Yes, so stay tuned to hear US talk about the lack of nudity, how black women deserve more and dating during unprecedented times. Let's get into it. This is a podcast where two best friends talk about movies they've never seen before. I'm Isabelle and I'm Lauren and this is how have we never seen this before? This week's winner of our guests the movie contest is one of Lauren's friends from up at Syracuse, Elise. So congrats Elise, and if you want to shoutout at the beginning of one of our episodes, make sure to follow us on Instagram at how we never podcast. Hi Everyone, hello, welcome to season two of how we never seen us before. We're back. I can't believe we stuck with this this long. I'm proud of us. It can I yeah. So we're kind of shifting, not really, but sort of shifting gears for season two. We are doing TV shows, so we're going to watch trending TV shows for this season and, depending on like how long the episode is, will maybe change the format of each episode. We're not really sure yet, but for this episode we want Love Island us. So this episode was like an hour and a half long. So we're keeping it like normal. We're just going to talk about the episode and then at the end we'll just say like how I guess like if we'll keep watching it, because it's hopefully these shows are current. If they're not current, we'll just be like yeah, we'll keep going, you know. HMM, but love island is a huge time commitment. Yes, Um, I guess you should also know our background and watching Long Island. So we did so the last month that we were abroad in Australia. We instead of studying for our exams, we dedicated our time to watching Love Island UK, and apparently the American version is just as bad, if not worse. So we decided we'd give this a try and, oh my God, it was really difficult to get through. But Um, we have a lot of ground to cover, so I guess we should get right into it. Yeah, so for this season they're like recording it right now. So it's in there in quarantine, and they had the quarantine for probably like a month before they could even go to the show, but they're in Las Vegas and they're all there in a hotel. They can go to a villa because no one wants us. But honestly, just from the start of it I was like this doesn't seem as good, I'm using air quotes, as the UK version, like the UK version is so trashy and hilarious that this just doesn't have that. I don't know about that feeling, you know, when you watch it you're like wow, I'm like so ready to be immersed in this. I don't know. No, I get that. And also, Um, I was not really expecting the narrator, announcer man, to have such an annoying voice, but in a bad way, and his jokes were not as good...

...as the UK guy. I know. I miss him so much. He was hilarious. There's one one joke at the very, very end that all like say that was the only one I found funny. Yep, and the quarantine humor just it just made me queasy. Like he said like everyone will be wearing swimsuits the size of your face mask, like I do not want to be reminded that we are in quarantine here and we have to wear face masks. Yeah, and also I was just thinking about those people who like actually wear their face masks as like bathing suits are like, well, masks are mandatory. So we're like this is disgusting, or like, have you seen the pictures of people who will wear like bathing suits or underwear as a face mask? Yes, goodbye, that's even worse. I'm passing away. Okay, so the this episode starts and this host I don't know who she is, like you do. I at least, like with UK, I I knew of Caroline Flak. The only reason why you know of Caroline Flak is because you're a one direction stand. Yeah, well, at least I knew who that I feel like UK. People know her, though, because she did x factor. Yeah, but I have no idea who this arial person is. Yeah, whoever is like a fan of her is going to be really offended if they listen to this. Is Anybody? But yeah, I like and then the show started after she like drove up and did her weird though and show, and I was like all the music, can't me, don't didn't it, sorry, but like been from that. This is like two minutes and I was like this isn't the same it's like I'm not, I'm not ready to invest in this. And their villa looks exactly like the villa the UK one look like yeah, like it's all set up the same, the firepit thing, everything look the same, except they're like the cheesy quotes that are, Um, the neon lights, yes, kind of annoyed me like stilled the tea or it was all a dream. It's not UK trashy, it's like US trashy, cringe. Yeah, like there's a difference between trashy and cringe. Yeah, I feel like US love island is more cringey. Yeah, definitely, it's just not like it doesn't work for US culture. Um, but yeah, so the way I think that it just doesn't work because the censorship on US television is so annoying. I think that's, yeah, part of it too. Definitely, they were all so I feel like they are wearing clothes a lot more than the you were gonna get into that, because I have some thoughts. Okay, okay, let's get like into the show. So the girls pull up and their drivers have masks on and I was like kind of it's thank you, and I'm assuming the hotel must have been completely empty for them to at least do the intro, because there was just no cars, no one there's they're pulling up. They probably rented out the whole hotel for the staff. The islanders are quotes, and then the extra islanders that they have ready to jump in whenever. Yeah, yeah, they would have to be there the whole time. Yeah. So then they like pull up and they're wearing those awful like Mike packs that would hang around their necks the entire time. They're so ugly. Like,...

