    S08.E11: My Little Secret

    I can not effing stand Luke. I know AJ has anger issues, but at least his are out in the open. Luke has the "if-looks-could-kill" thing going on. Kate is deluding herself if she thinks this is how a happy marriage works. I have rarely seen 2 people be so uncomfortable in each others' presence, let alone a married couple. Jasmine's trying harder, I'll give her credit for that. I think it may be too little, too late, though. I think these two have fundamental differences and never the twain shall meet. Will - put on a seatbelt already! AJ obviously has some issues. He needs therapy and/or meds for sure. He and Steph could still work out, but he needs some better coping skills. Kristine and Keith - they're cute, and they seem the least drama-prone. The "experts" are terrible at matching people. I don't know why they haven't figured this out, after seeing so many couples crash and burn.

    S.08 E.06 Let’s Talk About Sex, Baby

    Afterbuzz TV does a review/discussion of the show on YouTube, which I enjoy. I definitely miss Reality Craycray though, and Bride and Doom.

    Yes, and I'm sure in the personality department, too!

    Interesting. I won't be shocked if Kristine and Keith end up splitting. There's that intense physical chemistry they have, but we've seen that happen before on this show, where it burns out quickly and the couple implodes. Jasmine and Will may agree to stay together on decision day, but I don't think they'll make it long term. AJ and Stephanie are my #1 pick to stay married, they just need to work on communication. I can't remember now about the marriage licenses, I know they've been discussed earlier. They are signed on a later date. I'm just guessing that Lukewarm doesn't want to look like the bad guy, so he'll go along with the show until the inevitable breakdown. I'm sure the money is an incentive.

    S08.E05: 'Til Mud Do Us Part

    Oh, I agree with you. I'd be irritated if my partner was dragging me off to the gym every day or trying to make me take up their hobby. I'm just giving my perspective on what I *see* happening. Keith seems willing to go along with Kristine's wishes, at least for now. Of course, if she can't or isn't willing to cook, all bets are off :)

    S08.E05: 'Til Mud Do Us Part

    Finally caught up with all the episodes. Like many of you, I am not feeling Jasmine and Will. I personally thought she was nuts for wanting Will to take on paying all the bills, and she just took it for granted that he would want to. And I speak as someone whose husband DOES pay all the bills - but I worked the first 7 years we were married and childless and then I became a SAHM because both of us wanted someone to be home with the kids, and it worked out for us financially to do that. But that took negotiation and mutual understanding - it wasn't a given. Plus Jasmine seems very contradictory - she says she's independent, and she acts very bossy on one hand, but then she wants Will to wear the pants and be the man of the house. She says she's adventurous but she whined at the first moment she had trouble on the ATV and said she didn't feel married. She made fun of Will for not wanting to cross the bridge (legit fear!) but then she wussed out over some paintbrush hairs. I don't think she really knows what she wants. Kristine & Keith - I like them so far, and they seem like a cute couple. He seems pretty willing to go along with whatever she wants. They both seem fairly easygoing, so they may work out. AJ & Stephanie - I had high hopes for these two, but the previews look like there's trouble brewing. I hope for their sakes they can make things work. Lukewarm & Kate - ugh, Lukewarm is a pill. I definitely get the feeling that he doesn't think Kate is good enough for him. He obviously didn't make his true desires known to the experts. He's such a jerk though. I would love to hear from his exes. Poor Kate. I hate that the experts will try to make her stick it out and wring affection from the dry husk that is Lukewarm's heart.

    S07.E01: All Stars Goes Global

    Why does Sunny Fong look so familiar? Has he been a guest judge or something? Trying to think where I might've seen him before. I love Dimitry. I'll even put up with Michelle so I can watch him. Who said "European subtle is different from American subtle"? That cracked me up.

    Podcast interview with Stephanie Johnson if anyone's interested: https://sipandshinepodcast.com/podcast//sparkle-lifetimes-love-at-first-flight-stephanie-johnson She and Michael are not together romantically, but still very good friends.

    Going by Alma's and Michael's twitters, they are still happily together. Stephanie and Michael are still together although I'm not sure how serious. And Stephanie (Ryan's ex) is now with Cale (Jenna's ex), it looks like. They seem to be having fun together.

