Uh-oh! We're at dinner now, and Elyse says she's "sick of being single," and Ben, understandably, seems to hear that as she wants to be with someone, not necessarily him specifically, so she has to then say, essentially, "When I said I was sick of being single, I didn't mean I was sick of being single." After some awkwardness, Ben pulls out the rose and launches into a long-winded speech about how he was hoping for something more from her, and his relationships with the other women are so far beyond what he thinks they could get to, and he goes on for what feels like hours like JUST SHOOT HER ALREADY IT WOULD BE MORE HUMANE. So she's not getting a rose, and he walks her down the beach because maybe he's going to drown her? She tearfully asks what she did wrong, and he just babbles the same things he said at dinner. He sees her off into a little tugboat or something, and she cries and says she feels like he didn't give her a chance, and she tried to open up as much as she could, and given that this is more Elyse than we've seen this entire season, I don't imagine we're going to miss her.
And Ben has to stand on the beach (barefoot!) while this annoying ballad about "this year's love had better last" plays for two hours or so.
Back at the house, the women are discussing how maybe Elyse won't come home from the date, and someone else says that regardless of whether she does, there will be another eliminated later like WE ALL KNOW HOW IT WORKS and then everyone is all "shut UP!" when the grunt arrives to take Elyse's bags. Courtney is at least honest when she says she's pleasantly surprised. "Another one bites the dust," she says. Still having a hard time believing that some of the women never seem to grasp that for them to stay, others have to leave.
