This episode started with Chad coming back into the house after talking to Chris Harrison, and he apologized to Evan and offered to give him $20 for a new shirt. Evan continued to be a dink who just kept trying to poke the bear, even though Chad did all he was asked to do.
Jojo then showed up for their pre-rose ceremony pool party. They were all having a blast, until Evan’s nose just started bleeding for no reason. But no drama unfolded from it, they all just joked that it was Chad. So everyone is happy.
Whenever Jojo took any of the guys aside they talked about Chad, even though she seems totally fine with Chad. Chad overheard Derek talking about him, so Chad tried to take him aside and confront him about it. It was a pretty mild confrontation, they both said their peace but still ended unhappy.
Honestly the negative energy is coming more from literally every other guy than it is from Chad.
Anyways, then there was the rose ceremony, where Jojo gave roses to Grant, Derek, Jordan, Luke, Robbie, Wells, James F., Vinny, Daniel (seriously, what?), Alex, and Chad. This means Ali (NO!), Christian, and Nick.
We’ll never forget you Ali.
After that they all packed their bags and headed to Nemacolin, Pennsylvania. Once there, the one-on-one date went to Luke. They got into a too-hot hottub. He got a rose after talking about his military service.
The group date went to Derek, James T., Daniel, Chase, Wells, Vinny, James F., Evan, Grant, Jordan, and Robbie. Which means Chad and Alex were going to end up on a two-on-one.
The group went to play football, where James Taylor injured himself and needed stitches. They kept the blood on him for good measure and to remind us of what kind of badass he is (you know, injuring yourself in a small football match). Evan also got another bloody nose. Ugh I am just over that dude.
Jordan got the group date rose, after reassuring Jojo that he was falling for her.
As per usual for the two-on-one date, they went to the middle of nowhere, presumably because whoever doesn’t get chosen on these is left to die.
This was one of the most awkward dates ever. When Alex and Jojo went to talk privately, Alex ratted on Chad and told him how aggressive Chad can be. So Jojo confronted Chad, and told him that she gave him a second chance and that she’s disappointed in him.
She went off to think by herself, where she thought about how maybe Chad is just dealing with his father’s death. Chad threw his rustic, camping coffee cup into the abyss. He then went to confront Alex, of course.
Favourite insult: go drink some milk man.
Jojo decided that Chad wasn’t the person for her, and gave the rose to Alex. Sending Chad on his way, into the forest, to try to find his way out. In the dark. Whistling.
Where he did end up was back at the guys house, I guess to say his peaceful goodbyes. We’ll find out next week.
