Trouble in Padadise
Immediately following the last Rose Ceremony, Gia confronts Nikki. She clears the air, letting everyone know the intentions of the group and who Nikki said she'd vote for. Gia knows she's put a target on her back. Let's see if anyone takes aim.
The K-I-S-S-I-N-G Contest
What better way to follow a pie-eating contest than with a kissing contest. After you've brushed teeth and gargled with mouthwash, of course. Gia is the only one in the house with a boyfriend and feels this competition crosses the line. Maybe a kiss would help. Maybe not. Let the lip games begin!
The girls are blindfolded to share a smooch with each of the seven guys. A few ladies are displeased that they'll have to pucker up for the weatherman. Not surprisingly, some of them say that his kissing skills are lacking. Many of the girls love David's deep passionate kiss, so he wins the title of best guy kisser. Krisily even feels a spark from their smooch. Peyton's "light and not sloppy" strategy gets her best kisser honors amongst the ladies.
What happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas...until it airs on National TV
David gets his date card and the message is well-received. Vegas, baby! David picks Nikki, Krisily and Natalie for the Sin City adventure. Natalie says she's ready to get wild and doesn't see much competition in Nikki, who she feels is as much fun as grandma. The group heads over to a clothing-optional pool because, well, this isn't your grandma's Vegas!
Krisily has been attracted to David since the kissing contest. Her one-on-one time with him is interrupted by the Natalie, who lures David off to a cabana. The group then heads out to the pool where Natalie takes off her top. We applaud her decision, as it really is the only way to avoid tan lines. Nikki and Krisily opt to keep their clothes on.
Everyone gets dressed for a night out and head to their next stop, the villa suite, where a rose is waiting. David must send two ladies back to the mansion. He chooses to keep Natalie around but assures the others that it was a tough decision. Krisily wishes she could've talked to David before his decision to see if they had some chemistry. We'll have to wait and see if anything develops at the mansion.
David and Natalie are given the option of forgoing their own rooms to spend the night as a couple in the fantasy suite. As we stated earlier, this is Vegas, baby! David and Natalie choose to live the fantasy suite life. They decide not to reveal their coupling to the house, as it would only make them a target.
Gentleman, Start Your Engines!
Peyton picks Kovacs, Kiptyn and Jesse B. for her date. This ticks off Tenley because Peyton picked all the guys coupled up with girls. Tenley tries to get some affection from Kiptyn, but he thinks being in a couple is detrimental to his chance at winning the prize. He wants Tenley to keep some distance. Ouch!
Now, off to the date! Peyton and the guys head to the race track to watch and race one another. Peyton is all revved up and describes this date as the best she's ever been on. During some one-on-one time, Peyton finds Kiptyn to be amazing and funny. We can see that Kiptyn is willing to do whatever it takes to snag a rose, which includes hiding his feelings about Tenley.
Since Kiptyn is paired with Tenley and Kovacs is paired with Elizabeth, Jesse B seems like the frontrunner for a rose. Jesse lets Peyton know that he doesn't care how Natalie (who he recently broke ties with) feels about them and is willing to see where things go. Well, at the moment, they are going to the fantasy suite where Peyton and Jesse Beck spend the night together.
The Calm Before the Storm
Kovacs worries he may be on the chopping block. He's right to be concerned, as Wes makes the rounds to get the couples off. Wes tells Gia that she should try to get Kiptyn on her side, as his vote could be the determining factor in her fate. Wes is trying hard to sway votes. He even tries to get Kovacs to vote for Elizabeth.
When the Rose Ceremony rolls around, there's a tie between Elizabeth and Gia in elimination votes. As the winner of the kissing contest, David opts to keep Elizabeth.
Gia Allemand is packing up and going home. Also departing the Pad is Jonathan Novack. Without the weatherman around, who can possibly predict what stormy weather is headed to the Bachelor Pad.
