I'll start with the good news: We can 100% confirm, once and for all, thatBekah M.is not a missing person, despite reports otherwise.I saw her with my own eyes on tonight's episode of theThe Bachelor, looking absolutely stunning in a polka dot dress and rolling her eyes at Krystal.Which brings me to the bad news: Krystal has not hadanypersonal growth since the events oflast week。But we'll get to that.
First, let's start at the beginning: We're on a boat!In Paris!No, really, the women are staying on a boat called "the B" because apparently millennial marketing has finally reached the riverboat cruise industry.Sadly, the gals are too excited talking about whether or not they'll get a one-on-one date to notice that they're floating past the Eiffel freaking Tower.Not that they would have had much time for an Insta moment, though, because Chris Harrison appears out of nowhere to reveal that this week there will be two one-on-one dates, one group date, and the first two-on-one date of the season.Tia has the right response: "Oh, FUCK."
Krystal is not worried, though.She thinks she's the "obvious" choice for a two-on-one date because 1) she is Krystal and 2) "there's no one on my level." Sure.As for the first one-on-one date, that goes to Lauren.A cute lil boat shows up to whisk her and Arie away, and Krystal says some more nonsense.
As they leave, Arie tells Lauren he was saving this date for her, which I call bullshit on: He definitely onlyjustlearned her name five minutes before this.I know this because Arie literally tells us himself that he knows very little about Lauren.Why would you "save" a date for somebody you yourself admit you don't know?
As we watch Arie and Lauren silently stroll through a market, Tia and Kendall discuss how awkward the date must be because Lauren is slow to warm up.They aren't kidding: The date mostly consists of her saying "wow" to all the landmarks Arie points out.As for Arie, he's concerned this means Lauren's not that into him, which...yeah, probably.He tells Lauren he has a crush on her, and she responds with a slight head nod.So, yeah, she's definitely not that into him.Yes, girl.Get your free trip to Paris!
After the commercial break, Becca, Sam, Bekah, Tia, Chelsea, and Jenna learn they're going on the group date.That leaves Krystal, Kendall, Jacqueline up for either a one-on-one or the dreaded two-on-one.Krystal, still convinced she's going on the two-on-one, deems this "unfair" because neither woman can compete with her.
Back on Arie and Lauren's date, he's fretting that she's not opening up.So, to get her talking, he shares details about his most serious relationship.Apparently, he once lived with a woman who got pregnant with his child, but he had to travel a lot during her pregnancy for racing stuff.One day, she called and told him she lost the baby...and was moving out.
This prompts Lauren to finally open up, kind of: She says she has a warped view of men because of her parents' marriage.That and she was engaged to her ex, and when that relationship failed she became even more guarded.This seems to be enough information for Arie, because he gives her the rose.They have a passionless makeout to celebrate.
The next day, on the group date, Arie takes the women to the real-deal Moulin Rouge.They learn some of the dances, and naturally Seinne is the best because she is truly perfect.Bekah (who, again, is not a missing person) decides that jazz hands and a big smile will distract from her so-so dancing.Tia, poor doll, is the worst by far at the choreography.Eventually, they're all put in the barely-there costumes, while Arie wears a ridiculous top hat and cape.事实证明，在这一天的利害关系，我想，高：谁得到玫瑰今晚将获得与阿里登台献艺。
