We’re in Banff, Canada where Sean is feeling maybe his wife isn’t there? You’ve got to feel like some kind of loser when 25 women there to meet you aren’t right. At some point, you must look within. Of course, Sean’s a man so that isn’t likely to happen.
Catherine gets the first date, and rather than being in front of beautiful Lake Louise, she’s on some barren, frigid mountain waiting.
Until Sean comes driving a “giant, snow bus” — and I will not make any comments on overcompensation. They’re in frigid temperatures “playing” in the snow — which I hate to be obvious here, but they could have done 10,000 feet lower. Still, they’re having fun. And it's time to picnic -- just like the Donner Party.
Sean absolutely looks like an Oompa Loompa. Think I’m kidding?
Luckily, their date isn’t over and they get to dine at the Fairmont. Nope, they’re going on a carriage ride. Whose idea was the outdoor activities? The sadistic producer again. They’re dining in an ice castle. Catherine tells a horrible story about losing a friend at 12. It’s heart-wrenching. She gets the rose and tells her he’s crazy about her and can’t get enough about her. This is significant because it’s not the same thing he’s telling everyone else.
On the group date, there are seven girls and they’re canoeing. Leslie gets the canoe with Sean. Canoes can be hard to maneuver. I’m not sure I’d want to do that in frigid water. Selma wants a big shark to come out and get Leslie. Someone needs to teach Selma about lakes versus oceans. But she is smart enough to not do the Polar Bear Plunge and dive into icy water. Sean’s idea of fun is questionable.
Tierra doesn’t do well after the plunge. Some blonde (I still have no idea who these girls are) uses this time to cuddle up to Sean — and they call Tierra pathetic. I’d say Tierra was faking it, but she seriously looks heinous, so that makes me wonder. Would she be seen like that? What say you?
The other girls come back triumphant. Seriously, Sean is NOT worth jumping into a frozen lake. You know Catherine and Desiree are thinking that when they see Tierra. Tierra milks it and Sean likes playing nursemaid. The group date ends with a party INSIDE. Finally.
Sarah spends her time talking about her family, “Which is so important to her.” I would love to hear the girl who comes on and says, “My family kinda sucks. You don’t mind, do you?”
Tierra is stuffing her frozen toes into heels to get to the party with Sean. The other girls act as if Satan has arrived. She is talking while Sean is eating the face off of someone. Like I said, they’re all also-rans. But he gives the rose to Leslie — who is the one who snuggled up to him when Tierra was being carried off. So you know, she’s no better.
Sarah is getting sent home. Mental note: Family pics when a guy isn’t into you….TOXIC. She’s caught off-guard. And who can blame her? Sean is making out with everything in a skirt, so how do you know you’re on the chopping block?
Sean makes her say goodbye to the women, which is painfully embarrassing for her. I think the rose ceremony might have been easier truthfully. She’s beautiful. And better off, but I want to give her a hug.
Desiree has another one-on-one. She has to work for her meal too. By belaying down a sheer granite face. Then, she tells him about her rough upbringing living in a tent. Ie., DUDE, it would be nice for me to actually EAT in a building?? As her breath is visible, I'd say she deserves better.
At the rose ceremony our, "I can't kiss you publicly" Selma comes out with her chest launched to high heaven. And she kisses him apologizing to her mother.
Sean, in the meantime, kisses everyone else. And apologizes to no one.
He keeps Tierra (and her drama) and sends home Selma and Daniella. Ouch. That's gotta sting.
