    I think your points are valid, but Caro is also telling guys she’s into them (when she probably isn’t) and getting upset/annoyed when the guys aren’t giving her attention. Yes, maybe none of the guys are her type, but she’s also not coming across well. As Weston pointed out to her, if a guy went around doing what she does he’d be labeled a player. I think she turns off guys pretty quickly because she doesn’t come across as authentic and probably gives the impression that she needs a lot of attention.

    Caught up on the show (pro tip, waiting to watch then allows you to ff through the pointless challenges). After hearing Kyra talk about Weston, it’s too bad she only thinks of him as a friend. I think if those two paired up they’d be a great couple and probably win this thing. As it is, I think Zac and Elizabeth will win without much challenge or competition. They met so fast and so early that I can’t see them breaking up if the show tries to insert a new wrinkle, and they’re both so harmless that I think they’ll remain popular with viewers.

    There’s actually a version of Caro who seems sweet and nice and sincere. Unfortunately, we only get glimpses of it because she’s so insecure she reverts to this baby voiced tornado that grated on everyone.

    I like how we’re voting on Most Compatible (on other versions it’s Favorite Couple). I actually think that changes things. For me, I think the couples break into three tiers: Tier 1 compatible zac/elizabeth Dylan/Aleksabdra (safe) Tier 2 new couples still figuring it out weston/Katrina Yamen/Kristen (probably safe, plus the guys are really liked) Tier 3 not compatible caro/cormac kyra/cashel (not safe, have at least one unpopular cast member) To me, this is when the show starts getting good. They’ve been living in a bubble, but as the show goes on they start to get influenced by the outside opinions. I think Kyra will really start to question her relationship if she finds out the public doesn’t think she’s compatible with Cashel. She’ll start to wonder if the viewers see a side of him that she’s not seeing (we are). Caro will probably freak out if she’s in the bottom, but she’s been extra this whole time and Cormac acted super douchey right before we started voting.

    Cashel is really all over the place. He wants Kyra to open up to him and be “all in” with him, whatever that means. Sex? Meanwhile he flirts with everything and acts like he’s the shit. And his outfit for the striptease looked like something out of Silence of the Lambs. Creepy. Otherwise a pretty dull episode. I did catch that when Kyra asked Winston what he “did” he mentioned Big Brother then talked about where he’s from. Lol. Soooo, unemployed Instagram model.

    I think it’s producer-driven, too. This is definitely the style employed in the UK version. I think they’re coached. There’s a reason they say things like, “Would you talk to a new girl if she came in the Villa?” “You should have conversations” and they freak out about dates. I think they’re prodded and coached to talk a certain way and say things a certain way (“likes” not withstanding). It is more resfreshing to hear them talk through things and not just explode after every incident.

    Feel bad for Alana. Don’t feel bad for Mallory. What a brat. Totally self absorbed and petty, wanting Weston to keep her as a friend so she could dump HIM as soon as “John Mayer” walks in?! “It sucks I didn’t meet anybody.” Um, yes you did. You actually met a lot of guys, and you gave zero effort. Bye.

    This stuff kills me. I don’t want to generalise Hannah to represent all women, but she definitely fits a type. This section plus the one above on her feelings for Luke show she not only horribly misjudges people, but she holds on to those initial impressions for WAY too long. To the detriment of her own well being. Maybe she’ll grow out of it, but something needs to click in her head that the initial feelings she had for Luke and Tyler were just that, not real, and she should have adapted as their real personalities came out over time. Or not. I really don’t care about Hannah, but I know people like her and it drives me nuts.

    But doesn’t this show want a good-looking awkward guy? They want “drama” so they don’t want a guy who’s smooth and will handle things. They’d prefer some weak-willed beta dude who will let the women turn things into a shitshow.

    This is the problem with social media that people still don’t grasp. Yes, these platforms give basically everyone easy access to a platform to share their opinions. The flip side is there’s very little editing before stuff just goes out to the world. If you think about op-ed pieces in newspapers or magazines from years ago, someone would write something, make corrections, think on it, review it, change it, then send it to at least one editor to read and look at things from a different perspective. Now thoughts go from our brains to indelible messages to the world with no intermediaries.

    I heard that on shows like the Bachelor when they go on dates they eat first then film a mock dinner date so they can have their conversations. Apparently watching people eat and talk isn’t very appealing to viewers. It kind of explains how people can actually fall for each other on these shows. I’ve always found reality TV dates awkward, because I don’t think people talk about love bad relationships on “first dates”, you talk about common interests, music, sports, current events, joke around. I can see them doing this over dinner then having these “scripted” conversations for TV.

    Didn’t watch Emily’s season but that’s pretty cool that she did that. Obviously the show has changed since then and they just want young, impressionable people who will do whatever ratings demand. Ah, to simpler times.

    It was particularly confusing because Weston was giving her advice on how to improve her relationship with Cormac, then it would cut to a talking head of Caro going on about how attracted she is to Weston. She clearly just wants attention from all the men and doesn’t really like any of them. The only thing keeping her likeable is that she’s not throwing tantrums or being catty. Yet.

    Caro put on a wig for the party (so it’s not permanent) because she wanted to have fun, then chastised Cormac for liking it for some strange reason. She wants him to like her for her, but part of who she is is apparently someone who likes wearing wigs. Idk, seems like a dick move to tell someone they can’t have fun or enjoy a part of your life. And Weston was the one telling her to stop bouncing from guy-to-guy and to actually try giving one guy a legitimate chance. And he’s right, if a guy did what she was doing all the girls would label him as a player trying to game the system (which she may be doing).

    It happens on all these shows, so I can’t fault Mallory too much, but I never understand the person who waits until AFTER they lose control in the game to “dump” someone. Mallory recouples with Weston, she now knows the next time the guys will be choosing and there are probably more women coming, why choose that moment to tell him you’re just friends? I guess it’s nice to be honest, but then she starts freaking out at the idea Weston might leave her for another girl after she tells him she’s not interested in him. Seems like she could wait a little bit and see if she meshes with a guy before having that convo.
