Last we saw the couples, they had just separated into two mansions and paired with a like minded stranger.
Here’s a reminder for us all, because it’s been a week.
Ben and Christie (swapped with Tyler and Olga).
Justin and Neesha (swapped with Lachlan and Miranda).
Kendrick and Romina (swapped with Aimee and Marcus).
The beach mansion: Ben, Olga, Justin, Miranda, Kendrick and Aimee.
The city mansion: Neesha, Lachlan, Christie, Tyler, Romina and Marcus.
So last week ended with Christie and Tyler defend themselves against Lachlan and Neesha. Neesh and Lachlan are attacking them for sharing a bed, and comparing it to cheating.
And now, we’re continuing their assault. Meanwhile, Marcus and Ro are sitting there being awkward as it’s getting a yelling.
Neesh is taking things way out of proportion. Tyler says, “There are plenty of fish in the sea,” and tries to continue saying that if his partner cheats, he’d be sad but move on. And then Lachlan is saying that’s super disrespectful.
For some reason, Neesh starts to cry.
Christie’s like, “Why are you crying? We’re not saying anything about you.”
And then Neesh is like, “Um we haven’t attacked you, you’re attacking me now.”
It’s honestly wild. While I get that Lachlan and Neesh just don’t understand the other’s perspective, they’re being terrible about it, and causing unnecessary dramas.
The table goes quiet.
The next day, Marcus and Tyler hang out and talk about the sitch.
Neesh and Lachlan, meanwhile, are doing facials. She’s glad they held their morals, and they can talk to each other about what’s going on. They get along super well.
Tyler talks about how Neesh and Lachlan get along very well, and if anything, they’re more intimate than he and Christie.
Christie says that if Miranda could see how close Neesh and Lachlan are, she wouldn’t be happy.
So it’s time for therapy. At the beach mansion, the relationship coach, Guy, is there with the tapes of their interactions with their real partner.
Olga’s first. Her clip is her and Tyler in the car talking about how he lets women talk to him. It’s a longer clip about how he doesn’t spend enough time with her, etc.
She got to see how she’s demanding and what not, but then see’s how he says things like, “I’m building a life and you can be a part of this.” That annoys a lot of the couples there, and they all sympathise with her.
Her reaction is being angry, not missing him, seeing how he treats and talks to her in the clip.
Next is Aimee. Her clip is her and Marcus in bed, and he’s sounding super whiny. She tells him to go home, and he packs a bag.
Guy talks to her about her reactions to what Marcus says.
Aimee says she feels that the dog takes precedent, followed by the boys, and then her. Olga fully agrees and sympathises.
“Here’s the vagina talking again,” Tyler says. “He doesn’t talk to her so she kicks him out?”
Miranda is up next. Her clip is her and Lachlan at a cafe talking about how he thinks she’s naive about men’s intention towards her.
Guy’s worried because she sees Lachlan’s controlling behaviour as loving, when it’s more restrictive and not very healthy.
“It seems like Lachy’s actually blaming you,” Guy says.
“I dunno, I know we both fully trust each other,” Miranda says.
Guy does not agree at all.
Everyone agrees with Guy that this is not good and no right behaviour, and not healthy.
This is wild, and honestly I’m really glad that they get this chance to analyse their relationships.
She tries to block it out and not think about it.
Outside, Aimee is thinking about what was said. She reveals to Kendrick and Ben that Marcus has cheated on her in the past, and was sending messages to another girl, so they broke up for a bit.
Meanwhile, Olga, Miranda and Justin are talking about Tyler. They’re really validating her feelings, pretty much. She says that if they were in Canada, they’d probably have already broken up.
Look, I really want to avoid a play by play, but that’s just kinda how it’s going, not gonna lie.
Ro is saying that she’s getting a bit annoyed with Marcus because he makes jokes of things that aren’t funny, and they’re not getting along as well now. She’s feeling a bit lonely.
Jaqui is here for their therapy.
First is Lachlan. It’s the same clip as Miranda’s.
His refelction is that it comes across as trying to tell her not to have fun, and coming across as controlling. Again, he turns it around on her and is pretty much like, “Well she’s being too friendly, etc.” Neesh is shocked, and the women agree that it’s not good for him to say that sort of stuff.
It’s Tyler’s turn, and again, same clip as Olga.
He feels guilty and embarrased from seeing it.
Christie is like, “I would’ve punched you in the face. I thought it was a bit rude.”
Lachlan refers back to the whole ‘there are other fish in the sea’ comment from dinner.
Next is Marcus. During the clip, he leans over and ruffles Aimee’s hair, saying, “I can give you the same attention I give her [the dog].” Aime says, “Don’t,” and brushed his hand away.
In therapy, he laughs and points at the screen, glancing at everyone else. No-one is amused.
At the end of the the clip, he points at it again and say, “Aimee’s real, guys.” Again, no-one even smiles.
Jaqui asks if this is a daily occurance, and he says yes.
Ro says, “I see where she’s coming from,” before saying that he makes everything a joke, there’s no serious time, and it really annoys her.
Everyone pitches in and agrees it’s annoying.
“No-one came to me, but now in a group setting they’re all coming at me,” Marcus says, getting angry and defensive.
After the therapy session, Marcus reflects on it all and feels hurt about the comments.
Everyone sits down outside that night, and everyone can tell that Marcus is a bit off. They encourage him to talk, saying they’re all here to improve themselves as well as the relationship.
It ends up being another therapy session, and she tells him what he could improve. Infuriated, he gets up and walks out.
He heads up stairs and started packing his bags. Wow, this is a bit of a reminisce of his therapy clip tbh.
Marcus heads downstairs, and everyone’s like what are you doing? He calls the popo.
Everyone’s like why are you doing this? Tyler says he’s ruining the experience for everyone in the house right now, and they call him childish.
That’s the end of the episode, and I’m honestly wishing it’s next Wednesday already!
As usual, I write my recaps as I watch the episode, so there will be spelling and grammar mistakes.
The Super Switch will be back next Wednesday. In the meantime, why don’t you check out some MasterChef?
Enjoy my recaps? Consider buying me a coffee.
