On this week of The Bachelorette, Ali and the guys leave Los Angeles and begin their trip around the world starting with New York City.
The first one-on-one date is with Kasey. He's never been to New York and Ali is "so thrilled" to show him around the right way. At the beginning of their date, he starts some metaphor about how Ali is a butterfly open and ready, but I'm too confused to follow. Instead of actually talking to Ali, Kasey decides to sing to her and she laughs awkwardly and then he keeps singing. I'm just glad I didn't witness that performance in person. The two then head to the natural history museum after-hours with a couple of flashlights, Ali seems pretty entertained by the dinosaurs alone, but Kasey adds to (or should we say takes away from) the atmosphere with gorilla noises. How charming!
Bye-bye mansion, hello... world. Ali and her 11 suitors embark on an around-the-world tour. Bet she remembered to pack the roses. First stop: New York, where it's Kasey's turn to deal with Ali's fear of helicopters. In addition, he must also deal with her questions. Later, Ali gets sick, delaying her date with Chris L. (The two are serenaded by Joshua Radin and the Harlem Boys Choir.) She also gets an InStyle makeover, appears in Broadway's The Lion King with one of the guys, and pares the field to nine before the Bachelorette love jet heads off to Iceland.

This week's TV was full of twist endings. Lie to Me's killer let his kid sister drown for the paltriest of reasons. United States of Tara's fractured heroine turned out to have a secret half-brother. Raylan let his nemesis escape on Justified. Sue Sylvester, of all people, came to Mr. Schu's rescue on Glee. And on Breaking Bad, Walt killed someone to save the partner who causes many of his troubles. Welcome to Top Moments: He Was Dead the Whole Time Edition...
Week 3 of The Bachelorette reached new heights (and lengths) with Ali and her date Roberto walking a tightrope 20 stories high and Justin walking, on crutches, from the guys' mansion to Ali's quarters just to get alone time. So why are the guys hating on Justin, and why did Ali keep Jonathan the "Weatherman" despite their awkward kiss and his tears, yet choose to let go of Hunter? Host Chris Harrison weighs in.
TVGuide.com: Why did Ali give Weatherman a rose?
Chris Harrison: I don't know, I think it might be one of those things, and putting myself in the place of women...
On this week of The Bachelorette, Ali must eliminate three guys and the drama in the house over Justin intensifies as he makes a bold gesture to show his feelings to Ali.
The first one-on-one date is with Roberto and Ali picks a very daring activity. First, the two fly by helicopter (why does Ali always take air transportation when she's so afraid of flying?).
Peppermint, birthdays and polar bears, oh my! Buddy makes a cake for the Coney Island Polar Bear Club, where he's invited to take a swim with the furry creatures. On top of that, Buddy's youngest son wants an ice-cream cake for his birthday.

The Bachelorette, Glee
There are lots of ways to handle awkward situations. Ignore them, which makes them worse. (See: this week's episodes of Breaking Bad and Glee.) Force them into the open, which can get emotional (Losing it with Jillian). Or just hit someone (Royal Pains). This week's episode of The Bachelorette reminded us that the one thing you should never do is change the subject to the weather. What's the best way to deal with an uncomfortable moment? See No. 1 on our list. Welcome to Top Moments, elephant-in-the-room edition.
The Bachelorette - Ali Fedotowsky
The women on The Bachelor get a bad rap for their fighting, but this week's The Bachelorette proved that guys can be just as catty. Chris Harrison, who can be seen hosting Friday's 2010 Scripps National Spelling Bee at 8/7c on ABC, explains to TVGuide.com that although Jonathan the weatherman got picked on, he's not a fan favorite, either. He also tells us why Ali is so gaga for Roberto.
TVGuide.com: What was up with Craig M. vs. the weatherman?
Chris Harrison: As much as I think we all felt a little sorry for Jonathan, he's not the fan favorite, either. You didn't see the guys exactly stand up and say...
Jeers to Ali Fedotowsky for keeping weatherman Jonathan in the picture on The Bachelorette. Sure, Canadian dental salesman (seriously, is there a better job description...
On this week's episode of The Bachelorette, Ali goes on her first two one-on-one dates and must send seven suitors packing.
Ali's first one-on-one date of the season is with Frank. She thinks he'll make for a lively and fun first date, but is also trying to figure out if there is any deeper connection there beyond their shared sense of humor. The date starts out in a vintage blue convertible, but trouble hits quickly. Just as the two are enjoying the views, the company and the vintage ride, the vintage part kicks in and the car rolls to a stop on the freeway. Instead of calling Triple AAA like a normal person, Ali is just (yes) too excited to start the date so she and Frank grab a cab and head to Hollywood. Ali, now known for her time on The Bachelor, is swarmed for photos and autographs and Frank deals with it graciously and is also able to interject his personality into the media attention of his famous date.
