The fun begins when a cast-off cast member from Rachel’s season of “The Bachelorette” washes up with a date card burning a hole in his pocket. Except for one hot and heavy couple, many of the girls are excited to see him, making the some of the guys jealous.
Later, one frustrated female, who doesn’t know where she stands with her man, makes it clear she would love to go on a date with the newcomer. Meanwhile, another dissatisfied damsel is ready to repel the two would-be heroes for a chance to get to know the new guy. On a date, new kid on the block and the hot commodity bond over margaritas, then stumble upon some dancers, who cheer the crushing couple on as they stumble through the fancy dance moves and crush it. The guy hopes his dancing is good enough to earn him a rose later on that night.
During the cocktail party leading up to the first rose ceremony of the season, one guy tells one of the women he wants to slow down their relationship … a bold move considering that, with 12 guys scrambling after eight roses, some of them are about to have the gates of Paradise slammed behind them.
The morning after, one lucky loser is safe but sorry, having received a rose from a buddy rather than from his prospective bride. But he’s feeling no pain when a nubile newbie bounces into Paradise, showing a date card and ample cleavage. Although all the guys find her hot (and all the girls are worried about losing their guys to her), she has her eyes only on one individual … until she finds out interesting news about another couple.
At the bonfire, one doll is feeling encouraged by the talk she had with one of the pretty boys until he shows up with a birthday cake for someone else! She runs off to cry into her pillow.
