Joey Graziadei was stunned when Maria Georgas threatened to leave after seeing him kiss another contestant on Monday’s two-hour episode of The Bachelor on ABC.

‘I don’t know if I can do this anymore,’ admitted Maria, 29, an executive assistant from Ontario, Canada.

She  told Joey, 28, that the Hometown dates mean a lot to her because she hadn’t introduced anyone to her family that wasn’t truly hers. Maria said that it worried her because Joey had connections with the other women.

‘You always discredit what we have,’ Joey said.

‘I’m obviously shocked,’ Joey said. ‘I didn’t expect this. I want you to know how much I truthfully care and that my biggest fear in all of this is not only the fact that this wouldn’t work for me, but that the right person possibly couldn’t see themselves doing this, in this way, because I know I have a lot of great women here that I do have connections with. But you were one of them.’

‘I just can’t do it anymore,’ Maria said.

‘I want someone to choose me,’ Joey said. ‘I thought we were going somewhere.’

Joey asked Maria if her mind was made up and she said, ‘I think it is.’

Maria got up and started crying as she walked away.

The beautiful brunette told a producer that she only wanted to be with Joey.

‘I just don’t like that I can’t say he’s mine,’ Maria said.

Joey said he didn’t know what to do at this point. Maria then walked back in the room and told Joey that she might have overreacted.

‘I think out loud a lot,’ Maria said. ‘I don’t want you to ever think that it’s you that I’m running from. Because of how I feel with you, I’m scared. I don’t like seeing you with the other women.’

Joey told her that he also had fears.

‘It seems like you were about to walk out,’ Joey said. ‘Whoever I choose at the end, I’m in. Nothing I see, nothing I hear will change from where I’m at, because that’s how I am. And you have to start believing that it can be you. I need someone that’s in it fully.’

When the season 28 episode started, there were six women left looking forward to spending more time with Joey in scenic Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada. 

A date card arrived at their cabin that was for Daisy Kent, 25, an account executive from Becker, Minnesota, and read ‘let’s ride out into the sunset together.’

Jennifer ‘Jenn’ Tran, 25, a physician assistant from Miami, got upset because she did not get the one-on-one date card, while Daisy was going on her second one-on-one with Joey.

‘It definitely is a lot harder than I thought it would be,’ Jenn said in a confessional. ‘It’s tough to see him have such strong connections with women.’

Daisy met Joey for a horseback riding date. Joey told her it was his first time riding a horse.

‘This is so beautiful,’ Joey said. ‘I’ve got you. I’ve got these mountains.’

They rode to a hot tub, changed and then got in it.

‘Every time I’m with him, I’m so happy, and I feel so good,’ Daisy said in a confessional.

Daisy also admitted in a confessional that she wasn’t in love with Joey yet.

Back at the lodge, another date card arrived and it was for Jenn; Maria; Kelsey Toussant, 31, an actress from Inglewood, California; and Rachel Nance, 26, an ICU nurse from Honolulu, Hawaii, and read ‘Let’s take our love to the great outdoors.’

Jenn remained upset that she didn’t get the one-on-one and so was Maria.

Daisy and Joey went out for dinner and Daisy was determined to tell him how she felt about him.

‘I really, really like you but like am I there yet?’ Daisy said. ‘No. The thing is I can see us being so great together. And I can see myself falling in love with you if I’m being honest.’

‘It’s not what I want,’ Joey said in a confessional. ‘I would love for her to be there. That’s a fear. I need to feel that level of confidence before I meet her family.’

‘I really, really like you but like am I there yet?’ Daisy said. ‘No. The thing is I can see us being so great together. And I can see myself falling in love with you if I’m being honest’

Daisy said she was feeling more and more for him every time they were together. Joey reached over and picked up the rose. He said he appreciated her honesty and told her what she said didn’t scare him.

‘I really want to meet your family,’ Joey said.

‘I’m so excited you have no idea,’ Daisy said.

Joey said in a confessional that he sees potential with Daisy.

‘Daisy’s worth it because of the way she makes me feel,’ Joey said.

The next day Joey met the four women for the last group date. He took them to learn how to become ‘lumberjills’ by chopping wood and axe throwing. Maria was not happy about being on a group date.

‘I feel like I need to let my anger out,’ Maria said in a confessional.

The women put on flannels and then competed in a ‘lumber jill’ competition, rolling, flipping, and cutting logs and drinking Elk milk, Kelsey T. won the competition. When Joey was taping a confessional, Jenn interrupted him for a good luck kiss and the other women were angered when they saw them kissing.

‘Seeing Jenn kiss Joey made me sick to my stomach,’ Maria said. ‘This is just too much.’

At night, Joey pulled the women aside for one-on-one discussions. Jenn told Joey she was excited for him to meet her family, but that she was nervous because she had never brought anyone home before. 

Kelsey T. told Joey her feelings for him were strong but that her father doesn’t even know that she was on the show. 

Maria was getting stressed out just waiting to talk to Joey.

‘There is other women being involved,’ Maria said. ‘It’s not normal. ‘

At the end of the night, Joey said he could not give out the group date rose because he needed more time.

The next day Joey went on a date with Kelsey A. They walked through town and then did Jasper’s polar plunge. They took their robes off and then jumped into the freezing water. Joey and Kelsey A. kissed in the freezing water.

‘She made the entire experience even more special,’ Joey said.

Afterwards, they went into a sauna and kissed. Kelsey A. told him the polar plunge was scary but telling him that she was falling in love with him was scarier. Kelsey got upset telling him about how she lost her mother to cancer but that she had her father to support her. Joey picked up the rose and told Kelsey A. that she makes him  happy and that he wants to meet her father and her siblings.

‘I got Joey’s coming to New Orleans rose,’ Kelsey A. said.

Back at the house, Maria regretted telling Joey that she considered leaving. Rachel also said she was nervous.

‘At this point going home would be devastating,’ Jenn said.

Show host Jesse Palmer, 45, then walked in and told the women there would not be a cocktail party, but instead they would be going straight to the rose ceremony.

‘Finding your person isn’t easy, but I’m here to find my wife,’ Joey said. ‘And I’m really, really confident that she’s in this room tonight.’

First, Joey pulled Maria aside to chat. He said he wanted to feel confident that she wanted to be with him and not begging her to stay. Maria told him that she liked him a lot, but just didn’t like seeing him with other women.

Joey returned to the room and gave the final two roses to Rachel and Maria sending Kelsey T. and Jenn home.

‘This is a big rose,’ Joey told the remaining women. ‘This means I’m about to meet your families.’

The Bachelor will return next Monday on ABC.
