This is the third elimination and I find the banter between the Strippers and Jerry and Mike to be the least interesting aspect of them. It’s their show so I suppose it makes sense to have them in it, but their banter during the drawing is really annoying. And we still don’t get to see enough of the Stripper actually drawing. It’s a show about cartooning! Let us see them draw!
However, seeing them struggle over who to choose to send home was the best part of the episode. Lexxy and Tavis both brought it and Mike didn’t want to send either of them home. At one point, they have to turn the cameras off and Robert has to talk Mike down from the ledge. But since this is competition, someone’s gotta go home.
Mike visibly feels like shit about the decision.
Up until this point, I’ve been begrudgingly watching this show. And I’m not sure I’m going to last through twenty more of these fucking things. But this was the best episode of the bunch thus far. Seeing real emotions out of our hosts instead of their usual, detached snark was a nice change.
