I really wish more people were watching this show! I just noticed that my MAFS Australia recaps are not getting much feedback. Y’all are missing a really good show! And we get to see all of Australia. This episode we are going to see where the grooms live. It’s a four day homestay trip.
Lizzie & Sebastian
Lizzie is going to the airport alone? Where is she going? She is hurt that Seb criticized her unhealthy eating habits. He’s a personal trainer I think. I didn’t see Lizzie first season, but I am starting to think she didn’t need another season. She’s very dramatic. Eventually, they arrive at Seb’s place. It’s quite nice. Seb feels bad when Lizzie explains how his comments made her feel judged and bad about herself. He apologizes. They kiss and makeup. Later they go “ice skating” with a walker.
Cathy & Josh
Cathy is supposedly sick. However, after the commitment ceremony apparently she went out without her husband and stayed out until 2 am. This obviously caused a huge fight. Cathy cries during an interview because at the last commitment ceremony, where they both chose to stay, Josh said that it feels to him like they are stuck in the friend zone. Her behavior makes it seem like they are not even friends anymore. She thought things were fine. She was blindsided by Josh’s comments about being more like friends. Cathy has strange eyebrows. What? I’m just saying. She seems really into Josh and it is heartbreaking to watch her be so sad. She feels rejected and just wants to get the rejection over with. Eventually, Josh apologizes and they hug it out and head to his place in New Castle.
Josh has had a Christmas tree up in his apartment for two years. I’m okay with that. I do have trouble understanding Josh though. Cathy takes it in stride as well. Josh takes Cathy on a motorcycle ride to the beach. I’m going to have to figure out how to get to Australia with the shortest flights possible. You know, if WE ARE EVER ALLOWED INTO OTHER COUNTRIES AGAIN! Cathy is nervous that Josh will bring up issues she is not aware of at dinner with his family. He says there is nothing. I get the feeling there will be. Especially since Josh’s mother is kind of a bitch. Josh tells his mom that he and Cathy are very different. He’s a mama’s boy and not supporting Cathy. Instead he gives his mommy a whole list of things he doesn’t like about Cathy. She should leave. Wow, Josh is a dick. I really liked him too. It’s sad.
Stacey & Michael
Stacey finally gets to see just how rich Michael is. His house is amazing. But she is critical about his bachelor pad. Um, he was living the bachelor life! In his private theater, she refuses to sit next to him because the two center seats are worn from him watching movies with his conquests. She is so ridiculous. They are both obnoxious. She’s ready to move her kids in though. Micheal wants to go swimming but Stacey didn’t bring a swimsuit. So he offers her a random female swimsuit he has laying around. So she goes swimming in his clothes.
KC & Drew
Drew lives in Cairns. I want to live in Cairns. KC is already complaining about the heat. Why are they walking down the street with their luggage? Oh I forgot this is the guy with a roommate who has been conveniently removed from the home by production. But the ginormous stuffed animal collection is still there. WTF is really going on here? Maybe the housemate is a kid?
These two seem to be very attracted to each other. Drew is hot. And they have very romantic dates. They seem very happy together. COULD IT BE? Well, except for the whole stuffed animal thing. I think this is just production looking or problems. But when Drew goes out, this fool starts THROWING AWAY his things! That would be the end for me if I were Drew. He comes in and catches her in the act. It’s not just the stuffed animals but some of his clothes as well! I can’t stand KC. It’s becoming a pattern for me that I am always on the guy’s side. Bitches are evil!
Connie & Jonethen
Jon lives on the beach. I would love to live there. These two go skateboarding near the water. It’s Connie’s first time. Jon is sort of an asshole. I love Connie. She is really trying to please him when she shouldn’t have to. Connie is great. I hate that she is so hopeful about her future with Jon. The writing is on the wall, sweetie. Jon is making dinner for Connie and his friend. This is just not fun to watch. Tyler seems like a douche.
How much more must Connie endure? Apparently, she has to attend a BBQ with Jon’s friends. Connie needs to have more confidence. This relationship is not up to Jon. It’s her decision. She gets on well with his friends. Things went reasonably well. The friends seem to approve. I hope this will work. But, I don’t have any faith about it. This is the only couple really where I am on the female side. I love Connie! These two go to the beach for the day and seem to be back on track. Don’t fuck this up, Jon. These two have not had sex. And Connie wants to and he doesn’t. Le sigh. Jon is such a douche. I mean I get he is not down with it. But my heart breaks for Connie.
Aleks & Ivan
Ivan lives in Sydney so they didn’t have to travel. Ivan is a real estate agent who does quite well for himself. At least to hear him tell it. His apartment is NOT luxurious as he suggested. There are folding chairs and everything is very sparse. Ivan seems to think he lives in a palace. He’s delusional. Then things go from bad to worse. Are there rednecks in Australia because this car racing shit happens regularly in my ghetto. I thought he was rich? Aleks is not impressed either. I just realized it is Friday night and the hood is ODDLY quiet.
Ivan thinks that taking Aleks to see his listings would be fun. Really? Aleks is unmoved. She feels like they are going back to work. Did he just call her “his little assistant?” Are they really going to do an open house? Yes, yes they are. He went from treating her like a queen to literally calling her his assistant. Also, if he is so rich, why does he drive a Volkswagen. Not that there is anything wrong with a Volkswagen. It’s just he acts like he is rich and clearly, he is not. Aleks seems over Ivan too. She doesn’t want to live in Sydney. She is not really interested in being with him forever. BOOM. I agree with Aleks. Ivan is clueless. Aleks is going to break Ivan’s heart.
Mishel & Steve
I don’t think these two have even shared a bed yet. So going to Steve’s one bedroom flat is quite the challenge. He sleeps on the couch. This is never going to work. I am team Steve. Mishel has lost her voice. She says she may be allergic to Melbourne. Is it dry there? I used to go to Vegas back in the day and always lost my voice despite growing up in the Sahara. These two go to visit some of Steve’s friends. Steve tells his friends that he adores Mishel but he is not physically attracted to her. I don’t feel like it is her looks, but her mean personality. Steve’s friends of course stick up for Steve. Mischel leaves. I think Mishel is very pretty. It’s just a personality clash with these two.
Next week we have a very dramatic dinner party and commitment ceremony. Did Aleks cheat? What is going on here?
