Chris and the 11 remaining women begin their journey around the country to find love in picturesque Santa Fe, New Mexico. Carly is the lucky woman to get the first one-on-one date, but the couple has to survive a very awkward, intimate meeting with the “Love Guru.” Kelsey, already the focus of the other women’s animosity, stirs up more trouble when some of the women don’t believe her to be the sympathetic character she seems to be. A group date with nine gorgeous bachelorettes challenges them to ride the whitewater rapids of the Rio Grande River, but one woman falls overboard with perilous results. A stunned Chris is confronted by a rejected lady from his past who won’t take “no” for an answer. The Bachelor swoops in and takes Britt on a fabulously romantic hot air balloon ride, but is there something she is hiding from Chris to curry favor? Finally, Kelsey’s bid for attention goes awry.
