ABC's repeat "Bachelor" Brad Womack eliminated Alli, a 24-year-old from Ohio, and Jackie, a 27-year-old from New York, on the week six episode of ABC's popular dating reality show.
Here's a recap of the week-six episode:
His first one-on-one date was with Chantal, the 28-year-old from Seattle. This is Chantal's second private date with Brad. The other girls are jealous. "All I can do is be myself, be patient and hope that Chantal gets attacked by monkeys," Michelle, the 30-year-old Salt Lake City mom, said.
Pouring rain didn't stop Chantal and Brad from completing their zip-line date. Brad said he wanted an adventurous date to "take their relationship to new heights." Brad was happy that Chantal didn't let the rain stop her from participating. "That's the confident woman I fell for," he said.
After their adventure, they dried off and cleaned up to have a private picnic dinner. After one bite of food and a sip of wine, the rain came again. They ran to Brad's condo but they were both drenched when they arrived. Brad gave Chantal one of his white suit shirts. Brad liked the way Chantal looked. "Good God... you look amazing. I think this is the hottest I've seen you. Good God," he said. "I would take being rained in with you any day," Chantal said. Brad told her that he didn't like the way she behaved in Las Vegas on the week five episode when she cried and told Brad that she was jealous of the other women. Chantal apologized and said it was just a rough patch and that she wasn't going be high-drama again. Brad gave her a rose. "I did fall in love with Brad tonight," Chantal said during her private interview after the date.
Jackie, Michelle, Emily, Ashley, Shawntel and Britt repelled down a waterfall on the group date. When she realized what the group was doing, Michelle got mad. She and Brad made a pact to never repel with anyone else after their private date where they both repelled for the first time. Jackie, who's afraid of heights, was scared. Brad comforted Jackie. Michelle got annoyed. "It's really annoying to see Brad being so nice to the other girls," Michelle said. When she playfully(?) punched Brad and reminded him of their agreement, Brad said he remembered. He and Michelle repelled down the waterfall together and the pact remained intact.
After repelling, the group hit the hot springs. Brad took Jackie aside and told her he was proud of her for facing her fear of heights and repelling. Jackie said she was proud of herself, too, but wished she had been able to repel with Brad. Brad was disappointed that the girls were jealous of each other, again. In a private conversation, Emily told Brad that she was starting to really like him and she was scared of her feelings. Brad said that made him afraid that Emily would sabotage things. When Michelle told Brad that she was jealous when Chantal came home wearing his shirt after their private date, Brad got mad, again. Michelle said she was surprised that Chantal came home at all. Brad chose not to hand out a rose on the group date. "Quite frankly, my time with the women today and tonight didn't go all that well," Brad said in his private interview.
On the second private date of the episode, Brad and Alli rode horses to a cave where they went exploring. Alli is afraid of bugs, insects and anything "creepy." When Brad and Alli encountered bats, she got very nervous. Brad successfully led her through the cave. They met later for dinner at a private table that seemed to be suspended above pools of water. At one point, their table seemed to be sinking but not as quickly as their conversation. Brad complained that they were just making small talk. "I think you're an amazing woman but, I think at the end of the day, I think we both know that we have a very strong friendship but that's were it ends," Brad said. He didn't give Alli a rose. "Unfortunately I'm not the right guy for Alli," Brad said.
After he sent Alli home, Brad went to his condo to relax and think. Michelle showed up unannounced. "This is a nice surprise," Brad said. Michelle said she missed Brad when he wasn't around. "I miss you too. Badly," Brad said. Michelle said she agreed with Brad's decision to send Alli home. Brad asked if there were any other opinions that Michelle wanted to share. "If you end up with Chantal, it will be a huge mistake," she said. She continued by telling him he needed to get rid of Jackie, Britt and Chantal.
At the cocktail party, Brad told Emily that he was nervous after their conversation. Emily said she was sorry. "I care about you a lot," she said. Brad said he wasn't giving up on Emily and she was worth the fight. Next up, Brad told Michelle that he felt like they took 10 steps back after she came to his condo and listed off the girls who should go home. Michelle told Brad that he asked for her opinion and she gave it to him. "I don't know you as well as I want to, but I know that I'm supposed to be here," Michelle said.
Chantal told Brad at the cocktail party that she loved him. She said she wanted to tell him her feelings when she already had a rose so he wouldn't think she was just trying to make it another week. "I came into tonight's cocktail party with the lowest of lows... Chantal has completely turned my day around," Brad said.
