"The Private Eye
Becomes Very Public" - November 9
We start out this episode
off with Tate, who asks all of the models if someone
moved his clothes. The models all respond that it wasn't
the clothes that moved, it was Tate's brain, as it is
finally coming back to Earth after a 48 hour drinking
binge. That binge started on the last episode, where he
almost lost it against Hunter, and Tate is now coming
back to reality - although I am not sure how often he
has been there during the show's run.
We get a montage of Tate's happenings during that binge,
and we wonder if Tate if sober enough to read the new
card that came in. Apparently not, as Rob gets to read
it this time -
For the Manhunt 6, It's your red carpet rights
From fast cars to beaches to Hollywood nights
Get ready for ACCESS and close-ups to you
and be a good host, you'll have company too
The guys think that both women and Access Hollywood will
be a part of this. They are correct, as Kevin P. tells
us that the other 5 models will have a taste of the good
life. They get to the Access Hollywood studios and are
met by Shauna Robinson, who calls them the 6 hottest
guys on the planet. After they are taken on a tour of
the set, Shauna tells them that the key to being a
personality and a star is to have a personality - and
she tells them that they will all be having interviews.
Maurice starts this off - and he interviews Shauna with
scientific questions to show off his knowledge. Wha?
Tate decides to do one-armed push-ups, adding that only
2 weeks ago, he was watching her and now he's actually
being interviews by her. Rob just spins around, while
Hunter tells Shauna that he has to take his shirt off
while doing a hand stand - and does so. Jon says that he
makes Orlando Bloom look like the Wicked Witch of the
West, and Kevin also takes off his shirt and bounces his
pecs, a la the Gong Show.
We finish the segment by having all of the guys take off
their shirts and flexing. The guys seem to be impressed
with Shauna, but was she impressed with them? According
to this quote....no. 'The guys have to learn very
quickly is that beauty in Hollywood and a dime will get
you a bagel. Everyone is gorgeous in Hollywood. There is
something else that has to pop in order to be a star.'
Speaking of popping, the guys, crammed in their limo,
decide to pop out of their limo and go to the beach to
play some volleyball. Little do they know that they are
not alone - Jeff Raymer, an international photographer,
has been brought on board to play the role of the
stalking paparazzi. He will take pictures of them when
they are not realizing it, hoping to catch them in
compromising positions. Well being that Tate and Kevin,
the guys who were behind the first episode women fiasco,
are still there, he may have some very good
possibilities for some revealing photos.
Right on cue, Carmen drives up in a yellow Lamborghini
and divides the group of men into two teams. The teams
will be playing 6 on 6, and the winning team gets to
drive around in the same yellow Lamborghini that Carmen
came in on. The teams other 3 players? Some lovely women
who Carmen brings along. Rob really wants to win this
one, but he is not volleyball-inclined and his team goes
down to Hunter, Maurice and Jon. Rob is still brooding
about the loss as he makes fun of them for not knowing
anything about the car.
After everyone on the winning team gets to drive, Carmen
invites them all to the White Lotus, where she and her
girls will be partying. The guys continue to hang out at
the beach - and the photographer continues to shoot
pictures - including one of Maurice's butt as he
After the day on the beach, the guys look forward to the
night on the town. Hunter finds that his first time in a
limo is 'kooky', as the rest of the models are stunned
that there would be so many people - and flash
photographers - as there are. At dinner, the men find
themselves eating with some guests. Rob notes that some
of the 6 women who are interspersed between the guys
were playing volleyball with them earlier on in the day.
He also notes that Hunter has made a connection with one
of them. As you remember form the last episode, though,
Rob is gay, so he seems completely non-plussed about the
Bruce, the judge of the show, talks about one of the
keys in the business is how to handle yourself in social
situations. Seeing the past experiences, this could
spell trouble for Tate, but it's Hunter who makes
himself look silly by going after sushi with his fork -
and then trying to force the women to eat it as well.
Jon wants to slap the women and Rob says that the women
were probably some of the most annoying ever, but they
don't do anything obnoxious as they are just there to
take in the moment.
The guys go to White Lotus with the women - and they
continued to get photographed by Raymer. Hunter does
some heavy grinding as he takes off his shirt and grinds
away. Jon was wondering if sweat could cause pregnancy,
because if it could, then Hunter impregnated at least
three women during the night. Heh.
Other people seem to take it better. There was a guy
that came over to Rob, but Rob blew him off, saying that
he wasn't going to be distracted by that stuff until the
competition was over. Jon acts the exact same way when
some women try to get to him, saying that there will be
time for that later. They both stay the course even as
the drinks start piling up. Hunter continues to take off
his clothes and even Jeff Raymer thinks that he should
in the future have more clothes and less dry-humping.
The next morning, all of the men are up and awake as
they get some new visitors. No, the women don't come
back with them this time, but they do get racks of
clothing from H. Lorenza as it's time to get to a
dress-up photo shoot. Kevin talks to Hunter about how he
may be too short, but Tate will fit in well with the
clothes. Nothing like campaigning early for your boy,
eh, Kevin? He does add that it's important that they fit
in the samples, because that's probably what they will
be wearing for the shoot.
