Time for the mixer! But it’s not just any mixer, it’s a “Ring the Bell” mixer. Basically, the millionaires will get a chance to talk to everyone, and then Patti will ring a bell. Each millionaire will eliminate one person from the batch, but they have to state out loud WHY the person is being eliminated, and it can’t be about looks only. This helps both millionaires be a little smarter in who they choose, instead of just going with raw chemistry.
The first things I notice are that A) Matt shaved off his beard thing and is instead pale where the beard used to be. It distracts me for the rest of the mixer, and B) Aimee looks much better with some makeup, but that demeanor and that voice are just so off-putting (to me).
Patti’s got them standing in two circles, one for Matt and one for Aimee. Matt’s taking his time going around the circle, talking genuinely to each woman. Aimee just asks the same question over and over again of her dudes. “Do you like to dance?…do you like to dance?…do you like to dance?” What is this fucking weird obsession about dancing??! It’s her THING and it’s WEIRD. Don’t worry, she does it again, this time asking if each guy is willing to relocate. Weirdo.
“Are you willing to have aggressive highlights?…are YOU willing to have aggressive highlights?” (Pretend there’s more than one woman in that random photo I chose to put here)
First bell rings! Aimee decides to eliminate Ken, because he has gray hair. Patti does not accept this answer and forces her to try again…and if she can’t come up with some other reason, Ken will be one of the mini-dates! And…Ken is a mini-date! Ha! (My husband says, “he should come into the mini-date and say, ‘that’s okay, I thought your hair was pretty bad too.’” Ha!)
Matt eliminates Jaclyn, the lawyer-sister. She’s like, “That’s fine, buh-bye!”
Aimee loosens up a bit to ask some open-ended questions of her guys. Some of them look BORED. Matt asks the tattooed girl about her tats and then asks her if she likes R&B. “Keith Sweat?” “Kee-sway?!” She doesn’t understand his accent. Ha!! Keith Sweat, an R&B act from the year you were born, remember that guy? She doesn’t.
“suckitin suckitin suckitin if you’re Rin Tin Tin or Anne Boleyn”
Gross, when Aimee tells the guys more about her DANCING, which is, as we know, freestyle, but she calls it, UGH, “the stripper strut.” I really wish we could see some of this mythical dancing. I bet she looks like Elaine Benis. The guys look mildly intrigued. Mildly.
