It's finally time for last week's rose ceremony, and guess who gets sent home? The only one who has had absolutely no on-camera time and no alone time with Ben??? Yes, that's Jennifer. I feel like she is actually kind of awesome, but apparently Ben is just not trying to keep around any brunettes. Why bother even getting to know you if you aren't blonde?? Or at least fake blonde. Watch out, Caila, you're next.
Well at least Ben and the girls are off to... the Bahamas! Which according to Amanda is the most romantic place they've been yet. Between L.A, Las Vegas, and the Bahamas...? Yeah, good call. So the first date card arrives and we all expect Leah because she is beautiful and hasn't had any quality time yet. But the one-on-one date goes to... Caila. Who has already had a one-on-one. This is actually kind of ridiculous. Don't you see the color of her hair??? Apparently the fact that their first date was a foursome with Kevin Hart and Ice Cube means that it didn't really count...... and they have unfinished business, and they are going to need to go fly fishing to figure out their relationship. Meanwhile, Leah shows us that she is one of the most practical contestants ever by realizing that she is done and might as well go home. I mean, she's right- week 6 and you haven't had any alone time? Yes, if he doesn't pick you this week, you are done. It's unfortunate because she is very pretty and seems cool, but she's right- if she stays, she will look like a fool, and is probably better off leaving on her own terms. Hope to see you on Bachelor in Paradise, Leah! I think you would do well there.

Next up, we have the group date, involving some bikini-clad women heading into shark infested waters. Or actually.. pig infested waters..? Apparently there is a beach in the Bahamas where pigs go swimming along the shore, and you feed them hot dogs as they chase you around squealing. This. Is. Weird. If things weren't already awkward enough, Ben decides he is feeling awkward and starts acting super weird around everyone. Wait, you mean dating 6 girls at the same place at the same time is uncomfortable? Crazy. Literally every conversation on this beach is excruciating, and they don't even have alcohol! That's the only thing getting ME through this. Maybe things will get better once the pigs are gone...?
So Leah is in full on desperation mode as she decides to head over to Ben's place to further destroy Lauren B. What are you doing?!? At least target someone who deserves it like Olivia! Or maybe even try to seduce him to make yourself look better. We've seen this strategy before and it is almost never successful. You know what HAS been proven successful? Sex in the ocean. Might wanna change your approach... Shockingly enough, spending your time talking crap about the frontrunner instead of making your own connection DOESN'T work, and it backfires so much that Leah gets sent home right then and there!!! Oh Leah, why didn't you just take him down to the ocean..?
Just when we thought there was no way this episode would end on time... it appears that Ben has cancelled the cocktail party and one of these women is going home without a chance to say anything more! I can't believe he is sending THREE home tonight- that is unexpected. Moving right along I guess... All my favorites (Lauren B & JoJo) are totally convinced they are done for, but come on, you are clearly safe. With Caila, Amanda, and Emily already having roses, the rest of the roses go to... Becca (ugh), JoJo (yay!), and Lauren B (we were supposed to be shocked but we aren't). That means Lauren H (the face) is heading home this week and I am not too sad about it. He can do way better than her.
So at the end of this week, all the girls left are actually pretty sweet, good girls, and I am not sure where he will be going from here. From previews it appears that some CRAZY SHIT is going down in the next few weeks, including Ben legit falling in love with 2 women and wanting to propose to them both. I can hardly wait to see how things end up... More to come next week!
