Helping Jake size them up: “Bachelorette” Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski, the man she chose instead of Jake. Among the 25 are an Air National Guard captain, a flight attendant and one woman who’s afraid of flying. Cocktail party highlights include touch football, and that’s before the competition gets rough. Jake eliminates 10.

The 15 bachelorettes move into the mansion. Six take part in a magazine photo shoot, five accompany Jake to an amusement park and one flies to Palm Springs (with Jake at the controls) for a private Chicago concert, a lakeside dinner, and perhaps a rose. But in a new twist a rose doesn’t guarantee safety. After the rose ceremony – and after a line is crossed that shouldn’t have been 12 women return to the mansion.
