The Bachelorette Season 18 Episode 4 Recap
‘The Bachelorette’ season 18 episode 4 found a new villain in Chris Sutton, who had ruined his rapport with frontrunner Nayte Olukoya in the previous installment. Apart from that, Michelle started off the day with a one-on-one date with Martin Gelbspan, who claimed to be Jamie’s friend, so Michelle was worried about placing her trust in him. 12 men were called on a group date the next day, and Rick Leach’s name was excluded with the hope that he was a viable candidate for a one-on-one date.
Michelle hosted a “sleepover” themed date where they played games and got comfortable with each other. She was annoyed at everyone’s general ignorance towards her, which was duly conveyed to the winners of the “Teddy Bear Showdown.” Out of them, Olu Inajide’s apology melted her heart, and he was awarded the group date rose. Rick’s special moment arrived the next day during his one-on-one date with Michelle, where he talked about his father’s death and their strained relationship that still troubles him.
At the weekly cocktail party, Chris S. blamed the men for not caring much about Michelle besides tagging them as “cocky.” When Michelle confronted him, he accused Nayte of being a horrible person. However, the next shot featured Nayte motivating the men on being positive, so it was clear that Chris Sutton’s claims were born out of a sly attempt at winning Michelle’s heart. Sure enough, he received the last rose of the evening while Romeo Alexander, Will Urena, and Chris Gallant were eliminated.
