Finally ready for this MAFS recap. Things are sort of nuts in real life these days. But I am ready for what has become the Chris show. I hope we get more time with the other couples, especially the ones that have a chance at making it. Also, I am ready to get out of Las Vegas. I can’t believe it is only day four of marriage.
Girls Day & A Guys Day
They can’t even get through a honeymoon with out need to go out with the girls or out with the guys? I get that it is production but the couples needs as much couples time as possible at this point. It’s day FOUR! Nevertheless, the guys are off to learn how to shoot craps. The girls appear be learning how to make drinks. Erik tells the guys he is over the moon about Virginia. He says everything is perfect. The guys think Erik is drunk. Virgina’s review is not as glowing. She’s has issues with his stance on not being friends with guys. Plus they have different political views, he’s conservative and she’s more liberal. Haley is struggling with Jacob. Clara says Ryan is her perfect husband. Except for the part where he has never told anyone he loves them.
All the girls are worried about Paige. Paige says hopefully it can’t get any worse. Chris tells the guys that Paige is his priority. Chris gets pissy when Erik tells him he really needs to man up for Paige. Good GRIEF! Chris is an idiot.
Haley & Jacob
Haley tells Jacob that she is used to her freedom and she is not the clingy type. Jacob wants to know how much physical interaction she is comfortable with. He using hand holding as an example. She says she is “trying to get there. Oh they have already had sex. He feels like she hasn’t really warmed up to him since. Yikes! She’s not really communicating with him much.
On the very last night of the honeymoon, Haley tells Jacob she wants to have drinks with the other girls. He’s fine with it. Since dinner with everyone was a disaster, he never got to eat. So he goes down to grab a bite. Then he sees that everyone is downstairs husbands and wives. She lied to him because she didn’t want him there. That was hurtful. This marriage isn’t going to survive at this rate. I feel so sad for Jacob. That was a shit thing to do to him. Apparently, everyone bolted when they saw him. Who does that?
Paige & Chris
Chris tells Paige he appreciates the grace she has regarding their situation. He says it has not gone unnoticed. Is it me or does Chris mumble? I miss half of what he is saying. Apparently, he is not going to be willing to bond with her dog or help with his care. Chris is worried her dog will chew on his shoes. Then he tells her that he doesn’t believe in joint accounts. She thinks there should be one that the both contribute to for household expenses. He also claims he makes four times as much as she does. So fine. Let him pay for everything, I say.
As these two pack to head back home, Chris admits that he has considered going back to the pregnant ex. He has concerns about raising a child in two separate homes. He has been having conversations about this with the ex. Chris says that he still loves her. Oh, for fucksake. He doesn’t want another man raising his kid. Paige tells production she is done. Then she tells Chris she is done. Somehow, Chris is trying to turn things around on Chris. This asshole talks out of both sides of his mouth. Paige is back on board to stay married.
Virginia & Erik
Erik is worried about Virginia’s constant drinking. Virginia says that she and her friends go out drinking every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. She wants him to do that with her. Surely the “experts” could have found a better match for Erik. The next day, Virginia and Erik, go to ride ATVS with Paige and Chris as well as Clara and Ryan. Clara remains very concerned about Paige. Virginia and Pages discuss their concerns with Chris. Chris says their concern is fake, especially from Virginia and Erik. Erik shows up to protect Virginia because he is getting a bit hostile. Chris calls Virginia a drunkard.
Clara ends up in tears. Erik, Virginia and Clara go to comfort Paige. Chris turns things all the way and basically tells them not to talk to his wife. Poor Paige has to apologize for Chris. But it doesn’t end there. Chris tells us he is going to make the van ride home a living hell. Paige is humiliated and apologizing for him again. This guy needs to just ride on.
Briana & Vincent
Briana’s family warned Vincent that she is bossy. She is really annoying. Poor Vincent says he is trying to work on patience. Briana accuses Vincent of not paying attention sometimes. Then, Briana told Vincent that he annoyed her today. She’s annoying all the time. Vincent waits until the cameras were gone to address Briana’s “assertiveness.” The next day they go indoor “sky diving” and things don’t seem to be fully resolved. They loved it. It looks dumb to me.
The Final Dinner
That night at the final dinner, Paige apologizes to the group again. She thanks them all for support. Chris tries to make it all about Chris. He asked Paige to pray for him. Sigh. He gives Paige a big public apology. No one seems to be buying it. He apologizes to Ryan and Clara. Clara also apologizes. Erik and Virginia arrive late again. Erik comes in hot and tells Chris that he can’t allow him to ever speak to his wife that way again. Chris can’t just apologize, he just keeps escalating the situation. Erik says he is taking Virginia back to the room. As they are getting up, Chris jumps up like he wants to fight. Vincent has to get up and physically restrain Chris. Erik and Virginia leave.
Ryan chastises Clara a bit for running her mouth. Clara didn’t take it well. Jacob tries check in with Haley. But she is not really communicating with her. He is struggling because she is very guarded and not receptive. Clara says something is just not clicking for her. These two are not getting along at all. It’s day five.
Vincent walks Chris outside. Vincent is taking Chris’s side. So does Briana. WTF is wrong with these people? Even Paige is sticking up for him!
Next week, the drama escalates for everyone as they all move in together.
