Her mom tells her that he is a nice guy, but doesn’t want her to get hurt, and it worries her. Colton asks the same question of Hannah G.’s dad, his permission if it moves to an engagement. He says yes if it continues going the way it is, he will give his blessing.
They leave the house, kiss on a bench and tell each other that they are falling in love with each other.
Next, Colton is in Santa Ana, California to visit Tayshia’s home and family. Tayshia has a lot of surprises for Colton, she says her relationship with him is based on trust, she blindfolds him. They get in a car and he is a little nervous to be blindfolded, she goes over a bump and he hits his head. They head to an airport, there is a plane, they are going skydiving. Colton says he hates heights and his heart is really racing. Colton says it is payback for taking her bungee jumping. They get coached, they have two parachutes, no sweat. In the plane, Colton looks like he is going to faint. Tayshia feels him shaking and is freaking out. Colton says a prayer, please god let him survive this fall as he has to lose his virginity. The two had a blast. They both tell each other that they are falling in love with each other. She tells him that the last person she brought home was her ex-husband so she is quite nervous.

He asks him if he is having the same type of conversations with the other women, he says yes. Her dad doesn’t understand how he could be in love with four women. Colton asks him the permission question, he says he appreciates him manning up, but he just met him. Colton is disappointed not to get her father’s blessing.
Tayshia talks to her dad, she says she went through a hard time with the divorce and doesn’t want to go through that again. Her father really doesn’t trust Colton, he says to her that maybe he is just telling her what she wants to hear.
