When asked about all these things, they five responded collectively with, “so what?” An attitude that seemed to express that they believed the public were the idiots. So what they drank before the show? So what they wore bikinis before the show? So what they knew each other before the show?
Well here’s the so what. The fact that they dressed in English clothing before this show make the many scenes about them buying English clothes completely inauthentic. The fact that Abe and Rebecca initially lied to the cameras about not knowing each other — and then eventually confessed that they actually did know each other as “friends” makes their entire courtship fake. Jeremiah taking driving lessons as if he’d only ever ridden in a horse and buggy undermines his big taxi driver plot of the season. That’s the so what.
