The three-hour first part of this week’s Bachelor flew by in a flurry of tears, makeout sessions, and accusations of drinking problems and pill-popping. It was truly an episode for the ages.

Bachelor Season 24, Episode 6 Preview
On Monday, February 3, Kelsey was the focus of the episode, as she struggled with the situation of her “boyfriend” dating a dozen other women at the same time. She expressed this frustration by drinking and crying a lot, something that the other women were getting annoyed by.
So Tammy took it upon herself to tell Peter about Kelsey’s emotional instability (Tammy’s words) and possibly a drinking problem. There was also something about Tammy telling the other girls she saw Kelsey popping pills, but viewers only heard about that after the fact — it was not shown on camera.
All of this threw a wrench in the cocktail party and ultimately Peter let Shiann and Lexi go. Lexi was particularly distraught because she felt like she hadn’t gotten any time with Peter since arriving in Costa Rica.
Now on the second half of this week’s episodes, Peter and his ladies jet off to beautiful Santiago, Chile and guess what?! It’s time for the annual two-on-one date and we. cannot. wait. This year’s crop of bachelorettes is so full of volatile relationships that there are many good combinations of who might have to do it. I kind of hope it’s Kelsey and Sydney because Kelsey-Tammy isn’t that exciting. They’re certainly a contentious pair, but Tammy doesn’t feel like a serious enough of a contender to allow any tension as to who gets the rose.
Anyway, in addition to that, the group date involves filming a telenovela and, in true telenovela fashion, it will apparently devolve into “bachelorettes yelling at one another.”
The 10 remaining bachelorettes are:
Hannah Ann, 23, a model from Knoxville, TN
Kelley, 27, an attorney from Chicago, IL
Kelsey, 28, a professional clothier from Des Moines, Iowa
Madison, 23, a foster parent recruiter from Auburn, AL
Mykenna, 22, a fashion blogger from Langley, B.C., Canada
Natasha, 31, an event planner from New York, NY
Sydney, 24, a retail marketing manager from Birmingham, AL
Tammy, 24, a house flipper from Syracuse, NY
Victoria F., 25, a medical sales representative from Virginia Beach, VA
Victoria P., 27, a nurse from Alexandria, LA
Now that the field is getting fairly small, who are your frontrunners for the next Bachelorette? Chris Harrison dished some great dirt for us on the casting process, so you better believe the show is constantly monitoring fan reactions.
The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC, with a special episode airing this Wednesday, February 5 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC as well.
