I guess they spent all the money just getting to Belize, because the Coco Beach resort seems to just be a bunch of pillows thrown together on the pier.
While Ben and Lindzi bore us silly by talking about the hometown dates next week, we go back to the women's quarters, where a date card arrives for Emily. "Do you Belize in love?" asks the card, and Courtney is royally pissed that Emily is getting a one-on-one date, even one with an awful pun written on it.
Back at the Coco Beach Pillow Pier resort, Lindzi, big surprise, has said she would love to bring him to her hometown to meet her family. And now they are writing some sort of message on a piece of paper to put in a bottle to throw into the ocean, and it's somehow even more inane than the fact that they say "leap of faith" about a hundred times each. And then Ben starts the message by writing "once upon a time," and Lindzi calls that "very doctor-like" -- like how drunk is Lindzi anyway?
And then Ben tells this awful fairy-tale-esque story about Lindzi and him and we watch a montage of Ben and Lindzi scenes with extra sparkle added. It's one of the lamer dates I've ever seen on this show, but my brain's self-preservation mechanism ensures that I can only ever remember a couple of weeks back at a time, so I can't remember anything even from the first few episodes of this season. Lindzi talks about how she's completely falling in love, and they make out to close out this cheap-ass date.
Speaking of cheap-ass dates! Emily flies to some island town to an awaiting Ben, where they ride bikes, drink from coconuts, play basketball with some locals, and talk about how awesome the simple things are. I would buy that attitude if EVEN ONCE I had ever seen a woman on this show be disappointed by some sort of flashy expensive date and said, "Actually, I really prefer the simple things, like wandering around drinking beers and being condescending to other cultures."
Anyway, then these two go diving for lobsters, and they're given some sort of hook to catch the lobsters, and for some reason these two twits thought it would be EASY to catch a lobster, like maybe they were picturing a giant underwater glass tank like at the grocery store, with the lobsters just waiting for them.
