Welcome back to Outback Jack, where we find a handsome young Australian man named ďJackĒ who is searching for a soulmate; a life partner. Is there a better way to achieve this elusive goal than by selecting from 12 ultra high-maintenance women with whom he shares no common interests and who live half a planet away? Well, maybe not, but there are plenty of blondes among the 12, so maybe thatís good enough.
We start with recaps and precaps, and Iím sure weíll end with previews. If you missed last weeks episode and want to know what happened, try Esteeís episode 2 summary Ė itís much funnier than the actual show. If you want to know whatís going to happen next week, check out the week 4 summary Estee will be writing next week.
Itís time for Jack and the six remaining ladies: Maria, Mary, Marissa, Adrienne, Natalie, and Cortney, to ditch camp again and set out for their next destination. This time, they drive off in ďbull catchersĒ, which are jeep-like vehicles, specifically designed to throw mud onto the vehicles occupants - just to keep them alert! They drive through rivers, meadows, and dirt roads. It looks like fun, but the girls find that it has given the term ďgetting dirtyĒ a whole new meaning, although Iím sure at least one or two of them must have some mud-wrestling experience to draw from. Still en-route to wherever theyíre going, they come across a big python in the road Ė awww it looks like itís hurt! Jack stops to check it out, and decides they must get it to an animal sanctuary, STAT! But first, they all take turns petting the ailing reptile. Most of the girls like the feel of the slimy snake on her skins, except for Natalie, who hates everything about the Outback so far, except for Jack.
They make their way to a conveniently located animal rescue sanctuary that is nearby. Coincidentally, itís a place Jack visits frequently and he has friends there. Mary comments that Jack likes animals, so she may have to put on her leopard g-string wile sheís here. Yea Mary, Iím sure Jack will appreciate anything that detracts attention from your face. (wow, thatís a little snarky even for me!) The girls ooh and ahhh over the animals so that we can be touched by their compassion. Predictably, though, Natalie wants no part of it Ė sheís not going anywhere near those creatures!
While Jack is occupied elsewhere, JD appears to tell the girls privately that for the next elimination, it will be up to the girls to vote out one of their own. Furthermore, they may not tell Jack about this turn of events. Immediately, Marissa knows sheís screwed, as the girls pretty much unanimously hate her, and itís a secret to no one. I think she may have picked up this vibe when the other girls started cheering and giving each other high fives when JD announced the twist. Personally, I canít believe this ridiculous twist. I thought this was a love show. Will the girls have Jackís interests in mind? I doubt it.
Mary wants them to sit down as a group and catalog their differences, but no one else is interested in doing that (the decision has already been made). Of course, Marissa is Jackís clear favorite, so the producers will do something to keep Marissa in the game, right? Iím looking for another twist later in this episode.
Natalie tells us itís unfortunate Marissa didnít make friends with everyone and now itís backfiring on her. I canít bring myself to take Natalie seriously though because every time she speaks, all I see are her huge, fake, collagen filled lips. They are so big and unnatural, you can actually see them move before she speaks! I feel like Iím watching an old Japanese horror movie thatís been poorly dubbed.
