Desiree and several of her suitors reflect on the season. Included: footage of the cast crashing fans’ viewer parties; advice from former Bachelorettes on dealing with troublesome guys; viewer questions; bloopers; and a sneak peek at the finale. Also: Desiree faces one of the men she rejected; the bachelors confront some of their controversial competitors.
Desiree visits the Top 4 contenders’ hometowns. One suitor treats her to a snow-cone-truck adventure; another shows his devotion to his family; a third bachelor takes her out for a day of baseball; and another considers his mother’s advice about Desiree. Three suitors remain after the rose ceremony.
The 13 remaining bachelors travel to Atlantic City with Desiree, who tours the boardwalk with one contender, visits Seaside Heights with another, and teams up with Miss America 2013, Mallory Hagan, to put together a “Mr. America” pageant for 11 suitors. Also: One date includes a private concert by Darius Rucker. Eleven bachelors remain after the rose ceremony.
The winner of the first one-on-one date joins Desiree for a day of wedding-theme events, which include a bridal-modeling session, a view of L.A. from the Hollywood sign and a VIP performance from singer-songwriter Andy Grammer. Later, 14 men shoot a rap video with Desiree and Soulja Boy; the group date takes place; and a pushy bachelor is dealt with. At the rose ceremony, the playing field is reduced to 16.
Emily arrives in Curaçao with her three remaining suitors, each of whom will have a chance at an intimate, overnight date in the fantasy suite. Adventures include a helicopter tour of the island, a sail aboard a swanky ship and swimming with dolphins in Fuik Bay. Later, she gives roses to two of the men, who will get the chance to meet Emily’s family, and possibly her daughter, Ricki.
