Philipo says he goes to New York every two months or so to shop and hang out, and not-so-subtly tries to find out if Mo’Rum is single. When he finds out she is, he promptly mentions just having broken up with his girlfriend. Mo’Rum looks uncomfortable in the moment, but acts all happy that Philipo might like her back when she gets to the confessional.
For some reason, she feels the need to recount this for poor Ginger, who tells us he knows Mo’Rum is attracted to Philipo’s money, but he has no idea how much of it is her having fun and how much is for real. After what appears to be a long, uncomfortable ride home, Ginger is too drunk to make it off the boat and lands right back in it. He finally makes it to land with some help from Swift, but his ego is more bruised than his body could possibly be (and that’s saying something, because his body is pretty bruised).
So, how’s that “controlling the drinking” plan working out for you?
Latoya tries to have a conversation with Swift about how illogical it was for him to flip out over her laughing. He babbles some more (like he did at 4 AM) about the other roomies not knowing “the whole situation.” She says his reaction was still ridiculous, and I have no idea what Swift thinks he’s saying, because all I hear is incoherent stuttering. Literally, to me it sounds like static is coming out of his mouth. (You see, kids, back before cable boxes, we had these things called antennae…) He claims to be secure, but she tells him he reacts differently to men and women and he needs to “work on it.”
Next, they end up dragging Mo’Rum and Ginger into this. As if I didn’t feel bad enough for Ginger already. Somehow, this leads to Swift claiming that he hooked up with Latoya, earning vehement denials from both Mo’Rum and the woman herself. Swift insists he was going to “gladly” keep it under wraps, but he could not look less broken up to have made this revelation.
“Oh my goodness, this cat just fell out of this bag. I can’t even imagine how that could have happened. OOPS.”
He tells us they “got it in” in St. Croix, but the only video we get is a shot of each of them separately followed by a shot of a door closing. So basically, no video evidence whatsoever. Swift insists that he’s not going to let anyone make him look like a fool. Except himself, I guess, because I certainly didn’t think he was a fool until all of this bullshit. Or maybe I did during his other stupid fights, but I forgot until he picked this fight. Gotta stay in Challenge consideration somehow.
Latoya insists that she’s classy, not trashy, and Mo’Rum knows Swift isn’t Toya’s type. Ginger also thinks Swift is lying, and somehow after Swift walks away Mo’Rum starts blaming Ginger for something. Backing down, I guess? Everyone gets super-dramatic about this situation all the way into a commercial break. Oh look, this guy shouldn’t have been texting and driving and now he has brain damage. Thanks for that ray of sunshine, mtv.com!
Here’s some nice scenery as a reward for all you’ve put up with this season, Gasmii!
