"Thad" goes first. Shot of Sissie clapping; someone -- presumably Rebekah -- goes, "Woo!" Thad completely misses the target, like THANKS FOR COMING OUT, Thad. Dorky Earmuffs manages to catch the edge of the target, earning cheers and applause and a "good shot" from Rebekah. Jack's next. Rebekah watches intently. Jack thwacks the axe handle off the centre of the target, so Dorky Earmuffs is still leading. Cecile explains to Andrea, "He hit the middle, just with the wrong end." For some reason, that cracked me up. Troy steps up and launches the axe, which sticks in the centre ring, beating Dorky Earmuffs. I'm sure the women were all relieved. Santagati tells Troy to pick out his date. Cut to an interview with Rebekah in which she explains that she was thinking, "Pick me! Pick me!" Just when you think Rebekah couldn't get any more annoying, she goes and ratchets her voice up a couple of octaves.
Back to the selection. Troy stands in front of the couples and says, "Let's see -- which of these guys is with my woman?" like, it is no wonder this guy has no luck with women. Kurt makes a "whatever" face, but you can also hear Rebekah pretend to find that line incredibly amusing, and Troy goes right to her and says, "How'd you like to go on a date, darlin'?" and she says, "All right," yeah, big surprise. Her dowry's up to $7,000. She elaborates on her "all right" comment by explaining, "When he picked me, I was like, 'Party! All right!'" Ohhhhh, that's what she meant. Shot of Jim scowling as Rebekah explains that Jim wasn't happy, but he "knew that would happen."
Interview with Andrea, still with that fake "that's our Rebekah!" tone of voice, saying that all the women knew Rebekah would be "the chosen one," since "she was kinda workin' it."
The remaining non-Rebekahs are instructed to pick a man with whom they'd like to go on a date from among the remaining challengers. Karen picks Matt; Sissie picks Jack; and both Cecile and Andrea pick Thad, who starts giggling again, because he gets to pick. "Who do you want?" asks Santagati. To the surprise of everyone, Thad picks Andrea. In an interview, Thad says that he picked Andrea because she seemed to have "that kind of attitude," something he might like. Also, Thad is bald. Like Charlie Brown bald. Santagati sends the four new couples off on their dates, while the original Men on Ice have to sit and wonder whether they'll get the boot. Then Santagati explains to Cecile that while the other couples are on their dates, she's to stay in her cabin and have no contact with the other five men. Cecile tries not to look too bummed about being banished to her cabin, but you know she's trying to remember if she brought her favourite Harry Connick Jr. CD and enough batteries to last the night.
