Next Kiss - July 21
If you missed the last episode, you missed NOTHING, as
no one got eliminated. Then again, most of the audience
has felt all along that they missed nothing, as they
have tuned out in droves and ratings are under a 3.0.
Yeccch. Well, since I am still here, let's get the ball
rolling, shall we?
Jared is hoping that his girlfriend isn't watching (and
he should be relieved, since no one is watching this).
But we are not concerned about that - we are concerned
about the next screen - 'Next Kiss' - as both actors are
hanging on a dangling car. One of them must fall off to
save the other one's life - and that is the scariest
scene that they have done yet. Even scarier for two
people is that the worst ones in the group will be
We recap the fact that no one got eliminated in the
morning as everyone takes martial arts classes. Mae and
Melisande realize their vulnerability, while Jared
thinks that him, Mark, Mae or Melisande will be leaving
- and the competition will be between them.
Kurt Bryant, the stunt coordinator, is meeting for all
of them after class as they convene at the Rose Bowl.
Kurt explains that in their scene, they will be attached
to a cable as one of them will fall from the car
dangling off of the bridge. Kurt wants all of them to
try out the cable, while Mark thinks that it's a great
way to not have kids. John, who we already know has a
fear of heights, is starting to hyper ventilate and
Jeanne tries to help him out. Jared, who realizes Jeanne
as the enemy, starts to talk trash and Jeanne, in
return, tells him to shut up. John eventually gets
through the stunt, but not before staring daggers at
Jared and you can sense that the lines are drawn.
The Hi-Speed Challenge for this week is to see who can
hang on to a bar the longest. The winner of the
Challenge gets a night out on the town - and they can
bring anyone who they want with them. Sean, who claims
that he can hang on for the longest, manages 59 seconds
- but Melisande beats that immediately with 1:02. I
remember in Fear Factor that the women usually do better
at this sort of stunt, and Corinne doesn't disappoint,
as she holds on for 2:18.6. Jeanne, who pledged to take
Corinne with her if she wins, does her one better -
3:10.02. She can smell the dinner...but Jared takes it
away from her with a 3:13 mark and that's another notch
added to that rivalry.
But we have a second surprise. Kurt gives out the Retake
card for the person who did the cable stunt the best.
That person is... Melisande, and she is grateful for it.
She can also be grateful for a nice dinner, as Jared
selects her to go with. This is all nice and well -
except we are all reminded that Jared has a girlfriend -
which right now is not looking very promising.
Back at dinner, Melisande plants the seed of comedy by
talking about her nose. Jared plants the seeds of
disunity by talking to John about what Jeanne and Jared
got into. Surprisingly, John agrees with Jared and you
wonder if this sudden rift will get into anyone's
Back in Howard Fine's studio, the group has to do a
scene about loss. Each of them talked about a parent or
an aunt passing - but Melisande goes further and talks
about her own attempt at suicide, and how her aunt saved
her. That gets her a Casting card - and John, for his
description of the passing of his mother, gets the other
card. Howard thought that this could be the scene that
could turn everything around for Melisande. Now can she
carry this win streak through the scene?
Tina reminds the bottom four that this casting card is
vital. John picks Corinne, Melisande picks Jared, Mae
works with Mark and Jeanne works with Sean. This is good
for Jeanne, who doesn't have to worry about John and her
going nuts over the challenge incident. They are not the
only people talking; Corinne and Mark get to know each
other, as they haven't had a chance to chat. So you're
waiting until NOW to talk? Mark explains that he has to
talk to people because, 'there's nothing to do in this
damn house.' Poor baby.
Jared is waiting forever for Melisande, as everyone is
dubbing this Jared's first date. Jared is saying that
it's good and exciting to find someone new, but he still
says that he has a girlfriend (Christina) that he still
loves. He has been playing with the thought of going
with someone new, but Melisande puts her foot down and
tells Jared that if he isn't serious with her, then it
needs to stop. He says that he doesn't know, and that
should be the message to Christina that spells curtains
on the relationship. If she didn't get the point then,
the groping and mouth-to-mouth kissing right afterwards
should have driven it home and I suggest that she gets
her bags packed up.
Mark and Mae take all of the hours in the house to make
sure they know their parts. Jeanne decides for whatever
bizarre reason to not take that time to study, and that
pisses Sean off to the point where the tension is
rising. Sean wants to rehearse, but Jeanne doesn't want
to rehearse in front of the camera. WHA? Sean warns
Jeanne that if she screws up her lines, he's going to
give her the business. Giving up working with Jeanne, a
frustrated Sean asks John to go over the lines instead
and he obliges.
Jeanne decides to rehearse with Sean, and he agrees.
Jeanne asks Sean if he is mad, and he denies that he is
- but she says that she heard him and John bitching her
out and Sean looks like the cat that got caught eating
the canary with the feathers sticking out of his mouth.
Despite the error, Sean asks Jeanne for forgiveness.
They make up, and...
...in the Screen Test, Sean admits that Jeanne did a
great job. There is a woman, though, that does screw up
her line - and it's Mae. Mark says that it's natural
that she gets caught in the moment, but that could spell
disaster. Melisande thinks that she did a great job -
but they screwed up the kiss and she was thinking about
redoing the scene. She didn't use it, because she
thought that she would be giving the wrong message...but
should she have if the penalty is elimination?
They all talk about this during dinner, and they talk
about how the Call back is going to suck. The producers
don't think that John and Corinne sucked, and Marki is
impressed that she is the only woman that would take the
fall from the car. They liked Sean - but they didn't
think that Jeanne improved. They thought that both
Melisande and Jared have vastly improved - but is Jared
the person who they want to cast? Mae screwed up his
line - but there was a split between if they thought
that it was because she was weak of if Mark was weak. It
definitely looks like Mark and Mae are going, but did
Jeanne do enough damage to herself to replace Mae on the
Tina comes back to tell them that the next script is
called 'Road Kill', which stars 3 people in a dangerous
high speed chase. Two of the eight people are going to
be road kill right about now, but it won't be Sean or
Corinne, who got called up first. Joining them are John
and Jeanne, so the bottom four on the couch last time
will be the same 4 people on the couch this time. The
final two people to advance will be... Jared and
Melisande. Marki says that neither of them seemed
vulnerable, and the weak scene did them in. Mark now
admits that he needed to take it more seriously. How
could you not take this seriously? 3 other guys took it
seriously, and that's why he's out.
Next week - it's the finale! We move from 3 pairs to 1
as we figure out who will be starring in their own movie
- or who will be steering the Titanic into the iceberg.
