I sometimes feel like I’m watching Battle of the Exes 2, when in fact I’m watching Battle of the Seasons. We have Danny and Melinda, Zach and Ashley, two couples from St. Thomas that may or may not be together, and of course Knight and Jemmye.
If you watched Real World: New Orleans in 2010, you likely fell in love with the duo. Both Knight and Jemmye came onto the season with some baggage, and I admit that I was not expecting to like them. To my surprise, they were not the shitshows of the season and created one of the most likeable couples in Real World history.
Knight was supportive of Jemmye when she opened up about her abusive relationship in the past. If Jemmye fell, he’d help her up. If she got too drunk, he’d put her to bed. I couldn’t help but feel that they are perfect for each other.
After the real world wrapped up, the two remained a couple. Jemmye had a small run-in with the law, and Knight was there by her side…because they got arrested together. What other couple has matching mug shots?
I was excited when I heard that they were on Battle of the Seasons together. Unfortunately, they were not an item during the first episode, and Jemmye revealed that Knight cheated on her prior to coming on the show.
I understand that Jemmye’s upset and it’s easy to understand why. However, Knight is showing remorse for his actions. Admitting you are wrong it always a step in the right direction when addressing an issue, and Knight does have an excuse- he was hammered! Of course, there’s more to this story than we’ll ever see on TV, but I still wish that they were together.
I don’t know for certain whether or not they get back together. Perhaps the real question is whether or not they should get back together…and my answer is YES!
