"ARE YOU THE ONE?" EPISODE 13 -- NUTSA'S SHARING CIRCLE

"ARE YOU THE ONE?" EPISODE 13 -- NUTSA'S SHARING CIRCLE

Since my mommy and my daddy committed a long time ago to the act of effective parenting, I was raised to be a decent human being.  As such, I was able to muster up a bit of empathy for Kwasi when he lost whatever was left of his sanity.  I mean, the man crumbled into the lap of a producer while wailing, “I came here for love!” Who amongst us hasn’t had a moment where real love seemed unattainable?  Unfortunately, my empathy sort of shriveled up and died rather quickly because though I do happen to be a decent human being, I am also a smart human being and – though it saddens me to say this – intelligence and pragmatism kicks decency’s ass pretty much every time.  And so as a smart person, I find myself feeling exactly nothing for Kwasi as he experiences a televised breakdown because what kind of faulty planning must be involved for you to decide that your greatest chance of finding forever love will occur if you enter a house loaded with booze, exhibitionists, exhibitionists drinking booze, something called The Boom Boom Room, and fifty-three cameras?  And what insane lies did you need to tell yourself so you could become convinced that a show that’s been on for seven seasons and has ended with most of the couples breaking up both publicly and rather spectacularly would be your emotional safety net?  As I cannot even force the decent side of my brain to attempt such a leap in logic, the only thing I feel for Kwasi right now is the hope that there’s some Xanax on the premises.
