On the third episode of Age of Love, Mark Philippoussis selected Kelli
and Amanda to go on a dinner date with him. Each woman thought they
were going on an individual date with Mark, but they actually wound up
going to dinner with Mark at the same time. Each girl sat at a table
on opposite sides of the same restaurant, and Mark went back and forth
between the two.
The women in their twenties got to plan dates for the women in their forties, while the women in the forties got to plan dates for the women in their twenties. The women in their twenties wound up going to a kid’s birthday party with Mark. Mark was impressed in how genuine Adelaide was with the kids, and he invited her to ride back in the limo with him. The women in their forties wound up going to a seniors water aerobics class with Mark. Mark selected Maria to ride back in the limo with him.
At the elimination ceremony, Mark had to select one woman from each age group to send home. From among the younger women, Mark eliminated Adelaide, because he didn’t feel like she was giving him anything when he kissed her. Adelaide said “He was right about the kiss. If the kiss is bad, then there’s nothing there, and I feel very sad, because I feel like I wasn’t being honest with myself about the connection I was having with Mark.”
From among the older women, Mark eliminated Lynn, because he didn’t feel like she was comfortable with the whole experience. Lynn said “The hardest part right now is just leaving so soon. I would like to have seen at least the one-on-one, had the one-on-one with Mark, just to find out, but that’s not going to happen. My grandmother is always telling me, I pray to God every day that he lets me live long enough to see you get married. I hope she gets her dream.”
