Watch The Bachelor Season 28: Synopsis

Almost two months since Mr Graziadei met 32 women at the Bachelor Mansion, and the Fantasy Suites episode saw how the romantic bonds had really deepened with the final three. They had a wonderful few days in Tulum, Mexico, sharing stunning vistas, a bed, and their hopes and dreams. But Joey’s worst fears were ignited when he received a note declaring, “We need to talk.” Read on below for our guide, which explains how to watch The Bachelor Season 28 online from anywhere now.

All of the girls received support and some sage advice from former Golden Bachelor contestants. Rachel met Susan Noles, and confided she was worried she’d left it too late to truly open up to Joey. She had not doubt, though, that she loved him. Their daredevil date to some stunning underwater caves began auspiciously enough. But things went south when Rachel hit the water, the impact causing terrible pain in her jaw. The fact that much of their date was frittered away in A&E only added to her fears that she might not have made a strong enough connection. Later, however, Joey and Rachel shared a heart-to-heart and the two lovebirds awoke together in the morning. “Last night was perfect,” a more self-assured Rachel told the cameras.

Things got very real on Joey and Daisy’s date. First, they had a wild time riding quad bikes over the Tulum landscape before they cleaned up, enjoying a passionate rendezvous in the shower. Then in the evening they traded intimacies and insecurities over dinner. Daisy was moved when Joey shared his fear of someone falling for “Joey as The Bachelor instead of Joey the person.” Addressing the cameras, she declared that, “I’ve never been so sure of someone in my life. […] I am in love with him.”

Joey and Southern belle Kelsey had a dreamy day, too, locking lips and discussing their possible future together. But some potentially ill-judged advice from former Golden Bachelor contestant Leslie, who cautioned Kelsey against putting all her eggs in one basket – because, well, there’s a chance Joey might not pick her – might have given Kelsey cold feet. 

Despite waking up after getting a Fantasy Suites card saying she was “on top of the world,” Kelsey left a note for Joey with the dreaded words, “We need to talk.” Like Maria, who went home last week, Kelsey wanted to avoid the distinct possibility of getting her heart broken. But the note sent Joey into emotional freefall.

Who made it into Joey's top two? All will be revealed in the penultimate “Women Tell All” episode in which former contestants return to spill the “behind the scenes” drama. Follow our guide below and watch The Bachelor Season 28 online and stream every episode from anywhere.
