— -- There are two women remaining on "The Bachelor" following Monday night's episode -- and Ben Higgins is in love with both of them.


The lucky ladies are JoJo and Lauren B., who advanced to the season finale airing in two weeks. The odd woman out was Caila, who was sent home.

The trio had joined Ben in Jamaica. His adventures there began with Caila, who couldn't shake off the fact that two other bachelorettes were also on the island nation. She was distracted as she and Ben went on a rafting trip on a jungle river.

They discussed it over dinner on the beach. Caila expressed her concerns to Ben before telling him, "I'm in love with you." The two kissed, and then Ben extended an invitation to the fantasy suite. Caila readily accepted.

Ben's date with Lauren B. was more educational -- they took part in a preservation mission of baby turtles. Afterward, they chatted about their future on the beach, with Ben suggesting she's too good for him. Lauren admitted that she too wondered whether "this is too good to be true."

Seemingly relieved, they celebrated the honest exchange by heading into the water and making out.

Later, Lauren struggled to tell Ben how she felt about him. After she was asked to the fantasy suite, she confessed he's the man of her dreams. "I've known I've been in love with you for a while as well," Ben replied.

For his final date in Jamaica, Ben took a big leap with JoJo -- literally -- by jumping with her into a waterfall in the jungle. She told him that she had been too scared to say "I love you," and then finally said it. Ben said "I love you" in return.

If you're keeping score at home, that's two women to whom Ben said, "I love you."

Ben mentioned to JoJo his tense conversation with her brothers during the hometown visit last week. She said her brothers didn't want to see her come home from the competition heartbroken. Ben seemed satisfied with the explanation, and gave her the invitation to the fantasy suite. JoJo said yes.

As Ben relaxed at his bachelor pad following the dates, Caila decided to drop in. Unfortunately for her, it didn't work out too well. Ben used the opportunity to break up with her. He said, "It's really hard to imagine saying goodbye to you." Caila shot back, "That sounds like a line."

Before she left, Caila wanted to know how far in advance he knew he'd eliminate her. Ben insisted he didn't know what would happen before the Jamaica trip.

After saying goodbye to Ben and hopping into the car, Caila cried. "I didn't see this coming....I still love him," she said.

At the rose ceremony, Ben broke the news to Lauren B. and JoJo that Caila had gone home. Both women received roses.

We'll find out which one Ben chooses in two weeks. Next Monday night ABC airs the "Women Tell All" special.
