'The Bachelor' Episode 9 Recap: The Desperate Ex-Boyfriend

Caroline from'The Bachelor

The former professional racecar driver has narrowed his marrying prospects down from 29 women to just three, and now in Week 9 he'll select his final two.

Becca's ex, Ross, hopped a flight to Peru, drove five hours to the resort where Becca was shacking up with Arie Luyendyk Jr. and then proceeded to tell both Becca and Arie that he still has feelings of her and can't stop thinking about her after they broke up previous year. He for one thinks it the flawless place to fall in love in.

After their night in the fantasy suite - all of which he said they spent talking - Kendall claimed she was ready to commit.

Becca is thrilled to see Arie, showing more emotion before he even arrives than Lauren did on her entire overly affirming date, and she's hoping this is the day she gets to profess her feelings. Know what else has ups-and-downs? Marikh said Chelsea glam-shamed her for brushing her hair and Chelsea said she wasn't, and didn't. From an exhilarating buggy ride zigzagging up and down the sand dunes of coastal Peru to a thrilling plane tour of the country's famous Nazca Lines to a catamaran excursion around the breathtaking Ballestas Islands, the dates are filled with passion and excitement as Arie continues to explore what his future might be like with each of these potential mates. I think she is someone who is so interesting. Has anyone told her she doesn't have to marry Arie?

Krystal shed a few tears, talked about her homeless brother and ultimately decided she wish she made a few friends. A unusual cover of "How Do I Live Without You" plays, I guess to signal that this is some big love story.

But Arie, who confessed privately to being frustrated that he had to spend more time reassuring Lauren than enjoying their dates, went on reassuring her at dinner: "I want to let you know I do feel confident in all this because I love you and I would hate to lose you". He's noticeably less enthusiastic than with Lauren as they cuddle and discuss future plans, and he seems nearly annoyed that he can't pinpoint a looming red flag. As Arie oohs and ahhs over them, she just smiles and nods like a distracted soccer mom thinking about when she can trade juice boxes for mommy juice. Chris had Bekah call her mother from the show, and then he announced that for two weeks this summer Bekah will be on Bachelor in Paradise.

If we can continue to play like this, we can win games and it means that Slimani can give us something more at the end of the season.

So, that evening, Arie straight-out tells Lauren he loves her. In a preview of the episode, Jirgl is heard saying that he doesn't want to be on camera and that he was there to see Kufrin.

Kendall's worries only intensify as the Fantasy Suite approaches.

"I'm just a goofy dude, you know?" Then, instead of going on the attack, she killed Krystal with kindness, simply wondering why someone would act that way. The only thing missing is a stake. "I know the show ends in a proposal, and for as long as I've thought about her, that's my proposal to give her", he told Arie. They talk about love and feelings and expectations.

Because we've got another half-hour of time to kill and a severe lack of drama, Arie opens his door to find Ross, aka Becca's ex, who wants his soulmate back. Her ultimate passion has always been to work in the media industry, and while at Academy of Art University, she was able to pick up plenty of real world experience in that field.

On Monday night's penultimate episode - from a viewer's perspective - neither Becca, 27, nor Lauren, 25, could possibly have any idea that they weren't Arie's top choice. Um, didn't he say the same thing to Lauren? Now Arie, 36, is back and ready to race into America's heart yet again when he returns for a second shot at love, starring in the 22nd season of ABC's hit romance reality series "The Bachelor", premiering MONDAY, JANUARY 1 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network. "Why is hotel management here?" he says, delivering the subtlest shade.
