Last night, America was graced by another episode of the CW’s Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll, the new reality show in which a group of amateur back-up dancers vie for the chance to be professional back-up dancers. Our guide to the ass-centric second installment after the click-through, and it starts with a truly gonzo–but not inaccurate–episode title.
Highlights from Episode 2: “The women dance in a glass box”:
- The girls move into their house, which includes a giant dance room, oversized posters of the Pussycat Dolls, and a shriekatorium.
- Pussycat Dolls member Jessica brings the girls flowers, and some advice: Be confident! Also, don’t blow your hot-pants budget all at once.
- During dance rehearsal, Chelsea is admonished for too much bopping, not enough popping.
- Chelsea totally thinks that Melissa S is being, like, fake? But then, ohmigod, Jamie thinks Mariela and Asia are her BFF! Everyone’s thinking things about other things!
- Dance instructor Mikey minces wildly around the studio, shrieks hysterically, and wears giant frilly scarves. This guy is so lucky! How do they keep him from hitting on all the girls?
- The girls go to a Los Angeles nightclub, where they watch women dance behind giant glass panes in the middle of a room–all, of course, in the name of learning confidence.
- When the girls realize that it’s their turn perform in the Bunderdome, Melissa R wonders what will happen if her priest sees her dancing in a skimpy costume, not realizing that no man over the age of fifty even knows that the CW exists.
- Lil’ Kim and Geffen Records chairman Ron Fair help to judge the final round, in which the girls break up into groups to sing and dance. Melissa S is the only 24-year-old woman from Michigan not to know the lyrics to “Crazy In Love.”
- Melissa S (the fake one) and Brittany (the Brittany one) are nearly cut during the elimination round. Once Brittany’s name is called, she’s told to hang up her giant pink boa and leave.
