It’s been a while since I’ve done a MAFS recap and we are only up to the couples first night together. It’s going to be a loooooong season. Also, I have been completely spoiled on the entire season. Someone close to the show sent me everything. The email had a disclaimer before the spoilers saying “don’t read if you don’t want to know.” That was very considerate. I made it thirteen entire hours before I caved. I won’t give anything away though, don’t worry. After meeting with the in-laws, all the couples head to Panama for their honeymoon. I am excited about this as this is one of the countries on my short list for relocation. They actually use the US dollar as currency!
Meka & Michael
I like this couple. Michael seems thrilled with Meka. He was embarrassed to help get her out of her wedding gown. Meka seems to be happy as well. She does very well with his family. Michael admits to Meka’s family that he has cheated. He says it was emotional cheating. I think he did cheat. Michael asked Meka what his family said. He seems worried about it.
When all the couples arrive at the honeymoon resort, the other couples all comment on how Meka and Michael don’t seem to be getting along at all. In fact, it seems like these two may already be fighting. That’s not a good sign. Have we ever had a couple that was not happy arriving to the honeymoon destination?
Oh wow. Meka does an interview from the hotel room right away. Michael told Meka that she has to have sex with him on the honeymoon or he is calling the whole thing off. WOW. You picked the wrong one Michael. Meka don’t play that. Meka says that Michael is a whole different person when the cameras aren’t around. Girl, you need to just go book your own room, fly back with the group and then run like the wind away from this one. Meka says she was worried she was matched with the TV version of Michael and married the real Michael. Michael is denying he gave Meka an ultimatum. Michael decides to get his own room for the night.
Jessica & Austen
Jessica and Austen are both weird. Austen was uncomfortable meeting Jessica’s twin and her husband. Austen’s mom grills the woman who stole her baby boy. I am surprised she did not show up at the hotel to sleep in between these two.
This is the couple I thought least likely to work out. Oddly, they may be the best matched of the five couples this season. HOLY SHIT! There is a GIANT LIZARD in their hotel room in Panama! I am having flashback to my lizard trauma! These two can’t stop giggling. I would be checking out.
Mindy & Zach
Zach is hot, but…his gentleman routine seems phony to me. We shall see how long this lasts. Mindy’s friends grill Zach and immediately suggest that he is on the show to advance his modeling and fitness career. Her friends also seem to think he is not really genuine.
Zach’s gentleman routine stopped before they even have one night in Panama. So That would be day two of the marriage. I thought it would last about a week. Mindy is comparing herself to the other couples and coming up a bit short. Well, except for Meka and Michael who are basically ready to divorce. Ooops! I spoke too soon. Mindy is now wandering the halls of the hotel in her pajamas because she doesn’t want to be in a room with Zach. Apparently, he told her off camera that he was not attracted to her and asked her what she wanted him to do about that.
Katie & Derek
Katie seems a bit whorish. Twenty-four hours ago she wasn’t sure if she wanted to go back with her ex. Then, on her first night with her husband, all she talks about is the bowl of condoms provided by the show. Derek took Katie’s dad aside and asked him for her hand in marriage. I think Derek is a player.
These two are having a lot of fun. They are excited about their fancy hotel room. Literally, all Katie talks about is sex. Someone needs to tell Derek that Panama is not an island.
Taylor & Brandon
First of all, Taylor needs to never wear makeup ever again in her life. She is stunningly beautiful first thing in the morning. Like, breathtaking. That should be illegal. Why does Taylor need this show. She may not be here for the right reasons. Brandon’s family is thrilled with Taylor. Taylor’s family is a bit more concerned. Brandon isn’t holding up well under interrogation.
Taylor and Brandon seem like a good match. They are a really cute couple. Perhaps too cute. The previews for next week show problems for these two also. This season is a total shit show. I am starting to think that is what production wanted for this season.
