10:30 AM. Group date. The temperature is 26°, so it's even warmer than it was in the last episode. The group date is dogsledding, with the women sitting on the sled and the men driving them. Long pointless clips of people laughing and generally enjoying themselves and I have dogsledded before so I do know what it's like (and no, I didn't take a dogsled to school, not like I haven't had to debunk that myth a million times after living in the Yukon). In an interview, Kristian blah blahs about how crazy it is that Andrea picked him out of all these guys and they're getting along so well. SHUT UP, Kristian, pretending this is some sort of fairy-tale romance, like there was a little hint of pixie dust in the air when Andrea signed up for this prostitution deal out of desperation. Andrea snoozes me out by going on about communication, as we watch her on the sled with her arms really awkwardly folded back, so Kristian can hold on to her elbows while he drives the sled, I guess. Then they wipe out. Heh. Now we watch Karen and Kurt. And unlike the other women who were waving and laughing, Karen is completely bundled into the sled, arms and all. Kurt says they have a lot in common and the age thing (she's thirty-six, he's twenty-nine) isn't an issue. I actually groaned when he brought up the age issue, because then Karen has to weigh in on the age issue. She explains she thought Kurt was younger when she met him (we know, Karen; it was apparently your primary reason for picking him), but it's okay because she's dated guys his age before. Am I crazy, or is she saying she normally dates guys younger than Kurt but she doesn't mind that he's as old as he is? Am I the only one really weirded out by Karen? I'm really curious now as to why her marriage broke up.
Apparently we need another interview wherein Rebekah calls Kurt a "hottie," like, we get it, Rebekah has designs on all the men, thank you.
Now the rest of the women engage in speculation about Karen's age, since she apparently wouldn't tell them. Then we get Rebekah explaining that a lot of women in their thirties are secretive about their ages. Then, for some reason, Rebekah feels compelled to tell us that she's not a woman in her thirties who's secretive about her age: "I'm not, 'cause I'm still like, 'Hey, I'm twenty-seven, I'm loving it.'" Let's let that sink in. Rebekah just said she's not secretive about being in her thirties because she's actually only twenty-seven. File this in the same category as when she felt it necessary to tell us how "real" she is. Kurt for some reason blah blahs that it's all about being attractive on the inside because you'll only be attractive on the outside for a certain length of time. If I were dating Karen, though, I'm sure I'd consider "measurable brainwave activity" to have some sort of importance as well.
