In Episode 5 airing on Monday, February 4 at 8PM ET/PT, Colton and his remaining ladies will travel to the romantic destination of Khao, Thailand.
While Colton probably anticipates an incredible, sexy week abroad, ABC teases "one of his biggest fears comes to fruition."
Heather will be the lucky woman to receive Colton's first one-on-one date.
The couple will enjoy a scenic boat ride along Thailand's coast, which lands them at the "floating city" of Ko Panyi, which is built on stilts, according to ABC.
Heather, who has never been kissed before, will probably be looking to change that.
Their bond will strengthen as they shop, sightsee and sample local exotic foods.

But ABC says Elyse will surprise Colton with a late-night visit that leads to "a game-changing bombshell."
Elyse decides she urgently needs to talk to Colton and takes matters into her own hands. Her unexpected visit will apparently change everything for the couple.
Carbone reports that Elyse decides to quit in the fifth episode because her relationship with Colton hasn't advanced much since their first one-on-one date together and she feels their spark has burnt out.
The next day, Colton and 10 women will trek through the wild Thai jungle, navigating the tough conditions.
"But the Bachelor sneaks away with one smitten bachelorette for some steamy alone time," teases ABC.
Carbone reports the group date will be comprised of Hannah B., Onyeka, Nicole, Caelynn, Tayshia, Hannah G., Katie, Demi, Sydney, and Kirpa.
Hannah B. will reportedly earn the group-date rose.
Cassie will then score the final one-on-one date in Thailand, and the couple will be left to their own devices on a deserted island. She will receive a rose on this date.
At the subsequent cocktail party, ABC says things quickly turn hostile and Colton will find himself, once again, caught "in the middle of a firestorm between two women."
The episode reportedly ends will Colton eliminating Nicole and Onyeka.
Episode 6 of The Bachelor will reportedly take place in Nha Trang, Vietnam, where Colton enjoys two one-on-one dates with Hannah G. and Kirpa, who both end up receiving a rose on their respective dates.
The rest of the bachelorettes will reportedly go on a jungle-inspired group date, and then Demi will be eliminated after visiting Colton's hotel room.
Carbone says Colton did not reciprocate Demi's strong feelings, and so he decides to let her go ahead of the Rose Ceremony.
But again, Colton finds himself at the mercy of his bachelorettes and their feelings for him when Sydney decides to quit the show because she's also missing a solid connection with Colton.
And then drama will unfold when two bachelorettes are reportedly thrown under a bus by Katie.
"Katie tells [Colton] that Caelynn and Cassie were talking about being the Bachelorette, they weren't genuine, and they weren't here for him and he wasn't happy. But he sends Katie home at the rose ceremony," Carbone claimed.
That will leave on seven girls in the running to become Colton's fiancee in Episode 7.
Tayshia, Caelynn and Hannah B. will each reportedly receive a one-on-one date with Colton during this episode.
Colton and Tayshia will be shown walking around Union Station with Colton's dog Sniper and enjoying some drinks and ice cream.
Unfortunately for Hannah B., however, she gets eliminated during her one-on-one date, according to Carbone, but the other two ladies receive roses.
Carbone claims Caelynn will have a good shot to become the nextThe Bachelorette star, as her heartwrenching story of a college sexual assault will resonate with viewers. It's also apparent she's likeable and sincere, except for Hannah B.'s prior allegations she is fake.
Colton and his Final 3 bachelorettes then travel to Sagres, Portugal, for a week of overnight Fantasy Suite dates.
This is the part of the season when drama reaches a tipping point, and it just so happens to be at the time Colton may be looking to lose his virginity.
During filming, Colton allegedly took advantage of only two Fantasy Suite dates, instead of the usual three.
Colton first enjoyed an overnight date with Tayshia that taped on November 6 at the famous lighthouse on Cabo de Sao Vicente, Carbone reports.
And then the former football player's second Fantasy Suite date was with Cassie, and the romantic evening taped on November 8.
Colton reportedly determined at some point during his Fantasy Suite date with Cassie that she's the one!
