The remaining ladies are on horseback as episode seven begins, trotting to their next camp. The girls are each very confident about their chances with Jack, none more than Marissa, who guarantees that she'll be the last girl standing. It seems that our pampered princesses have undergone some drastic changes since coming to The Land Down Under. Not only are they acting more aggressive and confident when it comes to Jack, but their inherent fear of the Outback seems to be subsiding, as well. While on horseback, Jack comments on the change. Another son rises over the Outback, as the girls pack for the elimination ceremony. Soon, they all gather--butterflies in their bellies--in front of a beautiful orange and yellow hot-air balloon. "These three girls mean the world to me," Jack says, "and I need to know that I won't make one wrong judgement." JD gives them the movin' on speech, and then it's time for Jack to address the nervous ladies. Like we said last week, this could never be as dramatic on paper as it is live, so we'll just cut to the chase: Natalie is safe, Marissa is safe. With teary eyes, Jack tells Maria goodbye. Of course, Maria doesn't take it well. She cries a river before, during, and after the decision is made, and Jack and his mom join her with heartfelt tears. "Sweetheart, you are so special to me." Jack tells her. "Please understand that." This is easily Jack's toughest decision to date, but it's even harder on Maria. Despite the rejection (and her dripping mascara), Maria puts a positive spin on the whole adventure, saying that she did things she would have never done and that she's glad she'd come this far. She also gets to cry on the shoulder of Jack's mom, who does the motherly thing and consoles the poor girl with her own sympathetic tears. The other girls are about to be lifted hundreds of feet in the air in a hot-air balloon. As the episode ends, and we motor on to the grand finale, the last two girls, Marissa and Natalie, join Jack in the hot-air balloon. As they soar over the Outback, Maria and mumsy look on with tears in their eyes. Did Jack make the right choice? Will he find true love with one of the remaining ladies? The biggest decision is yet to come!moreless
