And now Chris is whining about being called immature, and Doug does his disappointed-dad routine, and Ryan stepping in to tell Chris that he needs to be a little more confident, which is tough when Ryan is soaking up all the confidence in the room. Chris says something about being offended. "You were offended by a lot of things," says Ryan, who is even an ally for Kalon's douchey entrance, since this is, after all, a competition.
Kalon acknowledges his "Ricki is baggage" comment, and says after a few weeks you're feeling frustrated and not really yourself. And some guys whose names I can't remember and Stevie, who lists his occupation as "Party MC," let's not forget, give him the gears, and now Travis, who made Emily sing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" to an ostrich egg, is high-fiving someone else. And Kalon says he is friends with Tony and Chris, and Tony is apparently someone who was on this show at one point, and he doesn't appear super-thrilled to be outed as a Friend Of Kalon.
And now Kalon is called forward to the "hot seat" but it's OK because Harrison calls him "man" which means Harrison's looking out for him. We watch a montage of Kalon's greatest hits. The Party MC complains that Kalon sounds like he's "writing sonnets" whenever he speaks. And John says he doesn't see Kalon missing a facial to pick Ricki up from soccer practice. In fairness to his many, many, many, many detractors, there are plenty of examples of Kalon saying assholish things.
Harrison asks Kalon why he came on the show. It turns out that when the men signed up, they didn't know it was Emily, but by the time things got underway, they knew who she was and knew she has a daughter. Kalon said by that point he was committed, and it would have said less about his character if he'd pulled out just because Emily has a kid, plus at the time he didn't know it was as big an issue for him as it was.
And while he's talking about his sense of humor, which I guess accounts for the dingbat things he said, this guy Joe can't take it anymore and interrupts to yell that Kalon was here for the glitz and the glamour. Tony also says he thought Kalon was there more for the cameras than for Emily. Kalon wins himself no friends when he says he doesn't think his "I love to hear you talk, but not until I'm finished" comment was THAT bad, and says the baggage thing is essentially him not sugarcoating things. Doug and Sean give him shit for it, Sean especially upping his getting-laid-by-audience-member probability another twenty-five percent.
