Nikki, Kat, and Cassandra are invited on a group date. Clare is ecstatic, since she isn’t going on the group date, then that means she will have a 1-on-1 date with Juan Pablo in New Zealand.
Back at the geyser, Andi and Juan Pablo have abandoned their dinner date because one of the geysers erupted and soaked their food. After the date Juan Pablo surprises Andi with the date rose, and guarantees she will be around for another week.
The next day, the six bachelorettes that were chosen for the New Zealand group date pile into a car and head out to the middle of a windy field to meet up with Juan Pablo. It’s also Cassandra’s 22nd birthday. Juan Pablo surprises the women with a picnic in the middle of the field. After their picnic Juan Pablo leads the six bachelorettes down a hill, to a “Zorb” course. (Zorbing is when you climb into a huge rubber ball, and then roll down a steep hill.)
After their group date Juan Pablo takes Cassandra aside. Juan Pablo thinks that there isn’t a definite connection between them, so he decides to send her home. He doesn’t think it is fair to make her wait two days until the Rose Ceremony and miss out on time with her son. Cassandra has been officially eliminated from The Bachelor.
The next day Juan Pablo and Clare head out on their 1-on-1 date, he takes her to a New Zealand beach. They discuss what happened in Vietnam, Juan Pablo confesses that he was mad at himself for making Clare cry last week. They talked through their differences, and Juan Pablo apologized for upsetting her in Vietnam.
After Juan Pablo and Clare’s trip to the beach, Juan Pablo surprises her with a romantic dinner back at the resort. Juan Pablo asks Clare if he is “melting her heart.” Clare confesses that he has been “melting her heart.” Clare says that she likes “comfy dates.” So, Juan Pablo gives her a pair of sweat pants to wear while they relax on the couch. After Clare puts on her sweatpants, which look an awful lot like Hammer pants, Juan Pablo awards her with a rose.
The next day Juan Pablo arrives at the resort for the New Zealand cocktail party. Chris Harrison meets up with him before the party, to discuss the upcoming Rose Ceremony. Juan Pablo confesses that he is torn between all of the women. He let Cassandra go though, because his chemistry with the other girls was “bigger.”
The seven bachelorettes arrive at the cocktail party, and are greeted by Juan Pablo. Juan Pablo takes Nikki aside for some alone time, and she confesses that she is nervous that she doesn’t have a rose. Nikki turns on all the charm during her alone time with Juan Pablo to ensure that she receives a rose at the Rose Ceremony. Renee sneaks off for some alone time with Juan Pablo next, she is nervous now that she is the only single Mom left in the house, since Cassandra left. After some quality time with Chelsie and Kat, it is time for Juan Pablo to hand out the roses. Chelsie is sure that she is safe, and she thinks Kat may be the one to go home tonight.
It’s time for the Rose Ceremony (Cassandra was already eliminated earlier in the episode). Sharleen, Andi, and Clare already have roses from their dates, so they are in the clear tonight. Juan Pablo passes out roses to Nikki, Renee, and Chelsie.
Kat Hurd has been eliminated from Season 18 of The Bachelor.
