The Blind Date, the Cheapskate and the Primate is the fourth episode in Season 3 of JESSIE. It first aired on November 1, 2013 to 3.16 million viewers.


Jessie and Tony set up dates for each other to prove they are moving on. Tony believes Jessie is actually planning to set him up with herself, but when he learns she set him up with her friend, he asks the janitor Earl to take Jessie out on a date, unaware that Earl likes to eat food people throw out. Tony called him Eddie so Jessie believes his name is Eddie-Earl.

Meanwhile Ravi gets an internship at the Central Park Zoo, but Luke messes around with the animals when Ravi is put in charge so Emma can take his mentor for a makeover.
