Colicchio walks in and for once I am thrilled beyond belief to see him. As soon as he walked in, I was like, "Aw, yeah, now it is ON!" because if anyone can do the slap-down in a righteous way, it's Colicchio. Marcel looks at him warily. Apparently, the producers had to come to Marcel and ask him what happened. So even though Marcel would have been well within his rights to "tattle" on such ridiculous behavior, he didn't. Ted Ilan pulls his pathetic self half off the couch and looks blearily up at Colicchio. "Wake up," Colicchio tells him. He then tells everyone to leave while he "has a discussion" with Cliff. Colicchio softballs the whole thing by saying that he's sure Cliff didn't mean any harm and goes on, "But once you physically handled him, it crossed the line from a simple prank to something much more serious. You broke the rules and we're going to have to ask you to leave." Colicchio actually sounds sort of choked up here. Maybe he's just really uncomfortable. By the way, when Colicchio was talking, we got a cut to Cliff holding Marcel down and it has been very dramatically black-and-whited. Cliff totally boggles at Colicchio. He really can't believe he's being sent home for this. Well, you're a dumbass and deserve to leave. Colicchio goes on that the rules clearly state, "if you touch another contestant in an aggressive manner, you're out." Cliff just sits there. "And unfortunately, you know the rules," Colicchio adds lamely. Cliff comes to some sort of conclusion in his head and nods at Colicchio. "Okay?" Colicchio confirms. Cliff nods. Colicchio tells Cliff he can pack up his stuff and say goodbye to everyone. Cliff silently shakes Colicchio's hand and gets up. Cliff tells us, "To come this far and to do something as stupid as this, yeah, it's uh -- I kicked myself in the ass, now I'll pay for it, so I won't go to Hawaii." Damn straight.
