The Bachelorette star Hannah Brown eliminated Cameron "Cam" Ayala, Jonathan Saunders and Joey Jones and also revealed Tyler Gwozdz mysteriously "had to leave" during Monday night's Season 15 episode on ABC.

Prior to her second group date of the week, Hannah shared that Tyler, a 28-year-old psychology graduate student from Boca Raton, FL, "had to leave" for undisclosed reasons.

And then Hannah later denied roses to Cam, a 30-year-old in software sales from Austin, TX; Jonathan, a 27-year-old server from Los Angeles, CA; and Joey, a 33-year-old finance manager from Bethesda, MD, at the season's third Rose Ceremony.


The Bachelorette broadcast began with Hannah's suitors receiving a Date Card for the first group date of the week.

Cam was ousted after being accused of telling Hannah a sob story in order to receive "a pity rose."

"It's a tough pill to swallow to hear that someone you poured your heart out to calls you 'calculated.' It sucks, because if she truly knew Cam, she would know that's not in my nature," Cam explained.

"I came out here with the best of intentions. I still can't believe that after being the most vulnerable I've ever been, people were questioning my integrity."

The Date Card had the following men's names on it: Jonathan; Cam; Matteo Valles, a 25-year-old management consultant from Atlanta, GA; John Paul Jones, a 24-year-old from Lanham, MD; Kevin Fortenberry, a 27-year-old behavioral health specialist from Manteno, IL; Jed Wyatt, a 25-year-old singer and songwriter from Nashville, TN; Tyler Cameron, a 26-year-old general contractor from Jupiter, FL; and Mike Johnson, a 31-year-old portfolio manager from San Antonio, TX.

Jed said everyone was on edge because Cam had handled things poorly by crashing a previous group date he hadn't been invited to.

For the date, the guys met celebrity acting couple Jason Biggs and Jenny Mollen and learned they were going to participate in some activities designed to teach them about reproduction, the female anatomy, pregnancy, and the strength and pain a woman goes through from childbirth.

The men had their nipples pinched to resemble the pain of breastfeeding and even got hooked up to a labor-simulator machine so they could experience what intense contractions would feel like.


Hannah appreciated how all the guys were still smiling that night at the cocktail party after a wild day of putting them to the test.

During the afterparty for the group date, Jed got a kiss from Hannah and told her to chuck a chicken nugget off the roof and make a wish. He thought they had taken a big step in their relationship.

Mike then sat down with Hannah and shared how his ex-girlfriend got pregnant and he had an engagement set but she had miscarried the baby during her second trimester.

Mike said it was his fault because he wasn't there for her at the time and the childbirth date reminded him of that difficult time in his life. Mike said his faith had kept him strong and he had never cried more in his life when the incident occurred.

Just as Hannah and Mike were bonding over this emotional and deep conversation, Cam attempted to interrupt them a total of three times. Hannah seemed annoyed and asked Cam to leave the room, and Mike was also clearly upset.

Cam then finally got his time with Hannah and shared how he had to resign from his job back at home to go on the show, but then Jonathan interjected to give Cam a taste of his own medicine, saying, "What goes around comes around."

Jonathan physically got in Cam and Hannah's way of talking, and Cam was definitely pissed off.

"There's a difference in being bold, charismatic and romantic vs. being a little physical, overpowering, insecure Chihuahua like he just was... Love is worth fighting for, but I'm not going to get physical in this situation. I had to be the bigger man and walk away," Cam told John Paul during the date.


Tyler C. then had a moment alone with Hannah and told her women run the world and she's "a badass woman," which was a huge turn-on for him. Tyler C. told her that he wanted to be her arm candy, supporting her in everything she chooses to do in life.

Tyler C. said he was "crushing hard" on Hannah and called her "captivating" and "unreal."

Hannah acknowledged she had many great conversations that night but she wanted to give the rose to Mike because he showed how to be bold in a new light, which clearly meant vulnerability.

