MTV: Battle of the Exes – What’s Love Got To Do With It?

Hi all, here I am, back with another recap about MTV’s Battle of the Exes. Surprising things happened during the second episode of this season…

The usual things happened in the beginning of the episode. Tyrie and Jasmine had a fight, Johnny & Camilla put Wes and Mandi first during the challenge… That’s nothing new. What was new however was the fact that Sarah and Vinny were the winners of the “Hook Me Up” challenge. Now, who would’ve thought that gaining weight would do any good to Vinny? Certainly not me…. This episode also showed the gang going out to a club and I think most people could already predict what would be going down in there; trouble. Vinny managed to be a complete ass to Mandi and rip open her shirt (though I do have to admit that her “shirt” were mostly two stripes covering her boobs, but still) and not even thinking it was a bad thing to do. Really? Asshole. The Dome ended up being good ol’ Wes and Mandi against Naomi and Leroy. It was sort of a surprise to me that Leroy managed to win from Wes, I don’t know why haha, and Mandi winning from Naomi, well, that wasn’t too much of a surprise. Wes and Mandi did end up going home though. Although I love the entire RW – Las Vegas cast I have such a soft spot for Wes for some reason. Just like Mandi said, I believe Wes has a soft and sweet side. So, well, though I adore pretty much all Wes’ enemies, I secretly love Wes, and was said to see him go. The episode took another turn as well when Vinny was told to leave the show, and that -unfortunately- Sarah had to go because of that as well. I have never cared that much for Sarah and actually disliked Vinny since his start on the show, but I felt bad for Sarah. I did however think that putting Wes and Mandi into the elmination round after what Vinny did to Mandi was so rude. I was glad everybody thought Vinny was acting like an idiot, ’cause he was. Stupid ass, not gonna miss him at all.

+: Naomi and Leroy’s fight after the elimination round. Guys, chill. I suggest Leroy either gets into bed with Naomi or that Naomi will find herself another bed partner. Maybe she’ll perform better in the challenges too, then. Ooh, and another +: Wes’ devotion to Mandy and his whole confession about how great she is. Too cute.
-: I need more Mark and Johnny Bananas in speedos. Please?


Now, something I didn’t do last week considering I went over the couples already, but underneath I’ll give y’all my quick thoughts on the three best overall couples this week, not so much based on performance though. More on my own, perhaps hideous, thoughts.

3. Johnny and Camilla. Can’t say a bad thing about their performances and they also have their politics with them. Yet, I just don’t like Camilla. Yet. I hope she’ll win me over this season haha, we’ll see.
2. Ty and Emily. What the hell happened to the crazy Ty from Rivals & Cutthroat?! Honestly, I thought the dude was absolutely insane. Seeing him on this challenge actually makes me think he’s quite fun, and I think having Emily as a partner will make them one of the stronger teams as well.
1. Dustin and Heather. Heck yeah, these two are great. I love how everyone’s so surprised about their performances and the fact that their names haven’t even been brought up for an elimination round. And I adores Dustin’s comment about Vinny towards sending Mandi into the Dome, he’s cute. Not looking forward to next week’s episode though considering the preview for next week… Nooooo, Dustin, please stay fit and healthy! Please?!

And, like last time; this episode’s greatest quotes!
– Dustin: “Here goes Vinny, trying to be funny, but he’s actually a complete asshole. You’re basically throwing in the girl that you completely disrespected last night, ánd you’re gonna be mean about it? Come on, get over yourself, dude.” Not necessarily funny, but I think it’s awesome he said this.
– Wes: “Where did I leave my beer?” Well, yes, Mandi, that was indeed funny.
– Wes: “I just wanted to say you’re one of the best friends I’ve ever had. You’re so pretty. You’re so smart. I’ve got not a shot in hell but I can’t wait to go to sleep ’cause when I go to sleep maybe I do. You rock my world?”  Take him back Mandi.
-Paula: “Vinny is just really surprising me. Maybe I should be eating more lasagna too.” About Vinny performing well.

That’s it for this week! What did you guys think about the episode, and, how do you feel about the intro?  I think it’s kind of old-school challenge-style, back in the “Battle of the Sexes” days. I like it!
