First aired on August 16, 2009

Antonio swims ashore to the rapturous delight of his beautiful love prospects on the Big Island beach. After a shocking dismissal of one woman upon meeting who he didn't like her hands and feet as the reason to dismiss her, the ladies must make the arduous climb up Mount Pu' U' in a show of determination for Antonio.[14][15]

After the date, Tully tells Jessica that she's too young for Antonio, and she lashes back and points out that Tully still lives in her parents and does not have a job. Miranda has not spent time with Antonio due to a allergic reaction to a spider bite, and the girls ponder why she's so confident that she's staying since she never spends time with Antonio.

Controversies

In the cast photos, there is a girl named Lynette standing to the right of Brooke. Lynette was named a contestant when My Antonio was announced on VH1.com, however she has since been removed from the Cast Bios and the cast picture. She does not appear anywhere in the show and isn't even mentioned [18], although you can see her twice in the opening credits.
