Shannon? Not so much. She creepily sneaks up on Jason and Melissa to say that whenever he's done she needs to talk to him.
Eventually, when they settle down to talk, Shannon talks about difficult this is, even though all her friends and family told her that she had the best personality for this show and was going to do great. Then she talks about how she's frozen up and put up this wall. Hee! I always love it when a woman on this show THROWS herself at the bachelor, and when he's not into her she starts blaming herself and the "walls" she put up. "I'm not letting you let me go," she says, and babbles for half an hour, and Jason has a look on his face like he's wondering who farted. This show's not even going to pretend that Shannon's sticking around, because in his next interview, Jason says he just felt "sad" listening to Shannon. While sitting with her, though, he does his best to put her at ease. She goes in for a kiss and gets a perfunctory smack, and despite her best come-hither eyes-closed head tilt, that's all she's getting. "I feel like he kind of rejected my kiss," she says in an interview. It puts the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again, Shannon.
Back at the house, Molly goes to get the card for the two-on-one date. "Let's dance the night away," she reads to Stephanie and Nikki. Stephanie gets excited, while Nikki says, "That's your thing, not mine." What IS your thing, Nikki? Singing's not your thing. Dancing's not your thing. Keeping your tear ducts dry for longer than ten minutes at a stretch is not your thing. God! "There's only one rose. One stays, one goes," continues Molly. Nikki makes a face about having to decide what to wear. I'm guessing that "deciding what to wear" is just not her thing.
Time to give out the rose at the group date. In a voiceover, Jason tells us for what seems like the millionth time that he's not there to hurt anybody. And he talks to the women about how he's been there before. "All I can tell everybody is that it's worth it," he tells them. How so? He got rejected! Remember? Anyway, the rose goes to Naomi, which means that you can get away with sulking in a corner if you kind of look like Eva Mendes and look good in a maid's outfit. Well, that's true.
