”Oh sure… and would you date Tayla? Do you think she’s hot?” Al asked.
“I think Tayla is a beautiful girl, I should get to know her a little,” Jackson replied.

It was a rollercoaster ride for the couple, but it seemed to go from bad to worse as the weeks went on. Finally, the future of their relationship was called into question after Tayla secretly returned home to Tasmania.

Tayla surprised everyone when she got up in the middle of dinner, but Hugo was already done. He suggested they just do it then and after breaking the news to the rest of the group, they abandoned the experiment.
