After last week's Colton exit, Becca Kufrin has narrowed her choices down to just three men. This week, the four of our lovers head to Thailand so Becca can break yet another heart and possibly get her mack on with some hot dudes in a hot climate.
Did she decide that polygamy can work and float the crazy idea to all three of the men?
Did she end up taking the train to Plow Town with any of the guys in the Fantasy Suites? Let's find out!
Becca Admits She's In Love With Two Of Them
Right off the bat, after trying to justify how Thailand will help her figure out what she wants to do (she mentioned something about temples, which, okay, yes there are temples but Thailand is also where Elon Musk has made plenty of mistakes), Becca admitted that she's in love with TWO of the guys, and falling in love with the third.
Ouch, to be that third. Or the other two. We can't really imagine dating someone who is in love with a handful of other people while they're in love with us, and how they could ever possibly shed those feelings so quickly at the end of the show.
Garrett, the ray of sunshine with a soul and a smile, and definite winner of this show, went and sat down on a bench in Thailand while Becca spoke about him in a voiceover. He was wearing flip flops. Man, you're trying to impress this lady. Not only that, but it's a vacation and you're probably going to be walking a lot. Flip flops offer NO support.
Red flag, Becca! Though, maybe it just means he feels like he doesn't need to impress her anymore and can be his true self.
Well played, Garrett. We still feel bad for your arches, though.
Did Jason have to declare the gallons of hair product he uses when going through customs, or did he sneak it into the country through other...means? Also during Becca's voiceover, we see Jason walking around Thailand, over bridges, taking it all in -- and his hair didn't move a millimeter.
After two weeks apart (according to Blake), the happy couple was finally reunited. They smooched a lot and then they went hiking to a sacred temple.
That's right. This show went to a sacred temple. Don't worry though, Becca laid out the rules: once on the path towards the temple, they COULD NOT KISS or touch. But, they could continue making a show about one person dating a bunch of people all at the same time. That's fine!
Spoiler alert: they made it to the temple! And the monks were totally cool with them, and even gave them some advice, in four parts, for a healthy relationship:
On one hand, we're pretty upset that the show spoiled that for us. What if we were heading to Thailand soon? Now we know how the temple hike ends.
Blake is also continuously terrified of how Becca feels about the other guys -- which, yes, is natural. But dude, you signed up for this show. It's been on since the 1700's, you know exactly how it works.
He then opened up to Becca about it yet again. And Becca took it in stride, as best as someone who is in love with a few other people can. She's been through it, too. She's been in Blake's spot before with Arie -- and it went south for her, so she just needs to be careful with Blake, because his heart will definitely break into a bajillion pieces when Garrett wins.
Look, we have no idea what Chris Harrison's handwriting looks like, but it absolutely does not look like it does in those letters. Chris had nothing to do with those, and probably didn't even dictate them to someone to write on his behalf.
Chris seriously has the cushiest job on the planet, but the price he has to pay for it is never getting a rose.
They're both excited to be away from "this" (meaning the cameras and stuff) and just to be alone with each other. We get that! It's a lot being on this show, with cameras all up in your biz and trying to fall in love in front of the dozens of people who are still watching it since its debut in the 1700's.
You know, we wonder what goes on in those fantasy suites. Do they stock them with board games? Is there Netflix? Snacks?
Becca woke up with makeup on, too, so that must mean they spent the night doing things other than getting ready for bed and sleeping for a recommended 8 hours.
In the morning, despite all of the "connecting" (read: plowing) they probably did, Blake woke up scared and terrified about it again. Is Blake a coward? Does Becca find that attractive? His fear is definitely a red flag and she better stop and think 'bout it.
Jason and Becca visited a market in Thailand where they got smoothies, did some dancing, and just wandered around without a plan.
Oh, and they ate a bunch of crickets! Which are absolutely the food of the future, so if you're gagging right now you better get used to it.
Then it happened.
Becca and Jason were leaving a temple together when Becca said something about their future and their future home, and Jason responded in kind -- but it hit Becca that as soon as she said it that she wanted to take it back right away.
She couldn't see him in her future in that moment.
Woof, Jason. We make fun of your hair chemicals here a lot, but we don't want to see you destroyed. We don't want to see anyone destroyed, unless they were relentless d-bags like a couple of the contestants this season.
