So Jason finally finishes up with Natalie, and then heads over to pick up the rose. "The anticipation for who he was going to give the rose to was crazy," says Kari. Please, write a poem about it, why don't you. In an interview, Natalie says she figured she was getting the rose, because she's a good ol' Midwestern girl. So far, she seems like one of the blandest women there, but at least she's not lacking for confidence.
Anyway, Jason stands in front of the throng of women and says he wasn't expecting to have to give out a rose today. Having said that, he's giving the rose to Jillian. Natalie looks like she swallows her tongue.
And then she goes running off to the bathroom, where Raquel sees her (was Raquel not out by the pool?) and goes in to soothe her. In an interview, Raquel is quite generous, saying it's difficult to see the man that you possibly want to spend the rest of your life with dating other women, and this is one of those times that I wonder just how dumb someone can be for going on this show and then freaking out over the object of your affection dating other people, because that is THE ENTIRE POINT OF THE SHOW. Raquel advises Natalie not to react in any way that's going to affect her future time with Jason.
In an interview, Natalie sulkily talks about how Jillian's in "a great place" with Jason, and that could have been her, but "whatever." Well, it's nice to know you aren't letting it affect you.
After the commercial break, after we watch Jillian and Jason head out on their date, we have to endure Lauren trying to convince us that it's actually a good thing it's not her going on the date, because she wouldn't have had enough time to get ready and do her hair, so she'd have to have it curly, and therefore would have been miserable. "Thank god it wasn't me," she says.
So anyway, Jason's taking Jillian to the "world-famous" Disney Hall, which I've never heard of before. "Stepping out of that limo was, like, breathtaking," says Jillian in an interview. She says she really appreciates the structure because of her background in architecture and design. "You are so awesome," she tells Jason. Inside the concert hall, reserved just for them, is a dinner complete with candles and champagne. "I felt this, like, incredible amount of gratitude to be there with Jason," she says, adding she didn't know Jason would be so cool. She's dated enough sauerkrauts in her life. And what's dinner without a little music? There for a private concert is Robin Thicke and his trademark brand of forgettable neo-soul music, because all we need at supper time is Dr. Seaver's son warbling at us.
