The Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock returns to ABC with another new episode as the crucial hometown dates loom. On last week’s show Desiree flew her eight remaining men to the cultural and romantic hotspot of Barcelona. Did you watch last week’s episode? We did and we recapped it here for you. By the end of the show only five men remained: Brooks, 28, a marketing consultant from Salt Lake City, UT; Chris, 27, a mortgage broker from Seattle, WA; Drew, 27, a digital marketing analyst from Scottsdale, AZ; Michael G., 33, a federal prosecutor from Miami Beach, FL and Zak W., 31, a drilling fluid engineer from Mico, TX.
On this week’s show the drama of Munich and Barcelona is behind Desiree, but she still must determine which four men will have the chance to take her home to meet their families. Madeira, off the coast of Africa, is the perfect location for her to meet up with three of her friends from last season — Catherine, Lesley and Jackie – for some girl time to refocus on the crucial task at hand. Brooks and Desiree enjoy a one-on-one date, but a serious conversation gives her some indication of where their relationship is headed.
Desiree takes Chris to a deserted island for an idyllic day, but he is very nervous about whether to reveal his real feelings for her. An over-the-moon Michael gets his first one-on-one date with the Bachelorette, exploring the city of Funchal. Zak and Drew’s two-on-one date, where the one who gets the rose is assured a hometown date, turns into a real contest between the best in both men. But Desiree makes a confession to Chris Harrison that will turn everything upside down.
Before the rose ceremony, Desiree is filled with emotion. What she reveals to Chris Harrison about her feelings for two men makes her believe she is on the right track to find love. She makes a very difficult decision to send one bachelor home, who declared that he was ready to commit to her forever. The four very happy remaining men will return to the States and introduce Desiree to their families.
