Episode Summary

Episode 5
As this week's show begins, Jack is agonizing over the elimination, and the girls are even more stressed than he is. He peers them over and begins calling names. He asks Natalie to remain. The same goes for Cortney, then Maria. Jack's speeches are getting even more dramatic, as he calls the elimination process cruel and against his nature. What may be even more cruel is what he does next- eliminating Adrienne, the first girl he kissed in the game, only to keep newcomer Meri-De. Jack admits that while he and Adrienne have become good friends, there's no passion there. Adrienne agrees with the friends-only thing, even if the other girls seem to bristle at Jack's inclusion of Meri-De at the expense of their friend. After the elimination, the girls and Jack climb on the tiny plane and head off to their luxurious vacation in Perth. The girls are bubbling over with excitement. Jack, however, is already dreaming of a return to the Outback. After their spa experience is over, most of the girls are upstairs relaxing. Most, but not all. The enterprising Maria is on her way to Jack's suite. "I shouldn't be doing this. I'm a bad girl," she states, as she saunters down the hall in her sexy black dress and heels. What did they get up to? We'll never know, as Jack closed his room door on the camera crew. At least we know Maria paid Jack a visit. The other contestants don't even know about the late night rendezvous. The girls reconvene with Jack, who knew nothing of the choice JD presented them. He learns that all of them chose to give up two weeks of luxury for his sake. There's nothing like adding to the stress and guilt he's going to feel when he eliminates another contestant. As the elimination ceremony begins, Jack calls each girl up, one at a time, and lets them know their fates. Meri-De is the first to receive a pass to the next round. The next one goes to Maria. Finally, it's between Cortney and Natalie, both of whom opened up to Jack during their individual dates. Which girl made the biggest impression? Apparently, it was Natalie, who's invited to return to the Outback. Poor Cortney, turning down a vacation for a chance at romance, only to be sent home empty-handed.moreless
