The third episode opens with a group date where the guys play volleyball to vie for time with Desiree. And so I bring you: DUMB date alert!-- what a horrible idea for a date, the guys outfits were terrible and Brookes ended up breaking a finger.
Desiree is getting ready for her one on one date with Kasey when she receives a phone call from Chris Harrison. I can tell from her facial expressions that she seems angry. She calls Brian aside when she gets to the house where the men are staying and she tells the viewers that he has a girlfriend back home. She asks him about his previous relationship and he says it's over and they're not even friends. Desiree then says, are you sure about that cause she is actually here right now. The look on his face is, "I've been had". Desiree actually hugs Brian's girlfriend Stephanie. Stephanie reveals that she and Brian were together the weekend before he came out to the show.
Stephanie tells Chris that there is no chance that Brian is staying there. Desiree thanks Stephanie for coming on the show and being so brave.
Desiree finally makes it on her date with Kasey, although it's a rather boring uneventful date, they dance on the side of a building. Kasey receives a rose cause Desiree sees he really wants to be there, but it doesn't see, like they have much chemistry.
Dan, James, Juan Pablo, Bryden, and Zak W. go on a wild west date and learn how to do stunts like they did in the movie the Lone Ranger. Then they have to act out a scene and the guy who Desiree thinks does the best gets some special alone time with her. She chooses Juan Pablo. She says he was the best guy to choose to watch the movie with her but he is very distracting. Desiree says her first kiss with Juan Pablo was passionate and she finds him sensual.
The group has a firelight date that night. Desiree spends some alone time with Bryden and she compliments him on his acting. She says that he doesn't always make a move but once she lets him know that it's okay to make a move, he does. Bryden says that after he kisses her he wants to do it again.
Zak W. says on his one on one time that he wanted to kiss her that day, but then they never kissed. It was actually kind of weird. I wonder if Des still thinks that he is a player.
James tells Desiree that his dad is sick and he wonders whether or not she is interested in him. Des gives him a rose because she wants him here and wants to get to know him. He gives her a daisy that he picked while she went to get the rose and they kiss.
Ben is definitely very sneaky and manipulative. Des is totally falling for his b/s. The guys spot her kissing Ben in the car. Ben then lies to the other guys about getting to spend time with Des. The guys confront him and he doesn't seem to be phased by the fact that he's a sketchy liar.
Oh boy. I really like Brandon but he is going way too fast with Des. He shouldn't have told her that he was falling in love with her even if it was true because they haven't spent enough time together for her to have those feelings for him. It's sad cause he seems like a really great guy. Note to producers, he would be an awesome Bachelor because he's been through a lot in his life and it would make for a beautiful story.
Who is Staying?
Cannot believe she chose Ben over Brandon! Wow, Ben is a monumental jerk. So Dan and Brandon go home. Initially Des just tells Brandon that he's not right for her. She redeemed herself by going after her and explaining herself. She doesn't think that they have any chemistry and she said she was so sorry. He said that he appreciates her, and she admitted that it was so nice of him to even say that. I feel terribly for this man; he's really been hurt a lot in his life.
