Rachel goes out for a walk with her dog and was enjoying Night 1 and where things stand. Chris Harrison shows up at the mansion and there are two group dates and a one-on-one date this week! The first group date card he leaves and it is a group date for Dean, Jack, Jon, Blake, Iggy, Kenny, Fred and Lucas.
The guys head out and Rachel is barbecuing, so they are excited! They enjoy some food and drinks and then play some football. However, Rachel tells them they did not think that was everything, right? They head out and meet Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, who are huge fans of the show! They are testing the guys in a “Husband Material” obstacle course on The Bachelorette 2017!
Back at the mansion, Lee is talking and running his mouth about the pressure on the guys on the group date. The ones that do bad, he will snatch up their spot.
For the obstacle course, they will be changing diapers and vacuuming and making dinner! Ashton said he is making a bold prediction and the winner of The Bachelorette Season 13 is not in this group! He said he knew on Day 1 that Mila was the one, so she said he is getting laid tonight! This one come down to Lucas and Kenny and Lucas stiff-arms Kenny at the flowers and Lucas wins. Lucas wants Ashton to do a whaboom and he has no clue. Blake is pissed that Lucas one and his bitterness towards him continues from the premiere.
Time for the evening portion of the date on The Bachelorette 2017. Lucas won the challenge, so Rachel chats with him first. While he chats, Blake tries to rally the other guys against Lucas. They said Rachel is smart enough to see through his games. Fred and Rachel talk about summer camp, yet again.
NEXT DATE CARD
At the mansion, the next date card arrives and it is a one-on-one for Peter!
Rachel is not feeling it with the guys right now. She wants some romance and the guys are all being stuff. Then Blake wastes his alone time with Rachel talking about Lucas and how Lucas is not there for the right reasons. Rachel was not happy with things, but then Dean came in and was a breath of fresh air. He gets her laughing and she loves it. They talk about his comment on the ATFR and she loved it. She was upset, as she wanted to use that line herself eventually. Kenny chats with Rachel about his daughter and she loves how he talks about her. No kisses tonight on this group date, yet! Rachel hands out the group date rose and it goes to Dean! He walks her out and gets that kiss her wanted earlier!
They head out to an airport and are headed to Palm Springs on a private jet. Rachel surprises Peter and said this will be a two-on-one date today! Yup, out comes Copper, as her dog will be joining them today and he is beyond adorable. On the plane, Peter is petting Copper and Copper is definitely loving Peter, so that is a good sign for him. in Palm Springs, they head to Bark fest and Copper is loving all the dogs. They talk about locations and Peter said he is willing to move wherever. Rachel is definitely digging him and said he is so dreamy.
FINAL DATE CARD
The next date card and it is a group date for Will, Jamey, Diggy, Alex, Adam, Lee, Matt, Eric, Josiah and DeMario. It says “Swish,” so it looks like some basketball for them on The Bachelorette 2017!
Time for the evening portion of the date and Copper is with them tonight also! They talk about the gap in their teeth. Everyone in Peter’s family seems to have it, but Rachel said she is the only one in her family with it. Rachel said Peter is making her feel that romance she missed on the group date. They talk about how they both ended a relationship and saw a therapist to help them through it. Rachel was feeling Peter this whole date and sees a lot of potential with Peter, so she gives him the rose and they seal it with a kiss! They head out and get a private fireworks show to end the night, as Rachel said she can’t stop smiling when with Peter!
SECOND GROUP DATE
Rachel is shooting some hoops, as the guys come in. To help them out, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is there! They run some drills and Kareem said this is not all about hoops, but about character and seeing how these guys really are. DeMario is working it and dunking the ball, even on Rachel! It looks like they are playing a game in front of a packed gymnasium!
The crowd is coming in and Adam, Jr. is in the audience to cheer them on! The game gets started and we see Eric dancing and showboating out there, as he then shoots and misses! All of the guys seem to be shooting bricks, but they finally get it together. Rachel is having fun with the cheerleaders and band while watching! DeMario turns it up in the second half, as he is blocking shots and dunking and Rachel is impressed.
THE GIRLFRIEND ARRIVES
Rachel is greeting fans and taking photos and then Lexi arrives, who happens to be the girlfriend of DeMario! He was on the ATFR special and Lexi said they were still together at that time and never broke up! She said they were together and then DeMario disappeared for like three days and then she saw him on the ATFR special! Rachel is blown away and goes to get DeMario. He comes out and asks who is this? Yeah, they aren’t that dumb!
DeMario claims she is crazy. He said him and Lexi were off and on again, but he ended it with her. Lexi said it was never ended. DeMario said he officially cut it off and did it face-to-face. Lexi said he still has the keys to her apartment, but he said he mailed them. Lexi brings out the text messages and Rachel said this is not how you talk to someone you don’t want to be with. Rachel is livid and she tells him to get the f*** out of here! I love this and I love Rachel even more right now!
BACK TO THE GROUP DATE
Rachel goes inside the locker room to talk to the other guys. She tells them the situation with DeMario. The guys are blown away. Rachel said she is putting her heart out there, so if anyone else has a boyfriend, let her know now. She is not happy, but it looks like the date will continue tonight.
Time for the evening portion of the date on The Bachelorette 2017. The mood is mellow and they want to improve Rachel’s mood. Josiah talks about her being hurt and he is a protector. She is feeling him and they kiss. The bad with DeMario brought out a good night with the other guys. Eric and her talk about being loved by touch and giving their time. He gets that hug and kiss from her! The guys definitely made it a better night for Rachel, as she gives the group date rose to Josiah!
Rachel comes in and is looking fabulous! She said she started to question things after what DeMario did, but the other guys helped improve that for her. Bryan did not get a date tonight, so he pulls her aside and kisses her right away! He goes in for those kisses and like sucks her face off! He then gives her a massage. Rachel is chatting with the guys, as security is out front and DeMario is back and wants to chat with Rachel and clear things up from the day before! Chris Harrison comes out and said he will talk to Rachel, but it is up to Rachel on this one.
Chris chats with Rachel and she said she is very curious to see what he could possibly say to her right now! Lee and Fred overhear this, so they go in to tell the other guys that DeMario is out front! The guys are pissed and head out to beat his butt!
