  Tonight, an introverted artist is looking for a muse, and the most outrageous contestant in Love Connection history...

First up, let's meet Susan, a 43-year-old realtor from Smyrna, GA, who says what's on her mind. She has two grown children who are very reserved... unlike her. She's looking for someone who can handle her when she's not on a "sober date". Her three, with scores on first impressions (his score on her/her score on him):
- Shaun "Big Johnson": 39-year-old house flipper form Kennesaw, GA who looks like a biker but is actually a loveable huggable teddy bear. (8/3)
- Troy: 43-year-old sales account executive from Cumming, GA, he says he's a homebody who loves huge... personalities. His vice: Pac-Man. (8/3)
- Kristian: 45-year-old digital technical company CEO from Atlanta whose #1 priority is being a good dad to his daughter (7/9)

So the incredibly picky Susan seemed to like Kristian, but who did she pick? Of course KRISTIAN! Who did the audience go with? They went with... KRISTIAN! It's a $10,000 Love Connection! 

Next up, here's CARY, a 28-year-old graphic designer from Culver City who has terminal shyness, especially when it comes to the opposite sex. He wants a girl who can share a bunch of nerdy experiences with. His three, with scores on first impressions (her score on him/his score on her):
- Sasha: 29-year-old personal chef from Los Angeles who loves to eat. If she makes it to date #4 she's in love with you (6/10)
- Aubrey: 36-year-old marketing director from Playa del Rey, CA, who's also a chakra dancer. She wants a man whose open to anything (8/8)
- Lindsay: 27-year-old men's stylist from Hermosa Beach who's really vocal about two of her main assets. Her impressive... lung capacity. (3/10)

Cary may have found simpatico with Aubrey, but he picked SASHA.  The audience is happy... wonder why... because they agreed. Enjoy the date and the $10,000.

The after-show...
- Sasha & Cary have found it hard to get together due to work schedule, but they've made a big connection otherwise and they've been texting back and forth.
- Susan & Kristian continue to date back in Atlanta, but after a long chat, they were better friends than anything else.

  Erin & Rachael Watson are sisters from Ashburn, VA. Erin raises awareness about the importance of organ donation, while Rachael started a nonprofit benefiting starving kids in Africa. Hopefully the money they win at the Wall will do a world of good.

After Free Fall, they have a bank of $115,024! That's the least they can walk away with, and as Rachael heads to isolation, it's time to find out the most.

ROUND 2: Freebies drop from #6 and #7, giving her another $2 for a total of $115,026.

- Q1 (5): a) 16 fl. oz. b) 20 fl. oz. c) 24 fl. oz: if Ariana Grande ordered a Grande drip coffee at Starbucks, how many fluid ounces should be in her beverage according to the company's official website? They go with 16... and they win another $25,000!
- Q2 (DOUBLE 6): a) a brain b) a heart c) courage: In "The Wizard of Oz", the first character that joined Dorothy & Toto on their travels along the Yellow Brick Road went to see the Wizard because he wanted what? She picks a brain... RIGHT for $200 more.
- Q3 (TRIPLE 2): a) Whammer b) Jammer c) Slammer: In the sport of roller derby, which of these is a name given to the player who scores points by lapping members of the opposing team? She picks B... and she's right for another $110,001, giving the Wall a total of $250,227!

But the Wall gives, and the Wall takes away. The Reds give up... $250,001, giving them a total of $226. Better than nothing.

ROUND 3: Free Greens go in #2, #3, #5, and #7... $1... $1... $100... and $400,000 for a total of $400,328.
- Q1 (7): a) Nile b) Zambezi c) Congo d) Niger: More than a mile wide and over 300 feet tall, the beautiful Victoria Falls can be found on which of these rivers? She picks B... RIGHT for $10 more.
- Q2 (DOUBLE 4): a) North b) South c) East d) West: At the Chinese imperial palace complex known as "The Forbidden City" in Beijing, the most important buildings were intentionally built facing which direction? She goes with C... First miss of the game, it's B. So they lose... $110.
- Q3 (TRIPLE 1): a) Abode of snow b) Daunting rock c) Mother of peaks d) World bridge: The Himalayas rise to over 29,000 feet at Mount Everest and stretch over several countries. The name Himalaya comes from Sanskrit words that translate to which of these? She tries D... but it was A. They lose... $400,101 for a take of $127.

The contract is for $195,026 - the original $115,026 plus $20,000 for each correct answer. It's jet-tubed to Rachael before we drop these Reds...
- #2: $100,000

No point in dropping the others. It's this simple: sign the contract or leave with nothing. Rachael... rips up the contract.
