Episode Twenty-Seven:

This episode is part two of the women’s homestays, and things have escalated.

Cyrell and Nic and spending time apart following brother Ivan’s outburst at the groom. The two both seemed rather down about the whole situation, but at least three was no yelling.

Mike and Heidi were on babysitting duty, and spent the whole episode playing games with a group of kids, bonding over the experience. Mike was particularly great with the kids, creating a scavenger hunt and even letting them paint his fingernails. How cute!

Michael arrived at Martha’s parent’s house for a full-sized family dinner. The night began rather awkwardly, as her uncles decided that the best way to welcome a new member into their family was through a rating system. It seemed like the perfect set up for a dramatic encounter, however, Michael scored tens across the board and everyone was at ease. Overall it was a rather anticlimactic encounter.

Jess and Mick were formal and relatively pleasant to one another, but Mick continued to hold her at arm’s length. Jess tried to win back some trust with some overly fake compliments, but Mick’s only current interest is staring blankly into space. In fairness, I would also rather stare at a wall than try and talk to Jess.

Ning and Mark spent some time apart, but not for any dramatic reasons. Ning wanted to take the opportunity to visit her children, which Mark was highly respectful of. Absence seemed to have made the heart grow fonder, as the two engaged in some rather raunchy behaviour that night. However, things were interrupted by a stream of phone calls by Ning’s friend. Will these two ever be able to cross that rainbow bridge?

Cam and Jules had a visit from Jules’ parents, who were rather sceptical about the whole marriage before the ceremony. However the visit went wonderfully, and the couple is back to reaching new levels of disgustingly romantic behaviour.

Dan and Tamara had lunch with Tam’s aunt and cousin who treated Dan to an awkward round of twenty questions. Dan managed to keep his cool through the endeavour, despite some rather pointed comments, However, Tam’s aunt continued to look at him like something foul she found on the bottom of her shoe. And her assessment, as it turns out, is rather accurate.

Susie and Billy reached new levels of insanity in this episode. Susie’s father paid the pair a visit and offered Billy some heartfelt advice. He told his son in law to be harsher on Susie, as she would not respond to weakness. He tried that, and it absolutely blew up in his face. Well, at least he tried? Things got even worse when the couple went out to lunch with some of Susie’s friends. Billy tried to really lay into Susie and, unsurprisingly, they stood up for their friend. Billy stormed off in one of the biggest rages of the season. Once back at the house the two called the whole thing off for good, and there was an excessive amount of red-faced spluttering from Billy. We think he was trying to insult her, but it was rather hard to hear between the choked back tears.

Cutest Moment of the Episode:

Martha’s family falling absolutely head over heels in love with Michael. For them at least, this is a match made in heaven.

Most Hilarious Moment of the Episode:

Jules mentioning her and Cam’s sex life over dinner with her parents. There was a horrified silence followed by some spluttered subject changes from Cam, but Jules seemed rather unperturbed by the whole exchange. Golden.
