Well, I think I'm learning something from this show. Almost none of the joes they picked were a match for Melana, nor was she a match for them. I think the only reason some attraction grew is because the contestants are in a desert island situation. Sure, she would get to like some of the men she came to know, but you've still got to have that special something in the air. A fair number of guys who had nothing in common with her, but remained obsessively attracted, in denial, or just obsessed were the ones that creeped me out the most.
I was pretty cynical watching the very first show where they were showing the fluffy clips of Melana talking all dreamy eyed about how she's ready for mister right or whatever, mixed in with the previews of these "poor joes" who were going to get their hearts broken. I was actually thrown for a loop and I was very impressed by the way she handled it. She was polite, but not phony and although she was clearly shocked and disappointed, she decided to just be herself. From what I saw, she didn't really lead any of those guys on either.
