And now it's time to talk about Kacey. Chelsey tells us that Kacey is very confusing to all of the other girls. She kind of keeps to herself, which is fine if that's how you are. In fact, the girls would like Kacey to keep to herself MORE. They are foiled when she bursts into one of the bedrooms and announces her idea to have a barbeque and invite the male models from the last shoot. If you'll recall, last week Kacey could not stop sniffing the jock of her companion male model, Shaw, and went so far as to get his number. Liz reminds Kacey that she has a boyfriend back at home, and the other girls look really skeptical. But Kacey claims that they're just chilling and having a barbeque. Tyra would approve of the ribs, but certainly not the shenanigans.
Despite the fact that nobody is into it, Kacey calls Shaw. Everyone stands around the phone when she calls, like they're in sixth grade. Maybe someone should secretly be on three way calling, and then Kacey can ask Shaw if he likes that person! Liz tells us that Kacey was talking in her sexy, sassy 1-800-COCO voice, which they all find pretty crunk. Everyone is pretty judge-y about the whole boyfriend factor. Although if every girl on this show had great loyalty and discretion, we'd have been deprived of, "You had SEX?!?" So, all we can do is watch and cross our fingers that something really, life-shatteringly horribly happens. Lexie reminds us that Kacey totally called her out in front of the other girls at casting week, and that she doesn't trust Kacey as far as Kacey can see without her glasses. Which isn't far, despite what that awkwardly constructed sentence might make you think.
Esther fires up the grill, and Liz makes a fruit salad, and Shaw and a couple of his friends show up. Liz says, "When the guys came, it was mad awkward." We see the guys sitting around not talking to the girls, and the girls sitting around not talking to the guy. Kayla interviews, "I felt like middle school dance all over again." That's middle school dance for a lesbian! Really bad. Jane tells us that it felt like a mixer at someone's house, with mom upstairs. All of these examples point to one thing: the barbeque was really bad. No one is having life-ruining sex, much to our chagrin. Oh but wait! Kayla notes that Kacey and her partner seemed to "interact" very well together. To wit, they sit and stare into each others' eyes. Or maybe he's just trying to figure out what the fuck is up with those bags. As Kacey tells Shaw that he's cute, Kendal confessionalizes that a person can flirt, but Kacey was flirting too damn hard. That's the kind of flirting that might, in fact, lead to Kendal's worst nightmare -- sticky semen hand. Kayla dutifully tries to talk to one of the male models, who seems like a bit of a dullard. Lexie tells us that she wishes the guys were more fun. That might go both ways, actually. At 9:45 PM the guys leave the house, ostensibly so they can get home before curfew. Wild times in Cycle 15! Now let's all have some Sleepytime tea and eat umeboshi!
