Natasha walks back from the beach with the roses and stops by Nicole's lounge chair. She holds out the roses for Nicole to smell. She's all like, Can you smell the Dan? Can you? Nicole, the dumbass, leans up to sniff them. You know that some sick part of her loves it. Sniff the humiliation, Nicole, sniff it! In an interview she complains about how Natasha came up after the fact "and is, like, asking me how I feel about her going on a Hall Pass with Dan, with her roses in my face." Dude, Natasha's had her roses in everyone's face from the moment SHE PUT THOSE SHORTS ON.
Jeff and Maurice are hunting around in one of the bedrooms. "There he goes," says Jeff, pointing to the corner. "Wait, he's right by my feet!" says Maurice. "He's under this bed," says Jeff. "There he goes!" Maurice jumps over to the closet and looks inside. "Come here, buddy," says Jeff. "Whoa, there he goes!" Finally the camera catches a little brown mouse running down the hallway. JS: "Ohhh! I thought they were looking for Tim Gittings." Amy and Chris and Nicole come in to see what's happening. "HE'S IN THE SHOE!" yells Maurice, throwing a shoe out of the closet. He's kidding. Nicole screams and then gets upset. She thought that mouse was serious about her. She's dumb.
"Somebody's coming!" Dan yells. Everyone starts hurrying out of the house to see who it is. The person hasn't even made over the lawn yet, and everyone seems to know it's the newest classmate. Do they all have some weird Huskie radar? "It's a girl," says Natasha, with her alpha female sense of detection.
The new girl is Maya Pingle, the Homecoming Queen. "In high school, I was Homecoming Queen," she says in voice-over. They show a photo of her wearing her white graduation dress and carrying a dozen red roses.
KK: Hey, that photo's not from Homecoming.
Wendola: We all had to wear those stupid white dresses and carry roses.
LT: Wow! So I was Homecoming Queen, too?
JS: Oh my God! So was I!
Wendola: Holy shit! Me, too!
Anyway, back to Maya. "In high school, I was Homecoming Queen," she says. "I was Student Council president. I was part of yearbook and tons of activities." There are photos of her on the yearbook staff; riding horseback; ballet dancing; Spirit Club; fencing; playing harpsichord; carving ice sculptures; learning Esperanto; going to space camp; raising llamas. "I wouldn't say that I was necessarily part of the popular clique, but a lot of them were good friends of mine," she says. Uh, yeah, what she said. From what little I remember of her, at least. She doesn't look that different, except she sort of has J.Lo hair now. As she approaches the house, she squeals, "I see Miss Natasha!" Natasha runs out and hugs her. In an interview, Maya says that she's currently in a relationship but that she's definitely "keeping an open mind." Which sounds like she's going to a New Age seminar instead of on a reality show, but whatever.
