ABC's repeat "Bachelor" Brad Womack sent Britt, the skinny 25-year-old from Washington, home early and eliminated Michelle, the 30-year-old mom of one from Salt Lake City, at the rose ceremony on the week-seven episode set in Anguilla.
Michelle refused to talk to Brad as he walked her to the limo. "I have an intense physical attraction to her but that would have worn off and her intensity and the way we kept butting heads that would have become a volatile relationship," Brad said. Michelle laid down on the limo's backseat. She remained quiet.
Brad told host Chris Harrison that he didn't want a cocktail party before the rose ceremony because he knew exactly who was going to pick. Chantal and Michelle were worried. Both thought there was a chance they could go home.
The following four women will continue to the week-eight show where Brad will visit the women's hometowns and meet their families.
Never miss a local story.
Shawntel: a 25-year-old funeral director from Chico, Calif.
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.
Ashley H: a 26-year-old dentist from Philadelphia.
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."
Here's recap of the week-seven episode:
There were three one-on-one dates and one group date. The one-on-one dates were unusual because Brad did not hand out roses. On the group date, Brad had one rose to give.
Emily got the first one-on-one date. Brad took her to a private island. "I get nervous around you," Brad said. Emily said she got nervous, too. Over dinner, Brad asked if he could meet Emily's daughter if he visited her hometown. "I am overprotective, and I've really never introduced her to anyone I've dated," Emily said. She said she didn't want to confuse her daughter. Brad said it would be "huge" if he could meet her. Emily didn't say no, but she said it would be scary. "I'm in a really hard situation. I don't know what to do," Emily told Brad. Brad told Emily he was serious about her and he was willing to break the show's rules. "I'm giving you a rose... We're going to your hometown," he said. "I fell very, very hard tonight," Brad said. "Right now, in this moment, I feel like I'm the happiest person in the world," Emily said. Previews for next week's episode showed Brad meeting Emily's daughter.
Shawntel, the funeral director, got the second one-on-one date. Brad and Shawntel visited a farmer's market during the day and had a romantic dinner near the the ocean at night. Shawntel told Brad that she was falling in love with him. Brad talked about his dad and his feelings of abandonment when his dad left. Brad said he felt really comfortable with Shawntel. "I love the fact that I can just be," Brad said. Shawntel said, "I'm falling in love with someone who is treating me so well... It just feels so right."
Brad's last one-on-one date was with Britt. It was the first one-on-one date that Britt had with Brad. A yacht picked up the couple and took them on a tour of the island. The other women were jealous. Michelle said, "It seems like a waste of a one-on-one." Michelle said she couldn't see Britt and Brad getting married, in fact "I don't know if I even see them friending each other on Facebook," Michelle said. After Britt and Brad jumped off some rocks and into the ocean, Britt told Brad that she had a hard time showing her emotions. "I don't have that urge to just grab her and kiss her," Brad told cameras between his swimming date and his dinner date with Britt. At dinner, Brad was honest with Britt. "I have to tell you that I don't see a future with you and I," he said. Britt said she thought more time might bring them closer together. Brad said he was "crucified" last time he was on the show for stringing girls along. "I think it's time to say goodbye," Brad told Britt. "There's never a good moment to say goodbye," Brad told cameras as viewers watched Britt board a small lifeboat and head back to the girls' hotel suite. She told the girls that she was headed home early. "Brad has everything I ever wanted in a guy," Britt said as she packed.
For the group date, Brad picked up Michelle, Chantal and Ashley at 2 a.m. They went to a Sports Illustrated swimsuit photo shoot. Chantal and Ashley took their tops off for their photos. Michelle kept her top on, and she said she wanted to take her photos with Brad. She and Brad kissed while they laid down in the sand and waves lapped over them. Chantal and Ashley were jealous. "Something tells me this day is going to get worse, not better," Brad said when the photo shoot ended and he saw how hurt Chantal and Ashley were.
Over poolside cocktails, Ashley told Brad that she was feeling disconnected and she wanted Brad to do what was right for him. Brad was sad that she was upset, and felt like she was putting up walls. Chantal, who last week told Brad that she loved him, said her love was being put to the test on the group date. Brad told Michelle that he thought she was "a very strong, almost volatile woman." He said he was afraid he and Michelle would always being going around and around. "You're stubborn and so am I," Brad said. Chantal told Brad that she felt like he was shutting down. "I'm being respectful," Brad said. He took Ashley aside again and tried to tell her that things were O.K. "Don't send me home," she said. Brad walked away and got the rose. He gave it to Ashley and she hugged him. "I care for you more than I can say," Brad said. "Trust in what we have, please." When Michelle and Chantal saw that Brad had given the rose to Ashley, they were upset. Michelle gave Brad the stink eye and Chantal burst into tears. Brad asked Chantal to come with him for a private conversation but she refused. Michelle and Ashley left to give Brad a moment alone with Chantal. "If you can't choose me in one out of three girls, just send me home," Chantal said.
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 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."
