Last week: The boys outperformed the girls at the visiting rodeo when they stayed on the bulls longer, and the girls had to make them dinner in their lingerie. Shae and Joey had a painful (to watch) date. Tyler and Katie flirted. A lot. Shain got his new truck stuck in a mudhole. And we met Najee,
my Salwa’s boyfriend.
Episode 9: Pitching a Tent
We begin at Shain’s house, where Joey is throwing something at Tyler for busting out his headlight, and hits him in the balls. Shain emerges from his shed with a jar and a garden till and explains that he’s burying his money. Predictably, the other guys want him to share, but Shain condescends to explain to them that the reason they don’t have any money like he does is because they’re not responsible enough. Not responsible enough to bury their money in the backyard. From what we’ve seen so far from Shain, I would hazard to guess that his backyard is full of jars he forgot he buried.
Anyway, the guys ask him if he’s going camping with them that weekend. They both have dates; Joey has Shae and Tyler has Katie. Shain, ever the silly chick-flick sidekick that he is, realizes that in order to fit in, he’s going to have to find a date, too! He consults with his friends and decides he needs to ask Cara. He’s been working hard all summer on hooking up with her anyway. Tyler weirdly encourages this, and I say weirdly because he was the last one that hooked up with her. Presumably.
At the girls’ place, Cara is making an omelet out of macaroni and cheese. Tyler is flummoxed at the thought of this combination, but Cara calmly explains that her dad used to make spaghetti omelets all the time (gross.) He then ungratefully makes gagging noises as he tries the omelet. He complains that the cheese is too hot (Cara put too much hot sauce in or something?) He goes outside to recover for some reason, and Katie runs out to console him and make sure that the spicy food isn’t causing his death, while Cara samples the omelet to make sure she’s right, and he is the crazy one.
Maybe it’s the Febreze, not the hot sauce, that’s giving it that special zest of poison.
Cara tells us that she feels guilty about Tyler’s near-death experience, so she sets up a game of Truth or Dare. The best way to apologize to me is bringing me chocolate, and I’m guessing for Tyler it’s beer, so I’m not sure how a game of Truth or Dare is supposed to constitute an apology, but let’s just go with the premise we’ve been given. Anna dares Tyler to kiss Katie’s big toe. Cara, seeing that control of
Tyler’s dick the game is slipping away from her, whines loudly about it, and then when Tyler completes the dare flawlessly, vengefully dares Katie to wag her butt in front of Anna’s face for two minutes.
