And then there were two… we’re down to Brooke and Christa who are told that since Matt has to work the farm all morning, they get to play life for a day and do chores. He gives them each a list, and sends them off. What does a country wife do? Apparently, catch chicken, pick up car parts, grocery shopping, trips to the taxidermist, tractor parts, horsefeed and picking up pies. Yum.
Christa makes things awkward at the local store by asking for condoms while buying some ugly sunglasses for Matt, then continues the trend by getting horse feed for “pleasure horses because who doesn’t love pleasure?” Ok then. Christa makes it back first, to find MAtt waiting with lunch, while Brooke is trapped by the passing train, but gets points for getting the right part though she hadn’t been told which one to get by Matt.
Each girl gets a private one on one date – and Brooke only gets 30 minutes to get ready. Matt takes her out four-wheeling because he sees her as more the outdoorsey type – good call, as they get all smoochy and loveydovy even though Brooke doesn’t tell him she loves him.
Christa has had 4 hours to get ready, and is picked up on a horse-drawn carriage and Brook instantly thinks she’s blown it and it’s all over and she’s pretty upset. Christa is taken to Matt’s house, where they have dinner and she makes 80293483 references to how nice a ring would look on her finger. OK, it was only one, but COME ON, doesn’t she know better? Really? They make out, and he takes her back where she promptly tells Brooke they made out and Brooke is even more convinced she’s toast.
The next day the girls get all dressed up and the whole town shows up outside. Matt tells makes a rather awkward little speech (including saying “Christa is ready to do it anytime” which isn’t what he meant at all, but is actually a completely real representation of the Christa we’ve come to know..) and lets them know a crop duster will fly by with the banner that declares his love for the winner, and who he’s picked as his wife.
The women are about to cry, Brooke looks like she wants to throw up, and the banner comes around and it’s BROOKE! Nice job editing team – I totally thought it’d be Christa! But nope, it’s Brooke and after a tearful goodbye to Christa, she and Matt ride off into the sunset on that red tractor.
Buddy TV reports that Brooke and Matt are still together, that they haven’t been able to be seen in public this whole time so aren’t getting married tomorrow or anything. Brooke is moving out there to be near him in a few days, and they’ll date and see where it takes them. Congrats and best wishes, Matt and Brooke!
