And now, we learn that Ginger ALSO has a dreaded GBH. TWIST! Also, et tu, Ginger? Anyway, her name is Emily and she declares herself “broken” because she has no interest in guys hitting on her since she met Ginger.
Meanwhile, Latoya and Marie have attempted to kayak, and it is truly a comedy of errors. It is quite the sight to behold. Their BFF, Lee the Boat Driver, saves them. Also, this is my favorite friendship in the house so far (with honorable mention to Lee, of course). As they tell us about their adventures in the confessional, Laura busts in to tell them that she kayaked “all the way down and all the way back.”
The girls sit around discussing the guys. Marie declares that she has an “adult crush” on Ginger, which means that she would never hook up with him because he’s “so much younger” than her. Hey, remember when McAdams-lite said she’d never hook up with a roommate? Let’s revisit that in a minute. Latoya recounts Captain Needy’s listing of the couples, prompting McAdams-lite to declare that she’s surprised Marie and Ginger aren’t “together.” Not surprised that they haven’t hooked up, but surprised that they’re not “together” within, what? A week? of knowing each other.
Ginger laments to Marie the fact that his friends are shitty about returning his emails, then brings up Emily for maximum awkwardness. Marie tells us she doesn’t know what to do because this could be getting complicated.
Marie and Trey discuss the fact that he thought he would be bringing women home every night, and his “boys back home” expect him to be doing just that, but he has a girl in the house that “babies” him. Marie tells Trey that she thinks he’s hurting McAdams-lite’s feelings by not treating her the same way. Trey just wants to make it clear that he COULD bring home girls if he wanted to, and Marie assures him that everyone knows that, but they also know he’s not going to and he might as well hook up with Laura.
But rest assured, Trey, everyone knows that you COULD be a douchebag if you WANTED to.
Ginger and Trey toss around the pigskin and discuss the status of each of their various relationships. Trey wants to be free, and Ginger tells him to live in the moment, but Trey doesn’t want to screw up his GBH situation. Ginger says that Emily is coming to visit, plane ticket and all. She also said she doesn’t care if Ginger goes on dates, but she would rather he didn’t hook up with a roommate. This should be interesting…ish.
Marie responds to the news of Emily’s impending visit by getting white girl wasted, complete with awkward dance moves attempting to be sexy. Ginger tries to talk to her, but it’s a lost cause at this point, so Captain Needy is happy to help take care of her. They head home, and on her dismount from the boat back onto their home island, Marie manages to give herself a bloody face to match Ginger’s from the beginning of the episode.
Seriously, these two are a match made in heaven. The universe is practically screaming at them to get together.
Marie wanders drunkenly around the house for a bit, until Ginger finally manages to give her some ice for her lip. She says she hates him and blames her injury on him. McAdams-lite baby-talks that they look so cute, but Marie is being drunkenly rude to Ginger and he’s had enough. There are some vaguely dramatic confessionals. I guess they finally go to bed? The whole thing was just incoherent.
Trey and McAdams-lite sit down for a Talk. I can barely hear her mumbling and she’s not subtitled, but basically she says she knows he wants to take things slow but she wants to live in the moment and not miss out on anything by taking things too slow. Trey says that “living in the moment” can be used as an excuse to “screw over someone you care about” and he doesn’t want to mess things up with the GBH. Big talk for someone who came here planning to bring home a different girl every night.
