Packing is always a huge project for the Gosselin kids. Last season we saw Kate battle the then 10-year-olds Collin, Aaden, Hannah, Joel, Alexis, and Leah as she packed their bags on their trip to Maine. This season, the now 11-year-old sextuplets are packing their own clothes for the very first time, which comes with it’s own challenges.

Alexis had the most difficult time packing. Mady, 15, pressured her to branch out in terms of her clothing. “She wears the same clothes just over and over again…like in schedule,” explained Cara, 15, in a disparaging tone. “Alexis, you’re only bringing two pairs of shoes?” Mady asked critically. Mady was successful in getting Alexis to try on a cute white embroidered jacket, to which Alexis responded, “I look ugly!”

When they finally arrive at the beach, Kate shows off her sleek bikini body as the kids run to the water. This season Gosselin will be seen dipping her toes into the dating pool not just the ocean. She’s been linked to millionaire Jeff Prescott as well as her bodyguard Steve Neild who was cut from footage in Season 3.

Gosselin isn’t the only one who is doing some flirting this season. In this episode Mady and Cara were spotted flirting with boys on the beach. Always with some snark, Gosselin remarked that Mady, “doesn’t know what she’s doing.”

Later we see the ultra-competitive side to Kate Gosselin while she and the kids visit a recreational “escape room.” This is, according to Kate, an attempt to bring the family together as a team and work together as a team but of course the two alpha females in the group end up taking over and battling each other a bit. Mady and Kate both accuse each other of trying to take over. If they weren’t so alike I’m sure they would get along better or at least make it out of the “escape room."

Although Jon Gosselin is rarely spoken of in the series, Kate chooses to cook a successful Korean barbecue for dinner. She explains that their Korean heritage is important and uses this dinner as a means to celebrate it.
