Nathan says he's a meat eater and going another week without meat is going to kill him. Michelle, meanwhile, has to run inside and puke her brains up because she isn't feeling well. I'm wondering if she's a vegetarian, and I have to go check her profile to find out for sure. We have to remember Liz from the third edition of The Bachelor, who ate meat for the first time in over a decade when it was presented to her. Now, the difference here is that in Liz's case, she could have refused, but Michelle didn't have that option. She had to eat… well, at least put it in her mouth. Dana says that she may get crabby this week but she will survive through it all. Of course, I have to say, how will they know when you’re crabby because of your lack of food choices when you're crabby pretty much all the time?
Alison wants to know how Erika and Robert landed together. She is gorgeous and he is rather dorky. That was Alison's assumption, not mine. If I had to make an assumption, though, I would have to say that it's not that far off base. Let's think about, it shall we? Julia Roberts' first husband - Lyle Lovett. Not the greatest looking of men. Dwight Yoakam (not the greatest looking of men either) has dated Sharon Stone, who stated that kissing him was like eating a dirt sandwich. Also, having worked this year's Daytime Emmy Awards, I can tell you that the really attractive actors and actresses tend to have very dumpy, dowdy, and, in some cases, outright ugly spouses. So I have to ask, is this a trend of really sexy people dating somewhat not sexy people? I think so.
But Robert just says that he has the confidence that brings the ladies to him. He even makes the cockiest statement that I have ever heard: he thinks he's doing people a favor by talking to them. Thankfully, I was born with a lovely bullshit detector that tends to signal when people like him come into my presence, so I know to treat them with kid gloves. I mean, really, now. The gall of saying that he's doing people a favor by talking to them. I think he and Jun need to hook up in the HoH room now because something tells me that they are made for each other.
Alison thinks he's down to earth while Michelle says he has a good personality. He's always laughing and smiling, she says, and that's a good thing. Well, yeah, I can see that, Michelle. I'm not gonna snub you on that fact, but then Robert has to open his mouth again and make sure that women across the nation will never have anything to do with him. Well, I'm sure there are men involved there too (gay and straight), because he says, and this is a direct quote from the Stuck On Myself Robert: "I love myself so much that it's a pleasure TO them if I get to know them." His method of getting women to come over to him in bars - he just points to the woman and crooks his finger, saying, "You come here." Oh yeah. That's gonna work now.
Justin just says that Robert is very upfront with everyone and that's why people like him. Yeah, wait until you see the tapes. Somehow the question of marrying a virgin comes up and Justin, whom I am rapidly falling for (how can you not?), says that he would do it but Rob… well, Rob says you have to take it (and he did say "it") for a test drive beforehand. So here's my question for Rob: if they are bad in bed, do you just dump them? Because, ya know, there’s more than just sex in a relationship.
Erika nails it on the head when she says that Robert is nothing more than a used car salesman who knows his product very well. It's the perfect metaphor. Would you trust Robert to sell you a car? OK, some of you might. Would you trust him with your daughter, though? I didn't think so. I'm still wondering how Erika got hooked up with him and want to praise her for getting out of it as soon as she could.
For the past few days, though, Erika has been having a hard time adjusting to spending time with Robert. And can we really blame her? We've just seen what a total sleaze Robert can be, and now we're seeing a really vulnerable Erika. She says she can't really be who she wants to be because she has to contend with Robert being there all the time and she's shut up for the most part. Dana, oddly enough, comes to her rescue and sits down and lets her just talk. She even wishes she could empathize if she was in the same position. Ultimately, she breaks down and Dana comments that she doesn't know if it's because of the emotional situation she's in or because of the memories of what Robert might have done to her in their relationship, but she's pretty emotional about it all.
Meanwhile, Alison and Jun are eavesdropping by the window and laughing about Erika crying. Apparently Erika has been crying a lot as of late and they are starting to wonder if her tears are fake. Robert even says that it's nothing more than crocodile tears designed to get a reaction out of him. It would have worked in the past, but he is immune to their effects now.
Jack has been a great father figure to her and they get along well. Jack says that the conversation in the house is pretty inane and silly and Erika is more compassionate. When she sees something that tugs at her heart, she emotes and doesn't hold back. He really likes her. Justin, however, wants Erika out. He even says to Jee that it would be another clean sweep vote to her get her out of the house. Personally, I am on Erika's side pretty much because I can't stand Robert right now.<--Previous 1 2 3 4 5 Next-->
