With "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" playing in the background, Poison's Bret Michaels picked Jes to be his so-called "rock-star girlfriend" on the final episode of Rock of Love. Click above to check out Rock Daily's interview with Michaels, where he admits his true feelings about the girls on the show and reveals what went on behind the scenes, and keep reading for our final Rock Reality Show Recap of the series:
Every week Poison frontman Bret Michaels searches for a worthy life partner on Rock of Love, while Rock Daily searches for ways to reference "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" in our Rock Reality Show Recaps. Here's our take on the finale episode:
Sixty Minutes of Rockin' Reality in Three Sentences: The two remaining women competing for Poison frontman Bret Michaels' heart get catty as the trio hits Mexico for the big finale. Michaels takes Heather dune-buggy riding for their date, during which he starts to suffer a diabetes-related attack (Heather ignores his pleas for food in favor of more off-roading); later she tells Bret she loves him in an attempt to end questioning about her life as a stripper. Jes and Michaels party on a yacht, and when his diabetes acts up again at dinner, she cries out of concern when he presents her with an Epipen.
Did Every Rose Have Its Thorn?: You already know the answer to that one (and if you didn't, you clearly haven't been paying much attention to VH1's highest-rated show of the summer ... or ever heard Bret Michaels speak for more than ten minutes at a time). As Jes walks toward Michaels in the show's final scene, the acoustic starts a'strummin', which could only mean one thing: A song filled with lyrics about a broken heart is now being used to underscore a scene about the exact opposite emotion.
The Most Ridiculous Part: A mind-blowing montage of Heather getting dolled up for the final elimination ceremony, as she slips into a canary-yellow dress, sprays her hair into 1984 and shoots a glass of vodka. "There's no way he can look at me and turn me down," she says. And yes, there is a mirror in the room.
The Rockin' Finish: Michaels faces the two woman and poses them one question: would they both be his rock-star girlfriends? Heather, whose apparent love of the ladies comes up a few times in the episode, quickly answers "I'd love to," while Jes says hell to the no. And with that, Michaels dismisses Heather, who stalks off angrily, and picks Jes. So â€¦ what's Heather going to do with that Bret tattoo on her neck? Turn it into fret? Perhaps we'll find out during next week's reunion episode, which Michaels warns will be frosty (see video, above).
