So I wasn't able to do a wrap-up on episode #2 of From G's to Gents. I had watched the show and jotted down a few notes, but I just never got around to writing about it. But just as a quick synopsis, Zenel and Mike P were eliminated. Mr. Bentley revoked Mike P's membership into the club because he wasn't a "true G." He has a 4-bedroom house, a car and a motorcycle. Dude is ballin'! Zenel got the boot because between him and Kesan, Mr. Bentley felt that Kesan wanted to be there more.
In episode #3, the G's learn sportsmanship while playing cricket. Their polos and sweater vests were hilarious by the way. They then had to apply the etiquette that they learned during cricket in 5-on-5 street ball against some goons. Splitting into two teams, the goal of the competition was to score the most points against the trash-talking street ballers. The only caveat was that there was an "etiquette referee" who would subtract a point if they cursed, argued with the regular ref or played "too aggressively."
That's when things got interesting. Right from the start, we learn that Cee is a master manipulator. And in episode #2 we saw how far he'd go, X-ing out his own picture in order to set Kesan up. He once again riled up the wolves telling them that Kesan spit in D-Boy's bed back when they had the fight (even after Kesan had already apologized for it). D-Boy of course gets all excited about it and wants to confront Kesan about it. But instead of getting into an almost guaranteed physical altercation, Kesan decides to just pack his bags and dip. He ends up deciding to stay after some convincing from Creepa (sans "hater blockers"), Shaun, and Mr. Bentley.
calls up his ex-girlfriend crying saying that he can't change and even admitted to some of the dudes that he X-ed out his own picture to set up Kesan. Maybe he's finally turning a new leaf? We'll see...
Cee, D-Boy, and J Boogie were up on the chopping block at the end of the show. Mr. Bentley gives Cee another chance because he believes Cee wants to make a change. In the end, Mr. Bentley kicked J Boogie out of the gentlemen's club, saying that he really didn't need to be there (a.k.a. "not a real G"). Having a job in a clinical laboratory pretty much excluded him from G status. Even when he was being G-checked, he really didn't have any defense. He just said that he was going to work really hard to better himself.
My question about him and Mike P is that if they weren't "real G's," why were they even on the show? What was the screening process? I don't really think that any of the cast members are "real G's" but these two were definitely not. It turns out that the show isn't half-bad. It's actually better than I expected. The only thing now that'd keep me from watching the rest of the season is whether or not I have the time. But I think now going forward, Mr. Bentley's going to have to make some tough decisions for the eliminations.
