Back on the yacht, the women are telling Aaron that Helene loves to talk your ear off. I really haven't seen that. Heather never seems to shut up. Hayley says that she's much quieter: "When [she talks], it's for a reason." Brooke tells us again that Helene loves to talk, talk, talk. Aaron tells the women that it's "great" that they're all talking about each other. He loves it when they all fight over him, so the next time he gives some shocked look that the women are being "vindictive," somebody should just smack him. Aaron tells us that this show is bringing out the women's competitive side, and that he thinks they're trying to make Helene look bad because they know he gave her that personal note. Yeah, that's it. They can't possibly not like her for reasons that have nothing to do with him. And I'm sure they just started talking about Helene without prompting at all. Shut up, Aaron. Tool.
The sun zooms down into the sea for our transition to nighttime. Helene and Aaron wander into yet another house. It might have been the same one as Gwen's. I don't know. Helene tells us that she's not sure who will be cooking dinner. She hopes it will be Aaron, because she doesn't feel like cooking. In other words, Aaron will be cooking. Aaron tries to start the gas grill, and Helene teases him because he's not very good at getting it started. He tosses some shish kebabs on the grill, and Helene orders, "Just cook it thoroughly, okay?" Aaron responds, "Yes, ma'am!" Man, they already sound like a married couple. And not a particularly happy one, either.
Helene and Aaron eat. Aaron asks if he passes the cooking test. Helene dismissively says, "Yeah. It's good." Aaron brings up Helene's threat to leave a few episodes ago because of all the Crazy Christi drama. Is she over that? Helene says that she is. She explains that she told herself going in that if she didn't like being there, or Aaron, she'd leave. They joke about Helene's reputation for being talkative. Aaron tells us that he doesn't see that as a problem. He doesn't even notice it. Yeah, that's because if Helene does all the talking, you'll never have to worry about being asked uncomfortable questions like "What do you plan to do with your life?" or "How do you really feel about me?"
For the next part of the date, Aaron and Helene are going to sit around and watch a slide show. This is a date? I think I'd rather dress up like Cinderella rather than watch slides on a date. Even worse, these are slides of Aaron and Helene as kids. God, how dull. Helene whines that she doesn't want to look at slides of herself. Well, then you shouldn't have given them to the show, should you? They sit on a couch and look at the pictures. We see the obligatory naked-baby-in-the-tub shot of Aaron. Helene as a little girl dressed up for Halloween. Helene in a frilly dress. Helene as prom queen. Young Aaron sitting on the toilet. Can we get Aaron out of the bathroom, please? After seeing The Ring, I already have enough sources for nightmares to last the next few weeks. Helene as a girl, dressed up like a bride. Yikes. Aaron as a total geek at a piano recital. He had the thick glasses and plaid jacket and everything. Wow. Helene as a cheerleader.
