Hope They Didn’t Stick to the Seats: Chris and six gorgeous women strip down to sexy swimsuits for a rooftop pool party. The competition heats up as the ladies race tractors on the streets of Los Angeles. They are all still in their bikinis, so hopefully those tractors didn’t have leather seats. The top tractor girl in town turns out to be Ashley I, but Mackenzie gets a one-on-one date and a rose at the end of the day.
A Grand Gesture: Megan initially believes the date card she gets from Chris is just a little love note. She’s shocked to learn that she’ll actually be going out with him.
