Making Mr. Right Episode 3 – Singing, Sulking And Sucking Face

Making Mr. Right

It’s week three in the Making Mr. Right house and while the “matchmakers” are enjoying spying on the guys more than ever, it has also become increasingly harder for them, as they develop feelings for the guys, to keep their cover. April is forced to intervene and decides that this week the girls will be picking, and getting to know, a new group of guys. Lindsay is especially bummed that Matthew will not be on her team this week because “there is no disputing the fact that he’s my top guy.” Rachel is open to switching groups because she’s hoping to get to know Brian better, and even though Brittany still is crushing hard on Murphy, agrees it “would be nice” to get to know some of the other guys. This week the goal is to get to know each guy’s communication style so their first challenge is to write a song or poem about their dream girl AKA the “matchmakers.” The guys spend the day in the house working on their song. Murphy is scared that he isn’t creative or musical enough, while James is psyched because he feels the challenge was designed with his success in mind.

Lindsay works with Niko on his song and is smitten by how sweet the lyrics he came up with are. That is, until he admits his song was inspired by his mother. Yikes! It’s amazing he has such a great relationship with his family, but writing a love song about your mother is borders major red flag territory here.

Meanwhile, Brittany gets to know Matthew a little better. She opens up to him about her daughter and feels they have a lot more in common than she initially thought. She worries that Lindsay will be mad at her for getting closer to Matthew, but reassures the audience that she is Lindsay’s friend, so she has nothing to worry about. Rachel helps Dan with his song and in a confessional interview he says “Rachel is like a mother to me. A mother I’d like to f***!”

Finally, it’s time to hear what the guys came up with. Instead of performing it for each other, the guys get to make their musical debuts on stage during a date with a girl they are meeting for the first time. Murphy meets his date, Mari, and feels an instant connection. Even though the editing only show he and Mari talking about the weather, he claims that they talked about “real, important stuff” and he feels they are extremely similar.

Meanwhile, in a confessional interview, Brittany talks about her growing exciting in seeing the guys’ “mushy sides,” and one of her deal breakers are guys who can’t show emotions.

James’ performance makes a strong impression on Lindsay: “James is phenomenal. There is a part of me that can’t help but fall for a guy playing the guitar and singing me a song. I would be lying if I said I didn’t wonder if there was something more there.” Brittany finds Arwen’s performance “very smooth.” Ryan makes his performance a joke, but it works, especially for Rachel. As Murphy prepares to take the stage, his excitement builds because, even though he wrote the song before he met his date, he feels that it illustrates exactly how he feels about her. He cries as he reads his poem and Brittany’s “heart is melting.”

When he gets off the stage, Brittany is standing by to give him a big hug. Making Mr. Right

Her happiness is short-lived because he almost immediately tells her the poem is about Mari. She expects that he will be over her when they get back to the house, but unfortunately he continues talking about how “perfect” Mari is for him. Making Mr. RightHe thinks she might be “too perfect” and jokes that he thinks the matchmakers might have been feeding her lines to say to him. Sorry, Muprhy! That was last week.

April arrives to inform the “matchmakers” that they will each be choosing one guy from their group to go on a special date. The ladies will help them get ready, and be their wing woman throughout the evening. Rachel chooses Brian because she wants to continue spending time with him. Brittany decides on Arwen since he was her #2 guy all along, and she’s hardly gotten to know him because she’s been blinded by Murphy’s good looks. Lindsay picks Niko because she feels they may have a connection and she wants to “test it out.” Dan is bummed he wasn’t chosen to get special attention because he think she needs it the most. He quips that Niko and Arwen “can walk into a room with their muscles and be all set,” but he understands why Brian was chosen. Burn!

To prepare for the date, Arwen and Brittany practice their dance moves together. Even though she hasn’t gotten to know him any better she feels like she can have fun with him, so its a good start.

Rachel wants to see Brian’s softer side so they practice slow dancing. She’s nervous she is blowing her cover because she can’t deny the sparks that are flying. After they slow dance, she asks him if he’d be willing to shave his facial hair. Since he is willing to put himself into the process whole-heartedly, he agrees, but warns her that he is going to look like a thirteen year old boy. He shaves in front of her, which is strangely intimate.

Then it’s finally time for their dates. The girls are equipped with portable spy kits and are able to guide the conversation via their decoy daters, who this time are wearing earpieces.

To establish their credibility as matchmakers, they set Arwen up with Millie again. Brittany isn’t threatened because she doesn’t really think Millie is the girl for him, regardless of how much they hit it off the last time they met. Since she didn’t’ get to know much about him in their date-prep, she uses Millie to get the information she needs, specifically regarding her child. Millie asks him if he wants kids and if he would consider dating a woman who already had a child. Brittany is nervous to hear his answer, after finding out children are a deal breaker for Murphy, but is happy to hear that Arwen wants 2-3 children and would be totally open to dating someone who already has a child.

Niko’s date is Olivia. Lindsay wants her to ask questions that are really specific to her so she decides to ask if he shares her love of romantic comedies. He isn’t sure he can think of any and asks Olivia to name one. He hasn’t seen Pretty Woman or 27 Dresses. Romantic comedies are super important to Lindsay so this is upsetting to her, but luckily Niko is still just as hot. So for now, she can let that go. She wants to find out how far he would go on a first date, so she encourages Olivia to get a little “touchy-feely” with him. During dinner, he and Olivia hold hands, which is fine with Lindsay because she still isn’t convinced he is into her. But then when the date moves to the dance floor, he and Olivia start making out as Lindsay sulks several yards away.

Making Mr. Right

Rachel had an ex who was in constant contact with his past girlfriends, and is not interested in doing that again so she persuades Brian’s date to ask if he’s ever cheated. He hasn’t, but admits that every single girl he has ever dated has cheated on him. Poor Brian! He seems like such a nice guy all around, it’s really sad that his exes have taken advantage of him that way. Rachel feels empathy for his situation, but is honestly “relieved” that he isn’t himself a cheater. She tells his date to excuse herself to the restroom and she swoops in to find out how far he’s going to take it. He tells her he wants to be “classy” and respectful so he isn’t going to try to kiss his date goodnight. He notices that Rachel is “really stoked” when he said he isn’t going to kiss his date.

Making Mr. Right

April returns to talk to the girls about their experience watching their crushes with other women. Rachel says “We’re doing great as matchmakers, but personally we’re all getting burned here.” April reiterates that this is not a bad week, but instead its a good one because they were able to learn how their guys act on a date. She reiterates that this process will take a lot of patience on their part. She shares confessional footage of the guys talking about how hot they think their matchmakers are, so the girls aren’t fully discouraged. The girls are realizing that they haven’t really gotten to know many of the guys and want to switch teams again the following week. April agrees, but this time wants to let the guys pick their teams!
