Love in the Wild (2011) s02e01 Episode Script

Season 2, Episode 1

Here in the beautiful tropics of the Dominican Republic, seven single men And seven single women are embarking on the dating adventure of a lifetime.
They'll pair up and be thrown into wild and sometimes dangerous adventures to find out if their partner is someone worth fighting for.
I was in the marine corps.
I was with a girl for three years, and when I went up to her to tell her I was leaving for Iraq, she told me she couldn't be with me anymore.
Although I've been through heartbreak, I've been through war, when it comes to this, failure is not an option.
I like things my way.
I'm very take-charge.
But, you know, a guy wants to ride in on their white horse and save the day.
I'm open to that.
I'd say the ladies like me for the wrong reasons.
They just like hearing my voice.
I'm looking for something a bit more substantial.
My strategy for this experience is to literally be my amazing self.
And this time, they have no idea that they're in for some mind-blowing surprises.
Go! This is the most aggressive dating experience you could ever be in.
One, two, three, go.
Just go.
Aah! If they can make it through these perils together Oh, my God.
They can make it through anything.
All right, go, go.
I hate snakes! I hate snakes! You really find out the positives and the negatives.
Aah! Go away! Aah! Good job, babe.
Be careful.
We're here to find that person, to find love, and that's what's so great about these adventures.
Your true colors come out.
You're good.
You're good.
Shut up.
Don't talk to me.
Aah! I can't believe I'm holding it! That's a tarantula.
Aah! Aah! I wanna be with someone that I know is my prince charming.
I have peripheral vision on chicks wherever I go.
Where? Where? Chicks, chicks, chicks.
Let's--let's check them out.
Aah! Along the way, they'll have the chance to try different partners.
Would you like to stay or would you like to switch? Each week, at least one man and one woman will be sent packing.
And as the competition for affection heats up, tempers will flare.
If you keep following me, I'm gonna break a chair over your head.
Um, is that not a threat? Obviously it's my fault.
I'm sorry.
I think it's girl instinct to kind of get your claws out.
Meow! I just hope I get to stay with Ben over boobs McGee over there.
But in the end, one lucky couple in love will win the ultimate prize-- a romantic first-class trip round the world.
I'm the most blessed person on earth right now.
Get ready for ultimate romantic adventure.
Welcome to "love in the wild.
" Aah! Oh, my God! Whoa! Whoa! Ben! Captioned by closed captioning services, inc.
Hubba hubba.
Hi, kids hi! Hi.
Welcome to "love in the wild.
" I'm your host, Jenny McCarthy.
I will be with you along this journey to help cheer you on and probably make fun of you.
I'm just kidding.
No, I'm not.
Okay, just so you guys know, our first- and second-place couples from last year-- Samantha and Mike, Heather and miles-- are still together and very much in love.
So this works! There's hope for you guys.
And it shouldn't be that hard because we have sevgorgeous single women Ooh! And seven hot, smokin' single men.
Well, two of you are ah-ah.
But we'll let it slide.
All right, girls, before you got here, you drew numbers to see who gets to pick your hot guy first.
So one at a time, when you pick your guy, you're gonna go over and stand by him.
Okay? Cina, you are up first.
Stand by your man.
Claim him.
Oh, my gosh, this is tough.
It's like going shopping, isn't it? I know.
It's nothing new for me to have my pick of guys.
I know there's a lot of people who think, you know, "oh, you're 22.
You're too young.
You don't know what love is.
" Age is nothing but a number.
I'm chase.
Nice to meet you.
Nice to meet you.
I'm picked first.
The girl's super sexy.
I mean, I'm one lucky guy.
And so I'm excited at this point.
All right, next up--Tara.
I always get what I want, even if I have to be, like, a little cat and go in slow for the kill and then pounce.
I still will get what I want.
I am here because it's time for Mr.
right, for sure.
hottie with a body.
Tara and Tim.
I felt kinda bad 'cause I was still eyeing up the girl in the red.
And I'm just kind of like, "yeah.
Good to see ya.
" Next up--summer.
Guys that are right for me are the manly man.
I definitely want a guy that's going to kill an alligator and skin it and make me a purse, instead of buying me a purse.
But at the end of the day, I want to meet somebody that is gonna be a good husband, that's gonna be a good father.
And I just don't think those are qualities you can settle on.
How are you? Nice to meet you.
Ooh, Jesse! I think I would go to any length if I knew someone was "the one.
" I can't really think of anything wouldn't do.
All right, next up--Jenny.
Do us Jennys proud.
I walked in on my boyfriend of five years cheating on me, which definitely made me a little jaded and guarded.
Oh, gosh.
I don't know.
I keep on meeting these jackasses and douchebags, and I just wanna find someone down-to-earth and normal.
Hopefully they're here.
Hi, I'm Jenny.
Hi, Jenny.
Nice to meet you, Ben.
Nice to meet you.
All right, next up--Ali.
I believe in soul mates.
It's difficult go through life and to not have someone that you can share something with.
My priority right now is meeting someone, starting a family.
I think I'm willing to do pretty much anything for love.
You have pretty eyes, so I'm going with you.
Jason! All right, next up--yanina.
All right, only two guys left.
What are we, in fourth grade? She picked Ken! I'm Ken.
I thought she was gorgeous.
Her body and her face and her smile just kind of Blinded me for a little while.
Way to go, Ken.
She's hot.
She's beautiful.
I'm very tired of dating younger guys.
The fact that they're very inexperienced makes me the one teaching them how to be in a relationship.
And I am not getting any younger and I wanna find the man for me.
So shauna, I wonder who you're gonna pick.
I got picked last.
Absolutely last.
I wanted to hang my head in shame, but, you know, whatever.
You just have to go on with it, you know? It's gonna be all good.
All right, we have our seven hot couples.
You guys look adorable, by the way.
It's gonna be so interesting to watch what you guys are gonna do.
You know what's even more interesting? Uh-oh.
Oh, God.
What? This.
Come on out! What? More guys.
What?! Oh, my.
Oh, my gosh.
There's more guys? You know, the more, the merrier.
Let's party.
Hello, boys.
Whoo! Seven more guys walked out.
It was like Christmas.
It was awesome.
What is this, option "b"? I was like Hit the brakes! What is going on here? Hi.
Okay, girls, you are going to choose another hot guy to form a trio to go on your first adventure with.
Yay! How excited are you girls? That's awesome.
You boys are gonna have to work very hard to woo your women because there isn't much time.
At the first couples' choice ceremony, 7 boys out of 14 of you will be going home.
Now, girls, this time, to pick your guys, we randomly selected the order for you.
So first again is cina.
Oh, my gosh.
Lucky me.
I know.
Lucky girl.
So who would you like to pick, cina? Um Plaid.
Jason, how you feeling about being first picked? I'm ecstatic right now.
I'm ready.
Right? Go get her.
Well, I got picked first by a hot girl.
I didn't know if it was proper to do a dance, because I wanted to do one.
I'm cina.
Cina? Jason.
Jason, nice to meet you.
Nice to meet you.
Jason seems likes he's one of these guys that puts on a show, like, huffy puffy chest and, like, grandiose.
I'm intimidated by Jason at all.
All right, Ali, you get to pick second.
Who's it gonna be? Um, the guy in the light blue shorts.
All right.
Jenny, you are up next.
Who would you like? Let's go with bachelor number two there.
Franky, did you work out extra hard for this? Yes, I did.
You're lookin' a little buff.
Yeah, let's do it.
I'm ready.
All right, go show her how hard your muscles are.
You got it.
Good luck to ya.
All right, shauna, you are next.
I'm going to go with number four.
Ryan! Yes? You get on over there.
How's it goin'? Ryan.
I'm shauna.
All right, yanina, who is it gonna be? Tallest guy, I think.
Can you turn around for a second? Great choice.
All right, go ahead.
I felt pretty lucky.
The hot little latina picked me, and she was definitely looking good.
Nice to meet you.
All right, Tara.
Who's it gonna be? Blue shirt.
Who-- Leo.
Oh! Just head on over there.
Get your girl.
