Today's episode showcases the acting scenes for four of the loveteams.
First, the team of Andrea&Dominic, Pauleen&Gian, and JE perform a scene from Lovers in Paris. Andrea and Dominic take the lead roles as Vivian and Carlo, while Pauleen and Gian are supporting roles as Carlo's parents. JE plays the role of a butler.
Pauleen says she's sure JE is going to mess up the scene. She really wanted to be Vivian, but she said she still wanted a way to give the scene a touch of Pauleen.
Mr. Qpido watches from behind the scenes as the pairs act out the scene. Pauleen brings on the comedy as she dramatizes Vivian's mom.
JE tries to mess up the scene as he feeds Pauleen and Gian gets a little annoyed. Luis notes in his voiceover that Andrea is having a hard time. Mr. Qpido comes out to critique Dominic's performance by comparing him to his dad. But, Dominic says that, standing alone, he knows he's good. Take after take comes as the group perfects their performance.
In another take, JE tries again to mess up the scene as he stands closer to Pauleen. Gian gets more annoyed and tells JE to stay away, and plays his frustration into the role by asking Pauleen where the shotgun is.
JE says he doesn't know if he went too far and that he didn't expect Gian's reaction to be so violent. He presents a bottle of wine in the scene, and Gian says they didn't ask for anything. Then, he and Gian exchange a high-five, just as JE kisses Pauleen on the shoulder and hurries away.
Gian wipes her shoulder and runs after JE. Then Pauleen follows to try and resolve the situation. It seems that Gian and JE had a little tussle, and finally Mikel pulls JE away.
Finally, the group finishes their scene by acting out the dancing part of the scene without incident.
JE had a final bit and asked to dance with Pauleen as Gian sat and watched. He and Gian shake hands as JE promises not to do any of this again. Gian tells him to apologize to Pauleen for disrespecting her.
Next, the team of Hazel&Mhyco, Karel&Gabb, and special guest Joseph Bitangcol perform a scene from Meteor Garden. Hazel and Mhyco take the lead as Shan Cai and Dao Ming Si, while Karel and Gabb play the parents of Shan Cai. Joseph plays the best friend of Shan Cai, Ching Hu.
Karel has returned from another commitment to tape her scene. Mhyco was also able to return from his dance rehearsal.
During one of the scene breaks, Mhyco looks at the real food props and picks up a piece of spicy wasabi. Hazel tells him it's yummy and he eats it. He spits it out in disgust as everyone laughs really hard at him.
Mhyco said that he saw the green thing and said it looked like a soft yummy piece of bubble gum. But when he ate it, smoke came out of his nose. Hazel laughs and says she was sorry because she didn't think he would actually eat it. Karel continues to practice her pan-hitting and Gabb eats up the food.
Then Joseph comes in for his part and kisses Hazel and Karel on the cheek. Joseph says that he didn't really talk to them after he tried to annoy them and he wasn't sure how seriously they took his behavior. But he says Hazel is okay and she's still nice. Mhyco eyes Joseph but Joseph says he's Shan Cai's type and it's okay to visit.
Direk Lauren comes out at one point to remind Mhyco that he's not portraying Robin Padilla. During their interview, Hazel said that Mr. Qpido told them their acting wasn't enough but that there was a certain kilig factor there by the way they looked at each other.
Karel and Gabb said they did their best, and hope that they get to be in the Red Heart zone now.
Finally, just before the show ends, Mhyco in his interview expresses his frustration at Joseph getting to kiss Hazel twice, when he hardly ever gets a chance to kiss her. He manages to sneak in a couple of kisses on Hazel's cheek and rejoices.
The episode ended with a sneak peak into tomorrow's Romantic Comedy Loventures with Carlo, Vanessa, Jill, and Alwyn.
