“What…did I dip…my hair ends in?”
So who’s the other chump of the week? Also Jim, a grizzled guy with greasy-yet-dry blonde hair. His mouth fascinates me from this moment forward. Also his way of speaking. Otherwise, I can’t stand the guy. He’s not so bad at first, but just you wait.
Anyway, Jim2 is from Scotsdale, AZ. He owns what I’m guessing is a high-interest/low-faith auto loan business. You know, the ones that charge you 40% interest on a loan for 14 years so they can suck every penny out of you and make you cry? All because you had some trouble with some other bills a few years ago and just need a stupid car to get to your stupid job? That kinda thing, I bet.
Oops. Wrong. The summary on Google says it’s an auto loan company for classic and exotic cars. So, the complete opposite end of the spectrum. Sorry! It’s financing for rich dudes who don’t want to part with their stocks and bonds but want an old Rolls.
Oh, and what’s this shit Jim2 says about his net worth being anywhere between 7.5 and 15 million dollars? That’s like me saying my new worth is somewhere between two hundred and 3 million dollars. Somewhere in there. I’m sure it’s actually a business-y way of referring to things, but in reality TV land where viewers like me are dumbasses, it doesn’t work.
Patti’s really snarky about this guy as he talks about his 14,000 sq ft house, quipping that he’d never be able to afford something that nice in LA, yadda yadda. She gets the bad vibes from this one, I think.
Jim2 also collects cars (makes sense, given his business), and thus starts the matchmakers in trying to see how alike Jim1 and Jim2 are. They both collect cars, and…oh, they both like Charlize Theron! Well, lucky Charlize! Didn’t she split from her longtime dude not recently? (Look at me pretending to still have an US Weekly subscription.) She’s available, boys!
Anyway, Patti’s all agog at the similarities, as though she has absolutely nothing to do with how this show is set up or put together. “How amazing is it that my producers chose two men with the same name and similar interests to be on the same show? Oh my goodness golly!”
Jim2 is really impressed with himself when it comes to his physique. And honestly, he’s earned that a bit. He’s definitely a butter-face, but I gotta give the body credit. Though I LOL at Destin’s “Whoa!” reaction when he says he’s in the gym five days a week. Five? That’s something to find incredible? I’m in the gym five times a week, bro!
Not Sexypanda. I’m a girl!
Jim2 is also really impressed with his own perfectionism. He seems proud to share that his family refers to his home as a museum. See, he’s a little particular about everything having its own spot. Which is fine. That’s just being a neatnik. But then he brags about how the women he dates often become neater and have “more discipline” because of dating him. Ew. The last thing I want to take away from a romantic relationship is an enhanced sense of discipline.
