Week 1: The Bachelorette Arrivals

Mon, Jan 3, 2011 121 mins

Brad Womack, who chose no one in his 2007 stint in the Bachelor Malibu mansion, returns for a second shot at love as Season 15 opens. But before he meets 30 new would-be brides, he's confronted by his spurned '07 finalists, Jenni Croft and DeAnna Pappas. Then the first bachelorette to emerge from the limousine slaps him. Others are friendlier (if sometimes wary) at the opening cocktail party, after which Brad culls the field to 20.

Week 4: Radio Show Date

Mon, Jan 24, 2011 121 mins

Fourteen women remain, one of whom has a black eye and no idea (she says) of how she got it. Before three are eliminated, nine appear on the radio show "Loveline With Mike & Dr. Drew," while one rappels down the side of an L.A. skyscraper with Brad and another accompanies him to Catalina Island, where she'll have to overcome her fear of water. Then there's the pre-elimination cocktail party, at which Brad picnics privately with one bachelorette, leaving the others unhappy, to say the least.

Mon, Jan 31, 2011 121 mins

Brad and the 11 remaining bachelorettes (three of whom will be eliminated) head to Las Vegas for a day at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and an evening at Cirque du Soleil's "Viva ELVIS" show, which includes a duet by Brad and one contestant. Unfortunately for another, it takes place during a two-on-one date, and she's the odd gal out. The episode's one-on-one date is a shopping trip to an upscale mall, followed by a rooftop dinner. And at the cocktail party, there's a display of confidence.

Brad and the eight remaining bachelorettes visit Costa Rica. Before sending two home, he squires one around the Central American nation in a helicopter and ventures into a cave that bats and spiders call home with another.
