Wearing only his black boxer-briefs, Seanwalks into his closet and begins getting dressed. Let another drama-filled episode of TheBachelor begin.One-on-one date: Selma, 29, the real estate developer from San Diego, is whisked away in aprivate plane. She has no idea where they’re going, and she’s dressed in a tank top, leggingsand tennis shoes, so it’s not gonna be fancy.They arrive in the desert and Selma confesses, “I am so disappointed. I do not do well in heat.At all.”It’ll get worse before it gets better, Selma! They hop in a Jeep and go to Joshua Tree National 1/6
  2. 2. Park.“I’m an outdoorsy guy. I love doing anything active,” says Sean. “Today will be a good test tosee if Selma kinda fits that mold.”“I feel puffy,” she says.Then he suggests they do some rock climbing. “Oh my god. Oh my god,” she says, adding, “Ihate heights.”But she gamely straps on her gear and gives it a try, saying she feels sick and prefers six-inchheels. But she manages to beat Sean to the top of the rocks. “You really impressed me today,”says Sean.“I’m sitting on top of the world. Beautiful scenery, beautiful man,” says Selma.Later they have a date at an RV park. They lounge under the stars and toast each other, perfectscenery for smooching. Sean talks about having one serious relationship out of college, but “Iwasn’t in a place in my life where I felt like I could get married.” But, he assures, now he is. Selma says she grew up in a “very, very, conservative, strict home. We’re Arabic, you know.You can’t date and you can’t do this and you can’t do that.” She was born in Baghdad as aMuslim, she explains, confessing to the camera that “to kiss somebody on national television, Ithink my mom would literally have a heart attack!”Meanwhile, Sean’s thinking he wants to kiss her.“I can’t kiss you now,” she whispers. “I want to.”Selma explains that her mom is not happy about her being on the show. She confesses shewants to “feel his lips on mine, but we’ll have to wait until I’m his only lady.”Sean gives her a rose and says, “I’m crazy about you.” He kisses the top of her head.Group date: Lindsay, Robyn, Jackie, Catherine, Amanda, AshLee, Sarah and Tierra are takento the roller rink for a derby date. “This is going to be fun to watch ‘cuz you’re all very sweetgirls,” says Sean, “so this will be interesting.” 2/6
  3. 3. Is Sean falling for Catherine or Robyn?(Photo: Rick Rowell, ABC)They all suit up. Amanda tells the group she has done roller derby bouts before (and she tellsus that’s a big lie). Robyn keeps falling down. Sarah realizes this is a “physical hurdle,” fallsand cries. “At moments like this I just want to be normal.” AshLee tries to give her a pep talkand a hug. Sean tells her she doesn’t have to do it, but she wants to impress him.Next thing we know, Amanda has fallen and bashed her chin. Medics are called and she’s toldit “could be a broken jaw.” She leaves to get it checked at the hospital. Sean then says theywon’t have a competitive roller derby. Instead, it’ll be a free skate party. Everyone breathes asigh of relief, and soon it’s over.“I know today was rough for the girls,” he says later as they all get dressed up and head out fordrinks, something they are all really good at.Tierra, meanwhile, is pouting and vowing to steal time with Sean. ‘I’ve been on three groupdates and I hate it.”But first he takes Sarah aside for some private time.Amanda returns to the group, appearing to be fine, and Sean takes her off for some privatetime. “Don’t make me laugh,” she says to Sean, cuddling with him. “It hurts.” To the cameras,she says, “I’m going to milk the heck out of this. This didn’t happen for nothing.” 3/6
  4. 4. Sean then takes Lindsay away for cuddle time, making Tierra madder and madder. “I’m aboutto walk outta here. I just don’t like the girls, the environment, anything. I don’t trust anyonehere,” she declares. She goes over to a crew member and says, “Can I go? I want to leave.” Meanwhile, Sean’s having a heavy make-out session with Lindsay as Tierra is wailing. “I can’ttake it! I’m breaking down inside!”Sean’s about to hop in a hot tub with a now-bikini-clad Lindsay when Tierra stops him. “I justcan’t do it,” teary Tierra says. “I sit every day wondering how much time I’m going to get withyou … It’s torture, seriously torture. It’s hard seeing you go with other girls… ”Sean flirts with her and they wind up smiling. “I’ll be back,” he says. He grabs the rose, muchto the shock and dismay of the other women. “I honestly see something very special in Tierra,”he confesses. “If Tierra goes home, I’ll always wonder what could have been.”He says to her, “I’m crazy about you.” And gives her a rose. They hug and kiss.“She’s like a plague of bad energy,” grumps Robyn.Sean and Leslie H. on the Jan. 21 episode of ‘The Bachelor.’(Photo: Matt Brown, ABC)One-on-one date: Leslie H. lands a date that comes with diamond earrings. “This is like PrettyWoman. My favorite movie!” she says, marveling at the sparklers when the date card arrives. 4/6

