Last time, the beauties made magic with Penn &
Teller.... but it was breaking the magician's code that caused Michael to
disappear. Now eight are in the running to be the Face of Vegas.
Once again, Regina feels a little bit vindicated on
being sent back into the loft. She says that she'll never let herself be in the
bottom two again. Pay attention, this is relevant.
Now there's five girls and three guys. "Does that
mean a girl is going home next?" Again, relevant.
Meanwhile, Liz gets straight up balls-to-the-wall
piss drunk. Not relevant... just sad-looking.
In the middle of the night, we have Craig walking
in his sleep. Actually, it's 6:45a, and he's on the treadmill. Amy has never
made coffee to wake herself up (another item in the long list of things Amy has
never done for herself).
Challenge #3: Grace Under Fire.
The players will be playing reporter as they
question men-and-women-on-the-street. Their videos will be shown to a focus
group. We'll see if they can handle criticism gracefully? Even more important,
will the players cheat given the opportunity? Because they will be given the
questions in advance AND told NOT to open the questions until the interview.
And Amy has never heard of a focus group.
Surprise surprise surprise.
So who peeks and who doesn't?
Regina: FAIL SO HARD.
All the girls looked. All the guys didn't. So the
ladies MAY be able to pronounce "ostensible" and "cacophony".
Craig's video is first. He's a bit of a showman,
while Amy is a little "You're creepy, get away." Erika tries to make people warm
up to her... but there's a difference between that and getting a little crazy.
Taylor was stiffer than David's hair. And Liz is her usual charming self. Regina
was a bit of a cannon. David... is being coached by the person he's
And no one knows how to say "ostensibly".
Now to bring in the focus group, who are going to
be frank with their critique. They're for real. They do NOT work for the show.
Meanwhile, the players will be watching through a one-way mirror. So how were
Taylor: "Boring." "I liked him." "(His shirt)
needs to be pressed or something." - FAIL
Erika: "I thought that was the Face of Vegas." "Talk about into yourself." "I
thought she was an idiot." "She was the Face of Spring Break." - PASS
David: "I really really liked him." "Are you allowed to award negative points.
He kinda looks like Vanilla Ice with a spray-tan." - PASS
Michelle: "Did you graduate from high school?" "She really tried to bring out
the people she was talking to." - PASS
Craig: "He's my guy." "He was adorable." "I thought he was weird." - PASS
Regina: "She was very bubbly." "Not into people." "She's a DINGBAT!" "Put her
back on her pole." - FAIL SO HARD...
Amy: "I sound really dumb." That's from Amy, by the way. "Most genuine." "Very
smooth." "I thought she was the worst one yet." - PASS
Liz: "Horrible." "She looked like a Playboy model to me." "Needs to be a little
more schooling." - PASS
And Liz brushes off the challenge the only way
she can... By getting drunk. And annoying people. (C-Note: this is probably the
most horrible thing I've ever said in 10 years of writing for this site... but I
WISH she was watching herself right now being a total ass.)
And now the results of the challenge... The
winner of the challenge... CRAIG! The bottom three: Liz, David, and Taylor. We
can send one person back to safety... David... go back to the cast, you're safe.
Liz and Taylor are heading to the Final Face-Off...
BUT FIRST, the house rallies behind Taylor as
they tell him that he has ONE mission: rub out Liz. Liz meanwhile knows that
she's a target. Craig, on the other hand, thinks that Liz will come back and
come back stronger.
NOW let's think about this for a second... Liz
would be too easy of an out here. She's annoying. She's catty. She's failed ALL
of her challenges. She's basically on the doorstep of an elimination.
You've watched shows like these long enough to
know that things are RARELY this easy. "Neither Taylor NOR Liz is going home
tonight. But another contestant is."
The facts are these: the rules of the competition
forbid the use of cell phones or other means of communicating with the outside
world, because that way they can divine the true purpose of this competition.
One of the players has... and did. So there's no Final Straw tonight, we're just
going to let Liz and Taylor writhe for a moment before delivering the news that
both of them have been given a bye.
Now for Regina, who cops to everything and BEGS
for one last chance. They'd entertain it, however, that's not all that the
cameras caught. And to tell you the truth, by cheating and giving into the
temptation, she's proven probably more than the scope of this competition could
that her true beauty is suspect.
Taylor and Liz are given another shot, but
they've cashed in all of their chips. Can they avoid the bust out? Stay tuned.
