Indeed, Becca and some of her suitors jetted off to this location for the first travel dates of Season 14.
They kicked off with Kufrin and Garrett Yrigoyen enjoying some one-on-one time, shopping and eating and getting to know each other better than ever before.
(Of course, viewers got to know Yrigoyen better than ever before just a couple weeks ago after social media posts were revealed in which mocked Parkland high school students, liberal women, trans people and undocumented immigrants.
This week marked the most screen time Garrett has received since his scandalous views went public and he apologized.)
After Becca admitted how much Garrett reminds her of home and how much her late father would have loved him, the two hit the bobsled slopes with some former Olympians.
At dinner that evening, they opened up about their past relationships, with Yrigoyen confessing he had actually married before — and that he got divorced after two months!
Did Becca consider this a red flag? No.
The Bachelorette talkedabouther her “really, really strong feelings” toward him and then Garrett a rose and the two ended their night dancing in front of the crowd at a country concert.
ELSEWHERE this week…
Lincoln, who was just convicted of sexual assault, said he thinks the Earth is flat.
The men also took part in lumberjack activities during the group date, which featured Jean Blanc telling Becca during the after-party that he was falling in love with her.
Yes, in love.
Becca sent him home because she didn’t feel the same way, prompting Jean Blanc to claim he didn’t actually mean what he said, which made Becca very angry.
She felt disrespected and manipulated and therefore ended the night early… without giving out the group date rose.
(At this same gathering, Colton confronted Jordan after the male model paraded around in gold underwear. Because that’s just how he rollos.
Colton said he was tired of clowns and thought Becca deserved better, but Jordan seemed generally unfazed by his accusations. He just wanted to strut.)
Still irritated her interaction with Jean Blanc, Becca wasn’t having much fun on her one-on-one date with Wills.
She was still feeling “off” from the Jean Blanc run-in, but Wills helped her work through these emotions and ended up with a rose.
The same could not be said for Mike and Ryan, however, who were sent packing during the first rose ceremony.
And then, after canceling the cocktail party, Becca also gave her designer boot to Nick and Christon.
Did she choose correctly this week?
Should she stay as far away from Garrett as humanly possible?
Did she overreact to Jean Blanc’s wavering feelings?
