So as we all know, we have Blind Date's tribute to Tough Enough this week.

Today's episode featured Chris Nowinski. It was cute -- naturally we started off with the girl having no clue who he was, finding out that he's a pro wrestler, assuming he's a brutish idiot. Then finding out that he went to Harvard, which turned her around on the spot. (Really put her NYU in its place.) By the end of the thing, she's all over him -- literally. The absolute best was when they were outside her door, she was putting quite the moves on him. She put her hands on his ribcage while inviting him in, & she leaned over to kiss him. While she's kissing him, he looks straight into the camera -- is that considered breaking kayfabe? Or is it simple terror of the shit that the guys will give him when this airs? -- & the Blind Date people give him a caption saying "What would Triple H do?" LOL He rallies with a "I could come in for a drink. Definitely." "Cool. Definitely." Bye, Chris! Check in with the camera crew on your way out!!

Of course she's going to go ga-ga over the guy once she finds out he's famous and has money, AND built and handsome. It really wasn't surprising that that plain chick liked him.

As for the "Kayfabe" thing, I think it's just a result of having experience with TV cameras around.

He didn't seem too interested in her, as if maybe he had a real girlfriend and the WWE was simply making him do this for PR. When she was all over him, he was decidedly not all over her, what with the leaning away from the kiss and the not hugging her back. I'd bet nothing happened inside her place.

And I *seriously* doubt they went on a second date.

Who knows? Maybe he WAS into it, but knew he had to be careful "On Camera." Hell, I bet you he ended up using that girl like a groupie (maybe one of his first?) and then went on his way...

Today's episode : Nidia !

They set her up with a guy named "Gleb". Gleb?!?! Whatever. Apparently he does karate as a hobby, & is in pretty decent shape. And he didn't actually seem like an ass. I didn't find him at all attractive, but that's just me.

Nidia did a very smart thing here -- she had Jamie (supposedly) set up to be the jealous boyfriend rescue call. Very smart woman. This allowed her to act like she was reasonably into the date -- hey, maybe she actually was -- but had the out of "if Jamie weren't in the picture ..." Major saving of egos all around.

The first rescue call seemed to be early on in the date, & let her establish that there is a WWE Superstar boyfriend lurking somewhere. That didn't quite seem to have enough impact on the guy, so she pointed out that he's the CruiserWeight Champion -- that seemed to help. And also allowed her to say, "No Jamie, I won't get drunk & do anything", which was useful in keeping the guy interested. (Hope springs eternal in the horny guy's ...) Then we had the second call later on, just to make sure that she still had her fallback "out" available.

The one fun facoid that I didn't know before is that she was born in Puerto Rico. Hence the fluent spanish conversation with Rey Mysterio.

My favourite part of this episode was when they were at a place that makes action figures. She had grudgingly shared that she's "in school", "learning wrestling", but hadn't really said "I'm a Diva". The guy clearly didn't know her. As they're looking at the action figures, she finds one of Maven. "Oh my god, look at this!" You just knew that part of her wanted to say "Where the hell is mine!!", but thought better of that under the circumstances.

Tomorrow: Jackie Gayda!

Today's Episode: Jackie Gayda !

Now this is a lot more like what we expect from Blind Date. The notes on Jackie say, "Loves: Rich guys. Hates: Control Freaks". Her notable interview quotes: "I need a little bit of edge & a little bit of spice." "Somebody who can make you laugh." Given that, they set her up with a guy who is a grad student & lab tech in "a biomedical sciences program, doing research in the lab & taking the required courses." Uh-huh...

He asked what she does. "I wrestle." (At this point, I'm quite sure he was hoping to find out what local strip club she "wrestles" at.) "Do you watch MTV at all? Tough Enough 2? I'm 'Jackie from Tough Enough 2'." This seemed not to register with our hero, in spite of his avowed MTV viewership. We're not off to a flying start here.

Their major planned activity was going to a lingere store to try on clothes. She comes out wearing some little black thing; he comes out wearing a pink sateen robe. (Note to guys hoping to impress a Diva: Pink sateen is a poor wardrobe selection.)

Back in the car, Jackie is thrilled to learn that for 2 semesters in college he worked with lab rats, injecting them with cocaine & methamphetamines -- the rats would get loose & our hero would have to chase them down the halls. Jackie finds this to be scintillating conversation.

We move on to dinner. Our hero is telling Jackie in great detail about the application of drugs to destroy tumor cells, & the dangers to the patient of over-bla-bla-bla. Jackie is pawing the tablecloth in boredom, & the Blind Date captioner suggests: "The Touch, the Feel, of Boredom." Via clever editing, he segues straight into "So what do you think? Do we make a good looking couple?" "Weeelllll ..." Even our hero recognises that as a bad sign. The Blind Date captioner helpfully announces "The Longest Rejection in Blind Date History". They apparently spend some more time together, during which she breaks out every cliche of "concentrating on my career", "travelling so much", etc., until she finally gets a chance to bail to a cab.

The show's host's assessment, on the throw to commercial: "Wow, that was rough."

After commercial, we get their respective summaries. Our hero was quite pleased with his handling of his pink robe, & "If I had my way, I'd definitely see Jackie again." Jackie's comments included, "I'm a WWE Superstar & wrestler, & I'm out with this guy who just chases rats around all day?!?!?? I don't think I'd give Josh a second date. Too boring. Too uhhhlllhh."

Come to think of it, I wonder if she still has that boyfriend that was such a plot point in TE2 ??? (That's it. I'm sure she was, in fact, completely turned on by our hero's lab rat stories, & was only putting him off because of the boyfriend back home. Yeah, that's it.)

I just hope some dumb sucker tries to get fresh with Linda Miles. Seen the pipes on this chick? She'll mash some potatoes if she don't get her proper respect. Or in my case, sigh...marbles.

Instead of 'I was on Tough Enough 2,' she should have asked 'Didn't you see me have the worst match in wrestling history?' Except for Nowinski and at times Nidia, why do I wish that the remaining Tough Enough kids go play in traffic?

I seem to recall that Jamie Noble's married with at least one kid.

Not that that means anything in this business, but still.

I'm just trying to figure out why they sent Nidia on a date if she has a boyfriend. I mean, what's the point? This isn't Change of heart. Jeez.

And Jackie Gayda kept mentioning how she was a star. Repeatedly. She thoroughly did not impress me.

My god! Does Jackie Gay-duh already has a Sable complex while still in Ohio freakin Valley.

It seems that there's a bunch of girls in the WWE right now who actually matter that seems to have less of an ego then Gayda.

I'd like to see Gayda come back to the WWE, umm around the same time as Jazz comes back and let them do a houseshow together. Jazz could work "snug" with Gayda for about 5 minutes.

Then maybe the WWE and NWATNA can do another exchange. Jackie Gayda for Daffney

Last night was Linda M. They set her up with some awesome guy, and everything was working well. But nothing came of it, ebcause she had to fly back to Louisville the next day.

Note to Blind Date producers:
1.) don't set up people who are already dating someone.
2.) don't fly people across the country just to go on a single date, and then fly them abck. They could have just as easily done this show in Louisville, which would work for everyone except Nidia and Maven (you know, the two successful ones.)

Of course, I wonder if this was Vince's idea and not theirs.
