You know how there is a certain breed of Thai restaurants that are really modern with white lacquered bars, leather banquettes, tasteful palms, and neon uplighting? Well, the producers have managed to find one of those restaurants actually IN THAILAND! Ashley takes the men there after their long day of labor. Ashley has apparently given up getting dressed in the always-inclement weather and is wearing a bikini paired with a poncho made out of fishing net (I'm guessing) and stilettos. Very appropriate ...for nothing, ever! Also, her hair is not weathering the weather very well, but instead of sensibly pulling it into a ponytail or a bun, she is leaving it down and is trying to single-handedly bring bedraggled back. Ben F. thinks Ashley has been paying him special attention today, and sure enough she pulls him aside to tell him that he really impressed her by taking the initiative to paint a mural for the kids. Then Ashley brings up Bentley and tells her that he is confident that she will get over it. Then he kisses her. See? See? It's weird that Constantine didn't get his lip lock on.
Out in the bar, the men are all dissing Ryan, because they have nothing else to do. One of them makes the usual statement, "If she thinks he has the whole package, well, I..." the men don't let him finish, because NO WAY. Inside, Ashley is getting cozy with Ryan. He has his hand on her thigh and she claims that they have IT. It's too early for Chlamydia, so maybe she means chemistry? Outside, the men continue to curse his presence and claim that if he gets the rose again on the group date they will all just stamp their feet, pout, and leave. Then Ashley pulls J.P. out for a pina colada and a walk in the rain and some "I like you," "Really? Say it again." "I like you!" talk. Then they make out on the ground as chastely as possible for two people to make out on the ground. Then J.P. carries her back to the bar, just to piss off all the other men. Cut to Ames getting his date card and trying to muster enthusiasm for whatever may lay ahead. Ashley is about to hand out the rose, when Ryan jumps up and begs to have one more minute with her. Which is admittedly kind of annoying. The men grouse as Ryan hauls her out for a reminder of how awesome he is. They head back inside and, despite having made out with J.P. quite heartily, she gives the rose to Ben F. because OH MY GOD HE COMES WITH FREE WINE. The men look relieved that she didn't give the rose to their fabricated frenemy Ryan, but then just look pissed that Ben F. got it and Ashley declared that she was getting "strong feelings" for him. And to think, just last week she had "strong feelings" for Bentley!
