|1||"Week 1: Limo Arrivals"||May 24, 2010|
|Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky, who chose her job over bachelor Jake Pavelka (who then snubbed her when she changed her mind), gets to do the snubbing this time, sifting through 25 guys - eight of whom won't make it beyond the Season 6 premiere. They'll be eliminated after the initial get-togethers, in which one contestant does a backflip off the limousine, another shows her his Ali scrapbook and another serenades her on his ukulele. She also receives a marriage proposal.|
|2||"Week 2"||May 31, 2010|
|The 17 opening-episode survivors move into the Bachelorette mansion. Two get one-on-one dates (an outing to the Hollywood sign and a trip to Las Vegas for a private Jamie Cullum performance) while Ali accompanies 12 others to a charity photo shoot. Ali also gives and receives her first kisses of the contest; two guys almost come to blows; and three are sent home at the rose ceremony.|
|3||"Week 3"||June 7, 2010|
|Fourteen bachelors remain, nine of whom accompany Ali to a Barenaked Ladies performance (and are cast in one of the band's videos). Two guys get one-on-one dates, and for one it's a tightrope-walk (literally) in downtown L.A. A front-runner emerges at a rooftop party, and one guy surprises Ali at her house before three are sent home at the rose ceremony.|
|4||"Week 4: New York City"||June 14, 2010|
|Ali and her 11 suitors begin an around-the-world trip in New York, where she poses for InStyle magazine and takes seven guys to meet Thomas Schumacher, producer of Broadway's "The Lion King." One-on-one dates include a private Joshua Radin concert, and a helicopter tour and nighttime visit to the Museum of Natural History. Meanwhile, one bachelor decides to become Ali's protector and another discloses a personal secret. And before the tour heads to its next stop, Ali sends two home.|
|5||"Week 5: Iceland"||June 21, 2010|
|Ali and the nine remaining bachelors arrive in Iceland for horseback riding, spelunking, dunking in a geothermal spa and a revelation. There's also a poetry contest, with the winner touring Reykjavik with Ali, and a two-on-one date to an erupting volcano and an ice cave. Only one of those two guys return with Ali, and at the rose ceremony another guy is sent packing, leaving seven bachelors to accompany her to the tour's next stop: Istanbul.|
|6||"Week 6: Istanbul"||June 28, 2010|
|"The Bachelorette" world tour hits Istanbul, where Ali learns something disturbing about one of the seven remaining bachelors. She also takes one to a bathhouse, another to a bazaar and four others to a historic fort, where they slather themselves in olive oil and wrestle with each other to earn one-on-one time with her. Following the rose ceremony, five guys accompany Ali to the tour's next stop: Portugal.|
|7||"Week 7: Lisbon"||July 5, 2010|
|Ali lands in Portugal with five bachelors, and falls hard for one during a tour of Lisbon and dinner at a sixth-century castle. Other dates include a private concert by fado singer Maria João Quadros at the National Palace of Pena outside town, a carriage ride, a winery tour and a jaunt to the coast on scooters. Four men win roses and hometown visits from Ali.|
|8||"Week 8: Hometowns"||July 12, 2010|
|Ali returns to the U.S. with her final four for hometown visits, and she's impressed by all their families. Then it's back to the L.A. mansion for a pit stop (and a rose ceremony) before Ali and the three survivors head off again, this time to Tahiti.|
|9||"Week 9: Tahiti"||July 19, 2010|
|Ali and the three remaining bachelors arrive in Tahiti (the French Polynesian island Taha'a, to be precise) for sailing in a catamaran, frolicking in waters off a heart-shaped private island and, perhaps, fantasy-suite nights. One guy surprises Ali before she gives roses to the two survivors who will accompany her to Bora Bora, where she'll make her final choice.|
|10||"The Men Tell All"||July 26, 2010|
|Ali fields questions from host Chris Harrison and 14 of the men who are no longer in the hunt for roses. Kirk, Jonathan ("the weatherman") and the tattooed Kasey are among them; Justin, the wrestler with two girlfriends, isn't but he's talked about. So is Frank, who dumped Ali in Tahiti. Also: outtakes from the season and a preview of the Roberto-Chris L. finale.|
|11||"Finale"||August 2, 2010|
|Ali arrives in Bora Bora with two guys (Chris L. and Roberto) and one rose. Her family are also there---and they do her no favor by liking both bachelors equally. Later, Ali takes a huge risk.|
|12||"After the Final Rose"||August 2, 2010|
|"Bachelorette" Ali Fedotowski reviews her season, focusing on her Chris L.-Roberto decision in the finale in Bora Bora and her reaction to Frank's rejection of her in the Final 3 episode in Tahiti. Roberto and Chris are also on hand for the interview session, conducted by Chris Harrison.|
