The women will fail to find their groove while the men will try to make up for their lack of grace with sheer attitude. On a 3-on-1 date, a fan favorite will find unexpected sparks at a rock concert with a beautiful housemate. The other 3-on-1 date features a race for a woman's heart - in a soapbox derby! Back at the mansion, the pressure mounts on all the contestants, leading to a shocking pre-dawn decision.
The third challenge of the season will plunge the contestants up to their heads in "Hot Sludge Funday," an ice-cream themed obstacle course. Awaiting the winners are 3-on-1 dates to relive high school memories and to get shined up at Madame Tussaud's famous Hollywood wax museum. Back at the house, contestants will start coupling up romantically, including one fan who, after being spurned by the cast member of her dreams, will have better luck on the rebound.
This week offers two challenges - the first is a sudden death dangling competition in which competitors depend on their partners' knowledge of "Bachelor Pad" trivia to keep them from plummeting down into the pool. The second is a karaoke competition, played out in front of a crowd of 500 at a legendary Hollywood concert venue - with a very special surprise guest. The couple with the roses at the end get to decide whom to take with them to the finals, but their trust vanishes when they can't agree on whether to go with loyalty or strategy.
