Before Frank calls the girls to the living room, Cathy, Melissa and Melody discuss Dana and her anger problem.
There, Frank explains today’s challenge tasks the girls to write a screenplay titled “Life After the Basement” which will chronicle their lives 10 years into the future (10 years? Given the track record for the most recent shows, we can’t get folks to stay together for 10 days after filming ends).
The girls have two hours to write their plays and they will be judged on their writing, performance and overall vision for their plays.
Cathy does Frank
While the girls write, Cathy contemplates making her play into a porn and wonders if Gary and Susan will be watching the performances (They’ve been at every challenge except one. I would think they would be at this one too since it’s in the house).
Now it’s time for the presentations and Cathy is first.
(For this challenge I’ll just write the name of the person, the title, a brief synopsis and maybe a comment).
Cathy; “ Cathy Does Frank” – It’s basically cheesy porn dialogue with heckling from Frank’s parents (If this shit wasn’t embarrassingly bad I might be a little annoyed by all the c*ckblocking going on…but I’m not).
Melissa; “Leave it to Crusher” -A dinner scene with bad ass kids and lots of yelling. (If this is Melissa’s idea of a good life then I don’t want to know what a bad day for her would be like).
Felicia; “Felicia’s Factual Play about Romantic Issues” – A boring play about Felicia telling Frank how she manages their money. (Who the fuck came up with these shit ass titles?)
Kerry; “Kerrysomething” -A play that reads like one of those lame ass 90’s WB dramas.
Dana; “Dana With the Wind” – A play about Dana complimenting Frank on his greatness. (Really, that’s all it is.)
Melody; “Melodie De L’ Amour” – A classier porn dialogue (Only because “fuck on my face” wasn’t a part of this play)
The performances are over and Frank announces that Kerry is the winner of the challenge. While Kerry gets to go on a date, the rest of the girls will get to spend another day with Frank’s parents.
Frank and Kerry leave for their date (WTF? Where did the Escalade come from?)
At dinner, Gary talks more than he has ever talked the whole show. Susan asks Melissa about her play and she explains it was meant to be comical. She also says she wants Frank to live in Minnesota with her.
Susan asks Melody about her play and after she explains herself, Dana asks Melody about her age and if she has considered adopting a child instead of giving birth to one (You know women can have kids into their 40’s and 50’s now).
Melody answers that she thinks waiting to have a child is best and that having an anger problem is a bad thing. Dana feels offended but she stays silent the remainder of dinner.
On the date, Frank takes Kerry to a sidewalk cafe. He asks Kerry about competing with her friend Cathy, so Kerry takes this opportunity to say Cathy is really a sexual person.
Frank then asks Kerry’s opinion of the other girls. She says Dana has a bad temper and has threatened to hit Melody.
Back at the house, Melissa tells Dana that Melody is trying to turn the other girls against her. Minutes later she goes to later to tell Melody about Dana’s anger (Bitch, sit down. You already have a reputation for spreading lies.)
Later Dana calls her mom again to vent about Melody. Melody tries to go use the phone and Dana calls her a ‘fake bitch’ and an ‘old lady’ so Melody goes outside to tell Felicia and Cathy what she said.
Back home, Frank wants to talk to Melissa. She tells Frank that her play was meant to be comical and that their life wouldn’t be like the play. After that chat, Frank goes to talk to Melody and she tells him about Dana and her anger (Does anyone else notice how shitty the editing is this episode; Frank talking to Melissa and it’s night but when he talks to Melody the sun is still out).
Frank begins to have concerns about Dana.
At Elimination, Melissa feels confident about staying while Melody wants Dana to go home. Frank begins elimination by polling the girls who they want to go home.
Dana says Melody, but all the other girls, except Melissa, say Dana. Melissa replies that she wants Felicia to go home (Ugh, so fake. She should go home for that).
Dana is surprised that the other girls want her to go home.
Frank gives Kerry the first key. Felicia, Cathy and Melody get keys leaving Melissa and Dana in the Bottom 2.
Frank tells Melissa that her story was scary while Frank tells Dana that he likes her and doesn’t care what the other girls think for now. He gives her the last key and eliminates Melissa.
Outside, Melissa is sad about getting eliminated and says the other girls left would be good for Frank (Goodness she’s so fucking fake).
At the toast, Dana refuses to take a glass for Melody but Frank seems to ignore it and now we are left with our Final 5.
