Episode 3 (Season 12)
The Bachelor Season 12 Episode 0 (03/31/08)
On The Bachelor, Chris Harrison informs the girls that there will be one group date and two one-on-one dates. If a gal does not receive a rose on her one-on-one date, she will immediately be sent home.
Holly is the first to receive an invitation to a private date with Matt. They’ll be headed to a private premiere of the new Patrick Dempsey movie, Made of Honor.
Before they could head in to watch the movie, though, they faced an onslaught of paparazzi, answering questions and posing for pictures. The two cuddled together in the theater.
After the film, Matt Grant took Holly back to a hotel room where he tried to get a handle on her feelings for him. She told him that she felt he had the qualities that she was looking for in a husband. Matt worried that they were too comfortable with each other and maybe, were even missing a spark or electricity between them.
However, they ended up in the hot tub together where they made out. Matt Grant gave Holly a rose.
Ten women find out that they'll be heading out on a group date to play rugby with Matt. The only woman not invited was Shayne Lamas, who got a one-on-one date later on.
The girls learn the basics of rugby before jumping into a full out war game.
Right away, Ashlee was knocked down to the ground and then Marshana was injured in a play. Matt Grant was impressed with how the women played that he invited them back to his place for a party.
At the party, Matt spent some time with Robin and kissed her in the hot tub.
He also made his way into a room with Kelly, where she gave him a massage. When he tried to talk to Amanda, their moment was crashed by Kristine and Noelle.
At the end of the night, Matt Grant decided to give the rose to Robin.
On their one-one date with Shayne, she finally revealed to him that her father is Lorenzo Lamas.
He has had concerns that because she's an actress, her intentions are not sincere or she will not be ready to settle down. Shayne Lamas changed his mind and the two kissed.
Matt said that she made him feel like a teenager again and gave her a rose.
At the cocktail party before the rose ceremony, the girls all turn on Robin, for making a play for Matt, despite already having a rose. But now it's elimination time, baby.
- Robin and
- Shayne are already safe.
Matt Grant hands out the remaining roses to:
Kristine, Erin S., and Amy are thus eliminated. Sad.
