This all segues into a montage of the show's steamiest moments. Holly says she feels bad for her fiancé if he's been watching the show week after week with his friends, all watching her make out with everyone, but that he's probably used to it by now. Cohen reads an email from a viewer who says she felt like there was a connection, unexplored, between Perry and Stephanie. The entire room erupts as Stephanie and Perry both laugh, embarrassed. Stephanie says they'd always have a glass of wine at the end of the day and talk about their hopes and dreams and whatnot. "She's a cool girl," Perry says. "She's got a cool vibe." Cohen reveals that Perry said at one point that Stephanie had a bigger crush on him than he had on her. "Oh my God," Stephanie says, rolling her eyes. "You are so obsessed with yourself, I can't even begin to describe it." Exactly. Perry very weakly tries to brush it off, but it's so obvious he said it. Tyson says that Perry and Stephanie would actually make a cute couple, and Perry says yeah, Stephanie's cute and a great girl. They might actually make a fine couple, sure. She's not more attractive than him, and she seems like she can put up with his endless, constant, energetic bullshit.
Since we can't go a week without giving Perry a chance to talk about his stupid girlfriend National Enquirer story, the one he claims not to want to discuss at all, they spend yet another five minutes on it. After making such a big deal about wanting his tattoo airbrushed out of his photo shoot last week, apparently he's going to wait until he gets home to decide what to do about his relationship.
Aryn pipes up, saying that Perry got a good taste of what it was like having his life put under a microscope (though I'd counter that he got not even a drop of a taste of what it's really like since no one cares about his dumb girlfriend or, tangentially, him), and that when she went home she lost sleep after staying up all night reading what people on the Internet had to say about her in the competition. "I was like 'oh, my gosh, people are so mean,'" she says. She says she was most hurt that people blew her friendship with Ben out of proportion, when what she should actually be upset about is that Bravo blew it out of proportion.
Cohen asks how many of their relationships ended as a result of being on the show. "Not me!" frankie says, giddily. Jay and Katy both raise their hands. Jay finally gets a chance to talk, saying that his girlfriend was just starting a bunch of crap with him when he got home, and so he just had to let the relationship go. I like Jay so much. I hope he gets some work out of this, of some kind. Katy, also, says she and her boyfriend had really grown apart and broke up. Perry KILLS me by adding: "It's got to be one of the biggest challenges any of our relationships will ever go through." SIIIIIIIGH, spoken like only a young 20-something could speak it. You should PRAY to GOD this is the biggest challenge your relationship will ever face.
