PASSIONATE DATES, LOVE CONFESSIONS AND UNEXPECTED BREAKUPS IN VIETNAM HAVE COLTON QUESTIONING ALL THE WOMEN AS WELL AS HIMSELF
ON ABC’S ‘THE BACHELOR,’ MONDAY, FEB. 11
“2306” – Oneyka and Nicole’s shattering showdown continues as Colton tries to find an escape from the ordeal. After the rose ceremony, the remaining bachelorettes travel to the lush, tropical paradise of Vietnam’s Cam Ranh coast. The first one-on-one date is captured by a woman, who has magic chemistry with Colton. Their spa date reignites their passion, but deeper issues need resolving. A group date at the historic Hai Thai Ancient House proves to be an adrenaline rush for the women, as they are trained in the Vietnamese martial art of Vovinam and then fight for love in a series of intense sparring matches. The last one-on-one date leads to an awkward, but honest conversation, and one woman dramatically declares her growing feelings to Colton in a late-night tryst. However, Colton’s ever-present fear about picking someone who is not ready for a proposal continues to hang over him on “The Bachelor,” MONDAY, FEB. 11 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.

Colton’s shares a sexy, rejuvenating spa date with a beautiful, smitten woman who hasn’t had much quality time with Colton. Their spark is definitely intact, but is their attraction only skin deep? At dinner that night, the couple gets serious; but will it be enough for her to get a rose?
A wild group date kicks off with Colton showing off his sexy moves against a group of martial artists at the Hai Thai Ancient House. The women are soon learning the basic techniques, and their skills run the gamut from beast mode to struggling fighter. But when the instructors announce that the bachelorettes will pair off in vigorous competition in the name of love, the drama and action ramp up with Chris Harrison and “The Bachelor Vietnam” host Khôi Trần doing the play-by-play honors. The powerful clashes escalate until Colton decides to take matters into his own hands.
The after-party provides its own one-two punch. One disillusioned woman has a heart-wrenching talk with Colton and has some cautionary advice for the Bachelor: Be sure these remaining ladies actually are ready to get engaged. Colton is reminded again of what he has feared all along. He may choose someone who deep down isn’t ready to get married.
Colton’s final one-on-one date is with a seemingly shy woman who opens up about the most intimate of matters. How will this affect the way he views his future with this bachelorette?
But the night isn’t over yet and Colton gets a late-night visit from an impatient bachelorette, who feels compelled to reveal her skyrocketing emotions toward him. Will her declaration of love be accepted?
Colton needs to make a tough choice at the rose ceremony, but it comes with another ominous warning that there are women left who are not ready for a proposal. Totally thrown, he confronts the remaining bachelorettes with the devastating admonition he received. Who is here for marriage, and who is here for the wrong reasons? Colton will have to find out.
