Bachelor Ben Higgins travels to the Bahamas next week and fans are already wondering which girls will be sent home on Week 6 (February 8) and who will move on to the following week in Ben’s hometown of Warsaw, Indiana.
Just nine girls remain after two contestants were eliminated in Mexico City (Jubilee and Jen) on Week 5. Next week, Ben will eliminate three more girls and one of them will end up having a meltdown in the Bahamas and another girl will leave on her own.
Six girls will go on a group date, one lucky lady will get a one-on-one with Ben, and two girls will go on the always dreaded two-on-one date. Here’s what fans can expect on Week 6, including some Olivia drama that will have everyone talking.

Group Date: Spoilers indicate that Ben and six girls (Lauren B., Lauren H., Leah, JoJo, Becca, Amanda) go on a group date at the Exuma Grand Isle Resort Spa where they swim with pigs. Yes, swimming with those cute pigs is a thing at this spa!) Amanda scores the group date rose.
One-on-One Date: Caila Quinn gets her second one-on-one date of the season. The date is rumored to involve deep sea fishing. No word on if they caught a fish or not, but Caila does get a rose.
Two-on-One Date: This is always the worst date every season and it never ends well. Ben will have his hands full as he tries to enjoy a date on a private island with Olivia Caridi and Emily Ferguson.
Previews show Olivia crying uncontrollably, so it looks like she didn’t take rejection well. Emily gets the rose and Olivia has to leave the Bahamas as Olivia Caridi, not Olivia Higgins.
There won’t be a cocktail party on Week 6, with Reality Steve‘s spoilers stating that Ben will cancel it after Leah Block tells him she’s leaving the show because she still hasn’t been on a one-on-one date. Apparently Ben doesn’t feel the need to shmooze with the ladies and heads right to the rose ceremony where he eliminates remaining twin, Emily Ferguson.
It’s unclear why Ben didn’t eliminate Emily along with Olivia on the two-on-one date, but it sounds like producers knew that focusing in on her breakdown would get fans talking.
Next up, the remaining six girls head to Ben’s hometown of Warsaw, Indiana (February 15) and then it’s on the hometown dates (February 22).
