Episode 2: Los Angeles, CA (19 to 16)
1-on-1 date: Sarah Herron. Was picked up by a helicopter at the mansion, flown to downtown, and rapelled down WaterMarke Tower in LA. You can read more about this date which I wrote about on Sept. 27th, as well as see a picture from someone who was across the street when it happened.
Group date: 13 girls go to a fashion photo shoot where they acted out scenes from romance novels. The 13 girls are: Tierra, Selma, Katie, Robyn, Catherine, Amanda, Lesley M., Kacie, Brooke, Kristy, Daniella, Taryn, and Diana. The winner gets a cover deal for Harlequin romance novels. Kristy, who is already a Ford model, wins the the cover deal. At the cocktail party, Katie Levans leaves the show because she’s not into it. Kacie gets the rose. I know. Confusing. Quick recap: Kristy Kaminski wins the cover deal for the romance novels during the date, Kacie Boguskie gets the rose at the cocktail party, and Katie Levans leaves early. Got it?
1-on-1 date: Desiree Hartsock. Taken to an art gallery opening where he plays a practical joke on her. Sean actually leaves a room, a piece of expensive art work breaks, and the store wants to blame it on Desiree. Hijinx and hilarity ensues. Or not. Anyway, the 2nd part of their date they go back to Sean’s mansion, and Desiree gets a rose.
Girls who didn’t get a date: Lindsay Yenter, Jackie Parr, AshLee Frazier, and Leslie Hughes
Rose Ceremony Eliminations: Diana Willardson and Brooke Burchette. Katie Levans left during the group date cocktail party.
Episode 3: Los Angeles, CA (16 to 13)
1-on-1 date: Lesley Murphy. The go to the Guinness World Record Attraction on Hollywood Blvd and set the record for longest on screen kiss. I wrote about this back when it happened, as many fans were outside witnessing this. Later on, Sean and Lesley make out which is shown in the first promo of the season.
Group date: Malibu Beach. 12 girls playing a volleyball game, with the winning team getting a 2nd portion to the evening. The winning team was: Kacie, Jackie, Desiree, Lindsay, Amanda, Robyn. The losing team: Leslie, Kristy, Taryn, Daniella, Tierra, Catherine. Lindsay got the rose on this date.
On the morning of the next 1-on-1, Tierra falls down the stairs at the mansion and has to be taken to the hospital. This is who you see in the promos being taken out on a stretcher.
1-on-1 date: AshLee Frazier. Sean takes her to Magic Mountain where they spend the day with two chronically ill teenagers and watch a performance by the Eli Young Band. AshLee gets a rose.
Girls who didn’t get a date: Sarah Herron and Selma Alameri
Right before Sean starts handing out roses, he asks to talk to Kacie Boguskie away from the group and sends her home. Not sure the reason, but I’m guessing it has to do with just seeing her as just a friend.
Rose Ceremony Eliminations: Kristy Kaminski and Taryn Daniels. Kacie eliminated right before rose ceremony began.
Episode 4: Los Angeles, CA (13 to 11)
1-on-1 date: Selma Alameri. Sean takes her on a private jet to Joshua tree and to do some rock climbing. Ummmm, needless to say, she gets a rose.
Group date: 8 women compete in roller derby. Didn’t quite get the names of everyone on this date, but I do know during the roller derby, Amanda Meyer injuries her jaw pretty bad and is taken to the hospital. I don’t think Sean gave a rose out on this group date because of the injury to Amanda, but he might’ve. Not 100% sure.
1-on-1 date: Leslie Hughes. Sean takes her on a Rodeo Drive shopping spree, they meet Neil Lane, and then attend a private VIP concert by Ben Taylor. Sean does not give Leslie a rose at the end of the night, and she’s sent home.
Rose Ceremony Eliminations: Amanda Meyer. Leslie Hughes sent home during her date.
