"The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose," MONDAY, AUGUST 1
(10:02-11:00 p.m., ET).
J.P. meets Ashley's family: When J.P. first arrives to meet Ashley's
family at the Vomo Island Resort and Spa, he appears to make a great
first impression. However, Ashley's sister, Chrystie, whose opinion she
has always valued, lets her know that she doesn't see this man as the
one for her. The drama erupts as the two sisters confront one another
in a sensational fight. Ashley is stunned by her sister's frank
assessment and seeks solace from her brother. Meanwhile, Chrystie offers
J.P. a litany of things that she finds troubling about any future
relationship he might be planning with her sister. He is shocked by this
Ashley's sister Chrystie "J.P. is not the one for you"- The following day,
Ashley's attempts to clear the air with her sister fail and fireworks
start again - especially when Chrystie drops the bomb that she saw more
chemistry between her sister and Brad than Ashley and J.P. Another
heated verbal sparring session ensues while Ashley worries how her
family will receive Ben F. But when this amiable bachelor arrives, he
immediately charms everyone with his carefree attitude and sense of
humor. Even Chrystie is happy to see Ashley be herself around Ben F.,
which will only make her decision ever harder.
Ashley's final date with Ben- Ashley is now down
to her "last chance" dates with the final two men to bring some clarity
to the situation. She and Ben F. soar in a helicopter over the Fijian
seascape, landing near some natural hot springs where the couple spend a
steamy time together. Later, the date turns serious when the emotional
Ben F. finally completely opens up to Ashley and admits that he loves
her. This outpouring of emotion has a definite effect on Ashley.
Ashley's final date with J.P. - The
next day, Ashley and J.P. meet and the distressed bachelor is still
reeling from Chrystie's harsh judgment of him. He begs Ashley not to let
her sister's opinion influence her decision, but Ashley is determined
to make sure that the man she picks is right both for her head and
heart. Desperate to convince her that he is the one for her, J.P. admits
he's falling madly in love with her. He even surprises her with a
special gift that night as they snuggle.
The two remaining men are:
Ben F., 28, winemaker from Sonoma, CA
J.P., 34, construction manager from New York, NY
