Aw. But we’ve barely said hello! :(
The first thing we loved about this week’s show turned that frown upside down:
- Bobby’s return.
…and packing his bags…
…and bidding adieu…
…Bobby Brown left boot camp to play some concert in Europe that posed a conflict to the CFC shooting schedule. It was all sadness and infuriation (the latter is especially so in reference to Jay, who hasn’t stopped handing Bobby his un-worked-out ass to him), but then magic happened:
…Bobby came running back and promptly botched his team’s lead in the challenge, losing this week’s Fit Factor points for them and earning the title of dead weight.
At this point he must have wondered if he should have even bothered coming back. Don’t get me wrong: I’m glad he did (anytime Bobby Brown is on my TV, it’s a good thing), but the triumph of his return took a major nosedive. I mean, like Bobby himself while attempting to manage the hay-bail hurdles, it barely even got off the ground.
- Tanisha’s team’s reaction to that:
Of course, far be it from anyone to react to something more dramatically than Tanisha who literally collapsed after the parachute pull…
She remained unresponsive for a good minute after falling to the ground, worrying…no one. That’ll teach them to force her to force herself against hurricane-level winds!
The agility section of this week’s challenge found Shar and Kaycee attempting to collect flags in a field while Harvey pelted them with tennis balls via a laucher. While this fun to watch…
…it was obviously more fun to do…
Oh, and note above how Kevin has about half of his head in his jacket, clearly because he didn’t want to see Shar get pelted. That’s sweet. By the end of the challenge…
…Kevin had lost his head entirely. On one hand, that poses many challenges. On the other, this week’s weigh-in was destined to be the best ever.
- Sebastian’s new ‘do.
Look who got a makeover! I’m not sure if he got both a weave and a treatment (as prescribed by Tanisha), but it was at least the latter. Upgrade y/y?
- Nicole’s new ‘do.
All she needs is the beer cans and she is her own Lady Gaga video.
Even though Sebastian was all…
…at the prospect. It ended up being all kinds of awesome:
…right back atcha, Seb!
- Jay’s intimate encounters…
Not only did he practically slick the floor down drooling over Joshua Allen…
…he then found himself in very close contact with Sergio “The Latin Snake” Mora.
Sergio kept telling Jay to “come closer” before they boxed much to Jay’s discomfort/obvious delight. And really, since Jay spent so much time closeted, it’s nice to see him at absolute terms with his sexuality. His match was punctuated by a punch on the ass from Sergio…
It’s not a snake but it’ll do. This counts as action, right?
- Foxy boxing.
This is technique (and, given Kevin’s close proximity, possible revenge-fantasizing).
- The results.
Kevin’s goal was 3 lbs.; that’s exactly what he lost.
Tanisha’s goal was 4 lbs.; she lost 1.
Shar’s goal was 3 lbs.; that’s what she lost.
Sebastian’s goal was 4 lbs.; he lost 1.
Bobby’s goal was 4 lbs.; he lost 0.
Kaycee’s goal was 3 lbs.; she lost 4.
Nicole’s goal was 3 lbs.; she (yikes!) gained 3.
And, Jay’s goal was 4 lbs.; he lost 7.
This put him in first place…
…with Kevin immediately behind him.
The team scores, too, are extremely tight:
…which is kind of the best thing about the often disappointing results of this season. The disappointing is neck-and-neck!
I want also to point out the best, quote of the episode. This one’s just ahead of Shar’s “I worked out like a crackhead” — it edges that one out because of its eroticism. Regarding the wake-up calls that Bobby set up with Harvey and then refused to take, Harvey said, “Are you dagonne gonna f*** me in the ass and not even give me a reach around or something?”
For shame, Bobby. For shame. Next time you’re in that situation think to yourself, what would Sergio do?
