Meanwhile, Wes is all, "later, dudes" and suggesting that they seal this up and don't talk about it anymore, and goes out of his way to congratulate Tanner on being a man. Jesse says this is awful, but he's not going to talk about that with Jillian. Jake says he and Wes are good buddies, so he's going to get to the bottom of it, because if Wes is here for his album, then he's not here for Jillian. And it's not fair for anyone there who actually wants to get married, especially Jillian.
So then they all go hottubbing, and instead of drowning, Jillian babbles about meeting people's families, and gives the rose to Kiptyn. Michael tells us that kicked his butt. Jake is likewise disappointed. Really? It's disappointing to not continue in the competition?
And the next day, Jake is still whining about the whole thing. "I think at this point I might not get a rose without opening up to her completely." So that means he has to go and pester Jillian in her room and have an inane conversation about how awesome this whole thing is. "I really like you, a lot," he says, laughing. "I'm not going to tell you that I'm in love with you, but it's, everything is just lining up." She tells him she's glad he talked to her, and she doesn't doubt how he feels. He tells us that he hopes Jillian saw how serious he is. Haven't we seen nothing but the rod-up-his-ass serious Jake?
And now the train is going through the Kicking Horse pass and heading on to Lake Louise, which is truly one of the most beautiful locations in Canada. Jillian says she had an instant chemistry with Reid but she wants to use the one-on-one date to figure out what "him and I" have in common. Here's hoping he's not a grammar stickler.
They're going skiing and possibly snowboarding, so Reid can experience one of Jillian's "happy places." Doesn't that date come later?
So then there's Reid falling on his ass time and time again, which means Jillian can make a lame joke about Reid falling head over heels for her many times, and then she praises him for being such a good sport, and it always amazes me when people are praised for exhibiting basic traits displayed by functioning adults. Like, "He didn't throw a temper-tantrum and storm off the hill! What an amazing guy!" And there's more like this, with Jillian pointing out Reid is a good skier so he could have just skied all day and made fun of her bad snowboarding: "But he never!" No, he never, Jillian. He never.
