We're only on Episode 2, and already one of The Bachelor women was drunk and belligerent.
On the season's first group date, Victoria threw back a few too many and had an epic meltdown that including some choice words for Juan Pablo. After threatening to leave, Victoria ultimately crashed in a hotel room and awoke feeling just a tad embarrassed. For Juan Pablo, it was more than enough to send her packing before even making it to the cocktail party. Host Chris Harrison explains why the stunt was a complete turn-off for our sexy single dad and also shares some behind-the-scenes scoop on this week's one-on-one dates. Plus: Is Lucy for real?!
Ratings: Bachelor premiere hits three-year high
Both one-on-one dates went really well and looked like so much fun!
Chris Harrison: You know who helped us out with the electric run? Jef[Holm]; he was an integral part in setting that up. We went to Park City, Utah, for it and it was so cool. Juan Pablo is an athletically inclined guy, so it was great for him and when [he and Kat] stopped and danced on stage it was a lot of fun. For Clare's date, we turned this field in Los Angeles into the winter wonderland. Juan Pablo actually went out earlier with Camila because she hadn't really ever been around snow before, so they went ice skating and played in the snow and then he went back for the date.
Is Lucy for real? The girl is cuckoo.
Harrison: The thing about Lucy is that a lot of times you think they're putting on airs or it's an act, but I promise you that's 100 percent her. At some point, we said, "You need to put clothes on!" She's always naked, she never wears shoes and she just doesn't have a care in the world.
Does Juan Pablo actually like that though?
Harrison: I think [at first] he was attracted to that and she's stunningly beautiful, but then everything runs through this Camila family filter and you realize, wait a minute, is this going to be Camila's stepmom? No, I'm not sure that's going to work. He'll have to see more character, depth and maturity from her and she got a rose, but you'll see he's going to be like, we're having a good time, but there has to be more depth.
The Bachelor's Chris Harrison: We've never had anybody get to second base on Night 1!
Victoria was the first girl to get wasted. What a disaster!
Harrison: He actually told the girls early on Night 1 that this isn't the place to get wasted-drunk and he also doesn't drink a lot. One thing about Juan Pablo you should know is that if he ever says, "Ay" and then a name, that's not good. So when he said, "Ay, Victoria," you knew she was toast. He's not a partier; he's subdued and family-oriented and not the guy who's going to be taking tequila shots.
Andi seemed to stand out on the group date even though she didn't get the rose.
Harrison: Definitely. He's very attracted to strong woman like her andSharleen and he's really taken by intelligent women and the type who push back a little.
There's another Bachelor Sunday special coming up. What can you tell us about it?
Harrison: It's love from The Bachelor with all our couples. Trista andRyan renew their vows, we catch up with J.P. and Ashley and also the other couples who have come from the show. Des and Chris are also on and they're great, they're madly in love and hopefully we'll be doing their wedding. We're on a crazy roll lately!
The Bachelor airs on Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.
