And here we have Stephen. Stephen, the token...what? Asshole? Freak? Man who always wears a suit and loud tie at the weirdest times? Not sure what he is other than Hated By Me, but he's also a sommelier at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and he proves this by sabreing the top off a bottle of Dom Give Me a Fucking Break in his audition tape. Yeah, I have about five friends who can do that same thing, so pour me a big glass of Moet et Unimpressed. He curls his upper lip condescendingly as he talks to his interviewer about how he's "definitely a leader" and how he "sets an example that others should follow." Just wait, Stephen, just wait.
Next is the token black chick, Lisa. Not much to say about her except that she's self-taught, and her chyron says she's a cooking teacher. I think she also emerges as the token Mom o' Many Kids.
DonKen makes some crack about how the new house's kitchen is a "housewife's kitchen," whatever that means, and tells the token older lady that she should feel right at home there. "Fuck you, you are an ass!" the token foul-mouthed older lady laughs back. Cynthia used to own a restaurant but now she caters and party-plans and swears. She also has celeb-cred because she has done parties for Nicky Hilton, Jay-Z, "and of course BeyoncÃ©, who is a doll." Why "of course"? Is it that all party planners have to do BeyoncÃ© to earn their (chicken) wings? Is she like the cheerleader that all the football players have to sleep with before they can officially be on the team?
The crew tramps up to the roof deck and looks out at a misty San Francisco neighborhood. Laurel Heights? Presidio? Sutro Heights? Dave introduces himself. I think he's the token gay dude, but I'm not entirely certain. He used to work in the tech world, but now he's a professional chef who runs a restaurant in Manhattan Beach. He's also an amateur crier. (SPOILER!) ["'Amateur'?" -- Sars]
Miguel and Candice check out the bedrooms and closets. Well, Candice checks out the closets, and Miguel checks out Candice in the bedrooms. Miguel teases the model that she brought the world in her suitcase. She giggles that she totally did. And now, finally, the token bitch. Tiffani glares at Candice and Miguel and rips open her huge black duffel. She interviews that she's all about the competition and the money: "I'm not here to make friends." (Don't worry, you won't.) "If I meet some cool people along the process, great." (You will, but they'll hate you.) "But I'm here to win this competition and that's it." (...)