Smartest girl up there.
That's right.
What is this, "Jersey shore"? I mean, wh-- who the hell is this guy? Summer! Yes.
No choice! That's okay.
I'm happy.
Q! Well, summer, it looks like they saved the best for last.
That's right, q.
You go get her, man! I am rooting for you! I couldn't believe it.
I was like, "why am I getting picked last? Do you see me?" I'm q.
Q, nice to meet you.
Yeah, nice to meet you, also.
How are you? Look at all of our little happy trios! So happy.
Okay, now for my warnings.
Listen up.
Just like last season, the better you finish, the better advantage you guys are gonna have at the couples' choice ceremony.
But for this season, there's a new twist.
The further back you place in the adventure, the more rugged your accommodations will be.
The first-place trio will stay in the beautiful oasis-- luxurious! You're never gonna want to leave.
I love it.
The second- through fourth-place trios-- you guys are gonna be staying in your cozy cabins.
No big whoop.
Fifth- and sixth-place trios, you guys are gonna be staying in some very rugged conditions.
Oh, God.
Oh, no.
And our last-place trio? I can't even describe it.
I mean, I don't even have-- vile.
If you don't die, I'll be really surprised.
This girl from Arkansas has never been camping before.
So after hearing about the accoodations, you got it?Got it?Got? This girl from Arkansas has never been camping before.
Whoo! We got it.
All right, you guys.
You're gonna change into your adventure clothes, and let's get this adventure started! Yay! Here we go.
Well, you guys look cute in your little adventure gear.
Mike wore that hat.
Uh, it kinda was a dopey-looking hat to me.
But he's kind of a-a dopey-looking guy.
The hat fit him well.
The legend behind the conch shell says it calls to those who seek true love.
Obviously, mine's broken.
So what you're gonna need to do on this adventure is collect three of these conch shells.
What you're gonna need to complete the journey are some supplies, including a map.
Don't worry.
The supplies are put in a very safe place.
Oh! Look! Here they are now.
Oh, my God! In comes the chopper, uh, flying overhead.
Whoo! Okay, everything that you guys need to complete this journey is in those bags.
But only one person from your trio can swim out there and go get it.
The rest of you have to stay behind.
It's time to decide who is gonna go swimming.
Can you handle it? You got this? What makes you think you can do it, though? I am swam in college.
Swimming was kind of my forte, and I was confident I would be first out of the water.
I think, in the beginning, girls always have to take control.
All right.
Even though I'm a lifeguard, swim and surf instructor, when Ken stepped up to take that first challenge, I let him go.
I-I knew the bigger picture.
I needed to sit on that beach and get to know yanina.
When I say go, you're gonna start swimming.
And don't worry, I only counted about 15 sharks.
Go! Eee! Right here, right here, right here! You gotta wait! Go, go! Get it, chase! Come on, Ken! Here you go, buddy! Come on, Christian! Once I got out there and I looked up and I saw those bags were way, way, way out there, I realized, man, I am in trouble.
That's pretty far out there.
Holy .
Next Oh, my God.
My biggest fears are small, confined spaces, and snakes--that's it.
That's it.
That's all I ask, is for none of that! Come on! And coming up Mike was getting after it.
This guy--already off the bags, getting her attention.
I don't know what I'm gonna do.
Later all right, well, it's time to make your decision.
Is it going to be Jason e.
Or chase? Oh, my God.
You got it, summer! We had to swim out to the packs after they were dropped from the helicopter.
Summer volunteered to swim, and I couldn't have been happier.
We can take a nap if we want.
We didn't have to think about summer at all.
Within a minute, she was, you know, five, six lengths ahead of every other person.
Q and I had to flirt with each other while summer was out in the ocean.
Play football, baseball? I played, uh, football in college.
I like it.
That's all right.
Come on, Ken! Once I got past the guys, I was second place, right behind summer.
It was a real long swim, and I knew that one way that I our team in to win the adventure.
Nina I, and she's smokin' hot.
Oh, God! Why didn't we put you there? I let him swim so I could hang out with you.
Ah! It was pretty funny.
I gave him points for that.
Hurry! Come on, Leo, you're getting beat by a girl! Here we go, Leo! She'll reward you with a breast stroke later! My track record for being faithful in relationships-- not so good.
I've been called a womanizer.
You know, call it what you will, but I just don't think I've met the right girl.
You know, there's a lot of girls out there, and there's only one of me.
Almost there, man! You got this! Come on.
Come on, let's go, buddy! I'm like, "ah, so where you from from?" And he's like, "Miami.
Let's go, Ben!" Let's go.
Come on, buddy.
Let's go! If you want to get to know me, take the five minutes to do that.
Let's go, chase! I was too excited.
I ran in the water real quick, and I forgot that I had pants, shoes on.
I had cargo pockets.
Everything was weighing me down.
I need to step it up.
I want to make sure I make the right impression to cina.
I want to just go swim out there and help him.
You can do this.
I went through hard times, I lived in horrible conditions.
This situation does not scare me.
Come on, you got it.
The tough part is gonna be the swim back.
Come on, Ken, let's go! Oh, he's going far.
Oh, yeah.
Ken is doing amazing.
He was kicking ass.
I was like, "well, that's my guy.
" Come on, Ken, let's go! Whoo-hoo! Come on! You got it, summer! Come on, summer! Yeah! Good job! Jenny mentioned something about a map, and I knew I was gonna step forward and take that challenge.
I wanted to be the team leader.
"Now that you are reunited as a trio, "grab your bag and head west down the beach.
"Follow the marked trail to an old well.
"At the well, you must lower the female member of your trio "feet first into the well to retrieve your first conch shell.
" That's right.
Ready? Okay.
Okay, guys.
That's all right.
Go, Leo! Good job, buddy! All right, whoo! Good work.
Man, that swim was so incredibly hard.
I was absolutely about to keel over.
Let's go, Christian! Let's go.
Come on.
I'm pretty competitive.
Ryan and Christian better be ready to keep up with me.
Okay, I got the map.
Let's go! Okay, give me the water! Let's go! Come on! Come on! "Follow the marked trail to an old well.
" You just start thinking about that well.
I see another team.
They're catching up a little bit.
When Mike, yanina, and I approached the well, we didn't really know what to expect.
Right up there.
Oh, my God! Oh, oh, there are snakes in there! Ohh! Under the arm-- under the--'kay, 'kay, 'kay! I needed to find that shell under the sand And I didn't know exactly where they were and how deep.
Good work.
We got to the well, and I heard a girl screaming in there, so I'm like, "this cannot be good.
" You're okay.
But I didn't want to be, like, the girl in there that was screaming, so I sucked it up.
Let's go.
Go away.
You're okay, you're okay.
Go away! Right there, right there.
Right in front of you.
He keeps coming back! Dig! Dig, dig, dig! To your left.
The two guys were yelling, "over there, over there, over there, do this, do that!" Right to your left, right to your left.
Check that pile.
I couldn't channel one thought.
It's under there.
Just gotta dig.
Yeah? Stay in one area, though, summer.
Summer felt-- she looked up at us and whispers, "I think I have one.
" Here we go.
Come on.
Come on.
I really like a woman who's ambitious, and summer was a badass.
I was--I was really impressed with her desire to win.
We were definitely in first place.
Good job.
Summer was very sexy.
Got it? Yes.
There you go! All right! Whoo! Chase--he didn't get us off to a good start.
It made me look good without doing anything.
I wanted to, uh, give him a high-five, like, "thanks, buddy.
" Good job, Jason! Good job, buddy! I think Jason was next to death by the time he got back to shore.
What would have been sexy is to find the swimmer in the group.
But nothing was sexy at this point.
Are you okay to walk? I was just like, man, like I really, really blew this one.
I'm supposed to be making this great impression on her, and now we're in last.
Come on, Jason.
All right, we're here.
We're at the well.
I was thinking that if we get to a well, and there's water in it, this is going to be a fun, like, water party.
You know, I'll be able to jump in, splash around, have a good time.
But I didn't see any water.
Oh, my God.
As soon as we walked up to this well, I literally had a heart attack.
