Last night's episode of "The Bachelorette" brought Ali and the five remaining guys to Lisbon, Portugal. There would be four dates this week, with no roses on the line in any of them.
The first solo date went to Roberto, who's asked by Ali to be the "king of her castle". Are they heading to Medieval Times for dinner and a tournament?
Nope. Instead, the two start posing for wacky photos, with Ali trying to impersonate every Toyota commercial from 1984. Ali and Roberto then dance in the street to music added in post-production. Mick Jagger and David Bowie they're not.
The two then go to the top of a castle, where Ali says there's "no doubt" that she can fall in love with Roberto.
Frank and Ty are next up for the two-on-one date, and they board a helicopter with Ali, who was afraid of flying when the show started. The three head to another castle, where they watch the deer but no antelope play. Inside, Ali requests that the booze start flowing immediately, if not sooner.
Ali then spends time alone with the two suitors. Ty says he finds it appealing that Ali has a plan, while Frank demands that Ali comes to his house, which technically is his parents' home. Ali doesn't seem to mind that Frank has to share a bathroom with his father, and the two hug.
Kirk, who is "ecstatic" about being on a date with Ali because he likes her, heads with our heroine to, you guessed it, a castle. Kirk talks about not bringing a girl home to see his parents in three years, while Ali apologizes for a being a bit of a burden during the day. In the end, Ali says the "emotional connection" she has with Kirk is special to her, while Kirk says the two of them have grown closer.
Chris the landscaper gets the final date of the show, and he and Ali go to a winery that resembles a castle. Chris, whose dad likes red wine, says he likes how his relationship with Ali is progressing, and presents Ali with a bracelet, which thankfully fits her wrist. Ali expresses joy that Chris waited until he was comfortable with her to present her with the gift.
At the rose ceremony, which looked to be held in a castle, Ali gave the boot to Ty, saying she just didn't see a relationship with him working in the long run.
Next week, it's the hometown dates.