The next day, Connor Saeli, a 24-year-old investment analyst from Dallas, TX, accompanied Hannah on a one-on-one date.

Connor expected to "sail away" with Hannah, but she was feeling ill and canceled their plans. Hannah was apparently nauseous and went to the hospital to get pumped with fluids after passing out, so she invited Connor to join her in her hotel suite instead.

Connor therefore brought Hannah flowers and soup to her room, and they relaxed in her bed when Hannah was comfortable and resting in her pajamas. The couple snuggled and kissed.

Connor opened up to Hannah on their short date, revealing his mother had a stroke when he was 13 years old during a skiing trip.

Connor said he learned how strong his parents' relationship was a result, and they've apparently been married for 37 years. Connor said he wanted a similar love, and Hannah really liked him.


Hannah asked Connor to leave so she could get some sleep, but he was just glad to spend at least a few moments alone with her.

But before Connor left, he wrote her a letter and decorated the hotel suite with little Post-It notes, sharing the things he loved most about her -- including her beautiful eyes and maturity. Hannah thought the gesture was "super sweet" and absolutely loved it.

Meanwhile, Luke Parker, a 24-year-old import/export manager from Gainesville, GA, told the cameras Connor was going to marry a great girl someday but it wasn't going to be Hannah. Luke assumed, in fact, Connor was already out of the picture.

Connor thought he was going to miss out on the night portion of his date, but a driver arrived and told the suitor to get dressed and look sharp. Connor was thrilled to see Hannah again.

When they reunited, Hannah gave Connor a rose immediately because he had made her feel so special that day. She then surprised him with a private concert by Danish pop and soul band Lukas Graham, who performed their hit, "Love Someone."

Connor said he was "falling in love" with Hannah and thought they were building a very strong connection.

"I caught the Hannah bug today," Connor joked. "I'm sick with Hannah fever."

Prior to her second group date of the week, Hannah suddenly explained to cameras Tyler G. "had to leave," which was upsetting because she had wanted to explore their relationship more.

Hannah offered up no explanation behind Tyler G.'s departure, other than saying she was ready to move forward, refocus and have a good time with the men remaining.


For the second group date, Hannah and a group of eight men participated in a photo shoot with "top models," who turned out to be adorable pets -- including dogs, a little pig and even a snake.

While the men were preparing to take photos, Hannah's pal Demi Burnett spied on the guys by watching cameras set up everywhere. A makeup artist was even in on it, as she was told to flirt heavily with the men to see if they'd crack.

Hannah just wanted to make sure the guys were on the show for the right reasons.

But everyone passed the test, especially Luke P., who was shown telling the makeup artist he thought Hannah was perfect for him.

Towards the end of the photo shoot, Peter Weber, a 27-year-old pilot from Westlake Village, CA, got to kiss Hannah, and the situation made Luke upset.

Luke P. therefore stole one guy's spotlight and went in for more pictures to show off his physical strength. He asked Hannah to stand on his back while he did pushups, and no one seemed impress -- not even Hannah.

When Hannah needed to leave the photo shoot to change her clothes, Luke chased after her and begged to talk more, but Hannah politely told him they'd talk later.

"He doesn't have to be beside me the whole time to know that we're good. We're good. I need him to slow his roll; he is not guaranteed this," Hannah said in a confessional.

"I have a lot of other relationships that are really great too, but I don't think he gets it."


That night at the afterparty, Hannah asked Luke to chat. They had a strong connection but she said there were red flags when it came to how he carried himself.

Hannah explained to the cameras it was annoying when he tried to "flaunt [their] connection" in front of the other guys. She thought he stole the show "in a negative way" and found his game really unattractive.

Luke insisted none of the men could be Hannah's future husband, but she didn't appreciate how Luke acted like he had the competition in the bag.

Hannah told Luke that she found his confidence "irritating," and while she was glad he focused on her all the time, she didn't think he respected the fact she had other relationships blossoming as well.

Hannah therefore advised Luke to correct his cocky and arrogant attitude and change his behavior.

