Simon says he didn't think Shayne was Matt's type at all. Matt's dad asks her how old she is, and she says 22, and then Trish asks about her acting, giving Shayne the chance to talk about how she wasn't good at first, but worked at it every day. And now, presumably, is awesome! Simon grills her a little bit about whether she sees The Bachelor as a similar challenge, and she blah-blahs something.
Simon admits that he was a little hard on her, but that she acquitted herself well, and then he and Shayne have one of those weird heart-to-hearts on reality shows where people pretend they're not being filmed, even though the presence of the cameras is obviously informing what they're saying. Next up is a chat with Shayne's mom, and I missed what they said. Let's presume it was about connections, and possibly unicorns.
Matt sees her off, and he admits to his family that he's more at ease with Shayne, but more passionate about Chelsea. His parents figure that Shayne is more sincere about this whole nonsense then Chelsea is, but Simon also says he can see Matt with Chelsea more than he can see him with Shayne.
Back to Barbados, where Matt greets Chelsea along the water, and announces he has a surprise for her. He has a blindfold, but since this is family-friendly ABC, it's just so he can surprise her with a helicopter ride, and not a precursor to a night of experimentation, at least not that we see. And suddenly it's Magnum P.I. with about ten million shots of the helicopter flying around the beautiful Barbadian coastline. And I have to admit I'd much rather watch an hour-long Barbados tourism video.
But then they touch down and go for a walk and a picnic on an empty beach. They talk about their possible future together, and Chelsea says there's no one else she'd rather spend her time with. "We fit well together on the beach," says Chelsea in a talking head.
And it looks like they're going to be fitting well together at the Hilton tonight, which Chelsea says is her last chance to win Matt. She hands him a "California survival kit," with surf wax and a map, and I couldn't see what else was in the dowry. More blather about being vulnerable and "falling in love." (They both say they're "falling in love" with each other.) Then they start making out, and Chelsea orders him not to have any fun tomorrow. "Go on your date and do exactly the same things you're doing now, but don't have any fun." In a talking head, Matt goes on about how incredible Chelsea says. "I hope we can get through this together," he says. Isn't that, per the premise of the show, up to you?
