MTV’s ‘Ghosted’: Find Rachel and Whitney the world’s smallest violin
Why I’m not interested in Rachel Lindsay’s views on Chris Harrison of ‘The Bachelor’
If you’ve never watched an episode of MTV’s “Ghosted” for the past two seasons, up until this weekend, I could’ve said, “Me neither.” But a preview of a new episode piqued my interest, and I decided to go back and watch all of Season 1 before moving into the new season. Although I still don’t quite understand why someone would get on national television to find out why another person didn’t care enough about them to separate amicably (whether it’s friendship or romantic relationships), “Ghosted” intrigues me more than “Catfish.” Why? By Season 2 of eight seasons of “Catfish,” viewers could predict the end of the episode by the beginning. And it’s usually because someone didn’t feel attractive. However, the reasons why people ghost another person vary.
While there have been episodes of “Ghosted” that make me cringe (the episode with “Kayla & Shawn” made me hide my eyes like it was a horror film), Season 1 with Whitney and Tahira has been the only one that left me irate. In Episode 7, I fully agree with one college friend ghosting another. And I understand why Tahiry’s two best friends in the dog park looked completely unimpressed when Whitney was so sad that Tahira didn’t want to talk to her. Not only would my response be the same, but I’d make sure Whitney didn’t touch my damn dog either!
SPOILER ALERT: If you have not seen this episode, I’m about to ruin it for you.
