In an interview, Evan says that the third date was horseback riding. The luxury car pulls up to the stables. Evan says he's had to work for everything he has, which isn't much, so he wants to see if the women could do some hard labor. The women on this date are Zora, Alison, Dayana, and Heidi. Evan voice-overs that he was especially interested in Heidi because the producers told him to be. Oh, he actually says that it's because "she seems like a girl who's used to getting what she wants." In other words, she's a bitch. Evan asks whether any of the women has ever ridden horses before. Heidi says that she has twice, and that the horses bucked her both times. Even horses hate Heidi! In an interview, Alison says that being in the smaller group will allow Evan to see their individual personalities.
Evan leads the women over to the stables and says it's time for the fun part. Heidi does this weird walk on the way over like she just crapped her pants, and then she's standing there wearing a riding helmet even though no one else is. I guess she's just trying to be memorable. Evan announces that they're going to clean some stables. The women smile nervously. In an interview, Evan says that the women had to "clean up this horse crap" as a prerequisite to riding the horses. Some reward. Evan tells them to "put on a happy face and shovel some slop." Zora jumps around like a little kid. In an interview, Heidi says it's not like she "came all the way to France to shovel horse doo-doo." The women grab shovels and start digging. In an interview, Evan says that the stables smelled pretty bad, and that, by the end of a day working construction, he doesn't smell very good either. Okay, enough of Evan trying to draw any kind of parallel between these tasks and his life. That last one was a bit of a reach. Just come right out and say, "We wanted to put these women in degrading situations in the hopes that one of them would throw a fit or break down crying, because that's good television." ["I thought maybe the parallel was, 'I like to shit where I live, so any woman who wants to be with me needs to be trained to deal with that.'" -- Wing Chun]
Evan voice-overs that Zora seemed to be having a really great time. Zora shovels some hay and voice-overs that "it was what it was." Alison swears and then laughs after stepping on a piece of poop. Evan tells Heidi and Dayana that they are on deck. Wait, I think Evan was actually just helping out! He was dumping a wheelbarrow or something. In an interview, Evan says that he felt like Heidi and Dayana were wondering why they were there, because it was "about as romantic as an iodine enema." The fuck? Where did that come from? What a strange analogy. And yet teeming with meaning at the same time. In an interview, Dayana says that she's a princess, and that her mother and father both call her their little princess. Is that something to be proud of? I would be pissed if someone called me a little princess. Dayana says that she needs perfume, and Heidi asks her not to put any on. Hey, Heidi was doing work, too. Still haven't seen Dayana do a damn thing. Zora gets a little overzealous with the pitchfork and hits the wall. Alison says she's scared of Zora with the pitchfork. Evan actually has to go in and tell Zora that she can stop now.
