“It’s been a very hard last few days seeing you with other people. I guess the bottom line is, I have feelings for you,” she stated. “I think I needed to see that and feel what I was feeling to solidify where I was at. I hate everything that happened. I wish it didn’t [happen], because I felt like we were so strong and everything was going so well. I regret that a lot.”

Whereas Kenny introduced up Mari’s obvious “flip flopping,” she insisted that issues had been “a lot clearer” for her at this time second.

“I felt so strongly that I got scared, because I knew what was there and I liked it. I never felt so strongly for someone so soon,” she advised him. “Then having the last few days without you, I’ve been missing you this whole time, thinking about you this whole time.”

“This is purely coincidence. If the roles were reversed, I wouldn’t feel particularly great about it, but I’d know you have to do what’s best for yourself,” he added. “I would never want to keep you from an opportunity to explore something. I’m not going to keep myself from an opportunity to explore something and see where it goes.”

“There are certain things that had to be done and certain ways I had to navigate this to bring us to this particular moment,” Brendan stated. “I can’t have a girlfriend entering this journey… It’s just not a good look. So if I tell everyone, ‘Pieper might be coming, so no one talk to me,’ I’d just be sitting, tanning, and what would happen is I would go home. And then you’d be here [without me]. So I was navigating this in a way to allow myself to potentially, hopefully, be here while you’re here.”

Pieper replied, “Everyone can hate us, but they can hate us together,” earlier than calling Brendan her “boyfriend” in a confessional.

Throughout that speak, Natasha found that Brendan and Pieper had totally different tales about after they met and the way a lot they’d frolicked previous to Paradise, and accused them of desirous to be “a TV couple.”

Pieper appeared unaffected by Brendan’s obvious lies, simply because the man in query revealed his true motives for spending time with Natasha.

“She had zero prospects otherwise. It’s not like I was keeping her from anyone,” Brendan advised somebody off digital camera of Natasha. “I don’t know if she would have a single, actual, viable prospect otherwise.” 

Natasha spoke to Brendan subsequent, a dialog throughout which he appeared to gaslight her the entire time. 

“It wasn’t an intimate relationship or a romantic relationship in any way,” Brendan advised Natasha of their relationship. “… I specifically said to you, ‘I don’t have those type of feelings for you on a romantic level, but you’re such an amazing person, I want to give you this rose and give you an opportunity to be here another couple of days and to meet people.'” 

When Natasha advised Brendan that he by no means stated that, he admitted as a lot.

“No I didn’t say that, but I said, ‘Natasha, I’m giving you this rose because at the very least you deserve to find love and if it’s not with me it can be with someone else,'” he stated. “You decided to, in my opinion, have somewhat of selective hearing.”

Brendan subsequent complained about Natasha, telling Pieper, “I was just getting so annoyed by her. I’m surprised she’s, like, still here, I guess.”

Whereas Brendan tried to disable his microphone earlier than making his subsequent assertion, it nonetheless picked up his remark.

“At this point I incriminated myself enough where it’s like, I’m screwed,” Brendan whispered, as each he and Pieper laughed.
