Windows of Opportunity - January 26
Needless to say, Chris and Tristins return in
not accepted pleasantly. In fact, pillows are chucked at their heads. Dont get
them wrong, they love Tristin, its just Chris they wanted gone. Time to get
back on task.
This week the beauties will have to learn about computers while the Geeks will
learn about interior decorating. Hopefully by the end of the week, both will
know a little bit more about Windows and Desktops. Studying begins quickly, and
so does the frustration. Tyson tries to tell Thais what a bit is and she decides
that it would be easier to study if she put on some make-up.
The studying, however, is cut short when the Geeks find out that they will be
going on an overnight field trip to Bed Bath & Beyond. The geeks will have
$1,500 to furnish a bedroom which will be judged tomorrow by the ladies. The
bedroom with the most votes will win the challenge. Of course the ladies will
not know who did which bedroom.
As the geeks leave the girls wonder if there will be beautiful men arriving to
join them. Josh looks as if his feelings were hurt.
The guys are confused as hell as they peruse the aisles. Chris makes love to
Claiborne and before you know it shopping is done. Well see shortly
whether or not they know their duvet covers from their pillow shams.
The girls have realized that the life has left the house now that the geeks are
gone and actually think that they may be undervaluing them. This may be our
first revelation of the season.
The guys ate a separate location are decorating bedrooms and shocking these
geeks are not very effective at using tools. Once they got past the staple guns
and hammers we get a look at their rooms. Josh stapled a teddy bear to the wall
and Wes wrote on the wall with red paint in a way that made you think of a
But the girls are far more critical. They additionally attacked color choices,
the tomato stand, the outdoor mat and more, but the real shrieking happened when
the ladies found out that their geek was responsible. Cher nearly shattered
glass with her bloody screams.
Now for the judging. We have a tie. The tie was between Joe and Karl and it will
be broken by first place votes. And
Joe wins with his soft pink and purple
palace. Its all about the flowers.
Now the girls will have to unpack a computer wire it, hook it up to the
internet, download a song, burn a CD and play it on a separate CD player. Anyone
who has watched this show before knows that this will be a monumental task.
Further the 2 yes or no questions that each girl is allotted will obviously not
help. This runs us into a 2 girl race between Tristin and Cher.
On the funny side, some girls are plugging both ends to the cable into the CPU
and Jennipher didnt realize the monitor needed a cable. In the end, Cher was
slightly faster than Tristin and as a result she got to celebrate by jumping on
the bed in the demonic kiddie room with Josh.
Who will be going to the elimination room? Initially it seems like it will be
Chris and Tristin vs. Thais and Tyson, but Josh is having second thoughts
thinking that maybe they should send the people who need this experience the
least. (meaning Wes or Karl).
Well, throw those thoughts out the window as both teams stick to their original
choices. Thais is genuinely sad. Tristin is pissed as she feels like she is
being picked on.
Can Chris and Tristin make it 2 for 2? Here we go.
Tristin is up first and knows the main circuit board is known as the
Thais is close when she says information is stored in memory. She wasnt
specific enough. They needed hard drive.
Tristin knows DVD is Digital versatile disc (or video disc). 2-0
Thais guesses CC stands for certified contact. Wrong (carbon copy)
Tristin goes 3-3 knowing the E in email is electronic.
Thais redeems herself knowing Bill gates co-founded Microsoft
So after 6 questions Chris and Tristin lead 3-1
Chris is up. From multiple choices, Chris is able to spot the fake interior
designer and goes up 4-1.
Tyson must get this right to stay in the game. He knows threads per square inch
is thread count and stays in the game 4-2.
Chris cant identify herringbone so Tyson has another chance Pressure still on.
One color = monochromatic and Tyson knows it. Tyson and Thais are down 1, 4-3.
Chris again, for the win. Its picture time. Name this host of Extreme Makeover
home edition. Ty Pennington. And to think Tristin elicited this answer from Josh
as a study check earlier in the show. Cher told him not to give the answer away,
but he did and now Chris and Tristin are victorious.
That means we will have to say a sad goodbye to the model and the Rubiks
genius. They may have been sentimental favorites but now they are gone. How long
will Chris reign of terror continue and will Tristin continue to be punished by
association? Keep clicking right here to find out.
What happens when you take eight
gorgeous but mentally inept women and pair them with eight
brilliant but socially awkward geeks? According to this show,
"the ultimate social experiment."
