The shoes go back on, then there's drinks. Tiana didn't realize this would be a competition. Has she never seen this show? Chris walks out in his manservant role, drops off a rose and walks out. Michelle says it will kill her if she doesn't get a rose. She feels she deserves him. Rozlyn claims she's not desperate. Vienna basically tells Jake that she wants the rose, and she's very energetic. She starts showing him a bump in her leg and makes him kiss it. Inside the girls talk about the lucky girl who got to touch his abs. I like that these women are clearly here for all the right reasons. Then Jake sits down next to Kathryn, who is wearing a wedding ring. He's rightly curious. She's a corporate flight attendant and has a pretend fiancé. Wait. What? Seriously. She bought herself a huge (seemingly real) giant engagement ring and wears it? Then she claims that she is hoping for something real? What guy in his right mind would date a girl with that kind of crazy stamped all over her? [If it keeps handsy executives from getting fresh a mile up in the air, it might not be so crazy. - Z] It's easier to overlook the Michelle kind of wacky, since they keep showing her making a jealous face every time she finds out that another girl got Jake's attention, because that's nutty on the inside, but Kathryn's got the wacko on the outside. You can't miss that. She gives Jake the ring and says she hopes he gives it back to her. Please send her home. Please? I don't know if I can handle this weirdo.
Around the couches the women start wondering who the ten girls going home are. They also start getting desperate for some alone or small group time. This goes better for some than others. Stephanie whisks him away for a dancing lesson. Michelle looms jealously. And starts crying about how much she gave up to be here and to be with Jake alone. She's bound and determined to get that first impression rose. Alexa realizes that Michelle's crazy. As does Vienna. Michelle tearily explains how much she wants to be with him. He likes that she's genuine. He relates to the teary girl. Yeah, I just bet he does.
Chris comes back in and clinks a glass to get everyone's attention. They are bringing in some help for him to size up the ladies. It's Jillian, wearing a disco ball dress, and Ed, looking as dopey as he always does. Jake thinks that these two are a stellar example of how this show works out for people. Oh, please don't use these two morons as your role models.
