G-Strings" - June 30
Three down, 5 to go. The
guys are still wondering how excellent dancer Blake is
gone and why out-of-shape Bryce is there.
We fast-forward from Day 9 to Day 14. It's 7:31 am and
Bryce gets serenaded with pillows dropped on his head.
He is also covered in baby powder and he's getting
frustrated. The guys are still upset that Bryce is
still there, which is why Bryce is getting stuff
dumped on him.
With that, we go to the Arc Trainer for another
workout session. Brian complains that the lack of
women are getting the guys horny. It's now Sharon's
turn to be the victim of pranks as they do strip
sessions and body contact with Sharon - and she is
feeling erections. Oops. She thinks Ryan may have a
crush on her. 'G-d bless him, because I think he's
adorable and I'm twice Ryan's age.' And the 'Mrs.
Robinson' theme plays...
Back to the guys, who are still frustrated with Bryce.
Terry is wondering when they will start cutting more
guys so that the people who are really going to be in
the show are going to get more time and others (like,
in his opinion, Bryce) are going to get cut. Bryce,
for that matter, is getting sick of it and he says
that he's going to start to get even with everyone in
the house - starting with Josh. The only problem here
is that Josh isn't part of the group who is tormenting
Bryce, and if Bryce starts getting revenge on the
wrong people, then things are going to get ugly...
Bryce is wondering why people are against him, and
Terry decides to be the spokesman. He tells him that
they are on him because they don't think that he is
pulling his weight, so to speak. Bryce says that he
does cardio for 45 minutes, but Terry notes that he's
only been awake for 35 minutes. Terry tells Bryce that
he's trying to help, but Bryce says that he works out
and then says that he's been pranked every morning.
Terry asks him if he's been pranked 14 times, and
Bryce says no. Score - Terry 2, Bryce - 0.
Day 15 - We still have 12 people in the house, and 10
days to go before the show starts. Billy talks about
the show and how it spans different eras. Billy
explains how the personality is supposed to be shining
through, but when they perform, they have all of the
personality as the same pillow that Bryce got nailed
with. '10 days to go, and the pressures on and I''m so
not confident with what the guys are doing. If
something goes wrong, then I'm going down, because
it's my show.'
Remember when Johnny wasn't picking up the
choreography? Now it's Brian's turn, and he tells
Sharon that he's getting discouraged. Bryce is
disclosing to Rick how frustrated he's getting, but
Rick is not a Bryce supporter and he wants to see
Bryce go. Bryce feels that his only shot is to get the
emcee position - and he feels that he to compete
against Rick to get it. Rick seems to think that too,
as he says that he will do anything to get it.
David is still homesick. Chris now joins him on the
bandwagon, but explains that he would get pissed if he
stuck around only to be the last person cut. David
says the exact same thing and you can even see the
irony written on the wall...
Rick is scared that no one is getting the moves and he
is wondering if 1. he's going to make the group and 2.
if he wants to be in a group that isn't getting the
moves. Sharon feels the same way, but she is
frustrated because she wants the final group to be cut
to 7. She is also frustrated that Blake got eliminated
in favor of Bryce. She has a powwow with him, who
tells her that she needs a full week to get the final
7. Billy tells her to get the guys in tip-top shape in
4 days. Sharon thinks that it's too much and starts to
get upset. Billy tries to console her, but she says
that she can't get everything done until he sends
people home. The guys hear the tail end of it and see
Sharon mope into Billy's office to cool down.
Billy decides to bring in his Australian version of
'Thunder from Down Under' to the house. Way to break
up a rehearsal, much needed rehearsal, Billy. Billy
takes the guys down and has the Australian troupe
perform for them. The idea is to show them
personality. Terry was blown away and Rick compared it
to watching a Major League team when you're in the
Billy tells them to be over animated and they can
never smile enough. Billy divides the 12 into 2
groups, and they are all to be reviewed by the
Australian Group. While they were showing the finale
number, Sharon noted that most of the guys looked
petrified. They were petrified, but they seemed to be
getting into it. Rick played the DJ, as did Bryce.
