THE BACHELORETTE - "Episode 804" - Emily treats eight men to a special day on the water at the Bermuda Yacht Club, where they learn proper sailing techniques. It's a breeze until they discover that they need to compete in races against one another. The stakes are ratcheted up as the winning team will be rewarded with more time with Emily while the losing team goes back to the hotel. It's an all out battle, but one team is left to celebrate with Emily on the dock while the other team sulks as they leave. The after party is full of surprises, as one handsome bachelor tries to impress the Bachelorette by referring to her as a possible "trophy wife," but it is actually another smooth-talking man who charms her and scores the rose, on "The Bachelorette," MONDAY, JUNE 4 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network. - (ABC/DONNA SVENNEVIK) JEF, EMILY MAYNARD
Monday TV in Utah: Local guy still fighting to win "The Bachelorette's" heart

We're down to 13 men remaining on The Bachelorette (7 p.m., ABC/Ch. 4), and Utahn Jeff Holm is among them.

We haven't really seen that much of Jef in the first few episodes, however. And he hasn't seen that much of bachelorette Emily, either. At least not alone.

Well, they do get some time together in this week's episode, which features:

• A trip to Bermuda.

• A two-on-one date with John and Nate which will end with one of them being sent home.

• A one-on-one date with Doug.

• Eight men (including Jef) competing in a sailboat race.

And here's ABC's description of how it will end:

"Anxiety hangs over the cocktail party like the stormy weather that is about to hit the area. One overconfident suitor begins to rub the guys the wrong way, while another bachelor confronts a man who had questioned his age and maturity. At the end of the evening, 10 men remain, and it will be up to Emily to determine if she is in love with any of them when they get to their next spectacular stop on the adventure - London."

Oh, the (sarcasm alert) excitement.
