  The drama continues to escalate as 14 fortunate bachelorettes try to stake their claim to Brad's heart. Brad is overwhelmed by all the connections he is feeling with a number of women and consults his therapist, who assures Brad that he owes it to himself - as well as to the women - to explore the bonds he is forming with them. Heeding his therapist's advice, Brad pulls out the delighted Emily for a surprise picnic in front of the mansion during the cocktail reception, causing a massive outpouring of envy and resentment from the other women and bringing one to tears. After a tense rose ceremony, 11 women remain to begin the fabulous worldwide travel with Brad, on "The Bachelor."    BRAD WOMACK, MICHELLE <span class=meta>(Photo/Rick Rowell)</span>