Now for the reviews. Terry - looked fake, but the
smile was there. Bryan - they saw that he was counting
the moves, and the smile was sometimes there,
sometimes not. Ryan - they loved him and they loved
Sean. David - Nervous, but good, but get rid of the
beard. Marco - The smile was good, but he needs to
stop thinking. Tony - Stop looking down at your feet,
but the smile is phenomenal. Chris - Good smile, but
shave the legs. Bryce - Great personality and face
(which gets dirty looks from Brian, Ryan and Sean),
but he has to get on the treadmill (which gets smirks
from Brian, Ryan and Sean, while Tony says that he
gives Bryce props for working it). Josh - The smile
was good, but he seemed not too sure on the
choreography. Rick - They loved his emcee work and he
was great in the front room, but he dropped the smile
when he was in the back and he can't do that.
The troupe was asked who they didn't like, and they
are torn between Terry (too much attitude), Chris (no
rhythm) and Brian (No Rhythm) and Bryce (chubby),
though they liked Bryce's smile. Billy tells the
troupe to spend the night with the group, and then
come back to him with a decision on who to eliminate.
The troupe come down to a warm welcome from the
contestants. They talk about girlfriends and say that
it's possible - not advised at the beginning. Josh
talks about being the runt to Dave (who is the
smallest Australian in the bunch), who tells Josh to
keep his head up and keep training, adding that a lot
of times it's the little guy that gets the attention.
Bryce talks about losing the weight, while Josh talks
about bulking up. The Australians add that a female
audience will know if someone is gay or stuck up, so
they have to display themselves. The troupe talks
about how fun it is to travel the world, while Rick is
all pumped up after listening to the tales of women
pursuing the Aussies. One of them talks to Chris about
missing his kids, and Chris says that he hasn't spoken
to his kids in 17 days. They talk some more and Chris
is tearing up. He needs - and gets - a hug. AwwwBarf.
He now has a resolve to make the troupe because he
wants to get his family a house and get a better life
for everyone. AwwwwBarf.
Day 15 - The guys are waking up and recovering from
last night. They spend the morning eating, the
afternoon rehearsing, and the night...getting
eliminated? The troupe talks to Billy about who to
eliminate. They say that personality-wise, they can't
eliminate anyone, but they CAN eliminate someone based
on issues. Uh-oh. That doesn't sound too good for
It also doesn't sound too good for Bryce, who's
noticing that Sharon is picking favorites such as
Tony, Ryan, Brian and Sean to do more work than the
others. As certain people like Rick and Terry chat
about how concerned they are, Sharon comes over and
yells at them, adding that she doesn't know who's
getting selected to leave, so she has no clue how to
choreograph it. Hence, if she doesn't know, then they
should stop talking about it and stop analyzing what
she does. She calls a break at that point and they all
While they are dispersing, Billy calls Chris into his
room. Billy wants Chris to know what's on his mind,
and he says that he's depressed that he can't call his
kids. Billy reminds him that he will be spending 6 to
12 months on the road, and if you're having problems
now, then what's going to happen when he's on a world
tour. He's concerned that Chris is going to no-show on
the trip, and for that, Chris is letting him go. David
had the same problem, but the difference is that David
told him and Chris didn't. Hence, it's over for a now
weepy Chris who walks back to his room and packs up.
Chris tells the guys that Billy eliminated him - but
he also says that Billy may be right. The guys were
stunned about it, but Chris warned David to make sure
not to show his emotion of missing his kids when he
performs. Chris leaves by telling his kids that he's
coming home, and then getting in the car to a salute
of middle fingers as he gets in the jeep and leave.
Next week - the guys finally get their first chance to
perform for the ladies - but what they don't know is
that a group of women will decide which one of them
will not get to be in the final 10. Join us next week
to see which guy will have their dreams snatched from
them by one of the women that they could potentially
be performing for.
