Commercials. I will not comment on the commercials for Beauty and the Beast on DVD. I will not.
We return back for the evening of the rose ceremony. An eagle-eyed reader has pointed out to me that this ceremony may not be taking place at the Malibu Dream House like I had always assumed. That would explain why the women are showing up at the house. I was under the impression that this was all taking place at different parts of the same mansion, but now I'm not so sure. Also? I don't care. The CGI rendition of Chris Harrison greets Aaron in the deliberation room to ask him how things are going. Aaron is tense. He doesn't know what to do! It's such a hard decision! He claims that he doesn't know what he's going to do. He wants five minutes with each of the girls before he makes a decision. They act like this is some big deal, even though he has had private conversations with the girls before making his decision in previous episodes. But this episode is running really short, because these people are so terribly boring and have nothing of interest to say. So they'll cling to anything that adds drama while dragging the show on longer. The CGI rendition of Chris Harrison agrees to Aaron's request, but tells Aaron to watch the women's personal videos as he heads out to tell the women about the "change in plans." The CGI rendition of Chris Harrison grabs the roses as he leaves. He has them in this little mat thing to carry them, like they're sacred and he's not allowed to sully them or something.
The videos are as insipid and worthless as they always are. Helene had an "awesome" time and thought the evening was romantic and hopes that Aaron is falling for her the way she is falling for him. The CGI rendition of Chris Harrison ushers Helene into the house. On the video, Gwen tells Aaron that their date was amazing and romantic. She says that the next time she gets married, it will be "for real." Well, she just eliminated herself, I think. She's wearing red in the video and shows up to the house in a red dress. In her video, Brooke says that she wishes that she knew a joke that would help Aaron make his decision easier, because she's not deaf and has heard See 'N Say Aaron repeat fifty jillion times how tough this is for him. She says that she can't make Aaron's decision any easier, because she's really growing to care for him and feels comfortable and safe around him. Brooke shows up at the house and is greeted by the CGI rendition of Chris Harrison. The camera closes in on the serial-killer shrine. Aaron does that heavy breathing thing that makes him look like he has to cough.
