The One Where Jules Wants Grayson To Find Her Attractive..., 6 December 2014
Author: Taylor Kingston from Australia

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I love this episode. As the season grows, so do the episodes. In entertainment, quality and of course, laughs. It's a great episode and a great watch.

In this episode, Jules really, really wants Grayson to find her attractive. To make her feel good about herself. After all, all she sees leave his house are twenty-two year olds. That's got to hurt. She constantly dresses up. At one point she was wearing heels, a fancy dress and had her full hair and make up done, at 7AM. Then she went to take the garbage out and when she tossed it over her head, the bag broke and covered her in garbage. Poor, Jules. Meanwhile, Ellie is worried that because now she's a mother, that her friends don't see her the way they used to. And only as a mother.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
