The First Elimination Day rules called for him to have a friendly chat with each bachelorette until they were having a "socialable" conversation. He was eager to find out what interested his ladies.
"Look, now's not the best time," she told him.
But, Gio hunkered down and decided to see the conversation through, hoping for the best.
Gio frowned. "But, if you..."
He turned towards the bar area and found Jasmin.
"Is she drinking again?" Staci muttered under her breath.
Dominique bit her lip. "Uh..." she hedged, not really knowing what to say. "I think DeDe is still sleeping..."
Ariel dropped her head into her hands. "Oh Plumbbob. I am totally going home!" she complained to Dominique. She'd missed the challenge yesterday and then peed on the bachelor today. "Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!"
"Well excuuuuuuuuse me!" Ariel said, rolling her eyes. "At least you got to talk to him," she added sullenly. She glanced over towards Gio and Dominique to gauge how their conversation was going.
"HMPH!" she replied, stalking off and leaving him on his own.
"Guys! Let's not fight!" Jasmin said nervously.
After the chats were done, the girls rushed upstairs to prepare for the rose ceremony. Nervously, they held their breaths, waiting to see what would happen.
"You ladies both stand in front of me tonight because I felt like it was hard to communicate..."
He paused and glanced back and forth between the two lovely ladies. "So? Who goes home?"
(Ah HA! This clinches it! Staci must be Brooding!)
