    YAY! All’s Well That Ends Well!

    Bets came through for the guys and a nice solution was found. Poor Stef won’t know what hit her! lol

    I’m sure Les will be thrilled to have his room back again… before he turned into a hunchback. ;) I hope she gives the guys some sort of gift, as thanks, for being such gracious hosts.


    So does this wrap tomorrow, with Al knocking on the door, asking about Bets car still being there… or??

    And as I thought, they want Tiff back in the dorms for story purposes. But Im excited. Trust and believe Bets will have the situation with Steph handled one way or the other.

    Well, that was unexpected and hyper anticlimactic! So Tiff “grows a pair(?)” and moves back to the dorm but doesn’t have to room with Stef anymore! How is that Tiff “growing a pair” in any way shape or form.

    So now what will happen? Bets will straighten Stef out or now Dez will make Tiff’s life hell?

    AND Tiff just doesn’t look like the Tiff that left for the dorm party!

    So in the long run Tiff got one thing she wanted in switching places with Bets. Bets is really making a sacrifice to deal with Stef but she might use the opportunity to get some hits for her social media platform by using Stef. Tiff and Dez will certainly be the odd couple. I wonder what Dez is going to think about this development.

    Man, Les and Gunnie sure look happy like they just hit a long shot trifecta at Santa Anita or Del Mar. Hopefully the lads have learned a lesson about getting taken advantage of but I suspect Les will still do almost anything for a pretty young lady (maybe the coupon girl makes a return) and Gunnie, well he is still the type of guy who ends up in awkward predicaments because he has never learned to say “No”! Irma never taught the kid that “No!” is a complete sentence and can be used to answer any unreasonable request……

    Okay, Bets has solved the “problem.”

    Now, Gunther, Les, and Tiffany are now beholding to her.

    And We all know that Bets collects.

    Stef won’t know what hit her.

    OTOH, Tiffany has apparently forgotten that Dez is a nudist.

    Two troubling items remain:

    1) Everything Bets is going to do to stand up to Stef, Tiffany herself COULD have done. Not exactly the makings of a future “Tycoon.”

    2) Bets and Gunther still have to deal with Al and Irma’s bullsh*t. :-)

    Finally they did the simple roommate change that solves (almost) everything! Both Bets and Tiffany will return to the dorm and Tiffany can be with someone who can actually teach her so many good things. I hope Bets has the patience to not beat Stef. But seeing how happy Gunther and Les are too will give her the strength to resist.

    OR, move back to the mansion, have Bets and Dez as roommates there, and let Stef fend for herself. You’ll all have all the room you need, it’ll be free, the house will be getting used, and Stef will learn the consequences of her actions.

    There is NO reason for Tiffany to cram herself into a dorm room when her home is within easy driving distance.

    Okay, so those who can’t stand Bets are a bit non-plusses to say the least although there is still some opaque, and to me, irrational hate. But let’s move past it. A brilliant, thoughtful, smartest adult in the room move by the “scorned” Bets here and it will be good for Tiffany who needs to not live alone in that cold, lonely mansion, if she ever is going to be a whole person and yet again Bets has been a true “friend” to Tiffany. On the conduct of Al and Irma here, I think GnK plan to punt on that for this arc but the confrontation is likely inevitable. My money is on Bets both with wiseguy and his disappointing spouse, and with Stefi, who is insufferable only. And while still loving Gunther. But I’m projecting now (lol).

    I want to say that Tif tried to stand up to Stef, with very little support from the roomies other than stupid things like the privacy zone tent, which probably made Stef feel even more entitled. Hopefully Tif will have Dez’ back better than Dez had hers.

    Les is thrilled that Tiffany is finally leaving. I don’t think he has any interest in her beyond friendship. He’s had at least a month to make a move and he never did. I think it is from seeing how Tiffany is up close. Familiarity breeds contempt.

    I’m glad this is resolved, but the execution could’ve been better. This week’s old habit of bashing Tiffany was sort of tiresome. I feel like Bets could’ve led with, “Guess who else took advantage of her roommate’s hospitality? STEF! When she did it to you! You don’t want to be like STEF do you?” Tiffany may lack self-awareness but her opinion of Stef is so low that even looking a fraction of as bad to other people as Stef looked to her would mortify her.

    I feel like it would’ve been better than just saying, “Look at how immature and greedy you are!” because, yeah she was spoiled, but the boys reinforced her belief that they liked letting her stay.

    Also Tiffany’s outburst and tears still made it so she got her way since the only thing she hated about the dorm was Stef and being dramatic about it was what made Bets decide to swap dorms. Also if Bets and Dez knew they could manage Stef’s obnoxious nonsense, it would have saved so much time for them to step up after the big feud over the “stolen” ring. Anyone would have realized that, to Tiffany, Stef’s accusatory behavior ruined any chance of amicable rapport and would have made living with her have a atmosphere of tension and resentment.

    Respectfully, why should Tiff have to “grow a pair”? She is a female, and the two people in the room with a pair are letting Bets, a female, do there dirty work. Tiff shouldn’t have to meet Bets non explicit standards for adulthood, which is begining to sound more and more like man = adult. Maybe Gunther needs to grow some overies.

    Bets could have led with this solution, instead of the tirade. Nice of her to find a solution for Tiff, and for the guys. I think they’re celebrating early though.Steff may have a few things to say about rooming with Bets, although she was impressed with the number of Bets’ vlog followers. If Kip is still around, there may be competition for the “privacy room”.

    OMG!! I think that Bets has pulled a fast one. I have to admit, I may be a victim of my own projection. She gets Tiffany to move. She looks so triumphant. se moves into the Gulag with Gunther, which is her plan. She confronts Wiseguy and. to be charitable, his weird, suffocating to her son wife, whom she loves, and where she does not like to be told what to do, she is totally unafraid of Wiseguy or ginger head, and she plans to confront them with their hypocrisy. Oh, I hope I’m wrong, but Bets is smart and no pushover. This ain’t over people. Oh, what a tangled web you weave GnK.

    Since today is Friday, I’m wondering if the arc will continue tomorrow. Meanwhile, following with my several days of “chicken” comparisons, I’ll add Tiffany to the flock of chickens, while still retaining her crybaby status. As for the two males, they went from “bwawking” to growing feathers yesterday to a full “chicken dance” today. And my opinion as far as those saying Bets should have solved this “problem” by moving in with Stef months ago – since when is Bets responsible for catering to Tiffany? She’s done enough here today as it is. And I don’t foresee Bets spending much more time at the Gulag than she did before. We must remember that it wasn’t Tiffany presence there that kept her away and/or from spending the night – it was Al and Irma laying down the law about living together that accomplished that. And Al’s action of checking on why her car is still there shows that nothing has changed that policy. Well, when the arc changes, maybe I won’t be so grumpy and critical. I can always hope, lol.

    Bets would do it, and that solves the problem! The weeny boys rejoice (for whatever reason or reasons). But, as for that “Yup. All for you.” part…well, we know better, don’t we. Bets has her motives, and they’re not all entirely altruistic….

    It bothers me enough when someone tells a guy to “grow a pair” — how does that work with women?
