But some party. Melissa says everyone's kind of tense, and there's Naomi sitting all by herself. She complains that earlier she was having fun with Jason (read: "I was kissing him") but then it wasn't as much later (read: "other women were kissing him"). So we're getting into that part of the season where the women miraculously figure out that it's tough to be in love with someone who dates and kisses other women. [And has sex with them in a tent. - Z] Yes, it happens every season, and every time I could not have less sympathy for anyone who agrees to be on this show. "It makes it feel less special," says Naomi.
Of course, the real reason for Naomi sulking is so Jason will come over and talk to her. So here we go again with "it just feels real now" talk, where the women pretend they didn't expect to fall in love, and surprise! They're falling in love! Jason blathers on that she's the one person he'll always want the best for, whether they'll be together or not, and they'll always be in each others' "lifes."
Then Melissa's prattling on to Megan, and there's Shannon whining about how tough this is, and there's Shannon stalking Jason, and there's Megan telling the women (via the cameraman) to "man up." She says she was having a great time. "I was, like, in love with kissing him." And also the sound of her own voice, don't forget.
Megan sits down for some one-on-one time with Jason, and she makes fun of the other women complaining about how hard this is. "We're on a rooftop. This is beautiful." Jason tells her that she's "such a great person," which she must be used to, and she kind of pouts around looking for a kiss, but she doesn't get it.
Lauren now, who says she's just being herself when she orders Jason to get rid of other women. "I think he likes being bossed around. Some people like to be dominated." They sit and chat and she basically orders him to give her a rose. She's a little drunk. In an interview, she says she doesn't think the girl who cries should get the rose, but the one who's blunt and honest. I don't understand people who think saying awful things is OK because they're being open and honest. If you're shallow, stupid or racist, for example, is honesty really the best policy? "If he gives the rose to anyone but me, I will be pissed," she says. By which she means angry, not drunk. Although she'll probably be both.
"Usually, wrap parties are a blast," says Jason. Well, he would know! Now it's time to talk to Melissa, who needs a hug because she's crying so much. "Today proved to me that I really do care about you," she says. "Apparently I've fallen for you," she says. And they make out. "I've only been unlucky in love," she says in an interview. Aw. Despite the crying, I like Melissa.
