JoJo Fletcher selected Chase McNary, a 27-year-old medical sales representative from Highlands Ranch, CO for her one-on-one date in the Bachelorette 2016, Week 3. The episode aired at 8 p.m. on June 6, 2016 on ABC. JoJo was embarrassed by the yoga. She had the right to be.
They were instructed to actually have a tantrum on the floor as part of their yoga routine. There was an intimate moment when JoJo sat in Chase’s lap in a straddling position. “Straddling Chase, looking into his eyes, sweating all over each other, I feel safe in his arms, and I’ve only known him for a week, but I’m feeling like I’m connected with him. I’m feeling like I’ve known him a lot longer than I have,” JoJo said. Chase also felt the connection.
Later that night, at the Triunfo Creek Vineyard, in Agoura Hills, California, JoJo talked about how uncomfortable she was during the beginning of the yoga session and how she felt connected with him, safe, and protected as the yoga session progressed. Chase also shared how important it was to him that he finds the right woman, because he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. Needless to say, JoJo gave Chase a rose. There was a special romantic ending to the date. They had a special performance from country singer, Charles Kelly and they danced together outside under the stars. “This is the start of something really amazing,” JoJo said. “I can feel it.”
Jordan, Grant, Wells, James F.,Christian, Daniel, Denny, Nick, Evan, Alex, and Chad were on a group date. The message said, “Love has no secrets.” Chad said that he didn’t want to go on a group date with 12 guys. The guys told him to be more thankful that had the opportunity to go on a group date.
James F. urged the guys to try to work together as a team on the group date. Whatever team’s Chad’s on, let’s hope it’s a bench press competition, not a spelling contest,” Jordan said.
Chad was offended and called Jordan a failed football player and that all Jordan ever did in his life was throw a piece of leather.
Jordan laughed it off, but Alex called him out and wouldn’t back down. He let it be known that he was not the least little bit intimidated by Chad. The next day, the guys and JoJo went to the Atwater Village Theatre for their date. They had to tell their most embarrassing sex stories on stage to a room full of strangers. Chad said that he didn’t have a story, and he didn’t want to share it. He actually sad that it wasn’t her business.
Evan, a 33-year-old Erectile Dysfunction Specialist from Nashville, admitted that he wanted to mess with Chad and that his man claws were going to come out. Now, Evan has a far smaller build than Chad, a muscular guy who loves to work out every chance he gets.
“They are way kinkier than I ever imagined,” JoJo said. There were stories about getting caught having sex, stories about bodily sounds when having sex, Evan talked about the dangers of using steroids, and Chad was pissed.
“When Evan gets knocked out by Chad, no one’s going to be surprised,” said Grant, a 28-year-old firefighter from San Francisco.
After his performance, Evan tried to sit down in his seat, and Chad grabbed him. JoJo saw what she called a weird altercation between them. Chad brought JoJo on stage when it was his turn to tell his story. He said that “They know nothing about what’s going on between me and you. so I don’t think the day’s about the past. I think it’s about the future, and with that being said…”
He tried to have a passionate kiss with JoJo on stage, but she turned her head away and he ended up kissing her on the cheek.And she shook her head “no”. He didn’t tell a story, and Chad was rejected on stage.
Chad was so angry that he hit a wall and his knuckles were bloody.
Evan told Chad that he owes him an apology, and Chad advised him to leave him alone. All of the guys left from the group date at that point.
By now, Evan’s misgivings about Chad had raised a few more levels. He told JoJo that he would not be staying in the house if Chad stayed. This put JoJo in a bad spot, because she wasn’t privy to all of the information that the guys had about Chad. JoJo still felt that Chad had some good qualities. She also felt that Evan had some good qualities, so she didn’t want to let either of them go just yet. When it was tim.e to give away the rose for the group date, she pulled Evan aside to talk with him. It seemed as though he would be going home, since he was the only one to give JoJo an ultimatum like that.
JoJo, however surprised him and offered Evan the rose. She did admit that she still wasn’t sure if she was going to send Chad home or not. So, she didn’t make any promises. Evan accepted the rose, anyway.
Then, when JoJo announced to the rest of group that she had given the rose the Evan, Chad couldn’t believe and it mouthed off. JoJo said that she didn’t like that. She was highly annoyed. The bachelors were so unedge about Chad snapping that a security guard was assigned to him.
James Taylor, 29, a singer and songwriter from Katy, Texas was chosen for the second one-on-one date. They did some swing dancing. JoJo admitted that she wanted to move into having a romantic date with him. So, they had a romantic evening in a beautiful park overlooking the city. James admitted that he was made fun of when he was younger, and JoJo told him not to worry. He was the whole package. He earned a rose. And then, James serenaded her with a song that he wrote.
That night, James and JoJo moved out of the friend zone.
Back at the house, Evan spoke with Chris about Chad’s threats and Chris promised to step in. When he spoke with Chad, he told him to settle everything, with an approach that would be well-received. The conversation only made Chad angrier, and he muttered something about throwing bodies in the pool. The episode was “to be continued”.
