Early the next morning, Brian and Samantha got up and got dressed for their date. Their group date was the "Ocean Date".

The ten people met at the pier for a day of fun at sea aboard the Black Swan, a replica of a pirate ship. Brian saw that he was grouped with Roxanne and Samantha. Samantha saw that Andrew was the only one on her Top Five list there.

Brian got a little awkward on this date. He knew he was out of shape and did not want to take off his shirt. Fortunately, he didn't have to. Samantha was not as uncomfortable, but still chose to dress to her style.

The tour started with a mock attack on Fort James. After the battle, everyone was made to walk the plank. Once they reached shore, they had a choice of snorkeling or searching for hidden treasure.

Brian tried to spend time with Roxanne, but she was interested in someone else. Samantha tried to spend time with Andrew, but the more she got to know him, the more she regretted choosing him. Samantha was then surprised when Brian wanted to start talking to her while treasure hunting. The conversation started as they both reached for the same doubloon. The two of them felt an instant connection.

An hour later, they all went back to the boat for lunch. He pulled out her chair at lunch. Midway through the meal, she leaned over and whispered in his ear, "I really wish I had chosen you now."

Brian's heart dropped, but he didn't want to stop the fun they were having because she didn't choose him. They just enjoyed the moment.

The ride back was full of dancing to calypso music. Samantha even won the limbo contest.

Around four o'clock, the boat pulled up to the pier. Brian helped Samantha out of the boat. She slipped him her phone number out of sight of the cameras. They spent another hour just talking. Just because she couldn't chose him on the island didn't mean she couldn't choose him after they left.

When Brian got to the room, he saw a note on the pillow. "Dinner at seven o'clock. Dress formal." He relaxed for a half hour, showered, got dressed, and went to the ballroom for dinner.

Everyone there was dressed to the nines. No special seating arrangement this time. Samantha sat next to Brian. At the end of the meal, Austin came in with a disappointed look on his face.

"How were everyone's dates today? Great. Well, there is another group date tomorrow. The groups will change. The date will change. However, for one of you, the journey is over."
