And on we go!
Rachel and Andrea in separate interviews (they aren’t aware they other is still in play), say they were hurt that they weren’t picked (no well wishes offered to Preston and PJ, I notice). But, they are “honored” to be “the girl selected” to choose between 15 guys. They like the idea of being in the driver’s seat (as you can imagine), and both are hopeful that they can find someone they can have fall in love with.
Well, for that, they will need boys! The gentleman are riding in limousines toward creepy Jordan Manor, and we get a chance to meet them:
The guys step out of their limos, and promptly size each other up. Then comes Jordan, thru the slowly opening doors, which makes the guys gulp unconsciously. Jordan, in his curious detached-yet-bemused way welcomes them to For Love Or Money.
The guys look at each other, a bit wearily. Brian says every guy had dollar signs in his eyes at that point. David K says, “oh lord!” but even he isn’t sure if that was a good or bad exclamation. Ben says he saw the show, and remembers Erin picking the money over Rob Campos last year. Mike says there is no price on love for him.
In the kitchen, as the guys yuck it up with each other, Morgan says he can love anyone for a million dollars (I gotta admit, I can too!). Caleb tells us he has a one in fifteen shot at a million dollars (good math skills!), “I’ve seen the show and it still hasn’t hit me!”
At breakfast, the guys have obviously been waiting a while, as someone asks, “does anyone like waiting?” Heh! In comes Jordan, who tells them to change and meet in him the Event Room (why do they have to change to meet creepy ol’ Jordan? I‘d be in the Event Room in my gym clothes!). The men do change, and they are anxious. In the Event Room, Jordan goes through his whole schpiel about meeting an extraordinary woman (“and trust me, you will not be disappointed!” Any sentence that starts ‘trust me’ is trouble in the making!), and the bit with the blank checks. A few guys who were familiar with the show last year furrow their brows.
Jordan has another twist for us and them, however. The guys will know the value of their checks as they play! Jordan reshuffles the checks and tells the guys to pick one and go in to the vault room for the “reveal” (reveal? Swan-lingo!).
David S. - tells us 8 was his ex-girlfriend’s lucky number, so he choose the eighth check! Bad move! His check is revealed to be for $1. Very bad move. He tells us that he has $1.03 in change in pocket right now! “8 is not lucky!”
Chris - $250,000, “if there is no love connection, will I be playing for the money? Absolutely!”
Caleb - $1 million, “This is unreal!”
Alex - $500,000 “it’s a no-brainer at this point.”
David K. - $1 million, “It makes the decision more difficult.”
Steven - $1 (He doesn‘t look! He places check on his portrait and turns his back!) “I wanted nothing to do with it. As far as I’m concerned, I didn’t draw a check.”
Wes - $1 million, “wow”
Mike - $250,000 “It’s a no-brainer for me. I want a shot at love!”
Brian - $50,000, “Not bad for a day’s work.”
Rudy - $1 million “I almost fainted!”
Josh - $500,000 “I’m glad it wasn’t a dollar, but if it was, I’d still be here.”
Jai - $1, “I am worth one slim dollar!”
Ben - $1 million “this complicates things immensely!”
Chad - $100,000 “I don’t plan on telling anyone the value of my check.”
Morgan $1 - “I can’t be stuck with a dollar, there has to be another twist!”
The guys reconvene in the Event Room. Jordan tells them that they cannot tell the woman about the value of their checks. The guys disperse. Mike says all the guys were asking about each other ‘s checks. Steven tells a group that he didn’t look at his check. Ben calls him “a bold-faced liar.” Not in a joking way. At all. To us, Steven asks, “Whooo does he think he is?!”
To us, Ben says everyone has their reasons for being there, who’s to say what is the right reason? Rudy says he thinks he’s there for the right reason -- a million dollars! Chris is anxious to meet the woman, “then I’ll know what I’m playing for!”
Rachel arrives in the limousine (wearing more ugly shoes. I hate her taste in shoes! But, I digress), glowing, yes, Jordan, she is ready to meet the 15 men vying for her attention. He takes out back, and she says she immediately thought of being dumped by Preston (she went down swinging, though!). “I definitely like that there aren’t any other women to compete with!” Snicker-snicker-snicker!
Meanwhile, as one limousine leaves, another pulls up, with Andrea looking radiant (nice dress, nice shoes). Oh yes, Jordan, she’s absolutely ready to meet the 15 men vying for her attention. Jordan leads her out back (oh, this is gonna be good!). Andrea says as she walked through the foyer, she remembered the drama of before (clips of Rachel and Andrea going at it).
As Andrea comes into view, Rachel ‘s eyes bug, then she closes them like she can wish Andrea away, and opens them again, the hatred as evident as their blue color. Andrea, finally looks up in mid-stride and hesitates a bit, saying “Oh, hahaha, very funny!”
As the meet, Andrea says, “Do you know what you’re doing here?” Rachel says, “I thought I did…” Rachel says to us upon seeing Andrea, she thought, “This is the last person I ever wanted to see again.” Andrea says Rachel was so sure that she was going to get Preston, and she didn’t, which strikes her as funny!
Rachel: “I didn’t see anything funny at all. If it weren’t for the million dollar check, I might have walked away.”
As the ladies awkwardly wait for Jordan, Rachel whispers, “Aren’t you nervous.” Andrea says no, lightly. Rachel clearly calls her a “dumbass” in her head, judging from the look on her face!1 2 Next-->