I don't know, clip on the there's like better ways to do that. But then the first two girls that pull up our Moira and Celli, and more was a shopping channel model, like that's quite a job. I feel like that'd be really fun. That would be. And then the girl I couldn't remember. It's been so long since I watched the show I couldn't remember how it works. But so the girls all arrive first, like two by two or one by one, and then the guys like pick the girls as they come in. It'll make it'll make sense, but like, I don't know who would decide to do this right in the middle of a pandemic. What do you mean? Like all right, I'm gonna go on this TV show and, and I mean if they're one hundred percent being safe, I would definitely do it. Imagine like just like chilling in a villa in Las Vegas. I guess I don't know. I was just like weird to me. I guess it just seems more exciting than what I'm doing now. whiches, nothing. Yeah, I'm in school. I don't know. Another thing that like made me laugh about this is how much they're trying to hype up being in Las Vegas right now. Like no, you're like what a beautiful view, and the camera pans to Caesar's palace, like it's not pretty. You could be on a beach in Mexico right now if this wasn't a pandemic, and you're trying to hype up the view. Yeah, just just admit it's trash and it's fine making the best out of the situation. I don't know why they didn't go to like California and run a condo on the beach or something. You know, I feel like or like Hawaii. Hawaii was like really strict, though, about people coming in. So I don't know. Yeah, you just have to have to quarantine for two weeks. But anyway. So more girls are walking in and the first girl Caitlin. She okay, she looked exactly like Moura from the side. Every time, like I saw her like a quick glance, I think she was more, more, more, more like from UK. Yeah, Oh, okay, yeah, they do look similar. And then the next guy that walks in is mackenzie. She's like bland, really big boobs, like ridiculously around. The sad thing is that the whole time she's talking about how she's more than just her looks and I was like really, really really trying to focus on what she was saying, but all I could see for her was her they were so big. I was like how do they fit in anything? But okay, so this is this is the thing that I thought like twenty minutes in, after all the girls showed up, I was like, I feel like they're just trying to replicate all the girls from the UK season that we watched because, like, by looks, by looks, Kaitlyn looks exactly like Maura. Mackenzie reminds me of a Me Moira Lucy. I'm forgetting other people and I don't remember the one girl's name from the British one, but just seen reminds me of her. Well, maybe it's just them casting, like they're trying to be quote unquote, diverse in their casting. So like they think that's what they think is diverse, which is I'm not at all. But like just like they were exactly the same. Just weird. And then like the way that justine, not like like she's treated, but the way...

...it turns out her remind me exactly of that. I was like, this is weird, dude, what happens to justine? It really makes my blood boil. It makes me so upset because it's exactly what happened last for the other season we watched. Yeah, and don't you think it's a bit peculiar how like we keeps we see this as a recurring theme for Black Women on the show. I know, like like this isn't this is this, isn't it? Like, are you kidding me? Like why wouldn't you make sure that the guys on the show are interested in black women? Yeah, it just makes me sad. But wait, I thought that you were going to bring up the fact that, like they're bathing suits cover so much more than on the UK version. No. Well, like, I was thinking about that later because I was like is she wearing clothes? But she was like wearing a bathing suit. That's like that had like sleeves, like off the shoulder sleeves, and I was like this is weird. Why do they have so many clothes? Yeah, like in the UK version you can see like everyone told but but and they don't blurt it out or anything. Yeah, in the US version everyone wears like full coverage bikinis. Yeah, it's like kind of discipline. I know because you're watching it for that. Like, if it's gonna be trashy, it's it has to be. You know, we want more nudity, I want to see some butts. Yeah, yeah, so I just like kept comparing it to the UK version and I was like I need to stop. Also, I didn't write down when justine came in. I don't know why, but justine is another girl. There's five girls. Yeah, Justine, she's I think that she's the coolest on honestly, because she's a billing coordinator with a finance degree, but she's also a dancer, a go go dancer. Yeah, like that's so cool. Like she doesn't she probably doesn't need to be, like she probably doesn't have to financially be a go go dancer, but she probably does it because it's fun. I think that weren't reminds me of Jenna Marbles, because Jenna Marbles was a good dancer. Oh Yeah, you're right. Anyway. So now all the girls are together and Ariel, whatever her name is, comes in and I don't get the point of a host on this show because they're there for maybe twenty minutes Max the entire season. But anyway, they were talking about like their types of guys and then I think it was sally or Caitlyn who was like my Type Day Malik. Oh, yeah, me do the CITLAND says that. And so then they're like it's the pairing Sarmon. Is that what they call it? I guess it's coupling up. Coupling up, that's hearing sermon. So the girls all stand in the water. I don't know why they're standing in the water. It's weird, I know. I feel like their ankles they're only and up and up to their ankles and I feel like their ankles in their feet are probably so wrinkly by the end of it. It's so weird, like just stand on the ground. I don't know. So the first boy, his name is Jeremiah. He's from Mississippi and he doesn't have a British accent, and I'm upset. He does have a strong southern accent. Yeah, and it's not the thing. He walks in and he immediately starts billy rocking and I'm like, please stop, you were fine up until that very moment. Do Not Millie rock into the ceremony, please. Yeah, it's just it's so cringey. And then he's like, yeah, I'm from a small town where everyone has been with everyone. That...

