They leave and fly over the trees and then over L.A. They hold hands. DeAnna proclaims it romantic, which I hope means neither of them got airsick and chundered. Although if I ever go up a helicopter and barf, I will do everything in my power to make sure I do it out the window. "I think there's a ton of chemistry and physical attraction," says Jason. No one's denying DeAnna's hot, Jason. I'm just starting to wonder how well any of these guys can possibly know her, since one has said the words "self-centered" yet. Still, he's thrilled about the helicopter ride. "It's the best surprise I ever got," says Jason, who, remember, has a son.
They fly to an observatory. "I really don't have anything that I don't like about Jason yet. I guess tonight will tell," says DeAnna. Wow, isn't it amazing that she says something so apropos, when Jason has a big secret to tell her? I guess the producers wisely opted not to have her say, "One of the things I like about Jason is how he's totally told me about all the members of his family already."
Back at the outhouse, the guys discuss Jason's bombshell. Sean and his mullet say he's had several girlfriends with kids, and it's not a big deal. Twilley figures it might not be a main factor, but could be a tiebreaker-type thing. Like if she likes two guys equally, doesn't she go for the guy without a kid?
Back at the observatory, Jason and DeAnna head inside for a fireside dinner in the observatory's library. She asks what he likes to eat, and he says the big, fat cheeseburgers his mom makes. "You miss your family?' she asks him. "Um, it's funny you ask that," he says, gallantly not drawing attention to the cue card off-screen that says ASK HIM ABOUT HIS FAMILY. He says there's one thing she doesn't know about him. "The most important thing in my world is my three-year-old son," he says. "Oh, wow," says DeAnna brightly. You know, not that "whaaaaa?" face that the promos kept pretending was her reaction. She encourages him to talk about Ty, and Jason relaxes, and then eventually pulls out some pictures for her to coo over. In fact, DeAnna seems more surprised to learn that Jason was married before, but doesn't think that's a big deal either. "We're all here because things happened," she says, which is totally an oblique reference to Brad.
DeAnna then talks about her mom dying of cancer, and watching her die. It's more genuine than anything on this show ever, and makes all the rest of it seem even more like bullshit, so I'm not going to make fun of it. "She may be passed away, but she's still a big part of my life," she says, adding that she's never dated a guy who's cared to know anything about her mother. So you date arseholes, is what you're saying.
