Finally have it all together for you now. From Episode 8 on, everything remains the same from when I posted it back on Nov. 24th except one date change in Des Moines. What’s been added has been the dates and eliminations for episodes 5 thru 7. A lot of it I’ve given to you over the past week, but unless I have it neatly in a bow for everyone in the same space, people ask “Where are the spoilers” at an alarming rate. Now that I know for sure who got eliminated last night, it was much easier to piece the rest of the season together, along with information I’ve been given along the way. Episode 6 in South Dakota is the interesting part. I know it starts with 9, I know it ends with 6, and I know the 3 that were eliminated. From there, it just took my brilliant mind to piece it together. We’ve never had a cancelled rose ceremony before. Cocktail parties, yes. Rose ceremonies? No. But looks like we very well may have had that go down in South Dakota. Whatever the case, it should be interesting to see it play out. Enjoy…
Episode 5 (airing Feb. 2nd): Santa Fe, New Mexico (11 to 9)
1-on-1 date: Britt Nilsson. They go on a hot air balloon ride. Britt gets a rose.
Group date: 9 girls (Whitney, Megan, Samantha, Mackenzie, Kelsey, Becca, Ashley I., Kaitlyn, and Jade) go white water rafting along the Rio Grande river. It’s at this group date cocktail party where Jordan comes back having driven 7 hours from her home in Colorado to New Mexico and asks for a second chance. The girls are not thrilled that she returns and Chris ultimately decides not to give her a second chance, so she gets back in her car and drives home.
1-on-1 date: Carly Waddell. They go to a “Love Doctor” that has them doing a bunch of crazy, weird sh** to each other like we saw in the previews. Carly gets a rose.
Rose Ceremony Eliminations: Mackenzie Dionigi & Samantha Steffen.
Episode 6 (airing Feb. 9th): Deadwood, South Dakota (9 to 6)
1-on-1 date: Becca Tilley. They go horse back riding and shoot guns. Becca gets a rose.
Group date: 6 girls (Britt, Whitney, Carly, Megan, Kaitlyn, and Jade) get meet up with Big & Rich all having to write love songs with them. Britt ends up writing the best one getting the group date rose and private concert at the Deadwood Mountain Grand that was spoiled
back on Oct. 22nd. Here’s video of Chris giving Britt the rose in case you hadn’t seen it yet:
2-on-1 date: Ashely Iaconetti & Kelsey Poe. He eliminates both girls on this date.
If you refer back to the Jan. 5th spoilers, I spoiled that Megan leaves in South Dakota before the rose ceremony by eliminating herself. Well, then that means…
Rose Ceremony Eliminations: None. I had heard before the season started that they had to cancel a rose ceremony this season. I never got it double sourced, nor did I know if it was accurate. Could’ve heard it wrong, or maybe someone mixed up rose ceremony with “cocktail party.” Since I didn’t know all the early eliminations, I had no idea if/when a rose ceremony was cancelled. I know 9 girls start this episode and only 6 go to Des Moines next episode. And we know who those 6 are so that means Megan, Ashley I. and Kelsey definitely go home this episode. Assuming that every girl gets a date (which they do at this point) and knowing the first 1-on-1 went to Becca and the 6 girls on the group date were spoiled that day, that means Ashley I. and Kelsey have to have a 2-on-1 and they both have to get eliminated, since giving one a rose would mean they made it Des Moines, which they didn’t. So this looks to be the episode where a rose ceremony is cancelled since the three girls eliminated (Ashley I., Kelsey, and Megan), were all eliminated before the rose ceremony, leaving the remaining 6 women to move on to Des Moines.
Episode 7 (airing Sunday, Feb. 15th): Des Moines, Iowa (6 to 4)
1-on-1 date: Jade Roper. Took to her to his HS alma mater, Starmont HS, football game. This was spoiled back on the night it happened on my Twitter account, then recapped back on Oct. 29th.
1-on-1 date: Whitney Bischoff. Toured around Des Moines all day, then had dinner at Roca, and had a mural painted of them. Also posted back on Oct. 29th
Group date: 3 girls (Britt, Carly, and Kaitlyn) play hockey in the Wells Fargo Arena, home of the Iowa Energy NBDL team, the Iowa Barnstormers of the IFL, and Iowa Wild of the AHL. Seems to me since neither Britt nor Carly make it past this episode, that Kaitlyn gets the group date rose.
1-on-1 date: Becca Tilley. Some of the places they were seen filming were at the Locust Tap, the Continental Hotel, and the Kitchen Collage.
The Jan. 5th spoilers initially said that Britt had the third 1-on-1 in Des Moines. That was inaccurate. Becca did, and Britt was on the group date.
Rose Ceremony Elimination: Carly Waddell. Britt Nilsson already eliminated herself earlier in the episode.
