Frustrated by a belief that she was taking too long to open up, Jake decided not to give to a rose to Corrie, a 23-year-old wardrobe consultant from Kissimmee, FL, during Monday night's The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love broadcast in which he narrowed his group of bachelorette suitors to four women.
"I don't get it. Clearly I'm not the girl for him because I'm in this limo right now," Corrie said after her ouster. "Sometimes two people can be a good match and be attracted to each other but just not be there and I feel that was the case from Jake. I mean, or I just put a wall up."
"You know, I don't do good dating a guy who is dating other girls at the same time. I think that if me and Jake had been dating just each other and he hadn't of been dating four other women that things would have definitely been different," she added as she began to cry.
"I came here to get to know Jake and to see if he could be the person that I'm supposed to spend the rest of my life with and he wasn't. I was really sad."
While he had been physically attracted to Corrie, their budding relationship had been missing something, according to Jake.
"It was really sad seeing Corrie go tonight because I'm so attracted to her but I can't really ignore the fact that there was just something missing. It just didn't feel right," Jake said about Corrie, who had told The Bachelor star that she is a virgin who is saving herself for marriage.
"It's disappointing that she was taking so long to open up and I really, really worried that Corrie would never open up fully."
The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love's fifth episode began with Jake and the bachelorettes arriving in San Francisco and ending their California coastal road trip they had began in Los Angeles during last week's episode.
Once there, Jake met with the five women and explained there would be three one-on-one dates and one two-on-one date over the course of the next week, however none of the dates would be rose dates in which a bachelorette could be eliminated.
"You don't have to worry about a rose on a date anymore," Jake told the women.
After Jake left, the women opened a note which revealed that week's first date would be a one-on-one date with Tenley Molzahn, a 25-year-old college admissions representative from Newberg, OR.

"I'm so excited because I'm finally getting a one-on-one date with Jake," Tenley gushed. "[But] I'm a little nervous because it's finally here and there's been so much anticipation for this date. I feel really behind the other girls."
After leaving the San Francisco hotel that served as The Bachelor's base of operations for the week, Jake and Tenley took a trolley car to Chinatown, where they explored the shops and made fortune cookies.
Meanwhile, back at the hotel the other bachelorettes received a note that revealed the next date would be a two-on-one date featuring Vienna Girardi, a 23-year-old marketing representative from Sanford, FL, and Gia Allemand, a 26-year-old swimsuit model from New York, NY.
But knowing how much they disliked each other, Corrie -- the bachelorette who had retrieved the note -- decided to have some fun and initially claim that the date would involve Vienna and Ali Fedotowsky, a 25-year-old advertising account manager from Williamstown, MA.
"Just kidding!" Corrie shouted afterwards.
However although it was brief, Corrie's joke managed to revive the tension between Vienna and Ali, which had taken a turn for the worse when Vienna had overheard Ali whispering her frustration about Jake's decision to give Vienna a rose at the fourth episode's Rose Ceremony.
"You know what you did, you flipped out last night at the Rose Ceremony and were crying because I was [still] there," Vienna told Ali when she asked Vienna why she didn't want to discuss the two-on-one date with Ali in the room.
"How do you know that was because of you?" Ali asked.
"I was sitting right there when you were talking about it in front of everybody, I heard you. Like they [Corrie and Gia] were saying 'I can't believe she's doing this," Vienna replied.
"It had nothing to do with you," Ali told Vienna. "If you're right for Jake that is great.... I really feel like if Jake's attracted to who you are and your personality, it's so much different than mine [so] it just makes me question if I'm right for him. This isn't about who is a better person."
"Ali just pisses me off," Vienna told the cameras afterwards. "Honestly I don't know what Ali's thinking or why she's doing what she's doing but it's not going to break up Jake and I. Ali and I haven't gotten along since the beginning. I feel right now I want to go say something to Jake, I really do, because I can't handle this anymore."
Meanwhile, back on their date, Jake and Tenley enjoyed a romantic private date at the top of Pioneer Park's Coit Tower. In addition to discussing the reasons behind the failure of Tenley's first marriage -- which ended after her husband cheated on her -- the couple also talked about Jake's expectations of his future wife.
