An unexpectedly observant Aaron says that it was hard saying goodbye to Heather because he thinks that Heather feels that there's something "wrong" with her. Which there sort of is. Which is why she needs to go straight to a therapist and stay out of the dating circuit for a little while. And you know, if Aaron said half the things he tells us to the actual women, he'd be less of a jerk and probably come off a little bit less like a clod. Aaron assures us that Heather's a great person, but that they just didn't have chemistry. Her ass just wasn't firm enough.
Heather tells us that she'll probably be okay tomorrow, but at the moment, she feels like a big loser. She starts to cry and says that the fact that he's more compatible with twenty-two-year-old Brooke than he is with her is just like "a dagger through the heart." She asks, "What have I done wrong? What did I do to deserve this? What is so wrong with me that somebody cannot love me for who I am?" Because desperation only looks attractive when you're drunk. Again: therapy. Your situation is curable. But you have to recognize the problem, first.
The remaining bachelorettes all toast. Brooke pulls Aaron aside. Aaron tells us in an interview that Brooke pulled him aside. Brooke finally reveals that her real dad is in prison. She also explains that a lot of her family doesn't even know it. That I find hard to believe. Do they tell callers that he's out getting milk or something? Aaron hugs her as she cries and tells her not to worry about it. He insists that it's not a big deal to him. Now, his parents, on the other hand -- well, we'll just have to see.
Next week: Aaron meets the families of the four remaining bachelorettes. People ask questions. A relative of Brooke's warns Aaron that her brother is a Marine and will kick Aaron's ass if he hurts her. The women move out of the Malibu Dream House. Aww. Goodbye, Dream House! Another woman is cut from the running.