After Sean arrives, he asks if she likes the gems. “Holy moly!” she says. “Do I like ‘em!”They walk out to his convertible sports car. “Oh my god!” she shrieks.They head to Beverly Hills and he says they’re going shopping, just like in Pretty Woman. “Thisis every girl’s dream,” she says.As she and Sean choose a dress, she says, “Winner winner chicken dinner!”They dance a little in one of the boutiques to try out her shoes. “Sean definitely is a young,sexy, blond, blue-eyed Richard Gere,” she says. “And I am a tan Julia Roberts.” The finaltouch: A 120-carat diamond necklace loaned from jeweler Neil Lane. (She gets to keep theearrings.)Now that they’re all dressed up, they need somewhere to go. “Holy moly!” she says again, asthey head to a quiet private dinner.“I want to get to know you,” Sean says. Leslie explains she dated a guy for a long time but theygrew apart and he married the next woman he found. Her parents divorced when she was 5,and she vows that she only plans to get married once.Sean confesses that while Leslie is “gorgeous” and she’s a “joy to be around,” he’s notfeeling the “romantic connection.”To her, he says he “didn’t feel it click today.” He adds, “Leslie, I can’t give you this rose.” Shebites her lip, gets up and leaves. As they walk out, she wishes him luck, gives him the necklaceback and says, “Just watch out for some of the girls. They’re not here for the right reasons. .. Iwant you to find your wife.” It’s never fun to be dumped after a dream date, but she handles itwith class.Ben Taylor, son of James Taylor and Carly Simon, was supposed to give them a privateconcert. He winds up singing just for Sean. “I didn’t know I would feel this bad,” says Sean.Cocktail party: Sean tells AshLee he’s been thinking about her. They kiss happily.A determined Robyn takes a seat with Sean and says, “I’m trying to think which pick up line touse on you tonight.”“Let me hear your best,” he dares her.“Do you like chocolate?” she says, picking up a piece of chocolate. “Do you want a taste ofchocolate? Which chocolate do you want to taste?” He has no problem answering that with akiss. Robyn beams. “I got what I want.”Tierra tells Robyn and Jackie she wishes “everyone would just focus on themselves.” Sheapologizes for her drama to them, then tells the cameras the apology was “fake.” 5/6
  6. 6. She gets some time with Sean and says, “I hate drama, but for some reason girls have a hard time accepting me for who I am.” She tells him, “I just want to focus on me and you.” Sean assures her he won’t be “influenced” by what anyone else says about her. “I can read Tierra,” he tells cameras. “I know she has a good heart and I know she’s here for the right reasons.” Catherine finally gets some time alone with Sean and they clearly have a connection. “I’m so attracted to you,” she says, with a giant grin. “I’m so attracted to you,” he says. “I love being around you. … All you do is giggle… You’re so easy to be around.” She takes him aside so they can hug and kiss. “I really like you. You’re so fun to be around. I’m so comfortable with you,” he says. She says, “I don’t think we ever waste time when we’re together.” They nuzzle and laugh, and she says, “I have such a crush on you.” She tells cameras, “The kiss I had from him was perfect. … I’m so over the moon.” Rose ceremony: Tierra makes one last vow to the cameras, “I’m going to make sure I get that final rose. I’m not going to let any girl stop me from being with Sean.” Tierra and Selma have roses. There are nine more to be handed out: Sean gives them to: Catherine, Desiree, Lindsay, Lesley, Robyn, AshLee, Sarah, Jackie and Daniella. Which means that Amanda and her busted-up jaw must leave. “I feel really rejected and it hurts,” she says. “Heartbreak is such a difficult emotion.” Next week: ABC announced there will be two nights of Bachelor fun — Monday and Tuesday.
