The final three men go to the romantic paradise of Maui, Hawaii for steamy fantasy overnight dates with Jillian Harris on The Bachelorette, tonight at 8pm on ABC. Unfortunately, one of the dates does not go according to plan, leaving Jillian wondering if this relationship will ever work out or not.

When we last saw The Bachelorette, Ed, Kiptyn, Reid and Wes traveled to Spain where Jillian got to know them a little bit better. Questions were finally answered as Jillian tearfully confronted her worse fears and sent Wes home. You can read a full recap in this article.

Tonight, the romantic adventure continues as Jillian explores what her future would be like with each of these potential mates. The night begins with Kiptyn, whom she challenges with a beachside rope course designed to build trust and teamwork. She obviously has strong feelings for him but is he ready to settle down? During a romantic evening alone, Jillian finally confronts him.

Then Jillian surprises Reid with a spectacular panoramic helicopter tour of Maui, landing at a secluded beach where a romantic picnic awaits them. Later however, the fun stops as he makes a confession to Jillian that rattles her.

Last but not the least, Jillian takes Ed on a boat ride to a remote cove where the couple plays in the pristine water. She has her doubts about Ed but his surprising gesture at the end of the date proves just how serious he is about her.

Unfortunately, Jillian must send one man home at the end of the episode. Then, realizing she is close to finding her fairytale ending, Jillian and two remaining bachelors toast their final adventure.

The three remaining men are:

Ed, 29, technology consultant from Chicago, IL.

Kiptyn, 31, business developer from Encinitas, CA.

Reid, 30, realtor from Philadelphia, PA.
