TPiRecap: 28 February 2011

Episode #: 5461K
Airdate: 28 February 2011
VTR: 1 February 2011
First Four: Lauren, Benjamin, Kaylee, L'tanya (R-L)
Today's Models: Manuela Abrealez, Amber Lancaster, Rachel Reynolds (ABS by Allen Schwartz)
Today's Announcer: George Gray

Already it's March. Wow. 2011 is moving at warp speed, it seems...

One Wrong Price welcomes me back from my week off... like that giant stack of paperwork on your desk that piled up in your absence:
  1. Brushed-steel executive desk & leather chair
  2. 6pc Diane Von Furstenberg accessory collection
  3. Apple Mac Pro desktop computer (1TB HD, 8GB RAM, antivirus "to prevent computer hacking"... I already wanna kill someone)

The worst part of this setup is that, to me, the initial arrangement looked the most right out of anything! Although that's usually a sign to simply Flop (as indeed it was here), $9,696 looked terrible to me for some reason. Shows what I know.

Benjamin: "I don't do Apple."

The iPad will help Curtis win 10 Chances, because everyone wants to use an iPad while driving:
  1. Old-fashinoed pasta maker
  2. Michael C. Fina Kate Spade flatware service

I was afraid of that, except I was afraid it would've been on the lightsaber.


Can I request a moratorium on mocking Dava's antics during her Come On Down? Not because she doesn't deserve it, but because quite frankly, giving such actions the satisfaction of complaints only feeds the troll. Besides, I don't want to put up with a whole lot of hate today, okay? Well... no more than what I demonstrated during that 10 Chances recap, at least.
