Rock of Love Tour Bus Episode 8 Recap: Down to Bret’s Sexy Seven.

Band Photo: Poison (?)

In Panama City the girls dress in tiny bikinis, meet Bret at the pool, and find out they must watch children for the day. We learn that most of the girls have several kids of their own. Ashley speaks for the group when she says, “I may be a stripper on the weekends, but Monday through Friday I’m a Mom.”

Big Beverly may not win the “children challenge” with her boisterous and controlling persona, but may have lined herself for a new career. Bret tells Big John, “If nothing happens physically with Beverly and I think she could at least be my tour manager.” Needless to say, Ashley wins the stripper Mom challenge.

That night Bret decides to give the girls a break and takes them out. Big Beverly has a pre-going out cocktail made up of five parts vodka, two parts vodka. Predictably she becomes angry and a pain in the ass for most of the night; however, this is overshadowed by Mindy and Taya together (naked) in the hot tub and then in the shower (naked) after. The other girls decidedly gang up on them and dump salsa all over Mindy’s belongings. Taya goes to Bret who initially appears to listen, but after hearing the word salsa looked distracted, and didn’t seem to care.

Somewhere in the middle of the chaos Bret pulls Farrah aside and says, “The thing I like about you is that you’re hot!” No follow up, just those words. Sometimes nothing else needs to be said.

Nerves are high as the girls enter elimination (Big Beverly has clearly been drinking) and Taya is concerned with the drama around her. Surprisingly, both Taya and Big Beverly are chosen to stay on the tour, Farrah is sent packing. Maybe more did need to be said. Is it possible being hot isn’t enough for Bret?

Six girls left; here are the current odds to win it all:

Ashley 2:1 – The clear favorite right now. Ashley enjoys skimpy clothing, threesomes, children (when she’s not stripping), and having an awesome time.

Jamie 3:1 – The quiet contender. Over the next couple episodes expect to find if she’s carrying stripper and/or porn star baggage. Or more precisely: How MUCH stripper and/or porn star baggage?

Taya 5:1 – The Penthouse Pet of the year is always in the running.

Mindy 6:1 – With her accent she’s going to have to “try” much harder.

Brittanya 9:1 – Still not sure what she is capable of. We have yet to hear her speak.

Big Beverly 100:1 – Even Big John wouldn’t touch this.

I'm actually still digging "Heroes", but HBO has been running "Rome" again so I'm re-watching the best series ever made. Wish showtime would make an effort to finish "Carnivale" but I doubt it will happen. Clancy Brown is the man :)

Bleh, they're never gonna do another Carnivale season Netromancer. Can you believe that total bull that HBO pulled by saying the story was "finished?!?" It ended with absolutely no resolution whatsoever at literally the exact same point where it started!

Just love the whole idea of some divine conflict between good and evil set in the dustbowl midwest during the depression. One episode and it just clicked with me. If you havent already though, xFiruath, you should check out "Rome". Just rent 'em and watch at your leisure. I would literally sit and watch a whole season in 2 or 3 nights completely transfixed. And this from a guy who normally can't stand TV. Hell, if I didn't play video games I probably wouldn't own one.

Netro: Agreed. When it was over I cancelled HBO. Exellent series though from start to finish I don't believe there was one "bad episode" in the entire installment. I'm a HUGE world history buff. They actually stayed pretty true to form too.

Lucius Vorenus and Titus Pullo. Two of the baddest motherf***ers to ever grace the small screen :) Goriest stuff I've ever seen outside of a movie theatre. Glad they didn't shy away from the more uncomfortable subjects or try to modernize it.

My wife watches alot of the HBO and Showtime series. Only other ones I could get into were "Deadwood" and "The Tudors". I hear they're in production for a pilot of George RR Martin's "A Game of Thrones". Looks real promising. The series of books are some of the best I've ever read.

Netro: There is a new series on the History channel too that hasn't been too bad so far (they've only aired one episode). It's called Battles BC. It comes on Monday nights. Catch it if you get a chance.

Rome's pretty damn metal to be honest. I forget which season/episode it is but that one segment where the soldier breaks into the pit fight to help his friend is definitely among the most gory and intense sequences in cinema period, whether movie or television. They aren't afraid to bluntly deal with sensitive and taboo things that were going on then either.
