Love in the Wild Photo Recap: Death Row, 'Jugs,' and the Fleeting Nature of Showmances

Last week’s unexpected double elimination made it a pretty safe bet that none of the final three couples would go home on Tuesday’s installment of Love in the Wild, but the good folks at NBC did their best to squeeze a full hour’s worth of drama out of the proceedings. I’m okay with that, since it also meant more opportunities to strengthen the troika of “love connections” that have percolated over the last six weeks.

Yes, yes, I kinda sorta believe a couple of these crazy kids might make their relationships work once the season wraps. Tragic of me? Sure. But with Season 3 of Bachelor Pad only a few weeks away, my inner romantic is looking for a branch to cling to as it prepares to wade into a river of skankitude.

If you missed the episode, Ken/Yanina won the final challenge, beating out Ben/Michelle and Chase/Summer, but because that only took up 20 or so minutes, we were treated to some trumped-up tension between the latter two couples, and a couples ceremony where contestants were grilled about their partners’ personalities. Ben and Michelle triumphed, and will get a 30-second head-start in next week’s final challenge. Oh, also, no one got eliminated.

Beyond that, the pertinent details are all captured in the timeless form of the screen grab. So click through the gallery below, then hit the comments and share your thoughts on Episode 6, and which “couple” you’re rooting for in the competition/in life.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Was there no photo recap last week or did I miss it?

    Yeah, I have to say Michelle comes across way better than at first. Wasn’t sold on anything about her at all at first, but she actually seems to have one of the coolest personalities actually.
    Actually make that two of the coolest personalities.
    Hah just messing. No, at first she seemed like she’d be the most shallow and annoying of them all but that snap judgement actually appears to have been way wrong. And crazily enough I could actually see at least a couple of these lasting beyond the show, maybe even all three and a couple maybe even going for quite a while after. The setup of this show actually makes more sense than the ridiculous other dating shows that just have so many so wrong things about them.
