Down To Final 12 On THE BACHELOR ROME - Three Go Home Monday

Prince Lorenzo Borghese Singles Out One Lucky Girl For An Individual Date To Villa Borghese, While Two Sneaky Cindarellas Hide In His Bedroom After Hours, On ABC′S THE BACHELOR: ROME

The Competition Heats Up with Historic Sightseeing on Italian Scooters and a Party on the Mediterranean Coast

As twelve bachelorettes settle into their Tuscan villa, Prince Lorenzo Borghese escorts some of the ladies to the historic sites of the city via Italian scooters, and others to Italy′s Mediterranean coast. One lucky bachelorette is singled-out for an individual date with the Prince to Borghese Villa, on THE BACHELOR: ROME, Monday, October 9 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Lorenzo′s first one-on-one date goes to Lisa, who received the first impression rose and the two-carat diamond earrings, which drives the other women insanely jealous. He takes Lisa to Villa Borghese, the Central Park of Rome, for a full day of getting to know each other. The rest of the women are split into two dates, half on an historic tour of Rome via Italian scooters, while the other half are flown in helicopters to the Italian Mediterranean for a wild beach party. At the beach, a game of tackle bikini football breaks out, and one bachelorette, Kim, has a little too much to drink in the hot sun and embarrasses herself by passing out in front of Lorenzo -- a first in BACHELOR history.

As the pressure to get a rose heats up, one bachelorette, Erica, has an emotional breakdown, while Lisa is verbally attacked by some jealous women and breaks into tears. The competition is apparent when two others secretly sneak into the Prince's bedroom. At the rose ceremony, Prince Lorenzo must send 3 girls home in heartbreak, as he narrows the field from 12 bachelorettes to 9.
