Then Ricki comes up and sings "The Rainbow Connection" with Kermit and her mother, and it turns out they raised twenty grand for the hospital. If the hospital thinks this was all worth it, I won't disagree.
I guess this is where Emily gives one of the thirteen -- thirteen! -- guys on the "group date" a rose. Emily tells Jeffff that she wonders why he didn't come talk to her, while she thinks Chris is sooooooooo good-looking. Ryan then brings in another date card, and it's for Joe, the "Field Energy Advisor." Sean, the insurance agent who, I have to say, is far better-looking than Chris, is bummed that he didn't get a date. Party MC Stevie then tries to put some gross dance moves on Emily, which Charlie sees and rightly goes to gather the other guys to check out. Instead of doing the smart thing and just watching amusedly while this cheeseball makes a fool of himself, though, Kalon decides he's going to go cut in, and he's just gross. Then Aaron gets in on the game and it's all stupid, and then Kalon and Stevie are fighting, and if you're not a sports person this is a good example of what it means not to have a rooting interest. Anyway, Emily returns and gives the date rose to...she does drag this out a bit more...but it goes to Jefffff. Chris snits that he doesn't get it, which is an unfortunate but appropriate lead-in to the show giving us information on how to apply to be on The Bachelor.
Emily says she's nervous because Joe looks like Matthew McConaughey, which aside from the hair is patently untrue, and then Joe tells us he has no idea where they're going but it doesn't matter, and how do the contestants unfailingly come up with such original material? He says he won't know what he did wrong if he gets cut after spending "X amount of hours with her," and look, I didn't make him use "amount" when he meant "number," but if he's looking for a reason why he gets sent home I'd start there. Joe gets brought to the airport, which will be convenient if the date doesn't go so well, and Emily informs him that they're going to her home state of West Virginia. If Joe sings "Country Roads" in response, it doesn't make the final edit.
