Ben, having left cab fare on the nightstand for Nicki, is now meeting up with Lindzi. She's excited to see what happens today. Ben tells her he's got an "adrenalin" date lined up, and Lindzi is concerned that he means they'll be jumping out of a helicopter again. Ben tells us that he's learned that Interlaken is the "extreme sports capital of Europe," and I imagine he learned it from the Interlaken chamber of commerce.
So they hike through the woods, and any notion that the Bachelor plans his own dates is dispelled when Ben is surprised and a little nervous when he finds out that they're going rappelling down some cliff faces. Lindzi seems to have forgotten that Ben's love has cured her fear of heights, blah blah metaphor for love blah blah, right? Where Lindzi is nervously laughing, Ben is actually quite quiet and looks genuinely frightened. But nobody's too scared for marriage metaphors! Lindzi tells us you have to be there for each other, just like rappelling down a cliff! Congratulations on that comparison, Lindzi: you came up with something that would apply to LITERALLY EVERYTHING done by two people at a time. You have to be there for each other, just like when you're folding bedheets! You have to be there for each other, just like when you're playing "Chopsticks" on the piano! You have the be there for each other, just like when you're playing cribbage!
They rappel down, kiss in the middle, don't die. And now they are in a hot tub, hugging each other and saying "like" and "I know, right?" but those are just words that fill in the spaces when their tongues aren't in each other's mouths.
Their dinner is in a much more formal location. I believe it's the hotel where Ben is staying. No helicopter ride for Lindzi! As usual, people don't have anything more to talk about other than just rehashing the events of the day, throwing some dimestore relationship psychology into the mix. Lindzi is saying something about being vulnerable, and Ben loved watching her open up. He's wearing a bowtie, which is something my wife keeps trying to push on me. Let's just say that the Ben Flahkniskl endorsement isn't a strong argument in its favor.
Ben appears surprised when Lindzi says she hopes there's a proposal for her at the end of this. What the hell does he think she's here for? He tells us that he's really starting to love this woman. Not "in love," not "I can see myself falling in love," but that he's really starting to love him.
