The Bachelorette: Emily's Season-- Let the Games Begin

Emily and the guys spent this week in the picturesque country of Croatia.

The first one on one date of the week went to Travis who revealed to Emily that he was engaged before. She sees Travis as really sweet and a good guy. They spent the day walking around and dancing in the street, yet despite that, Emily doesn't see romance and decides she cannot give Travis a rose.

Ari, Chris, Doug, Jef, John, and Sean go to a screening of Brave with Emily and then learn that they're going to have their own "Highland Games". Emily says that brave is doing your best and being your own man. She chooses Chris as the bravest, even though he lost every challenge because he tried.

After the games:
Sean tells Emily he has strong feelings for her; she tells him to keep his confidence.

Emily tells Ari, she loves being around him. He kisses her in the streets.

Jef gives Emily his jacket. He tells Emily that he feels that things could be really good between them. He says that before he kissed her, he was afraid to kiss her. They kiss and he says, I have a secret, I'm crazy about you. He even reveals to the camera that he is falling in love with Emily.

Emily ends up giving Chris the group date rose and tells him he is one of the kindest, sweetest, most handsome men that she has ever met.

Ryan, much to my chagrin, receives the last one on one date. He keeps referring to Emily as a trophy wife, this is annoying. He is being far too confident and when he gives his list of what he wants in a woman, he sounds totally wrong. Emily says the list makes her feel like she has to be perfect and she doesn't want to feel that way. She says that a family would be the most important thing on her list, and she is surprised with what is important to him. She sees so much in him, but she cannot give him a rose. As he drives off in the limo, he says he hopes that they don't portray him as arrogant (too late for that), but he is.

Ari shows up after Emily's date with Ryan. He reassures her that she made the right decision by sending Ryan home. He said he could marry Emily tomorrow.

Surprise of the night: John carries his grandparents funeral cards. Emily thinks there's more than meets the eye and saves him.

Before the rose ceremony ends, Emily, in a twist, leaves the rose ceremony to ask Chris Harrison if she can send no one home and give out an extra rose. Alas, she gets her wish, and the remaining men (Chris, Sean, Jef, Arie, John, and Doug) head to Prague with Emily.
