Last night on the Bachelor , Chelsie got a one-on-one date, which in Bachelor-land means she got to do something terrifying and out of her comfort zone. (Because vying with 27 other girls for one man's attention on national TV isn't scary enough.)

This specific date was bungee jumping off a bridge known as "Suicide Bridge." Chelsie, who was afraid of heights, understandably panicked and almost didn't go through with the jump, but eventually Juan Pablo "talked her off the ledge." Then Chelsie naturally compared jumping to her relationship with Juan Pablo saying, "That is the epitome of building a relationship, free-falling together. And we did that. Literally ... If we could jump off a bridge together, we could do pretty much anything.” Okay. If you say so.

The Bachelor/Bachelorette has a long tradition of comparing their daredevil activities to love using the most ridiculous metaphors, and three episodes in, it seems this season will be no different. In honor of Chelsie taking that leap of faith with Juan Pablo, here's a look at some of the best metaphors throughout the show's history.
