When the group date card arrives, it’s addressed to Cassie, Heather, Tayshia, Caelynn, Katie, Hannah B., Sydney and Demi, which means Kirpa is the lucky recipient of the final one-on-one date.
This time, Underwood takes the ladies to the Hai Thai Ancient House, where they’re introduced to Vietnamese martial arts.
Demi says, “It wouldn’t be a group date if someone wasn’t bleeding or crying by the end of it.” (#Amen)
After pairing off, the women battle it out in a series of sparring matches, with commentary by Harrison and The Bachelor: Vietnam host Khôi Trần. Sure, things started off on a good note. “I’ve never seen so much giggling and laughing,” Harrison says.
But things take a dramatic turn when Kate accidentally hits Demi in the face, prompting Underwood to see a side of Demi he hasn’t seen before. “You hit my f****** face,” she screams repeatedly. Yikes.
Later that night, there are two key takeaways. First, Demi calls her mom so she can “officially” meet Underwood, and yes, it’s just as awkward as it sounds.
She says, “I haven’t heard her voice outside of ‘This is a call from a federal prison.’”
And second, Sydney is following in Elyse’s footsteps. It all started earlier that day when the group date card arrived. Since Sydney has yet to receive anything other than a group date, she was devastated when it went to Hannah G., especially since she “gave up everything” to be here.
So, she pulls Underwood aside and demands to know why she isn’t good enough for a one-on-one date. After low-key calling him boring (*slow clap*), Sydney decides to leave the show.
But before she does, Sydney gives Underwood one piece of advice: “Don’t be distracted by shiny things.” (Cough, Demi, cough.)
When he returns to the group, Underwood gives the rose to Tayshia.
