Tensions Rise Between Maria & Sydney in Week 3
During the third week of 2024's The Bachelor, Madina will express self-consciousness about her age, being one of the older contestants.
Tensions will arise when Maria comments on Madina's age, leading to a conflict between Maria and Sydney.
In response to heightened drama, Joey will cancel the cocktail party and host a pool party on the day of the rose ceremony, with the event revolving around the ongoing dispute between Maria and Sydney.
Eventually, Chrissa Perez, Evalin Clark, and Starr Skyler will not receive a rose, and their Bachelor journeys end.
Lexi Young Chooses To Eliminate Herself in Week 7
Lexi Young will leave The Bachelor on her behalf. Reportedly, the decision is influenced by a misalignment in their respective timelines regarding marriage and children, although the specific details of each timeline remain unclear.
Also, during Week 7, eight women will participate in a group date in Old Montreal involving a scavenger hunt and hockey.
During the night portion, Joey will eliminate Jessica Edwards. Following this, Maria Georgas has a 1-on-1 date featuring a shopping spree around town, and simultaneously, Kelsey Toussant has a separate (unknown) 1-on-1 date.
The rose ceremony will conclude with the eliminations of Katelyn DeBacker and Lea Cayanan, with Jessica Edwards and Lexi having been eliminated earlier in the episode.
Joey Visits These Womens' Hometowns in Week 8
Everyone loves to watch Hometowns Week, where every relationship suddenly becomes real and even more personal.
This season, Joey will visit the hometowns of four women: Daisy Kent, Kelsey Anderson, Maria Georgas, and Rachel Nance.
However, Maria will be eliminated this week, followed by Rachel in Week 9. This leads to the final two choices and "an ending that no one is going to expect," as Joey told Extra.
Joey's Final Choice in The Bachelor Season 28 Revealed
In the highly anticipated final rose ceremony, Joey will choose between his final two lucky ladies: Kelsey and Daisy.
The details surrounding why he narrows his decision in the finale down to these two women are unclear, but the greater question remains: does Joey get engaged?
Yes, Joey ultimately will propose to Daisy Kent, marking the end of the season with an engagement in Tulum, Mexico.
As an early fan favorite, many viewers will rejoice at Daisy getting the final rose. It's unclear if Joey and Daisy are still together, and it probably won't be fully revealed until after the season airs the finale in March.
