Cohen giddily presents them with "Bronnie" t-shirts, saying they're even on sale now on the Bravo website. Ugh. Just blow them already, Bravo. Jeez. All that and nothing about Ben's snow trip meltdown and all his hate speech? That shit was so unacceptable and no one is going to say anything? And no one wants to point out that what offended Ronnie most about all of that was Ben calling him a girl? I am the last person to be oversensitive about things like that, but honestly, it was SO awful, and Ben didn't even half-apologize for it or seem to recognize the stupidity of what he said. And are we supposed to give him a medal for "being friends with a gay guy?" I am so over anything even having to do with either one of these boys.
A montage of their more interesting assignments is shown, and I am just about to get bored when we see Jay's little moment hiding his light under a bushel, again. That was really my favorite thing that happened on the show. Poor Jay. He seems like a really nice guy. Too bad they wasted his time flying him up and down the country and then... didn't let him say a word in this entire hour.
Cohen has another titillating question from a "viewer." You know the dude was backstage just making these up before he came out on stage. Someone wants to know if either Perry or Casey are bisexual. "What is with these people?" Perry asks, as Casey laughs and says no, the two of them are straight-up homosexual. (Sorry, Joe, I am pretty sure he's joking.) Man, Casey is beautiful. I think this contest should be down to him, Holly, Perry and Shannon. That would be a really tough vote, but at least a pretty good model would be awarded the prize -- even if Casey is still awkward, he's got so much potential. Cohen asks him breathlessly about his fear of snakes. These questions sound like they're off the "Mystery Date" board game. Casey says yes, he was very scared of Lemon, and is scared anew when Niki strolls up behind him on the catwalk and has Lemon placed on his shoulders again. He is a good sport about it, as usual. What is wrong with these people? Yes, we want to make sure you were really afraid of this thing... before we bring it back out and wrap it around your neck.
Back from commercials, Tyson has joined Niki in front of all the models. His face is currently featuring a goatee and mustache combo which, if this can ever be said about Tyson, is not hot. Cohen asks him who he thinks has improved the most, and of course he says "my boy, Ben." Why is everybody your boy? "What about your boy, Perry?" Cohen rightly asks. Tyson says Perry's just a natural, and that he barely even needed help to be great. Niki thinks Ronnie has evolved the most. I think Ronnie plays to Niki's motherly instinct -- she cannot stop lavishing him with praise. She says Ronnie has come so far since the casting special, which I must agree is true, though it isn't hard to bounce back from hideous orange tan and embarrassing fake tattoo sleeves.
