The Bacelorette Emily's Season: Bermuda Triangles

This week Emily's journey takes her to Bermuda. 

The show opens with single dad Doug getting the first one on one date of the week with Emily. He acts really nervous about the date and the guys kind of push his buttons which is really easy for them to do. The date finally arrives and they go shopping in Bermuda; the amazing thing here is that these two both have a child, but the similarities stop there. They have nothing in common other than that, and their chemistry is nonexistent. Emily begins thinking on this date that maybe Doug may be "too perfect" (good inclination Emily, your instincts are right on). Despite the fact that they seem to struggle through the date, Emily does give Doug a rose.

The guys race in sailboats for more time with Emily. The losing team is Chris, Charlie, Travis, and Sean, and the winning team is Ryan, Jef, Arie, and Kalon. Emily and Arie spend their one on one time discussing the flack he caught in the house after he consoled Emily at the last cocktail party. He says he wants to spend more time hanging out with her and they share a kiss.

Emily's one on one time with Jef goes really well because she sees for the first time that he is really interested in her. She had hoped he would kiss her on the beach, but he said he was trying to be respectful of Emily.

Emily begins to question Ryan's motives as well as some of the odd comments that have come out of his mouth. Ultimately, Ryan loses out as Jef receives the group date rose.

Meanwhile, the guys back at the house get into a discussion about how age isn't what makes you mature, it's your experiences and who you are as an individual.

Ahhh yes, the two on one date; how terrible! Nate is sweet, innocent, and perhaps a little bit too much. He sees in his parents what he wants for himself. John is older, has a quiet confidence, and doesn't need to be the center of attention like some of the other guys in the house.

Emily ends up choosing John to move forward and Nate is sent home.

At the cocktail party, Arie makes it clear that he is not a fan of Ryan, and does not feel he is there for Emily. Ryan says he is a "good catch" and is not worried about Arie. He is already petitioning to be the next Bachelor.

Moving forward: Doug, Jef, John, Sean, Arie, Travis, Chris, Ryan, Kalon, and Alejandro.

Going home: Nate, Michael, and Charlie