...kind of reminds me of our town. Hmm, all her strong school. Yeah, yeah, this, this part gives me like so much second hand it is an embarrassment. Is it like just like being uncomfortable. I was like screw beaming while I was sitting down, like Oh, like for every guy, or two of them, one person steps forward, like no one wants to step forward. There was one where no one stepped forward. There were three. Yeah, like how do you? Oh my God, I'd feel so bad about myself. Same. Well, okay, the worst part, the worst one was Jeremiah, because no one steps forward for Jeremiah, except Justine, and then pick her, doesn't pick her, and then, and then, at the end of the coupling up, someone takes so Jeremiah Picks Selly, and at the end of the coupling up someone else picks sully, sellless. So someone else picks selly. So Jeremiah ends up with justine because no one picked her. That's so uncomfortable and makes me want to die. That's what happened with the other girl. This is exactly what happened to you, Wanda, season five. Yeah, but like, why does this happen? Like the fact that it happened to two black girls makes me upset, I know, like, and they're both amazing people, like you. Want to was a biologist. Yeah, she was incredibly smart. She was so beautiful, Yep, and everyone just kept passing on her and I felt awful, like she deserves someone so good. Okay, she deserved none of those boys because they're all trash. Yeah, they're trash, but like she she should have been picked, and I it's still bothers me. I know the fact that this is such a reoccurring theme on Love Island means that there is a huge issue here. Yeah, I haven't seen any of the other seasons, like I tried to, but I couldn't get into it because it just didn't have the same feeling of sitting on our discussing couch and just busy it all day, smelly couch. But yeah, so justine step forward for Jeremiah. He didn't picker. He picks Ellie. And then the next person who comes in is his name is James, but I forgot his name because I stopped and then I restarted like later in the day and I kept writing. Now and Chris. So if I say Chris, I mean James. He does look like a Chris. I don't know, like where I even got that name, because there's no one named Chris on the show. Maybe I was thinking of Chris from maybe his name wasn't even Chris, I don't know, I don't know. But yeah, no one step forward for James Either. Yep, he ended up with Moira and they seem pretty cute like later. Yeah, like they're both really cringey and awkward, but I think it works. Reminds me of Curtis and amy, Oh yeah, but then also reminds me of Lucy and whatever his name is, because they were like so stuck on each other. From the JOE was a Joe. I have no idea who he is. Lucy's the one who like tried to get with, with the guy that molly may is with. Oh yeah, yeah, that's what it reminded me of. But yeah, anyway. And then so no one steps for for James, he ends up with Mara. So every time that like, what's her name? Ariel? Oh, yeah, she says the same thing every time. She's like, I'm gonna make this really...

...easy for you. Look, excuse me, like no one asked you. But she does ask Um, everyone who like doesn't step forward why they didn't step forward, which is just really demeaning to do in front of the person who you just rejected. So she asks Moira why she didn't step forward and she goes, I'm just looking for an entry, she goes, I'm just looking for an instant connection with someone. How are you going to make an instant connection with someone by like spotting them like twenty feet away? That's not how that works. You that's that was the one, and it's an instant connection. That's what they all said, though. They were like yeah, I'm like looking for that as soon as they walk in, like I'm like that's the person, but like you, sorry, your instant connection is just based off of looks. Yeah, but that's what this whole shows based off of. Any yeah, although one thing I brought up later my notes. But like I feel like they all look more natural, like not even like they like fillers or whatever. I don't care about that, but I feel like there's no filter on them at all times. Like so they have perfect skin. They use filters on the other shows? I don't know, but like they just seem too perfect all the time. Yeah, but like I think you could see sally's like when she takes her make up off of the they show her like acne scars and they sing with them. Mackenzie. Yeah, it makes me happy to know that these are like real people who also like don't have the best skin or like are just normal. That's the one thing that I think I prefer about this one. But that's about it. But yeah, so the next guy is trey, and in his little intro thing he's like, yeah, I'm a player, like who wants to admit that? Yeah, while he's like also talking about how much of a player he is, sexy and I know it is playing by Lm f A. Oh, and it just really throws off the VIBE, because I don't think that song really emulates player vibes. He's also laying in a car with like fake bubbles, like making it look like he's going to make clothes on. Oh, I thought they were like it was like a ball pit, but in yeah, like I was the kind of like bubbles. They're blue, but like it was just like covering his bathing suit short because or whatever. I was like this, this isn't it? Yeah, and then but also compares himself to a dog on a leash, like this, is that how you're going to talk about your approach to getting a girlfriend? It's very hmm, I don't believe you when you say that you're done being a player. Yeah, and he's definitely not, but no one steps forwards to great either. I wanted to die. I was like what are you doing? And then someone says he has dangerous eyes. What's yeah, I think that's Caitlin. I was like, what are you talking about? How can I be dangerous? But so trays, the one who took Selli from Jeremiah. So that means Jeremiah has to wait on the side until everyone else is done and then he gets whoever's loved. Yeah, Oh, and Um, right before it cuts to commercial, you can hear someone screaming no please. That's awkward. Again hear that someone the straight up screaming no please. Well, he was just standing there putting himself out there, but that's awful. So the next guy, his name is conn are. Apparently he's twenty three or something. He doesn't look none of these people. They are all the guys are like young, twenty two and twenty three. They look like they're in their mid S. yeah, it's a facial hair. I think it's like you.

