Scoop: THE BACHELOR on ABC - Monday, February 17, 2014As the six final women make themselves at home on South Beach, one bachelorette struggles with a decision she might have to make that would affect everyone on this adventure. After travelling around the world, Juan Pablo has a moving reunion with his daughter, Camila, and shares his growing feelings for one particular woman with his cousin. A week of "shock and awe" ends with Juan Pablo making a crucial decision about which four women will have the opportunity to take him home to meet their families, on "The Bachelor," MONDAY, FEBRUARY 17 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Juan Pablo personally delivers the first date card to one surprised woman - Sharleen - and lets her know that she has a one-on-one date in his hometown. Things heat up on board a private yacht as the two snuggle and share passionate kisses and red-hot chemistry. Their date continues on a private island which only enhances the connection between the two. Is love blooming or will something get in the way of this blossoming romance?

On his second individual date, Juan Pablo takes Nikki to a local florist to pick out some flowers - but they are not for her. Nikki will be the lucky woman to give the bouquet to Camila at her dance recital. The stunned bachelorette arrives at the dance studio and meets the Bachelor's parents and Camila's mom. The pressure really mounts as Juan Pablo introduces Camila to his "special friend" Nikki. But will Nikki's nerves sabotage the crucial meeting, and what does Camila think of Nikki? Later that night, the couple has a private picnic under the bright lights of Marlin Stadium. Is the date a "home run" or an "out?"

An emotional group date with the other four women -- Andi, Chelsie, Clare and Renee - begins on a private island. One fortunate bachelorette, who gets the rose, also will get special alone time with Juan Pablo. Everyone else will be sent back to the hotel. Andi and Clare break down as they relate touching sentiments and stories. The lucky lady who does get the rose spends the remainder of the day and evening with the Bachelor, leaving three jealous, seething women. A magical night in Miami awaits the happy bachelorette, including multi-platinum Latin music superstar Romeo Santos serenading the couple with a special musical performance - "Cancioncitas de Amor" -- off his upcoming much anticipated Sony Music Latin album "Formula Vol. 2" (Feb. 25 release), while they dance the night away.

Back at the hotel, things get ugly when the three rejected bachelorettes and Nikki get into an argument. But the situation escalates when Nikki gets into it with another woman and they face off in one of the most explosive confrontations of the season. The deep freeze between these two ladies continues into the cocktail party, culminating in the ultimate awkward silent stand-off.

The drama of the rose ceremony and the need to say good-bye to certain bachelorettes takes its toll on Juan Pablo. He is overcome with emotion and unable to celebrate with the four remaining women whose hometowns he will be visiting next week.

The six remaining women are:
Andi, 26, assistant district attorney, Atlanta, GA
Chelsie, 24, science educator, Columbus, OH
Clare, 32, hairstylist, Sacramento, CA
Nikki, 26, pediatric nurse, Kansas City, MO
Renee, 32, real estate agent, Sarasota, FL
Sharleen, 29, opera singer, Heidelberg, Germany
