And just like that, another round of Rock of Love has drawn to a close. It seems like only yesterday 20 upstanding young women were fighting for the chance to be Bret Michaels’ girlfriend, reading raps off of STD info sheets and taking shots out of each others’ lady parts. I wish Bret the best in his quest for true love, but I can’t be the only one secretly hoping this relationship doesn’t work out so we get a fourth season of this delightfully trashy show, right?
Anyway, going into last night’s showdown between Taya and Mindy, the question was whether he’d go with the bats— crazy one or the other bats— crazy one. Not that I’d question the emotional stability of any woman who would compete for the affection of Bret Michaels on national television, but…oh, wait, YES I WOULD. That doesn’t mean I love this show any less, however.
The finale was lacking in the crazy drunken antics that make this show such a trainwreck to watch, but the final elimination was entertaining. I couldn’t decide which part made me more uncomfortable: Taya looking like she was about to vomit the entire time, or Mindy’s unsupported cleavage. In the end, I think Bret made the right choice — Mindy was far too insecure to date him, and Penthouse Pet of the Year Taya has the right pedigree to date an ex-hair band frontman — but we’ll see how long this ”relationship” lasts.
Did you catch the RoL Bus finale, PopWatchers? If you didn’t, watch the final elimination below. Were you happy that Bret chose Taya in the end, or were you rooting for Mindy? Whose flat-ironed hair looked better, Bret’s weave or Taya’s actual hair? And did you really expect Bret to put a ring on it?
