Surprise! This week was only three hours instead of four – which meant we were able to add another surprise into the mix and get the podcast out to you guys on Tuesday. What did you guys think of that timing?

We started this week with a couple of new arrivals – Fred and Blake (no, not that Blake – the Whaboom-hating-Blake). Fred sets his sights on asking out Dom and Blake, after trying to ask out Kristina, ends up taking out Christin. Jack Stone is not loving it.  But he does manage to pass the time as all of the ladies decide to find out what it’s like to kiss Jack while Christin is away.

The gang finds out there are no new arrivals to anticipate, but that there will be a date card arriving and then a rose ceremony that night. Robby gets the date card and asks Amanda to go.

Before we get our third rose ceremony, Ben Z chose to say his goodbyes. Only, of course, after a round of shots and one last pow wow with the guys. The bromance vibes have been strong this season. We can’t blame him though on his exit. As he says, his love for Zeus is stronger than his chance at finding “the one” amidst the remaining crew at the resort.

And one triangle finally comes to a much overdue close. Danielle L gives Dean an ultimatum – he’s either fully in with her or she’s out. I really think Dean was gonna let this one drag out even further. Thank goodness someone made the decision for him. Kristina’s comment as it was her turn to give out the rose was so heartbreaking – as was her confrontation with Raven from earlier in the episode. We are sad to not see Kristina next Monday but so glad she took herself out of this equation. You deserve the world, lady!

Night 2 was a bit of a blur. We had three new arrivals – Jaimi, Haley and Emily. All face that late-in-BIP challenge of finding a date. Jaimi asks Diggy, who seems to be into their date. Haley wants to ask Derek but um, that’s not happening. Same for Emily. She set her sights on Dean – who, in spite of seeming attracted to her physically, decides going on a date with her would be disrespectful to both DLo and Kristina. Ah – now you’re worried about disrespecting Kristina? Pssshhhh. The twins end up lining up dates with Jack Stone and the Tickle Monster instead … and then no one, as they freak out and storm out of Paradise.
