Throughout the week, date cards arrive for four lucky women who get a chance to ask out a man they'd like to spend time with, though it's not without causing drama.

In order to appease her, Clare decides to ask out Robert. Together they visit the ancient and majestic Tulum Ruins where they explore the historical landmark and frolic in the crystal clear ocean. Later, Sarah receives the second date card and asks out Marcus who, unbeknownst to her, may be smitten by another woman. Marcus accepts and the couple travels to Coba where they rappel into Tankah -ha Cenote, a beautiful underwater sinkhole where they share a kiss!

Together, the two head for a romantic couple massage on the beach.

Later, Ashlee finally gets her wish to take Graham on an overnight date in the state of Campeche, though Graham seems to have some reservations.

Meanwhile, Michelle, who is still anxiously waiting to make a connection, is asked out by the latest bachelor to join the house, the infamous Kalon McMahon.
