Bachelorette tonight LIVE – Peter Izzo stirs up drama with Will as Glen Powell & Jay Ellis host Top Gun: Maverick date

THE Bachelorette's Peter Izzo stirred up a feud with his rival, Will, on tonight's drama-filled episode.

Also on Tuesday's Bachelorette episode, Michelle took the men on a Top Gun themed date hosted by the stars of the upcoming sequel, Glen Powell & Jay Ellis.

This week's show comes after Jamie Skaar broke down and revealed his mom was suicidal as fans took to Twitter to praise Joe Coleman's basketball skills.

As Jamie opened up about his life challenges to Michelle, he said: "When I was 24 my mom committed suicide."

Both appeared teary-eyed, as Michelle responded: "I don’t know you that well but I’m so proud of what you’ve come through and how you conduct yourself."

    THE NAKED TRUTH

    To conclude their date, Michelle pulled a final card in the lobby of their hotel.

    "We dare one of you to strip down to nothing while the other yells with the megaphone 'this is our journey,'" she read.

    As Michelle screamed in the megaphone, Rodney ran around butt naked, only covering his private parts with a pillow, as the other men watched in amusement.

    Hosts Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe also came out of their hotel rooms to enjoy the show.

    RODNEY'S TURN

    Fan-favorite Rodney joined Michelle for his first one-on-one date where they would be playing Truth Or Dare.

    "I've been anxious because I've never been the tallest in the room or the most handsome.

    "But I'll always give it my all with my heart," he said before the date.

    The pair continued to feed each other food objects blindfolded in the kitchen of their Palm Desert resort.

    GROUP ROSE

    Following all of the drama from the night, Michelle – who was unaware of the drama between Peter and Will – handed out her group date rose to Martin.

    "Martin, you listened and pulled me aside during our group date which meant a lot. Will you accept this rose," she said, giving her flower to the bleached-hair contestant.

    She then dismissed the group and went on a one-on-one dance date with Martin.

    SHADY BEHAVIOR

    Peter and Will got into a huge fight on tonight's episode over their feelings for Michelle.

    The drama took a wild turn when Peter took Will's jacket he was given from the group date and threw it in the swimming pool.

    "It needed a little wash," Peter said, attempting to defend his behavior to the other men.

    However, Will was upset and broke down in tears, walking away from the situation.

    LOCKING LIPS

    Michelle gushed that the men are "doing the work" to win back her trust after their Top Gun-themed group date.

    The schoolteacher kissed several men afterwards, including early frontrunners Nayte and Joe.

    "I feel so lucky to have such a great group of grownup men," she said in a confessional with a huge smile.

    FEELING 'WOOZY'

    The fellas were asked to go on a military-grade flight simulator which required them to toss and turn upside down and all around.

    In a classic Bachelorette twist, the men had to be twisted in the simulator while professing their feelings for Michelle.

    Willie was the most nauseous-appearing contestant to take part in the activity but recovered by gushing about his lady in Spanish.

    "Do you think a vomit bucket?" Michelle asked while he responded swiftly: "I need you."
