Right when the champagne drama was finishing, fresh drama comes up. In this episode we start with Hannah Ann and Kelsey crying with the other ladies of the house. Hannah Ann said “I would never do that to someone,” she sobs to Alexa. “Why would I steal champagne?” Alexa and the rest of the women look like they’re sick to death of hearing Kelsey and Hannah Ann whimper about their fizzy feud. “I’m sure Peter is exhausted from dealing with this thing for two days,” notes Alayah.
While this is happening downstairs, Victoria F is getting ready for her one-on-one date with Peter. The Bachelor picks her up in a vintage truck. They drive through Peter’s hometown and stop at a cowboy store to pick some boots a cowboy hat for Victoria F. . Peter shows her how to line dance, they leave the shop and go to a bar to dance.
While back in the house Kelsey and Hannah Ann talk by the poolside. Kelsey tell Hannah Ann, “Using unkind words to you, I apologize for that but that is not bullying.”Kelsey claims the whole thing wasn’t actually about the champagne “I don’t even like champagne!”,“You don’t know me,” says Hannah Ann. “So why call me fake?” Kelsey and Hannah Ann go back and forth and Kelsey just leaves and walks away because they aren't getting anywhere.
Kelsey and Peter have dinner in an airplane hangar, Victoria F. opens up to Peter about how her life was really hard growing up without a dad and a mom becoming a drug addict after her dad died. Kelsey said,“My dad passed away when I was really young, and after that, my mom… kinda fell into addiction, we were in and out of shelters growing up.” Victoria’s story is pretty upsetting, with her mother struggling and her dad gone, she had to be a caretaker for her little sister at a very young age. “I would literally, like, peel a potato and cut it in half and put salt and pepper on it, I'd make sure my sister was, like, taken care of.” Peter then said, “You deserve it all, this shows me what kind of person you are.” Peter goes ahead and gave Victoria P. the date rose.
Back in the mansion Sydney thinks that Alayah is being fake and isn’t here for Peter. Sydney says, “With Alayah, I can tell something’s off about that girl, she is just all fake.” Early next morning, all of the women on the group date Kiarra, Sarah, Tammy, Kelley, Shiann, Savannah, Sydney, and Alayah get a literal rude awakening.That muscular woman in the tube socks and tank top is there on behalf of former Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise contestant Demi Burnett. “Wake up you maggots! Rise and shine!” bellows Demi, who then orders. The women downstairs for their group date instructions. Demi leaves some pj’s that the girls going to the date have to wear.
On the date, the girls had a pillow fight. The winner would be crowned, now in the house Alayah and Sydney don’t get along and in the pillow fight they go against each other and Alayah wins and Sydney is mad because she thinks she doesn’t deserve it.
During the cocktail party Sydney confronts Alayah and says, “You sound so rehearsed,” Sydney continues, “and so, like,on… But if you come in here worrying about how you’re perceived, then you’re not going to be your real self to Peter. And, like, that’s what he’s here to find, like a real person.” Alayah didn’t care what Sydeny said, she just rolled her eyes and didn’t say anything to her. Sydney then talked to Peter and tell her about Alayah, “When the cameras show up and the lights are on, and there’s that time for some camera time, like, it’s like a whole different person… I just, like, don’t want you to get blinded by that.” This sent Peter into questioning if she here for the right thing. When Peter got back to the ladies, and tells them “ If you aren’t real with me and you’re a different person when you’re off camera, then you aren’t here for the same thing as I am.” At the end of the group date Sydney gets the rose for being so real with Peter.
The next day, Chris Harrison arrives and adds to the tension by informing the women that Peter will be coming over to hang with them at the pool and after that, they’ll go straight to a rose ceremony. Peter arrive say, “ I’m not really feeling my best, I unfortunately, I guess, kinda feel a little bit of doubt creeping in with all this.”
Before the party commences, Peter pulled Sydney aside. The Bachelor apologizes to her for putting her on the spot on the group date, and she forgives him. Peter grabs ladies one by one and ask them about Alayah. Kelsey told him “while Alayah is a “great” person, she also “acts a certain way when the camera’s on.” Natasha informs Peter that “Sydney was not wrong” about Alayah, while Lexi notes that, “Alayah is one of those people who “kind of turn it on a little bit for the cameras.” When Alayah tried to hash things out with Sydney a second time, it does not go well. They went back and forth and don’t get to a point. Peter is now worry of all the things the girls have said about Alayah and leaves and most of the ladies are worried because half of them haven’t had time to talk to him and they could be sent home.
When the rose ceremony came and starts calling out names. He came to his two roses and his breaking point. Should he give Alayah a rose or should he listen to his gut. Rather than make a decision on his own, he leaves the room to consult with Chris Harrison.Peter returns to the Rose Room… followed by Harrison, who snatches one of the remaining roses from the table. “There’s been a little bit of a change tonight,” he announces. “This is now the final rose tonight.” And it goes to… Mykenna! Alayah left and the girls were happy because the drama was leaving but little did they know. In the next episode, the girls leave to Cleveland, Ohio. Kelsey and Victoria F. get the one-on-one date and Alayah comes back.
