This week’s episode was interesting with more girls from Chris’s season returning. Things have shifted quite a bit. We also lost three guys right off the bat which was crazy.
Carly and Kirk: I love Carly and Kirk’s personalities. They mesh well and are both charismatic. Their date was really cute, especially with Carly calling her brother. But I can’t believe she missed her brother’s wedding. Well, I guess it depends on how paradise ends. Hopefully, it ends well. They make an adorable pair.
Tanner and Jade: Again, we got some small glimpses of Tanner and Jade doing well. They might be the “Marcus and Lacey” of the season. They’re also the couple I can see surviving in the real world. I know some people think they break up based on the preview, but I don’t buy into that.
Dan/ Ashley S./ Amber: Dan let go of Ashley, and I was so sad for her. He let her down in the nicest way possible, but Ashley was still annoyed at him. Then Amber comes along, and Dan and Amber had a nice date. I enjoyed seeing Dan and Amber because their conversation reminded me of a first date, and not some mushy forever and ever cliche. Remember Michelle and Cody’s wedding shoot? XD
Jared and Ashley I: So Ashley called Jared hot in this episode. That’s it.
Tenley and Joshua: She’s still so amused by his hands.
JJ and Megan: Megan chose JJ for her date, and I kind of thought they’d make a cute, weird couple. But Sobrero? Really?
Joe/ Juelia/ Samantha: I saved this for last because I have a lot of thoughts on this. So the episodes focused on Joe quickly jumping from Juelia to Samantha, and how Samantha and Joe talked before the show and lied to everyone. First, let me say that Juelia was a bit naive. She went a little fast by telling everyone she loved him, and that he would make a great father. And multiple people told her to watch out for Joe, which speaks volumes. However, Joe had no right to talk to Juelia the way he did. He was extremely defensive until Juelia said she wanted to speak to Samantha. Then he started apologizing immediately. He is so manipulative and immature. Good for Juelia when she started saying how she felt played by Joe in front of Samantha. But Juelia didn’t get her revenge yet, because Samantha defended Joe. Things get interesting when Super JJ swoops in for the rescue. JJ has actually grown on me a little. I liked how JJ called out Joe so bluntly. Bless Tanner and Jared who couldn’t handle the confrontation and just sat there.
And Jorge made his debut as Ashley’s counselor. That’s it for these two episodes! Let me know if I forgot to mention something from the episode. Can’t wait for more drama to come.