The following six women will appear on the week-seven episode in Anguilla:
Chantal: a 28-year-old executive assistant from Seattle. She slapped Brad "for every woman in America" when she met him on the week one episode. Brad appreciated her "aggressiveness."
Ashley H: a 26-year-old dentist from Philadelphia.
Emily: a 24-year-old hospital event planner from Charlotte, NC. Emily has a daughter and was engaged to a race car driver who died in a place crash.

Michelle: a 30-year-old hair stylist and mother of one from Salt Lake City, Utah.
Eliminated during week six:
Alli: a 24-year-old apparel merchant from Columbus, Ohio. In her limo ride away from Brad, Alli said: "I feel really dumb that I'm crying right now. It's just weird to think about this coming to an end so abruptly... I can honestly tell you that I had, like, feelings for him." Brad sent Alli home during their one-on-one date because he couldn't see him and Alli being more than friends.
Jackie: a 27-year-old artist from New York. "This was a very, very tough decision for me," Brad said. "I think you're one in a million, I really do," he said. Jackie was sad. "Brad's a great guy. I just feel like I fell short... I feel like I constantly, like, put up a wall and, like, try to make sure that nobody can get through it," she said.
Eliminated week five:
Ashley S.: a 26-year-old nanny from New York. She got the first impression rose during week one for telling Brad that she wanted to be his friend. "I feel like they always say the same thing. 'You're going to be such a great wife. You're just not the one for me.'"
Lisa M.: a 24-year-old marketing coordinator from Ottawa, Kan. "I wanted to find love... It's hard to start liking a guy and not have time to express yourself... it just sucks."
Marissa: a 26-year-old sports publicist from Kissimmee, Fla. "It hurts to have to leave feeling like I was rejected. I put myself out there time and time again and it wasn't right. I didn't fit. I left behind a lot to come here."
Eliminated week four:
Lindsay: a 25-year-old first grade teacher from Plano, Texas. "It's disappointing that I'm going home tonight but I'm just not the girl for Brad. Rejection is always hard. But I think I was true to myself and I think my dad is going to be so proud of me for being the daughter that he and my mom both raised me to be."
Meghan: a 30-year-old fashion marketer from New York. "I'm totally bummed out... it's a blow to the ego... maybe my walls are too high." She and Brad had a conversation earlier in the episode where Brad said he admired Meghan's independence but felt like he wasn't getting to know her very well.
Stacey: a 26-year-old bartender from Boston. "I want to be in love with somebody. I don't know when I'm going to find the right guy. Hopefully soon. I'm sick of dating."
Eliminated during week three:
Madison: the 25-year-old model from Brooklyn, who wore fake Vampire fangs in the first two episodes, walked away during the elimination rose ceremony. Madison said: "I came here because it sounded fabulous... but it's not so easy as just walking into a fairy tale and walking out with Prince Charming... Things may have worked out very differently if I'd come in and shown all my cards and been the real me from the very beginning... There's every chance I'll wake up tomorrow and wonder what the heck I just did... I just let a great man walk into the arms of some other girl."
Sarah P: a 27-year-old real estate broker from Denver, had a test for Brad during week one. Sarah asked Brad to get down on one knee and repeat after her. She said "Will you Marry Me," which Brad repeated. Sarah said "yes" and Brad admitted that wasn't so hard. "Everybody wants to come here and find love. It doesn't happen for everybody. I have so much happiness and love to offer. When you put yourself out there, you hope for something to come back but sometimes it doesn't. Not being chosen, that really hurts. Rejection sucks."
Kimberly: a 27-year-old marketing coordinator from Charlotte, NC. "I have no regrets. I wouldn't have done a thing differently. There just wasn't that connection. I think he was intimated by me. I'm talented, smart, successful. Some guys find me attractive. The list could go on. I could turn around tomorrow and start dating someone else and be fine with it. (Expletive deleted) Brad! His loss."
Eliminated week two of season 15:
Raichel: This 29-year-old manscaper from Fullerton, Calif. waxed Brad's wrist on the week-one episode. He said it hurt. A lot. About being eliminated, Raichel said: "I don't feel like I should be sitting here upset... I came here to fall in love. I didn't come here to get so upset by another girl." She and Melissa had several arguments during the two episodes.
Keltie: The 28-year-old Radio City Rockette from Hollywood showed Brad how to do high kicks during week one. "If they gave out an Oscar for worst dater ever, it would go to this girl. I'm the worst. I'm just so awkward. Honestly, I don't know if love is in the cards for me."
