Joining DeAnna on the opener is fellow finalist Jenni Croft, who helps DeAnna sift through the 25 candidates before she eliminates 10 of them in the first rose ceremony. But first, DeAnna must hand out three "first impression" roses, and her first one is literally that. Then DeAnna and Graham go to a beach for sun, surf and serious talk.
As for the other 14, DeAnna takes half to Hollywood's Magic Castle and the rest to Dodger Stadium for baseball swatting, national-anthem mangling and tips on love from Tommy Lasorda. Later, there's a push-up contest, and at the rose ceremony, three must go.
And 10 accompany DeAnna to a dude ranch, where Jeremy and Ron get into an argument. DeAnna also has two one-on-one dates: Six of the others accompany DeAnna to the California Speedway, where everyone gets behind the wheel, then Robert and Fred get a home-cooked meal with one getting a rose after dessert. And following the rose-ceremony pruning, six guys are left standing.

There are declarations of love and commitment galore, but she must say good-bye to one guy at the rose ceremony. As for the other two, they'll prepare for a trip to Georgia to meet DeAnna's family. The guys also predict which of the two finalists will succeed where they have failed.
Rounding out the hour: Island activities include a seaplane ride and scuba diving near sharks, but the guys are probably more concerned about their encounters with DeAnna's dad.
