The Bachelorette kicks off at the mansion – the guys are all waking up the morning after the rose ceremony, and they are miserable because Chad is still living in the house and wasn’t eliminated. Chad and Daniel are BFF’s though, they love working out together and lifting weights. Evan watches Chad eat breakfast and rants that he is a cave man.
Chris Harrison shows up at the mansion, he gathers all of the guys to tell them about the dates. This week there will only be on group date and two 1-on-1 dates. Chris Harrison leaves the first date card and they read it aloud, Chase is going on the first 1-on-1 date. The card teases, “Let’s get physical.” Of course, all of the other guys are feeling a certain type of way because they think they should have gotten the 1-on-1 date.
Chase and Jojo meet up in front of a Yoga studio, their personal trainer Hemalayya greets them and tells them they an “intimate” couples’ session booked. She has them lay down on the floor and teaches them how to have an “Anger Gasm.” Jojo is afraid she is going to scare Chase off, because the exercises are so awkward and embarrassing.
Next Hemalayya teaches them an exercise called “Yab yum.” She has Jojo mount Chase so that their “hearts are aligned.” Jojo jokes that this is the first time she has ever “mounted a guy on the first date.” Although it’s awkward and embarrassing, Jojo is having a good time because she thinks Chase looks amazing without his shirt on. Before their Yoga session is over, they share their first kiss.
After their awkward Yoga date, Jojo and Chase spend the evening having drinks together and getting to know each other. Chase says that he is ready to get married, and he wants to find the right person and only do it once and do it right. At the end of their date, Jojo gives Chase a rose, meaning that he is safe this week. Then, they head outside and dance while Charles Kelly serenades them.
Back at the mansion, the next date card arrives. Jordan, Grant, Wells, James F, Christian, Daniel, Vinny, Nick, Evan, Alex, and Chad are going on the group date with Jojo. Chad grumbles that he doesn’t want to go, Jordan rants that Jojo probably doesn’t want to spend any time with him either. The guys that haven’t gotten a date yet this week are upset that Chad is being ungrateful. Things get super tense – Jordan and Chad start bickering with each other and Chad rants that Jordan is “just a 27 year old failed football player.”
The limos arrive to take the guys on the group date, and everything is still tense between Chad and everyone else. They arrive at a theater where Jojo is waiting for them, and they head inside and sit in the audience. No one has any idea what the show is. A woman takes the stage and starts moaning, after a few awkward moments – she announces she just had an orgasm.
Then, she starts sharing a crazy story about having sex with a frat boy in college, it’s hard to tell what she is really talking about though because nearly all of it is bleeped out. The woman announces that Jojo’s guys are their special guests, and they are all going to take the stage and share their sex stories with the audience.
The guys head backstage to get their sex stories ready. Of course, Chad is upset, he doesn’t want to participate, he thinks that it is dumb and Jojo has no business hearing about his sexual past. Meanwhile, Evan is planning to embarrass Chad when he gets up on stage.
Grant heads up on stage first, he tells a hilarious story about losing his virginity in his park and getting arrested while he was naked. Daniel’s story is bizarre, he talks about how he decided to cut a girls’ hair while they were having sex. Wells shares an interesting story about his first threesome. Then, Evan heads up on stage. He explains that he is in the business of “erectile dysfunction.” He starts talking about guys in the house using steroids, and says that there are certain guys in the house that are irritable, things get awkward really quick when it becomes clear that he is throwing major shade at Chad. When Evan heads back up in the audience he has to walk past Chad and Chad tries to grab him. Chad takes the stage last, and he calls Jojo up on stage with him. He pulls her in and tries to kiss her in front of everyone and Jojo turns her cheek on him and the guys stand up and start cheering and yelling that she burned him.
Chad is furious afterwards, he heads backstage and punches the wall. He pushes Evan and tells him that he is going to die if he doesn’t chill out. Chad’s hands are bloody from punching the wall. He storms off, Jordan laughs that he has “roid rage.” Chad walks past Evan again and pushes him.
