The women head to Park City, Utah, on this week's episode of The Bachelor, and it's not just the weather that's icy.
Rachel gets the first one-on-one and it's also the season's first helicopter date. She and Ben take off and when they land they set off in a canoe situated on a gorgeous secluded lake. It's not before long that the two share a kiss (and make some awkward noises), but it's get even more awkward — in a bad way — when they get back to land. It becomes evident these two don't have much to talk about.
The ladies arrive in San Francisco where Ben meets up with his sister Julia to tell her about some of the women who have stood out. He mentions, Lindzi, Courtney — with whom he thinks his sis would hit it off — Kacie B. and that Jennifer is the best kisser so far. Apparently, he and his sister are ...
Late Night with Jimmy Fallon
Our top moments of the week:
12. Most Sympathetic Plea: Resident One Tree Hill villain Dan Scott returns to town after his diner and home burn down. Dan tears up when he begs Haley to help him get back on his feet, and we actually feel bad for him for the first time ever. It may have taken nine seasons, but it looks like Dan Scott is finally back in our good graces... for now.

The Bachelor, Kacie and Ben
While some dates on The Bachelor turn into an emotionally bonding moment, others are all about making out in the pool. In this week's chat with host Chris Harrison, he tells us why Kacie B's Sonoma stroll and theater date fortified her status as a front-runner, how Blakeley's breasts earned her a rose and that next week's mystery woman gets a big beating.
It's Week 2 of The Bachelor and the women are off to Sonoma, Calif., to meet Ben in his hometown. While some of the women begin to form relationships with Ben, others continue their downward emotional spiral.
The first date card arrives at the house and it's for Kacie B. The others, of course, are jealous and Courtney even hopes she doesn't return. Ben arrives in his truck and takes her to explore his stomping grounds in downtown Sonoma. They head inside a café with a piano, and the two play a few chords before moving on to a candy shop. There, Kacie grabs a baton and shows off her twirling skills, which are impressive. Ben's twirling abilities? Not so much. They eventually land at dinner where Ben talks about returning to Sonoma after his father got sick. The conversation is easy. It's no surprise that Kacie gets a rose — and a kiss. And for an additional surprise Ben takes Kacie into a theater where a home video of her childhood — then his — is played.
The Bachelor, Jenna and Ben
Every season of The Bachelor has an emotional wreck, and as viewers saw on the premiere, Jenna is that girl this time. Host Chris Harrison says that both he and producers initially pegged the New York City blogger a front-runner until they saw her meltdown almost lead to a missed rose ceremony.
Catch up on The Bachelor with our recap of Week 1
We're back with our weekly chats with Harrison who shares his thoughts on the women, which entrance he thought was the worst and how Ben did on his first night running the show.
Nothing says the holidays are over like the return of The Bachelor! I have to admit I was a bit skeptical of Ben Flajnik being chosen as the new guy, but after watching the premiere, I think we have a great season in store. These are some entertaining ladies, to say the least! So on that note, let's get the recapping party started.
