"Dog Show" - September 29
We have eliminated 15 women
- and one guy - in the first show. We start the episode
by the ladies learning that two people will be moving
in, which doesn't please the ladies at all. There is a
lady that moves in - Sabrina, who happens to be the dog
of.... Byron! Byron and his dog are both moving in, and
the ladies are enjoying it. Even more importantly, there
are no rules in terms of hanging out with him, so the
women are very happy - especially Kelly, who already has
her dog on the premises.
There is a catch, however - since Byron is living at the
house, there is no real reason for group dates anymore.
Therefore, the only dates will be individual ones, and
there are only two of them to be had. To add to the
pressure, the first one will be...TONIGHT!!! AHH!!!
Andrea, Kelly and Kristie will be the first people to be
with Byron. as they will help him move in. Meanwhile,
some of the more reserved women are having... uh...
reservations because they realize they need to be more
outgoing. Byron toasts to the roommates next door, and
they all seemed to make a good impression.
Then there's Jayne, who is really happy that Byron has
moved in, since she is terrible at dates, Tanya shares
that assessment, while Kelly is getting one on one time
with Byron. That upsets the women, because she, liked
Krysta, voted for Jay. Here come the claws... which are
protracted when Kelly talks about the 2 1/2 year itch.
Is that really something that you want to say to a
Andrea makes Byron a sandwich, and Krysta is already
noting that Andrea has fallen for him and is taking
notes. The other women are wondering who Byron will pick
for the first date. Byron makes up his mind, puts his
choice in an envelope and leaves it on a podium by the
pool. Krysta runs over there first, as she hopes that
its for her - but of course it isn't. It's for....
Cheresse. She is happy that she got it - but now she is
wondering if she got it because he's interested - or if
she got it because she's on the fence and this is his
way of finding out. We're not overthinking too much, are
Cheresse is looking for commitment, so she's hoping that
Byron is the one. He takes her out to Okes, which looks
like a cowboy bar. They are surprised by.... Brandi???
Well, that's not really cowboyish. Well, Brandi first
rehearses, then gives Cheresse a private performance
(not THAT sort of performance, pervs!), She doesn't lip
sync very well, and it really looks like this is more of
a rehearsal for a new song than performing. She says
that it was the most unbelievable evening in her life.
The women, meanwhile, are making fun of the date, with
Krysta wearing nothing but an apron. Now THAT would get
more of my attention than Brandi.
They do get to talking besides Brandi, and Cheresse
seems to be very happy with the date. Kristie,
meanwhile, is not happy being alone, so she writes a
little letter to Byron and leaves it and three roses
outside his door. Meanwhile, Krysta has the same idea,
and she also writes a letter - but she notices the
letter with three roses. She adds more roses to that and
leaves her letter there, while a jealous Kristie looks
on. Byron comes back and sees both letters - and then
realizes that this may only be the beginning of a heated
rivalry. You think?
The next morning, that rivalry gets nastier as Kristie
confronts Krysta about it. Krysta tells Kristie that she
didn't know that anyone left a note before she saw it,
and she tells her to grow up or get out. They hug and
make up - but Krysta says to the camera that Kristie is
full of crap and we have drama.
We get more of it as we have one less person to worry
about. Leina decides that she is in love with her best
friend and bows out gracefully from the competition.
That was graceful - Cynthia's reaction to who gets the
second date isn't as we find out that it is...Jayne who
gets it. She is shocked and Cynthia bleeps out a
response. She says that she is getting annoyed that
Byron hasn't noticed her. Hello - it's a competition -
it's your job to make sure that he recognizes YOU - not
the other way around.
Jayne, who is terminally shy, is very concerned that if
she doesn't open up, she's not getting a rose. They
decide to go fishing, as Byron wants to know how she
does in his world, as they toast on the pier right next
to the boat, Jayne notices how he lit up when they were
fishing and how he was teaching her. She forgot to be
nervous around Byron, and she was actually getting into
it and kissing the fish - which turned him on. Well,
whatever floats your boat, so to speak.
After the fishing, Byron comes back to cook the meal
that they had caught. They toast to catching and eating
their very first fish, and Jayne says she's having a
great time. She says that she was concerned about coming
out of her shell - and Byron says that she is a sweet
While that is going on, Amanda and Leina come out to
where the girls are hanging out in the living room and
announces that her heart is somewhere else - and
therefore, she's leaving. The girls are hugging her, but
Wende, probably echoing the girls sentiments, is glad
that she's gone, because it's one less person to
eliminate. Heh. Now Leina can really get Leied back
home. Heh, heh, heh...
After Byron and Jayne talk about each of them having to
make it happen, they head on back to the house. He says
that he can see a relationship there - but Jayne is
worried about the 14 girls waiting back home. Well, make
it 13. When Byron gets back, he gets the note from Leina,
and he just says that it's cool that Leina is honest
enough that she can go after who she wants. It didn't
really seem like he was that into her, based on that
reaction - so it wouldn't surprise me if that was part
of her rationale.
One less woman is very good news for the women who are
still there - but the bad news is that there is no more
hanging out party - which means that certain women have
said their last words to him. He is allowed to select
three women for a last chance talk. He selects Natalie,
Jayne and Kristie to have those talks with. Chris goes
downstairs and relays those same thoughts to the women -
and Natalie is up first. Natalie doesn't like the news,
because she feels that he thinks that she is on the
fence. She then says that she is concerned that Byron
has been married before. Byron says that he should be
concerned if he wasn't married and Natalie says that she
wants to be serious. Byron isn't liking this vibe and
this spells trouble for Natalie.
Byron calls in Jayne next, because he wants to make sure
that she is interested. She is, but she is shy and she
needs to work on it. They snuggle a little and I am
convinced that Jayne is staying.
Kristie is the last person called - and that upsets
Krysta, because she is concerned that Kristie, who
doesn't get along with Krysta, is going to trash her
behind her back. Kristie is more concerned about her own
role in the game, and she says that she is trying to
sell herself to Byron - something that Byron notices,
wondering if she is in it to play a game. That doesn't
sound too good for Kristie.
We'll see as Byron approaches the women and invites the
following women to stay with him and Sabrina the dog -
Tanya, Amanda, Elizabeth, Cherisse, Andrea, Suzie,
Jayne, Kristie, Krysta and.... Cynthia. OUT: Natalie,
Kelly, Wende and Ashley. Ashley is disappointed, but she
saw that there wasn't a major connection. Wende saw one
- but not a reconnection after he moved into the house
while Kelly thought that they weren't each other's type.
Only Natalie thought there was more of a connection than
Byron thought and she immediately leaves to cry away her
Next week, 4 more women will be upset - but all of the
women will not be happy as two women from the
television's show past will have a second chance to woo
The Bachelor. Tune in next week to see who they are -
and if that's enough to get Krysta away from attacking
