Ariana Madix Doesn’t Appreciate Tactic

During the reunion episode, the producers did not show the final five minutes of the last episode to the cast on purpose. They wanted to show them at the reunion. This was more than likely a tactic to get Ariana to show her emotions because she is good at hiding them. However, she was not a fan.

“It felt, ‘Well, we have her trapped in this room now. We didn’t get what we wanted to get [during the finale]. We didn’t get to break her down in real life in the moment, so we’re gonna retaliate by doing that right now in a place where she’s contractually obligated to be here and try to force this moment now.’ Great, I cried. Are you guys happy now?”

She was clearly upset and did not appreciate what they just did. However, they achieved their goals by making her cry.

Katie Maloney Speaks On The Issue

Katie Maloney felt the same way about the way the show went about it. She spoke out on the issue. 

“I hated the ending of it all. I hated that they waited to show us that five minutes because I was like, ‘This feels mean and it’s just mean towards Ariana,’ that wasn’t for any of us. There was nothing shocking in it for any of us. It was only mean toward one person.”

You even see Katie mouth “what the f*ck” when they were showing the last five minutes. Fans agreed that it felt targeted towards only Ariana and no one else there. However, they know that Tom Sandoval got a good laugh out of it which makes fans hate him even more.
