There is a reader’s poll at the end of this update … you chose who gets to stay!
I remind you again (and again and again and again) that I am NOT controlling any of the bachelors (unless it involves starting a challenge and departing the house when it is time to leave).
For the most part, Rose’s actions are autonomous or determined by her whims (esp when interacting on an outing).
I will be updating this in an observer/commentator role.
So in the last episode, we found:
- Jack and Rose seem to enjoy bickering with each other
- Rose can get quite HANGRY
- Rose cheats at chess
- Jack has genuine feelings for Rose
- Prince is sad that he has not had a date
- Mike is a great “big brother” to him
- Rose is not happy about getting dressed up for bowling
- Rose can eat lava … Mike cannot
- Mike has anxiety at the thought of losing Rose
Today the boys are collecting frogs. Each will collect 6 and then for 24 hours they will have an opportunity to breed them. The top two simolean earners will get a solo date with the Princess and bottom two simolean earners will face elimination at YOUR hand!
Who remains from those two is up to you!
It is bright and early .. a sweet summer day in Oasis Springs … let the hunt begin …
Hunting frog is serious business true … but there is still plenty of time for socializing 🙂
Last stop Windenburg … Rose is so happy to be home for a tiny bit. (AUGH really Jack! SMH)
Prince finds the last one.
Starting (total) frog values:
The frog breeding begins in ernest (they will breed their most expensive to most expensive but cannot breed the same two type of frog together over and over again).
The little crew decided to stop off at a nearby pub. The tension was high and they needed some FUN to blow off a bit of steam!
The Windenburg town folks were glad to see the princess and get a glimpse of the remaining young suitors.
Mila smiles as she sneaks a peek at the boys. One of these young men will stay the course and win the hand of their dear Rose. She knows she is looking at her future king!
While most Windenburg townies are very careful to give the young ones their space, Mr Bjergsen could not contain himself. He jumped in to complete the foursome at the Foosball table. He will be boasting about getting to spend time with them for the next month!
(I think he lost on purpose for his princess .. I would have too.)
The “unwind time” turned into an all-nighter (not to worry they worked on breeding frogs the entire time).
A tired crew sluggishly ambled home …
for Jack the return trip seemed especially LONG!
Really Rose … you pick that for a quick snack before getting a few zzzzs?
OH OH AND WE HAVE OUR FIRST KISS! (I did not direct it)
Goodnight Mike …
AUGH later that morning all the boys picked FLIRTY cookies for an after nap snack … even though there were plenty of fresh delicious pancakes right on the counter!
It made for a terrific emotional mess in the house …
Pace and Prince finally got busy with a bit of romance(ish) …
Jack is mad …
Mike is sad …
Rose is confused … AUGH!
Best to go work this mess out at the gym.
A lovely sunset chat …
Headed home 🙂 (I just loved this “Abby Road” shot)
Time for drinks and dinner al fresco. The warm summer night was made even warmer by the camaraderie amongst them.
While the drinks were perhaps a bit odd, Rose’s grilled salmon was nothing short of delightful!
Rose absent-mindedly asks the magic cube about her future love life.
Mike appears to be saying why are you asking it … ask me 🙂
“It looks bright” came back the answer.
Hey Mike … are you seeing this?
The frog breeding has ended and the guys have each earned as follows …
* Jack 1,065 (he is exceptional at frog breeding)
* Pace 675
** Mike 670
** Prince 565
* = earned solo dates
** = up for reader’s vote elimination
Reader’s poll … Please vote to select WHO YOU WANT TO STAY.
Voting closes on 14 Sep @ midnight PST