Rob is thrilled that he finally gets to do something
with his clothes on, as he thinks that he isn't a
swimsuit model. Maurice, remembering that Bruce wanted
to see him in a different type of look, wants to do a
moody shot. Kevin says that he always does a moody shot
and he wants to see Maurice smile - and the photographer
wants to see that as well. Tate gets a new slick-back
look, and he is told to not let his prop umbrella take
over the shot. Kevin is still extolling his praises, and
he says that Tate's versatility gives him the best
potential. Kevin also likes Rob, who has a nice shot,
and Jon (who he also think is photogenic), who wants to
have a bad-ass image for this photo shoot.
Hunter is next, and he is excited to finally have a
clothes-on pic. He remembers that he is supposed to be
more masculine, but Kevin remembers that he was wearing
a pink shirt at the club and he was the passive dancer
to the women's aggressiveness. Hunter is having problems
in the shoot. Conversely, Kevin only needs one shot to
get the pic and Brian the photographer thanks Kevin for
being easy - but only in the photo shoot sense. Uhhhhhh,
It's time for mail - and this one rhymes...
It's been a long journey through the fashion and woes
Now it's time to decide who stays and who goes
No matter what happens, you're leaving this space
So pack up your gear and pick up your pace
All of the guys get a travel case and are told to stuff
their belongings in it. Tate says that it's time for
friendships to be broken. Jon says that he may have a
disadvantage this week. Rob says that there will be no
complaining on objects, so this shoot will be about the
man. All of them are praising Brian the photographer and
complimenting their shots - but there are also 6
photographs that are covered in a black curtain, and
they are wondering what could be under there. Well, we
haven't seen our friend Jeff Raymer in a while, so I
think I can take an educated guess here.
Carmen comes in and lets the men know what happened, as
she introduces them all to Raymer. She adds that you
have to look good wherever you go, as the last thing
that you want to see is your a$$ hanging out in Star
Magazine. Heh. Carmen says that they will be judges on
their work with Brian, but also....on a collage of
photos created by Jeff - and that's what is hiding
behind the black curtained easels. The men give a
collective 'Oh-no' groan and it looks like some of them
could be in trouble.
Jeff said that Rob was the best, as he couldn't get any
incriminating pictures of him. Hunter seemed almost
thrilled with his shots, as he escapes serious damage
with his pics (with the most damaging one being of his
butt hanging out), but both Tate and Jon are caught with
pictures of them dry-humping the women. We've now seen
the butts of Tate, Maurice and Hunter - so Rob should be
having a field day watching this at home.
After a walk -through of the shots, the judging trio of
Bruce, Marissa and model manager Omar get to do what
they do best - critique. Hunter - Bruce says he looks
good in his pic and he's happy that Hunter is more
masculine. He also likes that he is getting out of his
shell, but Omar wants to see a signature look and
Marissa wants more attitude. Jon - Marissa still doesn't
see much change from his other pics and Omar is
concerned about his pic. Bruce is getting bored with
him. Afterwards, Jon curses out Bruce, but you can tell
he is concerned. Rob - Omar doesn't know if Rob knows
what he's doing, but he is doing the right thing and he
can't say anything negative about him. Bruce can't find
one either except maybe that he has small ears. Heh.
Maurice - Omar sees confidence - but also cockiness.
Marissa did see a new look, but she sees nothing in his
face and looks emotionless. Bruce wants more emotion as
well. Tate - Bruce likes the picture, but Omar says that
his look is too old and his fun takes over the work.
Marissa adds that he has behavior issues and he was
probably the worst in the shoot, with Bruce adding that
Bad Boy models don't last long. Tate says that he has
learned his lesson about what to do in public - but has
he learned it too late?
Finally, we get Kevin P's report, which I'm sure will be
chock full of praise for Tate. He likes everyone's pic,
but he wants a new look from Maurice. and though it's
not Tate's best pic, he pulls it off well. He also
thinks that Rob has a very strong repertoire and can be
a professional even if he doesn't win this competition.
He doesn't like Jon's one dimensionality. He likes
Hunter, but not a Supermodel (but keep in mind that
Hunter had a fight with his boy Tate on the last
episode, so that may have come into play with his
Now for the dirt - Kevin admits that Tate still needs to
improve his mental game (well that's a nice way of
saying that he is dumb as a box of rocks), and says that
he may need an assistant, while Rob has lived in L.A.
and could handle the environment. He doesn't know if Jon
or Maurice have the fire in their eyes and want it,
while he knows that Hunter wants it, but doesn't know if
he can handle it.
As we get down to the wire, we cut down a category but
this still seems to be an accurate chart...
Good - Hunter, Rob
Trouble - Jon, Maurice, Tate
Mole - Kevin P.
We have the men reconvene, and Carmen gets the letter of
eviction. She says that the person evicted will be
staying here, while the rest will be going to Puerto
Rico for their next shoot. Bruce congratulates everyone
for getting this far, but unfortunately for Tate, he
won't be going there. Tate nods, and even he sensed that
he is gone. He didn't expect to get this far (and he
wouldn't have, without a push from Kevin). Bruce says
that Bad Boy Models don't last - and he wouldn't last
for 25 years, while Marissa boots him for his
immaturity. Kevin P., who was trying to get rid of Jon,
says 'My homey's out. It sucks, but that's competition.'
Well, I no longer get to rant about Kevin keeping Tate
in, but the damage has been more than done and Kevin has
caused enough chaos to the show's credibility. Next
week, he vows to do more, as he says he will step up his
game to see which models step up the game with him and
which ones crumble. Join us in 7 days to see as things
get heated up - in more ways than one.
