Off to London! Tea! Scones! British people!
So there are only 10 guys left. Let’s see if I can name them all:
Arie, Jef, Sean, Chris, Doug, Ryan, Kalon, Alejandro…….and two others! Oh, guy that I thought was Charlie is one of them, and Wolf is the last one. Five of them haven’t had a one-on-one date, and there are two one-on-one dates this week.
Sean gets the first one! They get a double-decker bus tour. And Sean says it! I think it’s the first time of the season, he’s falling for her!! They also take a selfie with a digital camera before selfies even were a thing, can always count on this show to start the next biggest trend.
So we don’t like Kalon, that’s established. Kalon makes a super great comment on how if you win that every date will be a group date because of Ricki. Which of course isn’t a great way to look at it, and is wrong. But whatever.
Sean and Emily have a great and adorable time. They get to tour London and then have dinner in the Tower of London where Sean is a “prisoner of love.”
The group date is: Chris, Arie, Ryan, Doug, Alejandro, Travis, John, and Kalon. So Jef gets that other one-on-one
Emily and Sean end their date with a rose and a make out on top of the Tower of London because medieval torture turns everyone on.
The group date goes to the birthplace of Shakespeare where they will perform Romeo and Juliet. But first they have to audition. Arie hates acting. Which is good, because we don’t want him acting out his feelings, we want him to be genuine. Arie gets to be the nurse, he does not really get Shakespeare, or what he’s saying. But he tries…points for trying…? He gets to wear tight as the nurse. Oh Arie.
At the cocktail portion of the date Chris is speaking with Kaylon and says that Emily has a lot of baggage. Doug confronts him about it, and Kaylon will not “retract” the statement, he called Ricki baggage. So it’s not just hearsay. It’s legit. Wellll wow Kaylon you suck. Doug tells Emily about it because #singleparentssticktogether.
Emily wants to go out there and rip his limbs off and beat him with them. Which is like an almost direct Chad quote. Huh, never noticed how similar Chad and Emily are.
Emily and Doug go back to confront Kaylon and Emily does not want to hear it. And she tells Kaylon to get the f*** out. Emily is not here for this BS. And she is disappointed that none of the men told her about it, which like isn’t really their faults because we don’t like snitches on this show. But Emily is not down for that and no one gets a rose on the date. OH SNAP.
Jef and Emily go to afternoon tea for their date. But it’s not just any tea, it’s some proper English tea and an etiquette lesson. They run away and go to a pub. Jef brings up the Kaylon drama and how if Ricki is baggage then she’s a Chloe handbag (I don’t understand that reference, should be a sign to say no to Jef). They then drink some tea in the London eye and Jef promises to never lie to her, which is a big promise. They could dance all night long in Utah and be the bestest friends ever, blech. He obviously gets the rose.
Cocktail party time! Emily is still disappointed in everyone, and lets Arie know that. Arie doesn’t want to spend his time with Emily talking about other people (that’s rational). Emily is still miffed. Honey, you need to get over this.
Sean and Jef already have roses, the next ones go to:
Doug, Ryan, Chris, John, Travis AND OMG THERE IS ONLY 1 LEFT AND ARIE IS IN THE BOTTOM 2
She is definitely punishing him for not telling her about Kaylon, and is obviously most upset about him because she likes Arie the best. Ugh.
Arie gets the last rose, duh. So bye bye to Alejandro who had 2 minutes of total screen time.
They’re going to Croatia next, and this was in 2012 so that was back before it was cool. So let’s get ready for that drama!
