Ding, dong, the witch is dead!
Down to six ladies this week, the final week before trips home to meet the family.
Sean and the ladies all travel together via a seaplane to the beautiful island of St. Croix. Given fairy tale accommodations, with girlie glam bedrooms to share, the show begins with Tierra opting to not share rooms with any of the ladies and instead drags a fold-away cot from the closet to the living room and yes, sets her sleeping quarters up there, right smack dead center of the living room. We're not shocked, just tired of Tierra.
Date Card: One-On-One Date. Ashlee, let's get carried away.
The 32-year-old Ashlee, gets called a cougar by Tierra,of which I did have to actually giggle. Sean begins describing Ashlee as sweet, with a big heart and a lady that's got it all. They approach a catamaran and decide to jump in the ocean and swim out to it.
Ashlee tells Sean and all of us about her abandonment issues, cries, tells us more and cries a little more. Sean likes Ash. The couple retreats to an oceanside romantic dinner, where Sean asks Ashlee if there is anything that he doesn't know about her that he should?
Now being 32 and with the dramatic music, I thought for certain that the 32-year-old cougar was about to tell us about a set of inbred triplets that she gave up for adoption when the were born addicted to crack cocaine, right?
No, Ashlee tells about her troubled teenage years and that during that time she was having a tough time getting along with her mom and married her high school boyfriend during her junior year and divorced during her senior year. That's it?
Sean accepts her in her brokeness and lets her know that he thinks she's perfect just the way she is, kiss, kiss, kiss. Yawn.
Ashlee tells Sean that she loves him. (no comment) Ashlee also spent a great deal of time telling Sean more drama about Tierra.
Date Card. One-On-One Date. Tierra's first. A tour of the streets of St. Croix.
Not good enough for Princess Tierra. She complains. I scream and visualize choking her. Back to the date.
Walking the streets of the city taking in the sights, Sean and Tierra shared a drink and toasted to a good date and Sean purchased an eternity bracelet for Tierra. However, there was distance. Distance brought on by Ashlee's conversation with Sean about Tierra, finally it seems to be sinking in, right? We hope.
Time to chat and Tierra tells Sean that she "cares" a lot for him, hopes their journey continues, she's falling for him, then finally, yes, she too whispers in Sean's ear, "I'm falling in love with you!" Well lookie here, Sean, another one. Seems you've got your work cut out for you with two for two.
Date Card. Group Date. Leaving the final One-On-One date Leslie's. Love is on the horizon.
Before the group date takes place, Sean wants a sneak peek at what his future wife will look like when she wakes in the morning. He shows up at 4 a.m. armed with a camera to snap pics of the ladies, before they've had a chance to throw make up on! Amazingly these ladies were pretty darn cute au natural.
The group date is a road trip across the island to catch the sunrise, then another mad dash across the island to catch the sunset. Desiree gets some up close and personal time with Sean on the group date and we get a chance to see their awesome chemistry together again.
Group date ends and there is one rose guaranteeing a home town visit and Lindsay gets the rose, not Des?
Final One-On-One Date. Leslie.
No kiss. No chemistry. No eye contact. Lots of awkward moments. Until Leslie warms up and finally just a little magic happens. Just a little.
We get a surprise visit from Sean's sister, big sister, the sis that talked him into going on the show. Thanks sis, we appreciate your efforts!
Sean sits and has a chat with his sister about Tierra and the drama and how he feels about the ladies that have survived. Sis asks Sean what was the one piece of advice she gave? Don't fall for the chick that no one likes!! Finally, a voice a reason. Tell him sis!
Sean decides to go get Tierra to introduce to sis and allow her to make her own determination of how sweet, lovely, kind and wonderful Tierra is. (gag)
Sean has no idea that as he's walking over to the house that Ashlee and Tierra are having a knock down drag out screming match! However it stops as soon as Sean approaches the house. (hate when that happens)
It's the Tierra show!!! Sean steps inside just as Tiearra is bawling her eyes out because she's so "misunderstood." (kill me now)
Sean's comforts Tierra. Tells her he wants her to meet someone. She cries. Sean comforts her more. She cries more. Sean tells her he really wants her to meet someone and he understands how hard it must be for her in the house. She cries some more.
Then the sky opened, angels began to sing, surely that was the music from a harp and ... Sean gives Tierra the boot! Ding, dong, the witch is dead, the witch is dead, which old witch? The wicked witch is dead!
No more Tierra! Sean asks Tierra if she's OK after giving her the "get outta here" and Tierra says "no!" Quick, someone file a restraining order because I smell a cray cray stalker!
Sean tells the ladies that he had a moment of clarity and realized that Tierra could never be his wife. Ya think? We've only been telling you this forever, Sean!
Rose ceremony. Everyone gets a rose, Leslie gets a limo ride!
Next week, it's home town week and Sean visits the homes and families of the final four ladies. We're getting closer to a proposal, folks. Great show!
