'The Bachelor' Week 2 Preview

Published  10:42 AM HST Jan 11, 2013

The competition officially starts Monday night!

Sean will go on two very different one-on-one dates and he will also have his first group date of the season (I LOVE group dates -- we get to see these women’s true colors. Yes, things are about to get UGLY).

How will the remaining 19 girls handle the pressure? And how far will some go for the rose?

Sean will have his first one-on-one date with Sarah.  It’s your typical bachelor date-helicopter ride and romantic picnic (please note my bitter tone, I’m not jealous or anything -- wink, wink).\

And Sarah is also in for a BIG surprise.  Sarah and Sean will be free falling from 300 feet!  Will Sarah’s handicap play a role in their date?  Will Sean develop feelings for her?

On the group date, 13 lucky women will compete in a photo shoot to appear on three Harlequin romance novels covers.  One bachelorette sneaks a kiss with Sean -- who is the lucky gal?   I’ll give you one hint: she’s currently living in Washington, D.C.

Also, jealousy and tension rise as one model uses her good looks to lure Sean and one yoga instructor questions what she is doing there. And, of course, one of my favorite contestants of all time, Kacie B., tries to spend some quality time with Sean to kindle some sparks.

Desiree gets the second one-on-one date this week.   We all know Sean has a goofy side to him.  Remember when he pranked Emily?  Well, it looks like Sean is at it again this season!

He has a trick up his sleeve for Desiree (SPOILER: it has to do with a million dollar piece of art work)!  How will she handle Sean's sense of humor?  Could this date turn out to be a disaster?

It looks like this is going to be one intense cocktail party as all of the bachelorettes try to spend as much time with Sean as possible before the infamous rose ceremony. Nineteen girls and one guy -- that's a pretty scary combination.

Sean narrows his 19 women to just 16.  Who will these lucky ladies be and who is still in the running to becoming Sean's fiance?

Make sure to tune in this Monday night at 7 p.m. on KITV to find out!  Also, send your tweets to @laurenjwang and hashtag it with #bachelorhi!
