In the bowling alley, Andrew and Jen attempt some weak banter. They both suck at it, but they persevere. She immediately throws a gutter ball. He teases her. A teeny, almost imperceptible spark makes an effort to appear. She throws another gutter ball, and he kills the spark, because instead of giving her more crap about it, which is what he should have done, he gives her overly earnest bowling lessons. Idiot. She gets one pin down. "You knocked the heck out of that one, though," he says. Oh, there's that spark again. Kill it, Andrew, kill it! "If I get a strike, you have to give me a kiss," he says. Aaaaand he killed it. Much too obvious. He does get the strike. He does get the kiss. "I am the best bowler ever," he says. Heh. I cannot tell you how much easier Andrew is to take during this date than he has been at any other time during this show, ever. As weaselly, phony, and generally unbearable as he is when he's around Kirsten, he comes across as a tiny bit charming and funny during the bowling with Jen, probably because he's less intimidated. If I must watch Andrew, I far prefer the Jen-related Andrew to the Kirsten-related Andrew. Jen and Andrew head back to the resort, Andrew promising "spa treatments."
Andrew tells us that they headed back to the Golden Door Spa for what he calls "an afternoon of exfoliation." Well, la-dee-dah. They enter the exfoliation studio and lie down on tables in black swimsuits. The princess of exfoliation tells them that the staff will be applying turquoise clay, which "will help detoxify your system." No, no! It's not the participants who need to be detoxified! It's the audience! Think of the audience! The exfoliation team rubs on the clay. (Oh, shut up, Clay people. Must you be everywhere? What are you, kudzu?) Andrew moans happily, and asks Jen for confirmation that the mud rubbing feels good. "Uh huh," she says. Jen points out the fascinating fact that this is their second round of massages together. Apparently, someone's imagination is very, very limited. She goes on to explain that after they got the clay rubbed on, they had to go in the shower to remove the clay. Wow, you don't think this is why they compulsively send people to spas on dates, do you? So they can show them in the shower together? I really don't think they'd stoop to that. In the shower, Jen rubs clay off herself and Andrew rubs clay off Jen. She says that she was hesitant to get in the shower with him at first, but "it was actually a little bit romantic." They smooch in the shower, and Andrew voices over that Jen is gorgeous. Being soaked and in her bathing suit probably helps.
