Tensions mount among the 12 remaining bachelorettes and jealousy reigns when it's revealed that there will be two special one-on-one dates — each with a rose at stake — and one group date. First, one woman's elation at being alone with Jake turns to apprehension when the couple's chopper lands on a towering bridge nestled in the San Gabriel Mountains. She becomes a nervous wreck when it becomes apparent that they will bungee jump off the Bridge to Nowhere. Next, eight bachelorettes visit the famous Jon Lovitz Comedy Club. After sharing a few jokes with the women, Lovitz explains that they will be the ones performing stand up in his club that night. Later, Jake takes the women to a VIP after party and tries to get alone time with some of them. But the night takes a shocking turn when one bachelorette pushes him too far. The next morning, Jake picks up a lucky bachelorette with a helicopter right in the mansion's driveway. As the rest of the women enviously look on, they fly off to San Diego's Sea World for a memorable one-on-one date. A tension-filled cocktail party reveals a division in the house, with one woman dramatically set against the rest of the bachelorettes. At the end of the contentious night, nine women continue on the fairytale journey to win Jake's heart. And to make things more interesting, the student on each team will be the only one whose weight counts at weigh-in.

They rented an apartment for a year before finding a six bedroom "fixer upper."

Delores, 49, and her children Joel, 18, Gabrielle, 16, Deborah, 15, and Anschel, 10, began building scaffolding, hanging drywall, installing windows, and countless other repairs. But even after five and a half years of work, the family’s home is unlivable. Now it’s up to Ty and the design team to build Delores and her family the strong, safe home that will support this family and their dreams.
