Over at the villa, the final individual date invitation arrives. And it goes to... Britt. I take a little consolation in the fact that it says horrifying, "Let's set sail on a sea of love." Jealous Michelle deadpans that there's a good chance their ship will go down.
Bankie Banx continues to croon as the Brad says he's reached a whole new level with Shawntel -- a level no doubt facilitated by the dubious decision to drink beer after more than a couple glasses of wine at dinner. They hop down into the surf and take a moonlight swim, well really a moonlight snog. Brad says he has important decisions to make and is more confused than ever.
The next day, Britt primps for her long-awaited date with Brad, saying this is their chance to find out if there's anything between them or not. Brad picks her up and acknowledges that this date is make-or-break for them. He walks Britt along the beach and points out today's means of transportation -- a big-ass yacht in the middle of the bay. They swim out as the other girls look jealously. Michelle is especially prickly, deeming the boat a waste on someone like Britt. "Britt and Brad," she snarls. "Although it sounds really cute, not only do I not see them getting married, I don't know if I even see them friending each other on Facebook."
But that's not going to stop our intrepid huh-ro from getting him a little Britty booty. He plies her with champagne as they sail around the island to go cliff jumping in Little Bay. Brad shows off as Britt plays scaredy cat. To be fair, if my legs were as twig-like as that, I might be concerned about any potential impact, too. (P.S. How is someone this emaciated a food writer?) She decides to get over her fears and make the jump... "for their relationship." Brad grabs her hand proudly as they swim into shore. In his interview, he talks about Britt's decision to "make a leap," then works that metaphor like the rent's due tomorrow.
Villa. News of the group date arrives during the day for a change of pace. Brad invites Ashley, Chantal, and Michelle to experience "the dawn of a new love." Michelle wastes no time in telling the other girls she doesn't want to be on a date with them. Like Brad, I love her more than I should admit.
