And it’s down to two . . . who will win Jillian’s final rose?
Last night, Bachelorette Jillian whisked her three final suitors off to Hawaii to give the guys a chance to show off their romantic prowess. Kip, Reid and Ed were the in the final three and each had the backdrop of Maui to show Jillian that they were the one who deserved her heart. So how did they do?
Kip and Jillian completed a ropes course together. He went first and then Jillian only would do it too if Kip promised to kiss her every step of the way—of course he complied. Over dinner, he admitted to some commitment phobia but they moved on to spend the night in the fantasy suite anyway.
Reid and Jillian joined the mile-high club with a helicopter tour of Hawaii. All was heavenly until Reid panicked just a smidge when the pilot mentioned he performed aerial weddings. Later Reid confessed to Jillian that it was hard for him to say the “L word.” Even so, Jillian invited him back to the fantasy suite for some QT in the hot tub.
And finally, Ed and Jillian had a picture perfect date on a catamaran boat ride. Afterwards, Ed surprised Jillian with a visit from his parents. Not exactly who you want to crash your most romantic date yet with your possible fiancé to be . . . but since Ed had yet to return to the show during the “hometown dates” he felt it was important that Jillian have the opportunity to meet the ‘rents. It seemed as if Ed was clearly the frontrunner last night—even promising Jillian that he would propose if she chose him—until they headed to the fantasy suite and Ed couldn’t, uh, seal the deal.
During the rose ceremony, Reid was sent home leaving it to Ed and Kip to duel over Jillian’s final rose in the upcoming finale (next week is the juicy Men Tell All special). Ed promised Jillian last night that his failure to launch in the fantasy suite was just a fluke. And Reid seems a little unsure of going all in with her if he did get the final rose. We know that Jillian already got her heart broken once before on national television when Bachelor Jason Resnik didn’t present her with his final rose so we hope that Ed or Kip come through and give her what she’s been searching for!
