Tonight’s episode of The Bachelorette picks up where we left off last – Jojo went on a 2-on-1 date with Alex and Chad. She gave the rose to Alex and eliminated Chad. When word gets back to the house that Chad has been eliminated, the guys all celebrate. Little do they know, Chad is hiking back to the house to confront them.
Chad arrives at the house and knocks on the door – the guys are shocked to see him outside. Someone lets him inside – and its awkward…to say the least. Chad explains that Alex threw him under the bus and told Jojo that he was threatening the other guys, so Jojo eliminated him. Jordan takes the high road and tries to make amends with Chad before he goes. Chad doesn’t want to hear it – he says that all of the guys were constantly attacking him, and they backed him in to a corner.
Jordan tries to shake his hand, and Chad squeezes it extra hard. Jordan laughs it off and says that he has no problem with Chad. Evan wants Chad to pay him for the shirt that he ripped – Chad mocks him and asks him if he is “really that broke,” then he storms out.
It’s time for the next rose ceremony – Jojo gets dressed and heads to the house where the guys are staying. She gives them a speech about how disappointed she was by Chad, she hopes that no one else will act the way that he has and she is serious about finding love.
Chase steals Jojo for some alone time first – he surprises her with some huge inflatable balls that they used at the NFL training camp. They goof around outside and its obvious that Chase has a pretty strong connection with him. Robby sneaks outside for a makeout session with The Bachelorette next. Everybody watches from inside as Robby kisses Jojo, and tensions are now running high.
James F is trying to read Jojo a poem that he wrote her and Alex interrupts. James isn’t impressed, he says that the gentleman code has definitely gone out the window. Everyone thought that it would be smooth sailing after Chad left – but the testosterone is still flying high. Daniel is not happy too, because Luke interrupted his time with Jojo.
Its time for Jojo to pass out roses, Luke, Jordan, and Alex have roses – so they are already safe. Jojo passes out roses to Derek, Robby, Chase, Wells, Grant, Vinnie, James T, and Evan. James S. and Daniel are officially eliminated – they say their goodbyes and head home. After the rose ceremony, Jojo announces that they are going to South America and hitting Uruguay next.
The guys arrive at the hotel in Uruguay, and the first date card is waiting for them. Alex reads it aloud, it’s for Jordan. The card reads, “Jordan, let’s seal the date.” The other guys watch with envy as Jordan heads off to his date. Well grumbles that Jordan is already a frontrunner, and he hasn’t even had a 1-on-1 yet. Chase thinks that Jordan is not trustworthy, and he is on the show for all of the wrong reasons.
Jordan meets up with Jojo and they head out on a boat on the ocean. They gear up in wetsuits and head in the water together to swim with the seals.
Back at the house, the guys find a copy of a tabloid about Jojo. The copy of In Touch Magazine is all about her ex-boyfriend Chad. He told all about their relationship and said that they were still together while she was on The Bachelor. Obviously, the guys are upset, they think that JOjo might still have feelings for her ex.
The next date card arrives, luke, derek, Chase, Evan, James, Vinnie, Wells, and Alex are going on the next group date.
Meanwhile, Jojo and Jordan are still on their group date. Jojo reveals that she knows Jordan’s ex-girlfriend, and she heard that he was a player and a cheater. Jordan confesses that he wasn’t the greatest boyfriend, but insists he wasn’t a cheater, but he did flirt a lot. Jordan confesses that he wasn’t really ready to settle down. Jojo is satisfied with his answer and gives him the date rose. She thinks this is the beginning of an amazing love story.
Jojo gets back from her date – the producers tell her that the guys got their hands on a tabloid about her and her ex Chad. She reads the magazine and starts crying, she says that her ex is trying to ruin her life and doesn’t want her to be happy.
Jojo heads to the guys’ room with the magazine – she breaks down in tears and cries about how horrible her relationship was with him. She doesn’t want any of the guys to be worried about her ex Chad, Jojo reassures them that she has moved on and they have nothing to worry about.
The next day, Jojo meets up with the guys for their group dates – they head out to a cliff to go sand surfing. It’s apparently much more difficult than it looks – and they are a hot mess. It starts raining and they rush to take cover. Back at the hotel, the last date card arrives – Robby is going on a 1-on-1 date.
Back on the group date, Jojo and the guys head back to the hotel for drinks. Luke scores some alone time with The Bachelorette first, he reassures her that the tabloid didn’t phase him and he knew it was all lies. Derek sits down with Jojo and confesses that it upsets him a little to see her with the other guys, and he is having a little bit of trouble with jealousy. He insists that he isn’t going to pull back from her though. At the end of the date, Jojo hands out the date rose to Derek.
The next day, Jojo and Robby head out on their first date together. After an afternoon of cliff diving together, they have a romantic dinner. Robby opens up to JOjo and confesses that his best friend passed away in a car accident, and ever since then he has vowed to take risks and follow his heart – because life is too short. Then, Robby tells Jojo that he has fallen in love with her. She doesn’t say it back, but she does give him the date rose.
Back at the house, Alex has found a new person to harass now that Chad is gone … Derek. He corners Derek and wants to know why Jojo gave him the rose just to reassure him. He thinks that Derek is being insecure. Derek calls out Alex, Jordan, and Chase and asks them to step outside with him. He accuses them of bullying him and acting like they are in a high-school clicque. Things get awkward, Alex snaps at Derek and says that he is just trying to distract them before the rose ceremony.
Chris Harrison arrives, he says that Jojo has decided to cancel the cocktail party and they are going straight to the rose ceremony – three people will be going home tonight. Jordan, Derek, and Robby all have roses, so they are safe tonight. Jojo passes out roses to Luke, Chase, Alex, James, and Wells. That means that Evan, Vinnie, and Grant are officially eliminated.
