Our inaugural beta series was BIG … and a total blast! Season one started out with 48 speed-daters in the mix.
Episode five recap:
Love triangles and LOTS of tea
So. Much. Mysterious. Drama.
Something about an unofficial cast party and a love triangle? More friction between Aly and Rodney? And did Nicole take a vow of silence? Because we’ve got the feeling she’s keeping some stroooong tea to herself.
Before we try to make sense of the madness, let’s recap the major plot points:
At the close of episode four, we said goodbye to Ella, Gia, and Pedrooo -- our three eliminated speed daters. However, viewer votes brought Ella and Gia back onto the dating stage in episode five, along with new CoupleTV cast members Love and Adam.
We’re curious to hear our newcomers’ takes on the dating dynamic, because from our perspective, people were looking to spill the tea more than they were looking to make twosomes. (At least during certain speed dates ... right, John? We lost count of how many times you were put in the hot seat!)
Anyway, when the dates were done, CoupleTV host Colleen revealed who was at risk of being voted off the show. On the chopping block for the second week in a row were Gia and Jess, along with Jake, Adam, and long-time fan fave Nicole.
Love triangles and LOTS of tea
John was less than thrilled to once again have the unfortunate fan-fave duty of choosing who to save and who to sacrifice, but he also had a trick up his sleeve.
Once again, Gia found herself in the position of being the friend-with-no-benefits, and sadly she was eliminated from the show.
Deciding the fate of the at-risk men was our own lady-in-red and this week’s fan fave Cheryl. Cheryl was caught between a rock and hard place (or, more appropriately, between rock-hard abs and the owner of an undisclosed night-clubbish place), and COULD NOT make a Keep or Cut call until the very last second.
While she had hit it off with Adam on their date and ideally would have liked more opportunities to chat with this season-two newbie, she ultimately chose to keep Jake, who she had met and bonded with at the aforementioned cast party.
Whoooo. All this drama and things don’t really heat up until next week, when our eliminated daters are gone permanently. Not sure we’re ready for the 🔥🔥 that’s going to bring.
But you are, right? Tune in next Tuesday at 7pm ET right here at couple.tv to see what unfolds behind the scenes this week!
