Our inaugural beta series was BIG … and a total blast! Season one started out with 48 speed-daters in the mix.
Episode six recap:
Going, going, gone (again)
One word, folks: WOW.
Episode six did NOT disappoint: Truth or Digital Dare in the Green Room, frank convos between (former?) couples, late-to-the-game twosomes that are H-O-T … in other words, cue the recap vid!
We knew at the start of the episode that it was destined for drama. It was the first time this season that NONE of the daters who were eliminated in the prior episode were voted back. (Sorry, Gia and Adam!) Instead, original cast member Pedrooo returned with a fresh haircut that had Abisola swooning, and newcomer Stina was on-set freestyling with Femi.
On top of that, tensions were high from the get-go since the cast knew that whoever was eliminated at the close of the show would be gone … for good.
When the dating was done (and HOLY 💩 were those dates fiyah … check the goss below), things got real.
Repeat fan fave Cheryl had to make a choice between Jake and Pedrooo, two men who have spent a lot of time on the chopping block. But unlike last week, Cheryl was quick and decisive in her call: her growing connection with Jake meant he was safe from elimination, and for the … third? … fourth? … time, Pedrooo was sent packing.
Going, going, gone (again)
Yes, THAT Aly. The one he’s been fighting with the entire season.
Aly had zero delusions; she didn’t even bother asking Rodney for mercy because she knew that he had just been gifted with the last laugh. (Spoiler alert: she was right, and she was mad.) Less clear was who Rodney would choose to save, but new-girl-on-the-block Love got the golden ticket to episode seven. Jess’s dating days were done, too.
Hooooo boy. We don’t know about you, but we’re going to need to rest and recuperate before episode seven, the real turning point of the series. Anyone have some smelling salts we can borrow?
