On tonight’s episode of The Bachelorette 2018, fans will get to see the dreaded 2-on-1 date, for the first time this season. Often, there is only one of these dates per season, but there have been multiple in the past. Generally, the 2-on-1 date results in the elimination of one contestant, while the other rides off into the metaphorical sunset with the star. In this case, the star is Becca Kufrin and the two battling contestants are Jordan Kimball and David Ravitz. It’s customary to choose two contestants who do not get along and both of these men have been vocal about their hatred for each other over the course of the season.
According to ABC’s plot description of tonight’s show, “Confrontational from the start, David and Jordan embark on their two-on-one date with Becca. They drive through the wondrous red sandstone formations of the Valley of Fire to arrive at a rest area. The two men face off with the Bachelorette caught in the middle. Which of these feuding bachelors will end up with the date rose?”
So, before we get into the results of the 2-on-1 date, this is your MAJOR SPOILER WARNING. If you do not want to know the outcome of the date, STOP READING NOW.
With that out of the way, let’s get into the results …
Ravitz is eliminated on the 2-on-1 date, but Kimball gets eliminated later on. Kimball does not get the date rose, but the two walk away from Ravitz, ending the 2-on-1.
While on the date, Kimball and Ravitz argued, of course, and Kimball told his enemy that he was worse than Arie, referring to Arie Luyendyk Jr., the former Bachelor who dumped Kufrin. In front of Kufrin, the two continued to argue and Ravitz accused Kimball of saying he would be “settling” by being with her. Kufrin said that she felt like she was back in 6th grade and that the date was frustrating, annoying and petty.
Earlier this season, Ravitz said on the show that Kimball rubs him the wrong way and that he hopes Kufrin wants someone deeper than he is. Meanwhile, Kimball said Ravitz has no sense of humor and that Kufrin needs a guy who wants to have fun. He also told the other contestants that he felt that Ravitz had a vendetta against him, which proved to be true when Ravitz told Kufrin he’s not a fan of the blonde male model. He also dished to Kufrin that Kimball was bragging to the other contestants about his Tinder (dating app) account.
When Kimball heard that Ravitz ratted him out, he called Ravitz a “bitch” and the other contestants were speechless. Kimball then tried to explain himself to Kufrin, who says she has a sense of humor about the situation. When speaking to the cameras, Kimball said that “karma is karma” and that people who mess with him sometimes get burnt.
Ravitz wasn’t the only contestant to have issues with Kimball this season. Some of the other contestants were not fans of his. Colton Underwood was very vocal about his disdain for Kimball and confronted him about it, saying he didn’t think Kimball was on the show “for the right reasons”.
