I seriously think there was no point for her to be on the show. It seemed to me that she was only on there to be in the spotlight. I do not

mistysfallenangel

she seemed to be a very nice person but I am glad she was only on the ride along.She seemed to be alienating the catfish instead of making her feel comfortable and trying to bring her closer in,to land her(ha)..you couild see she noticed it herself and auto corrected it as the fish was pulling back o the line.Max is the pefect one for this mixture with Nieve,,I honestly think should Maxs carreer take off and he ended his participation on the show it would never be the same.Its not just the chemistry off both of you guys,its the understanding,the compassion and the ability to read the people they are working with.I love you both….and my hopes is one day Nieve should find the perfect woman he was looking for,and regains his trust in love again,he is such a wonderful guy,they both are,they and that is why people love the show.x0x0x0,Misty Rose
