Episode 5 of “The Bachelor” started with 11 girls last week, and ended with 11 girls after Kelsey’s panic attack. Viewers were left on the edge of their seats when the episode concluded with a “to be continued” screen instead of a rose ceremony. After a week of waiting, fans finally found out who Chris Soules decided to send home … and he claimed that certain events (ahem, Kelsey’s “panic attack”) didn’t influence his decision.
Carly, Britt and Whitney entered the rose ceremony safe. Chris handed the first rose to Jade, followed by Kaitlyn, Megan, Becca and Ashley. The final rose went to Kelsey, sending home Mackenzie and Samantha in the fifth elimination round.
