Dates are over, now Patti’s following up. She and Destin call Paolo to get his take on how things went. They first ask about her whole touching issue, and Paolo didn’t notice anything weird about that, so they must’ve cured her. Patti asks if they smooched, and he says he kissed her on the cheek. “So you’re not attracted,” she concludes.
Aimee comes in to chat, and she speaks well of the date, generally. But she also speaks of what she learned during her time with Patti, that dating doesn’t have to be SUCH A BIG DEAL, and it’s okay if a guy kisses her goodnight and there’s no chemistry. It’ll be okay. Aimee and Patti agree that it was a good learning exercise for Aimee, but there’s no longer-term match here.
Patti then calls up Shelise, who speaks highly of her date with Matt. They’ve already had their second date, and apparently he’s talking about flying her out to Arkansas for a visit. Patti and Rachel high-five.
Matt comes in for his sit-down with Patti, and he seems super subdued/reserved. Like, Patti compliments him about the candy trail, and he’s like, “okay.” She asks if they kissed, and he says “not after that.” Huh? He agrees that a sweet, docile girl is really who works best for him. He smiles a little, at least, when Patti suggests he book the plane ticket for Shelise TODAY.
Captions of Truth, what say ye? Paolo and Aimee are no longer, we already knew that. The update about Shelise and Matt is more vague, saying they’re still planning to visit, and something about the hunting invitation with Dad. What does that actually MEAN, though?
Confession time– a friend of mine knows Matt and gave me an in to ask him a few questions about his experience on the show. I’m still waiting for him to get back to me (and I admit that I’m pretty much a terrible interviewer—see my interview with Josh/Penguin Tat from Money Hungry as an example), but when I do, I’ll get that intel to y’all. I want to know what he and Shelise are actually up to, if anything!
Next week! PLUMPTY DUMPTY HELLO KITTY from the NY season is back!!! YAY!!!! That was my all-time favorite MM episode, ever. Looks like she’s still totally ridiculous—please come back and share in her glory with me!
