The big group number is a mashup of “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” and Blondie’s “One Way.” In addition, there’s a slushy fight. Shnnana is excited about that. It’s taking place at a high school swimming pool as well, which adds to the fearless thing. Lily doesn’t mind looking like a beached whale in her swimsuit because she’s accepted herself and her cellulite.
There’s no choreo this week , so no Zach. Nellis is uncomfortable with the suits and doesn’t want to wear it out in front of everyone. So she can wear that slut outfit that left her midriff bare and was less than a bra practically in the sexy challenge but she’s afraid of a one-piece bathing suit? Get your priorities straight, gurl.
We’re back to the Carpet x Charlie romance (?) thing. I thought they wouldn’t do anything and be “just friends?” So much for that. He asks if they want to snuggle together later. Seriously this is like watching two developmentally challenged children trying to kiss on the playground. I’m so over it. I was never into it, actually.
So, if I give you the rest of my Skittles will you be my girlfriend? Pretty please with sugar on top?
Charlie is unfocused in the studio again. Abe was off pitch, but Nikki seemed to ignore it. Generic Hottie 2 overthinks it again. Everyone else is fine.
Nellis has to do a sexy Paula Anderson thing coming out of the pool, but she doesn’t like it. Recapture some of that sexy energy from the other challenge! She seems to have taken like 100 steps back from where she was a few episodes ago.
Lily is essentially playing a bully who hoses everyone. Jane tells her she really needs to know who her character is in order to be successful, and that she reminds her of a young Jane. Way to encourage Lily’s bullying tendencies, producers/Jane!
Wheelchair Barbie convinces them she really wants to do the slushy thing, even thought it means getting out of her chair (anyone else notice her awkward nips? I felt bad for her at that point). She ends up having kind of a cold panic attack, though, when she does it, but then everyone applauds when she gets into the pool. It takes Nikki forever to clap when everyone starts. You can tell she’s only playing along so it looks like she has some human feelings. LOL whatabitch.
Oh, am I supposed to clap now? Damn, I hope no one noticed.
- Carpet’s lipsynch is so terrible. Last season’s contenders were much better at, well, everything than these schmos.
- More Blake-Nellis shipping! There’s no way I’m making this stuff up. They always put them together, and they’ve got real chemistry!
Look, they were holding hands! This relationship is so much more compelling than Charlie and Carpet’s. Maybe because the two people involved aren’t insufferable morons.
- Lily does a spread eagle thing no no no no no noooooooo
I‘m truly sorry you had to see this
- I tip my hat to Wheelchair Barbie, swimming with no legs is tough stuff. It also makes me notice how completely manly her shoulders and arms are, though.
- the underwater shots are pretty cool
- WB’s voice sounds really good
- this mashup is totally unnecessary. It would have been much better if they had just picked one song.
Now we get another Charlie X Carpet scene where they don’t want the other person to miss them if they’re gone. Thanks editors for the heads up that one of them will be going home! Could it be any more obvious? And I love that they’ve now moved on to making out after making the friendship pact last episode. Carpet is the worst, and Charlie just lets her toy with him.
