Marie caps it off by dumping a bucket of water on him to wake him up, at which point the three of them scatter, but of course he goes straight after Marie. It turns out still-half-asleep running and water do not mix, as Big Red takes a tumble and then his sweet time getting up. Apparently him getting hurt wasn’t part of the plan, but he insists he’s okay.
Laura has now made friends with a tiny lizard-like creature, which she has named Leonard. This girl is seriously one of those who watches every “romantic” movie she can get her hands on and takes mental notes as if the behavior in those movies is what guys find adorable and will therefore like. And Trey is the sensitive jock who knows he’s supposed to like this stuff even though he finds it kind of weird.
Meanwhile, Marie helps Big Red get rid of the peanut butter in the shower as they crack jokes and flirt. I give it two more episodes before they hook up, max.
The roomies get ready (Laura impressing Latoya with her “boob bronzer” trick) and head to Paradise Point for dinner, which is on top of a mountain and has an excellent view. Shockingly, Laura finds it romantic. Once dinner is over, she’s leading Trey by the hand to the Ferris wheel, debating whether they should go in a pink or purple cart. Apparently he’s a little nervous, so she decides to shake the cart on him. Okay, that move is literally stolen EXACTLY from The O.C. She then spends the ride telling him that she likes him, and of course they end up kissing. Something tells me she didn’t watch past the first season of The O.C., or she wouldn’t be so eager to follow the path of Marissa Cooper.
The girls are alone heading down from the mountain, and Laura naturally tells her standard romcom sidekicks about the Ferris wheel kiss. Marie continues to win me over by semi-sarcasticly exclaiming, “Tell us more!”
Finally, time for da club! Trey and Laura dance and make out, shocker. Swift and Latoya do some bumpngrind. Even Brandon makes a friend! She seems a little bitchy, but beggars can’t be choosers. Big Red is impressed with Brandon’s “game,” although it seems mostly like blind luck at this point. But THEN, some local tells Brandon to back off, which causes him to fly into such a rage that he pulls poor Swift away from the girl he was talking to because emo roomie needs some comfort.
Despite Swift and Latoya’s best efforts, Brandon is still angry when they leave, punching a sign for good measure and great preview material. Marie calls him out for being negative, earning a good old “you don’t know me!” style response. Marie can’t believe this is how they’re ending their first night out.
Trey decides to use assorted roomies and the confessional as his human journals, talking about his dad being in and out of jail and going to visit him as a kid. Well, now we know why Trey was picked for the show! They’re all impressed with how well he handles it.
Everyone finally makes it to bed, at which point RedRobb decides to go to sleep in Marie’s bed. When they wake up, seemingly minutes later, she decides to mess with him by saying they made out for an hour. He doesn’t believe her, but he wants to. And I’ve finally figured out who Marie reminds me of: Chelsea Handler. That is the real epiphany to take from this conversation.
Speaking of Chelsea, that is also the name of Trey’s “girl back home.” Oh man, can’t WAIT for this drama. He blahblahs about getting to know the other roomies, and declares it “funny” that everyone in the house is single and straight (good point, there isn’t even any questionable sexuality at this point). Chelsea does not find this to be a big deal. Trey tells us they decided not to have any titles, to “make it easier,” but it’s still hard knowing he left someone he cares about at home.
