It was touching, awkward, heart-breaking and unintentionally hilarious – and it looks like at least one of the couples may have even found love. Without question the best moment was when Liz fronted Milena about her treatment while living in Milena’s house. She’s a straight forward girl and there was no reason the questions should not have been asked… surprise! That Ch7 are already casting for season 2 is no surprise, but now that everyone knows the hook, will they want to apply? We’ll all certainly enjoy it if they do. From the press release:
Fighting back tears after hearing the eight remaining girls’ final emotional pleas, Please Marry My Boy mums Anne, Karen, Milena and Elva delivered their verdicts in tonight’s season finale.
In the highly-charged episode, Brisbane mum Elva stood her ground, choosing 26-year-old yoga instructor Magdalena over blonde bombshell Tammy Lee – despite her son Tony’s enduring attraction to the Barbie look-a-like. Justifying her decision in the episode, the mother of three said: “It’s OK to step in if you can see your child heading in the wrong direction – it’s a mother’s job to do that – it doesn’t matter what age they are.”
“I was faced with two very different women with very different circumstances,” said Elva. “I made my choice by looking at who would give him a better future. What made it hard was knowing how Tammy felt about Tony and yet I couldn’t choose her.”
Serbian mum Milena’s fondness for 22-year-old Croatian student Andrea was confirmed when she announced the part-time barista had “won her heart” and was the “perfect match” for her 30-year-old son Vlad. The 30-year-old banking executive welcomed his mother’s choice of Andrea saying “I feel good about the decision. I think there is something there.”
In a surprise to viewers, 26-year-old Sydney hair and make-up artist Liz used her final plea speech to confront Milena about the way she treated her, saying she felt Milena opened her “home,” but not her “heart.” “I don’t know whether it’s because I’m not Serbian, but I felt that it was a little bit like that and I’m sorry to say that, but that’s how I felt,” said Liz.
‘Little’ Anna’s ‘openness’ gave her the edge over 26-year-old Sydney executive assistant Edwina with mum Anne choosing the 25-year-old fitness instructor as a match for her son Brendan.
On hearing Anne’s final decision ‘Little’ Anna said: “I was really happy and relieved. This experience has given me a new best friend and a boyfriend. . . What more could I want.” “I’m looking forward to starting a proper relationship with Brendan – just me and Brendan, no other girls involved!”
High school teacher Karen said both girls had become like daughters before announcing her choice of call centre manager Amanda for her son Matt, over 25 year-old public servant Koa. “My Mathew has found love. If everything goes ok, don’t be surprised, we could have a wedding in the near future,” said Karen about the newly minted couple.
