We’re two episodes into season 26 of The Bachelor and one thing is for sure: so far, things have been quite dramatic. In the second episode, in which Hilary Duff appeared as a guest, we watched Cassidy Timbrook and Shanae Ankney postulate themselves for the "villain" of the season title. 

If you’re lost, here is a recap. During the last episode, Clayton organized the first group date, in which the women had to decorate and plan a kid’s party. Long story short: Cassidy didn’t help at all and the rest of the women were (rightfully) upset. Among other things, that made Sierra tell Clayton that Cassidy had an affair back home. On the other hand, Shanae mocked Elizabeth for having AHDH and fans weren't happy about it. 

After Clayton found out about it, he felt confused and asked host Jesse Palmer if someone had ever taken a rose back before…. And we ended up there. So, yes, fans are eager to find out what’s going to happen next, especially after the show didn't air last week. 

The Bachelor 2022: When is episode 3 airing?

Episode 3 of the 26th season of The Bachelor will air on Monday, January 24, 2022. The show took a mini break as ABC aired last week the NFL wild card playoff game during the show’s regular 8 PM (ET) slot. 

Luckily, the wait will be only one week. So far, Cassidy, Sussy and Sarah received roses during dates, while Teddi received the first impression rose during Week 1. Clayton said about Teddi that she’s got him “feeling some type of way.” 

You can watch this season of The Bachelor live on fuboTV (free-trial) on Mondays 8 PM (ET). Also, you can watch the show on ABC. So far, ABC hasn’t yet officially confirmed The Bachelor's schedule for the remaining episodes.
