Andrew’s true colours shine at the MAFS dinner party
Yes viewers, we’re back to see just how badly Andrew and Cheryl implode.
Andrew decides the best tact to solving his relationship crisis is to act like a child and make fun of Cheryl in front of everyone at the dinner party.
“They say they’re going to commit and then they don’t ??? we all know people like that,” Andrew says in a not-too subtle dig at Cheryl. “I’m not talking about anyone here, but I got friends who say they would commit to it,” he added while looking at Cheryl.
His actions are not lost on Cheryl who observes: “Andrew’s definitely not acting like a 38-year-old. He’s acting so immature. He’s embarrassing me and embarrassing himself.”
But the night is set to get much worse as Andrew drinks more and provokes Cheryl over his celebrity Hall Pass, with Cheryl threatening “if you want to go there, I’ll go there but do not say I’m full of shit.”
“When have you ever heard me speak in that tone of voice? Loike dat. I nev-ah speak loike dat,” he says, trying to mimic her voice.
“OK so now he’s really getting nasty,” says expert Mel Schilling.
So when talk turns to the boys night and Cheryl puts Nick on the spot, it’s Andrew’s turn to look uncomfortable and his attempts to dissuade Cheryl from her so-called “attack” fail. But he needn’t have worried because Nick was not about to break the Bro Code, “honestly this all surprising to me”.
“Not once have I not had your back … you don’t do anything, you don’t even care,” Andrew cuts in. “I’m sick of getting digs that I’ve not got your back. .. yeah, I’ve got everybody’s back here so my thing is why bring it up with an angry tone like you know there’s a problem when you don’t know the truth.
“… Look there was no bagging out on the boys night, we had a good night, it was all light-hearted and here you go getting attacked by someone who doesn’t know the full story… so over this, so over this.”
Thankfully Sean is also paying attention and has decided to call “bullshit” on Andrew’s lies.
“There was a lot there throughout the night that was, you know, bagging out Cheryl. And putting Cheryl down.”
Then this from Andrew: “I think you’re trippin’, bro.” Followed shortly after by Anthony saying, “I’ve gotta disagree. I thought it was very light-hearted and there was no malice at all. It was just boys having a bit of a joke.”
Any attempts by Anthony and Andrew to suggest they mustn’t have been present when Cheryl was getting bagged out was quickly shot down by Simon and Sean.
Sean continued, dropping the “threesome” bombshell: “You know, it was a lot of banter about Cheryl. And then, you know, it come up with the comment, something about, um, you know, Lauren and Cheryl… You know, how about, well, ‘That’s good for Jonesy now. Now he can have threesomes with them’.”
Yet the twins and Anthony still rally around Andrew, with Anthony telling Cheryl possibly the biggest lie so far: “You shouldn’t doubt if Andrew’s got your back. And he’s been a gentleman the whole time. That’s the sort of person you’ve got.”
Cheryl leaves the table telling the cameras: “Tonight, his actions spoke enough about him as a person. I’m not gonna sit there and pretend that we’re best friends and nothing’s happened.
“…Andrew’s acting so immature, mimicking me. I’m just a little bit disgusted. It’s a little bit embarrassing.”
When Sharon tries convincing Andrew to apologise, his response was “Hell no”.
“Just to get it out of the way, I don’t know, so we can move on,” she suggests.
Andrew: “Sorry, girls, it wasn’t about you, the whole night, at all. The boys were being boys.”
End of. Relationship Bootcamp Fail
Earlier the pair had to answer a questionaire about each other as part of their relationship bootcamp – because nothing screams romance like a checklist.
Cheryl kicks off proceedings with a “you have to answer” to Andrew.
“OK the thing I like most about you at this point, umm…. is how assertive you are; whether it is checking in to a hotel – you get it done like that (clicks fingers) – whether it’s doing something new, you know you seem to work things out really quickly. That’s my answer.”
Uh-huh, uh-huh, yeah great thinks Cheryl as she smiles blandly. “Cool.”
Andrew: “OK my turn, what do you like most about me?”
It takes a while, but Cheryl likes that he’s “very passionate in pretty much everything you do.”
“You’re like very in your zone and focus on one thing because you want to get it done correctly.” So far these two would make great employees at Flight Centre.
But now for the juicy question of what each other likes least about the other.
“I feel like no matter what I say, you just jump to conclusions so much. It’s just frustrating,” says Cheryl.
Andrew: “I think you can be a bit rude Cheryl. Do we just get one thing?”
Cheryl is obviously unimpressed but offers Andrew the chance to keep going, but he takes the hint and moves on. But when asked how attracted he is, he delivers this corker: “Look, I think you’re attractive so I’m going to give you something like 15 per cent, something like that.”
Ouch! “Um yeah, there’s no spark,” says an ego-bruised Cheryl as she tries to have the same impact but fails miserably. “At the start I thought there was but now after homestays, definitely not.” Oh yeah, Andrew will be crying into his beer for years to come on that one, while you’ll be like ‘what 15 per cent?’
Oh but the next card is where it’s at, with the big T-word. Trust!
Andrew: “Trust is probably a bit bigger than just believing words… I’ve seen a few different sides to you so it would be hard for me to account on a certain type of Cheryl.” Oooo you snake.
Cheryl: “In different circumstances I think yeah, I’d definitely trust you but not so much in another scenario.” Yes, like the boys night!
When asked what their gut feeling was on the relationship lasting both agreed it wasn’t boding well. “It’s still a chance but I’m more leaning towards the no than the yes,” says Cheryl. Andrew agrees: “Yeah look my gut says the same thing.”
OK great so can you stop being on television now?
It seems the answer is No. Buckle up as we endure a car ride once again mulling over what Andrew can’t remember of the boys night.
“Andrew still says ‘but I’ve done nothing wrong’ and in my eyes I do feel Andrew needs to take responsibility for us to move on,” Cheryl says back at the apartment.
Andrew: “I’ve been drilled about what happened at the boys night and I’ve got no idea what Cheryl is talking about. I’ve tried to move forward I’ve tried to be the nice guy and there’s only so much you can take before it’s time to give it up, so what is that point?”
Give up NOW please!
