    Scoring notes:

    Because there was no ambulance seen, Sarah was not penalized for having an ambulance called as there is no way to distinguish on-site medics from outside emergency personnel.

    While Serena P. moved forward during rose ceremony 2, she was not shown receiving a rose during the actual episode (this week or last), so she does not get points for receiving a rose.

    While Katie did ask to take her time back from Sarah during the group date, she did not ask to “steal” Matt and so did not get points for “contestant asks if they can ‘steal’ Matt away from another contestant”

    Mistakenly, the “date includes animals” rule did not make it in this season. We are heartbroken. We cannot change rules mid-season, but this will be re-added to future seasons.

    Serena P. says “I could see myself potentially falling in love with you,” which does not count for “I am falling in love with you/him/Matt” points.

    We saw Rachael open the date card, but did not hear her read the date card, so she was not awarded points.

    Scoring updates:

    1/19

    • Kit was given +5 points for her jump and straddle hug at the beginning of the group date
