      It's time for the final showdown! Tonight, it's Natalie vs. Marissa in a no-holds-barred jello wrestling match to determine who will win Jack's heart! Okay, we're kidding. As you well know, Jack has to decide for himself who he'll end up with. Not only does Jack have to choose between the lovely Natalie and the strong-willed Marissa, he only has one hour to make that decision. Jack approaches Marissa first, and takes her hand. "From day one," he begins, "you caught my eye. On many occasions that we spent together, I felt a connection with you. You captured my heart and my soul. You know that by standing here now, you mean the world to me. This decision today was the hardest choice I had to make, and obviously there can be only one. But today...that decision is going to someone else." Marissa is crestfallen, but keeps her chin up. She puts her head on Jack's shoulder before letting him go. "I want you to be happy, ok?" she tells him. Jack makes his way to where Natalie waits. By now, she's the only one who doesn't know she's the winner! "Princess," he starts to say, "since day one, I've found this journey with you has slowly blossomed. The way that you make me feel, and hopefully the way I make you feel, has made this journey a whole lot easier. The person you are is the person I long for, and I felt that you had now completed me. And you know now...that you are the last girl that I would like to continue on this journey with me." Natalie squeals with happiness and hugs her hero. The two kiss, while Jack hides his face and his tears of joy in Natalie's hair.moreless

      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

      As this week's episode begins, Jack and the ladies--Maria, Natalie and Meri-De, just in case you forgot who's left--are back at camp, and have just received a surprise visit from an old mate. That's right, ice queen Marissa has boomeranged back into the game. With the exception of Meri-De (who never knew Marissa before she was booted), the girls are floored by her return. "Did you guys miss me?" Marissa asks, receiving nothing but silence from the contestants. Right away, Marissa is bringing her best game. She's being rude to the other girls, asking snippy questions and turning her back on them when they answer. She's showing them all that she's going to be their worst nightmare, as if they need a reminder. Jack, on the other hand, is just happy to see her. "I don't think it will take her long to win my heart back," he admits. "But at the same time, I'm not trying to show too much emotion in front of the girls." Marissa notices that Natalie is wearing Jack's necklace, but can't get the story out of her. For the first time since coming back, Marissa is the one who feels uncomfortable. But she's confident that she can win Jack's affection now that she's back in the game. Within a few hours, she's already stealing illicit kisses away from the rest of the group. There's no way to make the elimination as dramatic online as it is to watch on television, so we'll just cut to the chase. The girls all feel the pressure and worry about being sent home, but the original girls needn't have worried. Jack eliminates the strong and sexy Meri-De. Meri-De surprised herself with her own emotional reaction at being cut, but if you've watched her at all since she joined the show, you know she'll be fine. Beautiful, athletic, independent and now a bonafide reality TV star. As if she didn't have enough male attention before the show. Maria, Natalie, Marissa, and, of course, our hero Jack climb onto their horses to head to the next camp. The numbers are getting smaller, but the emotions and the challenges just keep getting harder. What danger will the girls have to face in the next episode?moreless

      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

      As this week's episode begins, Jack is leading the girls to their next campsite...by camel. Because of a sick dromedary, however, Jack has to cross the terrain on foot. Soon, the girls are off the camels and hoofing it once again. Jack decides the girls could use a treat, so he leads them to a scenic watering hole for a little swimming and a nice picnic. Nothing is easy in the Outback, however, and Jack tells the girls that they'll have to jump off a twenty-foot cliff into the waters below to get to the picnic. Jack has no fear, and demonstrates a cliff jump for the ladies. He finds himself alone at the bottom, however, when none of the girls will follow. "Ladies, it's time to meet your new competition," JD proclaims, gesturing toward the top of the cliff. As the girls strain their eyes to see, five buff women in spandex and climbers helmets begin rappelling down the side of the cliff. The new girls are all American adventure seekers from different walks of life. There's Meri-De, the pro beach volleyball player; Angela, an extreme sport athlete; Jennifer, the stuntwoman; Rayne, a survivalist; and Laura, a personal trainer. The girls are all in top shape, and are there to compete against the original ladies for Jack's heart. When the four remaining originals take Meri-De back to their camp, they try to make her feel at home (to her face, at least), but the differences between her and the rest of the girls quickly becomes apparent. Jack swoops in and rescues the new girl, however, taking her off on a one-on-one date. The two instantly connect over their adventurous spirits, which makes the girls bristle when Jack and Meri-De return to camp. When morning comes, the group gathers by the plain for their trip. But JD is present, and is up to his old tricks. "Unfortunately," he says, "there is only room for four girls on the plane." Jack must choose one more girl to be voted off before they go to Perth. Who will it be?moreless

