The couple that extracts together, stays together.

Happily ever after… yeah, right. I mean, yeah, right! The first season of What Chilli Wants was reality television’s most chaste dating adventure: separate bedrooms, no on-camera kisses, lots of questions about religion and God. After her pickiness and take-things-slow-ness last season, I thought that when she finally picked the one, he’d be THE ONE. Alas, she’s still single at the open of What Chilli Wants 2. I’m so naïve.

Tionna, who looks very pretty and very pissed off for the season premiere, doesn’t over-analyze Chilli’s dating problems: “It was that damn checklist,” she spits.

To recap, Chilli’s future mate:

– Can’t drink or smoke
– Has to love God
– Has to be superfine
– Can’t eat pork

There was also the “can’t be a little man” requirement, which is no little requirement indeed. Tionna must expand to a nationwide search this season because Atlanta is too small a dating pool for Smalls. By season three she will be going door-to-door like the Census.

Another difference between this season and last: Tionna says she plans on listening to Chilli more. Chilli for her part makes no such changes or promises. In fact, it’s going to be even harder to find her a husband this season, because of this guy:

whatchilliwants201-00023

Floyd Mayweather. He ended his run by standing Chilli up for a date early in the season. It helped convince Chilli that he wasn’t worth waiting for. Somehow he’s “still in the picture.” Literally. He will be all over the pictures this season. It’s frustrating for Tionna, because he’s like a hot, hot cancer that’s attached himself to Chilli.

“Today I’m going to the OB-GYN,” Chilli says at the start of the next segment. Already, things are heating up! Chilli is 39 and wants to have another child. “Time is of the essence,” her gynecologist warns her. She may look 25, but they say you can always tell a woman’s age by the wrinkles on her hands and her uterus.

Next her doctor reveals this chart:

whatchilliwants201-00014

It shows your diminishing chance of pregnancy as you get older. Note how it slopes down and down, until it probably goes below zero, then straight to hell.

He recommends getting a sperm donor and suggests that she could even look at a catalog of potential inseminators. Such is life at 39: looking at all men as potential sources for sperms. She refuses to do this. Next suggestion: freezing her eggs and holding them until she finds a guy she likes, then they can be put into her uterus, all fertilized and pasteurized and everything. She calls this fairly standard fertility procedure “something out of a horror movie.”

Instead Chilli wants to do it “the old fashioned way.” You know, meet a guy, date him on cable TV. Besides, if she’s going to objectively look at a catalog of men for the purpose of having a child, that catalog is going to come from Tionna.

Then we hear from Tionna, who explains her methods this time around while a montage of incredibly good-looking guys rolls. Tionna will take their photos and send them back to Chilli to peruse. It’s pretty much a sperm donor catalog, with a lot of extra steps. Anyway, a preview of the men we’ll meet this season:

Moving on! Floyd and Chilli go to get joint facials. She says that even though he stood her up she forgives him because he had “personal stuff” going on. Funny how she doesn’t compromise with anyone except this guy. You know, the one guy who is not going to compromise and commit to her. “If Floyd could be like this all the time, this is the guy I want to be with forever,” she says. As an example of his charm, she says she went to the OB-GYN and he’s like:

Uterus or juicebox, Chilli still wants a baby in it. He tells her that she can have kids whenever she wants (Floyd is also a doctor, haven’t you heard?), and she asks if he wants more babies. He won’t answer. But he does tell her any man that gets to be with her is lucky. Very romantic.

Very romantic!

Floyd evades her over and over again, claiming he doesn’t want to be hurt, that he’s scared of having his heart broken. Thankfully Chilli sees through this crap.

Still, you can see why she likes him him. Later Floyd takes Chilli to a jewelry store and buys her a pair of $14,000 earrings.

whatchilliwants201-00042

It’s not an unusually large amount of money for someone like Mayweather. More unusual:

whatchilliwants201-00045

Keeping your wallet in another man’s backpack. As far as positions in the entourage go, wallet carrier is just one step above weed carrier.

Chilli is touched, but tries not to act too smitten. Notice, however, that she’s wearing the earrings in pretty much every scene for the rest of the episode:

whatchilliwants201-00078

Tionna interviews that she is not impressed by this gesture. “Ladies, raise your hands if your friend ever bought you a pair of $14,000 earrings,” she says. True, friends don’t do that. BEST friends do that.

First stop on Tionna’s mating tour brings her to Brazilian Indy 500 race car driver Raphael Matos.

According to Tionna, his two biggest advantages over Floyd are a head full of hair (as you can see above, Floyd doesn’t even have an armpit full of hair), and Tionna in his corner. Another advantage is that Raphael wears a jumpsuit to work. It’s why women love Elvis, astronauts, and garbage men.

The idea of breaking up Floyd and Chilli’s time together is too delicious, so Tiona invites Raphael to Atlanta right away. And he shows up, right away.

Meanwhile, Chilli grills Floyd at the restaurant. She interviews that she knows Floyd loves her and that she loves Floyd. But at the restaurant he can’t give her an answer on the status of their relationship. Or rather, he can’t give her the answer he wants. He is full of sweet, sweet words:

down-boy

Nothing is sexier than a man talking to his own penis at the dinner table.

Only one thing shuts him up:

Thought Chilli would be upset about Tionna bringing a potential date to a very real date with Floyd?

Nope! Desserts are on the house!

    Before you run out to go see DR. Michael Randell because of tv, read other online reviews. I guess he’s only nice to celebrities.

  2. jmarie78 says:

    Chili is so damn stupid. Floyd walks all over her and she keeps going back for more. He probably doesn’t match anything on that list of hers, but she will choose him over a good man.

  3. Teemac36 says:

    I honestly think that Chili just clings to Floyd because she knows that she will be secure financially… Because he has none of the qualities that she claims ahe wants…Sorry to say, but I feel it’s about the $$$$$$$$

  4. Just see it for what it is says:

    I think she just feels very safe with Floyd even though he is not ready to settle down. She really needs to move on if she wants a husband and another baby.

    And also, at some point in all our lives we care about a person who does not feel the same way that we do. We have to figure out how to move pass it. And that is something that she really needs to learn how to do. Just let it go.

  5. Miss. S says:

    I got some to say on this comment about Chilli. Girl you need to leave FLOYD ALONE. He is just holding on to you and stringing you along. Chilli you is crazy if you think Floyd is going to married you. Floyd is not ready to settle down and you can’t it. I hope you find what you looking for. I know one thing Floyd is not any good for you. Why you even put up with such a person. I watch the show sunday and I seen when you were with him he wasn’t paying you know attention and eveytime you ask him about you and him he either chang the subject or put his head down.

  6. Miss.S says:

    I wasn’t finish. Chilli I think you are wasting your time with Floyd and the show. Floyd is the show. Chilli you are either blind or just dumb, because Floyd is not the one for you. He lies when you ask him the questions that you want him to answer. Too me he is just playing with you. You need to leave him alone. FOR REAL! And FIND YOU A REAL MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOT FLOYD BECAUSE WHAT YOU WANT, HE IS NOT READY FOR!

  7. ms.hopkins says:

    chili i think you and floyd make a good couple tell to stop playing and tie the knot with you

  8. ms.hopkins says:

    i meant to say tell him to stop playing with you and step up to the plate or let you find someone who wants the same thing you want you no how men are when they get hurt they put the wall up forever floyd and you aregood friends sometimes its not good to break that friendship friendships last forever and hard to find relationships come and go but i hope you find what you are looking for iam really a big fan of your sense tlc