I'm sorry, but like your you're twenty two. You don't look as old as any of those people. Know I look like an infant. There's something about connor that just screams like solid dude. I wrote. He just seems annoying. Oh, he seems annoying, but he's just like Sawid Dude, like there's nothing perhaps going on up there. Mackenzie steps forward for him. Right. Yeah, yeah, so this is one of the others that like actually get some money, but it's really annoying because there's no drama like in the UK one, like two people will step at the same time, three people will step up at the same time, or like a girl who's already with someone will step up. HMM, and there's none of that. I think that okay from what I've watched of this show so far and kind of what I've experienced like with like different like with American girls versus like girls from other countries. Um, American girls, at the very start of getting to know them, they play Super Nice and they will like and will pretend to be so nice to you and pretend to be your best friend and like, the first day you meet them, will be like, Oh my God, I love you, let's hug, and then Um, like the second like you really get to know them, like you, you sometimes see not so nice side. But the UK, UK girls, I feel like, or Australian girls, like you're straight up, straight up. They'll be like I don't I don't like you at all, like stop pretending to be my friend. Yeah, I feel like though, Caitlyn, I think she's real, like because she's older than the rest of them. She's twenty seven, and I think just feak from the way she acts. I don't know. I think she's I think she's my favorite and she's just like a very real person. Yeah, no, I thought so too, but I just think, like of course we think. All these girls seem really nice at first. Yeah, it'll like I'll fall apart later. Yeah, but Um, after Mackenzie steps forward for Connor, all the girls are like nitpicking why they didn't pick him, like Oh, I don't like your facial hair. Oh, I just don't like what you look like. Like that's awful, especially for her. Like she was like I I like you, I'm going to step forward. Yeah, but then I also wrote down I hate his flip flops. Then, so the next person's Carrington, and the only person I know whose name is Carrington is, like it's a girl named in my mind, like like can't. I don't know what her last name is. She's some like influencer or whatever, but he seems so full of himself. I hated him. He walks in and the first thing he says to a group of beautiful women and his future Bros is where the girls at? Like I hate him. He's just like awful. And then he says he's from Utah, like someone from Utah should not be that arrogant. Who are from U Tall be quiet. Yeah, I don't like him at all. But he gets paired up with CAITLIN and I'm like no, thank you, not for her, Um, not for anyone. And so that's like it seems like it's the end of the coupling up. And so Jeremiah goes with just seen and then she's like, but there's an extra boy. So this guy named Johnny comes in and like, I don't know, he seems kind of Nice,...

...but I feel like he's going to be awful, like Um, Michael from like he seemed good at first and then, and this is this is where I started calling James Chris. I wrote you. Chris did that peck thing, like you know, like the rock does that. Oh yeah, I was like, why are you flesh off? Okay, yeah. Also, what what bothers me about Johnny? Okay, I see right through it. When a guy says that he has sisters and he likes to treat women like he treated sisters, that's what he's saying to get you to sleep with him. He he does not care about you and he's just going to say that, like that's his line to pull women. Yeah, I don't. I don't I don't trust him either. So now they're like getting to know each other and whatever. But the then the girls are talking about their their guys that they've just been paired up with, and they don't remember their names, like you could tell when they're talking to each other. Sues, like so, how's your guy and they're like, oh, he seems nice, like they don't remember their name. I really like how they're calling them sweet, like you've known him for ten seconds, you don't even know his name. How do you know that he's sweet? He's probably an awful person. Yeah, and also all their cups are labeled so they don't get curled like in in the like they get these water bottles and they in the UK when they did that too, but they didn't have like their names on every cup. Yeah, I'm just like, Oh my God, that's funny. So then ever goes back outside. I don't know why they went inside to begin with. Yeah, I don't even maybe because it's summer in Vegas, so it is a thousand degrees out. They're sweating like crazy. It's Gross, I know. I feel so bad for them. I don't understand how any of them are wearing makeup like mine would just like melt off, like I would wipe my forehead and would just be orange. I don't know why they're not like in the pool or anything to like just cool off. Yeah, so it cuts to connor and Mackenzie talking and they're both like well, she's like yeah, I like sports, and he's like, wow, you're my dream girl. Then she's like, I haven't been in a relationship in eight months, and then he says me, neither. It's fate. Yeah, you like sports and you were in relationship eight months ago. You guys are meant for each other. The yeah, everyone's saying like Oh, yeah, we have so much in common. Okay, okay. Sally's talking about how she was a head cheerleader. She definitely would have bullied us if we want to high school with her. We didn't even have two years in high school. Yeah, that's only our high school was but a just set in Jeremiah. They're definitely they're talking about everyone else but themselves. Yeah, so it's like that's when I was really like, Oh, this is gonna turn into bet you on day situation. M Jeremiah has literally no chat, no chat, not once, not once in this entire episode. Did they say you want to have a chat? I know I was so upset. Can I pull you in for a chat? The worst. I'm so sorry to anyone who's offended by that. Yeah, but like I think Moire and Chris, it's not Christians. We're in James are cute, though, yes, because...

