Plus, he’s forgetting about Mo’Rum and Latoya in a few minutes. And Ginger points out that they only live an hour away from each other. Ginger and Mo’Rum both tell us that they expect their relationship to continue back on the mainland. Apparently, this experience has taught Ginger not to punch himself in the face. Such a valuable lesson learned.
Sure enough, Mo’Rum gets teary in her confessional talking about Latoya, and Toya is wiping away some tears after their goodbye. Mo’Rum possibly doesn’t even say goodbye to Grandpa aside from a quick wave. Mo’Rum says she’s the luckiest person in the house to be leaving with two important relationships.
And then there were two. Sadly, they’re on the same plane, so we don’t get the epic goodbye scene I know you were all waiting for between Grandpa and Latoya. Grandpa says he learned never to deal with two girls at once, because that is apparently a thing that must be experienced firsthand in order to truly learn a lesson. Evidently Grandpa “really screwed” himself with that one, but he’s hoping to make things work with Chelsea.
Yeah, you really got the short end of the stick there.
Latoya has apparently learned to “show love” in spite of any issues the roommates may have with each other.
So, going straight from this love-fest to the reunion was really jarring. There’s no time for a full recap, but basically, it was ridiculous. It’s a scary world when Grandpa is the most self-aware person there. Mo’Rum was being obnoxious, even for her. She had her moments of fun on the season, but her bitterness at the reunion was excessive. I could understand being pissed at Ginger (dumping her via text is a massive bitch move), but she was acting like such a CHILD. He did apologize on camera, but he should apologize off camera too.
Captain Needy, yeesh. Was he trying to convince us (and himself) that he’s a casual cocaine user and it’s no big deal? I don’t want to touch that with a ten foot pole. As for Swift vs. Toya, same old shit. She shouldn’t have hit him, but I do think he’s annoying as shit sometimes so I don’t really want to take his side either.
I was glad to hear Chelsea dumped Grandpa. He said a lot of self-aware things about being wrong, but with him I often get the sense that he’s just saying what he thinks he’s supposed to say even if he doesn’t necessarily mean all of it. That’s why I still suspect he has political aspirations. I mean, he does have that Homecoming King background and all. And good to know RomCom is still eagerly waiting on the back burner. Girls like her just kill my soul a little bit. It’s so frustrating to watch, and it seems like she’s learned nothing from it and hasn’t grown up at all. Maybe someday.
So, what did everyone think of the final episode and reunion? Was the finale completely all over the place or was that just me? Do you feel like we saw more of Swift’s personality this week than we have all season? Did you expect Mo’Rum and Ginger to crash and burn so quickly? Do you still like Latoya after the reunion (if you liked her to begin with)? Are you worried about Captain Needy? Are you glad to be rid of the Grandpa and RomCom drama? Oh wait… we have the whole Challenge to deal with that.
