I Wanna Marry "Harry" star Matthew Hicks, who looks remarkably like Prince Harry, eliminated Carley Hawkins from the competition and elevated Karina Kennedy to the crown suite during Tuesday night's Fox broadcast of the new reality dating show's third episode.
Matthew decided to ask Carley -- a 24-year-old student from Buffalo, MO, who currently resides in Phoenix, AZ -- to leave the estate because they hadn't gotten to know one another very well at all.
Matthew also granted Karina -- a 25-year-old physical therapist from Palos Hills, IL, who currently resides in Chicago, IL -- the key to the crown suite because he thought she was "beautiful, exotic and fascinating." She caught Matthew's eye right off the bat and told him that she liked him for who he is, not what he does.
The third 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 Kimberly Birch, a 24-year-old social worker from Long Island, NY, enjoying her limited time in the crown suite.
Matthew took Kimberly on a hot air balloon ride and then treated her to a little picnic. She had her guard up a little bit on the date and was shocked when a paparazzo interrupted their alone time to take photos. Kimberly assumed he had to be someone important and she'd probably end up in a magazine.
The mock prince then spent time with three girls he hadn't gotten to know very well -- Kelley Andrews, a 25-year-old restaurant hostess from Mobile, AL who currently resides in New York, NY; Jacqueline Conroy, a 25-year-old nutritionist from Long Island, NY who currently resides in New York, NY; and Maggie Toraason, a 25-year-old beverage sales representative from Peru, IL who currently resides in Chicago, IL.
The group went boating and the girls had a lot of questions for "Prince Harry." Kelley was especially convinced he was the Prince of Wales.
Afterward, Matthew and all the girls had some fun at a pool party. He said it was like walking into heaven because the girls would be out of his league in real life. He then spent some alone time in a hot tub with Meghan Jones, a 26-year-old artist from Tustin, CA, who currently resides in Dallas, TX. They shared their first kiss, which Maggie didn't approve of.
Karina hopped in the hot tub next and had a nice talk with Matthew. He thought she was "lovely" and couldn't wait to spend more time with her.
