…another week, another show, and more fantastic shots of this beautiful rock.
I’ve decided to change the format of my recaps and separate it into different categories; otherwise every other sentence will have something to do with
annoying young love drama people talking about hooking up hormones. And here goes.
Two sets of kayaking adventures on this week’s show, and it must be very deceptive on TV because it looked like LaToya and Marie were kayaking right in the middle of the harbor, which would be very dangerous, especially after seeing their poor kayaking skills. But props for getting out on the pretty water. Later on the rest of the
cast roomates had a kayaking trip. Glad to see them getting out and enjoying their surroundings. I will count shopping as an activity and we had one excursion, LaToya and Marie had their awesome boat captain Lee (sp? I don’t know Lee, but he seems super cool with his task of boating these kids to and fro) drop them off in town where they browsed the Purple Papaya store and bought some colorful cowboy hats. We also had a quick shot of the Treasure Seeker, that huge red boat in the harbor (available for charters and parties, plug for Ray!)
No beaches in this week’s episode. Good thing I guess, I mean who really wants to look at an ugly Caribbean beach with all that soft sand and turquoise water on TV? Not this girl. No, no. Glad we dodged that bullet.
Let’s see…they hit up five spots in total, including my workplace, Shipwreck Tavern! The big hanging shark got his close-up, we saw someone pouring sweet & sour mix into a Shipwreck cup and 10 seconds later it was over. Everyone playing pool was blurred out and none of my co-workers made the cut. They also partied down at Duffy’s Love Shack which looks wicked fun on TV – and that’s because it is! I’m personally a big fan of Duffy’s. They also made their way to Epernay in Frenchtown and upstairs to old Stereo (now called Nouveau?) where Marie treated us to some drunk, dirty, somewhat unbalanced dancing. Fat Turtle also made the cut and I will assume they spent many nights there as it’s A) fun B) the closest point by boat from their Hassel Island pad.
Life in the House:
This week centered around the budding romances between Trey and Laura (edited to look like a Stage 5 Clinger) and Robb (the Ginger Man) and Marie. Trey and Ginger Man both have ladies back home (DRAMA) but neither appears to have the ability to ignore the ladies right in front of them (DRAMA). There’s much conversation from all of them that goes a little something like this: “i like him blah blah she’s super cool blah blah you’re annoying but i love you blah i want to kiss you blah blah but you have a girlfriend blah but i really like you blah blah let’s flirt ALL the time”. “blah”. These moments are the ones I’m more likely to zone out during and at one point I had to rewind about ten minutes of this puppy love because I started making a mental note of the errands I had to to take care of the next morning before work.
The result of all this flirting between these two couples was Laura finally getting Trey in bed (and, like, totally doing it, but then, like, confessing that she, like just wants to take it one day at a time even though we all know she won’t be able to) and Marie and Ginger also landing in bed together (once Marie got over her jealousy about Ginger’s back-home-girl and after Ginger pretty much broke the phone on his face after his back-home-girl confessed to bedding another. *eye roll*).
LaToya and Swift barely got any airtime this week as they are (smartly) not trying to hook up with anyone in the house and are just trying to enjoy life on the island. Boston Boy Brandon also had little airtime other than helping to match-make Ginger and Marie. I missed these three this week and hope they get some more
storylines airtime next week as I’m maxed out on the young adult romance crap.
And that’s a wrap. No points awarded to any locals as no one got any airtime and no one got in the house.
TGIF, it’s Friday the 13th! If you see anyone in a hockey mask RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!
