It's the second week of the new season of "The Bachelorette" and the remaining 17 bachelors are champing at the bit to get a one-on-one date with Ali Fedotowsky. This week, two of the guys will get that chance, while several others have to settle for a group date, and the remaining bachelors will get no date at all.
It's destination Hollywood for Ali's solo date with lucky Frank. The couple takes off in a classic blue convertible, but the date stalls when the car develops trouble on the freeway. Not to be deterred, the two catch a cab and stroll down Hollywood Blvd., where they are swarmed by paparazzi.
Then it is off for a very special treat.
"No one gets to do this, but we do," Ali says. "Anybody can walk down Hollywood Blvd., but not everyone gets to do what Frank and I are doing."
What they are doing is making the climb through a locked gate to the Hollywood sign, where they share this season's first kiss.
Meanwhile, back at the mansion, tensions are already running high, as Craig M. and Jesse have to be separated before they come to blow. The next day, 12 sexy guys meet Ali at a beautiful Malibu beach house where they will strike a pose for a charity calendar photo shoot. A few unlucky bachelors find their wardrobe leaves little to the imagination; however the guys do their best to impress the Bachelorette, none more so than Ty, who steals the show when he takes time to serenade Ali.
Later Jonathan shares the drama in the house, going so far as to call one man "dangerous." With a rose at stake, each guy fights for time with Ali.
Next up for a solo date is Jesse, who is wowed when he meets Ali at a private jet to fly off to Las Vegas. Ali invites Jesse to an extravagant dinner and a private concert by one of her favorites, English jazz-pop singer Jamie Cullum. Although the date oozes with romance, can Jesse show Ali he's more than a pretty face, or will he be sent packing?
Then it is back to Los Angeles for the rose ceremony where the number of bachelors will be slashed from 15 to 14.
