The first event is the stupid axe toss, which the men did in the first episode. Rebekah goes first, and lands an axe in an outer ring. Up next is Karen, who unsurprisingly can't even get the axe all the way to the target. Cecile -- who might have done better if New Tim's picture were pinned to the bull's-eye -- plants the axe in the outer ring. Andrea manages to catch an inner ring. In an interview, Andrea tells us she managed to "get lucky" and at least "hit the target." Gee, thanks for that revealing insight! Sissie's up next, and some dramatic, stirring music starts playing. Her axe appears to be closer than Andrea's, and she starts cheering, but the measurement reveals that Andrea is closer by an eighth of an inch, which I'm sure prompted Sissie to tell the other bachelorettes she didn't want to win because she loves Brent so very, very much. The $1,000 added to Andrea's dowry brings it up to $10,000.
I wonder if, when the producers decided to make the women repeat the already-annoying events, they realized the events would become more irritating because of the addition of "you go, girlfriend!" being yelled many times.
Next up, the skeet-shooting. Yes, it was someone's brilliant idea to make five women who have clearly never fired a rifle in their lives compete in a skeet-shooting competition. As lame as it sounds on paper, watching it was even worse, and by "even worse" I mean "even way more worse than you can ever imagine it being." Out of thirty shots, only three targets were hit. Andrea, Karen, and Rebekah came up with goose eggs, Sissie hit one target, and Cecile hit two (which is, incidentally, more targets hit by hunter/state trooper Doug). It's okay, though, because Sissie didn't want to shoot more targets because she loves Brent so very, very much. After winning, Cecile starts flexing her muscles and Will starts doing an annoying "raise the roof" routine. In an interview, Will makes this ridiculous statement: "I know she was a big-time gamer, so I knew she'd be ready for it," as though Cecile's victory wasn't completely due to luck. Her dowry's up to $16,000.
Then we get a stupid screen with giant letters announcing the Current Score, which is Andrea: 1 and Cecile: 1, and I don't really think that was necessary. We're talking three events and two of them are done. Was there anybody saying, "How many events has Cecile won? Seven?"
