Jake pensively gets dressed, while we hear him talk about how he's not in love with Ali, but with three women, and he doesn't know what to do at the rose ceremony. "I just need a little while to refocus," he says, by which he means "sit and talk to Chris Harrison and recap everything we just saw because god forbid this show trim itself by an hour or even a half-hour."
Jake tells Chris that he was in love with Ali, and everything in him wanted to bring her back, but he didn't think it was fair to the other women, who Jake assumes have things going on at home that they need to take care of too. Oh yeah, like their great careers. And then they recap the dates, and Jake marvels again at how non-hateful Gia was to Saint Lucians, again, despite her $700 shoes (he's downgraded her shoes!) and them being poor, which I still don't understand, despite this being the second time he's mentioned it. And in terms of squashing gay rumours, I'm not sure that being surprisingly familiar with styles of jewelry and prices of women's shoes is exactly the way to go.
And Tenley's a real sport too, while they toured the island, and Jake loved that she said she was falling for him, and she sees the joy in everything.
"Vienna's just always herself, and I can tell, and that puts me at ease," says Jake, whatever that's supposed to mean. Harrison asks if Vienna told Jake she loved him, and Jake says she did. "And, I think I'm in love with her," he says, after Harrison prompts him.
Chris says it must be overwhelming when all these women say these things. "Fucked up" is probably a more accurate assessment, but Disney probably wouldn't like describing things this way. Chris asks if Jake's ready to send someone home and, as usual, Jake isn't ready. Chris says this time it's a little different, because the women have each recorded messages to help him make his decision. Jake stares at photos of three women, and marvels at how he went from "Mr. Dateless" in high school to a dude who gets to shag three women who have made such poor choices in their personal lives that going on a cynical exploitative piece of trash like The Bachelor seems like a good idea.
