Following last week’s debacle where the men were shocked that JoJo saved Chad, the pressure was seriously on — but could Chad behave?
Chris Harrison reveals that there will be two group dates and a one-on-one date this week, with the first going to Chase, who didn’t have alone time with JoJo at all last week. The date is at a yoga studio, and things get all kinds of sexual as JoJo and Chase are forced to get into a bunch of different “intimate” positions.
Even though JoJo admits it’s “awkward,” the chemistry between her and Chase is undeniable and they even share a steamy kiss right in the middle of the studio while she’s straddling him! The connection deepens between them later that evening, and the subject of marriage even comes up. JoJo is clearly feeling the relationship, and gives Chase a rose, ensuring that he’ll stick around another week. The night ends with a slow dance while Charles Kelley serenades the pair — talk about romantic!
Jordan, Grant, Wells, James F., Christian, Ali, Daniel, Vinny, Nick, Evan, Alex and Chad are chosen for the night’s group date, and Chad continues to piss people off by saying he doesn’t “even wanna go.” Instead, he’d rather wait until the cocktail hour, when he can snag JoJo for one-on-one time. The guys who didn’t get picked for the date are especially livid, and the claws come out between Chad and Jordan, then Alex, and it’s super intense.
Chad ends up sucking it up and going on the date, but the other guys aren’t happy about it, and discuss ways to bring out Chad’s true colors in front of JoJo. For the date, they attend a sex talk show…and the guys find out they’re going to have to tell their own tales about sex! Obviously, Chad’s not into it — he doesn’t want to know about JoJo’s sexual past, and doesn’t think it’s her or anyone else’s business to know about his. SERIOUSLY!?
The guys hold nothing back when they tell their stories, and it’s totally hilarious. But things get intense when Evan takes his turn on stage, and subtly calls out muscleman Chad, implying he takes steroids. The two have a brief altercation as Evan makes his way back to the crowd, then Chad uses his turn to try and make-out with JoJo (DENIED!), rather than telling a story from his past. AMAZING!
Obviously, Chad is LIVID: He punches a door and shoves Evan backstage (twice) after the sex show. It’s obvious JoJo is beginning to see what kind of guy Chad really is, especially when he starts interrupting her one-on-one time with the other guys later that night. Then, things intensify between him and Evan again, when Evan calls Chad out for ripping his shirt earlier, and the guys have a major showdown of words.
When JoJo finally gets one-on-one time with Chad, she brings up the altercation with Evan, and clearly seems a little put-off by his behavior. “I see so many different sides of you,” she admits. “I hear different things, but then I remember the conversations we’ve had…and they’re nice.”
Evan tells JoJo he won’t stay on the show anymore unless Chad goes home, and she’s totally torn over what to do because there’s things she likes about them both. JoJo explains to Evan that she just can’t decide between them right now, but begs him to stay anyway by offering him the date rose. He decides to forego the ultimatum and take the rose — and so the drama shall continue.
Chad freaks out and questions JoJo: “You’re actually vibing this dude right now?” She fires right back at him, though, calling him disrespectful and telling him she doesn’t like this “side” of him right in front of everyone. Yeah, girl! The rest of the guys are not okay with Chad’s aggressive behavior and even ask for a security guard to watch over him — yikes!
James T. gets the next solo date, and he and JoJo go “back in time” for a sweet swing dancing session. JoJo has SO much fun with James, as they gain trust in one another and begin connecting on a deeper level throughout the day. She wants things to get more romantic between them, though, and it clearly goes just as planned that night after an intimate conversation, because JoJo gives James the third rose of the episode!
Chris informs the guys that there will be no cocktail party this week; instead, they’ll be having a day-long pool party. Before the fun gets started, though, Evan pulls the host aside and explains what’s been going on with Chad in the house, revealing that the guys feel unsafe with him around. Chris addresses Chad about the situation, and Chad obviously goes on the defensive, putting the blame on Evan and the other dudes instead.
Chris gives Chad a chance to settle things in the house, rather than being sent home, and the episode ends on a total cliffhanger, as Chad makes his way back into the room full of his competitors. OMG!
Check back tomorrow to see what happens next!
