The men on the latest Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, “Timing is Everything” ran the gamut from dream date to total nightmare. Who made the grade and who needs to get left behind. Here’s our rating.

Adam:  Jo’s Tinder date hoarded shrimp at the raw bar, left Jo’s side to lurk at the open bar and made a spectacle of himself by dropping trou at the engagement party. Mooching for cable, really? What’s next, access to Jo’s Netflix password? — F.

Jake: Sorry, but Jake is losing points. It’s not just that he got Becca pregnant, it’s that he dated her in the first place. You don’t switch from Veuve Clicquot’s to Kool-Aid. Going from sophisticated Abby to the vapid starlet was a major downgrade. After he dragged his feet on telling Abby about the baby news, he claimed the moral high ground when she ‘fessed up about her tryst with Will. Rise up, #Wabby shippers. — D.

Gordon: Willingness to commit is good, but he’s really pushy about the scale of the impending wedding. Delia is obviously wary of the situation. Nobody likes a Bridezilla. Plus, he seems sketchy. — C-

Dr. Harris: Being chivalrous and comforting during Abby’s crying jag was sweet. Offering to keep the date going with chocolate souflée was even sweeter. Sending that pricey bouquet in the wake of that debacle was the sweetest. After her row with Jake, Abby needed that pick-me-up. The only reason he’s not getting an “A” is because flirting with a stranger on Twitter is weird. — B

Scott: Hmm, a burgeoning celebrity chef who looks like a model, takes care of Jo, behaves like her date when her actual date is a disaster and even hauls the jerk out of the shindig to spare Jo from further humiliation? The accent alone makes the grade.— A+

Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce airs Tuesdays at 10/9c on Bravo.
