At the end of this week’s episode we saw Johnny Bananas tell Laurel that he didn’t think Jordan’s intentions were sincere. It’s no secret that Laurel is a great competitor, so having Laurel on his side could only benefit Jordan’s game. Yet Laurel maintained that the relationship was real and not centered on the game.
Now that Jordan has left Uruguay, the question of whether or not his relationship with Laurel will last remains. Laurel really seemed to have sincere feelings for Jordan. This was a side of Laurel that we never got to see before. Sure, she was flirting with CT on Rivals but that game tore that relationship apart before it even started.
On Free Agents Laurel was actually able to form a bond with Jordan, and she seemed upset that he left. She was also upset that he had to go without saying a real goodbye. Now that he’s gone, Bananas has introduced the possibility that Jordan’s intentions with Laurel were not genuine.
So is there a possibility that Jordan and Laurel could last? Honestly, I do think that Jordan was being genuine with Laurel. He’s confident in himself… so much so that he would rather lose by himself than do well but have to attribute his success to another competitor. However, we never saw the two of them argue. I feel that their relationship could crumble once they have their first disagreement become both are so headstrong.
Either way, I don’t see any real signs of Jordan being insincere with Laurel. So I do think there is a possibility that the relationship will last.
