"Drawing Dead" - July
*K-Ci and Jojo's "All My Life" playing in the
background* Preston and PJ... STILL together.
a date went too far, as Josh and Rachel's dream date
turned into a nightmare, as he! Goes! All! The! Way! ...
out the door, alongside Rudy and Alex. Here's who we
Caleb - $1,000,000
Mike and Chris - $250,000
Morgan and David
S. - $1
now knows that Mike is playing for $250,000. So what
does Jordan have up his sleeve today? A single date, of
course, the only one before the elimination. But what
will the guys have to do to get it? They'll have half
and hour to play Titanic with Rachel... That's right.
She's going to pose, and you're going to draw. And you
can't sub James Cameron's hand for your own. The drawing
she likes best will get the single date AND a chance to
swap his check for another from another player.
head to the studio, where Rachel is, true to form
sprawled out onto the couch wearing a robe. Because we'd
lose the TVPG rating if she was naked. Rachel sees this
as the ultimate equalizer, as she gets to find out where
motives lie. But how can she do that without knowing who
drew what? Osmosis?
feeling pressure to perform, as he has $1,000,000 and
ZERO artistic talent. While the others go for symbolism
(Mike has read Tupac's book of poetry one too many times
from his "rose growing out of concrete") or lack of it,
Rachel just lies there.
Caleb begin the double date action. She knows what Mike
has, but she thinks that Caleb may have a large checking
account. They head up to a ranch, where they compete in
archery for alone time. Mike just asks "Is this being
rigged for me?" Mike has a tough choice to make, does he
rely on his expanse knowledge of archery to shut Caleb
out of the running... or does he throw it?
throws it. Caleb wins the alone-time, while Mike sees
this as a gift for both Caleb and Rachel. So how do we
know that he was throwing it this whole time? (shoots
arrow at bullseye) That's how.
and Rachel paddle their way to the lunch area... or try
to, at least. Rachel can't stop laughing. Eventually,
they do make lunch. Caleb can't stop thinking about her
eyes. Rachel starts to develop some feelings for him,
while she starts to think about Mike and his check. Mike
reassures her, and we have to wonder if she notices the
target. All in all, two great guys, one great date...
Until we head into the limo, where the following
discourse takes place. We want to warn you that the
following is pretty graphic.
"When you held my arm like that, Jordan... I mean,
Definitely a no-no. If you remember, Rachel supposedly
never met Jordan and is not playing the game. However,
Mike and Caleb start to think otherwise. But what would
the others think? "I get called different stuff all the
time." Morgan wants to figure out her secret, as he,
Chris, and David go on their date with Rachel.
nothing says love like... Automatic rifles! Whoever gets
a shot off at a clay duck gets alone time today. Who's
the best crackshot? It's Chris, who gets to kill Rachel
with kindness now. Chris goes a hunting for a
connection... and maybe a secret or two. Rachel says
she's excited to be here, and she sees Chris as not a
that day, it's time to reveal who's the best artist
among the final five. That person will get a single date
AND the chance to swap out his check with someone
else's. It's Jor... Morgan. She's got me doing it. And
Mike hits it on the head, coming from an artist
("Apparently symbolism doesn't win any favors in this
world"). Morgan was surprised that she came onto him.
arrive at Shambala wildlife reserve. Morgan reserves his
right to manipulate until after dinner. "It's like
having the angel and the devil" on your shoulder, he
says, while Rachel fears the things she loves the most
about him, that he's older, more experienced. Morgan
felt like he was playing her. Rachel felt like she was
playing him. Guys, "The Player" is next week.
Morgan's chance to brag, schmooze, and switch out
checks. But first, he lies about kissing her. "Guys,
it's over." The next day, he swaps checks with Caleb.
Good move, if only because he got $1,000,000. Everyone
finds out about this, and Caleb is kicking himself,
because now he's playing for $1. Morgan's thoughts: "I
brought out my B-game, I'm bringing out my A-game."
Everyone thinks he's been playing everyone else.
Morgan... doesn't think so.
thinks that someone told Morgan what his check was.
Elimination time. Mike is down first... and chemistry
works. He's in. Morgan's next... same thing. Only less
open. Caleb also gets the spiel about chemistry, and
he's more open than he was last week, so he's in,
leaving David S. and Chris. Chris is down... and out. No
romantic chemistry. One burned check for him. David is
spared the speech, and we're spared five minutes,
because this edition ends right on the dot at
week, the men strike back.
