In episode 5 of the 2016 season of The Bachelor, the group headed out to Mexico City, Mexico, where two more were sent home. On February 8, Ben Higgins and the remaining women fly over to the Bahamas for episode 6, and it’s time to learn who will be sent home and what kind of drama is going to head their way with the “villain” still around.
Please let it be known that there are possible spoilers ahead for the new season of The Bachelor starring Ben Higgins. If you don’t want to know them, stop reading now.
When filming took place for this season of The Bachelor, it was back in October, and a number of fans happened to see the group heading out.

Reality Steve reports that everyone is in the Bahamas, and the first one-on-one date goes to Caila Quinn. Ben Higgins takes Caila on a deep sea fishing excursion and things seem to go rather well which ends with Caila getting a rose.
For the group date, six girls head out with Ben Higgins to go swimming with the pigs. Yes, you read that right as it is something that can be done at the Exuma Grand Isle Resort & Spa, and it’s apparently something that is rather popular.
Amanda ends up being safe for this week as she gets the group date rose.
After that, Emily Ferguson and Olivia Caridi go on a two-on-one date with Ben, and they all head out to a private island. At different times, both ladies got to have some private time alone with Ben, and it led to Emily getting a rose.
This, in turn, is when Olivia (the villain) is sent home and eliminated from this season of The Bachelor. It may be needless to say, but the other women were probably thrilled at learning this little bit of information.
Upon returning from his two-on-one date with Olivia and Emily, Ben ends up getting confronted by Leah, who pulls him to the side.
Leah made it known that she wasn’t overly thrilled having been the only woman remaining who had not yet had a one-on-one date with Ben. Cailia has even had two of them, and she brought that to Ben’s attention in case he didn’t know.
This little confrontation ended with Ben sending Leah home and then deciding to cancel the cocktail party that evening. It appears as if Ben was not too keen on being questioned.
Even though two ladies will already have been eliminated earlier in the episode, the rose ceremony does still take place. Only one woman won’t end up with a rose and will be sent home by Ben Higgins at the ceremony, and that will end up being Lauren Himle.
There is a lot of talk going around as to who will actually win this season and the Day Herald even states that Lauren Bushnell may already be engaged to Ben Higgins. A picture has started making the rounds that shows Lauren B. with a ring on her left ring finger, but there’s much more to it than what it appears to be.
After episode 5 of the 2016 season of The Bachelor, there will be just nine women remaining. Episode 6 airs on Feb. 8, and that episode in the Bahamas will see Ben Higgins take the number of remaining women down from nine to six, and it will see the elimination of the “villain” — Olivia Caridi.
