‘The Bachelor’ Episode Guide (Jan. 22): A Woman Receives a Critical Phone Call

“Episode 2204” (01/22/18) – Arie and the 15 remaining bachelorettes leave the Bachelor mansion behind and begin a cross-country trip to continue their search for love. First stop? South Lake Tahoe, Nevada! Seinne gets the first one-on-one date and joins Arie on a sheer adrenaline date: parasailing.

Meanwhile, one woman gets a critical phone call that might change her romantic journey. A dozen ladies hike into the snowy wilderness on a survival-themed group date where they get a crash course in roughing it in the woods from professional survivalists.

Arie invites Bekah M. on a romantic horseback ride through the picturesque mountainside of Lake Tahoe. However, he is about to learn a closely guarded secret about Bekah that might put an end to the couple’s possible happy ending. Finally, one bachelorette interrupts the rose ceremony to plead her case to Arie and enrages the rest of the women, on “The Bachelor,” MONDAY, JAN. 22 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.

Fans can go to ABC.com/BFL and the ESPN Fantasy App to play The Bachelor Fantasy League, which allows players to challenge their family, friends and #BachelorNation in predicting weekly events, the last four women and the one who will receive the final rose. The game is presented this season by New Olay Whips. No purchase is necessary to play. See official rules at abc.com/bfl for full details.

Seinne and Arie’s chemistry is simmering just below the surface, but that could change when the couple takes off on a wild parasailing adventure, which the rest of the women jealously watch through binoculars. Seinne confesses at a romantic dinner that night that happy endings have been few and far between for her. Will she get her fairytale ending with Arie? The two finish a giddy night filled with excitement dancing to the country music of LANCO.

Twelve ladies will be put to the test as they hike into the woods with survivalists Mykel Hawke and Ruth England-Hawke, who genuinely test their survival skills with some very unpleasant food and drink. The bachelorettes are attempting to track down a hot tub oasis in the middle of nowhere. The competition gets fierce when Krystal ramps up the drama when she sees Arie share his affection with other women. At the after party, Krystal is still on the rampage, confronting two ladies whom she feels “bullied” her earlier and planning her revenge.

The vivacious Bekah M. joins Arie for what should be a special day as they nestle in each other’s arms in a secluded hot tub in the woods. However, at a romantic dinner Bekah M. shares a stunning revelation about herself. Will Arie be able to look past this admission to continue their budding relationship or is this the end of the road for the lovebirds?

Panic sets in the next night as Arie makes a surprising decision. Who will stay? Who will go? Nothing goes according to plan. Next stop? Ft. Lauderdale, Florida!
