A Change Is Gonna Come - January 19
Amanda and Chris have chosen to switch with
Brandon and Tristin!
and boy is Tristin pissed. She chose Brandon for a reason and felt that they
were meant to be together and now that they have been separated she doesnt know
what to do.
Nonetheless the switch progresses, but Tristin wants answers. Chris tries to
explain that he is uber-competitive and chose her because she has the best
educational background of any of the beauties. Tristin isnt buying it, but she
does want to stay in the house so she is willing to ride out hurricane Chris.
Amanda and Brandon seem to be okay with this change and thus we dont hear much
about it. Predictably we head back to the Chris quandary.
Chris heads out to the hot tub with the intentions of apologizing to the rest of
his housemates but they want none of it and threaten to interrogate him for
revenge. Stalemate. Its time for this weeks challenge.
All the worlds a stage on Beauty and the Geek and the Geeks will learn that the
hard way as they will be performing karaoke on stage in front of a crowd. The
Beauties however will be engaging in political speech making. Thus as expected,
everyone will have to step out of their comfort zone. Danielle personally
doesnt care about learning the finer points of politics as she believes
whatever works for her is all she needs to know. Go figure.
Ankur is training Jennipher and the last time Jennipher gave a speech she was in
a class and she was talking about putting on a babys diaper. Trouble.
Chris is worried that when Tristin thinks she remembers what Social Security is
that rather than an actual recollection she is experiencing a blonde moment.
Then he realizes the truth that Tristins life is one extended Blonde moment.
Season tow has turned harsh
But not as harsh as Josh who is practicing singing "Hot Blooded" in front of the
mirror. Wait, when did I start watching American Idol?
At least Tyson has perfect pitch. That is in his ears, something that only 1 in
2,000 people have. His vocals on the others hand are possessed by almost
everyone who has the ability to skin a cat.
Practicing is over. Bright lights are up. Welcome to the Beauty and the Geek
Cher and Josh are both nervous as Josh begins to sing, and rightfully so. Josh
comes in 4 measures early and almost loses all of his nerve. Then he realizes
things couldnt get any worse and goes for it. Yup, it doesnt get much worse
than making a fool of yourself on national TV.
Chris completely dorks out, but isnt that entertaining. Im sure hell stick to
his pop culture expertise, especially after his shameful booty shake.
Sex has become a theme as Wes and Sarah perform a mild striptease. Well, Sarah
strips and Wes ogles.
But can stripping beat Tyson completing his Rubiks cube act on stage?
Behold the power of the Cube! Tyson wins with 73% of the vote. I hope the geeks
have learned that cheap tricks win every time. Rubiks cube can be found at your
neighborhood geek stores.
I would spend extensive time recapping their platforms and points of view, but
unfortunately they didnt have many. There was plenty of stumbling and squirming
Danielle is trying to look smart in her suit but she really has nothing to say.
As Karl relates Danielle only talked about taxes for about 40 seconds. The rest
was Danielle trying to be cute.
Jennipher is asked to speak about pollution and she cant muster much more than
a reuse, reduce and recycle.
Brittany comes across as a cupie doll when she discusses social security, but if
you can get past the voice she actually provided some content
This is different from Tristin who is raving like a lunatic about global
warming. No substance, just yuks.
Cheryl silences the crowd by relating Medicare and social security to her
grandmother and while many may seem bored she gives by for the most solid speech
Thais tries to top that by discussing
well, very little. At least she was cute
in her business suit.
Amanda also knows nothing about global warming and decides to perform a bit of a
jig. Unfortunately these are not the auditions for Lord of the Dance
Sarah, lets us no never to throw your dirty diapers in the backyard, and now we
know why we dont take attractive people seriously. This behavior should not be
condoned, but Sarah isnt helping the situation.
With fears that the audience may vote based on popularity, 77% of the vote goes
to Cheryl who absolutely rocked! Hah, brains can actually win over beauty on
television. Now that is a rarity.
With that everyone runs to study while Tyson, Thais, Cheryl (Cher), and Josh
lounge it up. Yet they have the tough decision of deciding who will go to the
The night before elimination, everyone gets champagne and a toga party is
thrown. Scarier yet, the Beauties want to play a game of Truth or Dare. In the
exact opposite direction of good television, the geeks say that they would
rather have a fashion runway walk off. This is a sad, sad day for geeks
everywhere as these men just turned downs an opportunity that most geeks will
never have. Shame.
Lets move on to the elimination room selections.
Heres the verdict:
Ty and Thai send Chris and Tristin
Cher and Josh send Amanda and Brandon
Seems fitting that at least one of the people responsible for the switch will be
going home, now lets see if it is Chris like everyone seems to be hoping.
Tristin is up first and the address of the White House guessing 1 White House
Rd. (Correct: 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.)
Amanda knows the upper atmosphere layer most associated with pollution etc. is
the ozone layer and takes the lead
Tristin think Jefferson is on the $10 bill, but is wrong, its Hamilton.
Amanda is shown a picture of the Pentagon and calls it the Pentagon. Point! 2-0.
Tristin can name the last democratic president, Clinton, and moves the score to
Amanda needs to name the capital of Iraq and guesses Afghanistan. Ouch.
After the Ladies, the score is 2-1 Brandon and Amanda ahead of Tristin and Chris
Chris knows Jamie Foxx sings on Kanye Wests single "Golddigger" and ties the
Brandon knows Ashlee Simpsons lip syncing woes and goes up 3-2
Chris reaches deep into his sphincter to name Gwen Stefanis clothing line as
Brandon is given a picture of destinys Child and knows Beyonce, but Tyra Banks
is not a member. We remember what happened to her singing career (or maybe we
dont). The other members are Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams
Chris goes 3 for 3 in naming Nick Lachey as a Member of 98 Degrees
Brandon needs this for the tie. Does he know what R&B artist won Grammys for his
album Confessions? Alicia Keys wont cut it. Usher would have kept him in the
game, but nonetheless, Amanda and Brandon have had a nice ride.
Tune in next week to see how everyone responds to Chris return. Or better yet,
check out this recap to get all the juice in much less than an hours time.
Until we geek again, Nanu, Nanu.
