Each week, Quartship contestants come prepared with their “approach” — a 60-second presentation meant to show their social media crush why that man is a perfect choice for a virtual date.

This episode's competitors were entrepreneur and poker player Brandon McDowell (@4_datwayb), former Seattle Seahawks NFL player and financial advisor Kristjan Sokoli (@kristjan90), and creative artist and Ivory Coast native Jean Baptiste Amemou (@jeanbaptiste13).

Brandon McDowell went first. With a video in which he climbed a high fence to a closed track to both display his fitness and show that nothing would stop him from supporting Arryana’s athletic accomplishments, he scored an 8.7. Next, Kristjan presented a visual story of his activities and accomplishments, earning a 7.3. Lastly, Jean Baptiste surprised his crush with an artistic yellow flower collage, earning a 7.7.

Brandon's fence stunt paid off, as his was the winning score.
