The next morning, Caribbean music plays even though we are in Hawaii, which is nowhere near the Caribbean. Luke says that he really thinks that Malissa is in this for him and she may well be the girl for him. Tali walks up and Luke interviews that as soon as he saw her he forgot all about his date with Malissa. Ouch! Luke says that their date today will be on the water because Tali was in the Israeli Navy and thus will be at home on a boat. Oh, I was wondering if she had to serve in the Israeli armed forces. I kind of assumed that she moved to America to avoid the mandatory service. I was wrong. I want to know more about Tali's navy experience. That's so much more interesting than this show. Surprisingly, Tali interviews that knowing that she was going on the water with Luke was "kinda scary" to her. She's afraid of water?? She must have hated her time in the Navy, then. Oh, I guess she spent her time in a bunker instead of on the water. She hasn't actually been in an ocean since the age of 12 because she's that afraid of it and goes out of her way to avoid it. Even when she was in the Navy she avoided it! Luke has done what the Israeli Navy could not! But this date is going to suck ass now. Tali says she'll just have to suck it up and deal and try to enjoy herself, because this is all the time she gets with Luke. The boat sets sail, and Tali says she was able to "self-motivate myself." Even so, she spends most of the date shaking and visualizing drowning. But it gets worse! Tali asks what else they'll be doing today and Luke says he had planned for them to go snorkeling. Tali refuses and makes pouty faces. Oh come on, Tali -- I'm sure they'll give you a life jacket. What's there to be scared of when you have a life jacket?
Luke interviews that he tried to plan a perfect date for Tali, only to have her "wrought with fear" instead. He's starting to think this may have been the wrong date choice. But it's not like he chose it anyway. The producers did, and they probably knew Tali was afraid of the ocean when they did it, too. Luke says Tali doesn't have to snorkel if she doesn't want to, but she does anyway. Tali clings to the boat ladder while Luke tries to talk her through everything. He's actually very nice and considerate about the whole thing, and Tali feels like she can really trust him. Ha! She now has both a life preserver and a life jacket, but she credits Luke for making her feel safe. With that, they actually get to do some snorkeling. Luke says that it meant a lot to him that Tali wanted to be around him so much that she overcame her fear of salt water. Then they get to have a picnic lunch on the boat and Luke says that Tali was very courageous because she was scared but did it anyway. "One more fear to go," Tali says. Luke interviews that Tali is not an easy choice to take to the end because of their cultural differences. Even so, he says he has feelings for Tali that he's never had for any other woman. Didn't he say that about Malissa, though? And isn't true love wanting to be with just that person and no one else, in which case Luke cannot possibly really be in love with any of these girls?
That night, they get dinner on some patio. With drinks, of course! Tali says that today was a really big step for her because she hasn't been in an ocean in fourteen years. Did she choose to be in the Navy or did they choose for her? If it's the latter, she must have been so pissed. I want to know more! I find Tali's military experience fascinating. Luke asks if Tali is now ready to dive right into the next ocean. "Don't get your expectations too high!" she giggles. You know, when they actually let Tali speak, she is very likeable. She interviews that she's falling "deeply in love" with Luke but that's very difficult when he's dating two other girls at the same time. She tells him that it'll be hard tomorrow when she's worried that he's falling for someone else. Way to be vulnerable, Tali. Malissa has nothing on you! Luke says that he's falling for Tali, too. Make out! Tali interviews that she has feelings for Luke that she's never had for any other man. With that, Luke invites her up to his room to "snuggle." Luke, do not say "snuggle." That is not attractive in a man. "For real? Oh, awesome," Tali says, not actually looking that thrilled about it. I wouldn't be, either. I don't need a national TV audience watching me go to some guy's hotel room.
Once again, there are flower petals on the bed, although these are from a different kind of flower. Luke pours some champagne. Tali interviews that she is "so falling in love for this dude." Tali proposes a toast: instead of to "more love" like they usually do, she wants to toast to "one love." I think it's really cool of Tali to toast to a Bob Marley song like that. Then they get in the hot tub for more making out. Also, he gives her a foot massage, which is very nice. Luke interviews that despite their differences, he thinks he cares enough for Tali to be able to overcome them.
And now it's Mandy's turn. Luke says that he had great dates with Malissa and Tali, but Mandy is "at the top of [his] list." Wait, what? I thought Malissa was at the top of his list and he was almost ready to propose to her! Actually, I thought Tali was at the top of his list and he felt more strongly about her than any other woman ever! But now it's Mandy? So confusing. Good thing I really don't care. Mandy interviews about how difficult it was to have the last date because everything in Mandy's life is difficult. Their date will be ATV rides, for the broken neck enthusiast! Luke interviews that Mandy is the most guarded of the three remaining women and he's hoping she'll come out of her shell as she spends more time with him. They have lunch and talk with their mouths full of food. Mandy brings up a good point, that she doesn't know if Luke will be able to make a "sound decision" over which girl he cares for in a reality TV situation. But she honestly believes that she's the best match for Luke. Luke interviews that Mandy is probably the most ready for a relationship out of the remaining three girls. Ugh, but she's so boring. They take a walk to some volcanic rocks and Mandy whines yet again about how tough it is to watch Luke date other girls.
Dinner time! Mandy and Luke get in a limo as Luke interviews that he's starting to worry that Mandy is "cracking" a bit and spending more time on their dates worrying about the other girls than having fun with him. He hopes she'll chill out tonight. Doubtful! Mandy interviews that she's nervous and this has been a difficult journey for her. Luke and Mandy will be eating dinner on a boat, because Luke just loves eating on boats. Personally, I think it's a bad idea. Because of seasickness. Luke asks Mandy how she liked the date today. "I love just feeling like the adrenaline with just being in nature and ... I didn't mind the dust. I like looked at the mirror when I went to wash my hands and I was like, 'I have like a beard!'" Mandy is just not a great conversationalist. Something you don't want to do when you're trying to set a romantic mood for a date, ladies? Talk about having a beard. It's just not sexy. Luke asks Mandy if she had any idea on the first night she met him if she'd be in Hawaii with him now. Mandy says she had no idea and is surprised at how deep her feelings for him are. Luke says they've had a lot of nice moments, and Mandy goes in for a kiss then pulls away. No make out sessions for Mandy. She's always aware that she's on camera.
In lieu of Luke's hotel room, they climb on a mattress on the boat. It also has flower petals on it and there's champagne waiting for them. Luke interviews that Mandy really let her guard down on this date, and that's what he was waiting for. He asks if she could see herself being married to him. She says she could. That gets Luke a makeout session. Mandy asks Luke if he could see himself married to her. He says he can. More making out. Luke says he's "into" Mandy and he knows she's "into" him. Mandy interviews that Luke is "becoming [her] lover" and she trusts him. And she's totally in love
