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 episode six
Sixty Minutes in Two Sentences: There's only eight ladies left in the Rock of Love house (which is decked out in so much gaudy animal print, even the pool table looks like a dead leopard), so the producers let the girls channel their animosity for each other into a friendly game of tackle mud football. Jes scores a point for human decency by knocking manipulative Lacey to the ground, and also wins the solo date with Bret, which begins with Michaels announcing he may not know a lot about relationships, but "What I do know how to do is music." He then breaks into a "new" song called "All I Ever Needed," which sounds suspiciously like "Every Rose Has Its Thorn."
The Most Ridiculous Part: Heather and Lacey plot to take out Erin. Their biggest ammunition: Erin's boss from the restaurant where she works in Chicago calls to report that Justin Timberlake is coming by. We hope JT can collect royalties on gratuitous repetition of his name, because over the next forty minutes his name is said fourteen times. Most hilarious use goes to Heather: "Get the hell out of here and go hang out with Justin Timberlake, you star-fucker!" Pot! Kettle!
The Rockin' Twist: When Erin nearly catches Heather and Lacey scheming against her, the pair struggle to change the subject and land on "Your hair looks fun!" Undeterred, Heather writes Bret a letter selling out the rest of the girls, and Bret must make a difficult decision: believe Heather (whose past reality-show appearances include a memorable turn on The Surreal Life, where she "tried to bang Vanilla Ice," according to Brandy) or trust Erin.
The Rockin' Finish: In the end, Michaels picks Heather, who dresses like 1987 for the occasion, and sends Erin Unskinny Bop'in on her way.
