The Bachelor star Colton Underwood eliminated Tracy Shapoff and Courtney Curtis during Monday night's Season 23 broadcast on ABC.

"It says a lot about someone if you already have a rose and spend your time [with Colton] bashing another female. Actually, Demi is the cancer of the house," Courtney said following her ouster.

"They all know why. Colton will realize it, and if he doesn't down the line, he will realize it when it's too late. But I can't help him anymore. I'm gone."

The Bachelor broadcast began with the following women competing for Colton's heart: Tracy, Courtney, Cassie Randolph, Tayshia Adams, Hannah Godwin, Caelynn Miller-Keyes, Elyse Dehlbom, Heather Martin, Onyeka Ehie, Nicole Lopez-Alvar, Kirpa Sudick, Demi Burnett, Sydney Lotuaco, Katie Morton, and Hannah Brown.

Hannah B. said she woke up in the mansion "emotionally exhausted" after Caelynn had told Colton she was "manipulative, hostile and deceitful." Hannah B. didn't really know where she stood with Colton, but she was hoping to find out.

Chris Harrison then paid the women a visit at The Bachelor mansion and informed them they were headed to Singapore, the farthest destination the show has ever traveled.

Colton seemed to accept the fact Hannah B. and Caelynn just weren't going to get along, so he was going to take their feud at face value.

Tayshia and Colton have a 1-on-1 date

Once the girls moved in to their hotel suite, a Date Card arrived and revealed Tayshia would be accompanying Colton on the first one-on-one date of the week.

Colton said his relationship with Tayshia wasn't as far along as some of his other romances, but he acknowledged he could always be himself around Tayshia and have fun with her. He was therefore really looking forward to their date.

Colton was tired of playing it safe in life to keep his body healthy and protected for professional football, so he decided to take Tayshia bungee jumping, which all but terrified them both. Tayshia noted the jump was about 1,000 feet.

The couple conquered one of their fears together, and it clearly brought them closer to together. Afterward, Colton and Tayshia enjoyed a beach day, cuddling in the sand and then kissing in the ocean at sunset.

At dinner that night, Tayshia had a heavy topic to open up about. She said while she's "just a genuinely happy person," it hasn't just been "all roses" in her life.

Tayshia revealed the past year-and-a-half had been hard for her because she got married and divorced. She had married her first boyfriend, whom she had dated for six years.

As a Christian woman, Tayshia only wanted to get married once, and she said she put everything into her marriage -- and expected her partner to do the same. However, Tayshia noted she couldn't force her husband to want to be married.

But Tayshia explained to Colton if she hadn't gone through all of that, she wouldn't be on this date with him.

She feels everything happens for a reason and the difficult experience she went through brought her to Colton.

Colton then disclosed his parents are divorced and he was glad Tayshia made the best decision for her in terms of what makes her happy.

Colton then told Tayshia to keep smiling because "it's the sexiest thing."

Tayshia told Colton she knows exactly what she wants in a man, and when she does get married again, it's "going to be amazing."

Colton then gave Tayshia a rose, as he was thankful she had shared her story that night. The couple topped the night by going on a romantic ferris wheel and enjoying some champagne.

"I feel like these feelings are very real and we have a really good foundation at this point. If things keep going the way they are going, I could definitely see myself falling in love with Colton," Tayshia said in a confessional.

Colton has a group date with 13 women

The next day, Colton embarked on a group date with Hannah G., Elyse, Kirpa, Sydney, Heather, Onyeka, Tracy, Demi, Nicole, Courtney, Katie, Cassie, and Hannah B.

Colton wanted the ladies to experience a new culture and be open to trying new things. The group therefore explored the city's colorful street markets and were confronted with a leech therapy center as well as eating exotic dishes such as bullfrogs and fish eyes.

"I thought Caelynn stayed at home, but the leech followed me here!" Hannah B. quipped with an actual leech on her stomach.

Demi worked to "overshadow" her competition throughout the date, and while the women were annoyed, they didn't want to battle her all day.

Meanwhile, Hannah B. felt Colton was avoiding her on the date and paying attention to everyone else.

