The Bachelor Chris Soules is showing the world what good old America has to offer. In Episode 5, the Bachelor group visited Santa Fe , New Mexico where they stayed at the Hilton Santa Fe. Chris had a date in Santa Fe with Carly Waddell, a cruise ship singer from Texas. He wanted to see if the two had any chemistry with each other.

They had a meeting with a sex therapist who tried to help them get in touch with their sensual sides. The date was too much, too soon. The two felt extremely uncomfortable, especially when they were asked to remove their clothes.

Nine of the ladies went on a river rafting trip on the Rio Grande during the group trip in the episode. The ride was wild and exciting, but one of the ladies fell into the cold water.

Chris surprised Britt Nilsson the next morning. He took her on a balloon ride as the sun was rising in Santa Fe. He woke her up in morning, and whisked her away in this highly romantic journey.

They looked so happy together. Is this the beginning of the happily ever after between Chris and Britt?
