On the season finale of Age Of Love, Mark Philippoussis took Amanda and
Jen to Australia to meet his family and friends. When the two women
met Mark’s mom, Jen had a gift, while Amanda was empty handed. Mark’s
family and friends were shocked to learn Jen was forty-eight years
old. Jen dominated the conversation, while Amanda was quiet.
Jen jumped in and helped with fixing salads for dinner, while Amanda watched. Mark’s mom pulled Amanda aside and said she was very shy like her. After both women had left, Mark’s mom revealed that she liked Amanda better because she was shy and Mark’s sister revealed that she liked Jen better because of her maturity.
For his first one-on-one date, Mark took Jen on a romantic gondola ride. Mark also took Jen to dinner in an aquarium. For his second one-on-one date, Mark took Amanda to an animal sanctuary. Mark also took Amanda to dinner at a Japanese restaurant.
At the elimination ceremony, Mark told forty-eight year old Jen that he was sorry that he just didn’t think it would work out. Mark told twenty-five year old Amanda that it had been an amazing journey and that he would love for her to continue that journey with him. Amanda Salinas said “I think I’m a little bit happier than the happiest girl in the world, because I have my man. I have Mark.”
