After they performed their freestyle dance, which Maks choreographed about their journey — and set to the very romantic song “Latch” — the couple’s final pose was a near-lip lock. As viewers saw, they got as close as humanly possible to an actual kiss without physical contact. You could even see Meryl thinking about it. The way he leans in and she scratches the back of his head? And the smirk on her face? And his wink afterward? I’m dead.
And just like that, reality TV became the tease scripted television dreams of becoming.
