‘Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition’: Michel’le and Stew's ring stunt has fans convinced couple should split up
Michel’le Toussant’s strange relationship with her young boyfriend Robert “Stew” Stewart has always raised eyebrows. It started off with Michel’le declaring that Stew doesn’t love her, then accusing him of being attracted to their fellow ‘Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition’ star Joseline Hernandez. The couple has certainly been through a roller-coaster ride during their sting on the show with both Michel’le and Stew second-guessing their feelings for each other and their relationship.
It’s finally the D-day and the couples have to decide whether they want to leave together or end the relationship for good and start afresh. So, everybody was curious to see what would happen with Michel’le and Stew. The couple’s lie-detector test too indicate that they had both been lying about their feelings for each other, so fans were more or less convinced that the couple would leave the show as singles.
But Michel’le pulled a stunt in the last minute, which left everybody shocked. When during the ring ceremony, Michel’le was asked if she wants to leave with Stew, she opens her ring box to show an empty box suggesting that she didn’t want to leave with him. When it was Stew’s turn he had a ring in his box, and wanted to leave the show with her. Upon seeing this, Michel’le declares that she changed her mind, and pulls out a ring she had kept hidden and gives it to Stew. The couple kiss each other for the first time on the show, and leave the show happily together.
Although the couple left together, fans felt that it might not be in their best interests to be together and suggested that they should have left separately. A fan tweeted, “@WEtv #HipHopBootCamp STEW AN MICHEL'LE NEEDS TOO JUST GO THEY SEPARATE WAY'S IJS. Another fan wrote, “Please lord stew and Michèle’le need to leave each other alone ! #HipHopBootCamp.”
A fan pointed out, “Why is Michel'le wasting our time? She knows she doesn't want Stew. She just doesn't want to be alone. Let that man go. #HipHopBootCamp.” Another fan expressed, “Damn.. I was hoping Stew was gonna walk away from all this drama... and find something better..... #HipHopBootCamp.”
“The “where are they know” segment at the end gonna say “Stew & Michel’le didn’t even make it out the door together & broke up” #HipHopBootCamp,” joked a fan.
