Episode Summary

EDIT
Porked and Beans
AIRED:
The suitors are told to choose who they believe among them is least compatible with Austin and with Piper. Gerald is chosen least compatible with Piper and Eleanor is chosen least compatible with Austin. That means they each get some alone time with the respective bachelor and bachelorette - that is, until "tragedy" strikes. A Falcon Twist is interrupted for the "news" that Ingrid's grandfather died. As such, weepy Eleanor loses her alone-time to Ingrid. The suitors all take part in a game called Love is a Battlefield in which they must perform better than models at outrageous tasks for trips. Tim gets the dirty-talk of his life from Cammy, but it isn't enough to beat the apparently X-Rated performance of the models. Piper's supposed parents return, except now they're playing the roles of Austin's parents. The girls are given tasks to perform and all complete them except Cammy. Her Porked and Beans soft-core video is played, but Austin tosses Ingrid, saying that she had lied to him about her grandfather.moreless

    • QUOTES (15)

    • NOTES (5)

      • In going to commercial before the "twist" with Ingrid's grandfather, the promo showed Derek Newcastle saying "This is less of a twist and more of just really terrible news." Rhett Reese, one of the program's executive producers, revealed at his official website blog that this was a remnant from a much more outrageous version of the scene that had been filmed.

      • The opening is changed to say "Meet Tim Walsh and Ingrid Wiese - in search of romance on a reality show she figured out was fake. So meet Tim Walsh and Amanda Naughton." Ingrid is introduced as "The Schmo Turned Actress."

      • Promotional Consideration Supplied By: Allegro Cozumel by Occidental and Orbitz.com.

      • Towards the end of Cammy's dirty-talking session with Tim, the following appears on close-captioning that can not be heard on the audio: "[slow motion orgasm] Tim: [slow motion] She knocked us over."

      • The episode title "Porked and Beans" refers to the soft-core porn video supposedly done by the Cammy character, as revealed in "The Crisis."

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Amanda: It was her Dad's grandfather. It was her Dad's dad that passed.
        The plotline with Ingrid's dead grandfather references things that happened on several reality shows, but most prominently Survivor. In the "Pearl Islands" edition of that show, Jon Dalton, a.k.a. "Johnny Fairplay" had a friend come on the show and say that his grandma had died in order to win a challenge.
