I have such a love-hate relationship with this show. It is a train wreck and I can't look away. The parlor tricks, the cheesiness, the freaking nod to Top Gun with Jake riding next to the beach on a motorcycle with the aviator shades, it is almost too much. Almost, but apparently not quite because I watched the full two hours.
Do the producers tell these women to bring something when they get out of the limo? This is the part of the show that I literally cringe and hide my face in a pillow. The double-sided coin, the peacock feather, the girl acting like a plane, etc. It kills me. I wish each of these girls could read "A Little Advice for the Ladies" that I wrote before they come on the show.
Jake has a great body, no doubt about it. But he is just so wholesome. Does that make me evil? I can't get past his good boy image. Even when he showers, I feel nothing. It is like watching the seminary president pretend to be sexy.
Let's talk turkey. The most annoying girls--First: Michelle. What the? She got a rose? Does anyone else think it is a little disturbing how she is the female equivalent of Jake and he is turned off by her? That girl is unstable. He just feels bad for her:
Second: Vienna Sausage aka. Paris Hilton jr. aka Dumbo. I have all kinds of nicknames for her. Poor thing:
Third: Christina. She does the freakin airplane with Jake during the party--you know--for those who didn't see it--like I do with my toddler when I lay on the floor and he flies in the air on my legs. Yeah--it was really romantic. She also brought parting gifts for all the girls. That went over well. Even Jake looked unimpressed with that move:
Fourth: Ashley--the girl in the pilot uniform. I hate that stuff. Jake seemed to love it and I think I would have liked her otherwise but c'mon:
Fifth: Channy. I actually loved her. She provided the funniest moment of the show when she translated her romantic Cambodian message to Jake--"I would love to have you land your plane on my landing strip." I am still giggling as I type this. There is a chance that with the language barrier she just thought she was using the flying analogy for love and not in the literal bikini wax sort of way. But maybe I'm giving her too much credit:
Finally: Roslyn--the model. (There were like five models on the show this time including a spokesmodel and a fit model.) 10 bucks says Roslyn is the one who ends up sleeping with a member of the film crew:
There you have it--as much as I love the bag on the show--I love the drama. Monday nights are fun again! I'm rooting for Ali. She reminds me of someone I would be friends with in real life:
I also liked Tenley even though she is a divorcee and was forward enough to kiss Jake, I think she's sweet and there for the right reasons!:
Who are your early favorites? Did you like that Jill and Ed came back? I didn't mind it. How do we feel about Jake this time around? Discuss.
