After narrowing the field from 20 to 16 in last week's episode, Jillian Harris' third week as The Bachelorette featured the dismissal of three more suitors.
Who's staying? Who's going? The Hollywood Gossip's recap below revisits some highlights, with points awarded and deducted as we see fit. Here goes ...
On the roof during their candlelit dinner, Jillian gloats to Ed that she "popped his helicopter cherry" earlier in the day. We heart Jill, but no. No. Minus 2.
"I don't have any skills ... I'm not here to do $h!t ... I just wanna suck on some toes, and meet me some Jillian." - Tanner P. The foot fetish is either really creepy or just an act, but there's something amusingly self-deprecating about him. Plus 4.
Sasha wins the worst metaphor of the year honor by saying he considers himself a wolf, and that most people stay "in line," while he's "always looking for that mythical unicorn." Minus 5, because not even Jillian bought that cheesiness.
Jillian and Robby get out of the hot tub, leaving the other guys there as she gives him a rose. Plus 4 for this choice, as Robby seems nice, and Plus 5 more for the palpable awkwardness and disappointment of the resulting sausage-fest.
Jillian takes 11 guys to an old West movie set, declaring "You guys are gonna be actors!" Ugh. This is worse than Jason Mesnick's "amazing" trip to the General Hospital set. Minus the ABC programming plugs, of course. Minus 3.
UNFROZEN CAVEMAN BACHELOR: At least David is honest about not getting the attention he thinks he deserves ... and wanting to tie Juan to a tree and beat him.
Best editing of the night: Juan talks to Jillian. Cut to David saying he'd like to kill Juan. Not an idle threat, either. Dude should definitely drink more. Plus 12.
David's rage issues aside, Juan is kind of a d-bag. Minus 4 for telling Jillian Harris how to say "you are marvelous" in Spanish. Really, Juan? Minus 3 more for ABC's matador-esque Juan theme music. He's from South America, get it?!?!
After David berates Juan, and the guys who will not confront Juan, Ed observes: "Dave's a little unstable right now." Reid's reply: "He looks like he's about to kill someone." Plus 6, because he's even making his perceived allies uncomfortable.
Wes Hayden notes that he has more on the line than the other guys because he's written Jillian a song. This is a great point that totally helps him make the case that he isn't just here to help his music career. Wait, no it doesn't. Minus 10.
Speaking of Wes' song, why does ABC always show him playing the same 10 seconds of it? Plus 3, because this results in some funny, irate rants from certain The Hollywood Gossip staff members, but still. Now he is terrible and repetitive.
Minus 2 for the utter lack of Jake Pavelka this week, but Plus 2 for the return of Chris Harrison's fireside chat with Jillian at the end. Take what you can get.
THIS WEEK'S TOTAL: +8! SEASON: +25!
Rose recipients: Ed and Robby (earlier); Jake, Reid, Mark, Jesse, Tanner P., Wes, Juan, Michael, Kiptyn, Mike, and David (rose ceremony).
Outta here: Sasha (one-on-one date); Tanner F. and Brad (rose ceremony).
