“Rachel, let’s get a taste of the local flavor. –Nick”
Rachel and Nick go to a bar that is “only for locals” to have a drink in preparation for “the talk”.
Nick: Uh… Will I be, um… similar to guys you’ve dated? Will I be different in some way but I’m not saying which way because I’m not supposed to notice the way in which I might be different because I’m white and white people aren’t supposed to notice these things? Will this and by this I mean the distinct lack of melanin in my skin versus the considerably more melanin in your skin make sense to them?
Rachel: Yes and no. I’ve never brought home a white guy.
Nick: I have no idea what you’re talking about but thanks for helping me not look like a racist on national television.
Rachel: I’ve dated a white guy but I’ve never brought one home because my dad would murder him.
Nick: Will they be OK with it? I’m too young to die! I’m too young to die!
Rachel: If you knew the rest of my family you would see that we’re a rainbow of fruit flavors very diverse.
Rachel returns to the beach house glowing from her date with Nick. Corinne freaks out. She knows that Rachel, Vanessa, and Raven aren’t going home so it’s either her or Kristina getting the axe.
Dr. Harrison has another session with Nick to discuss his choices for hometown dates. Nick knows who he wants to send home and decides he doesn’t want to do it at a rose ceremony.
Corinne is freaking the f*ck out that Corinne is going home but if you’ve seen this show long enough, you know that the person freaking out about going home is the person who’s definitely not going home.
Lo and behold, Nick shows up at the beach house and asks to speak to Kristina.
I believe I said last week that she was going home this week. It’s not that I don’t like Kristina. I like her and I find her admirable. She’s been through some serious sh*t in her life and it takes a lot of strength and character to come out the other side a better person for it. But she just wasn’t right for Nick.
Love isn’t about what’s fair or what’s right or “giving people a chance”. It’s about chemistry and compatibility. The world can judge the love between two people as much as it wants but love doesn’t give a sh*t. (And there’s certainly going to be a whole lot of judging going on if Nick chooses Corinne.)
Kristina doesn’t take it well at first but then she comes around and lets Nick know she’s happy he’s finding love with someone even if it’s not with her.
I don’t know if Kristina has been barefoot the entire season because her American family never sprang for a pair of shoes for her but she jumps into the f*ck off van (that one’s for you, Jaime 😉 ) without any shoes on.
****SPOILER ALERT – STOP READING NOW IF YOU DON’T WANT TO READ A SPOILER ABOUT TONIGHT’S EPISODE. ABC SPOILED TONIGHT’S EPISODE EARLIER IN THE WEEK ON EXTRA SO I’M NOT SAYING ANYTHING THAT’S NOT ALREADY OUT THERE. BUT IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW, STOP READING.****
My dad watches Extra and they ran a segment last week revealing who the mystery woman is who comes back to talk to Nick. It looked like Danielle L. from behind but it’s actually Andi. I have no idea why she’s coming back on the show other than to make us think Danielle L. might be coming back.
So if Danielle L. isn’t coming back, it means the final two is either Vanessa and Raven or Vanessa and Corinne. My money is on Vanessa and Corinne. Nothing will make America sweat like having the most likable and least likable contestants battling it out in the final round.
But I hope I’m wrong. I will rest much easier knowing that the worst choice Nick will make is Raven. I don’t think Raven is a bad choice (I heart Raven) but I don’t think she and Nick are right for each other.
