Danielle does not deal with it well. Despite the effusive apologies, she snottily tells the staff they can buy her a new dress when they ask if there is anything they can do. She heads off to the bathroom and pouts and moans in there for a very long time.
Melissa is meeting Brock who is a professional baseball player. She likes his look and thinks it’s hot that he’s a professional athlete. But then she says that all her friends say baseball player’s are assholes, so she’s worried.
For Pete’s sake, use your own mind and form your own opinions, girl!
Melissa does a great job of answering Brock’s rude and direct question of why is she single by saying she hasn’t met the right person yet. She’s doing well and even when she’s dripping with bouillabaisse, she jokes that she loves the mingling scent of shrimp and perfume. But Brock does nothing to help her out except laugh and say he thought it was kind of funny.
Your friends were right, Melissa. Don’t listen to me.
Quick shots of Stephanie getting dumped on and jumping in shock. She seems to take it well. Shalana gets lucky and doesn’t get more than a drink tossed on her shoulder, but Aubrey shows some personality by insisting she finish her drink and standing with her as he shows empathy for the situation.
Despina also seems to do a good job. She realized what was going to happen almost before it happened thank to her experience as a waitress and when it does happen she is still smiling as her underwear swims in fish sauce.
The bad news is that she’s not wearing her own dress.
This is what I love about this show. It’s so great to have a reality show where no one is out to get anyone else. These girls are all in this together and super supportive. They lend each other clothes, help each other decide what to wear and I’m guessing give styling advice since Danielle is starting to look more and more lovely with straight hair and non-orange ho clothes.
Speaking of, our lovely lady is still stomping around the bathroom too upset to continue her date. She comes out and tells Corey she can’t handle it and pulls the plug.
Even Corey seems shocked that she can’t handle a bowl of spilled soup.
I feel bad for her kid and the messes he made as a baby. This girl needs to take herself less seriously and gain some perspective.
It’s the next morning and time for Steve to pay the piper. By now all the girls have talked about their horrible date mishap and realized the whole thing was a set up. Steve explains the purpose was to have them show their men they can handle a situation where things go wrong.
He compliments Donna on keeping her date from decking the manager while making light of the situation. Chris comes on in confessional and says he’s very attracted to a woman who can handle that kind of problem with such dignity.
Yay! I want to kiss him, he likes me and
I bet he has a maid to wash his towels.
Surprisingly, Steve says they all did well but Danielle had the hardest time. I guess it’s true she didn’t go all Bad Girls Club on the server, but she was still bitchy and cancelled her date. Still, apparently Corey thought she handled the situation well. Corey was impressed because he figured she might just disappear and leave him at the table to wonder what happened to his date. So the fact that she returned and told him she couldn’t handle things scored her big points in his book. He wants to see her again.
Good news, Ms. Low Standards; it would appear
you are dating Mr. Low Expectations.
