We are informed that hardly anybody gets to ride in the blimp, so it was "unthinkable" that they got to, like maybe this happened for FREE or something. "Stuff like this completely leaves you speechless, doesn't it?" he says to her, and then in an interview says they saw Los Angeles in a way that nobody else has ever seen Los Angeles. Well, yeah, except for people in balloons, planes, helicopters or who have RIDDEN IN THE BLIMP BEFORE. Not that I wouldn't enjoy it myself, mind you. In the blimp, Jason tells Melissa he had a wonderful time, and gives her a rose. Then they start making out again, like so much for the spectacular view. Melissa calls it her best first date ever, and the blimp starts flashing "MELISSA + JASON". I can't BELIEVE they didn't give us a reaction shot from the other women.
Next up is the group date. Jason takes the eight women to a store and tells them to pick out whatever clothes and accessories they want. Awww. He's the best pimp ever! "Jason is treating us very well. Good boyfriend," says Naomi, like maybe Jason is PAYING FOR THIS HIMSELF or something. Natalie says going shopping is like the mothership calling her home. Crazy ladies! Shop 'til you drop!
Then they go to some boutiquey hotel and have dinner by a pool, and the women all rave about what a dream date it is, even though I can't imagine their dream dates involve SEVEN OTHER WOMEN, and Erica asks Jason what he's looking for in a relationship, and Jason snooze-inducingly blathers on about how it's important to date to get it out of your system before you settle down, and the women compete to see who can agree with Jason the most.
But when you introduce a pool in the first act, it has to go off in the -- wait, what act is this? And I guess pools don't "go off," but the clothes do, and the women get in their bikinis and some dingbat decided a "talent show" is in order, which means we watch Jason's "breakdancing," which is the slowest breakdancing I've ever seen and looks more like that dance performance you go to in college where you're trying to impress the woman in your English class and she wants to go to this performance by her roommate's first-year interpretive dance student friend, and you sit there seriously debating the various ways to kill yourself. That is what Jason's dancing is like.