For example, Colton and Cassie sat down and listened to a fortune teller, who told the couple they were siblings in a past life.

Hannah B. was trying not to get in her head about the situation, but she couldn't help it.

Colton definitely saw a spontaneous and adventurous side of the girls that day, which he said are qualities he wants in his future wife.

That night, Colton and the bachelorettes enjoyed an afterparty, but time was limited considering 13 women were vying for the Bachelor's time and affection.

Hannah B. quickly stole Colton away for a chat and admitted the previous week was "really tough" for her. She asked Colton to trust her noble character and confessed she was scared Colton questioned who she is as a person.

Colton said he came to the conclusion he was okay with Hannah B. and Caelynn "not seeing eye to eye" as long as their feud didn't affect his relationships with them. Colton said the only reason he was so hard on Hannah B. to begin with was because he liked her so much.

"I think it's a very good possibility I could fall in love with [Colton]," Hannah B. said after Colton insisted he felt great about their dynamic again.

Colton then sat down with Cassie and the couple engaged in a passionate kiss.

"I feel Cassie and I have an undeniable connection. She makes me so comfortable and really just allows me to be myself. I really do feel like I've known Cassie much longer than I have," Colton told the cameras.

Courtney was waiting patiently and being respectful to the other girls as the night went on, but she really needed some time with Colton to advance their connection.

Demi said Courtney's approach to this process was "lazy" and so she had no right to be pissed off all the time. In fact, Demi insisted Courtney had "dug her own grave" and would probably be going home.

When Demi got some alone time with Colton, she showed him a more serious and mature side to herself.

"There's some stuff going on back home that is really hard for me to talk about. This week actually, my mom was released from federal prison. Having to see someone you love so much being stuck in a place they don't want to be and going through all of that stuff, you just want to take them out of it," Demi explained.

"My mom might be really messed up, but that woman loves me so much. And know matter what she does, I love her unconditionally."

Colton called Demi "a special person" for being so strong through her struggle at home, and he promised her that he wouldn't judge her or her family based on this new revelation. Demi could tell Colton had feelings for her and cared about her.

Demi and Courtney then butted heads because Demi went in for a second chat with Colton before Courtney even got her first conversation. Demi, however, told Courtney she wasn't being aggressive enough and going after what she wants.

Courtney then questioned Demi's age, saying her actions and behavior suggested a lack of maturity.

"You have the right to feel that way, and I have the right to not care because you've been really rude to me in this whole entire conversation. So, I'm over you," Demi said, before Courtney called her "rude."

Courtney also suggested Demi didn't carry herself with class and she lacked respect for others.

"Courtney is very intimidated by my confidence... Courtney puts the 'ass' in class," Demi told the cameras.

After talking with all of the girls -- except for Courtney -- Colton offered Demi the group-date rose, and then Courtney ran away and broke down into tears.

Caelynn and Colton have a 1-on-1 date

The next day, Caelynn embarked on a one-on-one date with Colton.

Colton revealed he was going to spoil and pamper Caelynn and take her shopping, and the bachelorette noted this date was worth all of the "B-S" she was going through in the house.

Caelynn ended up trying on a variety of fashions -- including jackets and gowns -- by Lisa Von Tang. Colton gushed about their incredible chemistry, and Caelynn couldn't believe Colton catered to her all day.

Before the dinner portion of her date, Caelynn returned to the hotel with two arms full of shopping bags. Caelynn was giddy with excitement, and all of the other girls were clearly jealous.

It was hard for Cassie, especially, to see the man she was dating spoil another woman, and she cried in a confessional.

That night, Caelynn and Colton enjoyed a romantic dinner. Caelynn could see a future with Colton, but because of that, she felt the need to open up about something very serious that had happened to her in the past -- something that has left her with intimacy issues.

Caelynn said she felt "good" with Colton and like she could be herself around him.

Caelynn reveals she was sexually assaulted

With that being said, Caelynn showed an extremely vulnerable side of herself in revealing she had been sexually assaulted during her sophomore year of college in October 2014.

Caelynn and a few girlfriends went to her male friend's house and the guys had drugged their wine.

"I woke up the next morning and I was completely naked in my bed and have no memory of the night before," Caelynn said.

