The Bachelor Full Episode Guide

  • Hannah Ann and Kelsey attempt to try and bury the hatchet, but only make matters worse. Meanwhile, Peter concentrates on having fun, and Demi Burnett masterminds an "Extreme Pillow Fight Club" group date.

  • The hunt for love with Peter Weber, featuring a hard-charging career woman from a family of elite lawyers, a delightfully quirky bombshell full of self-doubt, a beauty who can be a real beast, a gorgeous girl next door who is a hoopster at heart and a sophisticated city girl who speaks her mind.

  • Colton discusses the final days of his journey with Chris Harrison. Plus, Demi, Onyeka, Sydney, Jason Tartick and Chris Randone speculate on the season's conclusion.

  • Devastated after Cassie's announcement, Colton takes off into the Portuguese night and considers ending his journey.

  • Twenty of the most unforgettable women this season will return to confront each other and Colton and offer the lowdown on their quarrels and personal hostilities as they battled to capture Colton's heart.

  • Colton and the three remaining women embark on a journey to the Algarve region of Portugal. It's a trip full of major surprises, high anticipation and extreme anxiety.

  • Colton made it through an extremely challenging week, questioning which women were really ready for commitment. In the end, he found four amazing bachelorettes he cares about who have his confidence: Caelynn, Cassie, Hannah G. and Tayshia. A visit to Caelynn's hometown of Fredericksburg, Va., turns emotional as her protective family needs convincing that Colton is serious about his desire to be married.

  • Oneyka and Nicole's shattering showdown continues as Colton tries to find an escape from the ordeal. After the rose ceremony, the remaining bachelorettes travel to the lush, tropical paradise of Vietnam's Cam Ranh coast. The first one-on-one date is captured by a woman, who has magic chemistry with Colton. Their spa date reignites their passion, but deeper issues need resolving. A group date at the historic Hai Thai Ancient House proves to be an adrenaline rush for the women.

  • Colton's search for his soulmate moves on to the tropical paradise of Khao Lak, Thailand. Thirteen determined women see this lush destination as a great opportunity to advance their individual love stories with the Bachelor. Heather is the lucky woman to get Colton's first one-on-one date: a scenic boat ride along Thailand's coast, which lands them at the "floating city" of Ko Panyi.

  • The group travels to Singapore; Tayisha and Colton bungee jump; Colton takes Caelynn shopping.

  • Colton's search for love starts with laughs, surprises and intense face-offs between the women. The first date of the season has eight hopeful bachelorettes sharing personal stories about their "firsts" and coached by happily married masters of comedy Megan Mullally ("Will & Grace") and Nick Offerman ("Parks and Recreation"). Hannah B. scores the first one-on-one date on her birthday, including dinner on The Queen Mary.

  • Colton discusses the backlash against him; 30 women arrive, hoping to make a good impression.
