Wow! I had no idea how much tension there was between Farah and Kirsten. I love how Kirsten kept telling Farah they needed to work things out, but just kept getting confrontational. It was brave of Farah to take that first step, but she probably shouldn't have tried to air out their dirty laundry at a party. How adorable are Brandon and Nadia together? Pop the question, Brandon! I was happy to see Jenna finally cut loose and enjoy her time with Galen. What did you think about tonight's show? Let me know in the comments section!
