The next day, Kat wakes up, excited about her interview, but sore as heck.
Kat tells Randi that she is sore and wonders why she is not. Randi says she works out every day and is used to it. However, she is confused by Daniel wanting to get married after their third date. She says she called him a player, but he argued he is a for-realer.
Phil walks in with a book his mom read him as a child and shares memories. As he goes to the other room, the man doing the interview, Jordan Luther (Jim O’Heir) arrives. Kat says there are nine other people in Louisville with her name, the oldest being 93 and their ‘leader.’

she overdid it at the gym and he says he joined himself. She makes jokes about the Almond Attack and the interview begins with her accidentally describing herself as horny.
Later on, she retells the story to Carter (Julian Gant) and Max (Cheyenne Jackson), who tell her to ask for a new interview. She doesn’t think that will work and says they go to the same gym.
