It’s the end of the evening and while Melissa is happily flitting around telling everyone she finally met the vagina whisperer, Danielle is having a hard time. She’s confused because her conversation with Kevin brought up unresolved feelings for him. That combined with the fact that they have both grown for the last ten years have left her feeling as if she would like to try again.
Is she sobbing because her son doesn’t have his father with him everyday
or is she hoping to use that as an excuse to try to win back Kevin?
It’s time for the hot seat and as the girls gather, Steve tells him that the previous evening was an eye opener. There is a lot to be learned by observing the girls with their exes and the biggest thing he was looking for was to see if they had moved on. As he scolds that many of them seemed to have regressed in their progress, he surprises me by announcing that Melissa did the best this week.
It doesn’t seem fair that the girl with no ex wins the distinction.
Alright, Steve has a point that Melissa told Chris exactly how she felt and that she made a decision, took the reins and went with it. He says he’s very proud of her. I’m still irritated at how long it took her to see the golden egg right in front of her eyes. Can I just give her one annoying thumb flick to the temple before we let this thing go?
Steve turns to Danielle next and I must say, the vulnerability she is showing is very fetching.
She should be glad I wasn’t writing about last week too.
I’ll let that nastiness go and just focus on how lovely she is here.
Danielle explains to Steve that when you have a kid with someone, the connection you have with them never completely goes away. She’s surprised that Kevin cared enough to come to boot camp and support her and now she’s wondering if she’s still in love with him. In his feedback, Kevin sounds positive and supportive but he certainly doesn’t sound like he wants to get back together. Steve shows Danielle the feedback from Corey in which he says he was impressed with how she handled things with her ex and that he’s starting to fall for her. Danielle says she doesn’t feel like it would be fair to be with Corey with all these unresolved emotions, but Steve points out that Kevin has moved on and nothing in her life has changed since yesterday. He tells her she needs to calm down, reflect on the past and then move forward.
Steve moves on to Stephanie next and asks her what the hell happened. She says that her emotions were completely torn by having both men there and Steve points out that John is a million times over a much better man than Jessie. To illustrate, he goes to the feedback with Jessie and asks Jessie if he would still want to date her.
Yeah. I would totally add her to the rotation.
Oh honey, how could you ever think this was the best you could do?
When Steve talks to John in confessional, he admits he’s worried that Steph will go back to Jessie, especially since he’s falling for her. Stephanie is thrilled to hear the news and she promises Steve she will focus on not pushing John away for the rest of their time in the house.
After Stephanie, Steve announces that the hot seat this week isn’t about the best and isn’t about the worst. That means Elizabeth will be in the hot seat, because she’s the only one so fragile that she’ll beat herself up over having failed yet again. Poor dear. Steve tells her he just needs a lot of questions answered.
She’s still wearing jail clothes. She just can’t shake the memories of Paul.
