drama teacher and I'm going to audition each of you for my private class, Bachelor number one and you're a dirty old man. Take it, come on over here. Oh, we had to go out when I say I got full body chills watching that. Like no lie. Rodney was bachelor number one and he actually won. But the woman that he was trying to win a date with decided not to go out with him, she actually talked to the sunday Telegraph in 2012 and tells him that she got just this bad feeling about Rodney backstage, so she never went on the date and honestly, that may have saved her life. Yeah, I mean we say it all the time. Like trust your gut, trust your instincts. I mean, be weird, be rude, stay alive and don't go on dates, creepy guys on game shows. Exactly, Okay. But like what was the point of bringing this in his evidence? Like did you just want to show the jury that he was on a game show? I mean I think that very well could have been part of it, but the point that Rodney was really trying to make with the clip is he points himself out in the video and claims that you can see that he's wearing gold earrings, just like the ones police found in his storage locker, And he's basically saying like it's the earrings that they linked to Robin, and he's like, no, these are my rings, I obviously had them the whole time, and according to him, he says this proves that police are wrong and that those aren't Robbins earrings, they're his now, according to actor Jed Mills who was on Seinfeld back in the nineties, this is related, I promised to stay with me, he talked to CNN back in March of 2010 because he was a contestant on that same episode of the dating game and he swears that he never saw Rodney wearing earrings. And he also adds that he got just this majorly uncomfortable vibe from Rodney, who he described as definitely creepy, even though he was perfectly charming on stage. And to me this is such a great demonstration of how a killer like this can just flip the switch off and on, you know, like one minute of the best person in the world, the next they're real depravity is showing and it's like a totally different person. And this is exactly what the jury is saying to. There's Rodney charming as can be on screen while his crimes are laid out in all of their awful detail. The jury sees it cool clearly, and Rodney is once again found guilty of capital murder in California, convicted of killing five innocent women and girls. And in a surprising twist, after his conviction at his sentencing hearing a grown tally, Shapiro, herself, Romney's first known victim who barely survived his assault, testifies and then to combat it or compound on top of it. I'm not even sure.
