Date 1: Exploring St. George with the "Old Man"
|Emily and Doug|
|Emily and Doug|
Emily arrives to pick up Doug for his one-on-one and she can't help but notice how tense things are among the guys. Emily and Doug head out to St. George where they do tourist stuff like shopping(they both pick out a glass figurine for their children) and looking at souvenirs. They walk around town and eat food from the street vendors. They decide to sit and relax and while they are talking Doug tells Emily he has started a charity to show his son one man can change the world. Then he tells her why the men were so awkward when she picked him up and she is impressed Doug feels comfortable enough to tell her. Next they write a note to Doug's son. It was really sweet. They begin to walk back to get ready for dinner on the way they walk through a moon gate and make a wish. Her wish? She won't be single forever. Emily and Doug sit down for dinner. She is worried he is hiding something because he seems way to perfect, just like Brad did. She asks Doug what his last girlfriend would have complained about and then tells him ok I will go first. "I spend too much time with my kid, and don't wash the car enough." "I spend all day in my PJs." Doug says those are not flaws and feels this exercise is stupid, but he wants to marry her. Emily then feels bad for putting him on the spot and questioning his perfection. She decides to give him the rose.

All the dates are over and Emily takes time to spend with her daughter. Back at the hotel, Alejandro begs for another rose. Some of the men think Ryan should go home and while Ryan and Emily are spending time together, Arie cuts in because he feels the need to protect her from Ryan. Doug and Ryan have a strange conversation about how they agree kissing Emily does not prove anything. No one likes Ryan. Next, Emily goes off with overly intensive Chris. Chris whines about how the other guys bug him about being 25 years old and not ready for marriage and kids. After his time with Emily, Chris confronts Doug who was the one who mentioned his age and not being ready for marriage and kids. Doug pretends not to know where Chris is coming from. Chris is certain Doug's over the top humble act means he is hiding something. I agree, everyone has flaws I wonder what his are?

Chris Harrison interjects and tells Emily it is time for the rose ceremony. Emily looks at all her men and thanks them for everything thus far. Doug, Jef, and John already have a rose, so they are safe this week. Emily begins to hand out the rest, and the roses go to: Sean (yay, he is great eye candy), Arie ( he is yummy too and perfect for her), Chris (Ugh...), Ryan (Why?), Kalon (Really Emily?), and Alejandro (I hope we get to know a little more about him). This leaves Michael and Charlie sent packing.
This episode was so full of drama as usual, but is it just me or was there a record number of crying men last night. Nate sobbed about his friends and family in a cave. Charlie wept in a van after loosing the race and again in the rain after loosing a chance at Emily's hand in marriage. Jef had a reason to cry after almost loosing his finger in the regatta race. Lastly, Michael the headband boy (by the look on his face even he seems to be regretting this look) got all teary eyed outside in the rain during his rejection speech.
What do you think of this episode? Do you agree with Emily's decisions? I want to hear from you!
Tune in next week when they all go to London. Jef finally gets a one-on-one and so does Sean. They do some Shakespeare and someone calls Ricki Baggage. Ooh I can't wait as Emily tells him to "get the f*&%# out." I think it's Kalon. Let the drama continue.
