Poor Gwen Gioia. She left her heart in San Francisco after The Bachelor's Aaron took her on a dream date there then rejected her in last week's rose ceremony. Ouch! But despite their evening in the "fantasy suite," Gwen left with her virtue intact. Translation: No sex!
"I was nervous," the 31-year-old Philadelphia, Pa., native tells TV Guide Online. "I was afraid the cameras would make it look like we were hooking up, when we weren't. I was just looking forward to spending time with him and getting to know him better."
The way Aaron's hot tub make-out sessions looked, you'd guess he got to know his trio of finalists very well. However, Gwen insists they never had intimate relations and not just for fear that Big Brother was watching. "Whether [viewers at home] could see it or not, I wouldn't let anything happen," she says.

Halloween 2002 is dead and buried, but Buffy the Vampire Slayer is still digging up cemetery plots: In tonight's installment (airing at 8 ET on UPN), "polterguest star" Kristine Sutherland returns as Joyce Summers, the dearly departed mother of the Chosen One and her kid sister, Dawn. "It's a very scary episode," the actress tells TV Guide Online. "Something very, very dark and evil takes Dawn for quite a scary ride. In the end, she sort of calls on the forces that love her, and her mother appears."

"There are a few frightening images of Joyce after she went to the other side," she reveals, "but it was much better than being in the morgue, let me tell you."
