Welcome back to Who Wants To Marry My Dad 2, the show that seeks to prove a woman CAN get desperate enough to marry a man she barely knows. Heck, I’m all for it, so let’s see what happens this week in Episode 4. Sadly, this summary will have to be short and sweet as I am leaving for vacation in a matter of hours, and they don’t have internet access where I’m going. It’s a place called “Tucson”.
The show resumes right where it left off last week. A justice of the peace is there to remind the women and Marty that the name of the game is Who Wants to MARRY My Dad, not Who Wants To Fake An Engagement With My Dad, Go On a Nice Trip, Then Never See Him Again, Claiming She Couldn’t Leave Her Hometown to Join The Man of Her Dreams. That was season one! No, this time, they are expecting to end with a wedding, not a mere proposal. Marty and the women are SHOCKED by this unexpected revelation. The girls retire to their room so they can spy on the women who are discussing the idea of a whirlwind romance. Melanie has actually done it before – she has married a guy she knew for only three weeks! Marilyn thinks Marty will go through with it (but she doesn’t say how SHE would feel about the idea). Suzanne reasons it out – he’s stable financially, has a great family - Lola and the children, plus the sexual attraction is there. Stacy feels an attraction to him since the first moment, while Nicole just wants to kiss the guy. The girls are stunned that all the women are actually considering the idea of insta-marriage.
In the morning, the girls reveal it was a merely a test! No imminent wedding; they just wanted to see whether any of the women would bolt out the front door based on the news.
Today is Pretend Wedding Day. The ladies will try on gowns, Dad will get a tux and they’ll meet back at the house for pictures. There’s plenty of shopping footage, and since I’m a guy, I’m just going to skip over this part, except to mention that they ALL look hot!
On the way home, the girls’ limo is pulled over by a police motorcycle cop. They are cited for too many passengers! One woman must be eliminated and left at the curb. Literally. As they get ready to eliminate a womn, Brooke tells them “you can’t imagine how hard this is”. Hey Brooke, did you ever stop to think that maybe they can imagine since it’s pretty hard on them too? After much deliberation, they select Nicole, who is dropped off in her wedding gown on the steps of the church, - every woman’s nightmare, am I right? A cab picks her up with tin cans dragging behind it and a "Just Eliminated" sign on the back.
