Monday's episode of The Bachelor featured a dreaded 2-on-1 date, some emotional outbursts, a faux dominatrix and the most lopsided date of all time.
The fifth week of the season felt a bit like filler, or at least like its sole goal was to build tensions and feelings for the final few weeks when it really gets good.
That said, there were memorable moments, good and bad. How did it all play out? Who stayed and who left? Let's break it down in THG's classic +/- recap!
Amazing that a NASCAR-themed date was selected.
Shawntel gets the rose on the first solo date, and it's well-earned. The embalmer doesn't get the PR, but she seems very nice and down-to-earth. Plus 9.
Emily Maynard goes on a group date in which they go to a NASCAR track to take laps. Emily's late fiance was a race car driver. Minus 14, Mike Fleiss. Cold.
She handles being jerked around with such grace, though. Plus 10, and Plus 5 more, because Brad seems to empathize and care for her very genuinely.
