Samantha and Mike are better than Ashley and anyone. Heck, they may even be better than Ali and Roberto.

To be fair, few things aren’t better than “The Bachelorette” Season 7.

I love “The Bachelorette” and I’ll watch it no matter what crazy shenanigans they pull, but this season has been rough. Still not as rough as Brad Womack + his therapist, but Ashley Hebert’s season is only just now becoming bearable and we’re already at the overnight dates.

On the other hand, “Love in the Wild” is getting better and better every week.

Samantha and Mike are already a stronger couple than Ashley and JP or Ashley and Ben F. on “The Bachelorette.” I don’t see the appeal of Steele, but he and Erica seem to be doing well too. I felt bad for Jason, but he should be glad to be free of Jessica. Derrek is a twat. Ben is a twat, but I love him with Brandee. She brings out the best in him. Theresa and Skip get such little air time I keep forgetting they are there. Heather and Miles are a good team.

But I just love Mike & Sam. They are living out the love story I wanted to see on “The Bachelorette.”

Next week it looks like they are forced to switch partners and someone is carted off in an ambulance Nice.

Are you watching “Love in the Wild”? You should watch. Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on NBC. At least tape it or watch it On Demand. Or just catch up on episodes right here on the official site.

Not that I’m giving up on “The Bachelorette.” I’m not sure if Ashley picks JP or Ben. I said Ben before but I really have no idea. Read all kinds of Bachelor/Bachelorette news/spoilers and fun stuff here at Wetpaint’s site.

And don’t forget: The Greatest Show On Earth is coming soon! Yes! “Bachelor Pad” Season 2 arrives on August 8. Prepare.
