Week two of “The Bachelorette” kicks off in typical bachelorette fashion–with Chris Harrison talking about the “connection” that Kaitlyn had with some of the guys the first night. The guys are excited to explore their connection as well.

Britt is back too, showing her tear-filled phone call with her mom to tell her that she is not the new bachelorette. There’s an apparent silver lining, however, when Brady shows up at her room. He left the show in order to pursue Britt after Kaitlyn was made the bachelorette. Looks like Britt will be sticking around for a while.

The first group date also occurs! Daniel, Justin, Jared, Corey, Tanner, Kupah, Ben H and Ben Z are excited upon hearing their names called but that excitement quickly fades when they arrive at a “creepy” warehouse. The group date’s special guest star is Laila Ali and she teaches the guys how to box.

While the guys are training, Kaitlyn is still looking for them to interact with her, which Kupah does not do. Kaitlyn is not too impressed and she says that she even forgot that he was on the date. They later learn that they will be participating in a boxing match, which causes their excitement levels to drop yet again.

Entering the ring, the guys start throwing the punches. Some guys are a little more intense than others, ending with Jared getting knocked out by Ben Z in the last round. The doctor sends him off to the hospital, making him feel disappointed that he won’t be able to spend more time with Kaitlyn.

As Kaitlyn is mingling with the guys, she receives a mysterious note telling her to come downstairs and that someone needed to see her. Jared surprises her and they end up kissing. He said that his heart “never felt better.”

The next date card is delivered and Clint receives the first one-on-one date.

For the group date, Ben Z earns the rose, ensuring that he will stay until at least next week.

How did you feel about the boxing date?
