The group journeyed to Marseilles, France. Turtlenecks seemed to be making a come back this episode.
Who got kicked off: The ones in red X’s were sent home this week. Bro #1 (Andrew) and Bro #2 (Patrick) were sent home, officially breaking up the bromance. Always fashionably dressed and bringing in the humor, Marquel the Cookie Monster (as he is lovingly referred to on the show) was sent a’packing. I’m gonna miss that one.
Talks with Chris: At a quaint cafe in France, Andi admitted to Chris Harrison that she was falling for more than one guy.
One-on-one: Josh got the first one-on-one. They went on a boat ride. As much as Josh tried to address her concerns, Andi is still hesitant that Josh is very similar to her previous relationships that left her burned. The date ended with a concert by Ben Fields.
Group Date: I take back what I said before. This could be the worst date on the history of The Bachelorette. Andi took the boys to learn how to mime. Then they performed in the streets of France, where they terrified small children and adults alike.
Most Awkward Quote of the Night:
“I got my mime on my money and my money on my mime.” – Cody
What does that even mean? Cody, work with me here.
Nick did not look happy. At the after party, Nick told Andi, “I had a lot of fun today.” No you didn’t, Nick. Don’t lie. Is that any way to start a relationship? Built on lies? I mean I don’t blame you. It was miming. But suck it up.
JJ got the rose on the group date. He stole Andi away for a little one-on-one time on a ferris wheel. JJ got the rose on the date. Nick was not pleased.
Andrew vs Everyone: I think the guys were a little grouchy from their travels or just all syncing up because they got in several spats this episode. Andrew had made a racist and offensive comment night one of the season. JJ brought this to Marquel’s attention, who subsequently brought it to Andrew’s attention. Andrew was not happy. At one point during the night, Andrew told Andi he wasn’t there “for this bullshit.” Eh (buzzer sound)! You’re here for Andi. I think that’s what you meant to say, right Andrew?
Nick vs Everyone: They got in a bit of a tiff on the group date. Both Cody and Chris (the nice guys as Andi has deemed them) expressed concern over Nick’s arrogance, which raised concerns with Andi.
One-on-One: Brian got the second one-on-one date. They went to a movie (a little promo for The Hundred-Foot Journey). After that they went to some random French apartment and attempted to recreate part of the movie by cooking their own meal. Brian just got caught under fire. He got a little frazzled in the kitchen and seemed to forget Andi was there with him. Brian, you’re a basketball coach. You should know how to make the moves. Stop missing plays. After they disastrously ruined the meal they were making, the pair decided to just get pizza. Great idea. Brian seemed to ease back into his charming self. And as Chris pointed out on his blog on Entertainment Weekly, they actually showed the couple eating! This is a rare occurrence on the show. Drinks a’plenty. Eating? Not so much.
The Cocktail Party that Wasn’t: Andi had made up her mind quite quickly. Despite the fact it was a big cut this night (3 were on the chopping block), Andi decided to forego the cocktail party and get straight down to it with the rose ceremony.

Next week the remaining 8 men travel to Venice, Italy to continue their search for love.
