The drama rages on as Bennett and Noah continue to confront one another on the impromptu two-on-one date. JoJo ups the ante by explaining to the men that a rose this week will be their ticket to a hometown date and an opportunity to introduce Tayshia to their families. One man’s one-on-one date starts as a fun scavenger hunt but evolves into a more serious discussion when he shares a deeply emotional secret with the Bachelorette that he hasn’t revealed to anyone else. Honesty is at the top of Tayshia’s list for a soul mate, and she puts five men through a high-pressure lie detector date. After all the confessions, there is one more shocking surprise at the end of the night that might turn her journey upside down.
There is no love lost between bitter rivals Bennett and Noah, but Tayshia is playing her cards close to the vest when it comes to which man will stay and which will go home. Who will win this love match? Which men will remain after the crucial rose ceremony?
A happy-go-lucky guy will see things take a somber tone when he opens up about a past situation on his one-on-one date with Tayshia. Will it lead to a breakthrough in their relationship? Country music hit maker Adam Hambrick serenades the couple, singing his new song, “Between Me and the End of the World.”
What truths will Tayshia uncover when she scrutinizes the guys and subjects them to a lie detector test? She learns some surprising things about her suitors, which means they have some serious explaining to do if they are to snag a date rose and a hometown date. The bachelors impressively show up but they make Tayshia’s decision that much harder.
But nothing could prepare the Bachelorette for what would end her evening and potentially change the ending to her happily ever after.
