Every week Poison frontman Bret Michaels searches for a worthy life partner on Rock of Love Bus, while Rock Daily searches for ways to reference "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" in our recaps. Here's our take on episode two:
Sixty Minutes of Rockin' Reality in Three Sentences: Bret Michaels' tour pulls into Indianapolis, where he tests the girls' devotion by forcing them to write vows for a mock wedding where the brides wear, well, nothing, and groom Bret sports one of those T-shirts with a tux printed on the front (classy!). Taya, Farrah and Brittanya win a hayride date with Bret, which rankles the increasingly psychotic Brittaney (he wasn't swayed by her mushy five-page vow). And just before elimination, Melissa articulates the words we're all thinking: "It is hard to kiss you after all those yucky girls kissed you."
Hey-Oh!: Melissa's wedding gift to Bret is a lucky two-dollar bill that provides him with a set-up for his best punchline yet: "I don't know which is worse - the two-dollar bill is her family's heirloom, or that she's actually giving it to me." But Brittanya hands over a piercing from the region from which the ousted Gia likes to serve drinks, which is enough to win Michaels' favor - for now.
The Most Ridiculous Part: Big John hosts a round of brain-busting trivia ("If Bret has 16 groupies on a bus, three get drunk and pass out, how many menage-a-trois can he have?") and since nobody can add, Bret doles out special all-access passes to whoever he thinks is hot (Brittanya, Taya and Natasha). Feeling slighted, crazed Brittaney causes a near race riot by telling African-American Natasha, "You got the fucking thing because you're black." Doesn't she know we live in a post-racial America now?
The Rockin' Send-Off: Bret identifies party animal Marcia, the busty and needy Brittaney and mixed-signal-sending Melissa as his three biggest trainwrecks, but keeps them around for ratings (I mean because he feels a real connection with them!). Unsurprisingly, Constandina, who "thinks about sex 24/7" but "took a religious vow that I wouldn't have all-the-way sex for three years" is booted, along with Samantha and wild-animal trainer Megan.
