The Bachelorette Episode Recap: June 22, 2009

In this week's episode, the pressure rises as the guys try to stay in the competition until next week, when Jillian will visit the remaining bachelors' hometowns.


Hello, and welcome back to our recap. With me as always is my beautiful and brilliant fiancée, who this week predicted not only what bachelors would get roses, but did so in the correct order. She also saw this Jon and Kate thing back in 2005.

The episode begins with Jillian taking the guys on a train trip across Canada. They pass snowcapped mountains, lush trees, and reflecting lakes.

It has a very lovely lake.
