Now, the peeps will ask a question based on the secret files they read in advance about the guys. Michelle asks Markus about all the different things he studied in college, and wants to know what he actually wants to do with his life. Markus says he doesn't know. No, that's really what happens. You'd think I'd have to be lying. Markus claims it's a strength that he's still open, and by "open," he means "drifting." It's now Vincent's turn, and Scary Anthony asks him why he wants to adopt a child. Vincent says he spent time in Russia, and that Russian orphanages are sad. Sad! Audience: "Woooooo! Sad Russian orphanages! Wooooo!" Deirdre asks Kevin about his large family, and asks whether he wants to have a big family, too. Kevin says, "That's something her...she and I would have to discuss." Way to pause for the grammar, dude. He says that he would just have to talk it over with his wife. My God, could the answers to these questions be any more boring? Kevin actually makes a face, because he knows how very, very boring his answer was. Mama Michelle is back to ask Smithy (hee, "Smithy") a question. She says that she understands he grew up in a small town. Would he like to raise his family in a small town? Smithy explains that although he might be willing to brave a year or two in a crazy-ass place like, say, Denver, he would eventually want to settle in a small town. Considering that everything about Jill's peeps screams "NEW YORK CITY!," I'm not sure what Smithy was thinking, unless he was fantasizing about the time he got to wear the Goofy costume and hang out at Space Mountain.
Unsurprisingly, Smithy is history. My favorite part is that when Mom announces their decision, she calls him "Schmitty." Hee, "Schmitty." The audience boos, because they love Schmitty -- er, Smithy! They love his little elfin smile, and the way he bobs on the ends of his strings in that jaunty way. They love Smithy! He tells Jill's peeps, "I thank you nice folks for your time." Man, I think he's a robot from the same line as R.J. The peeps applaud. You can see them being like, "You know, I think he's better than that Vincent dude. He looks sketchy. I wish we had met him more than six minutes ago, since we're choosing a husband for our daughter and everything." Smithy is dismissed. Sean says that the peeps will now take the last three guys back to an "interrogation room" for a more intensive interview, and then they'll narrow it down to the final two.
