Tour Group, Tantra? Hardly Know Ya, picked up where it left off in the episode that aired at 12 a.m. on June 1, 2016. Steven Roberts and Michael Cook broke bread with the Sri Lankan family. At first the conversation was difficult, because of the language barrier. Jetta Bates Vasilatos went and had a cocktail in Sri Lanka.

Misty Kingma and her sister, Jenna spent some time reflecting on their relationship and the trip. Jenna wanted them to spend more time together. She felt that Jared, who was now dating her sister, was getting in the way. Misty explained that her relationship with Jared was fresh and new, so they wanted to spend a lot of time together. And as a twin, Misty felt that she was in the center of someone’s attention, and she liked that, but Jenna felt that Misty was not emotionally there for her. They agreed that they were closer than they were before, however.

As the daughter of the Sri Lankan family that Steven and Michael played the piano, the traveling brothers relaxed. They chatted with the family as much as they could. Finally dinner was served, and they munched on the fish and other foods set before them. The young men had a good time eating with their hands. The mother spoke no English, but answered “no” when asked if her kids were dating. The family even had a birthday cake for Michael.

The next day, the tour group went on a yoga class. It was no ordinary yoga class, it was a tantric yoga class, which would have been fine if there were Sandhurst clones for all of the female tourists, but there was only one Sandhurst, and he had only one partner in the class. Jetta was okay, because she was with her husband, and Misty, of course, was with Jared.

Next, the travelers went to Galle, a seaside city, which is poised to be the country’s next vacation destination. Heather, Amy, Misty, and Jared were asked to stay behind because Brandon had plans for them to leave the next day to go to a tea plantation, and he wanted to tell them the news.

Heather decided that she wasn’t going to the tea plantation. She was talking to Brandon, but Jared came over to tried to convince her to go. She refused to budge.

Meanwhile at the beach, Galle had been devastated by the Tsunami, and it was amazing to see how the beach had recovered. Jay, Sandurst and Rachel learned a traditional Sri Lankan dance from a professional dancer.

Later at the resort’s pool, Sandhurst continued his antics to break the travelers out of their shells by interacting with them. Once Michelle gets a few drinks in her, she becomes sexually charged, although she behaves rather prudish when she’s sober. She felt uncomfortable doing tantric yoga.

 

The travelers who went to the tea plantation were the first foreigners to go into the plantation in seven years. That group was excited to be in the lush, green plantation. So, part of the tour group was back at the resort, having a relay race, and the other travelers were having their own race in the tea plantation. They were racing to see who can pick the most tea leaves.  Jared was amazed at Misty’s attitude. Although they worked in the hot sun, she had a smile on her face. He loved being around her.
