Paul and David walk out onto the porch, which I guess is serving as the ballroom. David voice-overs (or rather reads from the paper the producers handed him) and says that he's nervous about the ball, but more nervous about how the girls will react when they find out about the elimination. Paul walks back into the house to fetch the ladies. David checks his breath and shoots his cuffs.
The Ball Begins. A classical trio plays as David waits. David voice-overs that when he was standing there with the candles and music, it hit him that everything he's done so far has been leading up to this moment. That is so sad. He also hopes that he can pull it off. That last sentence was so obviously written for him, and he delivered it in such a stilted manner.
Paul enters the room with Olinda on his arm. Olinda's dress is actually not bad. It's a beige number with rolled fabric straps and a handkerchief hem. She's got on way too much lip gloss, but it's Olinda, so that's to be expected. She's also got one of those bony chests that freak me out. I don't need to see anyone's sternum, thank you very much. She introduces herself to David, and he calls her "Wallenda." Hee! David asks what she does, and she explains that she's a fashion designer. David compliments her dress. Olinda confesses that she's nervous, and David says that he is too. David voice-overs that he thought it was cute and kind of attractive that she was nervous. He offers her some champagne, and she accepts a little too enthusiastically. Olinda voice-overs that David was a gentleman and really cute.
