At the start of Chapter 3 of Life is Strange: True Colors, Ryan and Steph ask you to choose the hottest distraction between them. Their two plans to get more information about Typhon involve distracting Diane with a date, but Steph and Ryan can't decide which of them would work better as a distraction. This means that the choice between the two is up to you. Here's who you should choose as your hottest distraction in Life is Strange: True Colors.
Should you choose Ryan or Steph as your hottest distraction?
The decision really comes down to personal preference. The two planes are identical. The only difference is whether Ryan or Steph will be the distraction for Diane. Just choose the one that you personally find the most appealing, as the plan will play out the same regardless of your choice.
While this decision doesn't start a romance with either character, it definitely sends a signal that Alex is interested in whoever you choose. Some new minor dialogue options will be unlocked later depending on your choice, and you can use your power of empathy to catch them thinking about your choice soon after. For example, choosing Steph will unlock a dialogue option unique to LARP later in the chapter.
If you want to romance Steph or Ryan, you're in luck, as those are the only two romance options in the entire game. Although your decisions throughout the game can affect your relationships with them, neither of your choices will never exclude you from romance. All you have to do is make a move at the right time and you'll be set. If you want to date Steph, check out our Steph romance guide. If you prefer Ryan, check out our Ryan romance guide.
