Deandra Kannu recapitulated on Tuesday, September 27, the premiere of single in paradise in us weekly’s “Here for the Right Reasons” Podcast — giving the scoop on what it’s like when you arrive in Mexico.
“Being the first on the beach is so stressful and then you’re there all day. I don’t think people understand how hot it is in Mexico. It’s so wet. Being there as number 1 on the beach and then until the last person comes out, I’m like, ‘Oh, honey, at the end of the day your hair is gone,'” the Bachelor season 24 alum begins when she speaks serene russellthe arrival of
Deandra agreed that the people who arrive in the first batch of episodes are “set up for the biggest hit” in the series, up to a point.
“But also, it can be the most stressful because you’re forced to find something really fast. We saw a couple of people stressed about making connections from day one,” she says. “But then it’s, like, day two, you’re the fresh meat or day three and everyone’s like, ‘Ooh, I like that.’ You know, you’ve had a day to filter who you want and who you don’t want.”
As she immerses herself in her first day hookups, Deandra expresses frustrations about the contestants who don’t seem willing to date more than one person.
“I have a lot to say about people who choose the person they love and just stick with it. Because seeing that on my season, I was like, ‘We need to be a little bit more open, let’s be open,'” he says, noting that he “loves the statement,” but thinks the cast should make an effort to “try to get to know everyone.” a little”.
romeo alexander found himself drawing a line in the sand and declaring that he wanted to meet jill chin after Kira Mengistus also expressed interest. (The trio had a pre-story show, with Romeo saying that he messed things up with Jill when he kissed Kira in a club.)
“Kira, I don’t know what was going on at the beach, but I really felt bad for her: being a woman and going out and chasing a man? That’s hard enough in my opinion,” says Deandra. “So it’s like she puts herself out there trying to meet Romeo and it’s the first day and he’s like, ‘I don’t want to get to know you at all, like, I don’t even want to have this conversation. It’s the first day! That was not right in my eyes.”
She continues: “Regardless of what you had before the beach, it’s like you have a fucking conversation. [with Kira]. Just let the girl come and talk to you. Even if it’s 15 minutes, 20 minutes, she sucks it up and then goes out with Jill. you know i don’t know what [Jill] was happening with Romeo. Personally, I don’t think Jill likes Romeo. She didn’t understand the body language that she was giving, ‘I want to be with you’. And then the look after the kiss!
