hot air baloon date #5
Back at Bachie Manor the ladies are all sitting around together waiting for something to happen. And voila! Emily interrupts them all, along with the troublesome trio ripping into Vanessa Sunshine, by dangling a group date card. It seems that since Blair's departure Vanessa Sunshine has become their sole target. Lucky for them Vanessa Sunshine doesn't give af.
So, back to the country and Bachie is sitting down with Rhi for the cheese board and wine section of their date. He's come up with a little game for them to play. Next to Rhi there's a bale of hay with little pieces of paper rolled up and stuck in it. They each take turns pulling out a piece of paper and reading the questions written on them. Wow, Badgie really did blow the date budget didn't he? I'm kidding. It's very cute. But Kikki K has oodles of those little boxes of get to know each other questions. I would have just grabbed one of those. Anyway, Rhi is asked what love means to her and she um, uhhh, umm... Oh love? Aaaaaah freak out! She's not sure what to say. I feel like she needs some structure and perhaps an example of the perfect answer to go off. She utters something and they play on. Badgie gives Rhi a rose and then she mentions wanting to kiss him. Will he kiss her? Or does she go for the kiss? Does he want a kiss? Wait, what's going on? Badgie doesn't want be forced into a kiss so he just hugs her... Bugger.
Oh dear lord... The Editing room have given us the UnReal version of their date and are showing the footage they took after someone yelled "cut" and show us how Rhiannon's really feeling. She's trying to explain how uncomfortable it is trying to date and grab a kiss in front of the camera. Apparently IRL she would have no problems being forward to initiate a kiss (then motions a hip thrust with that... K) and the Producer says that it's ok for her to do what she wants cause she's a woman. Then Rhi starts freaking out that she's never going to get the opportunity of a kiss or date with Badgie ever again. She's on the verge of tears and isn't even sure if he likes her... All while holding a rose.
Cut to: Badgie sitting on the country bale couch like he's just been stood up. I don't think Rhi is going to get another opportunity to redeem herself.
group date #5
The ladies finally turn up to find Osher and Nick standing in front of camping gear in the bush. They are going to spend a night under the stars - yay!! Romy immediately points out that Vanessa Sunshine is not going to like camping. I mean, can she even? Romy then turns all her attention to her biggest question of the day... "Where is Nick sleeping?" Look out mate, she's mauled you once before.
Osher pops back and mentions there will be a rose ceremony tomorrow in the bush. Just the 6 of them and 1 will leave... Woah! They then begin setting up camp. Vanessa Sunshine is wearing heels in the bush. Classic Vanessa Sunshine. She's the Gina Liano of this season. She begins kicking her swag open with her heels on and getting her setup done quite fast, much to Romy's displeasure. Well, I guess she can't ask Vanessa Sunshine for help since she's so mean to her.
To break the tension, Badgie asks Romy, Alicia and Vanessa Sunshine to go quad biking. I don't think it's going to end well. Romy sticks close to Badgie and gets a face full of fish tails from him. Vanessa Sunshine sticks to the back and then flies in at the very end. Romy hates that Vanessa Sunshine is great on a quad bike for a first timer. Yeah this really isn't going to end well...
Romy spits to camera, "Vanessa Sunshine has to go. Her time's up. She's expired." Soz babe, not up to you who stays and goes (TF). So Badgie asks Romy for a chat. She's not going to talk about anyone else guys, but then starts spewing the negativity about Vanessa Sunshine and how she believes she's not here for the right reasons and doesn't even find Badgie attractive. She knows, she saw Cat ask (read: berate) her about it.
Badgie then chats with Vanessa Sunshine and she pops open very easily about the whole thing. As unsunny as she is, at least she's honest and open about how Romy has been treating her and what she's been goaded about. Vanessa Sunshine admits that she gets physically attracted later in a relationship. Poor Badgie cops a blow re his curly mullet and stash needing a makeover. I think he's cute because he's really funny and seems like a really good guy. Yeah he's got a mullet, but he owns that look. Good for him. Looks like Vanessa Sunshine just lost her chance though.
Back to camp, Vanessa Sunshine helps cook dinner over the campfire and just nails it all. Romy is angrier than ever that Vanessa Sunshine is so good at camping. Romy is also ready to pounce on Nick as soon as the last light goes out. So she crawls into Nick's tiny swag, an hour into everyone's sleep, and begins giggling like a school girl. Totes inappropes but that's Romy for you.
The next morning they all wake up and Romy tells Alisha about hopping into Badgie's tent (for like 10 minutes). Cass knows what's going on but the other girls don't quite just yet. Alisha's a bit jealous about the 1 on 1 time Romy squeezed out of him. What's quite surprising is how Alisha is describing Romy to camera, "Romy is a person with a lot of sexual energy let's say... She's a very outgoing girl, very confident to jump in Nick's swag." Interesting way to describe a friend.
Alisha tells Cass and says that she would have done it if she had the chance. Cass then asks Alisha would she really do that if given a chance and on a group date? And Alisha completely agrees and backs down. Yeah, I didn't think she'd do what Romy did either.
They all head back to camp and finish setting everything up perfectly. Badgie then decides he wants to take Cass on a single date FINALLY!! Let's see what's cooking between these 2. Badgie has history with Cass. He admits that because of their history he feels really calm around her and comfortable. Well there's a good sign! They seem quite normal around each other swinging each other around on the swing.
rose ceremony #5
Osher tells Vanessa Sunshine that she hasn't been given a rose and must now say her goodbyes... Uhh, she just stands there glued to the spot. She ain't saying goodbye to anyone except for Badgie. It's very very awkward, but Vanessa Sunshine doesn't give af. So off she walks into the distance and I sit and wait, with a little hope, that one of the troublesome trio is going to slip up in front of Badgie in the upcoming episode... That I have to wait a week for.
