RECAP: The Bachelorette S2E4 - Golden date card fun

SO AFTER complaining last night that she feels like "the girl who gave you my number and you never called", Georgia gets her wish.

Courtney is using his golden date card.

He's got a cute blue kombi van and has got a trick up his sleeve to impress the girl of the hour.

He left the guys a present - the group date card - and he heads off to pick her up.

So apparently where they are is in Courtney's "hood". Who actually says that these days? Really, Courtney, really. 

He took her to where he used to go hang out.

Skurfing.  WHAT THE HELL IS THAT. Oh okay, so it's basically like wake boarding. That sounds fun.

They take off on the boat, the rain keeps pelting down and they head off on their adventure.

I hope this crappy weather isn't foreshadowing how this date is going to end up. 

The guys perform their group date ritual again - Tommy, Ryan, Matt, Cameron, Jake and Clancy - they literally cheer at each other for getting picked on the date. Is this going to happen every episode?

Sam whinges again: "Georgia didn't choose you so I'm not worried".

Courtney shows off his skurfing skills and Georgia can't stop laughing. That does look pretty cool though. I don't think I'm coordinated enough to do that.

Georgia's turn now and Courtney hands out some pointers.

And she's gone. Take two. Take three. Who knows what number take this is. Come on girl, you can do it!

Okay, so we don't know whether she actually did it or not. But she tried. That's the main thing.

Then he's brought her to the waterfront café - he used to have coffee with his parents there.

So, fish and chips, wine and a great view.

And there's one more surprised. ANOTHER TREASURE CHEST. But this one is full of dress ups. Pirate themes.

She looks adorable in her pirate outfit.

Kind of a weird thing to pull out on a first date, but Georgia says "he really understands me".

He confesses that it's been at least five years since he's been on a first date. Tells her about his ONE girlfriend. And he says yes, he wants girlfriend number two to be THE ONE.

Well der, Georgia, what other answer were you going to expect? YOU'RE ON A DATING SHOW.

She says she's willing to give up her job for a relationship. WHY. YOU CAN HAVE BOTH. Don't be that girl who gives up EVERYTHING.

Oh, she pulls out a rose.

But uh oh. He just gave her a hug and she wanted kisses. That's a red flag. Why wouldn't you kiss her you idiot?

Aw, he's shy. Well, he's going to have to get over that if he's on national television.


"Crappy car racing".

That's what Courtney and his friends used to do. He wants to pick an activity that shows him more about her.

So looks like they're going billy cart riding.

Courtney's picking teams - Georgia and Courtney (he's choosing her 'purely' because she's the lightest), Jake and Clancy, Ryan and Cameron and Matt and Tommy.

Inside the warehouse there's four piles of stuff needed to make a working billy cart. So it's kind of like Ikea.

So at the end of the date, there's more alone time with Georgia. That must be a thing for each group date.

So Georgia helps Courtney put the cart together and they're having heaps of fun.

Poor Clancy and Jake are struggling. And here's the arguments. Haha, it really is like couples building Ikea.

All the other guys finish and poor Jake isn't having a bar of it. But they manage to build it so they're still in the race.

Race time. One pushes, one steers and they have to do three laps, swapping over each lap.

Ready, set… go.

Georgia and Courtney are in the lead and poor Jake and Clancy are struggling behind.

First changeovers Courtney sabotages Cameron and Ryan. I suppose, it's his date, he may as well win?

Wow, Jake, you need to get back to the gym buddy.

Georgia and Courtney run into a spot of trouble with their wheel, but they're soon back on track.

But oh blue team wins! I didn't even know they were in the lead.

Clancy and Jake finally make it across the line. Aw, well at least they tried.

So now it's the one on one time. But apparently Courtney gets to decide who she gets to spend with. That's a bit rigged. Oh - he gave it to Tommy.


Does this mean that he's not really into her? That's so weird.

She's a bit disappointed, but kudos to him for picking someone else. It's very gallant, as Georgia says.

So Tommy and Georgia get their alone time. Sit on the couch and chat. That's literally what all of these dates are really. Wine and chats. He gushes that he gets nervous around "beautiful women".

He's been in the army for seven years, but is scared of being vulnerable and falling in love. Awwww.

He was in love 11 years ago - wow that's a long time ago.

Long distance relationship that doesn't make it. Oh, he's talking about the L word - and he's not just going to throw it around willy nilly.

Girl, they're all here for the "right" reasons. Why else are they there? I suppose, for their 15 minutes of fame, but really. It's love they want, nothing else!


So Jake and Sam have a top secret "thing" planned. What are they up to? Apparently last three nights they've gone MIA.

Rhys seems to have some more poems too. God have mercy.

Enter Georgia.

She says hello and Matt steals her away. Oh my god they seem to be playing charades. What a random thing to do.

This show is so weird.

Jake and Sam go away to get whatever they want to do and look crazy nervous.

Georgia gets Courtney and poor Mr May is jealous. COME ON GEORGIA, TAKE MR MAY.

She asks him about why he didn't choose himself about the date. He said he didn't want to be unfair and that they all deserve a chance.

Oh my god what is he doing? Is he trying to sabotage himself? Noble intentions and all but really, this is a competition.

Oh, now we get to find out what Jake and Sam have planned.

They pull out a table and a dish thing. Sam lifts the lid and it's a ball desert thing. They spent a WEEK on it. A WEEK. So they try and pour something out of the spout and it's not working.

And it works! They try and melt the chocolate ball thing and there's something inside. They're so proud of themselves.

That's pretty cool though.

Rhys is jealous - he says the gimmicky stuff isn't for him. Really Rhys, really?


Righto, how many dudes are going home tonight? Just one. Which boring dude who we don't know anything about will it be?



If Cameron's gone, that's it, I'm done with this show. I'm sorry Tommy, but Mr May is better than you.


Don't you ever pull a move like that EVER again Georgia. Not cool girl.

She takes him outside for a chat. Says that she doesn't think she's the right one for him but knows he will find someone.

That's kind of nice.

Aw, he just wants her to find someone to make her happy.
