The competition is heating up!
With the introductions officially out of the way, it was time for Travis Kelce to get down to business and start the dating game on tonight's episode of Catching Kelce.
First, Travis headed over to the ladies' mansion to enjoy a barbecue and learn more about them because afterward he had to choose one girl to go on a group date. He ended up inviting Kentucky native Maya because her confidence and poise had jumped out at him from the start.
Maya then had to choose five other girls to join her on the date, which was no easy task. The ladies quickly started sucking up and kissing butt to get a chance to spend more time with Travis, but Maya devised her own strategy to get a leg up.
"There are girls in this house that I feel like are B.B.B.s—bland, basic bitches," she told new BFF Lexi. "I feel like there's definitely girls here who have zero personality, zero style. I can't even name them off the top because I don't even know their names!"
Maya decided to bring Lexi as an ally, and then chose Lauren, Veronica, Jenny and Lolo because she felt they were "weak." But her tactic to only pick "basic, bland bitches" blew up in her face as soon as the date rolled around and she learned they would be filming a workout commercial with Travis.
"My whole strategy was to pick girls that wouldn't outshine me, and it's starting to backfire," she said. "Lauren owns a freaking gym. Lolo is a personal trainer and Veronica's really into fitness. This could backfire big time."
After cracking the group up with a hilarious Richard Simmons impersonation, Travis made an effort to get alone time with each of the six girls throughout the shoot because he secretly needed to pick one to join him for a solo VIP date later that night.
His conversation with Lolo turned extremely awkward as she grilled him on his fitness preferences to find out if he possessed any of her deal breakers.
Then, Jenny used her precious time with Travis to deliver a handwritten love letter from Anika, who was devastated she hadn't been chosen for the date.
Much to Maya's dismay, Lauren ended up having the biggest physical connection with Travis during the date after she challenged him to a game of one-on-one basketball. Travis raised the stakes and promised her a kiss if she was able to score on him.
Travis definitely showed no mercy, but after several blocked attempts, Lauren was able to score. Travis kept his word and puckered up, but the other girls were pissed.
Despite Lauren's smooch session with Travis, he ended up taking Veronica on the VIP date because she impressed him during the shoot. Meanwhile, all hell broke loose back at the mansion when Maya returned and confronted Anika for sending Travis a personal note and overshadowing her moment.
"You were the same person that came into my room and said, 'Oh, Maya, if you take me out on this date I swear I'm not going to do anything to try to outshine you,'" Maya recalls. "You can't proclaim that you're a real-ass person. Clearly, you're not. It's obvious that you're a fake bitch." Yikes!
After the dust settled from that blowup, it was time for Travis to send three more ladies back home in elimination. The six women on the chopping block were V Rich, Jamie Leigh, Jessica, Lolo, Jenny and Anika.
Despite his concerns with Anika's quirky behavior, Travis decided to take a risk and keep her around. He then sent Jenny home because he couldn't see them working as a couple.
Lolo then decided to speak up and make a case for herself by asking Travis if he wanted the treat (her) or the tricks (the other girls). Her dig didn't go over well with Travis, who asked her to go home because she showed too many red flags. Oops!
But there was still one more girl that needed to go. Travis ultimately dismissed Jessica and saved Jamie Leigh and V Rich. Back at the house, Maya was not thrilled to see Anika return.
"I guess it's just another day that I'm going to have to see Anika's ugly self and put up with her bulls--t," she said. "But I know that Travis will see through her lies and see how insincere she is and I know that she'll go home."
