I felt sorry for Myriam. I can’t believe Patrick thought it was okay to fondle her.  Where I come from that is considered sexual harassment. If that were me, I would go upside his head.

“I never cry for men; men cry for me” said Jenny, the virgin.  Alrighty then!

I do not feel sorry for Myriam.  She is the one playing games.  She was out of line complaining about her boyfriend, and when Patrick started to respond to that she freaked out.  I don't know if I even believe she has a boyfriend, or whether this whole thing is scripted.  She and Patrick read as a couple to me.

WHY did Corny sit in that hot cubicle for 24 hours???  I was screaming at her to go to a hotel, but did she listen?  I wanted to slap his smarmy, smartass face when he asked if she was getting her period.  WHY does she think so litttle of herself that she put up with that shit?  

What is up with Abby?  I cannot read her, but I know she's lying.  I suspect she is telling whatzit whatever he wants to hear because he is leaving the next day.  She does love Chris, and she did end up in bed with him, definitely.  

Why did Karine forgive Paul?  Forget his criminal histroy - what about his behavior was acceptable?  She gave him the exact same look as her father, but then basically gve him permission to keep acting like a spazz in the future and put her in harm's way.  

Why do these women settle for so little?

She's had hundreds of men.  Do you expect her to remember their names?

Oh yes, it was.  And then he had the nerve to act exasperated with her because she wanted to know what it meant.  Also, the whole climbing-the-stairs-in-the-windmill thing was not only utterly bizarre, but cruel in light of her fear of heights.  He knew she wanted a proposal, and he went out of his way to make her think one was coming, and then pulled the plug.  Quelle fuckwit.  

The only thing worse would have been if he ahd proposed and she had accepted, which she would have.  

I'm even more convinced they are into dominance/submission.  And I want ZERO details.

Any bets on how quickly Abby ran to Chris after this was filmed?  Like, he was probably waiting 5 feet away from her, right? 

Ayup.  He's already inside her house, which is why she couldn't let Ignatz in.

That smile she gave the producer when he asked if she loved Chris said it all!

 

Sean is indeed a complete idiot.

Hope no one played the "Baby" drinking game with Darcey and Jesse tonight. That was an unprecedented number in rapid succession... followed by a Shyamalan twist non-proposal.

That Corney/Antonio convo was great. Some great lines in there. "Corny pls, stop" "Are you getting on your period?" "No more wine"

I give zero shits about Myriam when she's the one playing games.  She knows lip licker is into her, yet she strings him along with that friend zone bullshit.  If she does have a boyfriend, and that's debatable, she's an ass for playing them both and she deserves to get her feelings hurt.  You don't have a man fly all the way to Paris to see you and somehow forget to tell him youre already in a relationship.  The boyfriend sounds like she's just a drive by when it's convenient and she's only now starting to realize it.  She feels stupid for being a side piece and well she should.

I dislike Darcey a lot, for all the reasons we have discussed here.  But Jesse was wrong and even Darcey did not deserve such a cruel mind fuck.

Jenny and Abby are both players and use her tears and pout to manipulate their suitors.

I continue to feel very sorry for Karine and I know why she forgave him.  Courtney is just a lost case.   The level of desperation of some of the participants is just overwhelmingly pathetic.

I'm coming to the end of the road with these shows and may soon be dropping it.   I doubt I'll be missed much in this forum but I'm grateful for the insights and the laughs.

 So Courtney thinks waiting 1 1/2 weeks is holding out and making Antonio wait for sex???? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAA!!! 

 She spent that day alone in his apartment snooping through everything he owns.

I hope that this show is scripted and that Americans are not as stupid and naive as this show portrays them.  Not one of them have any self respect.  Darcy, that guy totally made you look like a fool climbing (hopefully not in your Louboutin's) all that way, dropping to his knee and then pulling the rug out from you by telling you it was NOT an engagement ring - why even do that if not to make her look like an ass?  Larry, you weren't moving fast enough with your proposal so she manufactured drama to make sure that he would give her that assurance and it worked!  Corny, you sat alone in a hot apartment, not knowing if he was actually even at his mother's - he could have been screwing someone else for all she knew. That should have answered any questions about how he feels about her; he was probably assuming she would have had the sense to leave without him actually physically removing her.  I feel bad for Karine that she is so desperate to get out of her situation that she will put up with Paul no matter what- it's on her now. Sean, you are as dumb as a box of rocks, but Abby must have a few sexual tricks that he's not quite ready to relinquish just yet.

Yep. The camera crew wasn’t allowed inside. Producers dragged Sean to the house in hopes of a confrontation. It reminded me of an old school episode of Cheaters.  She was carefully to not move the curtain and took him away from the house to smirk/talk.

Antonio was hoping Courtney would get mad and take off after not hearing from him after they had sex. Courtney needs to get a clue. I know this sounds bad but Jenny was gangster  when she said she doesn't cry for men. I love her now.  Really Jesse a why get on one knew for a friendship? ring that was just wrong. Abby is crazy I know she loves Chris but if she wants to play this  green for sex thing marry Sean she needs to forget about Chris. I don't know why she even mentioned him in the first place.  Sean wouldn't have known a damned thing about Chris.

This show features some dismal examples of stupid, desperate humans, and since the show is produced in the US those people are Americans.  I'm pretty sure almost every country has an equal share of prelimbic mutoids, because the undead are all around us.

I doubt Antonio went to get money from his mother. He had his little overnight sex bag. He either hooked up with someone or traded sex for cash.

Lawd! What a shitshow!  The whole promise ring thing should be enough for Darcey to have a BIG old glass of chardonnay!  I understand  Karine forgiving the creeper, girl's gotta get the freak out of Brazil.