Oh, my God, are they seriously gonna attack me? No, they're not gonna sting you.
There is no way they're going to lower me down into this well because I'm not cool with that.
Oh, my God.
We have to lower Tara into this snake pit, and she's squeamish Okay oh, my God, this is like one of my biggest fears.
Which I think is frickin' ridiculous.
I mean, are you afraid that your nails are gonna break or something like that? Get in there with the snakes! Get in that snake pit.
Oh, my God! Wait.
Oh, my God, he's, like, gonna come up my leg.
Do not drop me.
I got you.
Oh, my God, you guys.
We got you.
Oh, my God! Just reach in there.
Where is--where is-- just reach into the-- you gotta reach into the sand.
My biggest fears are small, confined spaces, and snakes--that's it.
That's it.
That's all I ask, is for none of that! Do you see anything? There were snakes buried, more snakes.
You'd think that there'd be enough snakes.
There's more than you think.
You gotta--you gotta-- I don't--do you see one? Do you see one? Ahh! What? What? I can't! I don't even see it! Pull it out! Yes! Yes! Go! Climb up here! Give me your hand! Get going! Come on! I was out of there in, like, ten seconds.
Okay! You got it! We have now passed a team because I got out of that well so fast good job.
So now we're looking for the coconut throw.
Next station was the mask and throwing coconuts at it.
There was a stack of coconuts on the left, and a mask hanging from two poles.
Only the guys are supposed to throw the coconuts.
Right there.
First one.
Here's one, here's one.
The second map was inside of the mask.
Come on, guys.
This is--this-- ohh! You know, it's me and Jesse against each other.
We're trying to fight over summer.
And I wasn't really too worried, 'cause I'm definitely a strong, manly man.
Come on, guys.
But those coconuts were pretty damn heavy.
Ohh! So close.
You guys owe me breaking them.
Whoo! Ohh! I was very happy that I was the one responsible for knocking down the map.
Let's read it over here.
I need summer to like me better than this guy.
I felt like I was the Alpha male in the group.
"Before you can continue on your journey, "decide which man is most responsible "for making the map fall to the ground.
The female must kiss the man on the lips" That's you.
"For five seconds.
This must be recorded on your pocket camera by the other male member.
" Being that I knocked down the mask, I got to kiss her.
I'm sure q wasn't too happy, but it's teamwork, right? Five seconds.
What really sucked was having to film them kissing.
Five Seven seconds.
All right, here we go.
But I knew that I would get my opportunity at some point.
Go, go, go! Ahh! Get there! Oh, yeah! Yes! Mike did a great job.
When somebody throws coconuts that well, it's a turn-on.
And I was impressed.
Come here.
One, two It was weird, because it almost looked like two cousins kissing.
Like, there was no passion there.
It was gross.
Boom! Nice! All right, you gotta take your five-second kiss.
One The Tim-meister came with his-- with his game.
I just gave this girl the best five seconds of her life.
Tim was okay.
I mean, I've had better.
And the kiss was so salty.
You've gotta be kidding me.
I noticed that there was a map laying on the ground.
Immediately in my mind, I'm like, "ha ha.
You left your map.
" You got the map, right? There's no map! Okay.
We have to turn around and we have to go all the way back for this stupid map that Ryan left.
This is not okay! Let's go! Ahh.
This situation is-- is super awkward.
I mean, I'm making an ass of myself, but we had to do what we had to do.
It's okay.
It's okay.
I hate this! I hate this! I hate this! Oh, my God! Look in the sand! You gotta dig, you gotta dig! Ohh! Found it.
Okay, come on.
I got you.
I got you.
We're gonna do fine.
All right.
Good girl.
Good girl.
Excellent leg.
Well done.
Let's do this.
That middle-- no, no, that middle stump.
Ohh! Oh! I was a rock star with those snakes.
You were brilliant.
Well done.
Jenny seems very strong-minded and determined.
Want me to hold it? No, everything's cool.
She's a great girl.
I'm enjoying her company.
Oh, that's far.
Ohh! Franky says, "oh, I played football.
This--this will be fine.
" Ohh! 47 coconuts later, they're still struggling.
Whoo! Judging by what I saw, he just played football via a video game.
Oh, my word! Under any athletic competition, a girl's watching, you know, you want to be that stud tom bray coconut thrower, but, you know, at that point, I was waiting for her sympathy.
Go for the map! It's right here! Let's go.
Go, go! I've got the map.
Come on, guys, we're losing a lot of time here.
I think we're doing okay.
We need to do better.
Shauna is kinda driving me a little crazy.
You got this.
You guys gotta aim higher.
This is easy.
Easy, easy.
I was ready to get out there and just start having fun and mingling with some other people.
Go yeah.
Here we go.
Ali going in there, just jumping in-- that was absolutely hot to me.
She just got right in and started looking for the conchs.
We get going, but we were in, um, how you say? Dead last.
This trail looks fresh.
We might be first.
I don't know.
These adventures are more an action-based communication than a verbal-based communication, because we don't have time to talk to one each other.
I'm stoked right now.
I think we're in first place.
Because of that, I think that it's the actions that show a person's personality and true colors.
That's a good thing.
We gotta get to that boat.
The second map said we had to go back to the beach and retrieve the second shell from the bottom of the ocean.
We had to bring the boat to the dive point.
You start pushing, you start pushing.
We're gonna start moving these logs.
They're all wooden rollers, and we had a bucket.
Come on.
Let's carry it.
It's not that far.
Q and I were very happy to have the most athletic girl in the group.
Thattagirl, summer.
Keep going, keep going.
You gotta jump out first.
You gotta get that bag off, too, q.
Hold on, hold on, hold on.
Slow, slow, slow, slow.
We need to get the log, no? Try to keep the logs underneath it.
There we go.
Let's get it underneath.
I was still very confident that we could overtake summer and her team.
Push it out.
Come on! Go, go, go, go! Come on! We're 15 seconds in, and waves are coming into the boat, so we were almost up to our knees in water.
And sinking fast, so I grabbed the bucket and I started bailing.
I'm rowing, Jesse's trying to get the water out, and the boat just starts sinking.
I saw the other team pushing the boat further into the water, and ours was already gone-- it was under.
Both the guys were having a little trouble.
I was praying that we would all make it back, all three of us, because at this point, we're screwed.
Coming up Leo was prancing around in the pool in his little undies.
I mean, seriously? Who does that? Oh, no! Both q and I were struggling.
I think it was pretty obvious at that point.
Come on.
You're all right.
Initially, the plan was for me to dive down and get the next shell.
Give me the mask.
Hold that.
I can't really do it, and I'm like, "you know what, summer? Go for it.
" I got your shoes.
At that point, I was kinda like, my back is really hurting now, because I've been carrying both of you.
I could have done this whole mission myself.
Ahh, we're sinking! Honestly, ditching the boat was the best thing we could have done.
Ken grabbed the second shell, and I was towing yanina into shore.
Oh, my God! Oh, my God! Tara was tired.
She was complaining about being dirty.
"Ew, I can't stand this boat.
" She kept moving.
Oh, my God, my arms hurt.
I-I can't stop laughing! That was sexy to me, the fact that I know she's a princess, and I know she doesn't like these sorts of things, but she did it.
Aah! That turns me on, a girl who can, you know, keep pushin' when the pushin' needs, you know.
Okay, let's go.
Take your time.
Got it.
Ohh! Yeah! Shut up! When I saw Jason throwing the coconuts, I was like, "dang, who's he?" You know, and then when chase stepped up and went in in the middle of the ocean, it's like, "all right, I'm diggin' chase.
" So, really, at this point, I don't know who I like.
Get this over with.
I feel like I'm like some exotic animal And everybody wants me.
Oh, man! That's okay.
You got it.
Yes! Yes! Finally.
Franky said he'd played football, and he couldn't throw the coconut to save his life.
So at this point, we had no idea what place we were in, but it couldn't have been good.
Good? Hold on, hold on, hold on.
How does that record again? There we go.
You're killing me.
I mean, not really.
At least Ben's a good kisser.
