Out on the water, Ashley and Ames admire the lush surroundings and each other. Then they slip into a kayak and into a cave and into a... canyon? Hole? I don't know what you call it. They are in a lake inside a canyon and it is stunning. So beautiful in fact, that Ames is so overwhelmed by beauty that he can't continue to flirt with Ashley. They park their boat and eat a mangosteen and talk about first dates. As they step back into the kayak, Ashley opines that she could have missed this world traveling money bags if she had married herself off to the trampoline arena king of Las Vegas. Later, Ashley reminds us that she had Bentley tunnel vision (which is pretty much bullshit if you watch the tapes) and almost missed some great guys.
Ames and Ashley sit at dinner and Ashley exclaims that they are twinsies and it must mean something. They look nothing alike. I have no idea what she's talking about. But Ames just smiles and nods and they start comparing their nerdiness. Then Ashley claims that she wants her children to travel the world, which is totally just because hanging out with Ames, who has visited 70 countries, has made her realize it is possible. Ashley goes on and on about how much they have in common, and how much alike they are, and how great he is. They ask each other far more interesting questions than whatever the hell that ball of yarn she and Constantine were batting back and forth. The one question she doesn't ask is: Are Ames' teeth veneers? Or, does he not have back teeth? Why can we only see the very, very bright white front ones? As a dental student, Ashley probably knows the answers to these questions, but AMERICA DESERVES TO KNOW. Then Ashley gives Ames the rose, but they don't kiss. Ames swears that they did something more intimate than kissing, He watched her poop?! Oh, they talked about Serious Things. Whatever.
Later, Ashley decides to host a cocktail party as opposed to last week where she just chucked off Jeff, his mask, and some guy who is probably back at his day job and winking at girls on eHarmony already. But instead of just relaxing and enjoying her drunken carousing with twelve eligible men, she decides to take the cocktail party and turn it into a witch hunt for "The Next Bentley." The most likely guy to bail? West, the guy with the dead wife. She's not sure if he is ready to date or if she could ever live up to the memory of his dead wife, which actually are quite reasonable concerns. Well done, Ashley! A real concern! For once! West does his best to try and convince Ashley that he doesn't have a shrine to the dearly departed in his home, but she looks doubtful. Also, according to trusted (and apparently ONLY) news source US Weekly, West's wife was found with alcohol and marijuana in her bloodstream and had apparently attempted suicide a few times. Also, her family tried to implicate West in her death, but he was exonerated. See? US Weekly is almost worth paying for. I don't. I steal my neighbor's, but she considers it worth paying for. Ashley looks skeptical, but she's probably not going to kick him off until some customs officer unearths his wife's ashes in his carry on bag.
