Jack takes the remaining glamor girls canoeing, bumbling in pairs and scared of everything even before the water gets wild. He dives in to rescue them then walks "on point" through crocodile infested water. He shows the hens Sharon's 'chook farm'. Bare-hand fishing determines who dines with him and three others, the rest gut the fish. Marissa cheats, so despite loosing she gets a kiss too. After campfire interviews, only six may stay.

JD tells them they must vote one out behind Jack's back- Marissa knows that must mean her.

Then JD announces a luxury trip to Perth, with one drawback: Jack must send another girl home before suffering the fashionistas' dream-life.

Before Perth, Jack must eliminate - not newcomer Mer-Di, but, unromantic Adrienne. A limousine drives them to luxury hotel suites, the girls' heaven. For Jack a make-over is hell, especially when they drag him to the spa, only the painful waxing he takes without complaint. Maria sneaks into Jack's suite. Each girl gets a private date, some intimacy, Natalie even his trophy necklace. None of the four accepts a two weeks stay as step-out bonus, so Jack must eliminate again - exit Courtney. Back in bug camp, JD presents the boomerang: Marissa is back!
