Back on the boat, it is time for the Paymaster's fifteen minutes. Hoopz asks Whiteboy to talk to her. Whiteboy tries to convince her that Real's proposal was just a scheme to get her off her game. He also thinks that Real is threatened by him because he and Hoopz are friends. I don't know if Whiteboy reads a lot of self-help or pop psychology books, but I know that he listens to a lot of Neil Diamond. He is a softy inside a camouflage camisole. He has beautiful words of wisdom to impart on the world. He shares, he cares, he apologizes to Hoopz for hurting her. Meanwhile, Real prepares a little surprise for Hoopz back at the Casa. Hoopz once told him that she wanted to get married in Italy, so he is recreating Italy in their own backyard. He has a table, two chairs, and a little paper sign that he has written in Sharpie that says, "Italy." If he was seven it would be adorable. He's not seven, so it's retarded. When Hoopz gets back from the Power Outing he tells her to shower and change (rude much?) because he is going to take her somewhere special. Hasn't he had enough awkward encounters for the week? I can't even watch this. Pimptastic Real takes Hoopz by the arm and leads her out to "Italy." She bursts out laughing at the little set up. He pulls out her chair and calls her "Big Butt." Charmante! Real serves up a little drama over his pasta dinner. He disses Megan. He trashes Pumkin. He throws Whiteboy under the taco truck. After ten minutes of bad-mouthing Whiteboy, Hoopz starts to get a clue that Real has serious intentions towards her. She harks back to some malarkey that Whiteboy was spouting about Real's feelings for her clouding his judgment. I wish Hoopz would just man up and kick out Whiteboy because he is a stronger competitor than Megan or Pumkin. It has to be done at some point. Why not now?
Hoopz and Megan share some patio time. Megan wants to find out whether or not Hoopz is going to kick her off tomorrow. Megan dons her infuriating shit-eating grin and doesn't move her lips at all while asking if she is safe. Hoopz doesn't really answer. In the confessional, Hoopz rolls her eyes at Megan thinking that her offer to save her was perennial. It wasn't. Megan presents her case for getting rid of Pumkin and Hoopz barely listens. In the communal closet, Whiteboy tries to talk to Hoopz before elimination, but their relationship is scarred. She doesn't have anything to say to him.
