It was interesting to watch JennyLee when Niels wouldn't let her have her way. If she's that quick to sulk around with emotional outbursts when things don't go her way, and just turns into a 5 year old girl, it makes you wonder what she's like when real adversity comes her way.

that moment between Niels and Nate was pretty cool. Niels was crying! I was touched! Then Cece and whoever else laughed. Bitches.

I was really bumed that Ceci won. I would have love to see Andrea keep trying to win. I'm pulling for Mario and Nadia now.

As long as Nadia or Erin's team wins, I'd be okay with it. No Megan or Cece or JennyLee, please.

Seems like the guys handled their auction dates fairly well. Drew asked his date about travel and when the date mentioned she had been to Chicago he asked her if she had been to Michigan Avenue.

I felt sorry for Nate, his date reminded me of the girl in "Coming to America" who wanted to act and direct and direct her own movies that she would act in.

Now that it's all blonde on the beauties side I imagine they will try to weed out Nadia and Erin. It's a shame that Cece, Megan, and JennyLee are not even trying to broaden their horizons and gain something from this experience.

well, they are playing to their stereotypes quite well, in that regard.

Well I don't feel this show is as rigged as it was last year, I am still enjoying this year a lot more. The catfights looked to be really hyped up the next few weeks. I hope if they continue this show next year, I hope the creators really evaluate the contestants among the women, these women only appear to be on the show for a vacation from everyday life and nothing more.

I was just thinking, would it throw too many people for a loop if they came back next year and the "beauties" were men and the "geeks" were women. It'd be different.

I would like that. There is some geeky hotness out there. Has to be. But aren't guys less likely to fall for the nerdy chick? I mean, "hot" guys? Men are obviously wired to be more visual than women. I'm not sure it would work. Jennylee can be attracted to Nate, but "Brad Pitt" cannot be attracted to, say, "Mac" on Veronica Mars? Anyone else have some examples?

I think the total make-over for geeky gals would be pretty neat to see.

The girls didn't have to do shit for their challenge.

I wish Andrea had won - would have made things more interesting next week. Plus she was the most attractive girl - great tits, great legs, pretty face.

Jennylee is really annoying. at Niels not knowing his date's name at the end of the date.

Come on, they could get "Brad Pitt" looking guys and really geeky girls and as long as they aren't fat and there's a little alcohol in the house, the men will bone the girls.

And if the Brad Pitt wasn't famous and he was on this show, at the ages these people are and Tina Majorino was the same age and on the show, Brad would totally do her.

Nothing gets in the way of the wiring that a man will "hit" just about anything that breathes. Except fatties. Those are left for unattractive men.

I actually thought Mario looked better before the makeover. He could have shortened the sideburns but his hair didn't look good.

I was laughing my ass off at the song they kept playing when Niels was getting his makeover.

Agreed. He got a total Dudley Moore cut.

Damn do I hate Cecille, it's too bad she's paired up with Nate because he seems like a pretty cool dude.

Well, to be fair, Nate is less a 'geek' than he is bohemian, and before AND after the makeover you could totally see him dating some hot hippie/artist chick.

What was the ridiculous song that was playing during the makeovers? Myself and my wife cracked up laughing at it.

Yeah, I'd like to know this as well. I might sneak it on my wife's phone as a gag ringtone.

Well tonight seemed like quite a fun episode, its nice to see everyone is starting to hate cecile. I wonder what the big twist will be next week, maybe Andrea will comeback. Hated to see Drew and Erin go as the both seemed to embrace what the show is really about.

That's 3 consecutive weeks where nice players (women) who I would have preferred to stay in the house have gone home instead. The first 1 was vs. Andrea, so it wasn't so bad.

I really can't stand 3 of the 4 women left and 2 of them are not even attractive. Cecille, the body with no head that made the remark about being in the mile high club. JennyLee is attractive, but after the Andrea incident I wanted her to go home tonight.

Has it been mentioned in this thread that they've gone from getting 3 questions to 2 each this season? Anyone speculate on why the change? What would taking away 1 question really do to help the show? I'd liked it better with 3 questions. If you fell behind early, you had a better chance of coming back.

Man, I've had that MP3 for a long time. That and the Pet Shop Boys "Opportunities (Let's make lots of money)".
