"Honeymoon: Take 2": Guys' Fashion Sense Tested

"The Early Show" was at the midway point of the "Honeymoon: Take 2" competition Wednesday, with four couples contending all week to get to go on a dream second honeymoon to a tropical paradise in the Bahamas.

Couples from all over the country sent us essays explaining why they should be chosen to compete for the romantic trip.

The fun began Monday with "the final four" taking part in a game show-style challenge revolving around their knowledge of their spouses.

Special Section: "Honeymoon: Take 2"

It left Erica Westbrook and Darryl Willie, of Oakland, and Kris and David Odekirk, from Layton, Utah in the lead, with two points each, Amber and Nick Nunn, of Shreveport, La. with one point, and Charlotte and Henry Dorsey, from Mays Landing, N.J. pulling up the rear, without any points.

On Tuesday, the couples sang duets of popular love songs they'd chosen, with Paul Shaffer, Musical Director of the "Late Show with David Letterman," offering advice and critiques - and viewers voting, as they are getting to do all week, for their favorites.

Amber and Nick came out on top in Tuesday's voting, earning the maximum four points, Erica and Darryl were close behind with three, followed by Charlotte and Henry with two and Kris and David, who finished with one point.

So after two days, the Leaders Board has Erica and Darryl and Amber and Nick tied at the top with 5 points each. Kris and David have three, while Charlotte and Henry are hanging in with two.

With two days of competition left, anything could happen -- and the stakes are certainly high: The winning couple will stay 6 days and 5 nights at the exclusive private island resort Musha Cay and the Islands of Copperfield Bay. They'll have access to the resort's 11 private islands, 40 beaches, a private chef and a staff of thirty.

After the show Tuesday, we sent the four husbands out on a shopping spree -- for their wives! With $400 and a one-hour time limit, they headed to the famous Macy's department store in Herald Square to outfit their ladies, from head to toe.

And on Wednesday, the couples put on a fashion show, with the wives modeling the outfits their husbands bought.


Two celebrity judges were on-hand: international supermodel Paulina Porizkova, who's graced the covers of magazines for more than two decades, and Clinton Kelly, host of TLC's "What Not to Wear" and author of "Oh, No She Didn't: The Top 100 Style Mistakes Women Make and How to Avoid Them." Paulina judged the wives' modeling ability based on their walks down the catwalk, and Clinton commented on the husbands' sense of style, based on what he saw on the runway.

As each wife walked the runway, each husband described what he bought and why. Each was asked to guess how much he'd actually spent, then given the actual number.

Remember -- the four couples are relying on you to send them on a second honeymoon. There are two more days of competition, and our viewers will ultimately decide who gets to go on the dream vacation.