And the best part was that franky couldn't figure out how to use the camera Hold on.
Uh let me--let-- hold on.
Let me get a video.
Sorry about that.
It was like a nice kiss.
Hold on.
Hold on.
It's video.
And action.
Or three or four.
One more.
It's five seconds.
Or five.
You earned it, Ben.
Let's just keep on kissing.
Come on, let's go.
I want to make sure I make the right impression with cina, so I'm the one who did the first swim and then the second swim.
I'm feeling really good at this point.
Ugh! Come on, you guys! You got-- more to the right, more to the left.
Shauna--she started whining like crazy.
I can't do it! Well, let's figure it out.
We're doing all right.
Y'all, don't panic.
Ugh! All I wanted to do was just tune her out and get that boat back to land so that she would shut up.
If Ryan wants to have that girl, she's all his.
God! You got it! Good job, Ben! Take it.
Wait, don't let go yet.
Take it! I can't get it.
Just take it, just take it, just take it.
All right.
In one word, I would describe franky as useless.
No, don't lean to the right, 'cause I'm getting in on the right.
My right.
I'd gladly have a corpse-- anything.
Any inanimate, useless object other than franky back there.
We're not sinking.
You have--no.
Back-- franky, franky, you're making us turn left.
I got it.
I found it.
Jason was able to dive down, and I thought, oh, God, what's the luck right now? Because while I'm good at other things athletically, swimming is not one of them.
It was a little awkward not being able to impress the girl in the way I'd expected to.
For the last station, we came up to these really tall poles, and at the top was the shell, but it was entwined with these vines, so one of them had better bring it and get that third one.
I don't want to get all three.
Hold on.
Gets right next to me and says, "no, I'll do it.
I'll do it.
" And I said no.
I took the--the lead, knowing that that would probably look a little better on me.
Whoo! I was impressed.
Jesse actually shimmied himself up.
I thought that was really attractive, and we had our third shell.
All right.
Good job.
Choose a pole.
Hop up.
Nice work.
Yeah! Here.
Thank you.
Whoo! Come on! You're almost there! Hi, guys.
How was it? That was intense.
She's, like, a 14-time olympic champion--summer.
All right.
Well, do you guys have something to show me? Yes.
We do.
Here's one.
Here's two.
The third one.
Great job.
So it's my turn to kiss summer, too.
Oh! Mm.
Unfortunately, everyone's gonna be really mad at you, 'cause you came in first! Whoo! You did an amazing job.
Whoo-hoo-hoo! So you'll be staying in the luxurious oasis, which is beautiful.
So have a great time tonight.
You deserve it.
Thank you.
Thank you.
Get outta here.
Whoo! Yeah! Come on! Let's go! I love it! Great job! You guys came in second place, which isn't too bad.
That's not bad.
Not too shabby.
All right.
You guys will be staying inside the cabin, so have a great night.
And take your conchs with you.
Thank you.
Yeah! Oh, my God.
Let's go, you tree hugger.
Leo gets the conch unhooked, and being the, uh, the-- the he-man that he has to be, he decides to hold on to the conch and slide down the bark of a tree.
He's bleeding, so immediately what does he do? He takes his blood and he war-paints himself.
Uh, real intelligent, buddy.
Hurry! Um, oh, my God, Leo, what happened to your face? Oh, it's game time, baby.
You know how it goes.
A little blood, sweat never hurt anybody.
Well, you're gonna be staying in the cabins.
You came in third place.
Oh, okay.
Great job, you guys.
Thanks, Jenny.
Thank you.
Okay, there's a rope around the bottom, so Oh, my God.
We got this.
Yeah, you're like a little fricking spider monkey.
You got this, buddy.
You got this.
Look at you.
Yeah, buddy.
Grab it.
Yeah, you did it! Okay, this way, you guys.
This way.
You're good.
We got this.
Watch out.
Watch out.
Watch out.
You got it? Yeah, I'm good.
All right.
Let's move.
Cina! Chase! Jason! Come on! Wow! Uh-oh, look who's coming up behind you.
All right, do you wanna know what place you came in? Yes.
Fourth! Not too bad.
Have a great evening and enjoy the cabins.
Thanks, Jenny.
Thank you.
Christian, Ryan, step on up.
You guys locrazy exhausted.
Remember I told you the better you placed, the better your accommodations? The fifth and sixth place has to stay in very rugged conditions.
That's you.
You guys came in fifth place.
I do not want to live in pain and agony.
There was a lot of disappointment.
I don't want to live like that.
Get out of here, you guys.
Have fun.
Good job.
Come on, Jenny, Ben, Frank! You're this much closer to a shower! You came in sixth place.
No surprise there.
Not last.
It's fine.
Well, you guys will still be staying in some very rugged conditions.
Have a good night.
Thank you.
Thanks, Jenny.
Come on! Are we first? Yeah.
You came in last.
So you will be staying in the worst conditions.
It is gonna be a rough night, you guys.
I am so glad I'm not you.
I'm not looking forward to this.
I just want to go to bed and just pretend like this-- this day didn't happen.
I'll find out more details later about who was the weakest link.
Neither one of these guys are really impressing me.
It's pretty sad whenever I think I can do better.
Coming up I don't think I can do this.
I'm so far beyond my comfort zone.
An act of God would be the only thing that would cause me to stay at this point.
And later we have our seven unmatched men who will be going home.
Or will they? Wow.
That is sick.
That is freaking awesome.
This entire place is ours.
This is ridiculous.
What? Wow.
When we came to the oasis, it didn't even look real.
It was so gorgeous.
It was probably the most beautiful place I've ever seen.
This is actually almost as good as my house in L.
This is so sick.
Oh, man.
I had never seen such a spectacular home before.
Oh, there's food over here.
We hade a personal chef.
We had a personal bartender, too, so we were able to order any drink we want.
Aah! We were popping bottles.
You know, that's what you do when you're winning.
You pop bottles.
Cheers, guys.
Here's to the oasis.
I know.
To a wonderful first adventure.
Many nights in the oasis.
Many nights.
I kind of want to explore a little bit, though.
We took a tour of the house.
Oh, my God.
Check out this bed.
One of the first things that stood out to me was that there was only one bed and three people.
I knew at some point, a decision was gonna have to be made, but I just didn't feel like making it yet.
It's a his, hers, and his bath.
The oasis is a perfect place to be with someone who you really want to spend some romantic time.
It wasn't the perfect place to have two dudes and a girl.
Oh, nice.
Wow! Check out the pool! Oh, sick! Yeah! Aw.
How cute.
When we first saw the cabins, I'm thinking, wow.
This is amazing.
And here I am, hopefully getting to know this pretty girl standing next to me.
That's us.
Ken, here we are.
Check us out! Tada! Hello? Oh, ho ho! Oh, one bed.
Of course.
The single bed.
This thing? I don't know.
There's one bed for the three of us.
I've never slept in a bed with a gorgeous woman and some random guy.
Not cool.
Uh All right.
Let's get this party started.
Nice decor.
I think sleeping in a bed with a perfect stranger is great.
You're gonna find out real quick what kind of pillow talk they got, and bodies have that sort of magnetic ability to kind of attract each other or repel each other.
And there we go.
Found it.
Time to turn it up, boys! Oh, boy.
Ryan, shauna oh! Here we go.
I get there and I'm sleeping in a tent.
I'm glad you guys are okay with this.
I'm taking my shoes off before I go in that joint.
I was just more concerned with--with shauna and then having this guy who I don't know sleeping right next to me.
Does he roll? Does he talk in his sleep? I don't know.
There's a spider! Already! Where? Damn! I don't want to sleep with him.
Oh, wow.
Go check it out.
All right.
I mean, like, the accommodations aren't bad.
I mean, like, it looks like a comfortable pillow.
Are we in the hut? There we are.
We have sleeping bags.
Are you kidding me? Oh.
Seeing what we get to sleep in-- we're, like, out in the open.
We don't even have, like, walls.
We have a hellhole.
Oh, my God.
Really? Yeah, this is us.
You might not get your hot water.
Really? Oh, we've got a net.
