Here's What You Missed On The 'Ready To Love' Season 6 Premiere

It's getting muy caliente.

Culture & Entertainment

Will Packer’s series Ready To Love is back and this time it’s getting muy caliente. The sixth season of Ready To Love headed down to Miami for some sun, sand, and romance. Twenty melanated singles, 10 women and 10 men come together to fall in love and find their soulmates in this social experiment. With host Tommy Miles as their guide, the cast members have to step out of their comfort zones and build connections with others in order to truly find their perfect match or weed out the ones that aren’t committed to the process. In the premiere episode, the cast comes together to mix and mingle at a pool party in a luxurious mansion. While people start trickling into the party, the connections began forming.


However, when Tommy joined them, he reminded everyone that while they are enjoying the process, two people are going home at the end of the night.

There were some one-on-one connections that looked promising and then there was Justice. The 42-year-old event planner was a crowd favorite at the party. Many of the ladies such as April, Tranika, Lunie, and more were all trying to get his attention during the mixer and so he is sure to keep fans on their toes this season.

Here are some one-on-one connections to watch (light spoilers are ahead):

Sampson and Lunie 

This budding couple was all smiles during their conversation. And during her confessional, Lunie, 36, shared that Sampson, 48, had been consistent and put in the effort in trying to get to know her, which is what she liked.

Jamala and Randall

Jamala, 33, described her connection with Randall, 36, as “magnetic.” Randall also gushed over Jamala calling her “gorgeous” and he admitted he had his eye on her as soon as she walked in the door.

LJ and Shakyra

LJ and Shakyra seemed to connect on a variety of levels. They both have kids and they both have been single for three years. LJ is a 33-year-old singer from the U.S. Virgin Islands and Shakyra is a 37-year-old media host/ model from Brooklyn, NY. And while they looked chummy with one another, Shakyra did mention that she typically doesn't date men younger than her.

At the end of the party, Sean was eliminated after failing to make genuine connections with the ladies. Sheresse and Dominka were also on the chopping block but were both spared.

So far, this season looks to be an entertaining one. Let’s hope there are some true love connections.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.

How Each Of The Zodiac Signs Get Over A Break-Up

Have you ever wondered how some people tend to get over breakups easily, and others have more of a difficult time? The zodiac signs are always telling a story, and the story of love is written in the stars. Some signs naturally follow their emotions more and live by the heart. Others signs focus on balancing their head with their heart and can rationalize this type of change in their life, such as a breakup. People get over breakups in their own way and in their own time, but wouldn’t it be nice to understand more about how you process this experience yourself, or how someone you know or have been involved with gets over a breakup?

'Abbott Elementary' Proves That TV Can Build Community

The first time I thought about how art could be a form of community building was with HBO’s Insecure. The dearly departed comedy series created and starring Issa Rae provided audiences with more than just weekly laughs over the course of five years, but it also created space for other Black artists and entrepreneurs to thrive-- from all the Black businesses that the show has collaborated with to the Black music artists that the show has put audiences onto. It even created opportunities within entertainment journalism for many up and coming Black journalists who got their start by reviewing the show or hosting after shows unpacking the mess that went on in the episode.
