With still 7 boys remaining – who will be dismissed tonight? The boys are indoors as it’s pouring and the boys have a special guest – Ellyse Perry, who represents Australia in both cricket and soccer – what an underachiever. Together with Lee it’s announced that this weeks theme is preperation.
This weeks captain will be the most prepared, so Lee and Ellyse will go through their kit bags. There are wet towels, dirty sox and jocks but Josh is immaculate and is made skipper. Graham talks to Chris about his ankle and it’s not looking good, he basically is saying go before you are told to. They head to an underground are and will have to see if they can model.
Charlotte Dawson tells them it will be a walkoff and along with models from last seasons ANTM dresses them all up, bronzes them and away they go. Jakes a charachter along with Dutchie and a couple rip their buttons off! But hang on, now it’s swim wear and the boys are stuffing sox down their pants. The boys strut and Jake tosses his sock at the girls and makes the girls squeal but Ben wins for a lay down pose.
Chris has been thinking long and hard and has decided to leave as his ankle is too bad. Graham is really proud of him and it’s all quite sad, so we are down to 6.
Graham meets the boys at a house and they will have to make a mini urn – representing the Ashes. The boys are in hysterics as they are shown how to mould the clay on the pottery wheel – even Graham is cracking up and the innuendos are flying! Whoevers looks the closest wins an XBOX360 and the winner is Ben – again!
This next cricket game is a 30 over match and the field is still wet and the opposition is the QLD invitational youth side. 5 local boys will join the superstars and they are fieldling first, and things are not going well. Josh is ok, says AB but needs something more. The boys fielding improves and it’s 2/100, 3/111, 4/114 and the QLD youth end on 7/144. Now Graham has decided that he only wants the remaining six superstars to bat and not the fill ins.
Opening are James and Jake and James hits a 6 off the first ball and after James is out Ben comes in and he gets a 6 too and is then caught. Josh is on and Jake has to improve on his runs but is out and it’s 3/66. Here comes Dutchie who along with Josh is getting some good runs – I swear Dutchie will win this competition. This partnership has got them a win and are 3/151 in less than 25 overs. Josh gets man of the match and $1k.
It’s raining again so the boys have to play indoors and are joined by a special guest former Australian bowler – Andy Bichel. He is on the selectors commitee and is looking at all the boys closely. James thinks his biggest competition is either Dutchie or Jake and I personally think Dutchie and Jake will be the final two. Now for the dismissal.
Josh is called first as the skipper and he says he knows his bowling is not up to scratch, but he captained well this week. Oh My God, I was sure he was safe but Border just called him out – bloody hell. It’s going to be one of those weeks – man of the match get’s sent home. Next up is James “Mossy” Moss and he iis safe – phew! Now for Dutchie – AB says there asr things he needs to improve but is safe. David is called up and AB thinks he’s been developing nicely but has recently stalled – he’s safe (this guy always slips under my radar). Lastly it’s Jake and they say he’s a great player but he’s out. He’s good enough for 1st class cricket but mentally neeeds to get there.
So much for my top two predictions – I think it was completely the wrong decision. If he’s good enough let him try and win the competition. Ben is safe – so that means all my money is on Dutchie. Next week they are going to South Africa – wow that should be a good episode, even if Jake isn’t there and deserved to be.
