Episode 7 - August 3
So I'm watching the WWE's Monday Night Raw... Yeah,
that's right, I watch wrestling! Anyways, they are
having their Diva Search, where women are competing for
$250,000. Why is this pertinent, you ask? Simple, I'm
looking at one of the women when I realize 1 of them is
Maria, one of the 3 remaining women left on Outback
Jack! This gets me wondering whether she will be
In case you don't remember, we are down to Natalie,
Marissa and Maria. They are currently en route for a big
challenge, Jack's mom! They are crossing the croc
infested water without hesitation, an act a few weeks
ago that would have required a miracle. Each of the
girls state how this experience has taught them a whole
lot about themselves. The group comes to a tree with a
huge ant farm on it. Jack tells them that they are a
great source of protein. He proceeds to eat several of
them, I'm thinking is this Fear Factor? Worse, he tells
them, "Eat the green part , that's the ass!" Maria is
the first to go and admits that they do taste very good.
The ants seem to have a sweet and sour taste. I'll stick
to my sour patch candy, thank you!
They finally reach Jack's "mumsy" as he calls her. The
ladies each introduce themselves to the lady whom they
have to now impress. One thing that is evident is that
Jack and his mom have a strong bond, so having the mom
on a girl's side might just swing the whole competition.
It seems that Jack's mom was in a serious accident once
which put her on life support. Throughout the whole time
she was there, Jack never left her side. The ladies sit
down with mommy without Jack, and all the questions
begin to fly. From what is their biggest flaw, to if
they can see themselves married with Jack. All the girls
give the politically correct answer to play it safe.
Then there was the sex before marriage question, haha.
Natalie says she'd wait to make it special while Marissa
feels that that's up to the two people. Eventually mom
gives Jack her opinions. She feels Maria is beautiful,
Marissa is intelligent, and Natalie is cute. Jack seems
to be leaning towards Natalie because he believes
Now its time for dating again. Jack thinks that Maria is
hiding something from him for some reason. He questions
Marissa's motives on whether she loves him or just wants
to win the competition. Oddly enough, the uber B@#ch
tells him to pick the one his heart tells him to, no
matter who it is. WOW! Natalie's date goes normal with
no problems, she's in the lead pulling away I think.
Next day JD brings us some tapes for people who know the
ladies. Each tape is some of the girls' family members
talking about each of them. No dirt unfortunately, I
thought this was a wasted gimmick which could have
really led to Jack knowing more about each girl. All the
people are too vague obviously trying to get their
Jack's decision is coming closer. His mother tells him
to follow his heart, but he feels that his heart is
telling him three different things. He meets up with the
ladies one more time. Maria tells Jack that she doesn't
are who wins, but to not pick Marissa. Jack seems
stunned by her move, saying she'd rather see him with
Natalie. He's got to wonder if the ladies were onto
something by voting Marissa off. Marissa claims that she
is here for Jack, not to just win, Jack seems to still
wonder I think.
So here we go, JD, mom, the girls, and Jack are all
here. Let me tell you guys that talking about this scene
would not give it justice no matter how I write it. Jack
calls Natalie and Marissa and asks them both to stay. At
this point, Jack begins to cry having to make this
horrible decision. Maria is taking it even worse as she
is in hysterical tears. Her knees buckle, her mascara
runs and she realizes she is going home. Jack tells her
to come here with a voice trembling with tears and
emotion. He tells her that he's sorry for the decision
he had to make and that she is very special. They
embrace several times. Maria is crying, mom is crying,
JD has his head down, and even Marissa can be scene
feeling the sadness. I encourage everyone to go to the
following link to view this scene.
Maria then heads over to mom and is consoled by her. Mom
hugs her and shares some tears with her. This is more
emotion than in any Bachelor episode I've scene, even
more than in the elimination on the last day of For Love
or Money. This scene alone makes this one of the truly
genuine and successful shows of reality TV in my
Oh wait, there's still
one more episode to see and find out who Jack picks!
