The girl's are excited, they get to travel. Clare says, "Korea! I don't even have a kimono!" LOL I wonder if she doesn't have a Burqa either. Just as relevant.
First up: Group Date -- Card says Pop. K-Pop (It's very popular here with my daughter's friends.) The girls think they may be chewing bubble gum.
Nikki is already bawling because she has to share her man on a group date. Gosh. Didn't see that coming. Once they get to meet the singers/dancers from "2ne1" Nikki is still whining because she can't dance and hopes the audience if from the school for the blind. Kat thinks she's the reincarnation of Ginger Rogers.
They all dress in bright, cartoon colors. Nikki said she didn't realize they were THAT popular. I guess the 77 million views on YouTube seems average to her. (My son who wants to go to college in Japan just came out, "They're in Korea?") And he sat down. Yay, company!
They leave the mall looking like Aerosmith in the 80's and oblivious to the fullness of their humiliation. After a quick change, they're all in their tight minidresses and ready for more of Nikki's whining. Kat bugs Nikki because Kat likes to talk about herself in the third-person. She uses her quality time to tell Juan Pablo about her deadbeat dad with the 7 DUIs.
Elise is worried about what kind of mother everyone will be. She's wearing tacky, electric blue lace, so if she's so worried about Camilla, she might want to hire a stylist. She uses her time to tell Juan Pablo how serious she is. They have absolutely no chemistry.
Nikki finally gets her time and she uses her time to get real -- they seemed to have a real conversation. Nikki gets the rose. Elise says she wouldn't have Nikki around Camilla because of Nikki's negativity. But Elise looks like she's familiar with the bar scene. I wouldn't want that around my child either.
Sharleen gets the one-on-one. Clare shoots daggers out of her eyes. Because Sharleen is tentative -- read: not pathetically planning the wedding like Clare. Juan Pablo says she's his favorite right now. She doesn't seem that into him -- and I don't think it's because she's just reserved.
They're walking through the market and eating strange foods. They enter a traditional Korean tea house, and she's hoping they can get "real" -- I think she's hoping to dig deeper and I'm not sure Juan Pablo -- well, she tells how she has a Bachelors and Masters in Music. JP says, "If there was a degree in soccer--"
She claims that he is more fun than she expected. He wants her to sing, and she gets uncomfortable, but he closes her eyes and she begins to warm up with bird noises. Then, she sings -- and it's beautiful. Then, she kisses him again. She's kissed him more than anyone. She thinks, "There is a shot that we could fall in love."
They have a great conversation over dinner. They both talk about being dropped in a foreign country -- and connect on that level of being a lonely person in a strange land. Then, the topic turns to kids and she tells him the truth. She's never thought about kids. He gives her the rose anyway, which is unfortunate for the chicks at home already planning her demise.
Next group date: Krazy day in Korea. They're going to do Karaoke. This looks like a bad slumber party you'd have with your friends when you're 12.
Then, they get a fishy pedi. While Clare is wanting to attack the girls. She's the needy chick and she tells JP she doesn't want to eat Octopus, so he gives her octopus. At least we Italians fry it.
Clare acts like a two-year old eating broccoli.
Nighttime: Renee first. She bugs me. She's very masculine, but JP seems more interested than me, but not enough to kiss her. He's on a kissing diet because he doesn't want Camilla to see daddy kissing everyone. I guess Sharlene had already kissed him, so she got umbrellaed in.
Andi is perfect, Juan Pablo says and he wants to kiss her. But there's that diet. So they hold hands instead and fight their chemistry. The other girls don't know about the diet. Only that THEY weren't the ones kissed. This leads to rejection and tears by some brunette. I have no idea who she is. It's Lauren.
Clare's a game player -- and Juan Pablo -- falls victim and goes against his "no kissing" rule after just rejecting poor Lauren. He gives the rose to Andi and Clare should be kept away from knives. I can't believe Clare was one of my faves. I see nothing authentic about this woman when she's with Juan Pablo.
Nikki has a rose, and there's an "agreement" before the rose ceremony. This rule is obviously for everyone else. Nikki is "special." JP doesn't notice a thing. He is very into Nikki.
She's a little put-off when he talks about trouble in the house. "Trouble? What trouble?" Usually a good sign that you may be the problem.
Going home with a very long plane ride to ponder being dumped: Elise & Lauren. Ouch. Elise, while falling out of her dress, and stumbling over the cobblestone in her heels tries to maintain her dignity. Lauren berates herself for making a pass.
