Rock of Love Tour Bus Episode 10 Recap: The tears are flowing.

In Orlando, Mindy is the first to breakdown and begin crying. She informs the remaining girls that she is afraid and doesn’t want to get hurt. Also, I believe the stress of recently reaching the age of adulthood is weighing on her.

The weekly contest is for the girls to write a song and perform for Bret. Mindy tells us that “she can’t sing,” then adds, “she literally can’t sing.” Uh, unless she has a doctor’s note showing her lack of vocal chords, I don’t think you literally can’t sing. Taya’s performance highlights that she is not only a Penthouse centerfold, but also a singer. In Bret Michaels world this makes her ambidextrous. Eventually, Mindy is forced to sing. You know how some people lose their accent when they sing? See Ozzy Osbourne. Well, this is not the case with Mindy. Mindy literally can’t sing. Bret tells the group that Taya is the winner and there is an uncomfortable silence that lasts until Bret says, “Awesome,” and then Jamie begins crying, unhappy that she is not the winner.

Taya (the winner) and Big Beverly (runner up) both win a date with Bret. In true Michaels fashion he has a special night for the girls. They get to fly to Texas and watch him perform. On the way back to the airport, Taya is getting close to Bret while Big Beverly is trying to get autographs from Michaels. Normally I would say this is not a good move, but this is the same guy whose ideal date is having you watch him perform.

Back in Orlando, as they prepare for elimination, the girls gang up on Taya and she begins crying. She quickly gets over it, understanding that not everyone can be the Penthouse Pet of the year and have a singing career to promote. Although this is not said out loud, it’s a very nice gesture on her part.

Taya and Jamie are selected first and are safe. Bret reluctantly lets Mindy stay on tour as well, rolling his eyes as he hands over her pass. Big Beverly is eliminated and cries. Let’s hope she got all of her autographs first.

Bret walks out, followed by Big John who throws Big Beverly a wink as if to say, “I’ll see you later on my bus.”

I have to say that none of these girls are "really in love" with Brett. What's going to happen next? Rock of Love Biker Party? Rock of Love 4, love bus #2? How long can Brett keep this going? Don't get me wrong--I can't stop watching it!@

wtf is this? some rather typically sh**ty reality tv show? well, i rarely watch tv, let alone this garbage. i actually find it to be a point of pride to not know anything about dumb shows, celebrities, or just pop culture in general.

Now listening to: Forever - Kreator