Carbone says Colton made up his mind about being in love with only Cassie before he even had a chance to enjoy an overnight date with the gorgeous Hannah G.
This is why Colton's season is so different and shocking compared to seasons past, because most leading men and women of the franchise end up being torn between their Final 2 options. Take for instance Rachel Lindsay, Ben Higgins and Arie Luyendyk Jr.!
Although Colton determined Cassie is the woman he wants to be with forever, Carbone revealed in his podcast in December 2018 that Cassie quit the show before Colton could even give her the final rose!
Cassie reportedly realized she's not ready to settle down or accept a Neil Lane diamond ring from Colton in the end.
"Cassie told him, 'I don't want to be engaged,'" Carbone disclosed in his podcast.
"She essentially pulled a [Peter Kraus]. Like, 'I'm 23, like, I don't want to be engaged.' And I'm being told -- and I can't 100 percent confirm this -- but I'm being told this is where the fence jump happened. Because on that overnight date, Cassie left the show."
Cassie's decision to quit was allegedly the moment when Colton jumped a fence and yelled he was "done" with the show, as previously shown in an ABC trailer for Season 23.
When Colton jumped the fence, he left Chris Harrison calling for him several yards away in a total panic. Harrison has said in interviews he may or may not have been part of the reason Colton jumped that fence.
Colton therefore reportedly decided to dump both Hannah G. and Tayshia in the hope of making something work with Cassie in the real world. (He allegedly dumped Hannah before entering their Fantasy Suite).
As a result, Carbone suggests there will be no Final 3 Rose Ceremony or Final Rose Ceremony that will air on ABC.
According to Carbone, Cassie actually returned home to California after quitting the show -- and Colton then also returned to America and essentially chased her down.
The Bachelor's production crew reportedly filmed Colton tracking Cassie down in the Los Angeles area and telling her that he'd still like to be with her regardless of whether they get engaged.
Carbone is unsure how many days elapsed between Cassie's exit in Portugal and when cameras taped her in California, but he assumes production gathered in Huntington Beach, where Cassie lives with her parents.
"Colton comes to Cassie and basically says, 'We don't need to be engaged, but I want to be with you.' And that's where we are for right now," Carbone said.
Carbone had been hearing Cassie would probably be Colton's winner since mid-October. In fact, the spoiler blogger said from the start he would be "stunned" if Cassie didn't receive his final rose.
So are Colton and Cassie still together? What is the latest on their slow-moving romance?
Colton's desperate plea to Cassie reportedly resulted in the couple choosing to continue dating each other but taking an engagement off the table since Cassie is only 23 years old.
Carbone says Colton and Cassie are still together and will share a relationship update with fans in a couple of months when The Bachelor: After the Final Rose airs on ABC.
"My guess is Cassie is very young, and her feeling of, back in November, telling Colton, 'I'm not ready to be engaged,' [is] probably still going to stand in March. But that's just a guess. We'll see what happens," Carbone predicted.
However, Cassie appeared to play up the rumors and spoilers about her relationship with Colton in a recent Instagram post.
Cassie posted a photo of herself flipping a tire on the group date in which the girls had participated in a "Bachelor's Strongest Woman" contest.
"Caption Options: 1. When you gotta secure the ring 2. Get this ring away from me. I'm not ready for that...Or am I? 3. Hey @neillanejewelry ... do you make rings this big?" Cassie teased in the caption.
Maybe Cassie is ready for an engagement after all! Fans will probably be delighted to hear from them on After the Final Rose.
Carbone concluded his podcast last month by apologizing for previously incorrectly reporting Colton and Cassie were engaged.
"I apologize for reporting that they are engaged. They are not," Carbone said, referring to his initial set of spoilers that he had to correct.
"But he definitely chose Cassie, and they are definitely seeing each other, and have been seeing each other since the end of filming."
If the spoilers turn out to be accurate, Bachelor Nation will miss out on a lot of typical footage from The Bachelor season -- including the Final 2 women meeting with Colton's family and the Final 2 women's last one-on-one dates with Colton in Spain.
