We’re down to 9 men, hoping to “marry America’s Sweetheart” DeAnna. Oh goody. There will be singing, dancing, and tears – mostly from me, as I sit through it, I’m sure. We start out the morning as Robert, Jason and Fred get to move up to the Mansion from the outhouse and the announcement there will be a group date, a one on one date, and a two on one – though with that date one will be tossed immediately so they’ll have to pack before the date. The boys will have to earn the spot on the One on One date too -by writing and performing an original song for DeAnna. Poor boys!
There’s goodnatured grumbling as Jesse says he sucks at this and he wants to punch the host in the teeth. Ha! Twilly is worried that he has no game whatsoever, as Brian admits to loving putting verse on paper – he’s thrilled with the contest. Poor Sean says he’d rather dig his own grave, as the boys continue to joke around and someone mentions “refrain” and they go “…a what?!?” and I snicker. The “easy” part is over after 20 minutes or so, and now they have to perform their songs. DeAnna is the sole judge on who win. They let Fred go first to put him out of his misery. Much giggling all around – poor guy is tone deaf, but he got rhyme, and he at least tried. Graham wants to eat glass rather then this, but he hopes to just slide through the radar. Robert thinks he can sing – and he can better then the others but they did alright – there was even a rap, and a lot of spoken word that wanted to be lyrical, but well, fell short. Jesse gets points for braving and singing directly to her while holding her hand. Awww. He gets a hug for his efforts. Brian W sings his efforts called ‘a house of my pain’ which is.. not too bad. He surprised the other guys and even got a standing ovation and Twilley’s admiration. Ha!
DeAnna says it’s hard, and says Robert was good, as was Sean – but she goes with Jesse because he reached out to her – she ate up the hand holding. Turns out, after a delivery of a tux and tickets to a “private serenade” he’s now quite nervous, and it’s actually pretty cute. Bonus – he cleans up pretty nice, all told. DeAnna assured us she don’t want to change him, just make sure their lives mesh well. He’s like a giddy school boy, especially when he sees his names in lights “one night only, just for you Jesse” and they walk hand in hand through the theatre to find a table with dinner for two.
