Daisy of Love returned Sunday after a two-week hiatus (the longest two weeks of my life!) with a killer episode. Things are getting close, with four guys left and only two to be taken to the finale.
The show starts predictably enough, with Daisy and London whispering sweet nothings into each other’s ears. Sinister decides to swoop in by climbing a fence and giving Daisy a flower, losing a ring in the process. In return, Daisy barely notices him, but takes the flower and starts using it as a prop to flirt with London before making out with him. Sinister gets crazy pissed and starts smashing things around the house, all culminating in a ruined camera lens and a broken guitar at the bottom of the pool. Eek!
The next morning, Daisy’s got a surprise for the fellas. Enter the classic dating show return-of-the-exes scenario, in which each contestants’ ex-girlfriend returns to tell Daisy about her former flame. Daisy sits down to lunch with the girls before the boys can get to ‘em. Here’s what each gal had to say about each guy:
12 Pack / Dave’s ex-girlfriend Cathy: Snoozer! Nothing but nice! She’s known him since middle school and had only good things to say.
Flex’s ex-girlfriend Kia: They dated two years ago, but tried to reconnect about four months ago, at which point Flex ignored her calls. He broke her heart!
London’s friend Natasha: Here’s a shocker - London was dating a girl back home recently… and he’s a sex addict.
Sinister’s ex-girlfriend Ashley: They ended on good terms, but they did get in one altercation along the way, which involved him smacking her across the face. Eek squared!
Next, Daisy decides to take each girl and her corresponding gent in to meet with a psychic.
The analysis, from a lovely psychic named Laurie:
12 Pack / Dave: He was a hero in a past life. He’s a good guy, and they have a good connection - and if anyone is to hurt someone in the relationship, it’d be Daisy. Good karma all around.
Flex: There’s still a pretty strong bond between him and his ex. That’s about it.
London: The chemistry is super strong. London is a man who loves women and appreciates that they exist. However, if he were to commit to being with Daisy, he would not cheat on her. “London is a homeless sex addict who my psychic thinks is perfect for me. Go figure!” says Daisy.
Sinister: Of all the guys, the connection with him is the weakest. He’s also a bad boy (he wishes!), but he wouldn’t hurt anyone on purpose.
The psychic then ranks the dudes in the order of most compatible to least: 12 Pack / Dave, London, Flex, Sinister. Daisy is more confused than ever!
After all the tarot cards are put away, the gang + exes go outside to party it up. Flex’s girl Kia lets him know that London’s friend mentioned that London was seeing someone. Flex is floored and tells 12 Pack / Dave, who responds similarly.
Flex then calls London out in front of everybody and starts a huge yelling match, calling London the f word (the other one!) and such. The fight nearly turns physical, when a drunken Kia takes a spill on top of the picnic table, knocking everything over and diverting everyone’s attention. Close call!
Regardless, they decide its time for the ex-gfs to go home. On their way out, Daisy pulls Kia aside and asks her if she would get back with Flex were he to be sent home. Kia tells her no, because she sees the way Flex looks at Daisy, and its the same way he used to look at her. Swoon! Daisy takes this to heart and goes back to be with the boys.
Now that we’re calm, Daisy asks each guy who they would bring to the finale, if they had to pick one. Each guy takes their turn and picks 12 Pack / Dave, which is somewhat confusing to me, but I’ll go with it, cuz that guy’s starting to crack me up. Daisy decides then, on the spot, that 12 Pack / Dave will be going to the finale, case closed. 12 Pack / Dave is totally stunned.
Next day: elimination time! The boys are all up on the chopping block, with the exception of 12 Pack / Dave who’s in for sure. Daisy starts with London, telling him she has as much chemistry with him as she has doubts. Regardless, she wants to take a chance and let him stay. You’re going to Maui for the finale, London!
Next up is Sinister. She has him approach the stand and sends him home. She doesn’t have strong feelings for him and was only keeping him in the house to not hurt his feelings. And besides, who wants to see that guy in a bathing suit?
As Sinister leaves the room sniffling (”If she doesn’t want me, maybe someone else will”), Daisy turns to Flex. In a pretty predictable twist, Daisy decides to keep him, too, because of the way his ex-gf says he looks at her. Flex is stunned! But stoked!
So to re-cap, Flex, 12 Pack / Dave, and London are going to Maui with Daisy! Wahoooo! I couldn’t have planned it better myself.
