This week's The Bachelor Season 17 Week 4 episode was quite the whirlwind: private jets, rock climbing, a surprisingly rough-and-tumble group date followed by an ultra-romantic though less-than successful "Pretty Woman" one-on-one. Oh, and we can't forget Tierra's dramatic cries of torture and threats to leave the show, which, natch, promptly earned her a rose and a make-out sesh.
If you missed anything, or just need to know who went home on The Bachelor 2013 this week (Jan. 28), check out our full recap below!

Bachelor Season 17 Week 4 Recap: Who Went Home on The Bachelor 2013 (Jan. 28)
Selma scored the first one-on-one date with Bachelor Sean Lowe during this week's episode of The Bachelor, and was quickly whisked off in a private jet for a day of adventure in the Joshua Tree National Forest. Unfortunately for the pretty 29-year-old girly-girl, that included rock climbing in the heat, both of which left Selma a bit daunted. Luckily for her, she bucked up and pushed herself, excelling and impressing Sean. This earned her a sexy (but super modest; no on-screen kissing due to Selma's Arab family's strict cultural beliefs) dinner-for-two and a rose at the end of the night.
The group date was next, and Bachelor Sean took roughly eight of the girls to compete in a surprise roller derby competition. The girls suited up and promptly started falling down; Sarah, who lost an arm at birth, particularly struggled with this challenge. After a pep talk from Sean, Sarah stayed in the game. The competition part fell through, though, called off after tough-talking, fast-skating Amanda wiped out and busted her face on the ground. After she was whisked away for medical care, the group free-skated for the rest of the time.
Amanda rejoined the group date after a quick trip to the hospital. By this time, the girls and Bachelor Sean Lowe were having cocktails and rotating alone time on a gorgeous, furnished L.A. rooftop. Around this time, cue Tierra's seemingly-out-of-nowhere, made-for-TV meltdown moment. (Thank you, Tierra.)
As she stomped around the rooftop, fuming and muttering to herself and the other girls, Tierra could be heard threatening to leave. At one point, she appeared to approach a production staff member slightly off-camera and said something along the lines of, "I want to leave. Can I go?" Then she found Sean, interrupting him and another girl, and started crying on his shoulder that the show was "torture" and the other girls were too "fake".
So, is Tierra one of the girls who went home on The Bachelor 2013 tonight (Jan. 28)? Nope. Instead, Sean rewarded her tantrum with the group date rose, tossing around words like "insecurities" and "reassurance" in a voice-over explanation as the camera showed Sean and Tierra making out. Sigh. (But great acting job, Tierra!)
Bachelor Season 17 Week 4 Recap: Which Two Ladies Went Home Tonight?
Next up, Leslie H. got the one-on-one of her dreams, which is really nice because it would be her first and last. Following their very romantic one-on-one, which included a gift of pre-date diamond earrings and a private shopping spree on Rodeo Drive, among other luxuries, the two enjoyed a private dinner. Sadly for Leslie H., Bachelor Sean felt that although Leslie is a "beautiful, funny, caring, intelligent" girl, there was no romantic spark between them. "I can't put my finger on it, but the connection just isn't there."
Leslie's face crumbled when Sean told her he wasn't giving her the rose that had been on the table all night. As she got into the limo, she dutifully relinquished the 120-carat (!!!) diamond Neil Lane necklace that had been loaned to her as part of the dream date, but made off with gorgeous diamond earrings and a new luxury night-out outfit. Not too shabby, girl! We know diamonds aren't love, but hey, sometimes diamonds just last longer than a man's affections. This was one of those times.
During the rose ceremony, a dapper-looking Sean Lowe finally handed out roses to several more ladies before it came down to the standard two girls, one rose conundrum. Amanda and Daniella stood waiting nervously until Sean asked, "Daniella, will you accept this rose?" So long, Amanda! Love is a tough game, but you're a 26-year-old model who landed a call-back for one of the most coveted castings in reality TV; we're pretty sure you'll be just fine from here on out.
Tune in to ABC next week for the first two-night, two-episode week of The Bachelor 2013 so far, airing Monday and Tuesday night. Check local listings for times and channels.
