Bachelorette Recap: Amy Schumer Rescues a Group Date, Britt and Brady Reunite.

With that pesky business of which woman would be out of the way, wanted to do nothing more than get to know her remaining suitors better during the second week of the show. ’s journey on “The Bachelorette” truly began on Monday’s episode, though not without ousted would-be Bachelorette Britt Nilsson getting a surprise first.

Britt Nilsson may have been voted off “The Bachelorette” during the show’s first episode this year, but it appears that everything ended well for her as she is now reportedly dating former contestant Brady Troops. First, though, Chris Harrison checked in to make sure the season’s star was in the right headspace, since the week prior she had seemed rather shocked. “I am so happy the guys chose me!” Kaitlyn chirped. “I cannot wait to get started.” Meanwhile, a crushed Britt Nilsson called her mother to tell her she was already coming home. Also, judging everyone by their kissing ability! (Or is that just me?) We start with the classic Bachelorette “waking up” shot, in which Kaitlyn—and her new eyebrows—hops out of bed covered in makeup and looking hotter than ever.

Nilsson was shocked and devastated upon learning from host Chris Harrison that she won’t be season 11’s Bachelorette, but apparently, she’s not the only one who was saddened by the results. Making good on his promise to “find Britt” (which probably wasn’t all that hard considering she was still at the hotel), the musician showed up and pretty much swept her off her feet. “She’s the sweetest, most beautiful person I think I’ve ever met,” Brady gushed, while a brief update revealed that just one week later, Britt was calling him her “boyfriend.” Meanwhile, things didn’t go quite as smoothly for Kaitlyn. Ian joked about how he looked like the guy from the Old Spice commercials (he does), Chris the dentist unbuttoned his shirt, and Tony the “healer” totally bombed. As Gossip Cop reported, the season 11 men voted Bristowe to be the “Bachelorette” on part two of last week’s season premiere, leaving Nilsson shocked.

During the first rose ceremony, Troops, a singer-songwriter from Nashville, eliminated himself from the competition, telling Bristowe that he wanted to pursue Nilsson. Daniel, Justin, Jared, Corey, Tanner, Kupah, Ben H., and Ben Z. all headed out for the first group date of the season, which involved a boxing ring — because the best way to get know a potential mate is by watching him try to beat the living daylight out of another potential mate. Laila Ali was along to help coach and to wax poetic about how both boxing and love require “focus, discipline, and commitment” (just in case anyone was questioning this choice of activity for a date).

In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Nilsson admitted that she was disappointed that she wasn’t chosen as the new Bachelorette and was very surprised when Troops talked to her. “I guess Chris Harrison felt bad about letting me go, so, he gave Brady my [hotel room number],” she explained. “It is pretty smooth, it’s very gentlemanly, I thought it was sweet … He comes to my door and I was very surprised. It will be on the show next week.” Prior to the season premiere of “The Bachelorette” earlier this week, the show received backlash over ABC’s decision to have two ladies competing for the affections of 25 men.

First he (accidentally) sent Jared the hospital, then he told Kaitlyn about how his mother died when he was only 14, and then he got a rose, securing his place for the next week. Yes, he made out with Kaitlyn—though it’s probably worth noting that when Ben Z. returned from the hospital for a few minutes, he made out with Kaitlyn too. All the guys are “playing nice, ” until one bachelor refuses to play by the rules, on “The Bachelorette, ” MONDAY, MAY 25 (9:00-11:00 p.m.,), on WOTV4. “I don’t think that’s a crazy thing to sleep with somebody when you’re trying to be in a relationship with them, ” the starlet explained to the news site. After meeting at a boxing gym, the men found out they were getting training from none other than Laila Ali, who later revealed the guys would have to compete in one-on-one sudden death matches.

Kaitlyn kept claiming that this is a trend for engagement photos now, which we’re not sure is totally true, but the pair seemed to enjoy it regardless. All of Kupah’s practicing might pay off though, because Laila drops a group date bombshell on the guys … they’re going to fight each other in the ring!

