Week 4 kicks off with a visit from Chris Harrison where we learn that there are two group dates and a one-on-one date that will be decided by Chris’ three sisters. The first group date card is for Megan, Kaitlyn, Ashley S., Ashley I. Juelia, Samantha, Mackenzie, and Kelsey and reads “Let’s do what feels natural…” Chris takes them to hang out at the lake so he can see how they react to being in nature. Some of the girls get really natural and do some skinny dipping (if you read Chris’ blog post he mentions that they were playing Truth or Dare).
Back at the mansion, Chris’ sisters arrive to meet the remaining ladies and decide who gets to go on the one-on-one date. Not surprisingly, Britt tells them that she feels like the frontrunner. Their time with Jade seems to go well so it isn’t surprising that she ultimately gets selected for the date.
Meanwhile, at the lake, Chris reveals that they are going to camp for the night, which doesn’t excite anyone.
The one-on-one date card arrives for Jade and reads “Your presence is requested at a royal ball tomorrow evening from 8 p.m. until the last stroke of midnight. It’s a secret, the prince doesn’t know you are coming.” The date ends up being a complete promo for the Cinderella movie, but this is the traditional Pretty Woman date.
Kaitlyn gets a lot of alone time with Chris on the date and wears a sold-out H&M leather sleeve shirt. This Bungalow 20 Gray Long Sleeve Sweater With Vegan Leather Detail ($49):
Chris also has some time with Ashley S. who is either drunk or looney toons, but that doesn’t stop Chris from letting her kiss him. Ashley I. tries to tell Chris that she’s a virgin, but fails miserably. It’s no wonder that Kaitlyn gets the rose…it was slim pickings on this date.
The girls congregate while Jade gets the royal treatment for her one-on-one princess date. Ashley couldn’t be more upset that she isn’t the one going on this date. She gets her pick of dresses and shoes for this date. She gets a pair of Christian Louboutin Debout Glitter & PVC Red Sole Pumps that she gets to keep! As well as a pair of Neil Lane earrings to take home. Forget the guy…where do I sign up. I found these similar Gianvito Rossi Clear PVC Metallic Foil Suede Pumps ($825) in case you want a pair of your own:
Ashley I. is so distraught over this date that she decides to get dressed up in her own Sherri Hill princess dress ($268).
Chris and Jade have a lovely date and from a Cinderella perspective it was really romantic, especially the way he kissed her at the end of the dance. Whew! That bachelor is smooth! I feel bad for him when he discovers the truth about Jade, I think he will be really surprised. No surprise, Jade gets the rose on this date and is safe for next week.
The next group date card arrives for Nikki, Jillian, Whitney, Carly, Britt and Becca and says “Let’s get dirty.” There are also some gifts that accompany the date card. They turn out to be six beautiful wedding dresses, but they have no idea what they’re doing yet. Unfortunately for them, Chris takes them to MuckFest MS where they are going to get down and dirty. A twist is thrown in…the winner of the race gets to have a one-one-one date later in the evening with Chris.
Shocker…Jillian wins the race and gets the one-on-one. She then proceeds to have the most awkward date ever with Chris. It is so obvious that they have no chemistry. She has no idea what she wants to do with her life. Chris ends the date and sends her home.
On to the rose ceremony the girls are happy that Jillian was sent home, but it sort of hits home that things are getting serious now. Kaitlyn wears the Stella & Dot Rory Necklace ($59):
Ashley I. ends up wearing her Sherri Hill dress again and finally comes out and tells Chris that she is a virgin. Carly has the best line of the night when she says that Ashley’s mouth isn’t a virgin…I spit out my drink at that one, bahahaha. After Ashley spills her secret she is upset when Chris doesn’t kiss her and thinks that he is freaked out. Mackenzie tries to console her and has the cutest Stella & Dot Pave Spear Earrings ($49):
Britt decides to confront Chris about her jealousy and is really manipulative about him giving Kaitlyn multiple roses. Wow – she was super insecure here and questioning his decisions is probably not the best way to build their relationship. Chris had a really awkward response and just left the conversation without kissing her. He lets the women know that if anyone is questioning his decisions they can leave immediately. Of course nobody does leave. At the rose ceremony Ashley S. wore Stella & Dot’s Chantilly Lace Chandelier Earrings ($49):
