Episode 6: Bravotv.com's Assistant Editor counts down this week's top three moments.

No. 3 Voted Off the Island

Well it looks like we'll be getting a lot more Jett the rest of the season given the recent turn of events, and I'm pretty stoked. We haven't seen nearly enough of everyone's favorite rocker dad/house assistant. Jett's totally that under-the-radar guy who's calm and level-headed yet is still down for a good JLD prank or a dirty martini.

However while I'm thrilled he avoided being handed a pink slip (haha!), the moment when Jeff basically tells Jett that Gage voted for him to be laid off was pretty awkward (and that's quite a feat at JLD). As relieved as Jett might feel that he wasn't let go, he must have been simmering with some serious resentment towards Gage, with whom he's now going to have to work closely. That is just rough for both parties. Jeff really might want to look into some team building exercises (though he probably shouldn't start with trust falls). 

No. 2 Gotcha!

What's the best way to welcome back an employee who's been recovering from surgery for weeks? Play a prank on her! It's the JLD way. As if it wasn't bad enough that Jeff kept giving Zoila a hard time about coming back to work because he thought Lupe the temporary maid was doing a better job, he decided to trick her with a fake coffee spill. Jeff had one of those little gag cups that look like something spilled. The kind you got at Gadgets and Gizmos (remember that store?) at your local mall in the '90s. And although I enjoyed being transported back to my childhood mall experiences, I did not enjoy seeing Zoila toyed with on her first day back. But she was a good sport, and I think she appreciates a good prank.

No. 1 Without a Trace

Wow, no one saw this coming, not even Jeff. Star pupil and Jeff Lewis apprentice, Trace, was sent packing for doing some extracurricular designing on Jeff's dime. In a true cautionary tale about keeping your work email strictly about work (maybe JLD suffers from not having those mandatory HR videos that you have to sit through during your first week at a new job), Trace gets busted when Gage and Jeff have to go into his email to check something. Jeff Lewis rage ensues. (PS: That was a serious closet Trace was desinging for himself! How big is his apartment?)

When Jeff called Trace in for his impromptu review, I figured he would get chewed out and slapped with a stern warning. But Jeff went right in for the kill and sent him packing. It all seemed so sudden! In the end Jeff has to do what he thinks is best for his business, but still, we'll miss Trace. Who could forget his little short shorts or the time a client slapped him? Memories...

Next week Stacey reveals that she's been helping Sarah with her resume, and let's just say Jeff isn't too pleased. Oh, and Stacey's now rocking a long, blond wig. 

Jenni: "Crab Meat is Flying!"

Jenni dishes on the Lewis family food fight and the session with Dr. Donna.
