The Most Dramatic Fantasy Suite Dates in Bachelor History
From breakups to dating to instant quitting, here are Bachelor Nation’s wildest Fantasy Sweet moments
There’s never a shortage of drama in The Bachelor and when it comes time for the fantasy suites there’s bound to be some shocking moments!
Over the course of the show’s 20-year run, the final weeks of the season have proven to be an emotional roller coaster. And when it comes to the sleepover, a relationship can make or break. There are ups, downs, lots of tears – and some very intimate moments.
Here’s what happened at the Fantasy Suites…
1. Zach Shallcross & Kaity Biggar
In the final season of The Bachelor, Zach Shallcross made the decision not to sleep with any of his last three wives during fantasy suite week. Unfortunately, his plan to keep things from getting messy backfired completely. The pair eventually went all the way during his night out with Gabi Elnicki — a decision Zach seemed genuinely guilty of. When it came time for his date with Kaity Biggar, he decided to make the situation transparent, which made Kaity feel extremely hurt and told Zach that she wished she hadn’t known.
“I am devastated. He said sorry, but why are you sorry? You’re not sorry you did it. Are you sorry I feel this way? I’m really not feeling well right now,” Kaity said in a confessional. She even later admitted she just wanted to go home.
Kaity and Zach were later able to reconcile, but it’s clear that this caused tension for both Kaity and Gabi.
2. Colton Underwood & Cassie Randolph
Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph’s fantasy suite date became one of the most memorable moments in Bachelor history. During their date, Cassie expressed her hesitancy about their relationship, revealing that she wasn’t sure she’d be ready to get engaged by the end of the season. After a difficult argument, Cassie finally decided to leave.
The decision didn’t sit well with Colton, who had told Cassie she would be his final choice. In an emotional state, Colton exited the show dramatically by ripping off his microphone pack and then hopping over a fence, much to the shock of then-host Chris Harrison.
3. Gaby Windy & Eric Schwer
During Gabby Windey’s season of The Bachelorette, she ended up having just one overnight date with one of her suitors. After Johnny DePhillipo decided to leave because he wasn’t ready to propose, Jason Alabaster expressed similar concerns during his dinner with Gabby. Though his confession angered Gabby, they decided they could have deeper conversations away from the cameras in the Fantasy Suite. Things didn’t go well there either and the pair didn’t make it through the night and eventually gave up.
Gabby ended up going to the Fantasy Suite with Erich Schwer, but even their date night didn’t go too well. During their sleepover, Erich told Gabby that he would feel “cheated” if she slept with other men. While Erich said his comment came from a place of uncertainty, it ended up causing a lot of drama. Feeling pressured by the ultimatum, Gabby considered how to move forward in the relationship, which later led to some very tense conversations. Ultimately, the couple was able to pull things off, but not without some dramatic moments.
4. Clayton Echard & Susie Evans
Clayton Echard’s final fantasy suite date of the season was with Susie Evans, and it definitely didn’t end well. During their date, Susie asked Clayton directly if he had slept with or declared his love for any of the other women, telling him it would be “impossible” to move towards an engagement if he had. Clayton was taken aback by Susie’s comments and was actually upset that she would expect him not to try the other women. In the end, he admitted he had confessed his love to the other women and slept with them – although he loved Susie “most of all”. Many viewers were horrified by Clayton’s decision to sleep with the other women as he admitted he considered Susie his first choice.
Susie eventually got up and walked away and when their conversation got back together, Clayton called Susie because she hadn’t told him in advance. Despite Susie’s constant apologies, she was angered by Clayton, who said he felt he didn’t even know her anymore. Before the night was over, Clayton sent Susie home.
5. Hannah Brown & Luke Parker
When Hannah Brown brought Luke Parker into the Fantasy Suite during her season of The Bachelorette, things were already not looking good. As the pair sat down for dinner, they ended up having a rather dramatic conversation. Luke told Hannah that he wanted to make sure she didn’t have sexual relations with the other men and if she did, he would want to go home. Hannah told him that he didn’t have the right to judge her and that he didn’t appreciate the way he spoke to her – especially since he wasn’t her husband yet. She also pointed out that she’d looked past many of his red flags and was offended that he couldn’t get past that situation.
