The Action Movie Date
Brad goes on a group date where he and the ladies will be filming an action movie. That means they'll be doing some choreographed fights scenes.
Shawntel steps up to the occasion and performs her scenes flawlessly. Michelle steals Brad away from Chantal during their one-on-one time (surprise, surprise) and fits in her first kiss with Brad. Contrary to what Michelle told us before, there are no fireworks and action star Shawntel gets the date rose.
