    Re: Erica Ellyson

    Erica comes across as a very sweet person, I think it's going to be sad to see her so upset next week.
    I think she'll have learned a lesson that it's better to come clean at the beginning and lose the guy than spring this kind of information on him once he's fallen for you.
    Perhaps that is how she is in her regular dating life.
    I get the feeling she was asked to withhold information for the sake of the show having a big reveal.

Erica also knew that this guys mom would NOT like it at all and that for mom it would be a deal breaker. Now Erica knows EVERYTHING that she has done in the past: Penthouse, Howard Stern Show, other shows and those adult movies. If she really wanted a shot at the guy then she should have come clean in the beginning instead of stringing him and his mom along for however many weeks it has been now. BOTH mom and guy are going to feel betrayed as she claimed to be one way but in reality she is the opposite.
    Well, except as time has gone on, its become more obvious I think that Erica is a producer plant. Oh, we knew that already, since a "Pet of the Year" doesn't just show up at casting, but I think she's consciously playing a scripted role. And on THAT basis seems to be doing a decent job of it--assuming you have no overwhelming moral outrage at someone acting for a paycheck.

    REAL: She's a Penthouse Pet, and doesn't have any problem with borderline sexual activities on camera.
    FAKE: That she regrets it. She's still in the honeymoon phase of her career, so I doubt she's had time to.
    REAL: She's a smart girl, and her natural reserve seems fairly convincing. Outside her job, I'm thinking that's not totally unreal.
    FAKE: Her confessionals--they come off as pretty tightly scripted.
    REAL: She's actually fooling the mothers. Whether or not she actually feels bad about it is a toss-up. No idea.
    FAKE: Any real interest in any of these guys, even the dumb but good looking firefighter. Sure, she might be attracted for real, but she's no dummy. I bet she knows almost nobody meets anyone for real on shows like this.

    One other thing that grates on me ... her lil sob (paraphrased) "Why can't they just like me for ME, and not for what I've done in the past?"

    Honey, your values are reflected in the choices you make. If you want people to accept your morals, that you see nothing wrong with posing for Penthouse and all the rest, then you must be willing to accept their morals as well. You cannot have it both ways.

    I'm not buying her "act" either! Do you think there's a chance any of the others were told about her?

    Several years a lurker, now starting to post.

    On the surface this show is full of dumb bimbos and momma's boys and pushy moms. In a devious way it is a slo mo trainwreck with the producers playing games in the background, such as the classic sleazy FLOMs. I LIKE your analysis and as long as we are aware of the games being played it is a hoot to watch.

    Not a fan. You can't tell me that anyone who poses nude anywhere is sweet and innocent. They've either seen it or done it.

    And, she should have fessed up a LONG time ago. Selfish to her, the guy, the other girls, and the mom.

    I agree that she should have fessed up a long time ago too. If she was proud enough of her body that she gave permission for the photos and videos to be taken, then she should be adult enough to admit to what she's done. It's not like it's something that can be hidden forever. That's why I'm leaning towards the idea that she is a plant, put in just for drama.

    All these girls are "plants". They were recruited for this show and shady backgrounds were part of the casting agenda, thus the folders and emphasis on their secrets.

    She did not expose her background because it is not part of the plot to do so. They are saving that bomb for the finale.

    She took a year off to work for Penthouse. The money is good and will pay for her education if she returns, which she claims. She may not; other doors may open.

    I don't see what she has done as damning. Penthouse is a respected publication, she is not making porn movies in someones garage. It is not a big deal to me nor will it be to her future husband. She is not on this show to meet anyone either! She may get another year contract from Penthouse from the exposure.

    I don't have a problem with adult "modeling" and I don't have a problem with any of the cast (girls, boys, or moms) going on the show as a means of making money or gaining publicity.

    That's why a cheesy show like this should exist - all in good fun, no serious but really not-so-serious marriage proposals, etc.

    I don't like the deceipt, though. Although now that I think about it, it's no different than Survivor. You do what you need to do to stay in the game. And that's what it is....a tongue-in-cheek game.