"I had a small vision of a guy in my bed and I just had this pit in my stomach, like, 'Something really bad happened last night.'"

Caelynn said two of her girlfriends were also sexually assaulted that night.

"[They] passed out on a bed at the party and two men came in and had sex with them in the same bed at the same time while they were incapacitated," Caelynn told Colton.

As for the third girl who didn't drink the wine that night, she informed Caelynn a man had sex with her and another guy molested her when she was passed out on a couch with his fraternity brothers watching, laughing and taking photos.

Caelynn said the experience was "absolutely horrible" and she was turned away by a hospital when she sought out a rape kit the next day.

"I went to another hospital, they did a rape kit, but the results were inconclusive because so much time had passed because the first hospital turned me away. The men got away with it, except for one, who did get expelled," Caelynn recalled.

Colton couldn't even imagine going through something like that, and he admitted it was "devastating" to hear that happened to her.

Caelynn said she was determined to get justice and the event was something that will always be a part of her. She struggled with "shame and guilt" and admitted the experience was "so painful."

Caelynn admitted it took months for her to even feel comfortable with a man touching her shoulder and she hid in her dorm room for a while. Caelynn hid the incident from her family for almost a year, but she ended up seeking solace from her loved ones.

Caelynn told Colton the incident did not "diminish" who she is and she felt really safe with him.

Caelynn's vulnerability led Colton to share he had been in a relationship in which she had been sexually abused.

"For me, that was the hardest thing I ever had to watch -- going through something with someone, looking into her eyes and just knowing the pain associated with it," Colton confessed. "Who am I to feel the pain when I wasn't the victim?"

Caelynn, however, said that's not true because her assault affected every person who loves her in her life.

Colton admitted sex didn't happen with his first love due to intimacy issues stemming from her assault, and so the reason why he's still a virgin is "complicated."

Caelynn felt like she had been through hell and back but she's "way stronger" now than she ever could have imagined.

Caelynn could see herself falling in love with Colton and felt very confident in what they had.

Hannan B. and Caelynn call a truce

It then became time for the cocktail preceding the season's next Rose Ceremony.

Colton took Hannah G. to his room in the hotel and fireworks were flying. The couple engaged in a steamy makeout session in his bed, rolling around with each other.

Hannah G. was having trouble opening up to Colton, but she promised to try harder. Colton was glad to hear that because he admitted to not knowing much about this girl who made him feel incredible.

In a shocking twist of events, Hannah B. and Caelynn then sat down with each other and hashed things out. Caelynn suggested they keep the past in the past and enjoy their respective moments with Colton, and Hannah B. completely agreed.

The girls knew the competition was hard enough without being at each other's throats, and so they exchanged apologies and decided to move on from the tension and drama.

Demi then sat down with Colton and told him Courtney was "the cancer of the house" and had "attacked" her. Demi added Courtney is "definitely not deserving" of his heart and it killed her to waste her time talking about this.

Colton didn't expect the girls to get along, but he insisted it's never right for a person to be verbally abusive.

Colton confronted Courtney with Demi's accusations, and she couldn't believe what she was hearing. Courtney argued Demi was actually the cancer in the house and she wasn't there for Colton.

"The fact you're the Bachelor and this is a TV show is why she's here," Courtney said of Demi. "That's all she ever says -- that this is a game and she's going to play the game her way."

Colton started to question and doubt his relationship with Demi, wondering if he was getting to know the real Demi.

Courtney told the cameras that when someone questions her character, the claws come out. And things quickly escalated into a fight between Demi and Courtney without Colton in the room.

Demi said Courtney was being "very mean" to her, and then Courtney requested she should "take a timeout."

It then became time for the Rose Ceremony and Colton handed out roses in the following order: Hannah G., Heather, Kirpa, Hannah B., Katie, Elyse, Sydney, Cassie, Nicole, and Onyeka.

"Ding dong, the b-tch is dead! Dr. Demi cut out the cancer. If Courtney had listened to me and done what I told her to do on that group date -- about changing her mentality and having a more positive attitude -- she might still be here," Demi said.

"But she made the mistake of f-cking with me, and now she's out the door!"
