It was fun to see four female celebrities choosing dates this week. Actress Carmen Electra, singer Sophie Monk, Playboy model, Hope Dworaczyk and beauty pageant contestant, Rima Fakih all got to pick who to go out with on a date. Although I think that calling all of these ladies "celebrities" may be stretching it, they were all entertaining on this episode of The Choice.
Send in the Clowns
More than a few of the guys seem bragadocious as they speak about themselves in the 30 seconds of time allowed. One guy even plays a ukelele, while another mentions that growing up on a yacht taught him family values. What? Well, not that it couldn't, but he just says only that like it was 'nuff said' on the subject. In the mix though were a few dreamy looking guys who seemed interesting and could think on their feet.
You Gotta Have Hope
Brant, which I guess is a mix of Brad and Brent?, is a Ricky Martin lookalike with a little rounder of a face. He ends up in Hope's dating pool. I love it when Hope is the only one to spin around after Marco says he's "half black, half Indian and 100% Blindian." So, this is her second of three allowed matches.
Having to pick between the two remaining men, Hope chooses Hermos only because her first option is Joe who works at Victoria's Secret and she doesn't want someone who knows more about lingerie than she does. Yeah, that's a good one.
Hope gets rid of Hermos first after the speed dating round. Hope's question is about how the two remaining guys would propose to her. Brant just says it would be sweet, while Marco mentions it would be by the water and meaningful. The second answer really appeals to me, but Hope chooses Brant to be her date.
Nicholas loves baking and calls himself a "martial artist." He also looks like Tom Cruise and he picks Carmen out of some of the others who turn around. Carmen completes her dating pool with Christopher and RJ.
Carmen eliminates RJ first after the speed dating questions. Her final question is what animal each guy would be. Christopher goes for the shark, which Carmen did mention in an earlier discussion they had, while Nicholas' answer is a dolphin. Carmen chooses Christopher for her date.
Sophie spins around for Shane who just plays a ukelele. She has some competition as Carmen also turns her chair around. But, Shane goes for Sophie. Sophie spins around for David, who served in Iraq, and wins out over Rima. Sophie is the only one to turn around for John, who is the guy who said he grew up on a yacht and now her dating pool is full.
John is gone after the first round of speed questions. Sophie's final question is really a request for the guys to do their best celebrity impression. David, an engineer, does something from Toy Story. Shane does Elvis, complete with the lip snarl, and he does look like the King. Sophie goes for Shane and really, with his young Elvis looks and her tall, blonde model beauty, they are a stunning couple.
Karim is Egyptian, but is also from Queens like Rima, so he picks her over Carmen. Gabriel fills the second spot in Rima's dating pool. Andrew, a blonde, gets some whispering from a few of the ladies who shall remain nameless, that they like dark men, but Rima ends up having him as her third match anyway.
Rima still keeps Andrew after the speed questioning round and chooses Gabriel to leave. Rima wants to know what the guys' talents would be in a beauty pageant. Karim says his walk and he does a model walk with his jacket slung over one shoulder. It's pretty hot.
Andrew says his talent is "doing a lot of tricks with his tongue." Ah, er, well ... Rima goes to the stage and walks around both men and decides on Andrew, whose blondeness no longer seems to be an issue - wonder why? Andrew picks Rima up in his arms and carries her over to her spinning chair. It's a very 'Me, Andrew, You, Rima' ending.
