Tourists flock to Hawaii for its ideal weather, but the island got walloped by one hell of a storm the night Chris T. and Paige were voted into the “Are You the One?” Truth Booth. The housemates (except for Adam) decided to nominate the two in an effort to split up Chris T. and Shanley, who had previously been denied by the Truth Booth but continued to hook up anyway, and in this exclusive interview clip, the not-perfect match share why they believe they were targets, and why Shanley’s eventual explosion was actually a positive moment.
“I think people were kind of off-put by the fact that we were making this connection grow,” Shanley tells us. “It was sad to have them not understand where we were coming from with our feelings.” Chris adds that money-hungriness played a significant role in his eventual trip (or sentencing, from his perspective) to the Honeymoon Suites, and explains that if there was one consolation in having to leave Shanley behind, it was the way she expressed her anger in the aftermath of the Truth Booth’s verdict.
“I was so proud of Shanley,” he reflects. “Anything that happened that night…it deserved it. The lamp deserved to be punched, the Gatorade bottle deserved to be thrown out the window, the couches deserved to be kicked — all of it.” Good thing the house didn’t come with fine china!
