Luke and Heather finish their ride and Luke says he'd like to see Heather again. She interviews that this was a really fun date. They sit together on a bench and Heather says her "greatest gift" is her voice, which she enjoys using to sing. Yes, and I'm sure that singing comes in handy in the world of insurance sales. Luke asks if she ever dreamt of pursuing a music career, and Heather very realistically says that her voice is good and she enjoys singing, but doesn't think of herself as uniquely talented or anything. Luke says that Heather should dream of being a singer anyway and follow that dream. Heather says that her size has kept her from pursuing that dream. Yes, because no fat person has ever made it in the world of music. I mean, it probably doesn't make it easier, but if you're talented, confident, determined, and lucky enough, you can be a famous singer at any weight. Heather immediately cries in an interview about how nice it is to talk to someone who is fat. Heather tells Luke that she needs to know who she is before she can find the right man for her, and she's learned a lot about herself on this show so far. No, you haven't. Trust me, Heather. But you're 22 and you have time and you seem to have your head on straight, so you'll be fine. With someone else! Oh, and then they make out.
Time for the mixer! That makes me happy because it means this show is that much closer to being over. Luke arrives and greets Heather enthusiastically. Christina, who hasn't done anything all episode, says she feels a connection to Luke but doesn't know what his is with the other girls. Lauren talks to Luke alone. They agree they're both excited for tonight because as more girls go home, they get closer to the end. Lauren says she's confident she's staying tonight even though she hasn't done anything with Luke all episode and has the distinct disadvantage in this game of being thoroughly unpleasant to be around. Just like last week, Lauren talks about all the stuff she and Luke have in common. Luke says that Lauren is asserting herself as "my woman," which he thinks is a turn-on because he likes it when his ego is fed. With that, they toast to themselves, which is bad luck.