After the awkward sex story show, they all sit down to have drinks together. Jordan steals Jojo first, he opens up to her and tells her about his ex-girlfriend. His ex took to Twitter and said that Jordan cheated on her, ironically he left that part out tonight when he was talking to Jojo. When they are done talking they share a kiss, and Jojo thanks him for opening up to her.
Chad tries to interrupt Jojo’s 1-on-1 time with James, but JOjo shuts Chad down and sends him away … which only makes him angrier. Chad sits like two feet away from them, and sits there staring at them and whistling. Jojo grumbles that he is being awkward. Chad heads inside and rants to Vinny that he is sick of Evan following him around and trying to start problems with him. Chad says that he doesn’t start problems with people, but he isn’t going to let Evan keep antagonizing him.
Evan heads inside and starts in on Chad again, he asks him why he is here. Evan demands an apology and tells Chad that he has to buy him a new shirt. Chad rants at Evan to just stay away from him and stop following him around trying to start stuff with him.
Back at the mansion the next date card arrives, James T. is heading on the next 1-on-1 date. The card teases, “Let’s kick it old school.”
Back on the group date, the tension is still unbearable. Chad wanders around outside and finally gets a chance to sit down with Jojo. She wants to know what happened between him and Evan. Chad explains that Evan tried to push him while he was coming back to the audience. Chad complains that Evan has been basically bullying him. Jojo is confused about what is going on, he is so sweet to her, she doesn’t understand what all the drama is about in the house.
Evan interrupts Chad’s time with Jojo. He tries to explain to Jojo that he can’t live with Chad anymore. He puts her on the spot and tells Jojo that he is going to leave the show if she keeps Chad around. Jojo cant believe that he is giving her an ultimatum and tells him that she has to think about it.
It’s time for Jojo to hand out the group date rose, Jojo takes Evan outside and says she needs to talk to him in private before she gives out the rose. Jojo tells Evan that she has loved getting to know him, she gives him the date rose and says she want him to stay. But, she never said that she is going to send Chad home or not like he asked.
They head back inside and the guys are shocked to see that he has the group date rose. Chad announces that this is a joke and interrupts Jojo in the middle of her speech. She snaps back at Chad and tells him to stop being disrespectful.
The next day Jojo picks up James at the mansion in a retro car – they’re dressed like they’re stuck in the 1950’s. Jojo surprises James with a trip to a swing dancing class. They meet their instructor Jean and get to work learning the steps. James has two left feet, and Jojo isn’t much more coordinated. It’s almost painful to watch.
Back at the mansion, Chad thinks it is hilarious that the production has brought in security guards to follow him around because the other guys complained that they think they are in danger and Chad is going to snap and kill them all. He laughs to Daniel that he has “never meant such a bunch of wusses.”
After James and Jojo’s swing dancing class, they head outside and there is a huge group of people in the street swing dancing and playing music. They join in on the fun, Jojo and James are definitely not swing dancing, but Jojo still has a blast. Jojo and James end their date in the park, sitting under the moon, and talking about their past relationships. Jojo talks about getting dumped by Ben Higgins (again). James confesses that he was bullied when he was younger, so his self-esteem is a little low. They cap off the date night with Jojo giving him a rose, then he sings a song for her on his guitar.
It’s the day of the rose ceremony, and the house is still extremely tense because of Chad. The guys ca’t wait until the cocktail party, because they want to tell Jojo all about what Chad has been up to. Chris Harrison arrives at the mansion, he says that he just talked to Jojo and she has decided to skip the cocktail party and instead of the cocktail party, they are going to have an all day pool party with the Bachelorette.
Chris Harrison leaves and Evan follows him outside so that he can talk to Chris Harrison in private. Evan tells Chris that some things have happened in the house and he thinks he should know about it. He tells Chris all about Chad punching the door and ripping his shirt, Evan thinks that Chad is dangerous. Chris Harrison heads back inside and tells Chad that he needs to talk to him in private. Chris lectures Chad about keeping the violence out of the house, Chad insists that he hasn’t started anything, and the other guys are all antagonizing him.
