So the kids walk backstage and into a conference room with tables and coffee and shit. Nice dungeon, dick. Msaada says that she looks like her dad, and Kathryn and Holly talk about crying every time they see their moms, they love them so much. Theo says his mom knows nothing about him. And onstage, as MayorSteve says to the parents that they surely must know everything about their kids, they cut to a slo-mo shot of Theo. Okay. We Get It. Theo and his mom are estranged. Move on. But naturally they don't, as Floaty Theo says that amongst all the cast with their close parental relationships, he feels like "the ugly duckling." Two duck quotes within two minutes of television. Theo's strange ways confuse and frighten me. Crazy multi-shots as Msaada says, "I get to see my Daddy!" And scene. Incidentally, I do think it's pretty mean of B/M to play up the Theo estrangement thing. Not all parents and kids are the best of friends. In fact, the other five are the minority. Way to make most adolescents going through the normal stuff of growing-up feel bad and alone. Fuck you, B/M. Yes, I said Fuck You.
Fake shots of cheering crowd. Kids back onstage with the parents. The first question the parents were asked regarding their kids (in scenes left on the editing room hard drive) is, "What song title best describes your personality? Born to Be Wild. I Want to Be Sedated. Or Goody Two-Shoes." Msaada and father agree on Goody Two Shoes. Kathryn and mother on Wild Thing. When Laterrian guesses Wild Thing and his mother busts out with Goody Two-Shoes, he runs around the stage in mock embarrassment/surprise, and the B/M editors test our television size (and our patience) with mad multi-shots. Laterrian says something about not wanting to scare his mom with the real him. Not each team is shown (presumably because the results didn't fit with the way B/M were trying to craft the story lines) and we go to the next question.
