Who’s who in the zoo? Don’t worry, I got you.
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. Their therapist is Jacqui Manning.
The city mansion: Neesha, Lachlan, Christie, Tyler, Romina and Marcus. Their therapist is Guy Vicars.
Everyone is meeting their real partners experimental partner. And that’s pretty much it! There’s been a little bit of drama, because Ro, Justin and Lachlan are a little bit the worst, but it’s fine I guess…
Christie and Olga meet up today. Olga’s worried and has a lot of questions to ask Christie.
Olga says that Ben’s always had alcohol each day, which really upsets Christie.
Talking about the present, Christie says that Tyler thought the ring was a way to mark her territory.
Christie then says that Tyler has described her as a monster. Olga says it’s because he’s so secretive. He has all her passwords and access to her stuff, but he keeps everything hidden from her.
“I wanna lay it out to you, Tyler basically said to me that Olga said I can share a bad,” Christie tells Olga, before saying that they had put up a pillow wall.
Olga gets so mad and says that he wasn’t supposed to share the bed unless he has to.
Then, Christie tells her about the tickle situation and Olga gets upset about that as well.
“I hate him,” Olga says. “I don’t want to be engaged to someone who thinks it’s okay to do this shit. I want you to tell him I don’t want to marry him. I want to go home.”
Christie is on her way home and she feels guilty about the fact that Tyler lied to her about being able to share a bed.
She gets in and everyone, bar Tyler, is there. She tells them about what happened and everyone’s annoyed that he lied, was so convincing, and so adamant to live by this lie with no remorse.
Olga gets home, and everyone except Ben is there. Straight away, she’s ready to vent about what happened with Christie. She’s so mad, and takes off her engagement ring.
“He can have it once we get home,” she says. “I hope Ben punches Tyler in the face.”
Ben and Tyler meet up. When he walks in, Ben just sits down, doesn’t shake his hand or anything.
It’s time to talk about the tickles, and I’m so excited.
Ben brings it up, knowing that Christie was really uncomfortable by it, and Tyler is really chill in saying what happened. “The other guys tried to use it against us.”
Ben lunges over and starts to fight him. They both throw a few punches, and end up on the ground, being pulled apart. This is the most MAFS drama we will see on this show.
Actually, I have a lot of thoughts on this. Like the MasterChef rants, there’ll be an opinion piece on TSS once I’ve finished the show, and this will be part of it.
Tyler comes back to the house, and tells everyone that Tyler started to attack him.
Christie bursts into tears straight away, saying Ben has never been a confrontational person ever.
Marcus is like, “Mate that tickle thing wasn’t a joke. I know you think it’s funny, but we’d all be so mad if that happened to our partner.”
Everyone’s wondering what happened with Ben and Tyler.
Olga says she thinks Christie is lying about the whole pillow wall thing, even though Ken heard from Marcus about it, but Olga isn’t having it.
Tyler and Christie sit down to talk, and he apologises for what happened the night before. Christie says that it’s not usual behaviour, but is happy in a way that Ben is protective and here for the right reasons.
And Tyler’s the worst.
Christie talks about what happened with Olga, and how mad she is. Then we get a flashback where Olga said they can share a bed if there’s a pillow wall.
Guy comes for a group therapy and tells the group that Ben attache Tyler and will be spending time away from the beach mansion until they figure out what’s going on with his future in the experiment.
Everyone’s shook, but Olga’s like, “I don’t care about Ben at all.”
Jacqui calls an emergency therapy meeting to go over the sitch.
Tyler thinks that Christie is blaming him for the situation, but she’s just kinda defending him. Tyler is like Ben needs to keep away from Olga.
At the end of it all, Christie is starting to see a different side of Tyler. Christie just wants Ben to finish the experiment because it’s about her and him.
As usual, I write my recaps as I watch the episode, so there will be spelling and grammar mistakes.
