The field has been cut in half, as
things got hot between Billy and Laura, the beauties got fit, and Laura and Ray
got the brunt of the abuse. Ray was sent from the Hall of Beauty, leaving four
Laura says that the judges see potential in her. Billy's hoping
that Smalls comes back... and here she is, a 21-year-old girl ready to play her
like a 31-year-old man. And no one's happier than... the 31-year-old man.
The next morning brings the sunshine... and the
primping... and the next challenge... in a limo.
Everyone get ready to go... no place in particular.
They arrive at a salon... where Vanessa gives them...
TODAY'S CHALLENGE: a hot date
You and your date
will attend a high-society function in your honor. They'll work the room with
their beauty and personality. And of course, there's a twist... we've selected
the dates for them.
Laura... say hello to your momma, Barb!
Joel... say hello to your momma, Maria!
say hello to your momma, Nameless!
And finally... Billy can't say hello to his
momma, because she pulled out at the last second. Now... say hello to your
They'll have to get all glammed up to achieve a red carpet look.
They'll have the help of stylist Jordan Feldman, but ultimately, your parents
will have the final say. The judges will declare a winner and a bottom two to
meet them in the Hall of Beauty.
What they DON'T know is that Jordan, aside
from being a heck of a stylist, is also a heck of an actor. Will the beauties
sell our their competition to him for an edge in the challenge? That's for HIM
Private consultation time. Billy thinks that everyone is on the same playing
field. PASS. Julia... same thing. Joel... has a gay man touching his rear. And a
gay man listening to him rag on Billy. FAIL. Laura talks about her boobs... and
Billy. She'd throw him under the bus in a minute. EPIC FAIL.
Joel just wants his mom to be pampered, while Bill gets... just a little bit
Now to pick dresses... and suits. Everyone seems to be a little bit adept at
this... except for Smalls, who complains that a short green number "won't do her
any justice at all."
Okay, the party... They'll arrive and what they
don't know is that there will
be a secret judge... Ashton Kutcher's mom. She'll meet the contesti and report
back to the judges.
We start with Laura hamming it up on the red carpet, while Billy is as
natural as possible. They have a genuine interest in people. Billy doesn't even
remember what he said. Laura notes that he uses the same "small-town vitamin guy
from Idaho" spiel.
Laura... has an issue with vocabulary. Joel ... "T & A will only get you so
far." He wants to give two minutes to everyone in the room. That is enough to
tire anyone out. And finally, Julia and her mom talk up a storm. ... and
HEY! IT'S FRANKLIN RUEHL! As for Julia and mom... "They weren't really
?Now for one final test... A hired party guest is having a wardrobe
malfunction and a killer buzz. Will anyone save her from embarrassment? Yep.
Now for the final report... Diane (Ashton's momma) is very impressed by Joel.
He was just cruising this whole night, but at the same time, we saw the softer
side of Joel. Julia and Billy... were trying to sell themselves. That was
Billy's schtick. As for Laura, the prettiest one this evening... other people
ran the conversation. She seems very into herself.
But we have to crown a winner. Tonight, that winner... is Billy.
Now to see who will meet the judges in the Hall of Beauty tomorrow. Those
people are Laura... and Joel.
Laura thinks that the judges are not seeing the big picture. She doesn't
really know what to change here. She's going to fight to the death. Meanwhile,
Joel says Laura has been given opportunity after opportunity to show her
personality... and she never delivered.
One person who will be sad to see her go... Billy.
The judges think Laura is pretty... but they're tired of all curves, no
brain. Joel is hot, but the judges disagree on his personality. Vanessa thinks
that he's tender on the inside, while Nole thinks that he's a little bit rough.
Cheryl... sides with nobody. She says that it's time to focus on inner beauty.
The house is feeling more and more empty as Joel and Laura head over to...
THE HALL OF BEAUTY
... no Final Straw this week? Well, it is the second time being here for
Laura didn't expect to be here tonight, but she thought having her mother by
her side is important.
Joel says that he was here for all the right reasons. He doesn't think that
looks alone will win this competition.
Nole says that Joel needs to have that certain "je ne sais quoi." Cheryl was
hoping that Laura would interact better with the contestants.
The person leaving the competition tonight... is LAURA.
But what would happens when Laura learns of the secret twist of this whole
competition? "I just don't see how I'm in this position right now. I thought I
showed personality last night. Apparently Joel did."
Next week, we're bearing all in more ways than one, en route to naming the
most beautiful person inside and out.
