Bachelor Sean Lowe was excited to fly his bevy of wannabe-brides to St. Croix, Virgin Islands for this week’s adventure. All of the women were ready for romance and fun, except, of course, for Tierra, who was more focused on bringing the crazy with her to the island. The survivors of this week will introduce Sean to their families next week, so the stakes were high.
All About Tierra
Tierra was irritated that AshLee was chosen for the solo date, and she snarked that, at 32, AshLee should already be married and should be embarrassed to show her cougar self on television. Sean, for his part, seemed to enjoy AshLee’s perfect form in her bikini as they sailed around the island and went swimming.
The remaining ladies convened their “I Hate Tierra” club on the beach to discuss how odd it was that Tierra chose to sleep on a cot in the hallway to further isolate herself. AshLee was also dishing on Tierra to Sean, who thanked her for the inside information.
I don’t know if gossiping about another woman really comprises a romantic date, but the pair ended up making out on the sand, From Here to Eternity-style, as well as in the water. They dined on the beach, and AshLee dropped a big bomb – she has an ex-husband, whom she wed when she was a troubled 17-year-old junior in high school. Sean was relatively un-phased, as her dramatic buildup probably led him to believe (as we did) that AshLee had secret triplet children waiting to meet their new daddy. She told him that she loved him, and he responded “I know you do.” Not really what every girl wants to hear, but whatever.
You’d think that being awarded the second solo date would have finally made Tierra happy, but nope! She whined about the date’s location in the city of St. Croix, complaining that it would be hot and buggy. She cheered up a bit as Sean started buying her various trinkets from the outdoor market, and she went completely over the top with spastic joy during a small street fair. When Sean finally asked her about the drama in the house, she began a serious sulk. Sean admitted he had been influenced by Tierra’s trail of terror. They walked on the beach, smooched, and Sean shrugged off her ability to alienate everyone but him.
Sean’s next colossal jackass move was to wake the women before 5:00 a.m. for their date and take photos of them without makeup. Um, what? Desiree, Catherine, and Lindsay pretended to be thrilled about seeing the sunrise with their m'enage-a-Sean. The group took a road trip around the island, with the goal of seeing the sun set on the opposite end of the island. Highlights of the trip included a sugar mill, a donkey, and a tree house. Zzzzzz… Boring and simple Lindsay claimed to be surprised that Des was flirting with Sean. Huh? All of the women claimed to want the rose “really bad,” indicating that perhaps a lesson in adverbs could be the next fun date idea. Substitute teacher Lindsay got the rose.
Ding, Dong, The Witch is Dead!
Lesley, who seemed like the best match for Sean, admitted to herself on her solo date that she was falling in love, but she chickened out of telling him. Sean’s sister dropped in to advise him to send home the women who aren’t that into him. Tierra came at AshLee with her crazy arched eyebrow and threw a screaming tantrum claiming not to be rude. Sean found her crying, of course, face scrunched up like an irrational tween. Sean finally woke up and smelled the crazy and actually sent Tierra packing!
Always amazingly clueless, Tierra sobbed in the car about the girls sending her home. Sean’s sister breathed a sigh of relief. Sean announced Tierra’s departure to the other girls, who all tried to hide their church giggles. Alas, someone else had to go, and Lesley was the odd woman out.
