Why they’re in Warsaw we don’t know (poor Benny needed mommy and daddy), who he also doesn’t want the girls to peek at through their windows. Because they might be having sex. Why he felt the need to say that about his parents to all his girlfriends, who knows.
Lauren got the first date, where he brought her to the spot where he had his first kiss, and then described said kiss. Then he awkwardly kissed her. There were no roses on this date.
Back at their house the girls were all upset because Ben had come in and asked Lauren on a date (compared to a regular date card). When the actual date card arrived Jojo got the second one-on-one date.
Surprise, surprise they went to a sports stadium. We get it Ben, you thin sports are really cool.
The group date was Caila, Amanda, and Becca, leaving Emily with her first one-on-one. On the three-on-one, they went on a boat ride, with Ben and Caila in one boat and the other two in their own boat.
For the rest of the date everyone was just super bitter to be on the group date at all. Amanda ended up getting the group date rose, meaning Ben is of sure going to meet her family (including her kids), and she got to continue on the date with him. Being in Indiana wasn’t American enough, so they went to work at a McDonald’s drive-thru to really solidify the experience. Can we also take a minute to discuss how awkward Ben is at kissing? There hasn’t been one normal kissing experience yet.
On the plus side when they went to the carnival held in the honour (eyeroll), Ben was the most real we’ve seen him while riding the rides that terrified him. Finalllly. Please do every date on a rollercoaster.
Emily got to meet Ben’s family, where the fact she was so young (23) was continually brought up (because Ben is a MATURE 26). He then took her back to the house the girls were ate, where they sat on a bench where all the ladies could see them and that’s where he decided to break up with her. In his words he “does not see her as a wife”. He did take full credit for making her her own person without her twin.
At the rose ceremony, after a talk with Chris Harrison about how tough this is, Ben gave roses to Lauren, Caila, and Jojo, leaving Becca with two seasons and zero boyfriends under her belt.
