Episode 5 (airing February 3rd): Da Nang, Vietnam (11 to 8
1-on-1 date: Renee Oteri. She got fitted for a custom dress, went shopping, and they walked around town before having dinner. Apparently Renee was one of the last people to kiss Juan Pablo out of respect for her son, so I don’t think there was any making out on this date. Renee got a rose.
Group Date: 9 girls (Sharleen, Kelly, Kat, Alli, Danielle, Clare, Chelsie, Andi, and Cassandra) went paddling rice boats down a river, and ended up at a Vietnamese family’s house, where they made their own dinner. After dinner, they rode water buffaloes. Clare got the group date rose.
1-on-1 date: Nikki Ferrell. They went cave diving then had dinner in a cave. Nikki got a rose.

1-on-1 date: Andi Dorfman. They went walking through canyons with waterfalls and thermal springs then had dinner by a geyser. Andi got a rose.
Group Date: 6 girls (Kat, Cassandra, Nikki, Chelsie, Sharleen, and Renee) had a picnic, played rugby, then went zorbing. I didn’t know what that was either, so I googled it. Yep, they rolled down hills in giant balls.
They had their after party at the Lord of the Rings house. During this after party, JP pulled Cassandra aside and eliminated her. How nice of him to look out for her considering it was also Cassandra’s birthday that day. Happy Birthday, Cassandra! Now go home! Sharleen got the group date rose.

Rose Ceremony Eliminations: Kat Hurd. Cassandra sent home on group date.

Once JP was back from his date with Nikki, Sharleen showed up to his hotel room and tells JP she’s not feeling strongly about him so she eliminates herself.
Group Date: The 4 of them (Andi, Chelsie, Renee, and Clare) took a prop plane to a private island. Andi got the group date rose and got to continue on where they watched a musical performance.
