Rock Reality Show Recap: Bret Michaels Channels Simon Cowell, Judges "Talent" on "Rock of Love 2"


Every week Poison frontman Bret Michaels searches for a worthy life partner on Rock of Love 2, while Rock Daily searches for ways to reference "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" in our Rock Reality Show Recaps. Here's our take on episode two:

Sixty Minutes of Rockin' Reality in Two Sentences: The ladies engage in a peep-show-style talent competition (skills range from belly dancing to ironing to martial arts to stripping) and three winners survive an off-roading expedition on ATVs with Bret. After the VIP girls turn in early while everyone else parties, Michaels inexplicably demands a dance-off, so the next day Inna and Veronique arrange one""but their accents are so thick he can barely understand who the winners are.

Did Every Rose Have Its Thorn?: "It was like a dream come true. I mean, what better moment could you ask for?" ponders Roxy. She could only be referring to one thing""the maiden performance of "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" on acoustic guitar by Mr. Bret Michaels (the women gathered around him and gawked like they were watching Dylan go electric).

The Most Ridiculous Part: After Michaels scolds the VIP girls for skipping the party for beauty rest, they put together their Sharpies and glitter and make him "an amazing card" to make up for it. Bret's response to their fifth-grade art project? "This is everything awesome."

The Rockin' Finish: Sara gets booted for admitting she came to the show on a dare but Amber, who was practically eliminated last week, cozies up to Bret during the talent-winners' date with Daisy and Peyton and secures her place in the house. That means Korie and Niki are sent home, providing Veronique with at least one more week to be naked and incomprehensible.
