Jed gets emotional when he talks about his date with Alésia — whom he invited into a forest at night to watch him play the drums while a smoke machine goes off behind him — because she reminded him that, even though he’s been his whole life long been bullied for his extravagance, “You can wear an outfit like that and have a beautiful woman who accepts you”. “You’re a shell of your former self and I love it!” says Felix, while Thomas nods encouragingly. “I’m really proud that we’re vulnerable,” says Jed. “Yes!” says Thomas. “Look at us!” Felix says before wrapping the other two men in a hug. Is that… men?
Probably the most surprising element of the show is that more bachelors mean more choices for the women in the house – apparently for you Not gotta dance with the one you came with Guys are always compared to other guys, so they have to behave. (On Sunday, Felix was told he was in “the kennel” by his contestants, who were furious that he had publicly kissed one of them. “Have some respect, you’re in a group,” Krystal said. Felix promised in the future kiss more evenly.)
Jasmine decides that Jed doesn’t fit with her values (her values hate anyone who likes Tash) and asks Thomas if she can switch to him. When Jed offers Jasmine a rose, she declines…but instead of going home, she waits on the podium for Thomas to offer her a rose. What he does! Bachelor exchange successful. Before Felix can even give out one of his roses, a woman named Yuri steps up and says, “There are certain qualities I want in a man and you don’t have them” and walks off the show! Right next morning three more contestants (including Tash) leave home in protest at Jasmine’s boyfriend move. They accuse Jasmine of “looking for airtime” – which Jasmine had previously accused she to do — which is apparently an insidious thing to do on a reality show.
Just like that, the bachelors must contend with a terrifying new world where their dates can be broken off voluntarily. “We have a say,” says Krystal. “We can jump ship!” Suddenly Felix is afraid that some of his candidates will also leave him for Thomas. “Tommy is a threat!” he says before noting that Jed is “alternative” and therefore not a threat. things have changed!
“This is not the old-school bachelor’s where they fight for us,” says Felix in awe. “We fight for she.”
