Another night of “The Bachelorette” has aired, and Rachel Lindsay is edging closer and closer to finding her dream man in a sea of nightmares. Let’s be honest: this isn’t the greatest group of guys, and in our recent poll, the runaway favorite to win the whole shebang was Peter with 51%. But we’ve still got a ways to go, so below, check out our recap of “The Bachelorette” Episode 5.
First up was a cringe-inducing one-on-one date with Jack Stone (contestants are only required to go by their first name, yet Jack Stone has always remained Jack Stone). Jack, like Rachel, is a lawyer from Dallas, which should make them a perfect match, right? Wrong. Rachel discloses that there’s something missing with this guy, and we soon find out what that is. While shucking oysters and Carolina shagging, Rachel asks what his perfect date with her in Dallas would be? Jack, with his crazy eyes, tells her he’d like to take her home and lock the door. Jack Stone doesn’t make it much further.
In the rose ceremony, Rachel also says goodbye to Iggy and Jonathan, a.k.a. The Tickler. Before leaving, he asks for one last tickling. Yeesh. Interestingly enough, in our recent poll, a whopping 71% of our readers said Lee should have been sent home this week; c’mon, Rachel, what’s the holdup?
Rachel and the remaining 12 contestants head to Oslo, Norway, for a romantic getaway. First up is another one-on-one, this time with Bryan, who opens up by revealing that (gasp!) he used to be skinnier in high school. Rachel discloses that her sister has always been the pretty one, while her she’s been the cool one. Bryan admits he’s falling for Rachel, and gets a date rose.
Next up is the group date, where Rachel and the guys strap on spandex and play a little handball. Will wins and gets the date rose.
Later, Will takes Lee aside and tries to convince him to ease up on calling Kenny aggressive, given the racial undertones of such a descriptive. Lee says Kenny’s the one always playing the race card, while Kenny calls Lee a snake, or a “Lee-zard.”
Inevitably, these two end up on a two-on-one date with Rachel in the Norwegian woods, where the three seek to find clarity. While there, Lee makes some stunning accusations against Kenny to Rachel, alleging that he confessed to him that he has a drinking problem.
We’ll have to wait for tomorrow night’s special episode to find out how Kenny got that bloody face, and which of these two will be sent home.
