Mike & Candace

Mike & Candace


Contestant: Mike
 
Mike, 27, is an accountant from Long Island, NY. He was overweight as a child so he still has some body issues while knowing it is important not to judge people by how they look. He hopes to come on this show to meet someone who is real and not superficial.
 
Contestant: Candace
 
Candace, also 27, is a bartender from Post Falls, Idaho. She likes to do outdoor things and has no problems getting dirty. They quoted her saying she likes shooting guns, has a monster truck jeep, and is looking for a man who likes to get dirty. Her last long term relationship was a year ago and felt she was doing all the work. Now, she wants an even partnership where they connect on a soul based level.
 
Date #1: Mike & Candace
 
Candace hopes she doesn’t shame her family. How many families want their child, especially daughter, to be filmed for TV naked? They probably just accept it when you are older. Although I like the show, I wouldn’t be surprised if there is an uncensored DVD in the future.
 
Mike thought her boobs were nice and he checked them out quickly. She has no idea what to do with her hands. She said she likes to do redneck stuff. The furthest east she has been is to Wisconsin. I looked it up and that is a large distance to travel. Post Falls is basically in Washington. She said he is a city boy with a cute butt. Another zipline date. Mike said she looks good on the zipline with all those straps. I have no comments on that. Her bartender job gives her a flexible schedule. Did he just say that sitting behind a desk; he doesn’t have the opportunity to meet girls like her? There are no outdoors people in NY? He should try upstate NY. They were walking on ropes and he was encouraging her when she was nervous.
 
At the end, they were in the villa, fully clothed. They both admitted they have trouble letting people “in”. She is making sexual jokes. She asked him if he ever had sex in a pool, while they were in the pool. He said yes, she no. Now they are all over each other in the pool. It looks like they go into separate rooms.

Date #2: Mike & Diana (Voorhees, NJ)
 
Diana comes in already nervously laughing and not a pleasing laugh either. Even in the interview part, she laughs. She is spontaneous and fun but can be shy at times. The guys she typically meets are creeps or boring so she hopes this will change on this show. Mike asked her if she knew what they were doing while standing next to some croquet mallets. In the interview, she said I don’t play golf. They had to put on shoes and gloves, Diana didn’t see the point. They gave her a large white hat to wear as well. You can see them playing in this video, she is not very good at it.
 
She’s been on a naked waterslide before in Jamaica and was kicked off because she was “too drunk off rum”. The evenings at the villa are going to be interesting. She accidently hit herself in the face with a mallet and barely flinched. South Jersey girl. I think people who have lived in the areas around there know what I mean. Her last relationship ended because the guy had a kid with the girl he cheated with…nervous laugh. I thought it was a nervous laugh but she said she has been on a naked slide. Is this really dating naked thing really making her nervous? He’s asking her relationship and getting to know you on a deeper level questions and she is not participating. She thinks they connected and that he is the one. He said it was a disaster.
 
Date #2: Candace & JD (Los Angeles, CA)
 
He first introduces himself as Buck Naked. How typical. She laughed anyway. Are you really naked if you have a baseball cap on? I’m asking because that’s what he is wearing. He is a firefighter specializing in disaster response which is probably a good deal with the wildfires in California. Another joke about him being a stripper and she should bring the dollar bills. I’m already bored with him. The dated is naked bike riding around the island. She said he is more her type with being outdoorsy. He’s been in long term relationships, online dating, etc. As he gets older he realizes that sacrifices have to be made? He’s talking nonsense and she is now uninterested.
 
Jungle Villa (After Date 2)
 
Candace and Mike discuss their dates. All of a sudden the others show up. Diana said she is more of a glamor/bombshell type compared to Candace. Candace feels that Diana is blocking her from talking to Mike. She is also being bored by JD’s stories about fishing. Diana is mad that Mike and Candace left together. They are all over each other in the hammock. Diana cries while telling JD about how badly Mike is treating her. Maybe she should date JD; he likes to talk as well. JD asked Diana if she wants him to beat up Mike. She said she is single because no one takes her seriously and things like this happen to her all the time.
 
 
Date #3: Mike & Amber (Los Angeles, CA)
 
At first sight he thought she looked like a model, tall, long legs, thin. Guys always try to impress her but they are not genuine. For the date, Amber is giving him a massage with natural/edible products. She had 1 official boyfriend that said he didn’t want a relationship but then started one with someone else. Then, she said she “went lesbian”. Mike was all ready to hear about that. He wanted to know for how long. Four years and then she got over it? Ok. She meets people everywhere, online, the stoplight, etc. He is wondering how she dates so much but things don’t work out for her.
 
Date #3: Candace & Marcus (Marietta, GA)
 
She said he looks good and is well hung. He is grad student at Florida International University (no idea the major). It’s a kite flying date but they have to build their own kites. He wanted to live the college life and not be in a real relationship, but now he may be ready for a relationship. She thinks it may be a red flag but she’s willing to continue considering him. Plus, she said being young means you are teachable. Marcus said she looked like a Baywatch babe running on the beach with the kite. Isn’t that TV show old? Why does he know about that show? Marcus asks Candace to dance with him naked in the water. She said it’s the most romantic thing that has ever happened to her. Now, she is torn between Marcus and Mike.
 
Jungle Villa (After Date 3)
 
Why are the last dates both black? It just seemed odd not to stagger them. I know since I’m black I can say ask that question. Mike is torn between his last 2 dates as well. Diana is talking to Amber about her drunken crying outburst last night brought on by Mike ignoring her. Candace said she was trying to give Mike a signal to follower her. Amber is on Diana’s side and that will make up Mike’s mind. He has no idea what to say. He just met her; he has no allegiance to Diana. While Mike is dealing with them, Marcus goes to find Candace. Mike finally gets away and knocks on Candace’s door. Oops, no one answers the door.
 
 
The Decision:
 
Diana is surprised he didn’t feel the same things that she did. How weird. Mike picks Candace. He said they have a connection even though it would be a long distance relationship. Amber has never been rejected. Candace thinks Marcus may not be ready for a relationship but she didn’t like to be kept waiting by Mike. Candace picks Marcus and Diana laughs. Perfect. The host, Amy, gives Diana a look like seriously you are laughing? Diana was happy that Mike could feel what it is like to be rejected.
 
 
Updates:
 
“Marcus is planning another kite flying date with Candace in Idaho…and hopes this time he’ll be able to get it up.”
 
“Mike is hoping to go on another zipline date…And won’t leave his date hanging this time.”
