Filling in for Brooke tonight on the recap, and -- wouldn't you know it? -- it's Tar Heel homeboy Clay Aiken's star turn as project manager this week. Even though he will tell us repeatedly throughout the episode that he's "not a party person," Clay steps up to lead the men's team in ... planning a party for a new flavor of mock cocktails from Crystal Light.
His competition on the women's team is Aubrey O'Day -- she of the burnt orange hair piled atop her head like a Whoville denizen from that live-action Grinch movie. And guess what? Aubrey informs us she knows how to party, seeing as how she was once in Diddy's entourage AND was a sorority girl. Clay notes that Aubrey has been a party girl since she popped out of her mother's -- Wait, WHAT did he say? (Clay, please. This is a family recap.)
The men's team's Crystal Light flavor is peach bellini, so they come up with a beach-themed party with the tagline: "Life's a peach." Things generally go smoothly, though when Ivanka Trump shows up to check in, Dee Snider talks a little smack about Penn Jillette (who fought so memorably with Clay last week.)
Even though the drinks are allegedly nonalcoholic, the men's event has all the basics of a spring break frat party -- bikinis, limbo contests, lots of sand, tats, Kathie Lee and Hoda. (OK, there must be some real alcohol there somewhere.) Lots of Claymates show up, and Clay, above with Arsenio Hall, does a version of "Under the Boardwalk."
