In season 15 episode 2 of the ABC dating reality show 'The Bachelor,' Brad Womack whisks away Ashley H., his stunning date for the evening, to a deserted dirt road leading to a mysterious dark wooded area. A large electrical switch appears out of nowhere and, once the couple flip it on, a magical private carnival lights up. They excitedly run through the maze of games and rides like two kids. The date takes a more intimate turn when Ashley H. tells Brad about her estranged relationship with her father. Encouraged by her openness, Brad shares his own painful story of his absentee father. Their connection is palpable.

One last ride on the Ferris wheel turns into a passionate first kiss of the season, on 'The Bachelor' season 15 episode 2, which airs on Jan. 10, 2011 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. (Pictured: Brad Womack and contestant Ashley H. on season 15 episode 2 of 'The Bachelor.')
