The gang is getting some last words of encouragement from some guy, who tells them that the most important thing to do is “believe in yourself.” Just kidding! He tells them if they hit the ground, for goodness’ sake, RUN!
Shain’s up first! He gets about a foot and a half from the pen before falling off the bull, who almost gores him, and then he can’t even run to the fence because it’s so muddy.
Katie outs herself as the most intelligent of the group.
Tyler’s up next! This is the same guy who literally jumped off a bridge because of peer pressure. I’m not expecting this to go well. It does, however, go a heck of a lot better than Shain’s experience, because he gets about ten feet from the pen, and lands gracefully, easily running to the fence before he got even a little bit gored.
Now Joey! He actually has a pretty good strategy of keeping the bull as close to the fence as possible, so that when he falls off, he can hop right onto the fence. He survives.
Najee’s turn! Holy crap, he’s lasting a LONG time… that’s hot. I have a serious crush on this boy. But when he falls off, it gets ugly. There was a tense moment in there when I was pretty sure he was about to get crushed by the bull. Salwa isn’t too concerned, and she seems pretty proud that he lasted the longest.
Ashley, you’re going to have to be more specific. Which of the cowboys are you talking about?
Ashley’s up, and she’s having serious second thoughts. They seemingly let the bull out without her go-ahead, and she falls off immediately. And lands on her neck. Oof. She’s seriously shaken.
And yet it looks like Katie’s going to go for it… until she decides at the last second not to do it. Again, smartest one in the group. Tyler consoles her by saying when he did it, it was really scary, and he’d hate for something to happen to her pretty face anyway.
But Cara’s angry with Katie because Najee posted seven seconds, and now it’s all down to her to beat that time, or she has to cook dinner for Shain in her lingerie. Anyway, Cara falls off the bull pretty quickly, but it was definitely the most graceful fall of the group.
As the guys wait for their dinner, Shain retells the story of his bull ride. To hear him tell it, it was epic. And while he’s telling the story, he has a little boy face and gesticulates in such a manner that I feel like he’s six-year-old boy telling a made-up story about spacemen.
I feel like I should be cutting up a hot dog into bite-size pieces for him.
