“MAFS” 2024 Recap: Timothy Just Compared Lucinda to His What?! I Can’t Deal


One thing about “MAFS” is we can never say we’ve seen it all. They’re always bringing some new chaos into the mix, and tonight’s “MAFS” episode recap is a prime example. We’re smack dab in the middle of Confessions Week, and let us tell you, it’s like a reality TV version of a pressure cooker in there.

‘Tinman Tim’ is feeling the heat this week, and not just because of all the cameras. The poor guy hates talking about feelings and emotions — you know, exactly what “MAFS” is asking him to do. Who would’ve thought, right?

Meanwhile, Lucinda’s over here and she’s head over heels for Tim, but there’s a little hiccup in paradise. Their values? Mostly in sync. Their bedroom vibes? Not so much.


At one point, Lucinda suggests a four-day tantric sex festival in the mountains, and Tim’s reaction is priceless.

“I don’t wanna walk around with hippies in the bush with my balls hanging out… call me old-fashioned,” he quips. We quite literally laughed out loud.

Lucinda Reminds Timothy of… His Dog?

Before tonight’s episode, Lucinda was already feeling a bit rejected regarding the sexual and romantic side of their relationship. Then, Timothy goes and rubs salt in the wound. Lucinda asks Tim about his lack of affection, and he drops a bombshell comparison — she’s reminding him of his “needy” dog, Matilda.

Matilda, Tim says, is like velcro — always sticking to him like glue the moment he steps through the door. And Lucinda? Well, she’s got that same magnetic quality, apparently.


Bless her heart, because Lucinda takes this comparison in stride. Who wouldn’t want to be compared to a loyal furry friend, right? But she also knows when to call a timeout.

“There’s so many rules and a massive shell there and I’ve got to be careful ‘cause I can be cheeky and poke him a bit,” she says of Timothy, before asking him for a cuddle.

Tensions Rise Between Lucinda and Timothy

After agreeing to back off a bit, or at least attempt to, Lucinda expresses frustration when Timothy chooses to watch TV instead of spending time with her.

So, what’s the deal? Well, Lucinda’s feeling like a wallflower at a dance, waiting for her partner to make a move. She’s not seeing the effort she craves, and she’s not afraid to let Tim know.

“I feel quite rejected in the intimacy, romantic stakes. I just don’t see much effort,” she says.

As tensions rise and emotions run high, Timothy feels like he’s “walking on eggshells”, while Lucinda feels more like she’s lost in translation. And just when you think they might be making progress, Tim pulls out the old “it’s not you, it’s me” line.

In the end, things get a little tense, and Tim needs a breather. Can you blame him? Anyone who’s not big on PDA can probably relate. Sometimes you just want that emotional connection, and everything else follows if it feels right. There’s no point trying to force it on someone, especially a stranger.
