The next night it's time for the second cocktail party, which greases the wheels for the Rose Ceremony. Frank, Ty and Jesse are sitting pretty with their roses neatly tucked into their lapels. Ali drags Chris L. (the Cape Cod landscaper with the dead mom) away for some quality time, and he manages to come across as a stand-up guy without too many issues. Well, enough issues to look for a wife on a reality show, but otherwise just peachy. Ali then talks to Roberto, who swept her off her feet last week, but didn't get invited on any dates this week. So when he gets her alone, he immediately tells her that he is a baseball player who was drafted by both the Rockies and the Twins. Obviously this makes any girl's ovaries jump for joy and start thinking of being an MLB wife and dreaming of starring in some future incarnation of the Real Housewives. Ali and Roberto play catch on the lawn, but he only gets to first base. Then Ali chats briefly with lockjawed Kasey who can't move his mouth so I won't mock him, but they only get a few moments together before Frank swoops in to reclaim his woman. He admits to Ali that he left the date feeling like she was HIS girlfriend and now he is going to have to pee in a territorial circle to ward off her other suitors. Instead of using urine, he makes out with her in full view of all the other guys, which is actually probably more effective.
