Well, I guess I should tell you what happens. Mike and Samantha stay together, to the surprise of no one. Steele and Erica are up next. Steele says that he doesn't want Erica to get hurt after this, and doesn't want to lead her on, so he's going to ask Brandee to be his partner. Brandee is shocked, and she waffles for a minute and then says no. Wow. She just wants to go home. Steele goes to the unmatched area. Now Erica has the power. You know she's not going to ask Ben. She hated him a lot. So Erica asks Steele for round two and he TURNS HER DOWN. Wow. That wasn't boring. So now they're both in the unmatched area.
Miles and Heather are up next and they stay together. Theresa and Skip are up next and they also stay together. So now Ben and Brandee are up. It's Ben's choice and he admits that he likes Brandee but she might kill him if they stay together, so he asks Erica to join him. And she says no. Wow. Everyone hates one another. Now Ben is also in the unmatched area. Brandee says that there's nothing that Ben could say that would make her want to stay. So is she going to ask Steele to join her? No.
So, there are four people in the unmatched area and none of them want to be together. Can't the two girls team up? That would actually be kind of awesome. Stupid heteronormative show. Instead, all four of them are going home, and we're left with the three boring couples.
In Steele's exit interview, he says that he didn't want to lead Erica on, because he's done it before. Erica says that her ego is bruised, but she thinks Steele is more afraid of commitment than her. Ben claims he's going to change how he talks to people. He won't. Brandee is all, "I am woman, hear me roar" and says that she won't settle.
Now this show is basically The Amazing Race since the couple-switching is probably over unless someone loses a toe again. But it's confined to one country, and the people are really boring, so yawn. See you next week, if there is actually anyone else out there watching!
