Chantal changes out of her wet clothes into a men's shirt, which is a weakness of mine. And then they have a boring conversation about Chantal breaking down, and Brad tells her not to do that anymore. So much for being honest. In other words, I want you to open up but not so much that I feel uncomfortable. Anyway, what woman could resist being told to shut up about her damn feelings? Not Chantal, because next thing you know they are making out. "I'm crazy about you," she whispers, which means everyone watching leans in to hear the traditional Bachelor non-committal response that he hopes doesn't make him come across as too much of a douchebag. Brad looks all thoughtful and says, "This could happen every night," he says, like this just occurring to him. Jesus, what a phony. "I want it to, to be with you," she whispers.
Then he gives her the rose and they coo at each other, and she talks about how glad she is that she can be herself with him, even though he just accused her of playing games when she gets emotional, so Chantal is some kind of delusional right here.
The next day, Michelle is listing all the things she hates: group dates, rain, Chantal, joy. What a treat Michelle is for everyone. "Brad is not Chantal's man. He's mine," she tells us.
Anyway, today's date is all about "adventure and facing fear" Brad tells us, and constantly overuses the word "ladies" as he talks about how careful he has to be to divide his time equally.
So they're rappelling down a waterfall, and Jackie tells us that she's scared of heights, so Brad tries to comfort her by telling her about how when he and Michelle went rappelling, it felt great to get to the bottom. Meanwhile, Michelle is making her stinkface, because she says that she and Brad made a pact to never go rappelling with anyone else, which is either a) too stupid to be true or b) too stupid to take seriously if it is true.
So one by one the women slowly make their way down the waterfall. "Brad is amazing. He was telling everybody they're going to be OK!" says Ashley, which is one of those statements a woman makes on this show that really makes me wonder what kind of assholes they usually date, that basic human interaction rates as "amazing."
