Part 2 summary:
The four couples continue with the last leg of the teamwork challenge. After purchasing food at the market, the teams return to The House to cook their meal. Team One again finishes first, while Team Two doesn’t even try, complaining about the unfairness of the game. Steve accuses Team One of cheating, which angers Lacey, who hates sore losers. After Stephanie brings up Scott’s questionable tactics in the Hitched or Ditched game, Scott apologizes for cheating.
Since the women complain that their fiancés don’t pay enough attention to them, Dr. Phil invites some good-looking gentlemen to the house to shower the women with attention. While each woman has a one-on-one talk with an attractive stranger, the men secretly watch. All the women except Lilly don’t hold back, telling the complete strangers the good, the bad and the ugly about their relationships. While Scott, Steve and Kalin confront their fiancées about what they revealed to the stranger, Tim and Lilly feel out of place, thinking their problems are minute compared to the others’.
Dr. Phil has another meeting with the couples, and again asks them to stand up if they think they should get married. This time, only Tim, Lilly and Stephanie stand. Dr. Phil confronts Kalin about his anger and Lacey about her willingness to stay in an abusive relationship. Kalin admits that he needs help and says he doesn’t want to be a monster. Dr. Phil tells Steve that if he marries Stephanie, she will make him miserable for the rest of his life. Stephanie agrees, and Dr. Phil points out that Steve just might be a nice guy who happens to love her. Will she stop trying to control him? Then, Scott asks Dr. Phil about how to deal with anxiety and depression, and Dr. Phil offers to help him obtain a proper evaluation and diagnosis. A grateful Scott and Lisa cry and hug each other. And, although Lilly and Tim think they don’t fit in with the other members of the house, Dr. Phil assures them that they have a lot of work to do as well to be ready for marriage. He asks all the couples to think about whether they have realistic expectations, and tells them that they are all guilty of contaminating their relationships.
Since money is the leading cause of divorce, Dr. Phil sets the couples up with money expert Marilyn Logan, who quizzes them about how well they know their partner’s financial situation. The couples answer truthfully, but Lisa again embarrasses Scott by laying out all his financial missteps in sarcastic detail. At the end, Marilyn deems Tim and Lilly the winners of $20,000 from LowerMyBills.com.
