    Before anyone who partook in the sweet little threesome that closed the last episode can shift the narrative to something that seems more convenient, let’s first be clear: not a bit of that “just happened.” There was ample time for any one of those pseudo adults to decide not to hop into a bed located inside of a room they know full well is rigged out with cameras. They could have come to their scattered senses in, say, the bathroom – you know, where the guy (the one who told his girlfriend she’s his one and only) was showering with another woman – or they could have halted things in the hallway leading to the bed or they could have ceased the debauchery as they stood around musing that they weren’t accustomed to threesomes. And yes, I know alcohol clouds things and I also know that’s why there’s so much alcohol on that f*cking island, but I will have far more respect if any of these desperate individuals just stands up and says, “Yup. I … Continue reading

    Things are beginning to heat up on “Temptation Island” this week as episode 5 drops tonight. We get the fallout from Dave’s threesome that ended last episode and, well, take a wild guess at how tonight’s bonfire ends. Anyway, this week we have Gavin Rocker as our guest to talk about his time on the show, his relationship with Esonica, and what he thinks of what has aired so far. Before that, I give a good 15 minutes with some “Bachelor” talk about where the show is at right now, the three women left and how two of them couldn’t be more different, how the show is really coming down on their contestants doing podcasts, and then some of the recent breakups we’ve had in Bachelor Nation. Yeah, I’ve got some thoughts on Tayshia/JPJ and the Demi/Kristian break up that probably neither of them want to hear. Oh well. As always, if you’d like to respond to the interview, please include Gavin’s Twitter handle (@GavinRocker) in your replies. Thanks again to Gavin … Continue reading

    It’s official: I’m throwing every ounce of my vicarious support at the people who had to be dragged kicking and screaming to Temptation Island. I wish they’d had it in them to fight back, to not allow this soul-corroding excursion to become even a possibility (they could have tried ranting, raving, or attacking their significant other with those awful tiny pinches that don’t actually hurt but still feel like momentary death), but I can’t entirely fault them for not being able to talk someone out of a free trip to Hawaii, especially one that comes with amenities like free alcohol and faux fame.

    While most of me cannot imagine I would even entertain the notion that the way to strengthen my romantic relationship would be by allowing my boyfriend to be twerked on by a gaggle of aspiring Instagram influencers, I have sometimes unhappily surprised myself with the sh*t I’ve been willing to accept from others. Still, a voyage that promises lifelong insecurity at the very best and complete betrayal at the very worst … Continue reading