Seriously? Oh, my God! We just want to, you know, forget about today, and to make it worse, people are coming up and, like, just laughing and making fun of our situation.
And it was like, you know what? That's just insult to injury.
That's just truly disrespectful.
This is awesome! I-I could-- you get a nice fresh breeze blowing in.
One with nature.
This is the hot sack right here.
This is what we live for.
Yeah, this reminds me of, like, girl scout camp, and I, like, quit after, like, a week.
It's like, yeah, it's cool, funny, ha ha, but reality is, we have to sleep out here.
This is way too cramped and I'm not even claustrophobic.
Can you grab that bag, please? Yeah? Yeah.
So I'm sitting there talking to Ali, and I just see she's just not happy.
I'm just having anxiety about this, and I don't have anxiety.
I mean, yeah, definitely, I can see it on you, but you're building it up, you know? No.
I feel like you're convincing yourself to not do it.
I can't do this.
Uh, it's fine--me saying it-- when I'm sitting out here, but when I'm in there, I can't do this.
I'm so far beyond my comfort zone that an act of God would be the only thing that would cause me to stay at this point.
I don't think I can do this.
It's okay.
At this point, Ali has just about completely shut down, and she's almost literally at the point of having, like, a panic attack.
I'm just trying to make Ali feel okay, and it's just not working.
This is too cramped.
I can't do this.
I can't do this.
You know, I'll say tough it out, 'cause I mean, this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you really can have.
So I'm sitting there, talking to Ali, and, like, was just trying to be as caring as I possibly could.
I've never been camping before.
This is extreme.
So check-- check the bucket list.
For real.
Maybe this might be the best time for her and I to maybe have a little more connection.
At least you got your first cry out.
So you know, it's done.
It's out the way.
Jason generally helped me through my--my first day freak-out.
There we go.
He's just, like, that great of a guy because he had a general interest in making sure that I was all right mentally.
There is a point that, like, I didn't even realize my other partner, Darwin, was still here.
So I'm thinking at least I can refresh in the bathroom.
The vanity, with poor lighting and outside, is in the old-style manner of a ladle and a bucket of cold water to wash your face.
I might be still at that breaking point where I'm just gonna say, okay, I'm done.
So I think everyone's walking on eggshells around Ali, because she's liable to explode.
I'm gonna take a shower.
Good idea.
With cina, I really don't know what my strategy is, if I'm gonna lay back or go attack, you know, it's chess, not checkers.
You want the shutters down? They close from the outside.
Seriously? You're good.
The last thing on my mind is that I would go home in the first round.
Although my ex broke up with me before I went to Iraq, I'm definitely out to, uh, put my heart on the line.
They're gonna eliminate seven, so that's a lot to think about.
Thank you so much.
I don't know what this is called, but it looks like an omelet.
Who ever has a personal chef? Delicious.
This is really good.
I wasn't looking forward to having another guy there.
You know, I'm not really into sword fighting.
Do you guys want to go to the cabins and see what everyone else is doing, since we haven't really officially met them yet? I wanted to, you know, check out the other guys, see what else is out there.
Cabins it is.
Aah! Cheers.
Whoo! We get to the cabins, and it felt like the-- the party had arrived.
Pool party! I definitely want to go mingle and talk to everyone else and, you know, flirt a little bit.
It's been a little uncomfortable having 14 guys around with 7 girls.
The testosterone is bubbling over.
Ryan, nice to meet you.
It's a meat market out there, and there's a lot of fellows trying really hard, a bit too hard.
Oh, my God.
What? Hey, Ken.
What--what is that? Whoa! Yay! So my partner Leo was prancing around in the pool in his little undies.
I mean, seriously, who does that? Yeah, lit a fire under.
I don't think he's really boyfriend material at all.
I hope he gets sent home.
Teach me how to swim, Michael.
Teach you how to swim? My partner, Mike, was really stepping his game and he was being very entertaining.
Everything comes in and forward.
It was good to have the attention from Mike.
He was trying to make me laugh, too, so I enjoyed his company.
Over here? Aah! Mike was getting after it.
I'm like, all right, great.
This guy, already off the bat, he's getting her attention.
I didn't know what I was gonna do.
I'm a confident guy, so I felt like, hey, we gotta really hit the ground running on this one.
I'm trying-- we've got an overload of sausage.
They're like gnats flying around, just in my way, and you don't get in the Tim-meister's way when I'm working my "a" game.
I don't keep the--oh, I'm just like everybody else.
How are you? I was just kind of checking out the other guys.
Um, I was--definitely had an eye out for Tim.
He was already taken by another girl, but I just kind of wanted to see if he was somebody that even though he was good-looking, that I liked as a person.
I learned that it's not called the windy city because it's windy.
It's because of politics.
I-I think it's both, though.
It's very windy.
You do? On the adventure, summer took on the swimming challenge against all these other dudes.
Athleticism in a girl? It's pretty hot.
Q, you're, like, totally my-- one of my faves now.
You didn't even pick me.
I don't know what you're talking about.
Look, dude There was definitely some flirting going on between myself and Tara, a little bit with cina.
It was a bummer when we had to go back to the oasis.
I kind of wanted to bring everybody back with us and have a crazy house party.
Have a good night.
You, too.
Take care.
All right.
We gotta figure out the sleeping situation.
You get the bed.
Thank you.
Q, where would you like to sleep? In the bed.
Uh, what's your second choice? I wasn't stoked on either one of them sleeping in the bed with me.
I also didn't want to be rude, so I kind of left it up to the boys to decide.
How about we both be gentlemen and let her sleep in the bed by herself? What do you think? I think I'm gonna sleep in the bed.
All right.
Peace out.
Catch you in the morning.
It's a big bed, bro.
There's plenty of room.
I'll be right here.
You're over there.
This is one bed, two guys, one girl.
I, uh, took one of the recliner chairs outside and I laid it down on the side of the bed so she'd at least have a good night's sleep.
Just promise me you'll be on this side.
I am on this side.
Jason was not quite the gentleman.
It was "no, I'm sleeping in the bed.
" All right, time for bed.
If I were to choose between the two, I'm definitely thinking about chase because he's more considerate than Jason.
Good night, everyone.
Seriously? No, I'm saying-- um, how about, like, you two sleep on that little thing and I'm gonna sleep on the bed? What? Leo might've had that, you know, crush on me, oh, you know, this, you know, fab girl picks me, but sadly, no matter what he could've done, it wasn't gonna happen.
You can sleep in the middle.
I think there's a good possibility Tara might pick me.
I think she likes muscles.
Aah! You know, I'm good-looking.
I'm successful.
Good a shot as anybody.
So the three of us end up in bed together, and I end up in the middle.
And I honestly could not take it.
Here we go.
All right.
Whose leg is that? It's really smooth.
Mike was getting a little touchy-touchy, and I thought maybe that's what he's used to.
Go away.
Go away.
I'm not--I'm not trying to.
I was like, okay.
I had to listen to Mike constantly trying to kind of get in closer to yanina.
I had one of the worst night's sleeps I've ever had.
The first night, it was just like a constant onslaught of mosquitoes, and I just was like, this is ridiculous.
I'm bent beyond my comfort zone.
I'm broken down, and I just want to ignore everyone.
Oh, God.
This is gonna suck.
Our wake-up call in the morning was the rain that poured on our bottom half of our bodies.
I was miserable, and I just wanted to get out of here.
Completely saturated.
What are you trying to wear? 'Cause then you can lay that at the highest to dry out the most.
I hadn't even put that much thought into it.
I will say that it speaks kudos for Jason-- the fact that, like, he was over here trying to rectify the situation, 'cause I was very close to calling it quits.
So I mean, if I had to make a decision right now, and I only had the two guys to choose from, Jason would--would be staying.
Oh, really? Really? This completely blows, like, beyond what I expected.
Franky's snoring sounds like a motorcycle trying to get up a hill.
But it just can't quite get there.
I didn't sleep because of your bear snore.
Me, too.
We were up all night pretty much.
Thank you.
Very loud.
I didn't.
You didn't? Oh.
