Chichi mama, the choice thing went like this: the girls were called individually into the salon. First Zora. He told her how it had been such a roller coaster, so on and off between them, and she was sitting there nodding, a little sad because it seemed like she was out. Then suddenly, out of the blue, he said "I choose you." And after that, he told her about the money (or lack). She rolled her eyes, and stared away. Didn't say anything.
Next scene (about 15 mins of commercials later
: ), in room with Sarah. He tells her about how it'd been such a blast, what good times they'd been having, and then about the money. This is where the whole show was worth it. Sarah put on the biggest fakest Hollywood grin you'll ever see (Meryl Streep couldn't act it like that if she tried) and says, "Do you think the money was important to me?" After a long silence (Evan not knowing any one-syllable words to express his deep doubts about her), he says, "I didn't choose you." Again that fake smile, even bigger this time.
She was shocked out of her mind. And he just kinda took off. Didn't even thank her for the BJ
Zora was to meet him later that eve, to tell him what she decided to do. If "yes" she'd get the diamond ring. After some stressful minutes and many commercials, she (surprise!) decided to show up (in an awful gown). She told Joe that the deceit was too much to bear, esp after all his "trust me" things, but.... that the money had been a turnoff anyway, and she'd like to "continue their journey."
RIng, champagne (lots of booze in that show... Anyone notice that?), she even endearingly asks if she can kiss him. Then the twist: The butler has a $1M check for them. Talk about an anticlimax...
DD wants attention. The real twist follows in 20 mins or so.... (Ha! I learned from fox!)
