Let’s get back at it!
We pick up with Caila calling Ashley I out for being extremely annoying and clingy. Which she is. Caila gives up and Jared goes in. Ashley I cries. I lost count with what number cry this was.
Ashley I then cries about her dog Lucy, and I’ll give her this one. She prays to Lucy to get a man she likes. And then walks in Wells. Everyone needs Wells to take Ashley I on this date. Everyone including Lucy the dog. And they’re all really nervous. They need it to happen. HE DOES IT. WELLS GETS IT DONE. EVERYONE CHEERS.
Jared and Caila take the time that Ashley I is away to try and out do Amanda and Josh with on-screen making out. They aren’t going to dethrone Amanda and Josh, but they are on their way.
Ashley I and Wells’ date starts with tacos and taco puns. I like this guy. They eat some tostadas. We learn that Ashley I’s fav band is Hanson. They feed a dog. It’s adorbs.
There’s trouble in paradise with Lace! Lace and Grant are both being stupid. They get in a fight and Grant storms away to sit on his top bunk of his bunk bed. Lace cries.
I know everyone was worried that Jared and Caila were getting all the make out screen time, so let’s show some more Amanda and Josh.
It’s okay Grant and Lace have had their first fight and are over it. Grace is back!
So Nick and Jen want to get it on. And Amanda lets them know that they can have the boom boom room. But Josh says no, he wants the boom boom room. Because Josh sucks. And Amanda is actually asleep in her own bed, and Josh is a dick.
Rose ceremony time!
It’s literally been like 5 years since the last rose ceremony and 4 guys came in. Wells, lamp dude, old dude, and other dude. Aka Brett, Ryan, and Carl.
Couple recap! Grace is back on track. Carly and Evan are still ew and ‘totally falling in love with each other.’ Daniel is on the chopping block and scrambling a little. He brings one of the twins a crap ton of fried foods. Which like, works for me. He then goes on to Izzy and brings her a lamp, in honor of the lamp guy.
Brett (other lamp guy) is confused by Daniel’s lamp encroaching on his territory. So he makes out with Izzy.
Josh and Amanda are back to making out on camera. The twins are worried because Josh is a douche and Amanda does not deserve that. They talk to Nick about it, and Nick has like actual firsthand Josh douche experience. Time to bring up Andi’s book again.
Now it’s actually time for the rose ceremony.
Carly and Evan
Ashley and Wells
Jen and Nick
Izzy and Brett (lamp guy)
Caila and Jared
Lace and Grant
Amanda and Josh
Haley and Emily now are crying. And not giving their roses to anyone…and are now leaving.
WHAT. So Ryan (old dude), Carl (other dude), and Daniel have to go home.
Before they leave they talk with Amanda. And both of them cry. They bring up the book for the ten millionth time. And talk about how Josh has a temper and is a douche canoe. They point out the very valid point that Josh has a crap reputation and Amanda is America’s sweetheart so if you wanted to fix your reputation dating her would look good.
Amanda confronts Josh and he avoids the questions and says he hasn’t done anything for the last 6 months because his dog has cancer. The poor puppy – but like, not a real excuse.
Josh handles it really well by yelling at all the other cast members. So Nick calls out Josh and they yell over each other. For like 5 minutes. Totes not sketch. Josh angry. Josh smash! Josh threatens to leave. Amanda disregards the warning of literally everyone there and decides she trusts Josh.
So Wells wakes up at like 5am because no one else is awake. And down the stairs comes Jami. Who I did not remember/ do not remember her spelling her name like that. She asks Wells because he is literally the only one awake. So people start waking up, those people not including Ashley I. So let’s hide from the impending shitstorm now that she is awake.
Poor Nick takes the bullet as the messenger and lets Ashley I know what happened. Ashley I takes it very well…….by not crying….yet. Nick is mentally and physically preparing for Ashley I to break down. Ashley I believes in her connection with Wells and is not worried.
Jami and Wells drive a thing through some mud and then go swimming in a waterfall place. They also wear matching bathing suits. Wells asks Jami if she likes Batman, since she has a Batman tattoo, which I really really hope she does like Batman. Then they make out.
Ashley I slowly begins to crumble as she is forced to watch Caila and Jared constantly kiss each other. And she’s back to obsessing about Jared. And talking to Caila about how she is really strong and used to be jealous but isn’t jealous anymore. Caila flat out asks Ashley I if she wants Caila to go home. And Ashley I pauses for a hella long time. And then guilts Caila into feeling guilty.
And Ashley I masterminds Caila’s leaving. Which is pretty impressive.
Caila leaves. Jared decides to stay or follow Caila. Ashley I cries. Wells is really popular. Fun!
