We thought maybe they had decided to move Tough Love to Miami because of our great beaches and beautiful weather. Well, that might have had something to do with it, but Steve Ward had something else in mind: a city of non-English speakers all in one place. The ladies first task of the day was to grab their beau that had been hand picked by Mr. Ward and hangout with them all day. There was just one catch to this challenge: none of them spoke English. Actually, they did, but we found that out later.
To watch these ladies communicate non-verbally was on the verge of sad.
Claudia was asking her date if he had pets with asking, "meow meow?" and
Brigette's attempt at Spanish inspires us to immediately order a
Rosetta Stone. Weirdly enough, this wasn't the most uncomfortable part
of the episode.
And neither was Jane eating her burger like her last meal on earth.
Every week the ladies go on dates so Steve Ward can teach them some matchmaker lesson he feels is truly life changing. This week, it was flirting. He says things like physical contact, saying a man's name in a sentence and body language are all keys to getting your man excited. This evening, he forced all the ladies to do all of those things all night long on their dates.
Oh and did we mention they had ear pieces in so Mr. Ward could tell them what to do? Before all of this got started, Leilani informed us she believes she is the worst flirt in the world. This makes us think she is the biggest liar in the world. Girl has been engaged twice and married once. She is doing something right if you ask us.
Last night, we saw girls being forced to whisper in their man's ear, ask about Prince Albert piercings, and awkwardly kiss them on the cheek. But like last week, Brigette stole the show with her crazyness. She apparently thinks she is in The Notebook and informs her boo that she is waiting for him to sweep her off her feet. Sorry, we just became nauseous even writing that out. And it didn't stop there.

Her date then asked, "Well, what's your ring size?" So maybe we had this all wrong. Girl is nuts and the date seems to be on the crazy train too, so why Steve hasn't let them ride off into the sunset together yet, we have no idea. And because this show is constantly shocking us, Brigette didn't end up in the hot seat after that insanity. Our favorite, Leilani, did. And here's why.
Little nugget Chasity almost got her ass in the seat because she won't stop her go-go dancing job. Maybe it's because we live in Miami, but we know girls dancing at LIV that make more in a weekend than we do in a month, so we get why she does it. Nonetheless, Steve forced her to quit last night and actually gave in. Have fun in the unemployment line, girl. Then, there was Leilani.
She refused to listen to Steve for most of the date, which we think just hurt his ego. We hate to laugh at her pain, but the minute she found out she was the worst of the week, girl started to ugly cry. Steve said he put her there because he explained that, well, lets direct quote, "You are from England, but you aren't a princess. Grow up." Wow, Steven, harsh much? They don't call this shit Tough Love for nothing.
