‘The Bachelorette’ Episode Guide (June 26): Rachel and the Bachelors Travel to Oslo, Norway

“Episode 1305” (06/26/17) – Kenny and Lee continue their compelling and impassioned confrontation during the spelling-bee group date after-party, but Rachel sends a message by what man she rewards the coveted group date rose.

The oyster culture of Bluffton, South Carolina, provides Rachel and Jack Stone with a romantic backdrop for their one-on-one date that ends in a surprise. A distraught Bachelorette goes straight to her rose ceremony and while the past week has been tough for her, it has brought her clarity.

The lucky remaining men will begin the international leg of their journey as they head off to picturesque Oslo, Norway, on the special two-night event, on “The Bachelorette,” beginning MONDAY, JUNE 26 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network.

Editors’ note: ABC will air two back-to-back episodes on Monday, June 26 (Episode 1305), and Tuesday, June 27 (Episode 1306). Monday, July 3, ABC will air an encore presentation of Episode 1306.

Fans can go to ABC.com/BFL and the ESPN Fantasy App to play The Bachelorette Fantasy League, which allows players to challenge their family, friends and #BachelorNation in predicting weekly events, the final four men and the one who will receive the final rose.

Rachel wastes no time once in Oslo, picking one man for the first international date. The couple explore the city and then ascend up the dizzying height of an Olympic ski jump where Rachel reveals they will be rappelling down. After a day of adventure, they connect over a romantic dinner during which the bachelor reveals something that might change the course of Rachel’s journey.

The next day a group of suitors are immersed in one of Norway’s biggest sports: handball. They divide into teams and prepare for a powerful match against one another. At the after party, Rachel progresses with her connections to the men, but a member of that day’s losing team leaves a bad taste in her mouth.

And on the much-anticipated two-on-one date between two bitter rivals, one man causes the more emotional guy to settle the score once and for all in one of the most riveting and shocking confrontations ever on the show. How will it end? Who will go home or will Rachel clean house?

The 15 remaining men suitors are:
– Adam, 27, a real estate agent from Dallas, TX
– Alex, 28, an information systems supervisor from Grosse Pointe Park, MI
– Anthony, 26, an education software manager from Chicago, IL
