ex on the beach Season 6 returned Thursday night for its finale. Title Set sail on a relationship ship, Episode 12 featured the lovers in the final truth table. They were tasked with making the ultimate decision on whether to leave the villa with their ex, a new partner, or go on their own. But before that, Arisce was called in the hot seat.
Arisce was asked if she walked over Mike like he was a doormat. Even though we asked Arisce the question, Mike ended up answering it for her. This annoyed both contestants and viewers. He shared:
“She’s been in a situation where she’s already had a relationship, then she stops being seen as Arisce, the individual and (starts to be seen as) Arisce, the couple”
Kyra added that she has never seen Arisce hurt or disrespect Mike like he did with her. Kyra also shared that she didn’t think Arisce treated Mike like a doormat and felt that she was truly herself.
Mike continued talking without giving the ex on the beach contestant a chance to respond. Mike shared that he agreed with Kyra’s statement, but he thought Arisce saying she didn’t want him was hard for him to accept. He said it made him feel like he now had to protect her from himself and she had to protect him from herself.
When Arisce tried to share her perspective, Mike once again cut her off and asked her to let him finish. Derynn, during his confessional, wondered why Mike didn’t sit in the hot seat and answer questions himself. Other contestants, including Arisce herself, were also annoyed by her behavior.
Fans who watched the episode took to social media to say that Mike should stop talking and let Arisce share his thoughts on the questions posed.