When Hannah finally told him it was time to go home, Luke said she “owed” him a moment to get his side of things — but that only made her angrier. She escorted him to the limousine, and when Luke refused to get in, Hannah delivered one of the most epic lines in Bachelor’s history.
“I had sex and Jesus still loves me,” Hannah said, before adding in the confessional, “I didn’t just go to the Fantasy Suites. I was in a windmill… time.”
6. Rachel Lindsay & Peter Kraus
Rachel Lindsay and Peter Kraus had perhaps one of the most heartbreaking breakups of The Bachelorette’s 19 seasons. It all started during their fantasy suite date when Peter confessed that he told Rachel’s mother that he wasn’t ready to propose to her daughter.
Their conversation continued over dinner, where they realized they both had very different ideas about what it meant to be engaged. Although Rachel really wanted to be engaged, she didn’t think that had to mean that they would get married right away and they could get to know each other further after the show. Meanwhile, Peter felt he only wanted to be engaged once and equated it with marriage.
Although they decided to continue their date after their emotional discussion, it was the beginning of the end for the couple. Shortly after their night together, the couple decided they didn’t agree on their engagement and needed to end it.
7. Juan Pablo Galavis & Andy Dorfmann
Something went wrong during Juan Pablo Galavis’ fantasy suite date with Andi Dorfman. While Andi never revealed what exactly happened overnight, she says that when the cameras stopped rolling, she saw a side of Juan Pablo that she didn’t like. The next morning Andi called him and told him that she knew she wasn’t in love with him. During their conversation, she also noted that he often “went too far” with his honesty and she felt that he had no interest in really getting to know her. She even mentioned a joke he made about her being there “by default.” In response, Juan Pabo simply said, “It’s okay,” saying that he didn’t know what she wanted from him. Andi finally left.
8th. Ben Flajnik & Courtney Robertson
Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson had one of the wildest nights in Fantasy Suites history. Before they even got to the overnight date part of the show, Ben and Courtney had already met while skinny dipping. Then, when they had time together when the cameras weren’t rolling, the couple met several times — and Courtney had no problem telling anyone about it. In her book, Courtney shared that she couldn’t find condoms in the suite, but the couple still had sex three times.
“We immediately ripped each other’s clothes off and had intense, passionate sex on the couch in front of the fireplace. The producers left a cell phone for us in case of an emergency, but they didn’t leave us any condoms,” Courtney wrote.
Courtney later clarified that she was told there is usually a lot of protection in the Fantasy Suite and thinks she may have missed it.

9. Emily Maynard
Emily Maynard is the only Bachelorette to ever abstain from all three of her fantasy suite dates. When it came time for the overnight dates, Emily shared that she wanted to be a good role model for her little daughter and didn’t want any of the guys to stay with her. While their decision definitely wasn’t the norm for “bachelor” couples, Sean Lowe said that wasn’t quite the case. In his book, he revealed that Emily secretly invited him to come over after they wrapped filming so they could get to know each other without the cameras rolling.
“She said, ‘Listen, I’m only doing this with you.’ We’re going to look like we’re going to wrap up the date, but then we’re going to go to the fantasy suite and we can just hang out.” And that’s exactly what we did … We spent four hours with no cameras, so I’m like, ‘If they only does it to me, then she must want to choose me.’ Of course she sent me home that same week, and I found out she did it to the other guys too,” Sean shared in an interview with Dish Nation.
10 Jillian Harris & Ed Swiderski
Things didn’t go as expected for Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski during their fantasy suite date. Although the chemistry was shown throughout the season, it turned out that there were some bedroom issues during the sleepover. Eventually, after Jillian emotionally shared that the romance just wasn’t there, Ed admitted he had some performance issues once they finally had their alone time.
“I was very nervous and it just didn’t happen. I couldn’t show her that I’m really, really in love with her. Jill may have gotten the wrong impression,” Ed explained.
