'The Bachelor' Week 7 Recap: The Top Five Highlights
The Bachelor," and this week was no exception. Tensions were high as the six remaining ladies duked it out for Ben's love against the stunning backdrop of beautiful Belize. A quick rule change amped up the suspense -- no roses were handed out during the three one-on-one dates, which left the final lineup a question mark until the last minute.
Professions of love, leaps of faith, and several colorful animal metaphors targeted at villainous Courtney made for a lively episode that revealed a lot about Ben's priorities (and showed off his extensive swim trunk collection). Here are the week's top five highlights:
5. Lindzi Makes the Leap
Lindzi caught Ben's eye on Day 1 when she was awarded the coveted First Impression Rose after riding in on horseback. She proved that she's still got it by utterly enchanting Ben on their one-on-one date, which kicked off the episode. The twosome took a helicopter that hovered over the Great Blue Hole, a deep ocean pool ringed by a coral reef. Lindzi was all giggles until she discovered Ben's penchant for leaping great distances into bodies of water (like most of the women he chooses to jump with, she's terrified of heights). A smooch from Ben gave her the courage to make the leap, and the payoff was worth it -- a deep-sea make-out session awaited her below.
4. Emily Falls Hard
Emily, who hit a rough patch with Ben after establishing herself as Courtney's main antagonist, managed to snag the second one-on-one date, which was fortunately free of extreme sports. Ben took her for a stroll around the island for an idyllic day of sightseeing and spontaneous lobster diving, when Emily got the chance to show off her fearlessness and spunk.
