The Bachelor Chris Soules heads to Deadwood, South Dakota, with nine girls on February 9, but only six will remain at the end of Episode 6. Reality Steve‘s spoilers indicate that there won’t be a rose ceremony next week, with one girl leaving on her own after the group date and two more eliminated after an awkward two-on-one date.
Most of the girls hope to get one of the coveted roses during their Week 6 dates, keeping them safe from elimination at the rose ceremony. However, Chris will not be handing out roses at the end of the show next week, making this the first time in Bachelor history that a rose ceremony is cancelled.
According to a previous report from the Inquisitr, there will be no need for the girls to line up to either accept a rose, or get sent home next week. Ashley I. and Kelsey will both be eliminated after their 2-on-1 date, and Megan will leave on her own after the group date.
Why Megan leaves Chris won’t be known until the episode airs on February 9, but perhaps she was still embarrassed from her confusion during Episode 5 when she thought New Mexico was a foreign country.

It’s likely that fans expected Ashley I. to be eliminated sooner-than-later — there probably aren’t any eyelash extension salons in Arlington, Iowa, anyway. Kelsey’s dramatic panic attack may have had something to do with Chris sending her home, or perhaps he finally caught on that she is a bit of a phony. On his most recent Bachelor blog, Chris Harrison promises that when Episode 6 begins, fans will get to see if her panic attack was legitimate.
“Next Monday night we begin right back where we left off, on the floor outside the bathroom. You will see the rest of Kelsey’s panic attack and you can decide if you think it was legit or all an act. The other ladies are starting to really question Kelsey, and this ‘incident’ didn’t help any.”
It’s likely Carly, Kaitlyn, Whitney and Jade will all breathe a sigh of relief when they find out there won’t be a rose ceremony on Week 6. Becca and Britt both had roses from their dates, so one of the other four girls were up for possible elimination if Megan didn’t leave on her own.
All six girls end up safe for yet another week and will continue on to a very important week in Des Moines, Iowa, on Episode 7 (February 16). Reality Steve states that there will be three one-one-one dates and one group date and yes, there will be a rose ceremony. However, Chris will only have to send one girl home because Britt decides to leave on her own — a sign that she will become the next Bachelorette? Could be.
Carly Waddell and her famous arched eyebrows will be sent packing after the Week 7 rose ceremony, leaving four lucky ladies — Becca, Whitney, Jade and Kaitlyn — an opportunity to show Chris their hometowns before he chooses who goes on the overnight dates with him in Bali.
Tune in to watch the Bachelor Episode 6 on Monday, February 9 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
