"Cowboy Ride, Part 2"
- December 3
It's 4am, and Rocco wakes everyone to let them know
that they head out in a couple of hours. Because of
penalty, Eric R. & Yancy have to saddle all of the
couples' horses. And instead of the usual country music
in the background we have... Norah Jones? That's
it's the big round up, and no one has seen a cow yet...
until mid-morning. Trouble is that they have to ride off
of a cliff to do the job. The key to survival is
following Rocco's trail and to lean back. And, according
to Rocco, "Pause and you'll die." Lance has no problem.
Eric D. needs to nudge his horse in the right direction.
Yancy, suffering from a fear of heights, fights it. In
fact, the only real victim is Tiffany, who just "can't
breathe". See, she's only a victim of editing.
Now comes the fun part,
wrangling up cows. The doesn't even try to communicate,
as everyone is doing their own little thing in their own
little world. "Too many captains trying to run the
ship," Lance says. Bill leads the pack as everyone
started to come together. End result, the cows are
The next day, we have to
get a few stray cows without the help of Rocco & Judd.
They manage to pen all ... but one. "Getting the one cow
is more difficult than getting the whole herd," Yancy
says. Lance decided to take matters into his own hands,
leaving the one cow to the others. "I'm going to put a
sign on Lance saying 'Does not play well with others'."
Cue the Eric R.-Lance fight and Lance successfully
pushed another guy's buttons.
So the team finally gets
all of the cows up and out onto the range in the rain.
They seem not to have a problem with it. In fact, it
made the round up that much more exhilarating.
But all good things have
to come to an end, as the cowboys head back to the
ranch. But one couple will head out again, this time,
for good. Eric R. and Yancy seem to think that they are
going to get the cut. Eric D. thinks that Bill & Annette
are going home, while Bill thinks that Lance & Vicky
will get the shaft.
One way to find out.
It's time for the final campfire. First, the reward: a
private bubble bath for two... goes to Eric R. & Yancy.
They stepped it up. Gotta give'em props for that. Yancy
put it all together. Eric R. has a passion. But now, the
Eric D. & Tiffany... are
Eric R. & Yancy... are
Bill & Annette... are
out. "I think the pressure got the best of both of you."
So there they go. Two of the nicest guys on the show are
gone. Eric R. & Yancy fear alongside Eric D. & Tiffany
that Lance will turn up the obnoxious factor next time.
In the meantime, it's a sweet bubble bath for the Latin
Heat, because in 10 hours, it's my big fat obnoxious
