Quite the showing by Chris Young this season, and it’s a shame that he and best girl Kara Russo are off the November ballot — Chris having lost big in the Providence Democratic mayoral primary, and Kara losing both her races for GOP nominations for Congress and Lt.

That prompted an elderly woman, their caretaker of sorts, to assert that the duo lived together “as brother and sister,” forcing one to wonder whether the Almighty looks more favorably upon co-habitation or wedlocked quasi-incest.

And this season’s escapades, in their full glory:
