During the second episode of The Bachelorette, Season 13, Rachel meets ten of the guys at a school gymnasium for basketball. But first, noted Bachelorette fans Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are on hand to test the contestants' marriage-making credentials. Everyone is stunned when a surprise guest appears to see Rachel. The Bachelorette is challenged to remain strong and focus on her ultimate goal of finding a soul mate, on "The Bachelorette", MONDAY, MAY 29 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EDT), on the ABC Television Network.

"Bachelorette" contestants who have girlfriends back home is nothing new - the franchise has a long and embarrassing history of men who stretch the truth about their relationship status.

Where, when and how can you catch the latest episode The Bachelorette?

Who did Rachel Lindsay, the first African-American The Bachelorette, pick to be the man she's now engaged to?


For the last leg of the episode, shit got really, really real.

As the men all try to justify their continued existence in the pack, including one guy who whips out a massage table to give her a quick rub down, Rachel slowly gets over DeMario's treachery. Lucas proves he's annoying again by lifting and spinning Rachel around, despite her having just told him to remember that she's wearing a dress. She then headed out on a group date with Dean, Iggy, Kenny, Jonathan, Lucas (aka "Whaboom"), and Blake (Whaboom's number one enemy). It's still fairly early in the season at the moment, but it remains to be seen just who is going to be proclaimed the villain for the first part of the season. "I don't want to be made a fool of and so if anybody else has a girlfriend, please just tell me now". When Mila told him he was jumping to conclusions, he argued, "I knew on day one". Why not Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis? Seriously! Not some D-list band that no one's heard of - there are actual famous people on this season of "The Bachelorette". They joke about how proud they are that all the guys have a job; then Ashton informs them of their challenge ahead. It's ridiculous because who mails keys to the address where they work? A few stray observations regarding the race: They blur the baby doll poop ... Will feels Lee is taking his confidence a little too far.

While Copper did crash Rachel's one-on-one date with Peter, The Bachelorette star told Kimmel her canine bestie "wasn't there for every single episode". The men are made to change a diaper so dirty that the censors blurred it. Station 2, they need to put on the baby bjorn, put the inside and vacuum to the end of the lane. The sneak peek begins with Rachel standing near the barbecue. She had two group dates and a one-on-one date. I had my doubts about him, but he's pretty adorable.

Kenny, Fred and Lucas quickly remove all the hair from the drain and are struggling to find the diamond ring in the next sink. And really, I think a guy who looks like Peter is the only kind of guy who would be able to keep my attention when there dozens of furry beauties are running around me - I think dog-loving Rachel would agree with me on that note.