I need to see you.” Waiting for her was Jared, who squeezed in a few moments (and a kiss) with Bristowe before he went to the show’s mansion to rest. The official synopsis of the episode reads: Boxer Laila Ali prepares the men to square off against one another; comic Amy Schumer instructs the bachelors on standup comedy; Clint gets the first one-on-one-date. The good news, though, was that Amy and Kaitlyn hit it off great and Trainwreck star confessed, “I want to spend the rest of my life with her.” Whether Amy will get her wish remains to be seen, however, because Kaitlyn seemed pretty into JJ (whom Amy described as a “turd”). As the guys enter the boxing gym, Kaitlyn explains that they are about to undergo a little bit of training—all the while someone who appears to be “A” stands ominously in the background. For the episode’s second group date, Bristowe met Chris, Ian, JJ, Joe, Jonathan, Joshua, and Tony at the Improv Comedy Club, where Amy Schumer dissed Soules, joked about wanting to hook up with the contestants, and schooled the guys on stand-up.

As the rose ceremony approached, the guys who hadn’t gotten a chance to spend much time with Kaitlyn worked their hardest to make an impression before it was too late. After their competitors took punches earlier, these guys were challenged to deliver their own punch lines, and make Bristowe and a live audience (which actually included Justin Long, see pic above) laugh. Tony continued to be awkwardly serious afterward during a chat with Bristowe, whereas JJ was serious in a touching way, talking about his 3-year-old daughter. He passive-aggressively accused her of keeping him around for dishonest reasons (though he didn’t specify what they were) and then told her, “I didn’t feel like there was a connection until right now.” Kaitlyn promptly responded, “To be honest, I actually felt a connection until now.” Oops. He then tried to recover by telling her how good-looking she was and that he really wanted to be there, but she was looking at him like she wanted to kill him.

At the pre-rose ceremony cocktail party, the contestants agreed that the three men who didn’t get to go on dates this week (Cory, Ryan B., and Shawn) should be the first to have alone time with Bristowe. Clint, the 27-year-old Chicago architectural engineer, was the lucky lad to land the first one-on-one date with Kaitlyn. “You take my breath away,” said the date note. She pulled him aside and told him, “I’m sorry; I have to let you go.” He tried not taking no for an answer, calling upon their mutual love of movie quotes as a reason to keep him around, but Kaitlyn remained unconvinced and sent him packing.

I feel like I can sum up most of these fights pretty quickly: Ben Z. and Jared—yes, Jared!—make their way through all of the other guys, with most every fight ending with someone throwing in the towel. (Apollo Creed would not approve.) Jared even takes out Kupah, until finally, the championship match is between sharp-cheeks Jared and huge-hunk-of-meat Ben Z. But before leaving the property, Kupah had to do an exit interview, during which he went off on the camera crew and the show’s “bullsh*t” process. And that’s when the episode announced, “To Be Continued.” During the episode, Bristowe tweeted, “I dare any woman or man, to not kiss the opposite sex when looking for a life partner. At the evening portion of the date, Ben Z.—who literally didn’t even win any extra alone time for beating up a million dudes—finally tells Kaitlyn about his mom’s death. Since Kaitlyn has a great sense of humor, she enlists the help of Amy and fellow comics Nikki Glaser, Rachel Feinstein and Bridget Everett to get the guys to do their own standup.

Making a stop on the way to the hotel, Jared—in a pink shirt, gold shorts, and Converse—is more confident than ever as he pulls Kaitlyn in for a kiss. Based on this connection, I’m betting this is the guy she sleeps with. (And can you blame her?) Okay, from one hunk of meat—her words—to another, it’s time for Clint’s one-on-one. Kaitlyn all but comes right out and says that Clint’s drawing of Chris Harrison riding a triceratops got him this date, so he better not mess it up now.

Gisele, the underwater photographer—I feel like it isn’t good for your career to limit yourself to one photographic specialty—takes them through what they’ll be doing and gets them to their wardrobe fitting. Once dressed, Gisele—photographer/yogi/sex guru?—takes them through some breathing exercises to calm them before she tells them that this date will pretty much tell them whether they have any sort of chemistry. But before they take the (literal) dive, let’s check in at the house, where Tony is pissed that the guys had to box each other, because this competition should NEVER lead to violence. Then, over dinner, Kaitlyn says she likes the fact that Clint, the architectural engineer, has his shit together. (Read: Is filthy rich) Then he gives a cheesy toast, and she returns the favor by giving him a rose.
