"I get to bake? Awesome!" Atlanta-based athletic coach Ryan, 31, says in the preview clip above. "You don't watch The Bachelor and think that you're going to be cooking, but I'm willing to do just about anything for Emily."

The best part of their domestic one-on-one date? Macho man Ryan donned a frilly patterned apron for the cooking session. "It doesn't have room for 'man chest,'" he lamented as he helped Maynard stir in chocolate chips for the cookies.

"We're hanging out in her kitchen and I'm thinking that this is exactly what life could be like if I was a part of her life," he later reasoned. "I could step in and be a part of what she does every day. There's romance in that."

For her part, Maynard, who'll go on another date with Ryan to an Italian restaurant and Gloriana concert later this season, seemed impressed with the way he handled himself around the kitchen.

Says the reality star: "It's too soon to tell how Ryan would treat me and how he'd be in a marriage, but he totally passed the cookie test!"
