For their evening date, they have dinner at the beach... with tiki torches even. She giggles when she sees him. She looks cute in a long tangerine colored dress. He toasts to the best dates he's ever had. Jill thinks they have serious chemistry, so she lets him off the hook easily. She talks about where they'd live. Then she says he has to be ready to propose at the end of this. He kind of says maybe, and she laughs at him. He says if she'd kicked him in the ass today, they could have gotten married on the helicopter. He tries to put his feelings into words, and he gets all shy and doesn't really answer it. Time to play the Fantasy Suite card. He says that he's scared... because he got denied once. Then he interviews that he needs that extra alone time to feel more confident in their relationship.
More candles, more cuddling on the bed. He again tells her that he's not good with words and expressing feelings. He's afraid of the L word, because he doesn't say it a lot. I think he still might think this is for real. He interviews that he might not make it to the end because he didn't lie and say that he loved her when he didn't. Clothes strewn on the floor and then they are in a bubble bath. She toasts to his attempt at opening up. More kissing, no cute little door closing. Just lots of candles and bubbles.
Now here's my question... how exactly does the next morning shake out. Does she kick him out of the suite so she can get ready for her date with the next guy? Does she sneak back to her room doing the walk of shame? Is there no breakfast date or morning after snuggling? Just curious.
The next day, it's time for Ed's date. It is on a boat. A really big boat. Maybe a yacht? Again, his hair doesn't look entirely terrible, so I can see why she might like him. Because with his hair product free, he kind of looks weird. The duo finds some canvas netting that they lay on that happens to be very bouncy, like a trampoline. After hopping around they settle down and chat. He says that he's been thinking about her every day... and not work. She whines again that she never got to meet his family and she can't imagine getting engaged without meeting his family. He says that his family calls him Richie. She latches on to that little nugget of info. Then they are diving into the water and swimming around/making out. He claims that he's caught up in her, but he's still doing that thing where he doesn't actually ever look directly at her. She interviews that she wants to be around him constantly. He says that he wants her to meet his family, so he flew them out there. He meaning the show producers. Clearly. She flips out, because it means he listens to her and really cares about her. Or knew that it would make more compelling television because the producers told him so. One of those things, I'm sure.
