My recording is only 58 minutes and this show is usually over an hour, so I guess I will miss the ending. Have they always showed Jaclyn taking off her ring at the decision ceremony.
Shawniece & Jephte
How many times is Shawniece going to say the word “giftcards” to justify spending money on lingerie? Then we find out that Jephte had already told her he’s not into lingerie. Then she wants to talk about his fantasies. Clearly this is this weeks assignment. Shawniece’s fantasy is that her husband surprises her with three dozen roses and takes he to dinner. How is he going to afford dinner after buying three dozen roses? Jephte says he doesn’t have fantasies. Shawniece suggests they buy a stripper pole. Jephte wants a gold one.
Shawniece dresses up as a sexy fire fighter and shows off her rusty stripper poles skills. Jephte is sort of relieved that his wife is not a great stripper. It ends with Jephte taking his wife to the bedroom and closing the door. On the next day, Jephte surprises Shawniece with three dozen roses and takes her rollerskating. For the record, three dozen roses or some over the top expensive arrangement usually comes when they are apologizing for something. Shawniece says she grew up at the skating rink so it was the perfect date. Don’t make fun of me, but the Shawniece on this show is not the same Shawniece that is on ANTM right? Right. Just checking.
Jaclyn & Ryan
Ryan takes Jaclyn on a boat out on the lake with another couple. Ryan talks about wanting to build a log cabin on the lake. It didn’t seem that serious to me. It was like a”It would be nice to move to Paris.” kind of thing. Jaclyn talks to the other girl on the boat about Jaclyn’s busy work schedule. He has two jobs and two time consuming hobbies, paint balling and video games.
Later, Jaclyn talks to Ryan about his super busy lifestyle. She says he doesn’t want to change that too much. He is building a good work ethic, he says. I say it is too early in this process for him to make radical job changes.
Ryan brings Jaclyn home from a date and carries her over the threshold and all the way down a path of roses and candles to the bed with a heart-shaped rose petal design and some champagne. He leaves her on the bed sipping champagne and returns in his construction worker outfit.
Molly and Jon
These to meet to go bowling with Shawniece and Jephte. This is weird bowling. Jephte tells us he really hates to lose. That is a huge red flag with people I date. Molly is still trying to pretend like she ever plans to be intimate with Jon. Molly plans to get a red wig to surprise Jon with. This seems like taunting Jon to me. He is already attracted to her. She’s the one that needs him to go buy a club and a loincloth or something.
In an attempt to romance Molly, Jon has put on a suit and made a romantic dinner with wine. It seems that food and wine with her hot husband might be her love language. Molly changes into a red wig and becomes Rebecca a British girl. Jon graps “Rebecca” in a fireman carry and throws her on the bed. Later, we get an interview with Jon who is pissed that Molly just yawned and said she just wanted to go to bed. He’s furious that he is being led on by her. She says she just isn’t physically attracted to him. She asks him what she is supposed to do. Does she want to just quit? Because she wants to become attracted over time. They need to bring that one married couple in that is still married even thought she was not attracted to him at all in any way. They need that couple RIGHT NOW.
Then Jon repeats a story she clearly told him off camera about her and her friend going to a bar and picking up a guy for a three-way when she was in college. She’s the furious one now. She tells him she is done and she doesn’t want to be with him.
The counselors should have stepped in weeks ago and pointed out things like women become attracted to the man the fall in love with and men fall in love with the women they are attracted to. I’ve dated guys that I was not initially attracted to and once I was hooked on them, I found the to be very attractive. Why are these two not getting support from the counselors?
