TV blog: The Bachelor Sean Lowe sends Kacie B, Kristy and Taryn home

Sean Lowe kicks off the third week of "The Bachelor" with a one-on-one date with Lesley M., a 25-year-old Washington, D.C. political consultant from Arkansas. The couple broke the Guinness World Record for the longest on screen kiss. They locked lips for more than 3 minutes and Lesley got a rose, so she'll continue to next week's show. The kiss took place in front of the Guinness World Record museum and fans were cheering them on during the countdown. Lesley said is was hard not to laugh and a bit awkward with so many people watching them. Sean said it wasn't a difficult record to break.

Twelve of the other women battling for roses go on a group date with Sean to the beach. Things get competitive quickly when show host Chris Harrison introduces a losing-team-goes-home volleyball match. "I hate that the losing team has to go home," Sean said. Six girls leave the date before the sun goes down.

During the evening portion of the group date, Desiree, a 26-year-old bridal stylist from L.A., gets some alone time with Sean. Sean tells her that he loves her confidence and her zest for life. Amanda, a 26-year-old fitness model from California, and Desiree seem to have some drama but I'm not sure why. Kacie B. decides to tell Sean about the Desiree and Amanda drama and Sean is confused as to why Kacie is getting involved. "I want you to act like Kacie, not like this crazy person I'm seeing," Sean said.

Moments before Sean picks up AshLee for their one-on-one date, Tierra, a 24-year-old from Denver, falls down the stairs. When Sean arrives he talks to Tierra and she seems confused and disoriented. Sean calls for EMTs, who arrive and want to take her to the hospital but Tierra refuses.

"I'm worried about Tierra but I'm definitely disappointed that it happened on my one-on-one date with Sean," AshLee said. When Tierra won't go to the hospital, the girls start wondering if she really fell or if she's just playing the victim.

Sean, a 29-year-old Texan, originally appeared as a bachelor on Emily Maynard's season of "The Bachelorette."

Eliminated on week three:

Upon being eliminated, Kacie B. said: "I really wanted this to work." Sean told her that he tried to move her out of the friend zone but he just didn't feel anything romantic for her. Before the rose ceremony, he asked to speak with her for a minute, and he let her go without forcing her to stand through the rose ceremony. The 25-year-old from Tennessee, has appeared on "The Bachelor" before. She was a bachelorette on Ben's season and she and Sean met in New York at a post-Bachelor party and clicked as friends. Kacie arrived on this season's show as a surprise to see if she and Sean could form a romantic bond.

Taryn, a 30-year-old from Oregon, said "Maybe I wasn't sweet enough for him."

Kristy, a 25-year-old Ford model. "I wish I would have found love here but you can't force something that isn't there," she said.

Continuing to week four:

Leslie H, a 29-year-old poker dealer.

Tierra, a 24-year-old from Denver

Catherine, a 26-year-old from Seattle

Daniella, a 24-year-old from San Francisco

Robyn, a 24-year-old engineer in Houston. She fell down doing back flips out of the limo on episode one.

AshLee F, a 32-year-old professional organizer from Houston.

Lesley M., a 25-year-old Washington, D.C. political consultant from Arkansas, says she's a modern Southern belle.

Lindsay, a 24-year-old substitute teacher in Montana, show stepped out of the limo in a wedding gown in the first episode.


Diana, a 31-year-old stylist in Salt Lake City Utah and mom to two girls. "I'm sad to not have more time with him," she said.

Brooke, a 25-year-old community organizer from Pittsburgh. "Love just was not here. It wasn't," she said.

Katie, a 27-year-old yoga teacher in Charlotte, chose to leave the show during the season's first group date.


Kelly, a 28-year-old cruise ship entertainer from Nashville, sang for Sean during their introduction. She was embarrassed to be eliminated. "I feel like, who'd want to date the crazy girl that sings a song for Sean and gets kicks off 'The Bachelor' the first week," she said.

Paige, a 25-year-old New York jumbotron operator, also failed to receive a rose when she appeared on season 3 of "The Bachelor Pad." She felt embarrassed to be eliminated so quickly from both shows. "When you fail again, that sucks... It's really sad," she said.

Ashley H, a 25-year-old fashion model, told Sean that her blue dress matched his eyes. I guess he was unimpressed. "The devastation, I try not to let it sink in but it hurts," she said.

Lauren, a 27-year-old journalist from Rhode Island, told Sean about her Italian family. Her dad told Lauren to tell Sean, "If you break my heart he's going to break your legs." I guess the threat was a bad idea.

Ashley P., a 28-year-old Michigan stylist and fan of "Fifty Shades of Grey," said: "It's a little bit of a bumsky." She then did a little dance and hiked up her dress to show Sean what he was missing. "Mom, don't be mad," she said in her exit interview.

Keriann, a 29-year-old entrepreneur from Florida, told Sean she drove over 2,775 miles to meet him. "That's so flattering." Sean said. I guess flattery will get you no where with Sean.

Lacey, a 24-year-old student in California, gave Sean a piece of lace so he'd remember her name. Maybe he still forgot to call it out during the elimination ceremony?
