Recap: “The Bachelor” Episode 6 Big Moments

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Ohio U chapter.

*Contains Spoilers*

The episode began with everyone in Santiago, Chile with the girls having a sincere conversation about the conflicts that occurred the night before. 

The first date of the episode was with Hannah Ann, where they explored the culture of the city. Their age difference was an issue brought up on this date, as Hannah Ann has never been in love before, so Peter expressed his concern as to whether or not she was ready for love. Peter drilled her with questions regarding the topic, clearly worried as to whether they have a future together. She broke down, and begrudgingly admitted she was falling in love with him, which to viewers appeared very forced. However, Peter took it as a sign of authenticity and gave her the rose. 

Meanwhile, two date cards arrived to the other girls–one card revealed a group date, and the other was a one-on-one date for Victoria F., who already had a one-on-one last week–upsetting many of the girls, mainly Mykenna. 

The group date consisted of the girls and Peter acting in their own telenovela. After this awkward and incredibly cringy date, Mykenna felt she was finally seen by Peter. 

Big moment #1: The send-off

Victoria P. and Peter endured a difficult discussion during the group date, where Peter conveyed his belief that she is more secure in their relationship than he is. He went as far as to say he could not see her as a wife, a statement that blindsided her, as the entire interaction appeared very random. Ultimately, he broke up with Victoria P. and she was sent home.

Tammy yet again put her nose in someone else’s business, confronting Mykenna about her being immature. A fight broke out between the two, and Mykenna told Peter about the entire situation. Peter was confused about Tammy’s confrontation but expressed that he did not see those characteristics in Mykenna.

Peter gave Madison (aka the unproblematic queen) the group date rose. 

Big moment #2: Date insecurity

Peter and Victoria F. ‘s date involved riding horses and exploring the countryside. She talked with him about her insecurities regarding his relationships with other women, which brought down his positivity surrounding their relationship and catching him off guard. At dinner, he accused her of sabotaging their progress and after a confusing exchange, he made her uncomfortable when asking about her lack of security. Victoria explained her frustration to the cameras, trying to describe her uncertainty about whether she is ready for marriage with him. After this unnecessarily dramatic encounter, Peter still offered her the rose, to which she accepted.

Big moment #3: the third date card

To everyone’s surprise, Peter organized a two-on-one date (the most awkward date structure) between Mykenna and Tammy before the cocktail party, in an attempt to flesh out their drama. He pulled each girl aside separately during the date to hear their sides of the conflict. The girls’ interactions with each other were incredibly toxic and petty, but they each attempted to defend themselves to Peter. Ultimately, Peter decided to send Tammy home for her insistence on creating drama rather than focusing on their relationship, and choosing to instead believe Mykenna.

Big moment #4: The rose ceremony

At the rose ceremony, Peter gave a rose to everyone except Sydney and Mykenna–the latter being incredibly shocked especially since he did not send her home on the two-on-one. 

Next episode, Peter and the six remaining women will be heading to Lima, Peru.
