I just realized that they gave us two episodes of this show last week and it is already time for another one. So I am going to watch these really fast. Then tonight I will recap RHOBH and hopefully get to the Decision Night episode of Married at First Sight. It’s like two and a half hours long so I am not sure if I can do four hours of recapping tonight or not. I’m still battling my way out of “the hole.”
The first episode sends all the couples to Las Vegas. This is the fifth city of an eight city challenge so tonight’s episode that doesn’t air until like 11:30 might be the finale! The second episode sends everyone to Seattle and the families show up!
Alma and Michael
Michael goes to the Vegas four times a year. He is a big partier. Alma is not amused. These two have been given $500 each to gamble with and must double their money to earn the fancy room. They have a time limit. This isn’t going to be easy. Alma hates gambling and she’s making a huge deal out of it. She’s never gambled before and she is telling him how to gamble. It’s annoying me and I am not even there. Somehow the manage to double their money.
These two go to Chicago to see Alma’s mother who fell and got a concussion. The home visit went very well. We did not get to meet Michael’s family.
Jenna and Cale
The challenge is to spray paint a car with trigger words. They are essentially having a fight via spray painting. Quickly they turned things around and ended up opening up about past relationships and how those relationships changed how they interact with others.
The next night is Cale’s 30th birthday. They go to a nice dinner. They had some sort of trapeze date earlier in the day and they both realized they have trust issues and are used to being self-reliant. Jenna gave Cale the crystal from Sedona and Cale cries. It was a very touching moment.
In Seattle, Jenna’s mom and sister love Cale. Cale’s mom and sister love Jenna. This bunch goes on a very rough boat ride. Cale’s mom gets sick and Cale offers her no comfort. That’s odd. They manage to complete their boating challenge despite the bad weather.
Stephanie and Michael
These two are grabbed by a crazy man in a crazy truck that says Adventure Combat Ops! Apparently, they have to hunt for zombies. Stephanie is terrified. They have to find a case and open it without getting killed by zombies. Somehow they found the case really fast.
These two have to shop for each other in Pike’s Market. It was cute and the families decided if they were able to choose the right things so of course they won. Michael’s sister and Stephanie’s mother were not there to make the decisions any easier though. Stephanie’s mother and sister both really like Michael. Michael’s sister on the other hand sees that they might clash. I saw that at first two, but now I think they are great together.
Stephanie and Ryan
This is going to be another bad leg for these two. Their challenge is at a place called Club Domina where they have to give a tantalizing performance to earn their suite. It’s a male stripper show. The male strippers show Ryan how to give a proper lap dance. Ryan is already irritated by how into this Stephanie is. Ryan is actually pretty good at the lap dance. They win the challenge and two tickets to the show later that night. At the show Ryan is pissed that Stephanie is not paying attention to him and is getting tons of lap dances. Pretty raunchy lap dances. One of the strippers even has Ryan hold her drink while he grinded on her. Nope. That would be the end of the relationship for anyone I am interested in dating. There were four lap dances and then Stephanie was literally in the show. Ryan left. I don’t blame him. He should have driven to the airport and hopped a plane home. Instead he waits for her outside and she is pissed at him because he won’t speak to her. Stephanie seems to have no remorse for her behavior. She has not apologized. Instead she talks about great moral character. Really, girl? It’s still all about you? Perhaps seeing herself on TV might give her a clue.
In Seattle, Ryan is still not talking to Stephanie. Their challenge is to drive rally cars through a course. Both of their parents are there. Stephanie says,”I think the only way Ryan could blow it with my parents is if they pick up on a judgement toward her.” Is her father going to be okay with her Vegas behavior? We’re all judging you Stephanie. Your behavior was extremely disrespectful to a man you seem to want to marry. Huge red flag on you. HUGE. They failed the car challenge.
Listening to Stephanie tell her parents about Vegas was ridiculous. Of course her parents believe her. Stephanie still thinks she has a decision to make. Nope. That decision was made in Vegas. By Ryan.
I think Stephanie and Michael are the only one with a shot.
