Things come to a head in the Last Chance for Love "promise ceremony" when the big deception is finally revealed.

  • The suitors are told to choose who they believe among them is least compatible with Austin and with Piper. Gerald is chosen least compatible with Piper and Eleanor is chosen least compatible with Austin.

As such, weepy Eleanor loses her alone-time to Ingrid. The suitors all take part in a game called Love is a Battlefield in which they must perform better than models at outrageous tasks for trips.

The Pearl Necklace Eviction Ceremony is left in a cliffhanger.
