"Calendar Boys" -
Last week, Kevin's buddy Tate was sent packing, and
Kevin vowed to make life miserable for everyone else. So
far, that hasn't happened, as Maurice and Hunter are
enjoying the trip to Puerto Rico. The guys enjoy getting
served drinks as they check in, and when they do, Kevin
serves them - hair spray as he tags each model with it.
After that, they go down for a nightcap, but Hunter,
though he can drink as he is at the age limit in Puerto
Rico, elects not to, as he is taking this seriously.
The guys take the morning message seriously, as they are
told that they have to sell the message. The carrier of
the message is Art Minds, who is the photographer of a
calendar shoot. He will be doing beach calendars - and
he tells them all to be creative in their shoot. He also
tells them all that the people who look in their mirrors
will have the advantage. Art is going to take pictures
of all 5 of them - and the public will decide who wins.
Hunter tries to be wild, Jon decides to be mellow (tough
Art liked his enthusiasm), Rob doesn't think that he is
a swimsuit model - and decides to do shots with his
shirt on - and Art agrees with that sentiment. Kevin
wants his boobs to look bigger. Wha? Art has the sense
that Kevin has done this before, while he thinks that
Maurice has a football player attitude.
While all of the guys play in the pool with the kayak
(instead of Hunter, who
does calisthenics in the sand), they are visited by
Carmen, who brings them
over to look at the calendars. Some people are happier
than others, as Maurice is thrilled and Rob...wants to
hide his head in the calendar. Bruce says that the
person who gets the most calendars selected gets the
choice in terms of the clothing for the fashion shoot
The first calendar to go is...Rob, who is stunned. Kevin
gets the next three
and Jon gets one. Maurice gets one to, which leaves
Hunter as the only one who doesn't get selected. Hunter
finally gets one - but not before Jon picks up 6 more.
Hunter gets his second one selected by...a guy. That
embarrasses both Hunter and Rob - though some guys do
wind up picking up Rob. Jon winds up getting all of his
calendars taken off the rack first, so he wins the
challenge. Kevin comes in second, Hunter comes in third,
and Maurice comes in fourth, which leaves Rob to grab
the leftovers for the Elimination challenge.
At the celebratory dinner, the guys want to serve Hunter
booze, but he wants none of it. It's a good thing to,
because he is bright and cheery as the guys get the next
message - that they are going to be doing a runway
shoot. Maurice does a runway pose, but he says that he
needs more in the personality than a fashion walk.
The guys go to the pool - and they see that the runway
is a glass catwalk over the pool. Bruce tells them to
own the runway and make it their own. He says to either
acknowledge the crowd -or be aloof and ignore everyone.
They will be judged on their presence, their mojo, and
to see who performs in front of a crowd.
The guys do a practice run for Bruce - and he tells them
all to be less stiff and to project more. The guys also
meet Doug Ordway, who is the photographer for the shoot.
He tells them all to wait for a second when they get to
the end of the catwalk - but don't let it look posed.
Jon gets to see all 5 shorts that are on display. He
selects baggy green flower shorts. Kevin takes the small
pink bikini briefs. Hunter gets short see-thru beige
shorts, Maurice grabs baggy orange jumper shorts, which
leaves Rob either blue Adidas-like bike shorts - or the
green leaves used to decorate the board that the shorts
are pinned on. He is thinking about using the leaves,
but despite that - and the other guys egging him on - he
takes the shorts.
The guys go inside to get their clothing that they will
be wearing over the
shorts. Maurice thinks that the clothes, with all of the
gold jewelry, make
them all look like Puerto Rican pimps. Heh.
After a trip to get made up, Jon is the first person to
pimp out. He almost
forgets to look at the photographer, but he gets some
good shots. Maurice is next, and he tips his glasses to
the cuties in the pool - and the cuties judging him.
They seem to be impressed. Kevin works the crowd a
little bit as he decides to play some macho
oneupsmanship. Hunter bites as he unbuttons his shirt -
which doesn't seem to make Bruce happy. Rob makes Bruce
happy in regular clothes catwalk session...
...but he comes off very stiff in the bathing suit run,
as he swivels his hips. Bruce loves what Jon does, as he
swings his arms. Maurice feels comfortable performing in
front of Carmen and Marissa - but Kevin, with the tight
pink shorts, wows the girls - and then does a flip into
the pool and shakes his buns. I don't think that's what
Bruce had in mind. He definitely didn't have what Hunter
did in mind, as he bobs his head in the water and lets
it splash all over his body - and then does sets of
pelvic thrusts. Even Doug thought he went too far, and
asked Bruce if it was for modeling or Chippendales.
Bruce says 'both', adds that it was some of the worst
runway stuff hat he has ever seen.
Who's going to be the objects of Bruce's ire? It won't
be Maurice, as he does sit-ups. It could be Rob, who
thinks he is at risk to go home. It could be Hunter, who
thinks Rob is going home. Jon has been praying a lot -
but I don't think it will be him.
As we see the pictures, we see that Rob is the only one
who's shot has him
clothed. Carmen tells the guys that she was wondering if
it got too Spring
Breakish, and she says that she wonders if Bruce,
Marissa and guest judge Doug Ordway thought the same.
With Maurice - Marissa sees a smile in the pic - but
Doug says that it was the only one and Bruce didn't
think he was having fun. Hunter - Marissa was glad that
he opened up - but he opened up too much, as he brought
in the cheese factor. Doug said that it was too
burlesque and Bruce says that it's a fine line between
sophisticated and Chippendales.
Jon - They noticed his nervousness - and he needs to be
more confident. Rob - Doug loves the look and wants to
progress with it, but Bruce says that it was the worst
runway work that he has ever seen, adding that it was
wretched. He tells Rob that he listened to the wrong
people - and he got caught by trying to compare himself
to Kevin. That spells disaster...
...but will Kevin stick up for his new boy? He does,
saying that this was an
off-period for him, but everything else has been good.
Kevin goes after Hunter and his Chippendales/Coyote Ugly
stunt. He see flaws in Jon but is photogenic in pictures
- but he doesn't know if Jon wants it. He perceives
Maurice as overconfident and Marissa admits that Maurice
needs to take criticism.
So who swims - and who
Good - Jon, Maurice
Trouble - Rob, Hunter
Mole - Kevin P.
Marissa comes up with the envelope, and the person who
has their last shot is....Hunter. Rob is breathing a
huge sigh of relief as Hunter leaves. He is crying as he
talks about his dream of a model. He says that this is
the beginning of his dream - but he says that he had fun
for the last 25 days here and he loved it. Well, now
Hunter has a real good reason to go to the bas and get
Rob thanks Bruce for a second chance, and as we get down
to three (four including the embedded model), we get
down to nature. Join us in seven days as we can see how
much of a beast the jungle can be.
