Sixteen finalists were named and quite thrilled with themselves until they learned they were going to have to walk down a runway that started at the top of a high building. It was a "perilous vertical runway," according to Tyra, and while Renee rocked it, sexy ice cream man Mike walked like he had dropped a load in his pants. A really sticky load. At home, Cory consoled Mike in top flirty moment #8. While Mike talks about how everyone keeps telling him to look less tense, Cory wiggles his shoulders and says, "Just get more relaxed," in the manner of one Miss Blanche Devereaux. Cory interviews that Mike is fierce, flawless, fabulous…and working on it. He tells Mike that he's good at helping people relax, bites his lip, and says there's only one way to go…up. Then Chris H. says, "Yo, did you decide if you're going bottom or top? …I mean beds." At least he didn't punch them in the nuts? And how did that not make it as one of the top ten flirty moments?
Then the models posed for a "timely" "marriage diversity" shoot. While Bianca and Chris S. struggled, Marvin felt super-great about being the one dude in a polygamy-inspired shot. He wondered if he was purposely chosen to be surrounded by lovely ladies. And this takes us to flirty moment #7, which was Marvin talking about his one condom that was about to expire. He REALLY wanted Bianca to partake in that condom before it went bad, and invited her to come to the Tyra Suite with him for a mere five minutes. Everyone called him Starvin' Marvin, though when Phil offered to come and join him for five minutes Marvin claimed not to be starving at all.
And while Marvin was distracted by Phil's advances, ice cream man Mike found a way to mack on Bianca in flirty moment #6. And hey -- this is a legit scandal! In the confessional, a wasted Mike -- still in full guyliner -- charms Bianca by telling her that he'll make her coffee, lunch, and dinner, as well as eggs before she goes to sleep. That's totally weird, but she doesn't care as she squeals while cheating toward the camera. Way to be in the moment! And then they kiss. So deep was their passionate connection, says Tyra, that the star-crossed young lovers felt compelled to take it all the way to…the bedroom. We see them together in Mike's bed, and the next morning Cory wasted no time in telling everyone else what went down. This is why it's bad form to hook up with somebody in a bunk bed situation. In telling the tale, Cory also highlighted the fact that Bianca is youngest in the house and Mike is the oldest. She claimed that nothing happened, but Cory countered that he heard lip smacking. Don was just offended on Marvin's behalf, though Marvin wasn't above taking some sloppy seconds. And then, perhaps uncoincidentally, Bianca was sent home along with Chris S. in a "shocking" double elimination.
