I promised myself I would go to bed at a reasonable hour tonight. But, I want to at least start this MAFS Boston recap for MAFS on the last show before decision day. I am dying to know who might stayed married. But, I honestly would not be surprised if none of them did. I’m going to try to make this short.
Jasmina & Michael
Jasmina has not developed feelings for Michael in the first seven and a half weeks. Michael is not looking for a friend, he’s looking for a wife and that doesn’t seem to be happening. He seems like he is over it. Michael meets with all of his sisters to talk about his plans for decision day. Jasmina seem like she is not into him at all. Michael tells his sisters he doesn’t want a best friend, he wants a wife who loves him. That seems fair. And his sisters support him because he needs to feel loved and wanted. Jasmina’s friend tells her to open up more and see if it works. She keeps saying she is not feeling anything so on decision day it would be a no. Well for one thing, Jasmina, you barely let him touch you.
These two go to a dance class. What is it with these couples and dance class? At least these two both like to dance. They are both really good at it. Jasmina is happy. Repeat! Jasmina is happy! Then they have a romantic dinner. Michael is really open with her and he says all the right things. He has no doubt about why they were matched. Jasmina says that everything to this point has benefited them. But, she still has no romantic feelings. She has loved their time together but she is still not sure if she will ever have romantic feelings for him. Jasmina and Michael part with some uncertainty. She still has no feelings after eight weeks.
Lindsey & Mark
I feel like these two are a lost cause. As much as I liked Lindsey at first, I see now that she is just too much. We start with Lindsey wanting to give Mark a fertility test and she wants to know his sperm count. Good Lord. But, as usual Mark goes along with it. It seems like his swimmers are just fine. Mark goes to meet with his friend, Jon to discuss decision day. Mark says that Lindsey shows up when he needs her the most. But other times, she is awful. His friend is telling him that Lindsey is there for him. He seems to think he should say yes.
Lindsey meets with Olajuwan. That says to me she doesn’t have any long term friends. I mean I don’t either other than you guys because I’ve moved eleventy billion times and am preparing to travel again. Lindsey feels like Mark talks to other people before he talks to her. Olajuwan says that is because she is smart and sort of belittles him. Olajuwon feels like Katina should do more in the house. He wants her to do more in the house even though she works full time. Lindsey tells Katina if he says no on decision day he will regret it. Oh Later, Lindsey meets with a friend to chat. She tells her to make a list. Lindsey seems unsure. Mark needs to say OH HELL NO! And I loved Lindsey at the beginning.
Later Mark takes Lindsey to his mom’s apartment where he apparently wants them to live. I think she is in a home somewhere for medical reasons. The have dinner there. I can’t believe Mark who has the tastebuds of a two year old that his parents only fed him chicken nuggets planned a sushi dinner. And he is eating it! YUCK! Lindsey wants a five hundred dollar budget to upgrade the place. There is no way she can do all she wants to for $500. And she is never grateful. She can make her changes later, slowly without hurting his feelings. She is attacking the home he was raised in! Lindsey doesn’t respect his love for family. She wants a new place for the two of them. I can see that. But, she is way too blunt. Then they got dance on the roof and laugh. So who knows.
Noi & Steve
I used to like this couple but I think Steve can do way better than Noi now. Noi is too young to get married and I can’t even remember how old she is. But, she acts like a teenager. I think she will say yes, but I hope that Steve says no. Noi gets help from his female friend Perry to help him pick out a diamond ring for Noi. This is a bad idea. Noi is very materialistic. Don’t waste your money dude. She will only be asking for more! Oh Lord. He is getting in engraved. That means he can’t return it.
Noi and Steve go to dinner together. She doesn’t deserve Steve. Noi is still bringing up not living together after decision day. She is such a child! I cannot believe she is thirty-three. She has the mentality of a six year old. DON’T GIVE HER THE RING, STEVE! Her skin looks horrible tonight. All she cares about is money. She is 33 years old! She’s awful. Steve needs to show the ring and then dump her. Just say NO Steve!
Katina & Olajuwon
Olajuwon doesn’t support Katina finishing her school. He seems to hate school. I love it all. Especially teaching. But, he doesn’t seem to value an education and that was a problem in his previous relationship. Olajuwon “sets up” a romantic dinner for the two of the replete with a dozen roses. We all know this is set up by production. I think these two might make it. Olajuwon still has concerns about her finishing school and still wanting a baby soon. She wants a family. These two might make it? Or at least the editing shows it that way. Katina seems to really be into him and vice versa. They love laughing together. Olajuwon says she took him from a boy to a man and no matter what happens he is better for having met him.
It’s the last day before decision day. I think they MIGHT have a chance. These two both seem nervous about decision day. The guys are leaving and the women are going to a hotel. Olajuwon says that he could get over it if they don’t stay together. He knew the assignment. She is clearly upset. He tells her what she wants for herself and she deserves what is best for her. He tells her to be selfish because that is what his plans to do. We shall see.
The Whole Group Goes To Play Flag Football
These things never go well. Jasmina is the BOSS on this game. But, Mark gets injured. Lindsey tries to rub the cramp out. Then they talk about decision day. Mark says he feels positive about decision day. She uses her smart mouth to say she will let him know. Michael and Olajuwon also think it will go well. Jasmina seems kind of iffy. Noi is still undecided. Steve seems in even with his jokes. They all seem to want to be able to come together again no matter what happens. They want everyone to still be friends.
Next week it is an episode where previous couples talk about who if anyone will stay together. So we don’t get decision day for two more weeks. Come on we have been over this season for a while.