...they're talking about like just like how awkward and like where they are. I think I'm cute. I know they I honestly, I'm rooting for them at the moment. I think they're going to be good for a while, but I also think someone's going to come in for Kaitlyn. It's going to be perfect. Her head's gonna turn. Yeah, at this point it's nighttime and they're they're partying, which is just changing into different clothes and doing the same thing they were doing before, and everyone's dancing and twerking to watermelon sugar high. Please don't use Harry's music in this show because he's too pure for you. It was weird. Did I say watermelon sugar I? Yeah, Oh my God, please just say my fan. I'm so fake. Watermelons to Gir Oh my God, I'm never going to live this down. Oh No, no, so ups she's gonna cry. Okay, sorry about that, but yes, okay. So, so Johnny's like talking to another girl. It's either Kaitlyn or sally. I didn't real town belly. Okay, I just was upset by what he said. He was like talking about where he's from and he was like, yeah, I'm from Virginia. It's like the first state. Like I wrote, Johnny, you're an idiot. He is dumb. Well, not only is not the first thing, isn't Delaware the first state? Yeah, it's making sure. Yeah, and also sally or Kaitlyn or whoever he was talking to thinks that people from Virginia aren't real, that you've never met someone from Virginia, but you live under a rock. The only people who aren't real are the people who live in Central Jersey. Oh my God, that was a joke. To anyone listening, you're real. I'm sorry, I'm so a girl walks by, I forget who it is, and hands her her water bottle. Oh yeah, and Um, she goes to drink out of it and it starts leaking and I think definitely sabotage. But then she like smoothly recovers by saying, Oh no, by saying, Um, you're making me wet already. You. Yeah, how does that not? Yeah, and like Johnny's like ask the girl who walks by. He's like, so, where's mine? He says that to and then one of the boys walks up with the water, his water bottle, and I was just like, I really hope there's a real good romance. I know Miss Susan like that. That's what made it. Like Tommy and Curtis and like just all of them. It was so like they were as good as like all the relationships. Yeah, I think I love I love watching it for like I love watching how I don't want to say I love watching Love Island. That I enjoy watching love island to see like friendships grow and continue after the show, that you could tell that they're like a genuine friendships that they build. So after they're like talking, there they're playing suck and blow. These are like full and adults, and that I don't know. Okay, those people playing suck and blow or probably the only people in the world right now playing suck and blow during a pandemic. Think about how interesting that is. Yeah, they're also really bad at it. And nope, James Gets met like see Chris, they hey has to like or more more, has to kiss someone else and he gets really jealous. Yeah, I was like drama, drama, please, please give me something here. And every time they drop the card there's like a thing on the back. So like someone else has to like a dance, kind of like I feel...

...like it's like truth or dare more than I don't know. But anyway, after that, Caitlyn is going to talk to other guys and you can see like Carrington freaking out. He's like stress and I think he she's like talking to tray at this point and he's like, Oh no, is it Carrington? Well, okay, I do have something to say about her first conversation. Yeah, go ahead. Okay, so Johnny Pulls Kitlyn aside and they start chatting and she's talking about how her eyes changed colors. Oh my God, I can help but cringe, because sometimes I say that my eyes change from green to gray to blue and I can't believe how awful that sounds hearing someone else say it, and therefore will be passing away and never think. I know that's exactly what I was thinking, though. was like, Damn, mine do that too. We're just so narcissistic. I'm not unique. Yeah, I was just Oh, that made me hate myself. But then Carrington steps in and he pulls Caitlyn aside and admits that he is jealous and that he actually wants to get to know her, and they kiss. Is it nasty kiss, but like the whole time he's talking about her, he's not like talking to her. He's looking straight ahead and will not look her in the eye. He's just like wiping sweat away from his faith the entire time. Yep, I feel bad for the people. They should have picked a better location on I know, like really lost Vegas, a desert. Are you serious? I like, as much as I hated Carrington at the beginning, I really hope that he was just putting on a show to get our attention and that he actually is maybe a nice person once we get to know him a little bit. But he's but I feel like he only kiss Kaitlyn because Johnny was looking. Yeah, Yep, I think he thinks of the show is a competition right now, because he he literally said the other guys are his competition. But he yeah, there's so much tongue in the kiss. It's just it's just not right. I felt so wrong watching it. Yeah, and then it like, I feel like for this at least this ten fifteen minutes like section, it's they just following Kitlyn around as she like talks to each boy, and I was like, what, is this the Caitlyn show? Like what? No, it's just interesting how all the guys are into her. I think it's because she's older, like she's twenty seven and all the other girls are twenty two, twenty three, twenty four, and the guys are all really young too, like none of the guys are older. I wasn't even paying attention to ages. Honestly, that makes sense, I guess. I also thought it was because, like guys have that like hunter instinct where they love, they love like a chase. I'm like, Oh, I'm over generalizing right now, like I realized that, I'll admitted. But like guys like to have competition and a chase. I feel like she's not like making them chase her, though she's. She's really just talking to all of them, except the guys keep going in trying to make out with her. Yeah, like trade does it too well. I mean like she's not doing it intentionally, she's just doing. She's just getting to know people something like. I don't mean her, I mean the guys. Yeah, I know, but what I'm saying is that the guys are seeing like a guy the got one guy, will see two guys going after Kaitlyn and me like Oh, there's something about her, like my love a change gonna go after her like. That's kind of what I'm talking about. Like it's not get her her like intentionally doing anything, she's just she's just...

