Hearts are wild, as Ashley gambles hers in sizzling Las Vegas. The dates for this week have the 18 remaining bachelors dreaming of finding true love with the Bachelorette. Once at the mansion, they quickly learn that roses will be at stake on the one group date and on two individual dates with Ashley. However, the competition is revved up when they learn that not all the men will get dates before the next rose ceremony, so the bachelors must take advantage of every opportunity to score points with the Bachelorette. But after careful deliberation, Ashley must eliminate three men, as she tries to make her fairytale come true, on “The Bachelorette,” Monday, May 30 at 8:00 pm ET/PT on the ABC Television Network.
Ashley whisks away her first date – a very surprised William — in a private jet to Las Vegas. But the fun is just starting. Ashley puts her handsome but nervous bachelor to the ultimate commitment test by sending him through a series of wedding preparations. What cake and rings should they chose? But what will happen when they get to the altar? Later that night, she surprises William with a VIP first-ever dinner in the middle of the renowned Bellagio Lake. As eager fans look on, Ashley and her date bond over their similar pasts. And as the couple share the season’s first kiss, the mesmerizing Fountains of Bellagio water show dances across the night sky.
The next day, 12 hot guys head to Las Vegas to join Ashley at the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino, where the group meets the Jabbawockeez, the celebrated hip hop dance troupe. The men are thrilled by the special performance the dancers have staged for them, but their excitement turns to panic when they discover that they’ll be doing some dancing of their own. Teams of six men each will conceive, rehearse and perform a routine for Ashley and the Jabbawockeez. The winning team will spend the night in Las Vegas, performing on stage with the famed dancers before a sold-out audience. The losers are immediately banished to Los Angeles. Which men will raise their game and dance into Ashley’s heart?
Later that night at the after party, West sensitively shares the heartbreaking story of the death of his wife with Ashley, while Bentley — who just seems to relish the competition — toys with the Bachelorette’s heart. But will Ashley see beyond his sweet talking prowess, or will this shady bachelor weasel his way to capture another coveted rose?
Back in Los Angeles in another game of chance, J.P. and Mickey flip a coin to see who will join Ashley in Las Vegas for the final date. Ashley and her man of the day repeatedly flip a coin to decide the course of their day together. After a leisurely afternoon and a visit to a beautiful aquarium, the couple enjoy a romantic dinner and a special private concert by hit singer/song-writer Colbie Caillat. But will Ashley let a flip of a coin decide her date’s fate, or will she realize there is more to this sexy bachelor than his good looks?
At a pressure-packed cocktail party, the drama escalates: One man finally makes his move and kisses Ashley, Jeff, the masked man, vows to finally reveal himself, and Bentley, ever the sly competitor, literally sweeps her off her feet.
At the end of the night, 15 men remain to battle for Ashley’s heart.
