After their massages, Chris and Clare head down to the beach to play in the water. Clare thinks they had a “really really good first date” and she is excited about the rose ceremony.

Back at the house Elise and Dylan are talking on the beach. Elise is gushing about how amazing their connection is and she thinks she is falling in love with him. Dylan on the other hand is feeling smothered, and is disappointed that he is coupled off with Elise and doesn’t have any tie to meet any of the other girls. He tells Elise that he thinks they should spend some time with the other guys and girls and he wouldn’t be upset if she went out on a date with one of the other guys.

Later that night everyone sits down for dinner, and Marcus and Lacey head out on their date. They take a boat ride down the island and arrive at hut on the beach with dinner set up for them. While they are eating dinner together Lacey quizzes Marcus about his experience on The Bachelorette.

Everyone notices that Chris and Elise are flirting, and Elise confesses to Sarah that she is trying to make Chris jealous.

Michelle tells her that she needs to go tell Dylan what happened last night with Chris before someone else tells him. Elise heads down to the beach and tells Dylan that she kissed Chris, and Dylan is not happy. Elise argues that the kiss doesn’t mean anything, but Dylan doesn’t want to hear it. He tells her not to give him a rose at the rose ceremony and heads back to the house.

She says that he “gives her a little tingle.” They go out in the ocean together and Clare jokes that she can “feel his connection in the ocean.” Back at the house Dylan tells Marcus that he is glad that Elise kissed Chris because he had an excuse to cut her loose. Meanwhile Elise is telling AshLee that she and Dylan are going to wind up together, and this is just a “bump on the road.”

Later Elise talks to Chris on the beach. Chris hates Dylan and he thinks that he is a “bloated tan version of Matt Damon” and refers to him as “Fat Damon.” Chris is determined to hook up with Elise, and he wants Fat Damon to go home because he needs Elise to give him a rose.

A date card arrives for Dylan, and Elise is determined to get Dylan to ask her out on a date. But, Dylan asks Sarah to go on the date with him. Sarah is a little skeptical because she knows Elise will be upset, she tells Dylan that she needs some time to think about it. Sarah heads back to the house and Elise says that she wants Dylan to have fun and she gives Sarah her blessing to go out with Dylan. Sarah heads back down to the beach and tells Dylan that she is going to go on the date with him.
