The Bachelor Episode Recap: Finale Season 14, Episode 9

On the season finale of The Bachelor, Jake introduces Tenley and Vienna to his family as he struggles to decide which woman to choose.

After a long very montage showing viewers how far we've come, Jake is still where we saw him at the end of the last new episode in St. Lucia: stuck between two women he's fallen in love with. Before he makes his big choice, however, Jake must bring his family into the equation for their take on Tenley and Vienna.

The Bachelor Episode Recap: "Women Tell All" Season 14, Episode 8

On this week's episode of The Bachelor, the women (minus Tenley and Vienna) reunite to reflect back on the season, and Rozlyn returns to share her side of one of the series' biggest scandals.

The first half-hour is pretty much all filler footage. Let's relive the most dramatic moments of the season viewers have seen too many times already! Aw, look at past Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants hanging out in Vegas together and giving back to the less fortunate (gee, I wonder if that's tied at all to the upcoming Bachelor spin-off Bachelor Pad?!).

The Bachelor Episode Recap: Week 7 Season 14, Episode 7

On this week's episode of The Bachelor, Jake takes Gia, Tenley and Vienna on a romantic getaway to St. Lucia and a heart-broken Ali asks for a second chance.

Up until Ali's shocking decision to leave the show (and Jake) to save her job, it seemed Gia was most likely on the chopping block and on this, the night's first date; she'll have to really prove why she belongs to stay.

The Bachelor Episode Recap: Week 6 Season 14, Episode 6

On this week's episode of The Bachelor, Jake embarks on four very different hometown dates and Ali must make a very life-changing decision.

In New York City, Gia's family seems tough to please right off the bat. Gia's mom and brother are 100 percent on the offensive to break Jake down and even before they dig into dinner, Gia's mom is already badgering our boy. Gia's mom even pulls Jake aside from the table to ask him point blank if he has really and truly fallen for four girls. Jake says he has, but also gives mom some good food for thought about his relationship with Gia specifically. By the end of the evening, she seems to be Jake's biggest fan. Gia has always been very realistic about how, although Jake may be falling for her, it's clear he's falling for other women just as hard but her mom says she has "intuition" that his feelings for Gia are different. Gia shows off her level-headedness (sooo not Bachelor-like) and says she doesn't want Jake to be in love with her yet; she just wants to know she stands out in his eyes. The funniest part is when Gia's brother tells Jake he'll break legs if he has to but even baby bro is won over by Jake in the end.

The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love Season 14, Episode 5

Jake and the five remaining bachelorettes are in San Francisco for visits to Chinatown, the Coit Tower, Golden Gate Park and the California Academy of Sciences (for dinner). There's also an excursion (for Jake and two ladies) to a Napa Valley castle. No roses are bestowed on any of the dates, but four are at the ceremony. The four recipients will take Jake home to meet their families. read more

The Bachelor Episode Recap: Week 4 Season 14, Episode 4

On this week's episode of The Bachelor, Jake and the ladies take a road trip and more than a few women get left behind.

The first stop on the trip is to a vineyard in Santa Ynez, a fun and romantic spot for his one-on-one date with Gia. Vienna's mean side rears her ugly head as she predicts Gia's big city personality won't be able to tough it out in the vineyard. Vienna is more than wrong, as Gia and Jake click right from the start. After a very cheesy game of hide-and-seek, they play a slightly less cheesy game of spin-the-bottle and share a romantic night in front of the campfire. Gia and Jake hadn't spent a lot of time alone up to this time, but there seems to be lots of chemistry and Jake is more than happy to give her a rose at the end of the night.

The Bachelor Episode Recap: Week 3 Season 14, Episode 3

On this episode of The Bachelor, two gals get one-on-one dates and not two, but three are sent packing by Jake himself.

Vienna gets the first one-on-one date and as the bubbly 23-year-old jumps into the car, Jake goes on and on about dating women he may not normally date, and getting out of his comfort zone. On their date, they take a helicopter to a bridge where they jump, just one problem. They're both afraid of heights? Last time I checked she's supposed to be fun-loving and he's supposed to be a pilot but OK. However, Jake makes a positive out of a negative in saying that he and Vienna can overcome their fear together and bond in the experience and also share a first kiss "unlike any first kiss I've ever had," Jake says. Vienna gets a rose, much to the shock and disappointment of all of her housemates.

The Bachelor Episode Recap: "Week 2" Season 14, Episode 2

On this week of The Bachelor, Jake takes some of the lovely ladies on a group date and ABC reveals a contestant's "inappropriate relationship" with someone behind the scenes.

Chris Harrison starts off the episode by explaining the rules to the ladies, you know for whomever on earth hasn't seen the show before. The ladies selected to go on the group date include Gia, Ashleigh, Rozlyn, Christina and others, who get to go to a rooftop photo shoot with Jake in Santa Monica. (I'm sorry, did we stumble into America's Next Top Model?) Everyone seems to be having fun, except for Christina, who is feeling a little self-conscious in front of the camera.  Understandable, although a little ironic considering she's feeling self-conscious about the camera while she's on camera. However, the moment turns sweet when Jake embraces Christina to help her feel comfortable in front of the camera and the two share a cute pose.

Premise: True love (or a TV facsimile thereof) gets the reality treatment in this long-running dating game, in which a successful bachelor romances a number of beauties. The list of possible paramours is reduced each week until he gives a final red rose to one of them. The series spun off 'The Bachelorette', a spate of rip-offs and very few lasting pairings.