"I expect my wife to always, no matter what, have my back. No matter what," Jake told Tenley. "Respect for my wife is one of the most important things for me and to trust that I will love, honor and respect no matter. Even when I do something stupid and hurt her feelings."
"Cheating is a choice, you have to consciously make a choice. And the woman I marry will be the last woman I look at," he added.
Jake and Tenley both came away impressed from the date.
"My expectations were completely exceeded. We had such great conversation, it just naturally flowed, and the kisses were magical. It was terrific," Jake said. "We line up on so many things.
"Jake's such a beautiful man from the inside out," Tenley said. "[I was] standing at the top of Coit Tower kissing this beautiful man that has this amazing heart."
The next day, Vienna and Gia met Jake at Castello di Amorosa, a Napa Valley winery that features a replica medieval castle on the vineyard grounds.
After spending the afternoon enjoying a glass of wine and taking a tour of the castle, Jake and the women spent the evening lounging by one of its fireplaces and alternating one-on-one time with Vienna and Gia -- resulting in Vienna getting lost when she attempted to explore the castle's catacombs during Jake's time with Gia.
"It's not even funny, I'm freaking out right now," Vienna snapped after Jake and Gia tracked her down and surprised her. "It was dark and I was in the dungeon!"
Jake then escorted the women to their rooms for the overnight date and said goodnight before retiring to his own room. However Vienna had other ideas and decided to go visit Jake in his bedroom.
"I think she's making a big mistake. I mean everyone appreciates someone who is forward and just gets to the point, but for me, if I was Jake, that would be too much," Gia said. "Vienna just doesn't think what's right and wrong, she just does things without thinking."
"To new beginnings, and finding love... and not having to go back to my bed tonight," Vienna told Jake as she surprised him in bed with a couple of glasses of wine.
"I assure you, I had dirty thoughts, but I was really worried that Gia was thinking something was going on. Nothing was going to happen, it was 'Rated G' all the way," Jake explained afterwards. "It was really, really awkward. She could tell that I was uncomfortable. I [thought] Vienna needed to go back upstairs."
Afterward, Vienna wasn't sure how to interrupt Jake's rebuff.
"It's making me feel very unsure, I almost feel like I may have been hurting my chances by being down there. I don't know if he was happy I walked down there and saw him."
Meanwhile, back at the hotel, the remaining women learned that Jake's next one-on-one date would be with Corrie.
"I've been waiting a long time for this. I really just want to let Jake see my fun side. And I want to get to know him on a deeper level," Corrie said about her first one-on-one date with The Bachelor star.
"We're definitely behind in the progression of our relationship. Out of all the girls that are left I'm the only one who hasn't kissed Jake. You know I take things slow and I want a guy who is going to pursue me and come after me."
The next day, Corrie met Jake at a local park, where they spent the afternoon enjoying some private time in a rowboat but failed -- much to their common frustration -- to finally kiss.
"There was definitely a moment where we were close and I was thought 'Oh god, he might kiss me' but I wasn't sure whether I was ready and I am definitely not the kind of girl who goes in for the kiss," Corrie said afterwards. "I let him go 90% [and] I go 10%."
"I think a man should be the one to lean in and kiss a girl. I'll go 80%, you go 20%," Jake said. "I feel really good when I'm with Corrie but I just can't figure her out. The relationship is moving along really slow and that's okay but I need to figure out exactly why it's going so slow."
"When it came down to it, we didn't kiss and I think there is this cloud over us," Corrie said. "I have to be totally honest with Jake."
During their subsequent dinner at the California Academy of Sciences natural history museum, Corrie told Jake she was a virgin.
"I'm concerned, because our relationship has just moved really, really slow. I really like you and I was starting to get really, really worried that you just weren't going to open up and we were moving so slow," Jake told Corrie. "I find like today was kind of the do-or-die because you and I were really behind."
"I know I move slower than the other girls, but... I'll tell you anything you want to know," Corrie replied.
"If we're engaged, where would you want to live?" Jake asked.
"I would want to be in Dallas or where ever you were but I would have my own apartment and I would live there," Corrie answered.
"So how are you living with somebody before marriage?" asked Jake.
"[I wouldn't do it], because I just think that's part of marriage. I think that's part of the gift of marriage," Corrie said.
"Are you saving yourself for marriage?" Jake asked.
