For the group date, Brad took Jenni, Hillary, Kristy and DeAnna to a pool party. Hillary described what she would let Brad do to her, but most of the conversation was bleeped out. Brad wanted to kiss DeAnna, but he didn’t because there were three other girls watching. Brad walked out of the other’s girls’ sight with Jenni and made out with her in a hammock.
For the second one-on-one date, Brad took Sheena to pick out a gown. After Sheena put on her new gown, she tripped and fell while walking down the stairs. Then, Brad took Sheena to a romantic dinner in a room filled with balloons and presented her with diamond earrings.
At the rose ceremony, Brad gave roses to DeAnna, Jenni, Sheena, and Bettina. Hillary and Kristy were eliminated from the competition. After saying goodbye to Brad, Hillary went outside and sobbed that she couldn’t breathe. Hillary said “Everything happens for a reason, and I don’t understand why, but everything happens for a reason.”
As Hillary sobbed, Brad went outside to comfort her. Hillary asked why he was sending her home, and Brad said he was too scared to take as big a step as meeting her family and then realize at the end that they are too good of friends instead of anything else. After Brad said goodbye to Hillary again, she sobbed “It just sucks to be known as ‘the friend.’”
