The episode opens on Chris Harrison surprising the 15 remaining contestants at the Bachelor mansion. The host reveals that the ladies are packing up and traveling to Cleveland, Ohio, and their reactions say it all.
“When I think of Ohio, I don’t necessarily think of romance,” one contestant says. Two words: budget cuts.
When they arrive at the hotel, the first date card arrives, and it’s addressed to Victoria F. (Not to be confused with Victoria P., who had a one-on-one date in last week’s episode.)
Victoria F. is taken to an airport and nearly has a panic attack when she assumes the date involves skydiving. (Spoiler alert: It doesn’t.) Instead, Weber is flying her to Sandusky, where they visit a world-famous amusement park, Cedar Point.
Everything is going great, despite the fact that Victoria F. is afraid of heights. But things take an interesting turn when Weber surprises her with an impromptu Chase Rice concert.
The problem? Victoria F. used to date the country singer, and Weber has no idea. So, she awkwardly dances with the pilot and then drags him out of the venue without saying anything.
After the concert, Victoria F. makes her way backstage and pulls Rice aside. He claims he had no idea she’d be on the one-on-one date, even though Victoria F. says Rice tried to stop her from coming on the show. *Eye roll*
Later that night, Victoria F. comes clean to Weber during dinner. “I think it would be really unfair not to tell you,” she says.
Weber is in disbelief. “Wait, the singer?” he says. “I just talked to him.” Victoria F. explains she dated Rice before coming on the show but broke off the relationship. When Weber asks why she didn’t say anything during the concert, Victoria F. gets overwhelmed and excuses herself from the table.
The pilot tracks her down and confirms that her past relationship won’t hurt her chances on the show. At the end of the night, Weber gives her the rose. (#Predictable)
