I Wanna Marry "Harry" star Matthew Hicks, who looks remarkably like Prince Harry, eliminated Andrea Fox from the competition and escalated Kimberly Birch to the crown suite during Tuesday night's Fox broadcast of the new reality dating show's second episode.
Matthew decided to ask Andrea -- a 25-year-old technology sales representative from Long View, TX, who currently resides in Plano, TX -- to leave the estate because they were missing a real vibe or connection.
Matthew also granted Kimberly, a 24-year-old social worker from Long Island, NY, the key to the crown suite because his attraction to her was growing and she had been very sporty during a friendly game of Cricket.
The second episode of I Wanna Marry "Harry," a new reality dating series in which a group of women attempt to win the heart of an average English bloke impersonating Prince Harry, began with the 11 remaining women starting to question who Matthew really is. They bounced around ideas about whether he might actually be Prince Harry or at least from a royal bloodline.
Rose Copeland -- a 23-year-old preschool teacher from Westlake Village, CA, who currently resides in Studio City, CA -- got the day's only one-on-one date with Matthew. They had breakfast together in her suite, took a helicopter ride to a private beach and then shared a romantic lunch on the sand.
Rose was very inquisitive, asking Matt many questions about his background. Matthew didn't want to lay all his cards out on the table so he just continued to plant seeds in her mind that he may be Prince Harry. Matthew said Rose was being treated like royalty because he was a royal taking her out on a date. He also said he's in the military and has a brother several years older than him.
Rose assumed Matthew had to be someone important, especially because security guards surrounded them on their date. The pair then flirted in the water and shared their first kiss.
After his date with Rose, Matthew pulled Kimberly aside for a chat. In the middle of their conversation, "Harry" got whisked away by security guards in order to get the girls gossiping. They all started thinking maybe he was a duke or a lord if not Prince Harry himself.
Later on, Matthew stole Karina Kennedy -- a 25-year-old physical therapist from Palos Hills, IL, who currently resides in Chicago, IL -- away for some alone time. He thought she was beautiful and had a "twinkle in her eye" that drew him in. They both admitted in confessionals they felt chemistry.
Matthew also got to know Jacqueline Conroy -- a 25-year-old nutritionist from Long Island, NY, who currently resides in New York, NY -- a little better. He was getting the impression she was a "look at me type of girl." Jacqueline said she was a "wild child" and got in trouble a lot. Matthew was hoping there was more to her than that, as he admitted he likes girls who can be mischievous at times.
Everyone was then invited to a formal dinner after which one girl would win a night in the crown suite and one would get sent home. After dinner, Matthew asked to see Kimberly and Andrea in private and revealed his decision.
