There's more than catty comments flying on The Bachelor NZ tonight, there are paintballs too.

In the fight for this season's love interest Bachelor Jordan Mauger, they will take no prisoners.

After Monday's tense rose ceremony, it was time for the remaining beauties to take out their frustrations in the ultimate physical showdown.

Tricky tactics have played large part in the show so far and the girls weren't about to hold back on the battle field.


It was serious from the get go with host Mike Puru pre-empting the drama.

"Tonight, it's all out war," he said in a voiceover to start the show.

Naz was quick to deliver a jab, before they even suited up for the main event, claiming: "the next target, there's a few of them."

American doctor Lindsey turned out to be the most accurate and aggressive sniper, taking out both Naz and Claudia, with what Mauger described as "a few more shots than necessary".

Little did the girls know they'd get a free for all shot at the Bach too - on one condition: "avoid the nuts".

Though one came awfully close, landing a shot on his inner thigh.

Mauger later stood on Lindsey's foot, claiming, "I did that on purpose" to get her back for some of the paintball welts she had inflicted.

Erin was picked from the crowd for some one on one time and a trip to the monkey enclosure, complete with puns.

"That's enough monkeying around," Mauger said to end the session.

Despite a solo date with Shari and some quality time with Erin, there were no roses handed out prior to the cocktail party and rose ceremony.
