Rock Reality Show Recap: Bret Michaels Tests His Girls' Mettle on 'Rock of Love'


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: Seven girls remain in the Rock of Love house, so Bret Michaels tests their ability to rock on the road by putting them through a tour bus challenge that demands they change into a slutty outfit in a Port-A-Pottie, dig through a dumpster of goo in search of a lost guitar pick and shove their past security in order to be with him - who's gonna give these ladies their dignity back after the show ends like Mo'Nique did for the Flavor of Love gals ... Courtney Love? While winner Brandi M. attends a hockey game with Bret, Heather and Lacey continue to treat the show like Survivor: Eightiesville (Michaels does wear that bandanna like a buff everywhere) and plot to take out sensitive Samantha, who chills out long enough to pole dance during Michaels' birthday party, then returns to full-on angst mode.

Did Every Rose Have Its Thorn?: You better believe it. One of challenge's tests required contestants to rearrange words on a blackboard until they spelled out the chorus of Michaels' most beloved track. And yes, somebody (Mia) got it wrong. Maybe producers aren't piping it into the house where the girls live 24/7 ...

The Most Ridiculous Part: Michaels never seems to wonder why tattletale Lacey shows up in his room yet again to rat out a girl for not really wanting to be there (in this case, Sam). How did he make it in the music biz for so long while taking everything people say at face value? This may explain Native Tongue.

The Rockin' Finish: In the end, Michaels can't possibly part with Sam knowing she now "has pole skills" and tells brooding Magdalena she's the next Fallen Angel.
