The ladies all head to Sonoma so that they can see Ben's home town.
Kacie B, who is super adorable and real, gets the first date card but her date doesn't start until nightfall. They walk around town....do some shopping, he teaches her to play the piano and she teaches him to twirl a baton. They have dinner and talk about their lives. I can really see these two together and having kids. Kacie gets the rose.
DING DONG! Group date card arrives.
Ben has a surprise for Kacie. He takes her to an empty theater and home movies from their childhood are playing on the screen. Video of Ben and his Dad playing together and Ben buck ass naked as a kid. They are both in tears. What a downer!
Group Date Theatrics
In order to discover who is good with children, the ladies are forced to audition for a play that is cast and written by the children of the town. Ben is also in the production and is cast has Prince Pinot from the Land of Bachelorville. It should be noted that Blakeley is wearing a very inappropriate low cut, striped romper. Her *jugs* are all over the place. Monica is cast as the big, bad fire breathing dragon which I found ironic.
They end up performing for an audience and the play is actually very funny and one of the ladies blows Ben's clothes off (as he's dressed as a sheep).
They head over to a wrap party and Blakeley decides that she is going in for the kill and it's highly irritating to the other ladies. This makes Samantha so upset that she hides in the bathroom and fumes.
DING DONG....Date Card.
One on One date card goes to Courtney who just finished insulting Lindzi by telling her that her first impression rose actually went to the horse she rode in on. Courtney rubs her good luck in everyone's face.
Back at the party....Jennifer gets some alone time with Ben and they make out. With tongue. Five minutes later he is making out with Blakeley while Jennifer and some blonde that I can't identify are watching. Jennifer cries because he's kissing someone else. HELLO! YOU ARE ON THE BACHELOR! Blakeley gets the rose for making the most of her time with Ben. Blakeley can't figure out why everyone gets up and leaves when she walks into the room.
Dog Day Date
Ben brings his dog on his date with Courtney and she describes him as HOT (drink). Ben is hot...not the dog. He walks her into the woods and asks if she can handle the slow pace of small town life. She lies to his face and says she loves the woods because it's so peaceful. They have a picnic by the river and Courtney complains that she's so pretty that no one wants to date her. Ben describes her as the total package and too good to be true. He thinks that she has a winning (drink) personality and their time together feels natural and easy. Courtney gets the rose.
Ben tells everyone that he had a great time in Sonoma.
Blakeley keeps interrupting everyone's alone time with Ben and the ladies are getting very upset. They are talking about her and she's noticing that everyone stops talking when she walks into the room so she goes into the luggage room and sits in the corner.
Ben asks to talk to Jenna and she completely blows her time with him by babbling on and on about not being a real girl. I'm convinced that she has no social skills and a drinking problem. Jenna goes to bed and cries herself to sleep.
Ben goes around the house collecting up all of the unstable women that are hiding in bed and in corners so that they can have a rose ceremony.
