There's a commercial looking for "great guys" to date The Bachelorette (why start now?) who is Emily Maynard, which is a thing that apparently people know now.
Anyway, it's dinner time on the date, and Ben wants to get Nicki to open up, which seems to mean asking Nicki if watching the wedding was difficult for her, and she talks some more about how she wants her "second chance at a fairytale" and now he is asking if she and her ex-husband went through couples therapy (which they did) and she talks about losing trust.
Then if this conversation is too scintillating for you to handle, we go back to the house, where Elyse is angry over not getting a one-on-one date and whining about other people getting more group dates and how she "deserves" this and that, and I really hope she goes home today, considering that we're down to eleven women and she's one who I still can't remember her name until they put it on screen for me.
The group date card arrives. "Diamonds are a girl's best friend," is what it says, and the only one whose name is not read -- Elyse -- is the one who gets the other one-on-one date. And now Blakeley is the one who's pissed, because she was hoping Ben would get to see her fun side. (Spoiler alert: her fun side is the front!)
Back on the date, Ben tells Nicki that she "totally opened up" today and so he "rewards" her with a rose and then they start making out, as you do. It's that extra-passionate kissing you do where you can't even be bothered to put down the wine glass, Nicki.
So the group date reference to "diamonds" is about baseball instead of jewelry, and the women have to pretend that they're just as happy about playing baseball in Roberto Clemente Stadium. They do, however, look like they're having some fun hitting and tossing the ball around. Then Harrison comes out to explain that there's a beach party tonight with Ben, but the women are going to be split into teams, and only the winning team gets the "privilege" of going to the beach party, while the losers have to go home.
