Who won the Getaway Challenge in ‘Are You the One?’ Season 8 Episode 4?

Production took a poll from the singles in the house on who are the two most desirable. Amber and Jenna had the highest votes, presumably because they are already “coupled up.” For the Getaway Challenge, the other singles selected words and pieced together their best pickup line for the two girls. Jenna and Amber then choose their two favorite lines, and those are the six singles that participated in the next Getaway Date. Nour, Amber’s “wifey,” already began to get jealous and told the other contestants they “can look but can’t touch.”

Amber chose Kari’s line because it included her two favorite things: “lick” and “crazy.” She also selected Paige’s because she found it funny. Jenna picked Kai’s because it included cake, which Kai knew and purposely selected, even though they just “broke up.” Jenna also chose Remy’s, who hooked up with Kai on the first night and Jenna made out with him after her argument with Kai the night before. For their Getaway Date, the group took the boat out at night and swam with manta rays.

How did the Getaway Date go in ‘Are You the One?’ Season 8 Episode 4

Remy admitted Jenna makes him feel happy all over his body. However, he believes she needs to be her own superhero and save herself from Kai, who he called a blood-sucking leech. When Kai and Jenna talked privately, he immediately tried to start things off by repeating his pickup line from the Getaway Challenge. However, Jenna didn’t find it quite as funny anymore. She went right into why they need to break up because the beams say they’re not a match and have bright red flags between them.

Kai argued back, claiming that Jenna reasoned him out of her life and made him feel bad for showing emotion over the situation. They ended up in a screaming match which turned into an intense makeout session. Jenna admitted that she’s falling in the same toxic routine with Kai that she did with previous partners, but Kai believes passion is passion. 

Amber admitted she thinks Paige is a sexy version of Harry Potter and Paige asked for a kiss. But, out of loyalty to Nour, Amber kissed her only on the cheeks and nose.

In ‘Are You the One?’ Season 8 Episode 4, singles throw a queer prom

Basit came up with an idea to throw a gender-bending queer prom while the other singles were on their Getaway Date. The majority of the Are You the One singles were not out in high school or able to take the person they wanted to prom. Therefore, they threw another one where the females wore masculine clothing and the males wore dresses.

Justin admitted he took a girl to the dance in high school, but this time he’s taking Max. Basit wore a black suit to his first prom, but he brought Dionne Slay, his drag queen identity, out for this one. Jonathan said he never went to the dance because of his insecurity, but Dionne Slay brought him out of his shell, and Jonathan introduced BeyondGood to the world. When they went outside to talk, Dionne Slay loved seeing BeyondGood own this side of him, and BeyondGood felt like they could be a perfect match. They ended up sharing a simple kiss on the lips in the confessional.

During the prom, Aasha danced in between Max and Justin and then shared a three-way kiss with the potential couple. Also, Nour forgot about the rules she gave her “wifey” and made out with Kylie while Amber was on her Getaway Date. The situation genuinely upset Amber because she’s been cheated on several times in the past, so she asked Nour for space.

Can Nour and Amber get past this? Watch Are You the One? Wednesdays at 9 P.M. EST on MTV to find out!
