After three “best dates ever,” it’s time for Becca to face the unfortunate task of sending two guys home. Jason, Leo, and Wills, you’re up!
Buck up, boys. You’ve got a Bachelorette to impress. They meet Becca on a “private” island for a group game of volleyball and then brief-but-intense individual chats. “I really, really, want you to meet my parents,” says Wills. “Next year, they will be celebrating their 50th anniversary!” (Ooooh, this bodes well for Wills’ Bachelor qualifications — he’s seeking a love like mom and dad’s!)
Jason tells Becca he sees a happy future with her, and that’s why he’s stayed positive during an otherwise tough week. Leo’s feeling anxious, though, because he knows he’s so “different” from the remaining men. For one thing, he’s not ready to propose in two weeks — that’s for damn sure. Becca appreciates his honesty, but she’s also up front about the fact that she wants a guy who’s prepared to propose… and so Leo, I’m afraid that means your time here is up. Please pack your hair ties and go.
One down, one to go. Becca is still torn once dinner rolls around, and she’s hoping she’ll get a “gut feeling” about which guy to keep. Should it be Jason, whom she has great chemistry with but who isn’t always as “vocal” with his “feelings” as Becca would like him to be? Or should it be Wills, who has the confidence to wear plaid suits and floral rompers, but who is definitely not the beefy-jock type Becca seems to go for (see: Garrett, Colton)? To our Bachelorette, the choice is between “somebody… who’s already all in” or someone “who I don’t know if he’s quite there with me yet.” Oh man, I think something super-sad is about to happen…
CAN SOMEONE PLEASE GIVE WILLS A HUG? And then let him cry in peace, okay? Sigh. Jason gets the final rose of the week, and Wills gets sent home because, as Becca tells him sadly, it simply “wasn’t there.” Your loss and The Bachelor’s gain — right, rose lovers? Let’s make this happen.
Four guys left! Before you go, please dry your tears about Wills — or is that just me? — and let me know what you thought about tonight’s episode. Whose hometown are you most looking forward to? Would you get engaged to a virgin? And how much would someone have to pay you to eat a conch pistol? Post your thoughts below! Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna go make a bunch of Wills gifs — it’s therapeutic.
The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
