I just fell over exhausted for like no reason. I can’t keep my eyes open. And I even took my B vitamins today that always make me feel speedy. I blame the heat combined with the beer. Nontheless, I’d really like to watch this show and that means I need to do a MAFS Recap. I just have to know how Bennett and Amelia are doing. It’s a two hour episode so hopefully we get to the honeymoons. Oh, I forgot about all the meet the family stuff.
Amelia & Bennett
These two are adorable. Amelia is already wanting to consummate the marriage and she isn’t even out of her dress yet. Amelia keeps calling Bennett’s sleep shirt a dress. She thinks it’s great. The two nerds swap glasses to see who is the blindest. This is just so cute. Can this whole show just be these two?
Bennett goes to breakfast with Amelia’s mom and brother. She is thrilled with the match. Amelia doesn’t know where her medical residency will be. NOLA is her first choice (and she will probably get that pretty easy) but there are other far away places she could be sent. Bennett seems unaware of this possibility. Amelia’s brother Noah seems like a brooder unlike the rest of her family who is kind of kooky. Oh he just spoke up and is kind of fun too. Amelia meets Bennett’s family and his mother is even kookier that Amelia. Bennett’s sister gives Amelia a tootsie pop as a wedding gift. She tells Amelia that Bennett only wants to adopt kids. This is a problem. Later, Bennett confirms with Amelia that having children is not ethical. Ouch.
Olivia & Brett
Poor Olivia. She has such a positive outlooks about her marriage. She hasn’t really gotten to know Brett yet. All the newlyweds are being sent to lunch alone with the in-laws. That sounds terrifying. Olivia goes to brunch with Brett’s brothers. Brett meets with Olivia’s family who are super religious. Brett announces he is agnostic. Olivia’s mother says that her daughter’s pet peeve is rude people. Well, she just married the rudest guy in town.
Christina & Henry
These two are super awkward. They seem afraid to change out of the wedding clothes. Christina seems… judgey without saying a word. Christina thinks that Henry has nice female friends. His female friends are totally unsupportive bitches. One of them is Trishelle from Real World Las Vegas. Christina is a traveler. It doesn’t sound like Henry is.
When Christina arrives to brunch with Henry’s family I am shocked. I was expecting a buttoned up family. They are very down to earth regular cajun family. Henry has never traveled outside of the country. I also find that surprising. When Henry met Christina’s family he was super quiet. They pointed out that Christina prefers a lot of communication. >Mmmhmmm” Henry grunted.
Amani & Woody
Woody is best friends with Miles. Miles has unfortunately married Karen. She’s not worthy. Woody dropped by to check on Miles before taking his bride to bed. I appreciate Woody for knowing that it is his job to sleep closest to the door. You’d be surprised how many guys don’t know that. Woody is great and seems very pleased with his new wife. He is a smacker though. Amani is going to have to straighten that shit right out. Amani is very pleased with Woody too.
Amani meets with Woody’s family and there is some sort of disagreement over Woody’s temperament. His mother says that Woody can have an explosive temper at times. Woody let’s it slip in his meeting with Amani’s family that his longest previous relationship was three years and they both cheated.
Karen & Miles
Karen wakes up the day after the wedding feeling sick. She’s lost her voice. Miles goes to lunch with Karen’s family. Karen’s dad did not want to film. Karen’s mom does not look happy. I really with they would have paired Miles up with someone else. He seems like a good guy. Miles wins Karen’s mom over really quickly. He’s quite the charmer.
Karen goes to brunch with Miles family. Maybe Karen will turn out to be alright. Miles mother asks how she feels about “submission.” She prefers for the husband to be the head of the family. This match seems like a really good match. I’m warming to Karen. Miles mother might be a problem though.
Off To Mexico!
All the couples meet up at the airport to head off to Mexico together. They are staying at a gorgeous all inclusive resort in Cancun. It a really magical place. Henry is kind of a dud. Christina is disappointed that Henry isn’t more excited to explore Mexico. A traveler and a non-traveler never work out well. Miles and Karen seem to be getting along very well in Mexico. I’m happy that Karen is being good to Miles. Miles loves that Karen eats. They are a cute couple. Woody has me a little worried. What was that monologue at the end of the show from him all about?