      As this week's episode begins, the remaining contestants are on their way to the next campsite. Accompanied by Jack and piloting a fleet of jeeps called "bullcatchers" (at least those few girls who can drive a manual transmission), the girls splash across rivers and bounce over the rough terrain. The ride is wild, and several of the girls seem to be treating the passage like an Outback rollercoaster. Marissa tries to use this as an opportunity to impress Jack, and hits a tree in the process. After a night of debate and politicking, during which Maria takes an ill-advised trip to Jack's tent, the girls meet the next morning to cast their votes. There are only five camels, but six girls. With Mary not allowed to cast a vote, the rest of the contestants get to choose who will ride off into the sunset. Each girl gets to explain their vote to Jack--in front of the other girls--and the choice is unanimous. Marissa is sent packing. In fact, every girl votes for Marissa, except for Marissa, herself (who casts a bitter vote for Adrienne, calling her "classless"). Jack is pained by Marissa's departure, but he shouldn't be. As the remaining five ladies ride off on their camels, JD Roberto reveals the game's next twist.moreless

      After the drama of the prior elimination ceremony, eight women remain to compete for Jack's heart. As the group gets smaller, there are more chances for Jack to bond with the girls and more conflict between the contestants. As the episode begins, there's pandemonium as the ladies attempt to reach the next campsite by boat. The girls can coordinate an outfit, but not their canoes. While journeying down the river, several of the boats capsize. Jack is forced to dive into the raging rapids and rescue a few of the ladies. Once again, Marissa plays damsel in distress, as she floats down the river helplessly. But Jack is on the job, making sure all of the women reach their destination safely. The next day, Jack takes the ladies to his friend Sharon's farm. After a little girl talk, the contestants feel that they can easily get into the mind of the Outback man. After all, he's still a guy, right? While going for a hike that afternoon, the confident contestants run into JD. He tells them that four of them will have the opportunity to have dinner with Jack that evening. The other four, however, will have the joy of preparing the meal. The trick is that the girls must catch their dinner- delicious Australian fish called Barramundi- with their bare hands. Whoever catches the most fish gets to choose three other girls to have dinner with her and Jack. The winner also gets some alone time with him. Before they begin, jack shows the girls the best way to catch fish. Apparently, very few of them are listening. The following morning, the girls gather for another elimination. The choices have gotten even more difficult, and Jack sheds a tear as he decides to send Harmonie and Shannon home. The remaining six girls begin the trek to their new campsite, knowing that the competition is only beginning.moreless

      Twelve uptown girls, four limos, and one jump out of an airplane to meet the man of their dreams. As this outrageous adventure begins, our twelve female contestants are transported in stretch limousines to a beautiful mansion in the hills of Los Angeles. They're all bubbling over with excitement, hoping to meet their bachelor and begin wining and dining to win his heart. The ladies are soon disappointed to find out that he is not there. Host JD Roberto gives them the good news: the bachelor they will be competing for is in Australia! However, the ladies have no idea where in Australia they'll have to go to find the man of their dreams. That night, host JD Roberto shows up at camp and tells Jack that he must eliminate four girls the next morning. Before elimination, each girl is given the opportunity to talk to Jack individually. They dress for success (some even donning their short skirts and high heels), and meet Jack outside of his private tent. Ten heartfelt pleas and one song (performed by bubbly Mary) later, Jack is left alone to decide which ladies to send home. The next morning, right before the vote, Marissa returns to camp. She's definitely feeling better, but still milks the attention from Jack. The other girls feel that she is using the illness to get closer to their hunky heartthrob. Before they have time to discuss the situation, the girls must pack up their stuff to either move onto the next campsite or to go home. They are all taken to the banks of the nearby river to meet their fate. Jack is obviously struggling with the decision, but decides to send Jillian, Laura, and Summer home. He does not have to choose a fourth, because Natasha decides to remove herself from the competition. With the elimination over, the eight remaining girls climb into the waiting canoes to continue their adventure.moreless