...living life. That's getting these men. But yeah, so, like she's talking to train and train makes out with her two and it's also kind of gross. Oh, one thing, I did not miss the kissing noises. It's so disgusting because the mics are so close. Like can they turn it down for that? I don't know. It's just cringe. It's so gross. And then, okay, so tray is talking. Treys also talking to Kaitlyn before he like goes in for the kiss and he's like, Oh, when were you born, and she says June seven. He why did I I know I remember that, and he was Oh, so you're a Gemini. There is no way that he he didn't overhear her talking about that and just decided to bring it up to like he there's no way. He also knew that Sagittarius is in Gemini's are a great match like that. Yeah, yeah, but like that, that's what he says right before they kiss to like he's talking about how like good of a pair Sagittarius and Gemini's are. That's why our sagittarious moons and are Gemini and Leo Sons Make US compare. Wanted to know our birth our birth chart. But yeah, so after we finish the CAITLYN show, McKenzie and Connor are talking and her voice is so annoying. I don't have a problem with her voice. I had a problem with connors voice this like it was he he just keeps talking about how, like he's not good enough for her, like he doesn't think he's attractive. He he's like yeah, that was weird. Hit like the way he was talking was annoying and find his voice annoying. I found both annoying. Like the most unattractive thing in a man is when he like brings himself down, like have some confidence. Yeah, like it self deprecating humors. Okay, but like all, I don't know, like you're getting to know her. Why it would you be like, I'm not, I don't know. Yeah, and she's also talking about how like she's waiting for the right moment to share a kiss with him, and he's like yeah, me too, and she's basically saying, like, you idiot, kiss me, do it, because he doesn't have any confidence. Yeah, uh, the the guys, like I feel like the guys on here are all putting up a front, whereas the guys in the UK when are all really that narcissistic and we'll just do it. Yeah, yeah, all of these guys seem kind of like insecurity down, like Carrington and connor especially, and it's just like like we can see right through it, like within this first episode. Oh, but then after this, I felt so bad because now just sting is crying about how no one's gonna like want to be with her nose like you one day, all over again, and I'm so it's said like it's the first night. She is simply too much of a queen for these simple boys. I know, like, excuse me, ma'am, you indeed dropped your crown. Pick it up, because you are a queen. Justine, like I love her, she deserves better and it's so it's so like. Okay, this was something that kind of bothered me. The Way Mackenzie's like it's nice that Mackenzie's talking to her and is like I'm gonna be here for you, but Mackenzie says that she intimidates like that, just seine intimidates the boys, and that's why none of them are approaching her. What is that supposed to mean?...

