This has Nikki totally ticked because she previously saved the Kip-man from elimination. Next up is Kovacs. We are fools to think that he may actually ditch the girl who has put him on the chopping block multiple times. Love conquers all though and Kovacs chooses Elizabeth. Beck has history with Natalie and Peyton. But he doesn't know about the secret relationship between Natalie and Dave. Natalie was afraid Beck would pick her, but he ultimately chooses Peyton.
