Last night we got to see the third episode of Peter's journey to find love. As the drama continues, there was a rose ceremony first in the Bachelor franchise. Lucky for you rose, lovers... Here's the full recap from last night! 

We were just in the aftermath of the #champagnegate drama when we left off last week and Kelsey is still crying when we start the new week off. Meanwhile, Victoria P. is getting ready for her one-on-one with Peter and he picks her up in a Vintage Pick-up truck where the two of them go on a country themed date. They do some line-dancing and Victoria opens up about her childhood and how her father died when she was very young and her mother "fell into addiction". She had to take care of her sister from a very young age and Peter was very sympathetic to her story.

#champagnegate drama: agree to disagree 

Back at the house, Kelsey and Hannah Ann are trying to sort their drama out and it's not really getting anywhere. Tears are flowing and the rest of the girls are over it. Alayah is also making waves in the kitchen, telling the other women that just because she's Miss Texas USA 2019 and does pageants, that doesn't mean she doesn't have a wild side. Cue the date card...

Group Date: "Extreme Pillow Fight Club"

The next morning, Kiarra, Sarah, Tammy, Kelley, Shiann, Savannah, Sydney and Alayah get a rude awakening by Demi Burnett (she's back!) on a bullhorn and two other women smacking them with pillows. The women are all given a bag containing "cute pajama lingerie sets" and head out to the Cowboy Palace Saloon. Inside, they find the two women beating each other up with feather pillows. Demi announces they are having an "Extreme Pillow Fight Club" date to get all their aggression out.

With comedy legend Fred Willard there to help Chris Harrison call out the actions, the fights all come down to the championship round between Sydney and Alayah. Alayah is triumphant and wins the competition. It seems as though the Bachelor himself is connecting to Alayah... which the other women aren't super stoked about. The beef between Alayah and Sydney continues into the cocktail hour. 

Is Alayah really fake? 

After Sydney tells Peter that some of the women are different when he's not there or the cameras are off, Peter immediately addresses all the women on the group date which just ends up being awkward. Obviously directed at Alayah by Sydney, this only escalates things even more. Sydney ends up getting the group date rose of the evening!

Peter ends up coming over the spend the next day at the pool with the women, however the drama with Alayah continues. Peter talks to all the women and they all are under the same impression as Sydney. After some confrontation, Peter decides he doesn't want to hang out anymore and takes some time before the rose ceremony. The women we will see next week are: Kelsey, Hannah Ann, Natasha, Lexi, Madison, Shiann, Kelley, Kiarra, Tammy, Savannah, Deandra... and then even though two roses are left, Chris Harrison removes one. The new "final rose" goes to Mykenna

The Bachelor: Does Alayah really go home? 

This means Alayah, Jasmine, Alexa and Sarah are going home. However, is this really the last we will see of Alayah? Peter confesses to producers that he doesn't "feel good right now." Low and behold, in the preview for next week the Alayah drama isn't over. Stay tuned...
