“Episode 1403” – Becca looks to recover after last week’s drama as she takes six gentlemen on a spa date, where they unexpectedly must offer the services to some of the Bachelorette’s close friends from the most recent season of “The Bachelor.” Chris joins Becca at the iconic Capitol Records studios where GRAMMY Award-winning artist Richard Marx not only sings to the couple but tasks them to write heartfelt lyrics about each other. One hopeful bachelor has a freak accident which could have terrible consequences. A group of men meet Becca at a football field to run drills with professional Legends Football League stars and then play a lively game. Former NFL star Keyshawn Johnson joins Chris Harrison for the play by play until a devastating tackle ends the fun and games. The injured suitor will need to make a decision that will impact not only Becca but the rest of the house, on “The Bachelorette,” MONDAY, JUNE 11 (8:00–10:01 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.
Editors’ note: If the NBA Finals go to Game Five, “The Bachelorette,” “Episode 1403,” will air Tuesday, June 12 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EDT).
Becca has a surprise for six men as she takes them to a spa where they will need to pamper Tia, Seinne, Bekah M., Caroline and Kendall from the last season of “The Bachelor.” One dashing man has the jitters: He had a relationship with one of these women who is close to Becca. Will it put an end to his chances with the Bachelorette? Two bachelors have a face-off at the after-party, arguing about one man’s questionable dating history. One lucky bachelor overcomes his dating past to capture the group date rose.
Lucky Chris gets the only one-on-one date of the week. He and Becca meet GRAMMY winner Richard Marx, who serenades the pair with his smash ‘80s hit “Right Here Waiting.” But when he asks them to write their own sincere lyrics, Chris gets writer’s block. With Becca’s help, Chris becomes inspired and Marx creates a song with both of their lyrics. But will the emotional night end with a rose?
One bachelor suffers a serious injury in a fluke accident overnight, leaving the rest of the men shaken. However, 10 men must motivate themselves to confront each other on the football field. Legends Football League superstars Malissa Miles and Dina Karwoski run the guys through drills until Becca reveals that they will play a football game rooted on by raucous fans. Popular former NFL star Keyshawn Johnson and Chris Harrison follow the action as the winner of the fierce contest will walk away with the MVP (Most Valuable Partner) Award. One man’s desire to excel turns into a stunning injury as Becca looks on in disbelief. Later, a few of the guys make great strides in deepening their connections with the Bachelorette, but a surprise return by one of the bachelors throws cold water on the men’s confidence.
One of the injured men faces a serious medical diagnosis and he must make a life-changing decision. Will he stay and fight for Becca’s heart or leave her in tears?
