while. >> that's how we roll. >> stanley, i love you. >> aah. so this is something we love, too. some somebody -- when somebody comes back and is reunited with their family. >> if you wanted to find true love, this is it right here. so a 7-year-old, alex, from dad. he's been deployed in the navy for 99 days. him up. take a look at what happened. >> i don't know if you're ready to hear it. >> what? he's coming home? >> i don't know. what do you think? >> no. >> what do you think he has to tell you? >> i don't know. >> you don't know? if you can think of one surprise in the whole world, what would it be?
>> daddy's home. >> what did he say? >> oh, my gosh. i've seen it three times and it still gets to me. >> like getting under the covers with twinkies and sobbing. isn't it? what kind. >> my daddy was a chief petty officer. and you know what i love so much, the kid didn't even talk. he's just -- he clung for taker -- clung for dear life. just precious. >> beautiful. >> so we'll put you in a good mood. if you happen to be in -- >> that put me in a good mood.

you for a while, as well. >> i love you. >> i love you, too. >> that's crazy. >> okay. so super cute, but there are two other girls still left. so then he had to go on a date the next day with jojo, knowing he told another girl he loved her. so let's look at her date. >> i do love you, and that's weird that i just said that because i've been so terrified about saying that. i don't want to think about what it would be like to lose you. >> jojo, i love you, too. >> what?
>> are you allowed to say that? >> today is the best day of my life. i'm so happy. i'm really happy. >> i don't know how you can be in love with two women, but i am. >> still one to go? >> no, no, no. we need to marinate that for a second. what just happened? >> i'm happy that -- chris harrison said the shou -- show applauds him for living in the moment. to be devastated. first time ever. >> does he want america to hate him? >> and jojo is the one with the >> oh, i love the brothers. >> they will beat him up. >> did he say it again, is there a third person? >> here is the third girl. he did send her home. she didn't make it. he did not say he loves her. so she gets in the car. but what i liked about her,
and she got back out of the car and confronts him and says did you know this whole time? because this is the fantasy suite episode. so who knows what happened in the fantasy suite. >> is that the end-end? >> and she cried her way home. so we're down to the two girls. who do you think he's going to pick? >> well, i don't even like him >> when you hear him talk, he like puts her on a pedestal where he always talks about her saying she lets me be myself. >> he kissed her ring finger. isn't that what he did? >> please don't tell me you're paying that close attention. >> suddenly because i don't like him now after he said "i love you" to two girls. >> have you ever been in love with two people at the same time? >> no i have not. >> is it possible? >> he says it's possible. >> i think there is lust at the same time, but i don't think there is love. >> i've been in lust with two

>> and justify them. >> yeah, and justify them. and then you're like, all of a position. but i think what people know about harley already is that she's trying. >> yeah. >> always trying to do the right thing and sometimes we just don't. >> and with everything on your plate, when you found out this was picked up for a second season, which was reason to celebrate -- were you exhausted?

changed from your mom's recipe? >> i did the brown butter and put the cashews in it and i put the salt in it and renamed it. >> oh. >> so what you do, now, can you try one or no? >> yes. >> and i know you're not eating -- >> i'm not eating sweets right now, but for you -- i'm gonna make an exception. >> take a little bite. they're so amazing. it's a little crunchy on the outside and that's what you get with the two sugars. with the brown butter, you get the nuttiness and salted cashews. >> so good. >> if you're only going to have one sweet in your life today, this is the one to have. it's delicious. >> it's two sweets. it's the cookie and ryan. >> aaaw. >> 8 to 10 minutes at 350 degrees. >> for this recipe and more, tweet us. >> love you, babe. if you think we're cooking now, see what we have cooked up for our giveaway. >> almost spanky time.
