As a person who roots for all things D.C., I am more than pleased to announce that The Bachelor’s Sean Lowe has given Lesley Murphy (the political consultant from D.C.) a rose, officially making her one of the final six contestants in the show.



This week’s date involved the great outdoors, but of the chillier variety: Canada’s Banff National Park. Sean took seven of the remaining ladies out for some R&R in the great outdoors, and it was a pretty eventful series of outings. Catherine (the graphic designer from Seattle) was able to score a one-on-one date with Sean where she was able to wow him with her ability to take the (what I can only imagine to be) bitter cold of the Canadian outdoors and her impressive snow-angel-making skills. At the end of it all, she was able to successfully pick up a rose from Sean, so you know the date was a success.

On the group date, Tierra, Sarah, AshLee, Lindsay, Selma, Lesley, and Daniella go out with Sean on Lake Louise for some canoeing. Lesley (the lady we’re all rooting for) crunched her own “love numbers” with the following statement:

So, seven girls, three canoes. If you do the math, one canoe gets three girls, one canoe gets another three girls, and obviously there’s one girl who’s going to get to go with Sean

Some hard hitting math there.

Afterwards, the real action started when Sean decided to take the girls for a dip in the ice (crazy if you ask me) but all the girls are more than willing and get down to their bare skivvies (bikinis) and jump in the lake. Of course, like all things reality television, one of the girls (Tierra) gets out with self-diagnosed hypothermia as the EMTs on standby cart her away. Interestingly enough, even though she was the one that was ‘hurt’ during the whole process, Lesley still walked away with a rose. Suck it Tierra.

Overall, the rest of the episode went well, Lesley moves onto the next round, and Danielle got sent home back to California.