    Does Lifetime's Love At First Flight Take Wing?

    It was a voice actor reenacting the voice of the ex. I think there was *much* more to it that we didn't see. Stephanie claims she spoke about her ex-boyfriend ONCE to Ryan, after he told her that he'd had an ex-girlfriend who was a stalker, but they never talked about it in more detail than that. I didn't like that she made excuses for everything, even when talking with her parents about the Magic Mike show. Anyway, those two lacked communication and it's better that they split.

    Does Lifetime's Love At First Flight Take Wing?

    Yeah, I felt that Stephanie was very manipulative and narcissistic. I thought her behavior at the end was strange. She could not admit she did anything wrong in the relationship; it was all Ryan's fault that they had disagreements. FWIW, the Afterbuzz crew had her on their show for a phone interview to discuss the finale, and she had excuse after excuse for why she acted the way she did. Very sketchy and made no sense to me, especially regarding the ex-boyfriend business. However, she certainly sold it to the Afterbuzz folks, they ate it up with a spoon. I'd love to hear Ryan's side of things. I loved Alma and Michael, I think they are as cute as can be. Hope they make it for the long haul. Stephanie and Michael - she was obviously disappointed that he didn't propose. I'm a bit surprised he didn't. They still seem very friendly on social media, but it doesn't seem to have become more serious. Cade and Jenna - well it had a decent ending after a rocky start. I think they both learned things about themselves, so that's good.

    Does Lifetime's Love At First Flight Take Wing?

    Yes! Two Stephanies and two Michaels. So, Cale was a guest on Afterbuzz TV, talking about the show and Jenna. He was very kind and funny but I think he was very frustrated with her. He was being pretty PC about it though.

    Does Lifetime's Love At First Flight Take Wing?

    I like Alma and Michael, I think they are cute together. They seem to be doing well at developing a friendship and there is potential for something more. Stephanie and Ryan - I like Ryan but Stephanie is starting to bug me. She got all proprietary towards Michael once they hooked up and was telling him what to wear and how to fix his hair. Then she had a big hissy fit over the pink shirt (why?) and didn't want to do the golfing. I don't know why she was being such a pill over it. It was kind of unfair that they got the nice hotel even though they didn't win the challenge. And what was the craziness over her mom and dog's relationship?? OMG, just give the dog to your mom! I seriously rolled my eyes over that bit of info. Stephanie and Michael - he's so handsome, I'm not sure how she's resisted him so far. Yeah, he's a little over the top with the innuendo but some of those jokes were just making themselves :D Stephanie seems awfully uptight most of the time, plus she wants her husband to be a SAHD - not likely. Cale and Jenna - she'd be an annoying person to date, I think, but I wouldn't mind having her for a friend. I just don't think these two have much in common at all. He's a real gung-ho activist/adventurer and she's high maintenance and not very intellectually curious. We'll see if they can keep from strangling each other.

    Ryan, just STFU! You are NOT making yourself look better. Sounds like Jackie has wised up to him. I couldn't stand him early on because of his loudmouth ways, but he also has shown he has no heart. Running out on Jackie when she was sick was a dick move. I hope every woman he meets runs far and fast. He is such a selfish pig.

    Jenna is awful. I don't think she has 2 brain cells to rub together. I think she was dead to Cale after the whole not reading maps/not eating food fiasco, and then the not voting was the stake through the heart. For a supposed kindergarten teacher, she's a huge disappointment. These two have absolutely nothing in common that I can see. Stephanie and Ryan are very cute together. They seem like they might have a shot. I'm curious how his health is now, and when he's returning to work. Alma and Michael - they seem nice enough, and like they will get along fairly well. Not much chemistry between them though. Stephanie and Michael - both are gorgeous. Might be too stubborn and headstrong to end up as a couple though. Coincidentally, I was listening to the radio today, HITS 1 on satellite radio, and the DJ was interviewing a woman from the show, Tina somebody. She was trying to drum up interest and get more people to apply, particularly men (no surprise there). Sounds like they have lots of women applicants.
