Seeming more than a little tipsy from the wine she's been drinking (her cheeks are more than a little bit rosy), Shayne starts telling Matt why she wants him to meet her family and what a great person she is. He cops a feel while brushing her hair out of her eyes. Sly. Then more making out. Chris comes out and crashes the party. The girls all look sullen. Matt voices over that this is the hardest decision he's had to make. Um, you've kissed them all, who was the worst? Kick that person out. Seems like an easy call.
In the rose ceremony room, a grim Chris reminds them how important this is. Well, duh. Matt gives the first rose to Shayne, who's still looking tipsy. Then one to Noelle. Maybe he does like personality. Who knew? Next up is Chelsea, and the editors cut to another ugly glare from Robin. Oh, that girl so knows she's going home. The final rose goes too...invisible Amanda. Oh, Robin is AN-gry! Love it! She's not even looking at Matt, while Amanda just stands there beaming. At least Marshana manages a somewhat pleasant smile for the English gent.
In a talking head, Marshana insists she gave it her all. She "got in a pool," "played rugby" and "took an elbow to the face." Now she's going home "100 percent the lady that [she] arrived being." Whatever, that means. Then the fabulous gal trips while walking out the door. Robin just stands there in stunned silence. She gives Matt the evil eye as she exits. Was that the hyped dramatic part I was promised? Talking head Robin shows some emotion and starts crying about how it is "his loss" and blah, blah, blah. I'm not paying attention to what she's saying. Too busy looking at her red puffy face in utter amazement that she could look even more unpleasant than she did earlier. Then she says "Fuck him." Oh, that was the dramatic moment. I think.
Back in the rose ceremony room, Matt tells the final four that he's delighted to go home with them and he's really looking forward to it.
Next week: Matt heads off to meet the 'rents, especially Shayne's famous father, Lorenzo Lamas. I think the announcer is maybe overstating it with the word "famous," but whatever. Lorenzo looks like he gives Matt a stern talking to, while Chelsea's dad thinks she isn't being honest about her feelings. Sweet Noelle has a conservative father, shocker, and Amanda's parents want to know if she's slept with him yet. And it looks like Amanda mom tries to get a little cougar action going. I'm beyond glad that Daniel will be back for that. Yikes!
