On the fifth episode of Age of Love, Mark Philippoussis invited Megan,
Maria, and Mary to go to the beach with him. While Mark and the three
women were on their date, Amanda scrubbed down the kitchen and tried to
keep busy to keep her mind off not getting invited.
At the beach, Mark asked Megan to go for a private walk with him. Mary tried to join Mark and Megan on their walk, but Megan became upset when Mark ignored her. After the beach date, Mark invited Amanda and Jayanna to watch a movie with him. Before the movie, Mark had a private drink with Jayanna. After the movie, Mark made out with Amanda.
For his individual date, Mark took Jen for a motorcycle ride to the top of Mulholland Drive. After a romantic day, Mark and Jen played pool at a bar and made out. Back at the apartment, Mary got upset and cried.
Instead of having to eliminate one woman from each age group, Mark only had to eliminate one woman from either age group. Maria once again said that she was going home. At the elimination ceremony, Maria told Mark that he didn’t invest enough time in getting to know her at the beach. Mark said that he only spent so much time with Megan and Mary because it was his first date with them, and he asked Maria to stay. After Maria agreed to stay, Mark eliminated Mary. Mary said “I gave it all that I had. You know what, sometimes when you find love you have to make yourself vulnerable to being hurt. I’m going to go home with dignity. I’m not going to go home looking stupid. No one can look stupid for trying. The one thing that sickens me is that Jayanna and Jen are going to be here longer than I am.”