But, we did get to see a producer! Fun. Not like, her face or anything, but she and Becca had a quick chat about how Becca was feeling because she excused herself from Jason, and it was nice to get confirmation that the producers do in fact care about the people they're making money off of.
It was a lot of drama, and it made for good TV, and we hope it was real and not scripted.
Later in the evening, Becca wanted to see if she could get the relationship back on track. She was awfully quiet as Jason recounted how he doesn't say things unless he absolutely means it, and that she got the full stamp of approval from his family… but then he asked her how she was feeling, and where "Becca stands."
She kicked off her response with saying her head was all over the place, and then she went right into talking about the brief moment from earlier in the day when she couldn't see a future with him.
Jason. Looked. Crushed.
Becca then excused herself again. She's torn up over it, because she's only "falling" for Jason when she's already in love with Blake and Garrett. She did suck it up and come back to the table, though, and said that the whole thing has been the hardest thing she's ever done.
She then told him she wasn't going to board the train to Plowville with him that evening in the Fantasy Suite, and admitted that she wasn't confident about a future with him, and she sees it more with the other guys.
In the most non-begging way, Jason begged her not to let him go just yet when there was still time to find a future with him. Becca then said she didn't think they could get there.
Jason took it in stride despite being crushed -- and told her he just wanted her to be happy.
On one hand, ouch. On the other, we knew all along Jason wasn't going to win. We're just surprised they edited this into the middle of the episode, leaving the suspense out of Garrett's time with Becca. Good way to keep us on our toes, producers!
If you're bothered by the fact we've been calling Garrett's win for weeks, and calling it relentlessly, we're not sorry. When it turns out we're right, hopefully you can look back at this time we've spent together and be impressed that we knew so early on, and with such confidence.
The question is: Did Becca take her sadness from Jason into her date with Garrett?
Nah, not really. She gave him a big bear hug when they were reunited. She just wanted to confirm all of Garrett's feelings so no doubt would derail them. So they went rafting on bamboo rafts!
It started off romantic, but then they quickly realized their date fell on a Thai national holiday, and the river was FILLED with locals enjoying their day. It was hilarious and was more of a party than a relaxing drift down the river.
And she ended up having the BEST time with Garrett, and knew she made the right decision to boot Jason.
Later in the evening, Becca was ready to get serious with Garrett about their future, and promises, and hopefully hearing Garrett say definitively that he's in love. Garrett then spoke about his fears (which feel different than Blake's fears, somehow), and how he's faced them, and how he doesn't speak on something and then take it back. He wants to be 100% right.
Becca pushed even further and asked him how he sees their future together. After kind of stumbling through his initial response about his career, he admitted he's never been happier. Then he said it.
He's in love with her!
So yes, they decided to forego their individual rooms and board the train to the Treehouse of Pleasure (where they stayed was referred to as a treehouse, but honestly it wasn't up in a tree) together.
He's gonna win. Unless all her talk is a ruse to crush us at the end.
Yeah, About The Producers Keeping Us On Our Toes...
We should have known. Nothing is real and everything is a lie on TV.
Jason wasn't gone for good and came back to fight for Becca -- and we let our guard down and thought the show really did the unusual thing and let the last section of the episode be about love without drama.
Honestly, we're upset that Jason didn't just respect her wishes. Yeah he got his heart broken, but that doesn't give him the right -- or the producers the right -- to let him go back to her hotel room.
He said some things, fought back some tears, and Becca explained the best she could. It all just comes down to how she felt. Not really sure what he was looking for explanation-wise, but it didn't change from the night she let him go.
And you know what? They said their goodbyes again. Nothing juicy happened, he gave her some sort of scrapbook "story" gift and told her to look at it later, and he left. He was sad, she was sad, and that's what happened. We'd tell you if it was wild, but it wasn't.
She said at the end that the world needed more Jasons, but none of it changed her mind.
Garrett And Blake Had No Idea Jason Was Shown The Door
They were both shocked, and so, so excited at the final rose ceremony! Now, all that's left is Becca's final decision and a marriage proposal.
Oh yeah, and they get to meet her family in two weeks, too! That should be fun, after what she went through the last time with Arie. Why her family is putting up with this a second time around is something we'll never know.
Next week, the men who lost the game will be back to talk smack. We're looking forward to it.
