Chris Harrison spends some time with Jojo, reminds her that Robby loves her, that she's at the halfway point.... and hopefully she doesn't pull a Ben and fall in love with 2 guys.
Harrison meets with the guys and says there's going to be a one on one date, a group date, and for the first time ever, a SECOND two on one date.
"Besame. Besame Muchacho!"
Wells admits that he is the only guy who hasn't kissed Jojo yet. Jojo has to basically TELL Wells to kiss her. How embarrassing. I think he has to be going home, right? It's really too bad, because he's like the last good guy left on the show.
Wells and Jojo go to a show, where you look you at the ceiling and see people swimming above them. And then Wells and Jojo have a chance to do their own stunts. There is like zero opportunity to make out with Jojo.
Finally, FINALLY Wells and Jojo kiss. Oh, man. It looks like it was only ok. I hope there were some serious fireworks. I hope it's not too little, too late.
Wells says that his last relationship ended because they were basically best friends who live together. Jojo says in her private interview that statement hit home for her-- and she doesn't want that to happen again.
FORESHADOWING. Wells is a goner. Jojo says she can't give him the rose, and he handles it well. He probably knew it was coming. So sad. He's a good guy. And Jojo is left alone in the rain (with a hundred screaming fans).
Luke, Robby, James, Jordan, and Alex
"Living La Vida Boca"
Jojo and Luke do some heavy making out. He's fr sure safe. I think James knows his days are numbered so he decides to throw Jordan under the bus. Jojo says she'll take it into consideration, but she really doesn't hear him.... and she immediately runs to Jordan and tells him that James tattled.
I really don't understand why any of the guys, ever, on any season, would think that tattling another contestant would benefit anyone at all. Really, all it does is ruin the relationship with the guys.
Jordan immediately confronts James: what the F, dude? James quakes under the pressure, and can't really defend his actions. Yep. Discussing the rules of a poker game doesn't really call into question someone's character. That's something that The Agent talks about every day.
Luke gets the rose. The reason why Luke got the rose because he spent his time making out with Jojo instead of throwing anyone under the bus or having to defend his actions.
Derek and Chase
"It takes two"
Wow. Chase is one of my favorites, and Derek is BFF's favorite. Chase is gorgeous, but Derek is probably the only good guy left.
This date is super hot. Jojo and the guys are doing a three person tango. Both guys are looking top notch and they are filled with passion.
(I might be alone in this opinion. BFF texted me saying how lame this date was. I disagree. I wish I was in the middle of this tango sandwich.)
Derek says he's falling for her, and she says she appreciates that. Really? That's all she can say?
Now it's time for Chase. It looks like he has a black eye.... why? What happened? Did he get in a fight that I missed?
Their time together is not the same as with Derek. Chase has to defend his feelings for Jojo. She claims he's not giving her anything, and she must like him more than he likes her. Chase has nothing to say in response.
Meanwhile, Derek is in a private interview, saying how confident he is in their relationship.
Chase says he is here for her, he wants to be with her, he's going to do whatever it takes to get her.
This was a hard decision, but Chase ultimately gets the rose and Derek was sent home. Derek is in tears, and Chase and Jojo dance to the music of some unknown Argentinian singer.
Chase is so freaking hot. They make out quite a bit.
There is a cocktail party, but I'm not sure why they even bothered. I think Jojo already knows who is going home. James is too nerdy, and Alex is too.... short. There's no one else who could possibly go.
Luke (group date)
Chase (two on one)
and the final rose goes to.....
Jojo decides that can't give the final rose out to EITHER of the two guys. But instead of sending them both home, which is what she should have done, she decides to keep both Alex AND James.
James is grateful just to survive another week, but Alex is annoyed. He feels like he and James both got pity roses, and he wants to have a real relationship with her.
