Clare enters the cocktail room and tells the men they look amazing. She says it is hard to come out of quarantine and hasn’t hugged anyone in months. Claire can’t wait to tell her mom she has found someone. She sits down with some of the men and has a good conversation, but then she ends up with Dale and opens up about her mother. He says his older sister has underlying health issues and he knows how she feels. He compliments her on her confidence and her energy. Clare says everything seems so natural with Dale, she has huge butterflies. One of her dogs come out and she jokingly tells the men it is a test.

Clare was nervous coming into this, but the guys are making her feel so comfortable and welcome. The men sacrificed so much to be there, to make sure she found love and she is so grateful.

The first impression rose is put on the table in front of the men and the pressure starts mounting. Tyler C. is sitting with some of the men and drops a bomb about Yosef, a lot about being reckless on Instagram, and flirting with girls who are mutual friends from where they are from. Tyler C. doesn’t think he is there for the right reasons. Tyler C. pulls Yosef off to the side for a talk, he tells him what he knows and that he is looking out for Clare’s best interest. Yosef denies everything and says there is no truth to it.

Then, Yosef takes Claire to the side, he tells her that Tyler C. brought something to his attention, and he wants to approach it head-on. He tells her that he wants to be honest and tell her the truth. Clare gets up and goes to get Tyler C. Enzy and the other men are upset because of the drama, it is taking away from time with Clare.

Claire is sitting with the two men, Tyler C. says that a girl who is a mutual friend approached him to say that Yosef was flirting with a girl, sending videos, during the quarantine. Yosef denies it and says he is there for the right reasons, he has nothing to hide. Clare says there are a lot of men that haven’t spoken to her, she needs to continue chatting with them. Clare doesn’t like the speedbump, and she is not letting the squabble get to her.

Clare sits down with Blake Moynes, he broke the rules and contacted her outside the show before they appeared on it, she tells that she really appreciates that he took that risk, she kisses him. Clare goes into the house and takes the first impression rose, she searches out Dale and gives him the rose. She tells him that she has talked to so many men, and just wants to continue talking to him. She goes in for a kiss which ends up being many kisses. Dale would love to sit with Clare and talk with her for hours to get to know her.

Claire is in front of all the men, she apologizes for not having had the time to spend with all of them.
