All that said, Abram's behavior this season was completely unacceptable and I absolutely see him as abusive now, which is saying a lot because I used to love them together and always thought Cara didn't appreciate him enough. But the way he relentlessly attacked her on the after show even after she had stopped defending herself and was pretty much just sitting there agreeing with him like "yes you're right I am indeed a shitty human being" was just disturbing and sad. ******* Bananas and Vince and Abram teaming up out of nowhere to gang up on her in a comically exaggerated show of male solidarity was probably the most disgusting and sexist thing I've seen on TV recently that didn't feature the Duggar family. And Abram telling Thomas he could "have her"??? I actually remember becoming mildly nauseous. Tl;dr my favorites totally disappointed me this season and Jenna's been the sole ray of light getting me through it. She's just sheer ******* gold. Officially a fan girl 

I agree it was disgusting how smug John and Vince looked when Abram was laying into her. Cara had no support on that stage that night. Thomas was hiding in the corner somewhere to avoid Abe's wrath. It takes two to cheat. It's not like Thomas didn't know CM was in a relationship and he was also in a relationship.

i think i read on here that the reason why he chose casey was because she was pretty and he thought it would get him a lot of screen timebut he lucked out with casey because her luggage was so lightmandi he has no excuse for lol.

Makes me think that if there is a Fresh Meat 3 that you might as well partner Wes with the ditzy blonde.

This was surprising to me but I really did not like Cara at all this season. Everything she did reeked of desperation and not even in the strategic Bananas sense. She played a frantic, messy, poorly thought-out game and she was lucky her cousin was so solid both athletically and mentally. The whole Thomas thing was gross, and justifying it as an advantageous game move was even grosser. She was obviously in amazing shape but you wouldn't know it from the way she acted all season, running around like a chicken with its head cut off. Idk if this was bad editing or what but we saw like 2.5 seconds of her actually being the impressive competitor that she is and hours of her "politicking" in a really cringe-worthy way. Like I get she badly wanted to win but there should be a sense of confidence and dignity that comes with being in peak physical condition yet she came off just as panicky/powerless as when she was a rookie with absolutely no skills or influence, circa FM II-Rivals I. All that said, Abram's behavior this season was completely unacceptable and I absolutely see him as abusive now, which is saying a lot because I used to love them together and always thought Cara didn't appreciate him enough.

i agree with your 2nd paragraph about that horrible after show and how that all went down. they literally had a group of guys going after one girl, it was tough to watch....but i disagree with your 1st paragraph about CM. i actually like her this season more then ever.. she's done amazing in every single challenge expect for the swimming one and the puzzle at the end of this weeks past challenge (but then redeemed herself with the elimination puzzle)-- politic wise she actually did really good too IMO because her and Jamie have stayed out of eliminations until they had to go against abe/mike.. and i think she's been super positive and confident this season more then ever.. plus that elimination against bananas was EVERYTHING.

I agree. Cara was shown to be a bit more dynamic these last two seasons (aka Free Agents) than in the past seasons. She's not the usualy victim here, but someone whose defended her points of views no matter how flawed, but she's human,so that's normal. She did good for being Johnny's rival and Johnny having his new cronies in the house to only go into the last two eliminations. I don't really care for the relationship drama she's had, but she's not the first to have cheated on this show, only issue was, her bf was in the house. She also had one of the better bloodlines not only as a competitor but also as a cast member. I dug her, but maybe it's because I ike flawed characters. Also like mentioned above, last elimination was everything. Her beating Bananas, her cheering for joy, and most importantly those kind words Bananas told her and spoke about her, were just pretty good closure for the Bananas/Cara rivalry.

Simply can't root for Cara anymore.  At the end of the epi she looks so desperate.  things like "now that abes gone i can finally play my game"   "i need to win so bad"

 

What Abe said, "I know you want to win, but how you do it is important as well" summerizes my feelings exactly.  Sure she wants to win, but it seems she's selling her soul to the devil and doesn't care about anything else.

Queen Cara ❤️

how is she "selling her soul"? she's playing this game amazingly.. she's hasn't made any dirty moves or promised anyone anything then took it back..the only thing you might be referring to is the whole tom thing but that had absolutely zero effect on the game and at the end of the day it really wasn't THAT bad, she made out with some guy...mtv just dramatized the crap out of it

She did sell her soul but then again her ***** isn't worth shit and no guy cept crazy Abe would pay for that so there's $0 worth of merchandise to put on sale 

she did way more than just "make out" with tom. We all know. Her hand was the demise of her competing in the last challenge and now her hand is the demise of her reputation /relationship this challenge

I loved the Cara Maria vs. Aneesa elimination! I like how they were really sweet to each other after the match too.

I hope we never, ever see or hear from *****face Maria again after the reunion.  Can she please retire now?  And after next season her Hills Have Eyes-looking cousin can also disappear.

Eoh she'll be back, I see battle of the exes in her future.......:/

Jamie is hot in my book

To each their  own, Pink.  I find him utterly disgusting. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Someone made a list of all the times Cara has been called fake and tweeted it to her lmaoo. http://stopbeingpolite.com/2016/02/07/a-comprehensive-list-of-people-who...(link is external)

Great interview wioth Cara and Jamie.

Wow that's really cool how both her and Jamie said that they were dedicating the show to their grandmother that passed. And it's interesting to know that they sent Bananas home on their grandmother's birthday so it would have been nice to see more of that. 

I hope we never, ever see or hear from *****face Maria again after the reunion.  Can she please retire now?  And after next season her Hills Have Eyes-looking cousin can also disappear.

Watching the reunion and Abe and Cara Maria need to stay away from each other unless they can completely move past what happened. Cara said that Abe has broken up with her three times since this happened. I think he loves her so much, but he can't forget what she did, so he's going back and forth between telling her he wants to be with her and ending it. Emotions are all over the place. I think Cara doing what she did only leads to them making each other more miserable because even when they are together, he will punish her for it and bring it up.  And Cara has said how unhappy she was in the relationship and that it's unhealthy, so she needs to stop loving being the victim and move on. If Abe can forgive what she did and let it go, then maybe they have a future. But I doubt it. He seems like the jealous, intense, possessive type of guy.
