Ali goes to New York City and gets a make over from InStyle; she says it's to prepare her for her dates this week.
Kasey gets his first one on one date with Ali; wow this should be creepy and it is. The two embark on a helicopter ride around the city. Then they go on a picnic lunch, and Kasey starts singing; it does not sound good at all. In fact, I really want him to stop singing. Ali is sitting there knocking back a glass of wine, probably wishing the date was over, so uncomfortable.
Kasey says you're different from all the other women cause you're Ali. He says I am here to guard and protect your heart, and I know that a woman is right for me when she does the same for me. The problem with Kasey is that he says all the right things and I really want to believe him, but it's too good to be true, and his voice throws me off. Ali says that she doesn't believe that everything is saying is genuine and therefore she cannot give him a rose, but she doesn't want him to leave.
Craig, Kirk, Roberto, Jesse, Jonathan, Frank, and Ty go on a group date with Ali to Broadway........
The guys compete for a date with Ali by singing for her and some Broadway producers from The Lion King.
Jesse did awesome his singing was really impressive, but Roberto (Rico suave) won the date because he was the only one who sang to Ali.
Roberto is surprised to find out that his date with Ali is that they get to be extras together in The Lion King. Ali says that going through this experience with Roberto is making them fall in love. (SPOILER! why is it then that I heard she doesn't choose anyone at the end! Ali are you crazy? Roberto is amazing!)
My question of the night...... this takes place at the wrap party after The Lion King....... Ali is sick, she goes outside in the rain with Frank........ why does she like this guy so much? He is pretty lame.
Inside, Ali tells Craig she is impressed every time she talks to him.
The weatherman (Jonathan) attempts to get one on one time with Ali but fails miserably.
Kirk tells Ali that since she is sick she should take care of herself and go to bed, and not feel bad about having to leave the party. She then tells the guys as a group that she cannot give out the rose, and that Kirk is going to walk her to her room. She invites Kirk in and they talk and kiss (this guy is a serious cutie too!).
Kasey goes to get a tattoo on his arm of a shield in front of a heart with a rose and 11 stones (the top 11 guys!). Wow, Kasey this is kind of crazy.
Ali wakes up the next morning, and is really sick, and is supposed to go on a date with Chris L. (it is also his birthday). She instead invites him to come spend the day with her in her suite. He brings her soup and flowers (how sweet is that? it's his birthday and he is taking care of her, another nice guy).
Ali feels better after eating the chicken noodle soup Chris brought her and decides they should go out on the date after all. Ali rents out a club where Chris and Ali go and talk and he gets to talk to his dad by phone on his special day. Ali gives Chris a rose. Then they go to the roof for a Joshua Radin (Ali's fave singer) concert; the date ends with them kissing on the roof.
Just some things I wanted to mention from the cocktail party:
Why is the weatherman singing? This is not good. Why is Justin calling people out for lying when he does it more than anyone else?
The Top 9
Jesse (wow this was a shocker to me, I thought they had some pretty hot chemistry)
Jonathan (not a surprise)