Jesse wants to sleep in the ceramic tub, I'm-a let him do that.
I'm gonna take the warm, soft, cuddly bed with the warm, soft, cuddly woman.
Since we won first place in the adventure, it was reward day.
We pulled up and saw this awesome band, and I knew we were gonna do something with dancing, so I was kinda freaked out 'cause I'm not that good of a dancer.
Hello, guys.
My name is Antonio.
Mm, I don't you need outfits.
Yes, yes.
Go change, and we come back.
All right.
Sounds good.
Thank you.
This looks pretty good.
The tight green t-shirt on two boys is always good.
I mean, it was for the part, so at least they had the balls to put 'em on.
Your salsa lesson is very easy.
You're gonna move the hip.
And contract.
Do this.
Any time you can get close to a beautiful woman, touch her a little bit, there's nothing wrong with that.
Summer--she's just a natural.
She's amazing.
It's beyond awkward to have a third party on our date.
But you know what? I know who's gonna come out on top in the end of this one.
There were a few times that I had to cut in.
I knew summer wanted me to come in and rescue her.
Jesse and I clicked.
I do think that there's something there.
Give me a kiss.
Oh! She said, "kiss me now.
" She wanted me to kiss her in front of q.
That's a bit of a signal, if you will.
Maybe she has a little bit more of a connection with Jesse, which is okay with me.
There are six other girls, and I think there's gonna be something I can work there.
Hey! Oh! So what are you guys up to today? You're looking at it.
Just chillin'.
Oh, there she is.
Hi, kids.
How was your night last night? It was the best ever.
All right.
All right, now for the reason why I'm here.
Boys listen up.
I can't express enough how important it is to woo the women.
They hold all the power right now.
Well, we always hold the power.
Yeah, of course we do.
But right now they really do, because as I already told you, the first couples' choice ceremony, none of them are going home, and seven of you dudes are.
But what you don't know is that our first place winner summer Gets to have her choice of any guy here.
You like that, huh, summer? It was kind of a huge shock to me, and so now I have this decision to make.
Either choose to keep one of the two guys that I've been spending the past two days with or totally put myself out there for another guy that I really don't know that well.
For the rest of you, the way the couples' choice ceremony goes down may surprise you.
Guys, you need to be prepared fanything.
So I highly suggest that you really kinda get to know everybody.
Mingle about the cabin, if you will.
All right? Enjoy yourselves, and I'll see ya At the couples' choice ceremony.
Bye! I'm actually not sure what yanina is going to do.
Maybe yanina's just gonna fall for Ken.
I don't know what's gonna happen.
I-I have no idea.
I definitely felt a lot of pressure hearing that half the guys are going home, because here we have chase, and he's a sweetheart.
He's a gentleman.
He knows how to treat a girl.
Or we have Jason over here.
Things are a little bit more mysterious.
I was curious to what his motives were.
I have no idea what I'm gonna do at this point.
I'm nervous.
I'm nervous.
I don't know what to think.
These girls have a lot of decisions to make.
And then Shauna--I saw her doing yoga on the lawn outside of our tent.
I'm the most unflexible person that has ever probably walked the face of the earth.
That's like an advanced move, I feel like, right? No.
No? I love the fact that Ryan took an interest in me.
I definitely want to explore that.
I wanna get to know Ryan a little bit more.
I don't wanna get to know Christian a little bit more.
What about dancing? Do you dance? Yeah! Yeah? Oh, my God.
One of the cool things about realizing that shauna was not really right for me was that I got to just go, you know what? Screw it.
Tara's kind of an interesting girl.
She's somebody that, you know, if given the choice, if I had to stay in the game with her, I would definitely do so.
You live in Miami, so what I'm thinking is salsa, merengue, you know, stuff like that.
Can--can-- I'm dancing to, like, techno music and dance music.
All right.
Christian is definitely a character.
He has that kind of bizarre humor.
I did one time swallow a goldfish.
But that was only because I had to as part of a rugby thing.
You know, he seemed like a nice guy, but I'm not into that.
They say that the average person by the time they die has consumed over 18 pounds worth of dirt.
That's the word on the street, anyway.
All righty, man.
We'll see you in a little bit.
Yeah, yeah, for sure.
So finally I was able to have some alone time with yanina.
He and I are just We're different in our approach to women.
There's a big difference between Mike and I.
He never gives her a moment's rest.
Yanina's the kind of girl-- she's not gonna move too fast with a guy like Mike.
She's a classy girl.
Mike's not up to her standards.
What I brought is a photo album.
It's important to me to give back to the community.
And one way I do that is through volunteering with the Miami-dade animal shelter as a puppy foster parent, so Ah, this was seven years ago.
Oh, my God.
You're so cute! Ken--he foster-parents puppies.
It's a turn-on.
We got even closer after that, you know, sharing this moment with me.
Well, I take 'em back to the shelter, and, yeah, they get adopted.
I take a lot of pride in things like volunteering.
It's a very personal part of my life, and I think she was impressed.
It's starting to rain a little bit.
Are you okay with that with your hair? Do you see that rainbow? I do see the rainbow.
I have wow.
That is amazing.
Thank you.
I definitely-- so may I have a kiss on the cheek? Yes.
I didn't get my 5-second kiss the other day.
I know.
You gave it to Mike.
I was very disappointed.
Well, you can get one now if you want.
Oh, do I get a small kiss? We exchanged a kiss.
Thank you.
You're welcome.
Thanks for sharing.
And, uh, I think on a scale of one to ten, it was a ten.
Oh, look, a rainbow.
Ah! It's magical.
How tropical.
Getting to know Ben has been just like an all-out laugh party.
He's hysterical.
He's sarcastic, and I'm really sarcastic, too.
So we just banter back and forth.
There's one above it.
It's a total double rainbow all the way across the sky.
No, it's not.
That's the same one you found.
No, it's not.
It's one.
It is not.
It just fades there.
I think Jenny's brilliant.
She's such a lovely girl.
Jen is, uh, not my-- my type generally.
But there's something about her.
We're getting along great.
We're working well together, and now we've got to see if there's anything else.
Double rainbow! All right.
Seven of us guys are going home.
My mind's spinning.
I'm thinking, what do I need to do to make sure that's not me? I really haven't connected with anyone else, like, you know, like how me and you kinda hit it off.
Now you're not just, like, doing this 'cause I chose you.
Oh, definitely not.
Definitely not.
Oh, okay.
I definitely had to step it up.
I got to kinda woo my girl over a little bit.
Um, I think in this short time that we have a lot of fun.
It's just we click.
You know, like, what-- how are you feeling after, you know, what I'm saying? It's like all of a sudden during this date, all of these things are coming out.
He's telling me how he feels, and I'm just like, why couldn't he have been talking to me more about this? Well, I'm glad that you laid it all out there, because, honestly, I felt like you were very iffy, and this kind of, like, kind of clears it up a little bit.
Like, okay.
I thought we had a great date, but ultimately, she has the power to make a choice.
Cheers to, you know cheers! Cheers to the future.
Jason over here-- he showed me that he's ready to do this together, and chase--he's a sweetheart.
He's a gentleman, and I just don't know what to do.
All right, so here's the deal.
I feel like you haven't really like you know, put a lot of effort in.
So you gotta--you gotta let me understand that.
So you think you're doing more work than I am.
If you're interested in our roommate, how come I feel like I'm doing more as far as, like, getting to know her, that's all.
Man, you are, without a doubt, one of the hardest-working guys I've ever seen On a social circuit.
Mike's been driving me up the wall just because he's been focused on yanina.
As far as I'm concerned, he's on his own.
You're getting nervous about it.
I'm quietly confident that I'm gonna be sticking around for a little while.
I'm actually looking forward to having seven men cut.
I don't think I'm going home.
Some of these guys definitely need to get out.
Leo--in the mornings, he's annoying, 'cause he wakes me up.
Ah, this is the life.
It's my alarm clock along with franky's snoring.
And, uh, my tent is next to the swimming pool.
And he's grunting.
It's--it's like over the top.
Ooh! Crap.
Last night was miserable.
