So everyone gathers at Shain’s to ride the fake bull he and Tyler have been building. It’s basically a swingset with a plastic barrel, strung up by rope. The ladies seem to have their doubts as to its authenticity. Salwa swings by with her boyfriend Najee (Welcome, Najee. You are a fine specimen of a man.) Shain’s dad, Dale, offers $20 to whoever can stay on the bull the longest. Hmm… this is a contest that can easily be rigged by those operating the ropes. We’ll see.
Ashley’s up first! And she falls off immediately. As does Anna. Najee gets about two seconds. Katie doesn’t do too well. Shain hangs on for 5 seconds. Shae does 4 seconds. Salwa’s got the strategy, because she wraps her leg up in the rope, and she is able to hang on. Ashley seems a little peeved. She’s just jealous she didn’t think of it!
Shae is blowdrying her cowboy boots and the rest of the girls are getting ready for the rodeo, nervous about riding a bull. Najee gives the ladies fashion advice, and tells Salwa he’s just trying to make friends with her girls. Hey, it’s always worked for the gays, so why not Najee?
The gang arrives at the rodeo, and Ashley proposes making a bet: girls vs guys, and if the guys have the best score, they have to cook dinner for the girls in their boxers. If the ladies win, they have to cook dinner for the guys in bras and panties. Shae wins points with me when she shoots down Shain’s offer to cook wearing a man-thong because then “no one wins.” Amen.
Ashley and Cara take in the sights. And by sights I mean skinny cowboys riding a bull. Ashley is all atwitter, hitting on the cowboys and bragging that she’s there to ride a bull, too. Cara tells us that even she thinks Ashley is coming on too strong. That’s saying a lot from the chick who had sex in Anna’s bed with Tyler when her own bedroom was right down the hall.
Cute couple alert! Joey and Shae are watching contestant after contestant fall hard to the ground after riding the bulls, and Shae is getting nervous. She confesses to Joey that she’s been fretting about it all day, and he just holds her hand and tells her she’s going to be all right. He then tells her that it’s all worth it because he’ll get to watch her cook dinner in her underwear. I have mixed feelings about this. First, it’s sweet that he’s encouraging her to follow through on something she decided she was going to do. But I also feel like he’s encouraging her to do something pretty risky just so he (and his friends, by the way) can ogle her while she cooks. So basically the “cute while also gross” coupling of Joey and Cara has not yet defined itself as one or the other.
