Ashley hugs Jake, and outside she tells us that she thinks Jake is now cautious after what happened with Rozlyn. What that has to do with HER getting sent home is left unexplained. Were she and Rozlyn buddy-buddy or something? That's the only way where maybe her "after what happened with Rozlyn, Jake might not be sure I'm less genuine than ten other women" assertion makes any kind of minor sense at all.
Christina tells us she came her looking for love, and she hears the other women giggling inside and she starts to cry, and says it's hard because she knows for a fact that there other women who aren't there for the right reasons. As usual, I'm torn between being annoyed at supposedly mature women like this who wrap themselves up so much in someone they only know as a collection of pixels on a television screen that they would cry over being rejected by him, and being pissed at this show for making them feel like this is any kind of legitimate shot at finding a husband, and that the amount of money and jewelry showered on you is the best way to judge a relationship.
Jake toasts the rest of the women, saying he knows tonight's rose ceremony was really tough, and there were some disappointing "twists." In what world does someone being on The Bachelor for reasons other than actually getting married constitute a twist?
The credits coda, which typically makes the women seem a lot more charming and funny and nice than that happens before the credits, involves them laughing it up about what kind of animals they'd be in bed, with Tenley calling dibs on "giraffe."
Find out why our vloggers think that Rozlyn was wise to pick a staffer instead of Jake.
