Scoop: THE BACHLORETTE on ABC - Sunday, June 1, 2014
A two-night Bachelorette special event begins as Andi hits the road with her 16 remaining bachelors to the beautiful coastal city of Santa Barbara, California. Nick V., who has had his share of doubts about this journey, will get a chance to ease his worries on a day-long tour of the city with Andi. Twelve guys get the date of a lifetime when they discover they will be singing with R&B icons "Boyz II Men," but are stunned to find out it will be in front of a live concert audience. J J and Andi take a leap into the very far future when they are turned into a sweet 80-year-old couple by Hollywood makeup artists and proceed to fool the Santa Barbara citizens. Meanwhile, one bachelor receives devastating news that brings his search for love to a halt, but how will Andi react? And a major confrontation between some of the men brings questions about whether one of them is here just for a good time, on "The Bachelorette," SUNDAY, JUNE 1 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. The second part of "The Bachelorette" special event, "Episode 1004," will air on MONDAY, JUNE 2 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET).
Nick V. spends a casual day with Andi riding bikes and hiking to a private perch in the mountains, culminating in a private dinner in the clock tower of the Santa Barbara courthouse. His misgivings gradually fade as he realizes how easily he could fall in love with the Bachelorette. But will she feel the same?
Twelve unsuspecting men get the thrill of their lives when they realize that they will be singing with the award-winning R&B group "Boyz II Men," harmonizing with them on one of their biggest hits, "I'll Make Love to You." The bachelors hit more than a few sour notes while rehearsing with the singers and then are left reeling when they are told they will be singing live on stage at one of the group's concerts. One guy has perfect pitch, but the others are trying to calm their nerves. A rose is still up for grabs at the group date after party and the men turn up the heat. Andi gets a first kiss from one man reaffirming their connection and sparks begin to fly with another passionate bachelor.
Tall, good-looking J J joins Andi on an unusual date to discover what it means for "love to be timeless." The couple ages 50 years with the help of Hollywood make-up artists and spends the day looking elderly, but remaining young at heart, as they interact with people in the street. Will Andi see her future with this "old soul?"
Back at the mansion, one of the men is the recipient of some shocking news that ends his journey. What will this mean to the other men and Andi? At the cocktail party, one man steps up with a bold gesture that might backfire instead of impress the Bachelorette.
