All I want to know is why Jillian kept Foot Fetish?! She even admitted that she knew, Tanner P's obsession with feet went too far and yet she kept him anyway. I say the minute you start to see the creepy side, cut your losses and run. You don't want to wake up one morning to find some dude at the foot of your bed painting your toe nails. "Sorry honey. I saw a chip and thought I would help you out with a touch up on the polish". Creepy! That's all I'm saying.

This week the boys were sent on a bit of a scavenger hunt to find Jillian. Forced to pair off into their mini cooper's (wonder how much they paid for that product placement), the boys frantically ran around the city looking for clues to where their beloved Jillian could be. The dynamic duo of Wes and Brad were the first to arrive at the bank to find out that only one of them would get to share a romantic dinner with Jillian in the vault. Unfortunately for Brad, who declared himself the brains of the organization...or only brain, Jillian selected Wes to join her and left poor Brad out in the cold. All that work for nothing! I think I actually fell asleep for a while during Wes and Jillian's date in the vault. I know he's cute and all, but he talks so slow...and not in a sexy way. Maybe if he was saying something more interested...like anything about something other than himself and his "music", it would be different, but I would have asked someone to let me out of there.

Jake, the hot pilot, got to kick up his boots on his one on one date with Jillian. When she picked him up in her black cocktail dress and knee high red leather cowboy boots, I wasn't quite sure what to think. But I forgot about Jillian completely the minute they stepped into the dressing room and Jake started trying on western wear. I've never really had a thing for cowboys, but when he took off his shirt, I think I let out a little Yeeeehaaa! That boy is fine and he can dance! I think he even showed Jillian a thing or two on the dance floor. They even got their own intimate concert with Martina McBride. I think Jake got a little more than a rose out of that date.

The final group date was interesting. Basically, Jillian took the boys out to a basketball court in Venice Beach to get schooled by the Harlem Globetrotters. You could see the competitiveness starting to boil up in all the guys....especially David. For a guy who got so choked up, he couldn't even speak on the first episode, he sure has a lot to say now and it's usually all about Juan. I have issues with guys who get that worked up this early in the show. They usually turn out to have anger management issues. I'm pretty sure that even if she does wind up cutting Juan, he'll find someone else to hate.

Mike showed us his adventurous side...otherwise known as his Speedo side, when he decided that the best way to impress Jillian, was to put it all there and run into the Pacific Ocean. I guess she liked what she saw, even after the cold water, because she kept him around. Brian on the other hand was not so lucky. He jumped in the pool naked and admitted that he might have been hung like a light switch. It just may have been the final factor in Jillian's decision to send him home.

She also ditched Mathue, who seemed like a sweet little county boy...not very smart...but sweet. He teared up a little at the end. I kind of felt bad for him. I don't think he ever really had a chance. The English soccer coach Simon also went home without a rose. He was so bad on the basketball court, I have a hard time believing that he is athletic enough to be a coach of any sport. And finally...there was Julien. I don't really know why Jillian decided to let him go. He didn't even get a date this week. Maybe she just thought it would be lame to date a guy with almost the same name. Maybe she was hoping that he might hire her some day to decorate one of his restaurants and she doesn't like to mix business with pleasure or maybe she prefers guys who have a foot fetish over those who drive Lamborghini's. Who knows!? Let's just hope she makes better decisions next week, because I don't want to see Tanner rubbing her feet again and I don't know how many times I can stand to listen to Wes sing that stupid song.