Old ass Sean and old ass  Chris ought to team up and just SHARE... like gentlemen.

Cortney and Larry should get together and have some snacks.

Why was Antonio walking around in his underwear whilst being filmed? Why didn't Courtney just go to a hotel when the AC broke? Why were the two of them just staring at each other when the AC broke, like neither of them had enough brains to leave? These are the questions I have

I am rapidly losing interest in Paul and Sean's stories. It's clear it doesn't matter what assholes these guys are, the women will marry them anyway. 

Speaking of assholes, that was so awful with Darcy and Jessie . But then again,they are fake, so I'm assuming they planned the whole thing.

    Abby to producer: “Yes, I still love Chris. (Big, not-even-attempted-to-suppress, snarky grin): ...as a friend!”

  Jesse and the “promise ring” in the barn/windmill place....please tell me that was scripted! If not, he is  straight-up sadistic to get down on one  knee, proclaim his love for Darcey, and give her a ring....then say, “It’s not an engagement ring.” He knows how deluded Darcey is, still seeking the fairy-tale ending...that was a cruel mind-fuck. 

Oh she has probably contacted a lot of men online because she is looking to get out of the Philippines. The men that look for those "mail order brides" probably would cry a the drop of a hat.  Highly doubt they are mature emotionally stable men. Don't doubt she is telling the truth.

Man.  I feel like I have a complete picture about why Larry hasn't done well with women.  His stubborn lack of understanding that IT ISN'T ABOUT THE FOOD was driving me insane.  But, Jenny capitalized on his total idiocy like the cool, calculating snake she is.  Larry is getting PLAYED.

Darcy and Jesse brought the LOLz tonight.  Jesse straight trolled Darcy with that nonproposal.  Hilarious.  

Ugh, Patrick.  I would have smacked him. Myriam needs, however, to get her shit together re: Patrick b/c it comes off as game playing.  

Cortney and Antonio are so uncomfortable.  So.  They do the sex, and then, he runs away.  LOLOLOL.  He clearly wanted to hit it and send her complain-y ass away.  Cortney seems like a joyless person, but she's put herself in a situation where she's stuck with man who wants nothing to do with her.

Any bets on how quickly Abby ran to Chris after this was filmed?  Like, he was probably waiting 5 feet away from her, right?  The way she said "I'll do it for love" was just gross and such a lie.  Sean is an idiot for falling for her bullshit, but he has eyes and he can see what she is, so if she scams him, it is on his own head.

Jesse, you can't just expect someone to stop 'drinking' because you ask them to - your way or the highway. It's not going to work. The promise ring or whatever it was - was just dumb. You don't play with someone like that. You be honest. Obviously Darcey has way too many red flags for you, so it's better off to finish off the time you have together and break away.

Cortney, Antonio finally got you in the sack. He doesn't want you and with the A/C being broken, gave you the time to slip away and maybe book a bus to Ibiza and go finish your vacation time in a better place. I thought it was a bit tasteless to have him making breakfast in his undies. Put on a robe or T shirt or something. Surely as a gentleman, he would book a hotel for the both of you for a couple of days. That is IF he wants to spend more time with you. It ain't working.  He is probably counting the days til you go home and he gets his life back. The heat and lack of A/C is making you cranky.

Jenny, most men who have 'cried' over you have done so with joy - they dodged the bullet that is you! You are a professional and you found an easy mark. Yes, it was rude of Larry to not eat the pork, but you could have mentioned the dinner to him and what is expected of him. His behaviour was abysmal, but on some level you know that is not a world traveller, he has never been out of the US, he has few social graces. This is what you have been chatting to on the Cupid site. And you know it. Larry is as he is and is not likely to change. Think long and hard about if a Green Card via him is worth it. And Larry, sweet little Jenny from the Cupid site is not what is in front of you. Pictures and conversations lie. Right now, you are playing him like a fiddle.

Sean, maybe chat with Chris about sharing Abby. Like shared custody and a six month split.

Karine, desperation does as desperate does. You have every right to wonder if Paul will ever do anything to you and your family.

Myriam, stop playing Patrick. Be upfront with him about what *you* want. Take a timeout, stop being his tourguide, and wish him an enjoyable Paris vacation. Go away, talk to your 'boyfriend', take some space for yourself. And probably get away from both. You're having your cake and eating it too.

I'm betting that appreciation ring is CZ. The editing in Holland is weird. In some scenes there's snow on the ground and Jesse has a beard, in other scenes no snow and Jesse is clean shaven and his hair is in a barrette. 

Of course Karine forgives Paul, she's gotta get him to buy her a new cellphone. Filipino Cupid will forgive Larry too, she's got to get to America. 

Corny needs to go home, is there a couple more miserable? Oh wait, there's Myriam and Jumpin' Jack Flash.

World traveler? It's pork. Pork is everywhere in the USA. Bacon is practically a food group.

Larry acting like pork is something exotic was stupid as fuck. Pig pickings and the south are like oil and vinegar.

I'm Team Antonio all the way.  listening to Corney discussing her on-line relationship with Antonio, she never mentioned being invited to stay with him. We know he said something about her being the mother of his children but there was no invitation. 

So this silly girl shows up at his door, no luggage, no hotel reservation with a chip on her shoulder. She wants to stay with him, she wants his full attention, she wants to meet his family and friends. She's crazy.  Seriously!

now imagine a foreign man showing up at her doorstep with the same demands in small town USA, we would be suggesting she file a restraining order.

Bottom line, he's not that into her.
