Charlie has Orange Number 1, and he gets paired with Megan, who is Tammy's (?) daughter. Parker gets Tammy. Gail gets Kimberly, and Paulo gets Vicki, who he claims is the most "memorable" character on the show (after he watched one episode). I honestly wonder if the producers made them watch an episode the night before or something, because I can't actually believe that all eleven of these people have really watched that show. Dee gets McKenzi, Lauri's step-daughter, Glenn gets Tamra, and Nicole gets Jeana -- the very person she didn't want because of her stringy hair. Daniel gets Jeana's daughter Kara and squeals about it, Nekisa gets Lauri (whom Daniel has a total crush on), Meredith gets Vicki's daughter Briana, and finally Matthew is with Quinn. Before they start, there is one more twist -- because he won the Short Cut Challenge, Charlie gets to trade out his Housewife for another if he so chooses. He wants Kara, who he steals from a very ticked off Daniel. Charlie points out that Daniel was pissed, but who cares, because, "The bitch had immunity." He asserts he would have taken Kara from anyone, though, just in case we thought he was going soft on us. They've got two hours to cut, and Rene starts the clock.
There's a whole lot of talk about what people want, but the one memorable comment is Gail, who tells us that her client had a traumatic experience with extensions once. I... I've got nothing. TRAUMATIC EXTENSIONS, people. These are a bunch of long-haired women who want to keep their long hair and their color. No one wants any actual change. The housewives are offered champagne, which Paulo points out is just what is needed to mellow them out. I wish I had some champagne right now. The champagne doesn't seem to work, as Vicki just keeps freaking out about what is happening to her daughter's hair. Parker then talks about his lack of color experience again. Yawn. Gail is putting lowlights in her client's hair, as her client has forbidden her to cut. That is just one sucky luck of the draw, there. Vicki at one point actually runs over to see what they're doing to her daughter and to make sure they aren't losing any of her hair's length. Excuse me while I take a moment to call my mom and thank her for being absolutely nothing like this freakshow. There's a bit more freaking out, and then time is called. My prediction is that we're about to see a whole lot of women who look exactly the same as they did when they came in.
