Episode 2: (20 contestants down to 17)
1-on-1 date: Ashley Hebert. They created an amusement park for them. She is the girl Brad is kissing on the Ferris wheel in the promo. She gets a rose. Interesting note about this date: It actually took place on Monday night, September 27th after Brad had made his appearance on “Dancing with the Stars” earlier in the night.
Group date: American Red Cross PSA. Brad and the girls film a bunch of PSA’s about giving blood. In one of the scenes, he’s having a 3-some (sort of), with Britt and Chantal, as they each take turns making out with him. Melissa interrupts this 3-some to get some action of her own and starts making out with Brad as well. The day of this group date was Michelle’s birthday. She isn’t really thrilled with the way Brad is tonguing down everyone on set, so she doesn’t participate and leaves. Brad ends up finding her, and Michelle gets the rose. Hey, when in doubt, start pouting and Brad will come to your rescue with a rose. I think we can officially label Michelle as the “girl who doesn’t like Brad kissing other girls” girl.

1-on-1: Jackie Gordon. They go to a spa, then he has her pick out dress and jewelry and they get private concert from Train. Oh God. We have to hear THAT song again. “Hey, Heeeey-aaaaaaa-aaaaaa-aaaaaa-uhhhhhh. Your lip-stick staaaaaaaaains. On the front lobe of my left side braaaaaaaaaaains.” Have fun trying to get that song out of your head for the rest of the day. Someone shoot me now. As if that song wasn’t in every other commercial already. Jackie gets a rose.
