This comes as no surprise. She did awesome with the restaurant disaster and she was incredible as a stand up comic. George Herbert Walker comes on and tells Steve that he’s very attracted to Donna and they have definitely made a connection. He says if Steve splits them up he will find a way to be with Donna. Wow!
Steve turns to Melissa and says he doesn’t know what to think. He asks her what she’s looking for. She says she wants someone who is bigger than her. That’s what’s missing with Chris. Danielle looks as if she can relate. I’m giving this girl the side eye ’cause that’s the stupidest reason to rule out a great guy I’ve ever heard.
She knows how much Chris likes her
and she doesn’t want to hurt him.
Even Steve knows the likelihood of finding another guy who likes her that much is pretty slim. Chris comes on in video and says humiliating himself was all worth it to get to spend more time with Melissa. Steve tells her that there is no way in hell he’s sending Chris off again after how he put himself out there. He tells Melissa she has to go out with Chris again and break up with him if she doesn’t want to date him anymore. She seems more than willing to do it.
Stupid, stupid girl.
Stehanie gets called in to the hot seat.
Strike 1 for our sweet Barbie.
She tells Steve she’s either in the chair for her tantrum of threatening to go home or for her conversation with John the night before. Steve starts out by telling her if she ever pulls that kind of act again, he’ll come over and help her pack her bags.
He tells her that she did awesome on stage but she bombed with John. She explains that she tried to open up to John and tell him how she felt and he said nothing, which she interprets to mean he doesn’t feel the same. She tells Steve she knows John has a problem with trust and she wants him to know she can be trusted and won’t lie to him.
Do you think you could tell this to John?
Steph says she really wants to have a chance to tell John that. With that, Steve invites John to come in!
John is afraid she’ll either quit boot camp to be with him
or stay and make out with more random men.
She explains that she isn’t proud of what she did, but she was starved for affection and she wasn’t in a relationship. She says she didn’t expect to fall for someone in boot camp, but she did and now that she has, she’s terrified. Unfortunately John’s response is not the most promising.
You are very important to me.
John says he really wants her to finish the boot camp and she tells him she’s messed up and she really needs to. Steve wraps things up and encourages them to embrace this milestone in their relationship. Steve scolds Stephanie and warns her not to go hot and cold on him anymore.
And stop wearing your dog tag backwards.
Stephanie returns to the couch and Steve tells the girls that at this point in bootcamp they should be able to know what they are doing wrong and what they have to do to stop it. I’m not sure Melissa is ever going to get it, sadly.
And so another week of Tough Love is over. I really had fun watching this episode and there was a fantastic extra joke by Donna during the credits about blow jobs. Finally a great week where the girls learned something and put it into action. Let’s hope next week is just as good.
