This week, Ben and the women headed to the Bahamas! And they definitely didn’t disappoint in the drama department.
This week, Ben had a one-on-one date, a group date, and a two-on-one date.
The first date was a 1:1 with Caila (her second “date”). Ben took her out on a boat where they hung out, lounged around, did some deep sea fishing (with some very unattractive and crazy-looking equipment), swam, and more (I’m sure). I’ve liked Caila from the beginning, but that went
a little a lot downhill during her and Ben’s dinner date that night.
Ben really wanted to get beneath the surface of her smiling ways that night and she was taken aback by being asked on the spot to be vulnerable. She told him that she feels like she’s in love with him because she “feels understood” by him and that’s all she wants out of life – but not before totally throwing him and everyone else in America for a loop by saying she wasn’t sure if she was really ready and didn’t know why she couldn’t really open up to him. Confused: party of everyone.
HA! Ben whisks the girls away to a private island on a super windy/stormy day – to do nothing but sit on the beach. Alone. With nowhere else to go and nothing else to do. Read: more totally awkward scenes. And I really felt sorry for both girls because it looked seriously cold and they were both wearing bathing suits and shorts. The weather definitely decided not to cooperate with them! I was kind of sad that Ben didn’t change his plans and take them somewhere else. But I digress.
