You don’t need The Bachelorette spoilers to tell you that one week before hometown dates means decision time for Becca Kufrin.
Who will be moving on to hometowns with the brunette beauty, and who will just be going home and going to town on themselves?
Tonight’s installment of the long-running reality series, Season 14, Episode 7, is basically the point in which it’s worth it to start tuning in.
Even fiendish Bachelorette spoilers junkies who are reasonably sure of this summer’s outcome will see drama, twists and turns galore.
This evening will see three one-on-one dates, the elimination of two contestants, one lucky group of four guys and zero rose ceremonies.
Got all that? Bachelorette spoilers below …
Colton Underwood will get the first date.
In the Bahamas, they will sail away on a catamaran before enjoying a romantic dinner, during which he lays it all on the line.
According to ABC’s synopsis, “Colton finally feels comfortable enough to share a secret … one that he has been worried will scare her off.”
“Will this revelation derail their relationship,” the network teaser cryptically asks, “or bring them closer together?”
Spoiler alert …
He’s getting a rose.
And the secret he’s been waiting to reveal is most likely his virginal status, and/or the fact that he was hollering at Tia Booth online.
We never quite got an adequate resolution to that. Anyway, the second one-on-one date will go to Garrett Yrigoyen. Private island style.
It’s Garrett’s private life that’s in question, however, particularly about his failed and allegedly abusive marriage as hinted at earlier.
As you probably know, Garrett Yrigoyen has been in the hot seat already this season thanks to his … suspect social media history.
Things aren’t getting easier for him, and the scrutiny will likely increase with time, though Becca seems more and more into him.
Stay tuned there.
Finally, Becca and Blake ride horses on the beach and take in a concert courtesy of the Baha Men, who were last seen circa 2002.
Good to see those guys are still around. Will Blake be around after this week, when he “reveals to Becca his true feelings for her”?
He will. He pulls through in the end.
We have it on good authority that whatever tension might exist, Colton, Garrett, and Blake will all move on to the hometown dates.
Not a huge surprise there.
That leaves Jason, Leo and Wills on a group date, during which only one will survive. The lucky fourth hometown date recipient?
Becca’s tension-diffusing volleyball date will conclude with “two utterly heartbroken” suitors, according to the ABC official synopsis.
At the end of the evening, there will be no rose ceremony, but plenty of tears from Leo and Wills as they pack their bags for good.
Next week: Hometown dates, and plenty more controversy surrounding Colton and Garrett as the stakes are only getting higher.
