The rose ceremony may have been canceled last week, and a few guys sent packing, but “The Bachelorette” Season 19 continues Monday with Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey, the first dual stars of a season. The women still have to sort through a veritable herd of men, with 29 guys left.

So, what’s in store for Season 19, Episode 2? Here’s the description: “Following last week’s shocking canceled rose ceremony, Gabby and Rachel surprise the 29 men left at the mansion by daring them to compete in a swimsuit pageant in order to earn one of six spots at the group date after-party. The next morning, Rachel takes off for her first one-on-one with a once-in-a-lifetime Zero-G Experience, followed by a surprise musical performance by Ashley Cooke and Brett Young. Then, after a helicopter ride above Los Angeles and a steamy hot tub session, Gabby begins to let her walls down during her own one-on-one. Back at the mansion, when bold assumptions are revealed at the cocktail party, Rachel and Gabby continue to prove to the men that they are in control of their own journeys.”
Well, it wouldn’t be an episode of a “Bachelor” franchise show without an appearance by a musical act that many of us have never heard of. And, of course, we can’t have a week go by without the word “journey” being uttered a zillion times. So, we’re ready for tonight, right?
