Love in the Wild wrapped its second season last night with a happy — if somewhat suspicious — ending, as well as a possible fertility ritual targeting its final two couples.
Yanina/Ken and Michelle/Ben (hey, I just realized our final two dudes have names that rhyme) embarked on a two-day challenge involving walkie-talkies, bicycle assembly, a long hike, and the retrieval of a pair of fertility statues via paddle boat. And while Ben/Michelle grabbed a short lead midway through the final leg, somehow Ken & Yanina pulled off a come-from-behind win, even though we never actually got to see how they made up the deficit. (Was Ben really stymied for a good five minutes trying to crack open the crate using a crowbar, or did Ken and Yanina close the gap on the water? Or did the show’s producers simply want the closest, longest-standing couple to pull off the victory? We’ll never truly know.)
Anyhow, Ken and Yanina won a trip around the world (and according to a post-show update, are still together); Ben and Michelle won the consolation prize of a happy relationship (they’re still together, too, according to NBC). Beyond that, the pertinent details are all captured in the timeless form of the screen grab.