Melissa: The 32-year-old waitress from Lake Worth, Fla. was still complaining about Raichel in her exit interview. "I think there are several girls who targeted me... I had a really hard time in this house."

Here's a recap of the week-four episode:
Michelle started the episode with a mysterious black eye. She said she just woke up with a swollen eye and a bruised lower eyelid. She guessed it was stress or perhaps she punched herself while she was sleeping. "I wish I was the one who gave Michelle her black eye," Ashley S. said. Did Michelle's eye issue earn her sympathy from Brad? Not really. "That's weird," he said.
Brad's first one-on-one date was with Chantal. Chantal married her high school sweetheart when she was young and admitted that she's had very little dating experience since her divorce. Brad and Chantal took a helicopter ride to the ocean, boarded a boat and put on special dive-like gear that made it possible for them to walk along the ocean's floor. "I really, really, really don't want to get in the water," a nervous Chantal said. She faced her fears and ended up loving the ocean. "I think that I could be Chantal Womack, definitely," she said. After swimming, Chantal and Brad retired to a romantic private cabana where they shared a meal and talked while rain poured down outside. Thanks to the rain, they were able to spend extra time together. Brad said he wanted to grab Chantal's hand and run away. Chantal said she never wanted to leave their private cabana. She got a rose.
Brad took Jackie, Ashley H., Ashley S., Stacey, Lindsay, Alli, Meghan, Lisa and Brit on a group date to Dr. Drew's radio show. Michelle was glad not to be invited on the group date. "There's a really good chance that if I don't get my own date this week Brad might get his own black eye."
Brad told the women on the group date that he'd never cheated on a girlfriend. He wanted to know if they had ever been unfaithful. Stacey confessed that she had cheated on a boyfriend once. Brad thanked her for being honest. When Brad was asked what his type was, he said he didn't have one. "I want to form a very true connection... I want someone I can be myself around," he said. While swimming at Brad's bachelor pad after the radio show, the women competed for alone time with Brad. They kept interrupting eachother's private conversations. No one thought she had enough one-on-one time with Brad on the group date. Britt told Brad that she had a crush on him. They chatted and kissed until Ashley H. walked up. Ashely told Brad that she hated watching him with other girls and hearing other girls talk about their feelings. Brad encouraged her not to be frustrated. When she said it would be easier to cope if she pretended she wasn't that into him, Brad told her, "I'm not going to let you take a step back... you gotta hang in there." Brad wanted to show Ashely H. that he still cared for her by giving her a rose but when he brought the rose to the hot tub where several women were standing, Ashely said "this is awkward." Brad got mad and said he was changing his plan. He gave Britt the rose."I think I may have ruined what Brad and I have," Ashley said.
When Brad picked up Michelle he asked to talk to Ashley H. before leaving with Michelle. "You and I do have something very real," Brad told Ashley. Ashley said she was having a hard time dealing with her emotions and she thanked Brad for comforting her. "This is going to give me the strength to get through," she said. Michelle was "pissed" that Ashley was taking time away from Michelle's date. Chantal reminded Michelle that she behaved the same way during the first group date and Brad took time away from the other girls to comfort an upset Michelle.
Brad and Michelle took a helicopter ride to the top of a tall building. Brad told Michelle that they were going to repel down the side of a building and then have a poolside dinner. Michelle, who's scared of heights was "freaking out." "I can't do this. There's no way," she said. Brad was putting on a brave face for Michelle but he told cameras, "This is the scariest thing I've ever attempted to do in my entire life." They made it safely to the ground and even shared a kiss on the way. Over dinner, Brad said he wanted to meet Michelle's daughter. Michelle said she would love that. She got a rose. "I can see my life with Michelle working out very well... I see this happening. I do," Brad said. "I think it's time for all the girls to go home. He is mine," Michelle said.
At the cocktail party, Brad gave Emily a gift basket. Brad and Emily had a one-on-one date on the week three episode. The other women were jealous. "It was an ego check," Meghan said. Chantal agreed. "The kissing thing I came to expect... You don't prepare yourself to watch him pull out a gift for another girl... It feels like a punch in the stomach." Brad led Emily to a private spot at the house. He spread out a blanket, poured her some wine and told her that he wanted to recreate their wine-tasting date. "I've been looking forward to seeing Emily all week," Brad said. Emily seemed surprised but pleased.
