Michael and Kathy are dating, but they live apart, so they've never spent more than five days at a time together. From their opening shot, it appears that this is because he spends all of his time jetting around the world to work on the muscles in his inner thighs. They could crush your skull in four seconds. You wouldn't feel a thing. He also has one of those weird soul-patch-goatee hybrid beards. Like, pick an unfortunate era in the development of facial hair trends and commit, for God's sake. If it helps, go look at a time series of Ethan Hawke movies. Michael opines in an interview that "on day seven, she might be clawing [his] eyes out or somethin'." I can't tell whether he has some kind of southern accent, or just talks very, very slowly.
Dennis and Andrew are father and son (respectively). Dennis is a Southern Baptist, and Andrew is a gay cheerleader. Whee! It's just like they say in Gypsy: You gotta have a gimmick. Andrew sits on the boat clapping in an extremely excitable manner. He says that he and his father don't always see eye-to-eye, almost making it sound like Dad objects to the cheerleading as much as to the being gay. We see the two of them on a football field, where Dad sits in a chair looking chagrined while Andrew does a fabulous standing back flip. Well, that'll come in handy if they win. Andrew predicts that they will either come back as "best friends," or someone will be filing a restraining order. Heh. Flo and Zach are friends, and they're not attracted to each other very much, but neither of them is making any progress with anyone else, so they're starting to think maybe they should just get married so they don't have to go on bad dates anymore. At least that's my interpretation. Technically, all they actually say is that they're friends, and they're pondering dating. For some reason that I suspect has a basis in either trauma or pharmaceuticals, Zach likes to wrap his mop of reddish-brown, unkempt, curly locks in a variety of girlish headbands. I think I'm starting to figure out why he's still available. Go get him, ladies! Er ladies? He actually looks a lot like Chrissy on Growing Pains did after she took Miracle-Gro and became seven years old overnight.
