One-on-one:Shawntel Newton — mortician girl! — goes with Brad to the fashion mall at Aria, then they take a helicopter tour of Las Vegas. They have a rooftop dinner and see a fireworks show. Six Feet Undergirl gets a rose. At this point, the two Ashleys, Lisa, and Marissa pull a Kasey Kahl and get small rose tattoos. (The press release doesn’t mention this, but we hope they at least hint at it on the show.)
Group Date:This is the NASCAR time trials date, so of course Emily is going to be the star. Lisa wins the time trials, but Brad worries about Emily the whole date and ends up giving her the rose. Poor Lisa. Afterward, they return to Aria for the umpteenth pool party of the season.
Two-on-one: The dreaded two-on-one date claims an Ashley! Both of them — Hebert and Spivey — are supposedly really good friends in the house. Along with Brad, the two girls rehearse with dancers in the Cirque de Soleil show Viva Elvis to see which one will join Brad in the actual show. At dinner he decides to eliminate Ashley S. After dinner, he and Ashley H. appear in the show. Harsh!
Who goes home? Three women are eliminated: Ashley Spivey from the 2-on-1, plus Marissa May and Lisa Morrisey. Note to all Bachelor/Bachelorettehopefuls: Don’t get a tattoo while you’re on the show.
