Lauren gets her alone time with Luke. In the meantime, the other girls mistake a tray of guacamole for a face mask. Malissa puts it on her cleavage. Are they drunk? They must be. They all decide to hang out in the hot tub and be really loud and obnoxious, so loud that Luke and Lauren can hear them out on the balcony. So they walk inside to join them, much to Lauren's displeasure. Luke jumps in the hot tub with the girls while Lauren fumes.
It's almost time for the mixer, and Lauren wants to know how confident the other girls are going into the elimination. Heather is very confident. Melissa is not so much. Then Luke arrives. He claims that he still doesn't know which two girls he's sending home tonight, and the mixer will help him decide for sure. Luke makes sure to spend alone time with Lauren first. She continues to think that he's all about her, but she's also feeling the strain of having to compete for him with other girls. Luke asks her if she's approached this show with more of a "competitive spirit" than anyone else. She says she's competing for his time and attention, but not his affection. Meanwhile, Melissa spies from the open window. Oh, please let Lauren see her. That would be so awesome. What is Lauren's boob tattoo of, by the way? I can't figure it out.
Luke goes for Mandy next, and she wants to dance right away. And also kiss. She says she wants Luke to be her boyfriend. Meanwhile, the other girls spy. Lauren guesses that Mandy and Luke's embrace is because he's saying good-bye to her early. Mandy tells Luke she can be patient with him. She says that's good, because this is only going the get harder. Especially because I think I see a post-spa sunburn on her arms. Ouch!
Luke hangs out with Melissa. He interviews that she's mysterious to him because of her shyness. Melissa says that meeting Luke has made her more confident, and he's changed her life. Which is pathetic. And now she thinks she's falling in love with him and he's the only guy in the whole wide world who can look past her body. Except for the other guys who asked her out who she rejected.
Back among the entire group, Luke interviews that he sees "wife credentials" in many of the women. What are wife credentials? Does he mean wife potential? And do they have potential up the roof? And here comes Emme with the sacred ring bowl. What, no alone time with Kristian tonight? She is a goner! The time to burn the mansion down will soon be at hand!