Does that? Does that not strike you as something that has a double meaning? Perhaps? Yeah, I get I can definitely see that. I've I've like to like give her the benefit of a doubt and be like you're super smart, you're super pretty, like you're the whole package. But I yeah, yeah, it's that kind of that wording was a bit off there. Like she probably didn't mean any harm by it, but Um, she shouldn't think a little bit more wisely about what she says? Yeah, definitely. I don't know what I was saying here. I Like I didn't put any, like a lot of details in my notes because they're just sitting in a room all day. So I'm a little confused. I have just a much notes, if not more, than a movie that we review. Like my next thing is Johnny's so lonely. Oh, they're going to bed. I got it. So in Love Island, as soon as your couple toop you have like you sleep in the same bed together. So they're all just getting cozy in bed. But Johnny's alone. Yeah, he looks really sad. Yeah, he does look sad, but I kind of like have some of them put up a barrier of pillows first night sleeping with each other. I think that's kind of cute. But yeah, like the ones that are like sharing their first intimate moments as a couple. Um, just like watching that, like watching them like laying bed like talking to each other, kind of makes me feel uneasy. Do Remember when they they molly and Tommy? We're literally just going at it and they have it on TV. Yeah, like full on having sex on TV. That was that was uncomfortable. I don't think they would ever show that in the American version, but definitely, like, I've watched like one or two episodes of Geordie shore and you can also see them like straight up having sex on TV. You made me watch like an episode of Jordy. That was something else. So way your review. That, my God, we should talk about that too. Jody Shure isn't trending. Drink. Sure, so old, but it's so funny. Scott et sorry, sorry, sorry, okay, we're getting off track here. Um, UM, so it's like commercial and them it's the next morning. Yeah, and Caitlyn's like, I don't know if she's just like talking to a guy or it's her like solo thing, and she's like she's just like, yeah, I want to get to know these guys. And she also wants to tell sally that tray kissed her. She's like, I'm not trying to hide it from her, I did, like, I know we've all just met. I just want her to know that this happened like that made me think that Caitlyn is, I don't know, maybe like a girl's girl, but also just like she's not like trying to be sneaky, like I don't know, I felt like that was good. She's not a snake snick. Yeah, and then we see Chris and moyer talking and he keeps a cryptic no, James and warmer talking us. I'm sorry, I don't know. Gift so much, you've gone fast, so much. Okay, so, Um, okay. So Kaitlyn goes in to tell sally that her...

...makeout sash with Trey and she's like, Um, he's kind of like a big brother to me, so I don't know why we did that. I'm like, okay, Kaitlyn, that's kind of weird. He's also for years younger than you. Yeah, so I'm not quite sure about that. And she also explains that she does not like Carrington and she friend zoned him, which is sad news for Carrington, but maybe he should have not used full tongue when they were kissing. Yeah, that was like real, real nasty. And then she tells sally and Sally doesn't really care. She's like, oh, that's fine, yeah, it's not really like I'm not committed to him. And then Johnny is sitting by the pool and explains that his top two are Selli and Kitlyn, and then Johnny also goes to talk to Kaitlyn. Carrington throws ball at him and it hits them both. I thought was probably intentional. Okay, and now we're at James and Moira. Okay, I wrote. Okay, Chris just keeps saying wow, and then I was like his name is definitely not Chris, and I'm confused. I don't always name like I pulled that name out of a hat. I don't know, I don't know, I don't know, but he just kept saying wow, wow. Don't know, I don't know why. He said it like over and over again, probably eight times within the span of thirty seconds. Maybe he's just doing his own Wilson impression. He's really just trying to woo Mora. Wow. All Right, UM, yeah, they're kind you know, but I kind of like it. They're they're just like strange people. And then there's a lot of loud kissing noises. Yeah, and then Um, tray and cellier having a chat. And Yeah, she explains that she doesn't know who she likes more. But this is also when I was like, why do they have so many clothes on? Because this is where she's wearing this like kind of t shirty, like crop top bathing suits, just like where's the barely there? Where is the nudity, the objectification of these people? Yeah, and I feel like all the girls, like, not all of them, but everyone, like likes Johnny and it's kind of like not like Oh what, he's mine, but there's like a little bit of a who gets Johnny, you know. HMM, and they get and I've got a text. Like he gets. Well, that's not yet, but like he gets to steal a girls and night johnny does. And I was confused, though, because I thought the girls got to pick first, like I forgot how the show worked for a minute and I was like, oh, since the boys got to pick the girls at the first coupling thing, now the girls get to pick the guy they want to be with. But it turns out johnny gets to pick a girl. I was all confused. Yeah, I think it's just because he's the newcomer, so he's not going to be left single, like with yet like really a chance of like getting to know people, like with one day of getting to know people, that's not enough time for the girls to pick someone else. Yeah, Oh, wait, before before the that, I got a text. Yeah, this is...