Meanwhile, the guys talked about how there was a fine line between being bold/aggressive and desperate. Luke Stone, a 29-year-old political consultant from Washington, DC, thought Luke was "self-imploding" and "unstable."

Luke P. kept trying to talk to Hannah, but she said she was calling the shots and wanted to have conversations with everyone else first.

Luke vented to the guys about how he couldn't stand the process and had thoughts about leaving the competition that night. They in turn thought Luke P. was ill-equipped to handle this format and he should leave.

"I can't say I'm in love with her. If I did feel that way, then I would be ready to get down on a knee," Luke shared, threatening to quit if Hannah didn't reciprocate strong feelings for him.


Peter was then shown talking to Hannah about how his mother had been crowned Miss Illinois and his father was also a pilot. Peter felt so comfortable around Hannah, and he loved her sweet giggle and the twinkle in her eye.

"I'm so happy. This is awesome. That could be wife right there. It really could," Peter gushed after having a steamy makeout session with Peter.

Before giving out her rose, Hannah pulled Luke P. aside. Hannah told Luke she really liked him but needed to work harder and fix the situation and respect her other relationships more.

Luke said he was glad Hannah approached him and he knew what he needed to do, but she gave Peter the rose because their relationship was growing stronger by the day.

The following day, The Bachelorette host Chris Harrison met with the group of men and announced they were going to attend a tailgate rather than a cocktail party given Hannah is such a big Alabama football fan.

Seconds after Harrison left the room, Cam addressed the group and said he needed time with Hannah at the tailgate first to share a very serious story with her -- a story that may result in him being deprived a rose.

Cam even went as far as to say this news had basically ruined his last two relationships. The guys, however, didn't care and were just annoyed the bachelor was asking for respect when he hadn't really respected anyone else so far in their journey.

Once the tailgate commenced, Cam got his way and was able to tell Hannah he almost had to get his leg amputated -- a time in his life when he was really down.

Cam explained the day before his surgery was scheduled, his grandmother passed away. And then a surgery in November 2017 apparently forced him to re-home a puppy he loved.

Hannah responded well to the conversation, and Cam was so happy he could resume competing for her heart.


Mike, however, figured Cam was trying to get "a pity rose" that day, and he was prepared to call the bachelor out on his "bullish-t."

Mike then decided to do just that. He pulled Hannah aside and revealed Cam had allegedly announced earlier to the guys he was going to tell a sad story to get the pity rose and stay longer on the show.

Mike thought the story was "forced," and Hannah was upset the story was shared to receive a rose rather than deepen their connection.

Hannah seemed to agree the timing of Cam's sad story was beneficial for him. She therefore called Cam's move "manipulative" and found the situation "disheartening."

Hannah pointed out in a confessional, "I do not give pity roses."

As a result, Hannah asked to speak with Cam, and she asked him if his story was a last-ditch effort to stay on the show. Mike told Hannah that Cam had written goodbye letters to guys in the house, so Hannah took that as a sign Cam definitely thought he was leaving and had to find a way to stick around.

"This just feels really schemey and slimy to me, and really really calculated," Hannah admitted to Cam.

Cam was devastated over the allegation and told Hannah their conversation was authentic and naturally-timed. Cam, however, knew he was in trouble going into the next Rose Ceremony.

Cam didn't think Hannah trusted her, and she asked to mull it over and think about it more.

At the Rose Ceremony, Hannah handed out roses in the following order: Jed; Tyler C.; Dustin Kendrick, a 30-year-old real estate broker from Chicago, IL; Dylan Barbour, a 24-year-old tech entrepreneur from San Diego, CA; Grant Eckel, a 30-year-old who is unemployed from San Clemente, CA; Luke P.; Garrett Powell, a 27-year-old golf pro from Birmingham, AL; John Paul; Matteo; Devin Harris, a 27-year-old talent manager from Sherman Oaks, CA; Luke S.; and Kevin Fortenberry, a 27-year-old behavioral health specialist from Manteno, IL.
