The Bachelorette

Bachelorette 2012 Spoilers: Emily Maynard and Arie Luyendyk, Jr.’s “Steamy” Date! What to Expect in Episode 3

It’s time to play Who’s NOT Your Daddy on The Bachelorette Season 8, Episode 3.

Emily Maynard’s friends are going to grill her group date bachelors on how they’d fit into Em and Ricki’s world. Apparently some real drama is gonna go down at the cocktail party when Emily discovers someone is not ready to be a father and — as ABC puts it — she “makes her feelings clearly known.” (Is this when she tells someone to “get the f--k out”?)

Bobblehead boy Chris Bukowski and race car driver Arie Luyendyk, Jr., are also getting individual dates — and even though Dolly Parton will be on Arie’s date, we’re most looking forward to hearing more about this Arie + Em moment: “After the special concert, things get steamy as they enjoy a romantic dinner and share one of the most intense first kisses any couple has shared in Bachelorette history. Is this the start of something special or is it too good to be true?”

Hot diggity! Plus, this *is* Week 3 — and it might be worth noting that the past three Bachelorette Chosen Ones, Ed Swiderski (Season 5), Roberto Martinez (Season 6) and JP Rosenbaum (Season 7), all got dates on the third episode.

So … intense first kiss + the hotness of Arie + race-car driver + date on Week 3 = Fiancé?

Read on for details about what ABC says we can look forward to on Monday:

Adrenaline-filled date with Chris Bukowski: “It’s revealed to Chris that he has to work for his romantic dinner with Emily overlooking the downtown skyline of Charlotte… by joining her in scaling a building! The climb will be filled with a lot of nature’s special effects – thunder and lightning. Will Chris be able to help Emily overcome her fears and lead her to the top? The evening culminates with a special performance by country music star Luke Bryan. But will Emily surprise Chris one more time with a rose?”

Group date with Emily’s best friends and a bunch of kids: “The next day Emily accompanies 12 bachelors to a local park where they’re introduced to her best friends. The women come prepared to interrogate the bachelors and tell Emily who they think will be best for her and Ricki. After the inquisition, the men’s fathering skills are further tested when Emily reveals a group of rambunctious children streaming into the park who are all ready to play ball, hop on swings and chase the guys around, all under the Bachelorette’s watchful eye. At the after party that night, the competition revs up as the men battle for the rose. Meanwhile, one bachelor breaks down because he misses his son. Will he be able to continue his pursuit of the Bachelorette or will he succumb to his loneliness?”

Date with Arie Luyendyk, Jr. — and Dolly Parton! “Emily surprises an ecstatic Arie with the last individual date of the week, which begins with a private jet to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, where she reveals that they’ll spend the day at Dollywood, one of her favorite places. The couple have the park all to themselves to ride all the rides, play games and have a ball. But even Emily, who went to the park many times growing up, can’t guess what is coming. She gets the surprise of her life when her idol, the legendary Queen of Country Dolly Parton, serenades the two of them. After the special concert, things get steamy as they enjoy a romantic dinner and share one of the most intense first kisses any couple has shared in ‘Bachelorette’ history. Is this the start of something special or is it too good to be true?”

Distraught Bachelorette! Outraged Bachelor! “The cocktail party provides the backdrop for a bombshell disclosure, as Emily discovers who is ready to be a father and who isn’t. A distraught Bachelorette makes her feelings clearly known. When one of the men tries to comfort her with a kiss, another bachelor is outraged. It’s a rough night, and only 13 men will remain at the end of it to leave Charlotte and move on to the first stop in their world wind tour, Bermuda.”
