There were more men than usual on this week’s episode of The Bachelor, as Jimmy Kimmel dropped by to meddle in Chris Soules‘ affairs. Luckily, that didn’t deter Chris from his kissing rampage.
The episode began with the Jimmy Kimmel Live! host (gotta love the ABC cross-promotional machine at work) waking up Prince Farming. Kimmel then introduced himself to the ladies with, “Hello, sister-wives.” Yes, this is going to be a great episode.
After introducing the “amazing” jar, which castmembers have to fill with dollars whenever they use their favorite adjective, Kimmel sent Kaitlyn out on the first one-on-one. Certainly, Chris and his gal weren’t expecting to spend the day shopping for bulk items at Costco. But we did learn a thing or two about Kaitlyn when she said of filling a hot tub with ketchup, “I’ve done weirder things.”
The pair prepared dinner for Kimmel, and Kaitlyn let it slip that she once dated a farmer who was more “legit” than Chris. Talk about hitting the man where it hurts. By the end of the evening, Kimmel was clearly on Team Kaitlyn, especially as she’s such a good sport about the fantasy suite dates. “Let’s have a threesome, guys, come on,” the talk show host joked. Needless to say, Kaitlyn got the rose and is a definite frontrunner.
Next, the show channeled its inner Survivor by sending the girls on a farm-themed obstacle course, which involved drinking warm goat’s milk. (Yes, Chris is a farmer. We get it.) Carly won the blue ribbon, which led to a party with an unreal amount of kissing. Seriously, this dude really loves kissing, even when its preceded by a painful icebreaker like, “You’re a man, and I’m a woman.” Thanks, Carly, for that fascinating lesson on gender.
Not everyone was thrilled by the smooch-fest, mind you. Mackenzie kiss-shamed him with a thoroughly awkward talking-to, while Becca put her lips on lockdown, which apparently helped her snag the rose. Chris is all about the mixed messages.

The next one-on-one involved Whitney and Chris strangely deciding to crash a random couple’s wedding. Yes, because why wouldn’t a pair of newlyweds want some reality stars to steal the spotlight on their big day? But Chris appreciated that Whitney helped him out when his small-talk skills were seriously lacking at the reception, and so she got the date rose.
Were you just thinking to yourself, “I could really use some more rapid-fire kissing scenes”? You’re in luck, as Chris resumed kissing with abandon at the pool party. Things got quite heated with Jade on the bed, and then Jillian monopolized time in the hot tub, which left Ashley I. in tears. Luckily, Ash was able to make out with him within minutes after her crying jag, so all was right with the world.
At the rose ceremony, here’s who received flowers: Jade, Samantha, Juelia, Mackenzie (despite her earlier lecture), Kelsey, Britt, Megan, Carly, Ashley S. (how is this wacky character still on the show?!), Becky, Jillian and Ashley I. That meant curtains for teacher Tracy, other teacher Trina and bartender Amber, who cut her tearful post-ceremony interview short.
Who do you think is the current frontrunner? Do you think Chris is kissing too many people? Are you wondering what happened with all that ketchup? Let us know in the comments!
