Maria exuded confidence when she stepped out of a limo on Night 1 and told Joey that while she lives in Canada, she "could change that" for him.
Maria also dropped jaws when she changed into a sexy, lace black outfit during a group date. She was essentially wearing a black bra, and Joey appeared very surprised.
"I swear I'm not trying to seduce you," Maria told Joey.
Joey said there was something special about Maria that he couldn't get out of his head and he wanted to learn more about her. However, Joey couldn't help himself, and so instead of talking, he decided to kiss the bachelorette.
