This week, we get to see the roomies return to the time-honored tradition of the Real World vacation. The roomies receive a trip to Cancun, sponsored by a soda that I’ve never tried but can only assume is a Sprite/Sierra Mist/etc. knockoff. I didn’t watch the Cancun season, but apparently they stayed in that cast’s old stomping grounds. The whole trip seriously looks like a postcard, the cameramen who filmed that deserve a raise. The roomies engage in various antics, including crashing Cooke’s bang session with an Australian and MikeMike attempting to conquer his fear of snakes by wrapping a giant one around his neck. I say “attempting” to conquer, because he spent the whole time freaking out (careful, they can smell fear! Okay, okay, snakes can’t smell) and said he would never do it again after it was over. Kind of like Dustin’s old encounters with a whole different kind of snake. But MikeMike does deserve some points for facing his fear.
He does not, however, earn points for fighting with Dustin. The roomies are working on starting a charity to help high schools in and near Las Vegas earn money to help their music programs. I like this idea as the importance of music education is something I feel strongly about. I realize there are bigger problems in the world, but this is just a reality show and they’re doing it as part of working for the Hard Rock, so it really is a very appropriate idea. Anyway, MikeMike is taking charge of getting the legwork done, but gets overshadowed when Dustin starts improvising ideas in a meeting. After said meeting, he hits a sensitive nerve when he implies that Dustin won’t be allowed to go visit a high school. Apparently MikeMike does not comprehend the difference between “gay porn star” and “sex offender.” Anyway, the fighting continues one night in Cancun when Dustin is extra-drunk, and it’s basically stupid and all a bunch of bullshit.
Also this week, the PI Nany hired has located her father. Apparently he’s living in Florida and has been married to someone since before she was born! Holy crap, this just got a little bit scandalous. Anyway, Nany writes him a letter for the PI to deliver and hopes that they can be a part of each other’s lives going forward. Too bad her dad isn’t living in California, then he could have been the Terminator! Come back soon for the full recap, at which point I still will not understand or care about the melodramatic fight.
