Finally ready for this MAFS Australia Recap! It looks like Michael is going to be a pain in the ass and cause trouble again. Shocker! The homestays last week didn’t really go that well for anyone. Today didn’t go that well for me as I drank too much wine last night and didn’t eat anything all day yesterday. This resulted in a day full of panic attacks and random anxiety. Must do better.
Seb and Lizzie are the first to arrive and decide to hide from everyone. These too look like they are doing great. This makes me wonder if I have the names wrong. The horrible pair of Stacey and Michael show up next. Michael is too big for his britches. I mean literally. He’s leaving nothing to the imagination. And it’s not impressive. Everyone seems uncharacteristically happy. Except for Aleks who it seems is done with Ivan after he treated her like his little assistant last week. Ivan doesn’t see this coming. Josh arrives solo. If I recall correctly, Josh and Cathy had a really bad week. Steve and Mishel bring everyone teddy bears. Ivan is eating his feelings in the form of all snacks lying about. He looks like his is going to burst into tears.
Michael Continues To Be A Douchebag
Why is Michael always up in everyone’s business. He’s literally doing a confession on Ivan and Aleks sex life as if he was in the bed with them. Things are very comfortable at dinner when Aleks starts telling Lizzie that she’s just not that into Ivan. Then asshole Michael announces that Aleks said she slept with Ivan. Aleks denies it. So, perhaps bad sex or no sparks was the problem. Then Josh chimes in that he was told by both of them that they hooked up. Ivan says nothing and looks like he wants to crawl under the dinner table and die. Michael keeps pushing the subject. So Aleks walks out and Ivan goes trailing after her.
Now Cathy is sobbing over Josh. He’s not worth it. Mishel and Steve had a touching moment. Is there still hope there? Now Michael is saying that Aleks is dating another guy. Ivan knows about it, but he is still protecting Aleks. It’s hysterical, that Michael, the cheater is the one going hard on Aleks the cheater as if he has some sort of moral high ground. Despite multiple people being aware of Aleks behavior, she is still going to deny, deny, deny. Ivan is practically despondent. He refused to confirm or deny if he’s slept with Aleks. Josh says that Ivan told him that he and Aleks have been “rooting like rabbits for weeks.” Ivan still denies asking the guys to bring it up an defend him. Aleks publicly calls out Ivan for lying and says she is leaving. Aleks clearly knew she would be in the spotlight at dinner. So why did she wear that tacky Forever 21 pink dress made for someone in high school?
Ivan swears he did not set her up to be called out. Josh and Michael are not particularly trusted sources.
The Commitment Ceremony
Apparently, we are almost at the end of the season. I don’t really think any of them have a chance. Ivan and Aleks decided to just leave the experiment before the commitment ceremony. Instead, Steve and Mishel are up first. Steve says that Mishel is the most beautiful person inside and out. How did we get here? Micheal tells her that he loves her! I believe that everyone stays tonight except for Ivan and Aleks. Stacey is all ready to move in with the asshole. Is she kidding? She treated him like shit last week. Jon has never seemed into Connie. I love Connie. Jon? Not so much. At least he says he doesn’t want to give her false hope. Sigh. Jon wrote leave. That gives them another week though I think. He says he wanted her to write stay. He’s such a manipulator. Mishel calls Jon out. Up next, Lizzie and Seb are happy together. Despite his insults toward Lizzie. Seb apparently just found out about the eating disorder they are not addressing on camera.
The Toy Issue…
KC and Drew talk about this whole furry situation. It’s weird. If we don’t hear a reasonable explanation for this, she needs to run. Or he heeds to read 1 Cortintians 13:11. Something needs to change here. Drew thinks KC is materialistic. KC thinks he is childish. They should end it. Drew makes KC feel unlovable. She moves to the far end of the couch so he can’t touch her. They both choose to stay. Josh and Cathy are not speaking at the moment. They are our last couple. Josh likes to drag Cathy in public. They both vote to leave. I think that is for the best. Josh is not supportive of his wife in public.
