As another “True Beauty” season comes to a close, we’re faced with a fairly lame trio of contenders.
On Monday, July 19, the show will choose a winner, the good-looking person who’s proved they have the most inner beauty through hidden camera challenges that capture their true colors when it comes to acting kindly and honorably.
But we all know that the fun of the show is to see them behave badly.
Let’s see who’s left:
At this point it seems to be a foregone conclusion that Erika Othen, the bubbly cocktail waitress and singer from Long Island, will win since she’s never been up for elimination and she tends to go above and beyond when it comes to the “compassion” challenges. She’s won two challenges and only failed one challenge, when she took a peek at interview questions. She’s rather annoying, but hey, one can be annoying and nice at the same time.
Taylor Bills could give her a run for her money though. Although the former pro athlete complained a few too many times about people in the house and is a bit of a drunk, he’s been a relatively upstanding guy. He’s only been in the Bottom 2 once, won two challenges and only failed two hidden camera challenges: When he didn’t console the bride who was berated by her “momzilla” and when he cussed up a storm after seeing a focus group critique him.
Finally, there’s Craig Franczyk, who’s his own biggest fan. The retail manager has won only one challenge and has been in the Bottom 2 twice. He’s failed a whopping five challenges though, and it’s consistently because of his competitive nature, which he’s embraced unrepentantly and chooses over compassion. We can’t wait to see his reel of shame.
So, is this a contest for actual true inner beauty or for who’s the least objectionable?
