Air Date: May 25, 2009 at 12:00 AM PDT
Future Bachelor Jake Pavelka
escorts Jillian on a one-on-one date to a private Martina McBride concert. The Bachelorette also goes on a group date to Venice Beach, where the guys (Wes, Mathue, Michael, Ed, Brian, Sasha, Tanner P., and Brad) play basketball with the Harlem Globetrotters, proving that white men still cannot jump. For the second group date, Jillian, Dave, Jesse, Simon, Kiptyn, Mike, Mark, and Juan enjoy a pool party and a race across Los Angeles. On the first group date, Wes wins a one-on-one date and a rose, and on the second, Mike nabs a rose for his spontaneity. Before the rose ceremony, the men vote on the guys they'd like Jillian to send home. In the end, Jillian eliminates four bachelors (Mathue, Simon, Brian, and Julien) — paring the field down to 16.
