Ben and Maya go scuba-diving. Wow -- that's fun, but kind of complicated for a date. Maybe Mike Fleiss is hoping they'll get all kinky with the latex gear and things will get sexier. Nope, they just like each other like normal people.
Ssshhheeeeeeeewwwwww! Back to the house. Summer and Tim lounge around on the patio and talk, and Tim says in voice-over: "To have Summer here just eclipses my feelings for all the other girls." He says he decided to write her a letter, "because I've really enjoyed being around her, and I just thought I had an opportunity to resolve something."

They stop for a picnic and Dave complains that the rock "is close to the most uncomfortable ground that I've ever sat on." Holly asks him what was the most uncomfortable. "I don't know, but I think I'd rather be on street pavement!" says Dave. This seems to completely crack Holly's shit up.
JS: Oh, bless her heart, she thinks that's funny.
KK: What does she do again? She's a lawyer?
Wendola: She's a corporate attorney, I think.
JS: Well there you go, then.