"I am," Corrie replied.
"I completely respect where you're coming from and that's not an issue for me," Jake said, after which the couple enjoyed their first kiss.
"Do you know how long I've been dying to do that?" he told Corrie afterwards.
"I feel really good right now," a relieved Corrie said after the date. "You know there's not a lot of guys out there that are as sensitive or understanding. Even though it was a really intense conversation I feel like we got over that now. I can definitely see myself being engaged to Jake at the end of this."
"I think the fact that Corrie is a virgin says a lot about her," Jake said. "I felt like that cleared the air a little bit. I can't tell you how much I respect the fact that she just opened up and told me. Tonight with Corrie was do-or-die and she opened up."
The next day, Jake met Ali for their one-on-one date -- however given she now lives in San Francisco, Jake allowed Ali to largely plan the afternoon.
"I'm really excited. I have a really opportunity to see if he fits into my world today," Ali said. "He's going to see my little neighborhood and he's either going to love it or I'm not going to get a rose [tonight]. I'm the first girl that's having a date right before the Rose Ceremony."
"You took me on our [earlier] one-on-one and showed me your [aviation] home away from home," Ali told Jake. "And I feel this is my opportunity to show you my home away from home, which is my neighborhood."
However after taking Jake on a tour of her favorite streets and enjoying a meal at a local restaurant, Ali also made it clear that she would be willing to leave San Francisco to be with Jake.
"Do you think you'd like Texas?" Jake asked.
"I know I would, I love Texas," Ali replied.
Afterward, the couple took a stroll along the shoreline and enjoyed the sunset, where Jake asked Ali about the comments she had made about Vienna at the prior Rose Ceremony.
"I just want you to be happy. I understand that you can love someone no matter what other people think and sometimes other people see things that you may not see. So sometimes I don't understand the decisions that you make," Ali told Jake.
"Do you have any specific questions you would like answered? I'll answer them if you want me to," Jake said.
"I don't need you to really answer anything for me. If you pick me then like I'm yours... but if you don't that's okay too because you do everything you can for something and then you just kind of got to leave it up to what's meant to be and that's kind of the place I'm at right now," Ali said. "I don't have questions about why certain people are here anymore."
"Are you sure?" Jake pushed.
"I want you to make the decisions that are right for you, and after this point maybe I would want to have a chat, I don't know," Ali replied.
"About Vienna?" Jake asked.
"Yeah," Ali said.
"You know, I hear what everyone is saying but I don't see that. When I'm with her she's so incredibly honest and she goes out of her way to let me know that she's here for me," Jake replied.
"I want you to do what you feel 100% and I've come to a point where I need to let go of it. I'm ready to let go of it," Ali told Jake.
"I definitely don't know why Jake has kept Vienna around," she explained after the date ended. "I don't understand it but it's not my business to understand it really. Because I'm really falling for him and that means I need to trust him through and through no matter what. I just think we have something so great.... I am so smitten with that boy."
That night, Corrie used the Rose Ceremony's cocktail party to attempt to doublecheck whether Jake was really comfortable with her virginity.
"Last night, I got just shaken up because I wasn't expecting to have that conversation there and then," she told him.
"It's just that's not something that defines me and I feel like when people -- like when you think of that you think of this -- you know you have this -- I don't know," she added as he struggled to explain herself.
"I'm glad that you told me," Jake interrupted. "You are not any different than how I hoped you'd be."
"Corrie doesn't want to be labeled or stereotyped but I wanted to let her know it's okay. You know, I'm not hanging onto that, it's not about sex appeal, this is about 'heart appeal,'" he explained afterwards.
However when it came time to give out his four roses, Jake apparently concluded that Corrie's "heart appeal" was lacking. After beginning the Rose Ceremony by giving roses to Tenley, Ali, and Gia, he revealed that Vienna would receive his final rose -- eliminating Corrie from the competition.
"You're amazing Corrie," Jake told her as she entered a waiting limousine.
"Good luck," she replied following a nervous laugh.
"I'm glad tonight is over. But I am definitely ready for [the] hometowns. I'm really excited to meet all of your families," Jake told the four remaining women after Corrie's departure. "I really am, I can't wait."
The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love's next episode will air Monday, February 8 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
