Oh my gosh, you guys. This is it. We’re at the end.
Tim has had 13 weeks to do a LOT of serious shirtless beach thinking, and he’s narrowed the number of women he’s forcing to compete for his muscles down to two. Two.
Will he choose Anna, the lawyer from Sydney whose lipstick keeps her brain from falling out? Or will he choose Rochelle, the model from Perth who has a horrific and unforgivable beauty pageant past? Or will he decide that he actually kind of digs this competitive polygamy thing and keep them both?
Let’s find out.
Ooohhhh. We’re in Thailand. We know this because there’s lots of shots of totally authentic Thai things – monkeys eating fruit, elephants, misty mountains etc.
Obviously the final beach thinking shot needed to be at a premium because we open on a resort that has a pool that looks over the ocean. Double water = double thinking. Tim stands and contemplates life in quite a few places that show off the extensive facilities in his room.
He reminds us several times that there are two girls left etc etc he can only choose one blah blah blah. It doesn’t seem like Osher is here but maybe he left some notes for Tim to follow?
Nope. But Osher did send Tim’s family over to help him through this difficult time. We’ve got what looks like a Mum, Dad, sister and brother. They all sit down to lunch and Tim explains that the girls are different because they have different jobs. Well, to be fair Timmy, they also have different coloured hair.
Tim’s mum helpfully points out that she’s Tim’s mum: “I’m a mum. Tim’s mum,” she says. Wow, ok. Maybe she only does her best thinking by the ocean too.
Rochelle is going to meet the fam. But first, a little Rochelle package. More Thailand shots. Palm trees etc. Did I mention we’re in Thailand? Monkeys.
It looks like Rochelle may have finally figured out how this whole thing works: “I think that there’s one of us that he really likes, and one of us that he’s like, ‘oh my gosh I could be with you for the rest of my life.’”
Rochelle is really nervous to meet the parents. And rightfully so – will they bring up her pageant past? “I could potentially lose him if I don’t do a good job today.”
That’s a healthy way to start a relationship.
Tim’s dad obviously has the brains in the family when he meets Rochelle and decides that “Tim is definitely punching above his weight.”
