Estella backstory flibbity.
Back out on a hot tin pool, the rest of the girls are engaged in a discussion that goes, "He's gotta be kissing some girls." Misty very quietly says something to the effect that she kissed him, and Kristi grabs her face and screams a high-pitched, fake, "Yay!" Misty recoils, "Not yay!" And Kristi Kute Cheeks instantly endears herself to me, because she gets to the bottom of Misty's "not yay" in one country second, and knows that what the patronizing bitch means is, "What I meant is, 'Yay for me, not for you.'" So Kristi rounds on Misty and is all, "So, wait, you didn't or you did?" leaving Misty to stammer and look stupid and plant the national flag of Dumbland in the ground to claim it proudly as her own.
Kelly Jo is inside the refrigerator deciding which flavor of Pepsi Vanilla to choose when a new Date Box arrives at the NoManner House. The remaining six girls -- Lindsay, Lee-Ann, Mary, Jenny, Lanah, and a late-breaking Antoinot -- "look out Hollywood, here we come!" Several gigantic feathered boas come streaming out of the box, and unless this where we learn that "be ready for some changes" and "don't assume anything" means that these chicks are all drag queens and that they're about to break into a boozy six-part rendition of "The Ladies Who Lunch," this season and I have always entirely had it with each other.
Jenny bitchtastically expresses her consternation that Antoinot is coming on the date, seeing as "there were five of us, and now there's six." I ain't no mathgician, but I gotta say, I think she's right. I mean, mathematically speaking.
Kristi Kute Cheeks has an adorable yellow flower in her chair and is in the middle of a story about being married and being sixty. I think Bob should pick her. Estella opens her mouth to tell exactly the same story, when from off-screen the dinging of a fork against a champagne glass can mean only one thing. They break off in horror, and Chris wastes no time: "This is an Elimination Date. I brought four white roses, which means, unfortunately, one of you will be going home tonight. And Bob, you have a decision to make right now. So if you will come join me." Of course they had to do this is L.A. The airlines would never have allowed Chris to take his precious fork and glass set as carry-on.
