BURNING LOVE: Episode 6 - How Far Will Agnes Go?June 19, 2012
ABC's "The Bachelorette" is back this summer with its umpteenth season. Wait, how many couiples have lasted so far? But before you give up on the dating serial, Yahoo! Originals throws its hose into the fire with the premiere of "Burning Love," executive produced by Ben Stiller. Sure it's scripted, but with Ken Marino, Michael Ian Black and the funniest comediennes taking their turn as marriage material to a TV hunk, it's more entertaining.
While every other bentertainment publication has "The Bachelorette" covered, On Demand Weekly's dating show expert Kate Asche Wilson will breakdown each episode as if she were right there in the mansion.
Episode six of “Burning Love” takes us on Mark’s second one on one date. After Hayley stole his heart with her alcoholism and unconsciousness, Mark feels confident in his group of bachelorettes, and that he soon will find true love. So who gets the chance to steal Mark’s heart this episode? None other than geriatric Agnes.
At first I was certain that Agnes was going to be one of the first bachelorettes that Mark sent home. Their chance at a future is highly unlikely as Agnes suffers from Alzheimer’s and is close to death. However, their connection has kept her in the competition, and Mark wants to use this date to find out if their already blossoming relationship can turn into something more.
Agnes, played by Helen Slayton-Hughes, has balls. She’s about four times older than any of the other women in the house, but that hasn’t stopped her from dominating Mark’s attention.
Mark has planned an incredibly special one on one date with Agnes and her forty-year-old son. It’s important for Mark to see if he can really become a part of Agnes’ family and be a great bonus dad for her son Hershel. Although the date is filled with swings, bubbles, and shoulder rides Mark struggles with the fact that it might be harder for him to fit into Agnes’ life than he originally thought.
I think that although Mark claims to see beyond Agnes’ age that will be their downfall. Sure she has experience but Mark loves side boobs, and they could never have a successful physical relationship. If they ended up together Agnes would eventually meet her end, and then Mark would have to spend the rest of his life surrounded by hookers and cheap booze. He already has that at the “Burning Love” mansion so why go through all the heartbreak?
Will Agnes receive a hose or will her journey end at Sunny Acres retirement home? Watch the sixth episode of “Burning Love” to find out.
