‘Just don’t do it again’: ‘Love Is Blind’ Season 3’s SK shuts down Bartise Bowden for hitting on fiancee
When SK stood upto Bartise Bowden to confront him for his inappropriate comments about Raven Ross, fans were swayed by the data scientist’s chivalry
DALLAS, TEXAS: While ‘Love Is Blind’ Season 3 gave fans all the “sad feels” when the much-rooted couple Raven Ross and Sikiru ‘SK’ Alagbada broke up on their wedding day, the reunion episode surely made up for the tragedy! The duo that chose to opt for the unconventional love story by taking things slow revealed that they are taking it even more slowly by dating first.
Although a few fans doubted if Raven would break SK’s heart, many were confident that this couple was one for the books. So it was a shocking surprise when SK rejected his bride-to-be at the altar, citing “too many unanswered questions” as his reason. But luckily, the couple figured out a way to give the romance another chance. As the two discussed this turn of events on the reunion show, the conversation shifted to Bartise Bowden, who had once been interested in Raven. So when the episode showed a visual of Bartise talking in a slightly inappropriate way about Raven, SK finally confronted the contestant.
The show panned into footage of Bartise from Season 3, where he calls Raven a “smoke show” and confesses his feelings for multiple women. After watching the jarring footage, Raven called the whole thing “shocking” and continued saying that Bartise’s actions put SK in a weird place. SK chipped in, saying that he appreciated his girlfriend for shutting it down, referencing the time Bartise hit on Raven during the pool party and Raven rebuffing his advances. The pilates instructor continued, “I’d never want my fiance to feel disrespected.” Bartise’s ex-fiancee Nancy Rodriguez also called out the finance analyst for his brutal honesty. Then SK took the opportunity to address his point of view about Bartise’s actions.
SK stated that he had never been the kind of person to get insecure about people hitting on his girl and continued saying that Raven was a “baddie” and was “pretty popular in the pods.” He then addressed Bartise by saying, “One other thing that I thought was really bizarre was, like, this whole thing came from me and you having a conversation with Cole (Barnett), about our very first next day, and you know, it was, like, a bro conversation, like man-to-man, like, “Hey, this is where we’re at,” like “Our first night was like this,” right?” he continued saying that Bartise enacting the whole conversation “word to word” to his fiancee, Nancy, was too bizarre for SK, adding, “What sort of brutal honesty is that?” He continued to say that he felt it was “very inappropriate” of Bartise and was just not “cool.” Bartise later apologized to SK, who responded with a curt, “Just don’t do it again, though.”
When SK stood upto Bartise to confront him for his inappropriate comments about Raven, fans were swayed by the data scientist’s chivalry. Many expressed their delight and appreciation on Twitter as one fan wrote, “I also love how SK addressed Bartise & his shenigans as well as acknowledging how proud he was with Raven standing 10 toes down & shutting that clown down. STAN FOR YOUR WOMAN, SK! I didn’t think they would be but they’re my new fav couple next to The Hamiltons!” A viewer also penned, “WHY WHYYYYYYYY THEY DIDN’T DO A CLOSE UP ON BARTISE’S FACE WHEN SK AND RAVEN KISSED ????” While another praised SK, writing, “SK really holding it down for the culture. Loved how he put Bartise in his place.” One fan wrote, “I LOVVEEEEE SK talking s**t to Bartise’s face on the reunion! He said “just don’t do it again!”” Another happily expressed, “SK coming for Bartise is so beautiful.” One viewer chimed in with: “I respect SK way more after watching the reunion. He just called Raven a “baddie” and then addressed the Raven/Bartise situation with respect.”