I mean, how are you supposed to find romance whenever you're like fish bait to mosquitoes? I just want to go home at this point still.
Good morning, Ali.
No, you look amazing.
I just need to decide for myself whether I'm strong enough to stay in this situation 'cause I'm so broken down, and I just wanna ignore everyone.
That looks really difficult.
No, it's not, 'cause then you can, like, push off and I was a gymnast my whole life.
So Ben--he wanted me to teach him some gymnastics.
I'm scared.
Just try it once.
Aah! When it comes to dating people, I kinda go for guys who are the typical douchebag guys, so I shouldn't expect them to be down to earth or have a great personality.
That was one.
But with Ben, I think, like, this guy's awesome.
I like him a lot.
I'm worried that one of the other girls is gonna steal him from me.
Aah! If you can't do that, how am I expected to to do that? Nice.
No, I just--you-- yeah, you look like you're about to flip right now.
This is like the edge for you.
But Ali--she's a beautiful girl, but she just doesn't seem to be having a good time right now in the lean-to.
I trained with a co-ed unit in the marine corps, and so I know how to work with girls.
I do wanna get to kn Ali a little bit more, so hopefully, if it comes push to shove, and I don't get chosen by cina, Ali will be able to open up and choose somebody that she knows is a strong competitor like myself.
Really? You're getting makeup on in the middle of the night.
You know, you're not allowed in the rooms.
I know.
You know, chase has got a really great personality.
He's a very attractive guy.
I'm so looking forward to getting to know him better.
Ken has put all his eggs in one basket with yanina, but I'm not gonna sit around and waste my time, you know? I gotta explore all the other options.
So we are going to walk down to the beach.
We are? Yeah.
The first one that actually caught my eye was shauna.
Holy crap.
I'm gonna cut my hand.
I just--I just know it.
I have two partners-- Christian and Ryan.
But there's a few guys that I have my eye on.
Mike and I--we cut coconuts, and it was-- it was quite delightful.
I'm intrigued by him, and I think he's very, very adorable.
This is--great job.
Great date.
I have to say-- I know it sounds totally corny, but I think I have a lovely bunch of coconuts.
It's really easy between Mike and I.
Really easy.
A lot of fun.
We laughed, and laughing is huge for me.
This is actually probably the funnest time I've had since I've been here.
Well, I'm--I'm flattered.
I think of all the girls here, shauna's the only person that I actually feel it doesn't take any effort to have a conversation with.
Shauna just seems like the kind of person that I can hang out with and not worry about anything.
I don't worry about what I'm saying or what I'm doing.
And honestly, that's the connection I'm looking for.
Well, thank you.
Did you have a good time? I had a great time.
Thank you.
So since we're here, uh, doing so many firsts Firsts.
All kinds of firsts.
I think we should throw in another first.
What's that? Don't make me say it.
I don't know if I'm ready for a first.
A small first.
You have to do more than that there, buddy.
How many coconuts do I have to chop in? Millions.
Millions? All right.
He threw me when he asked me to kiss him.
I just felt uncomfortable.
Something inside me is telling me that maybe he has other interimotives.
I'm in it for the end.
I'm in it for love.
I'm in it for finding the right person.
So what do you think about, uh, if you get the chance to pick me? I felt really confused and lost in what I was going to decide, whether I was gonna choose Ryan or Mike.
This is not a hard decision.
Going in tonight, I have two really good guys-- Jesse on one hand, I am definitely attracted to him.
Tim, who is with Tara, I was completely attracted to from the beginning.
So I don't really know what to do at this point.
I think that cina's, you know, not made up her own mind.
I'm really hoping she picks me, but it's really 50/50 at best.
This would be my favorite.
Which one do y'all like? I'm gonna say this one.
Good answer.
Even though Jason wasn't the strongest swimmer, he helped me through my--my first day jitters.
Okay, so we have option "a.
" What accessories? But I'm not sure if, like, there was a romantic spark there.
I like the other shoes.
Problem solved.
I really have a good time with Ali.
If she does pick me, I think we can make it through basically anything here.
Ryan is a very sweet gentleman, and at this point, Mike is with yanina, but there's definitely a little bit of a spark there between us.
So I definitely need to explore that situation if I had the chance.
Welcome to your first couples' choice ceremony.
Please have a seat in the order you finished the adventure.
First in front, last in back.
Looking dashing.
So, boys, any of you worried about going home tonight? Wow.
I like it.
There will be seven men going home tonight.
And here's how this couples' choice ceremony is going to work.
I'll bring you up one trio at a time in the order you finished the adventure.
The ladies will then decide who will be their partner and who will be sent to the unmatched area.
So, girls, you got a tough decision to make.
But I have some good news.
Whichever guy you choose, he cannot deny you.
Relish in the moment.
Now our first place woman has advantage over all you girls.
She can choose any guy she wants, not just these hotties.
See, it pays to come in first, you guys.
Okay, summer, you get to come up first, so bring your boys with ya.
Well, you guys did obviously awesome in the adventure, but, summer, did one guy outperform the other in the adventure? That's a good question.
Jesse outperformed q, but q carried the big backpack the whole time, so it was definitely a team effort.
Now did one outperform the other later on? They're both good kissers.
Really? Yeah.
Okay, summer, because you came in first, you can pick any guy here.
So who is it going to be, summer? Both of these guys are awesome guys.
I think q--he always goes above and beyond for me, and I think Jesse and I formed a really good connection.
But ultimately, for both of these guys, I see there being more of a friendship.
And I'm here for something more than that.
So I think I'm gonna have to switch it up and pick one of the other guys.
Jesse, q, please step over to the unmatched area.
I'm heartbroken.
If she didn't pick me, I figured she was at least gonna pick Jesse.
I mean, that's like Slap both of us.
So who would you like to pick, then? I wanna pick somebody that I haven't had a lot of time with but I did talk to briefly, and, uh, just wanna get to know a little bit more about, so I'm going to pick Tim.
Come on up here, Tim.
All right.
Tim, are you totally surprised right now? You know, I'm happy.
Step on over to the couples' choice area.
You guys are gonna be moving on to the next adventure.
Okay, time for our second place trio.
Got yanina, Ken, and Mike.
Come on up here.
Hi, Jenny.
Hi, girl.
Did you guys find it competitive among you two to try to get quality time with her? Just to get five minutes alone with her-- it is impossible when you're living with this man.
This guy has got game.
Did you get romantic with either of these two guys? One.
It was me.
You said to leave you alone.
I know.
You gave me five minutes.
That's all I needed.
I know! I was gonna say Yeah.
Yanina, because you came in second, you only have your choice of these two, is it going to be "5-minute" Ken? Or is it going to be "I got game" Mike? I didn't say that.
I didn't say that.
With Mike, it's more like brotherly love kind of thing, so I will have to pick my man here, Ken.
I'm glad you said that.
Mike, can you please Mike, can you please step on over to the unmatched area? Ken mm-hmm? Obviously, five minutes worked, so explain.
She's cultured.
She's sophisticated.
She's well-traveled.
She's beautiful.
I think we've got what it takes.
I don't see what could happen in the future that could stop that.
Well, congratulations, you guys.
You guys are moving on to the next adventure.
So please step on over to the couples' area.
All right, time for our third place trio-- can Tara and Leo step on up here? So obviously, you know, you don't have a choice right now, because right.
Tim was stolen from you.
Oh, my God.
I can't believe I'm stuck with him.
I've met a lot of crazy people in my day, but Leo-- you take the cake, so it's gonna be a challenge to get along with him.
Leo, how are you feeling about those words? Me and Tara get along.
I mean, she's not the normal girl I would get with.
She's a little more, uh, materialistic.
So head on over to the couples' area, guys.
You made it.
All right, time for our fourth place trio-- can cina, Jason e.
, and chase come up here? So, chase, let me ask you, do you feel pretty confident that it's going to be you? Jason and I have had a pretty even tit for tat with--with her.
I don't think it's a clear-cut decision.
Jason, would you agree with that? I agree.
Chase is a quality guy.
Um, we're both trying to win her over, and we just do it differently.
