'The Bachelor' Recap: Selma Gets Eliminated After Defying Family Norm
Another new episode of "The Bachelor" season 17 aired on Tuesday, February 5. While he was a bit skeptic about finding love on the show, Sean Lowe didn't show any signs of such doubt in the latest outing, which took him and the girls to Alberta, Canada.
Catherine went on the first one-on-one date with Sean. They headed to Jasper National Park and they seemed to have a blast frolicking and rolling around in the snow despite a blizzard. They also had a carriage ride.
Catherine shared a tragic story as she witnessed her friend getting crushed by a falling tree during summer camp when she was 12. Sean said, "I'm crazy about you and can't get enough of you," and they kissed. Sean gave her a rose.
Tierra, Sarah, AshLee, Lindsay, Selma, Lesley and Daniella were in a group date. They had to canoe across a frozen lake, but Lesley was lucky enough to share a canoe with Sean. Sean then invited the girls to jump into the cold water, but Selma turned it down.
After the swin, Tierra fell to the ground, seemingly having a cold shock. She received medical attention, but once again made it to the night date. Sean gave a rose in the group date to Lesley, and then talked to Sarah in private to send her home.
"I wanted it to work so badly but it just hasn't been there," Sean explained. "I'd be lying if I said I wasn't totally hurt and surprised," Sarah admitted. She tearfully said in limo, "I'm completely blindsided. I'm embarrassed about the whole thing."
Desiree got the last one-on-one date card in the episode. She and Sean had to rappel down 400 feet from the top of a mountain. Once arriving at the bottom, they had a picnic. Desiree then challenged Sean to climb a tree.
Opening up about her tough childhood, Desiree revealed that her family lived in a tent five different times. "I didn't grow up with money. Money ... doesn't matter to me at all," so she claimed. Sean said, "I've had so much fun with you today. ... I want you to know how special I think you are," and gave her a rose.
At a cocktail party, Selma decided to bring out the "big guns" by kissing Sean on national TV, something which her traditional family wouldn't be happy about. Lindsay also had a smooch with Sean, while AshLee let Sean blindfold her as a symbol that she would let him lead them into the future.
Later that night, Sean gave the roses to Lindsay, AshLee and Tierra. Selma, despite her effort to win Sean's heart in the last minute, got sent home along with Daniella. "This definitely does not feel good," Selma said, as Daniella admitted, "I'm obviously hurt!"
When "The Bachelor" returns with a new episode next Monday, Sean and the remaining ladies head to St. Croix.