...a little bit. Yeah, the one thing funny that the narrator said it is when Mackenzie's trying to talk to connor and they're all dressed up, because now it's like the ceremony thing, and he's like, yeah, they're gonna sit down and have a chat, not that they're. Somebody says that part but he's like, as soon as Mackenzie finds out house stools work. Yeah, it's like it's it has like a back and like arms on the stool, which is like different. First all, I guess, as she like goes to sit down, but like the back, sit at the back part, and she's like trying to move it around. Yeah, that was the only funny thing. He's like yeah, okay, so now it's time for Johnny to make the big decision. So right, right as he's like I'm want to cheat, foot find my speaking in a British accent, and he's like that someone country. I want to choose this girl because she's fits funny, has good chat. Right as he's about to say the name, I get my fifty colon guard commercial. Did you Marcel? I got. I got that one once. I didn't get that one a lot. I got. I got every time and I wanted to scream like because I don't want you to examine my stool. Believe feel well, there's so many commercials in Love Island it's insane. I know we were probably watching that with commercials for two hours. MMM, insane. Yeah, and they always make it so dramatic when you like goes to say their name. Oh, it's just me out and I honestly I thought was going to be Kaitlyn. I was wrong. It was sully. Yeah, so Johnny Cheeses Sally, Kitlyn Looks Pissed, and then Um Carrington and Jeremiah get text that they're going on dates, hot tub dates, and you see Jeremiah like fall to the ground he's so excited, right in front of Justine. I know I was like of course, and like right before this I totally skipped over it. But Jeremiah and just see were talking. They were like, I don't she was like I should like be giving you a shot. Like I felt like more friendship ish when I we first like were paired together, but like, I don't know why, like why not give you a shot, like we should like see where this goes. I have feel great vibes with you or whatever. And then of course Jeremiah is the one who gets on WHO's going on a date with a new girl. Yep, Yep, I feel like that. You did not have to do that to justine. You could have given Um who tray, you could have given tray that date. But no, I know, like you specifically did that to just see ANA makes me upset. Yeah, the producers need to care more about black women on the show and have more than just one. Well, one of the new girls is a one of the new women is is black, but we don't really see I guess that the new episode was last night actually, but so I don't know what happened. But yeah, and I just think that, like the like in the UK when they call like the girls from the very start, that kind of like make it almost the whole way to the end, like the Oge's like there's just should be more than one black girl. Oh Gee. Yeah, I agree. They did have Sally's Latina, which is cool. Yeah, but that's out a representation. Yeah, what I think would make this...

...show like ten times better is if everone on the show was just like Pant Sexual. It was just a free frill. I was thinking, like they should do something like that. I feel like that would be cool. That would be thing. You never know, everybody could just like pair of with anybody and it's just that would be chaotic but really good. Yeah, I that would be my ideal show, like I would eat that up. Oh, but that's the end of the episode. I like that's when they get those texts that they're going on dates in the girls. That's where it ends. Oh yeah, that's that's basically it. Yeah, disappointing, to say the least. I know, I'm like, I loved investing my time in the UK one like, yeah, as much as I shouldn't admit that, like it was so good, it was so funny, and I don't know how they're gonna do it. Like they're stuck in the entire time, like like, which is good, like yeah, like you shouldn't be going anywhere, but like, like how are you gonna go on dates? Like that's like one of the things where people really get to know each other. They get to go do something exactly and like, I don't know, I don't know how it's going to work. Yeah, well, even if this was just set in California and they rented like a huge, like two huge villas on the beach, like one for like staff and then the other one for like the actually cast, but then also cause them more. Oh Yeah, well, we don't cause some more can be just left out for the season, but Um, and then like have have like a professional boat driver stay with them too, and just like that way they can like go on like boat dates and like beach dates stuff like that. Like, I don't know why they picked Vegas. Yeah, it's such a weird place to pick. Like it's not like you can go to the casinos or whatever, like I'man you can, but they're not going to. Yeah, I just think that like if they had chosen like the beach or something like a beach town anywhere in the US and the summer, like, they would have had more to work with and it would have been just as safe. Yeah, I want to be committed to this show, but I can't be because they don't treat just seen right and it's not trashy enough, and I'll just rewatch the UK one, I know. I also don't want to pay for CBS all access. Sorry, Yep, that's the other thing. It was so hard to like get into this site. I know, I don't know. It's weird. Yeah, yeah, I don't know. I think I'll probably watch it some more by no, but okay, my the last question. Well, we can talk more if you want, but another question. What would I have for you upon watching this show? Um, is, can I pull you in full chat? Course, love. All right, Babes. Sorry about our bad British accents. We're not. I had just turned turn my head. Who Do you think you off? Congress? I Yep, being childish, childish, child is, childish, childish. Can't say it. I'm so bad at British accents. There's just so many. I know. Honestly. Is there a new is there a new UK one? I'll watch that. I'll like keep watching that. No, that's why we have to watch the US one because it never got renewed for this season because of coronavirus.

Maybe they'll start it up now because they're open as a country, but they go to Spain, so I don't know. Well, anyway, back to love island. I will probably watch a few more episodes and if I do watch a few more episodes, maybe I'll get to invest in. Have to watch the rest, even though I don't want to, but it's literally the only live TV we can watch right now. Yeah, besides like Sports, Sports, Sports. There's discussing my face right now. Yeah, so who knows what shows going to be on next week that we should watch? If you have any shows that you think are absolutely amazing that we need to watch? Besides the Avatar one, because learning we watch SA and I'm in the middle of it. Let us know, because we just love some some good old, hopefully trashy, reality TV shows. please. Yeah, but, yeah, I think that's it for this week. I'm excited to be back. The same, I feel so good to be back and chatting with you. I miss having a chat with you. Yeah, me too. Well, too, that's what you sounded like. You sounded so unenthusiastic to talk to me, talk to this bitch. Okay, well, kidding, I'm love being back now that my heart's broken.