I wanna keep both of them.
Like, this is really hard for me to do.
All right, well, it's time to make your decision.
Is it going to be Jason e.
Or Oh, my God.
Chase? So Jason.
All right, chase, can you please step over to the unmatched area? Oh, my God.
I feel so bad.
Chase, are you surprised by this? I'm taken aback by it, but, you know, it was her decision.
What do you think happened? We only got to scratch the surface.
We only got to find out a little bit about each other.
Um, I took a back-off approach, but Jason was the aggressor, and he went after it.
You gotta be pretty happy about this.
Very happy.
Now that that's out of the way, I'm ready to go to the finish line, first place.
Congratulations, you guys.
Thank you.
You're moving on to the next adventure.
Please step over to the couples' choice area.
Okay, it's time for our fifth place trio-- shauna, Christian, and Ryan.
Come on up.
Hello, boys.
Now is this gonna be a hard decision for you? Or did you kind of have a knowing from the get-go? I kinda have a knowing.
And I would love to get to know Ryan more, so Christian.
Yes? Will you please go stand in the unmatched area? Absolutely.
It was a pleasure.
I'm very sorry.
It was a pleasure.
Congratulations, my man.
Thank you.
All right, well, congratulations, you guys.
Please step over to the couples' area.
Time for our sixth place trio-- Jenny, Ben, and franky.
Well, hello, kids.
Hello, Jen.
So both of these guys are amazing.
They're just complete opposites, and, um, opposites did not attract here, 'cause we're complete opposites as well.
Who's it gonna be? I'm gonna go with Ben.
Sorry, buddy.
The snoring, man.
Would you please step on over to the unmatched area? No problem.
Thank you, sweetie.
So you're definitely feeling a real connection, though, with Jenny? Yeah, we're getting along.
We're getting along really well.
All right, well, congratulations, you guys.
Please step over to the couples' area.
All right, time for our last place trio.
Ali, Darwin, Jason, please come up.
I toyou that lean-to was gonna be bad.
So much misery in that--in that whole sleeping arrangement, that I applaud them for not killing me in my sleep.
All right.
It's that time, so ahh.
Who's it going to be? Jason or Darwin? I respect both guys because you knew when to keep your distance, and you knew when to go the extra mile to help me not want to murder anyone.
So I'm gonna have to go with Jason.
All right, Darwin, can you please step over To the unmatched area? So take him over there into the couples' choice area, and congratulations, you guys.
Okay, we have our seven new beautiful couples that will be moving on to the next adventure, and, sadly, we have our seven unmatched men who will be going home.
Or will they? I have one more surprise for you, ladies.
I have one more surprise for you, ladies.
Oh, my God.
You are gonna get one last chance to either stay with the partner you chose Or switch him out for anyone in the unmatched area.
Now before we do that, boys, I'm going to let you plead your case to any of the ladies that you maybe had the hots for.
Q, you're eyeing someone.
I kind of want to get to know cina a little bit better.
But I don't know, though, 'cause, uh Tara's kind of got that Miami thing going on, too, so You're not shopping at the store.
I thought that's what we were doing here.
All right, q, thank you.
Jesse--Jesse, this is your moment.
Is there someone you had your eye on? If I'm being completely honest Ali.
Hi, Jenny.
Hi, Mike.
Here's your moment.
You know, when it comes down to it, I'm--I'm trying to find that person that's just easy to hang out with and that's easy to talk to, and I actually felt that way with shauna.
We couldn't stop laughing.
I think, at one point, we said our abs hurt so much from laughing that we actually had to stop to catch our breath, so I'm hoping that, uh, she feels the same way.
Love it! Chase.
Um I've had a few conversations with Ali.
It's just that "down South" attitude.
I would really love an opportunity to get to know her more.
It's the bug bites.
I was gonna say.
Anybody else? So, summer, because you came in first and you already had your choice of any guy, we're gonna skip over you and go to yanina.
Would you like to stay with the partner you chose, or would you like to switch with somebody from the unmatched area? I, uh, actually want to stay, obviously, with Ken.
Who's a happy camper? Me.
It's true.
That is awesome.
This is such a tough decision.
I mean, I don't even know what to do.
But I would like to switch.
All right, Leo, can you step over to the unmatched area? Tara, who do you have the hots for? Well, I'm definitely going to pick someone-- the only person I didn't talk to this whole time, um That's who you're going to pick? Yes.
Someone you didn't talk to? Um I'd like to choose Jesse.
Jesse, can you please step on over to the couples' area? Cina! Would you like to stay with the partner you chose, or would you like to switch him out? I'm I'm gonna stay with Jason.
So there really is a connection? Yeah.
I can't wait to see how it, uh, develops from here, you know? Me, too.
Let the fireworks fly.
Shauna! You have a decision to make.
This has been very tough for me.
I've been going over this all day in my head.
And I formed a huge connection with Mike, and I think very highly of you.
I also think very highly of Ryan.
And When it really comes down to it, I'm here for something different.
And I'm gonna stay with Ryan.
Mike, how are you feeling right now? Disappointed.
I took my time getting to know each girl, and I feel like the only one I really had that connection with was shauna.
I guess she didn't feel the same way, so it kinda feels like a little bit of a slap.
She obviously didn't get to know me.
Shauna, I see you're getting emotional.
What's going on? This is tough.
Yeah, I didn't want to hurt him at all, and, you know I just--I had to go this way.
It was right for me.
Tough, but right.
All right.
Jenny, would you like to stay with the man that you chose--Ben? Or would you like to switch him out for somebody in the unmatched area? They're all awesome, awesome guys, but I'm gonna stick with this one.
Look at that smile, Ben.
I'm very happy.
I'll be even-- I'll be even happier if all the twists are over.
It's been a long day, and I'm shattered.
And I don't know if that's because of lack of sleep 'cause of franky's snoring, or what.
I'm very happy.
All right, Ali.
It all comes down to you.
What are you going to do? I'm so glad I can just face you head-on And not have to make eye contact, because it's a hard decision But I think I am gonna switch it up.
So please don't hate me, Jason.
All right, can you step over to the unmatched area? Jason, I saw your face.
Shock, definitely.
I have to say, it does hurt.
All right, Ali, who would you like to pick? Wow.
Um So I'm gonna go With chase.
Because there is something there between us, and you better be a damn good swimmer, 'cause if not, I'm sinking you.
Oh so So, chase, can you head on over yes.
To the couples' area and join your girl? Chase, where was that connection? When did it happen? You know, just kind of calming her down.
Uh, she was-- she was sitting over there at the vanity, just like, "oh, God, it just sucks, it's this," but she speaks to me, loud and clear.
Congratulations, you guys.
Thank you.
Okay, we have our seven new couples that will be moving on to the next adventure.
Congratulations, you guys.
And unfortunately, this time, for real, you guys have been eliminated.
I'm sorry, you guys, but you have to go.
Thank you so much.
I feel like I got punched in the stomach.
Yeah, I'm pissed off.
I lowered my walls, which I very rarely do and took a chance and, you know, kind of was made to look like a fool for doing it, but thought there was a connection there.
It's her loss.
I definitely came here open to the chance that I could find love.
I'm sad to be leaving this opportunity.
I'm definitely still gonna be looking for love, you know? It just didn't happen here.
I thought this type of situation might kind of, like, jolt me into that, like, more mature looking-for-love situation, but I learned that, you know, I like to party.
Maybe, you know, it's just I haven't reached that point where I can openly accept love, andmaybe I'm just not ready to see it.
I'm not an expert in love, though, for sure.
Not yet.
I'm absolutely sad to be leaving.
I did put a lot of time and effort into it.
I tried to be the gentleman for Ali and really help her be okay.
I followed my heart.
I trusted my gut.
Yeah, I was hurt.
I did not find love in the wild, but that's okay.
My path will continue, and this is something that I can take with me and move on.
So, girls, you feel good about your decision? All right, well, congratulations.
You guys can go.
Have fun.
Rest up, though, because this next adventure is gonna put your relationship to a test.
Have fun, you guys.
Good night.
