Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 11
AIRED:
Jordan woke the sleeping beauties to inform them that the day would hold four dates - but that not all four of them would necessarily be going on them. That Jordan with his cryptic messages! He gave each of the guys a cell phone and explained that Erin also had a phone - programmed with each guy's number. In half an hour, she'd call one of them to go on the first date. At the end of that date (approximately 2 hours), she could call one of the other guys for the second date - or extend the date she was already on. So, theoretically, she could just spend the day with one guy, or spend it with all four guys depending on how things were going. As the guys got ready, they pondered what quality time with Erin would do for their standings at this point. Eric kept second-guessing his comments at the last elimination ceremony. He thought it was in poor taste to refer to the guy who chose the money (Vic) as "selling out." He really wanted to apologize to Erin for what he perceived as an inappropriate comment. I think it was making it a bigger deal than it was…but then again, I thought Greg would take the money, so what do I know? Chad, on the other hand, knew that now more than ever the million dollars would raise the stakes. Soon enough the first phone rang and Wade answered. However, he had picked up Chad's phone by mistake! Once Chad and Erin were in the limo, Erin admitted it was the first time she'd let her guard down. They arrived at an ice skating rink and put on hockey gear for a little one-on-one. And a little one-on-one led to a little butt grab! Props to Chad for busting a move! Erin thought it was cute. The two of them were like junior high kids around each other, very cute. So cute in fact, that when Erin went to call the guy for her second date - she called Chad! Meanwhile, back at the house Eric, Greg and Wade sat hopefully staring at their three phones. Alas, no phone calls for them! Erin and Chad arrived at their second date - The Arboretum. Erin said that so far the only reason she wouldn't pick Chad at the end is because if he chose the money she'd never be able to see him again. How sweet is that? After a lovely time at the Arboretum, it was time for Erin's next phone call. Would she continue her day with Chad or choose someone else? Once again, the guys back at the mansion were staring at their phones hoping for a jingle. This time, it was Wade's phone that rang. Greg and Eric were bummed out as Wade made his way downstairs to the awaiting limo. Wade hoped to extend his date, thereby forcing Greg and Eric out of any "Erin time" before the next elimination. Wade was also determined to show his edgy side to Erin and be a little more aggressive in the romance department. He said he really wanted to finally kiss her! Meanwhile, Eric and Greg tried to get Chad to spill the beans about his extra-long date - but he remained tight-lipped. Wade met Erin at The Conga Room and they seemed to find a connection on the dance floor. They laughed and danced until it was time for Erin's final phone call. As she did with Chad, Erin called the guy she was with and extended Wade's date into the evening. Back at the house, Greg, Eric and Chad stared at their silent cells until it was clear Greg and Eric would not be getting any dates. Erin and Wade moved to a Moroccan restaurant, but along the way Wade moved in for a smooch! She asked why he hadn't done that sooner, to which Wade replied that the time just hadn't been right. At dinner, Wade tried to relax and be honest about his emotions, despite the million-dollar secret weighing on his mind. Erin later said it was a very comfortable dinner. After dinner, the two got Henna tattoos - and Erin admitted (to us, not Wade) that Wade seemed like her best shot at winning the money. The day of the elimination ceremony, Greg was feeling left out despite Wade and Chad both telling him that they had "put in a good word" for him with Erin. Eric, meanwhile, was depressed and isolated himself from the others. Obviously, Wade and Chad had the most confidence going into the elimination ceremony. However, there was another twist coming…the Rob twist. Each guy visited Erin in the study prior to heading outside for the elimination. Nobody pulled a Paige and avoided the fireside chat. Eric used the time to finally apologize for the "sell out" comment regarding Vic. Greg just expressed his desire to get some quality time with Erin and really start getting to know her better. Later, outside at the ceremony, Erin called Chad's name first. No surprise there. And it was no surprise when she called Wade's name second. Both guys were asked to stay and they were happy to oblige. So it was down to Greg and Eric. On the one hand, she hadn't spent much time with Greg so she lacked a connection with him. On the other hand, she'd spent plenty of time with Eric yet still chose not to call him for an alone date. Hmmmm. Finally, she called Eric's name. She said she felt like he hadn't really been himself lately, and he agreed. She asked him to stay, but to try to relax! So Greg was out and it seemed like he never really had a chance. Erin told him that despite their great conversations, she felt it had been difficult for him to open up. At this point, Greg sort of snapped back saying, "Because I haven't had a date!" Um, okay. Take a breath. Erin sort of smiled and took the ring back. After Greg left, Jordan appeared. He gave Erin another ring - for the newest bachelor joining the group. Suddenly, on the veranda, he appeared in his trademark white dinner jacket. Yes, it was Rob. The man Erin had shunned during the original For Love or Money. What did Erin think? How did the other three guys react? And what was Rob doing there? We'll have to wait until next week to find out!moreless
