This is without a doubt going to be an interesting show. Everything that I’ve been told that I post below did happen during filming. Are there other things that happen on the show? Sure. A lot of this stuff was told to me in a rush, so there could be minor details left out or what not, but the challenges, eliminations, and dates are all accurate. As I get to find out more, I will report that as well, but this is the gist of the season. The one thing that I don’t know much about, other than who gets eliminated when, is the actual elimination ceremonies. You’ll see that I tell you who goes home, but obviously, there’s decision making behind all that, and lying, and backstabbing, and drama, etc. That part I’m not aware of. I just know who goes home when. Once the episodes start airing, I guess we’ll see the reasoning behind these people’s exits and why.
One thing I found interesting once I heard who the 11 girls were that were cast, and then shown the cast photos, was “What’s the ratio of implants to non-implants?” It seemed like every chick on this show had them, but alas, I was wrong. Granted, it’s more than half, but only six of the eleven girls this season have implants. They are: Elizabeth, Gwen, Jessie, Gia, Krisily, and Ashley. Which leaves the five “natural” women being Peyton, Michelle, Tenley, Natalie, and Nikki. I think the wild card in all this was Nikki, since hers are so big and voluptuous, people just assumed they were fake. Nope. That would’ve tipped the scales to 7-to-4 in favor of implants vs non-implants. You know, just in case you were all keeping score of this at home. Ok, maybe that was just me.
So the basics:
-Show starts Aug. 9th, a week after Ali’s season ends, and runs for six episodes.
-Filming ended last week with four remaining people (2 “couples”). The whole cast is being brought back sometime in September, and in that taping, the final four will compete AS COUPLES against each other, so 2-on-2. The winning “couple” will then face off against each other 1-on-1 for the 250k prize supposedly voted on by the other contestants. Still not really clear on that, but that seems to be how the winner will be chosen.
–So yes, I’m told there will be a sole winner, and not a 250k prize divided up to a winning team. Although I wouldn’t put it past this show to change the rules at the end and make this some battle of “love vs money”. But I’ve been told the 250k prize will go to one person, and not two.
-All 19 contestants lived in bunk beds in the same living area, and the “fantasy suite” was upstairs in the mansion.
-On the mini-group dates, the person that is given a rose is immune from the next night’s vote and can’t be voted out. I sound like Probst now.
-The voting is done as follows: The guys meet and vote out a girl, and the girls meet to vote out a guy. This is done by the guys placing a headshot of the girl they want eliminated into a ballot box, and the girls do the same with a guys headshot. Chris and Melissa preside over these elimination ceremonies and pull the picture out to reveal who gets sent home. Ok, on to your spoilers…
1st challenge – Game of Twister. Came down to Craig McKinnon from Canada and Jessie Sulidis. Craig won. He took Jessie, Gwen, and Elizabeth on a date. Went to the Greek Theater in LA. He chose to give the rose to Jessie, then they continued on with their date and saw someone in concert. Can’t remember who though. Some band. Craig and Jessie were presented a fantasy suite card to spend the night upstairs. At first they were going to, then decided it against it. They never hooked up. And when I use the term “hook up” in this column, I mean “making out”. From what I was told, there was very little sex happening in this house. But hey, it could’ve been they were sneaking around and I didn’t find out. Only two people were known to be having sex and that’s Jesse Kovacs and Elizabeth Kitt. They’re the only two people on this show who came into it as an actual couple. They’ve been dating for a few months. And having lots of sex I’m sure. Juan and Michelle are the first two voted out of the house.
2nd challenge – Pie Eating Contest. Guys vs. guys, girls vs. girls. Whoever can eat the most in a certain amout of time wins. People were getting sick and puking. Gia won for the girls, Weatherman won for the guys.
Gia took Wes, Craig, and Jesse Beck on a date somewhere in LA. They went into some tent that had a Moroccan theme. Gia gave Wes the rose. They didn’t hook up. Don’t think they were offered fantasy suite either.
Weatherman took Gwen, Ashley, and Peyton on his date. They all got in bikinis at some painting place where their bodies were on a canvas or something like that. Weatherman gave a rose to Gwen. No fantasy suite. No hooking up for them.
During this time, these were the people who were hooking up back at the house: Jesse Beck and Natalie were making out, Dave and Jessie Sulidis made out in a hot tub, and Jesse Kovacs and Elizabeth were making babies. However, something went down where people turned on Jessie and Craig because they thought they were forming some sort of alliance from their first date, and Jessie and Craig were the next two voted out of the house.
