Rebekah's turn. We run down Rebekah's time in Alaska, as Santagati explains that many of the bachelors were "enamoured by" her, even though that should be "enamoured of" her. We get quick clips of each of her rejectees saying "Rebekah" at Proposal Point and Santagati explains that while she was "touched" by each man's feelings (as if), only Jason truly won her heart. "As time passed, your attraction grew into something more," says Santagati. Jason and Rebekah cuddle. "You brought Cecile's ex Tim as your second Man on Ice, yet it was Jason who you felt was marriage material." Hey, thanks for not explaining why she chose Old Tim. Thanks for bringing up the whole incredibly pointless second-Man-on-Ice thing again. Also, a week and a half of wasting time and a little "screwing around" makes Tim Cecile's "ex"? Rebekah's pop-up graphic tells us she was picked first for dates twice and received seven pleas. Her dowry's $23,000.
Santagati delivers his warning that if Jason doesn't arrive on the plane, she's "free to go home...alone." He strolls off, leaving Rebekah there to wait. She plays with her flowers and watches the clouds go by. This nonsense is about as dramatic as watching grass grow. There goes the plane on its first fly-past. Rebekah squints at it. It circles around and lands, pulling up to the shore, while Rebekah looks determined to ignore it. The pilot gets out, and Rebekah starts grinning like an idiot -- at least until we're shown the same empty interior shot that Karen got. Rebekah's smile fades. Santagati strolls back up. "I'm sorry, Rebekah, but there's no one on that plane. So you're free to go." She stomps on over to the plane, looking very unimpressed.
Comedic high point comes with Jason's video farewell, where he praises Rebekah's "grace, intelligence, depth, and style" and other such hoo-hah. "I just hope everyone can see that the princess's beauty" -- and he actually makes air quotes when he says "princess" -- "is much greater on the inside than the outside." Yeah, we really got that. He thanks her for sharing her time with him, and adds, "Don't get into too many snowball fights in California. Bye." Goodbye, Rebekah. Don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.
Commercials. Reign of Fire. Wasn't Matthew McConaughey going to be a big movie star once upon a time? And would someone please SHOOT CARROT TOP ALREADY?
Cecile arrives. For some reason, Santagati forgets to use his "your Alaskan adventure ends here" line. We are forced to relive the Saga of the Tims, wherein Old Tim felt pressure and "decided to back away." Santagati fudges a little when he says, "But before he could tell you in private, he was forced to spill his guts in front of the group," when he really had lots of opportunity to tell her "in private," as far as privacy means anything on this show, but I'd rather not get into all that again. Tim admits he lied. Cecile scurries off to the bathroom to swear a whole lot, but thank god we're spared the singular pain of listening to her blubbering away a little later on with the door closed. She dumps Old Tim for New Tim, which is an even bigger disaster (and one in which Cecile again deserves some, if not most, of the blame), and she switches to Will. She was picked first for dates twice, had three pleas, and her dowry sits at $16,000, the second-highest. Santagati wishes her luck, and then we play the waiting game again.
