Lisa is once again left alone. No one picked her. In an interview, Lisa tells us that it doesn't feel good to be left alone, but that she has a different perspective on it now. Really. No, she really does. She's totally fine. Don't worry about her. Jeannette and Michael are a couple. Lisa says that she and Michael decided that they need to play the game and get to know other people (read: he ran away from her neediness). Lisa says that it still hurts, though. Why is Lisa on this show? Seriously, why would she go on the show? I don't understand what would motivate her to set herself up for rejection like this, since she obviously has a hard time with it. Since Toni dissed Tony, he's stuck with Lisa. Each of the singles is now part of a couple, so Justin announces that they will be having a black-tie dinner that night, and that they are on free time until then. The sails are raised, and I'm still not sure why they keep showing that, unless it's a sexual metaphor or something. Maybe it's shorthand for "It's on!"
Melissa, a twenty-five-year-old respiratory therapist, tells us that she's really happy to be partnered with Darin. In fact, Melissa was honest with him and told him that she has a boyfriend. Wait. What? She has a boyfriend? Is that even allowed? I was told that these were all singles. That seems like cheating, in more ways than one. And why would she go on this show? And why would her boyfriend still be her boyfriend if she went on the show? Can you imagine the conversation? "Oh, honey -- I'm going on a game show where I'll be sleeping with different men every two days, in order to win some money. You don't mind, do you?" "Hell, no!" Apparently, Melissa is going into this with an open mind, which makes everything okay.
Anthony, Ralph, and Greg discuss strategy. Anthony gives a big speech about how high his standards are, and how he never thought he would meet someone on the ship who was up to his standards. Anthony is not only a tool, but creepy. Anthony says that he's impressed with how much Laura knows and how cultured she is, since she's only twenty-one. I'm so sure that Anthony and Laura had a discussion last night in their cabin about which city has the best symphony orchestra. Ralph jokes that he had no idea about anything when he was twenty-one and, in fact, that he has no idea now at thirty-two.
