“Don’t Threaten Me With A Good Time”: The Rock Of Love Recaps!

Thor AKa Bret Michaels

These days of course, Bret’s bandana covers the entire top of his head.

One of my very favorite guilty pleasures of last summer was watching VH1’s Rock Of Love with Bret Michaels, lead singer of the world’s-luckiest-not-that-talented bar band, Poison. Even though this show actually wrapped up months ago, TelevisionWithoutPity.Com is just now hilariously recapping season one .  I guess it gives them something fun to write about until the new episodes of Survivor start in February. Whoever’s doing the recapping is going super-heavy on the snark – which is always fun!  Here’s just a little snippet of the action from episode one:
“Bret gets to know Brandi M. and Jessica. First of all, only on this show do you have two Brandis. Brandi M. is from Buffalo and moved to Vegas, where she just started dancing. And I think we all know what kind of dancing. ..”

Bye Bye, Gravedigger James!

“James, Voted Out At The Lasat Tribal Council and the 4th Member of Our Jury”

Well, wonders really do never cease. I’m not sure how to feel about the Tribal Council results of last night’s Survivor. Am I sad that favored-to-win James was voted out because he was too effing stupid to play one of the two personal Immunity Idols in his possession? Or am I happy that someone who was too stupid to play an Immunity Idol was voted out? Read Televison Without Pity’s recap after the jump.

From Television Without Pity Dot Com

So with Alex gone, Yau Man is looking around and figuring out that if Boo and Stacy are ousted, that’s going to leave an F4 situation that will almost certainly not work out well for him, owing to the bond between Cassandra and “Dreamz,” in particular. This all becomes much more significant when we get to the reward challenge, where Yau Man actually manages to win a multi-stage contest for a truck. Probably not all that excited about driving a big truck in the first place, Yau Man offers “Dreamz” the following deal: at F4, if “Dreamz” and Yau Man are still there and “Dreamz” wins immunity, “Dreamz” gives the immunity necklace to Yau Man. “Dreamz” immediately agrees, and Yau Man hands over the keys and sends “Dreamz” on a reward trip with Stacy and Boo, where they deliver a box of school supplies. While they’re there, Yau Man is on Exile Island, where he sent himself. No, seriously. He picks up another clue to the re-hidden idol, which essentially gives away its location. Back at camp, he shares this with Earl, who tracks down the idol and takes possession of it. So now Yau Man has one, and Earl has one. The immunity challenge goes to Boo, which removes the possibility of booting him. “Dreamz,” realizing that he really, really shouldn’t have taken a deal that may either require him to (1) allow himself to be booted or (2) look like a snake or (3) possibly return his truck, gets Cassandra and Stacy to agree that they’ll vote off Yau Man — a plan into which Boo is apparently also recruited…

As tribal council approaches, Stacy pretends that she knows she’s going home, while Yau Man gets an increasingly bad feeling. Earl, however, thinks they’re fine, and seems to think Yau Man doesn’t need to use his idol. Yau Man thinks differently. After Stacy makes a weird comment suggesting that there’s something tricky going down with the vote, Yau Man plays his immunity idol, saving himself from the boot and sending Stacy home.

Sunday: the Finale. Whee!
