Zora spins out a scenario where Evan might be trying to decide between Heidi and Blandy, because he was equally intrigued by both of them, and choose Heidi. Zora asks what happens if Evan does like Heidi. In an interview, Blandy says that she had opportunities to go on dates before coming to France and turned them down. Someone points out that Evan was really kind to Heidi on her date, and might like her. Brandy asks if Heidi should tell Evan, and Katie thinks she should. This whole conversation is so edited that I can't tell who said what, because they will show one person sitting still while another person is speaking. That makes me think that they edited in a lot of the voice-overs afterwards, and that they're being taken out of context.
Heidi tells a group of women that she doesn't feel bad. Blandy says she was confused and shocked. Heidi says, "Whatever. If I leave with two or three more enemies, then pffft." In an interview, Paul says that the women were doing it to eliminate the competition. Alison mentions that it's possible that one of the women eliminated in the last round could have been "single, genuine, honest...and [Heidi] is here instead." Heidi says she doesn't feel bad about it, because Evan is a great guy and she likes him. She concludes, "If anyone has anything to say about it, tell me." Isn't that what everyone has been doing for the past, like, three hours? The women are all silent, so Heidi asks if they are all okay because there are some quiet faces. None of the women speaks. I feel like I should have some strong opinion on this issue, especially considering how much I hate Heidi, but it's difficult to get angry with her for being dishonest when the whole show is based on a lie. Like, "Oh, I can't believe Heidi misled Evan about her availability when he's been so honest with her all along!" Not. It's not like she's married, or killed off her competition or something. In conclusion, whatever.
Morning. The women wake up and get ready. Heidi asks if anyone has a cure for bags under your eyes. In an interview, Brandy says that everyone was anxious because Evan was cutting seven women. In an interview, Evan says that he made his decision based on which girls he thought were genuine, and then met with Paul and explained it, and Paul approved. In an interview, Paul says that Evan did a good job choosing the final five. Paul had decided on three but didn't mention them, and Evan had chosen them already. I wonder which three?
Melissa tells Alison, Blandy, and Sarah that she's getting everyone's predictions on who will stay. Blandy says she doesn't have a clue. Sarah asks for the 411. Whatever, Mary J. Blige. Melissa says her choices are Brandy, Dana, and Sarah. That's only three. In an interview, Melissa says she was a gossip queen and asked every woman for her picks. In another room, Brandy, Katie, Dayana, and Melissa discuss the picks. Brandy is worried, and Katie thinks that Brandy is definitely in. Brandy says it's like torture. In an interview, Brandy says that Evan is great-looking, and funny, and down-to-earth. She wants to stay because she liked the pearls. She's a little simple in the head, isn't she? Brandy thinks it'll be Melissa. In an interview, Melissa says that she doesn't know how Evan feels about her because he was teasing her. Didn't she go through junior high? That means the boy likes you, duh. Dayana thinks Evan will pick Dana, and Brandy says that's a given. Melissa isn't sure about that. Katie says Melissa is crazy, because Evan loves Dana.
