Mixer time! Luke arrives, and Heather runs forward to greet him. But Luke asks Mandy for alone time first. Meanwhile, Heather asks for a champagne refill and exposits that two more girls are leaving tonight. Hooray! I wish it were six, but two is better than one. The more people they kick off, the sooner this show is gone for good. Luke asks Mandy for an example of something hard she had to go through to learn a life lesson or whatever. Mandy admits that she once had an eating disorder, and her current size is because of her recovery. And then she says Luke likes her for her, even though she's heavy. Which she isn't, but it must be said at least five terms per episode anyway.
While Mandy tells Luke about her eating disorders, Kristian analyzes their body language, noting that Luke's feet are not pointing towards Mandy. But that's probably so that he'll be able to get as much of a jump start as possible out the door when Kristian comes after him. Heather interviews that she's feeling a lot of pressure and stress right now and hopes that Luke likes her as much as she does him and she literally put me to sleep just now. Maybe it's because I've been up since 2:45 am PST and it's now 11:30 PST and I just spent the entire day traveling across the country by car, rail, monorail, and plane, but I prefer to think it's because I just can't listen to these women say the same things over and over again while displaying little to no additional personality week after week after week. If they don't think there's more to them than their weight, then why are they surprised when that's all the men they date see, too?
Luke and Heather sit down at a table with hilariously tiny chairs. Way to be cruel, set decorators. Heather desperately sobs that she doesn't want to go home and she wants to stay here with Luke. He says that might not be possible, since he has to cut two girls tonight and he doesn't get as much time as he'd like getting to know them, mostly because he uses the little time he gets sticking his tongue down their throats instead of making conversation. Luke blows smoke up Heather's ass about how he really likes who she is as a person and all I can think about is that he has bad hair.
