Anyway, Ryan's trophy wife will be loyal, logical, an encourager. Faithful. Somebody that's a nurturer. Confident, magnetic, loves to laugh, someone that's a servant (by which he means someone who puts her family before herself), Unselfish, beautiful, sexy personality, and someone who loves to catch his eye. I think that's more than twelve, actually, but once you get beyond numbers Ryan can count on his fingers, there's bound to be some mistakes.
Emily looks increasingly uncomfortable as the list goes on, and confesses that sometimes when she's around him she feels all this pressure to be perfect. At some point Ryan figures out that she doesn't think it's a good thing like he clearly does, but all he can say is, "That's a very fair statement. Thank you for bringing that up." Well, maybe the upside of having children with Ryan means that you wouldn't need to bother saving any money for their college tuition.
Emily picks the rose up and talks about how funny he is, and good-looking (Ryan nods), and god knows he's a good kisser. "But your list of things that you look for, in a future wife, to be honest, on the top of my list would be a loving family, and not a perfect one," she says. Ryan starts to see where this is going, but Emily talks about how she thinks they want different things (but come on, is she really trying to tell us that if she were to list the qualities of her future husband, "loving family" would be the first thing? What does it even mean?).
Anyway, she's not giving him the rose, and there was much rejoicing. "That is very shocking," says Ryan, eventually, after the signals have gotten all the way into his brain. He says he didn't see it coming, because of the time they spent together, and their potential. Give him credit, I can't recall ever seeing a rejected candidate continue to sell himself for so long after he has been rejected, even if it's just completely incomprehensible statements like he thinks Emily is rejecting him because he's perfect for her.
Just as you're cheering Emily for giving the douchebag his walking papers, her spine disappears and she admits that she's not sure she is making the right decision, so he asks her why not give him a chance to show her what kind of man he is? We go to commercial with his elimination in doubt...
...and when we come back, we listen to the other guys discuss whether they think Ryan's coming back. "Do I want Ryan to come home? Let me think about that, NO," says "Jef" in a talking-head. Some of the guys think he's coming home because he's a good salesman. Arie's confident that she'll see through the guy, but if she doesn't, then there's some things he's going to have bring to her attention.
