It's clear from Heather's hard work and her producer's aggressiveness that the recording business is rough.

Eric doesn't really understand what she sees in him. Andre's band, Reigndance, is practicing for an upcoming show when the cops show up and shut the rehearsal down.

Fun, indeed--Mike gets the self-proclaimed honor of being the first in the house to ""get some ass."" The girls are shocked and disgusted to find out that Mike did the deed while Malik and Kevin were trying to sleep in the same bedroom. Coral even threatens to ""never have sex again"" if they keep discussing Mike's sex life. Meanwhile, Rachel's got a crush on a guy named Gabe who plays guitar in a band. She informs her female roommates that he kissed her ""after the Warped Tour last summer."" Everyone is a bit skeptical of this boy and Coral warns Rachel, ""I better not find you in his hotel

Lori's band is not going as well as she had hoped. The practice sessions have not moved past jam sessions. They don't have any real songs or even lyrics. Lori tells Rachel that she is ""a recording artist"" and that she is shifting her focus in that direction. As luck would have it, Lori and her roommates get the opportunity to tour the Arista offices and meet the president of Arista and Arista recording artist Usher. They also get to sit in on a real recording session with a new Arista recording artist named Lennon, who happens to be a 19-year-old girl. Lori is excited as she watches Lennon record. The following day, Lori, Mike and Rachel decide to explore the Arista offices some more. They meet a music supervisor named Nicky, who shows them some of the music he is working on. Lori tells him that she is a singer and that she would love to give him a demo CD. Several days later, Nicky calls Lori into his office and admits that he was really surprised at how well she sings and that he w

The tension in the house is diminishing these days, except between Nicole and Malik. They still aren't speaking, although Malik hopes that they can all be friends someday. Most of the roommates seem to think that Nicole should just let it go. Meanwhile, Malik and Mike are expecting visits from their families. Mike is surprised to learn that his separated parents are coming to visit him ""together."" The roommates find that Mike's parents are different than they expected. Coral describes Mike's mom as ""a Dallas Cowboy cheerleader."" As Kevin joins them for dinner, Mike gets embarrassed by his dad's comments about black culture in Cleveland. It is obvious that Mike is experiencing a tremendous amount of growth during his stay in New York. Meanwhile, Malik prepares to meet his father's family for the first time. Malik explains to Mike that he never knew his father, who left the family when Malik was just six months old. Malik is anxious to meet his new extended family but wonders whether the

The girls are fed up with being single. During a ""Girl's Night In Virgin Margarita Party,"" they make a pact that they will each try and get a date by the end of next month. Lori decides to work on getting her date immediately. As a result of her daily walks to and from work, she discovers a cute doorman standing outside of Harry Winston's. She gets up the courage to approach him and they end up having a very flirtatious conversation. He invites her back later in the week for a tour of the store, and Lori thinks this one is in the bag. On tour day, Lori gets the full princess treatment, including the opportunity to try on expensive one-of-a kind jewels, one of which was worn by Madonna on her wedding day. After the tour, Lori asks out the cute doorman. He replies uncomfortably that he is busy. Then he adds, ""I am practically married."" Thoroughly embarrassed, Lori mumbles goodbye and heads towards Arista. So much for that! Meanwhile, the girls are annoyed that the guys are such kiss-asse

The roommates are excited to find out that they get to compete in a window display contest as part of their job at Arista. They are split up into two teams. Rachel, Mike, Nicole, and Malik must build a display for Dido. Kevin, Coral, and Lori must create a display for Outkast. Each team gets to work with a BMG representative who will help them execute their ideas. Nicole comes up with an idea for her team and gets upset with Mike when he tries to give a suggestion. It is clear to the entire group that it is ""Nicole's way or no way."" Things get even worse after Nicole and Mike have a screaming match on the streets of New York, just because Mike took the van without telling Nicole. Nicole's attitude affects the team spirit and subsequently they lose to the Outkast team. Nicole tells Coral that she ""is glad that her team lost."" Everyone is pretty annoyed with Nicole at this point. Meanwhile, there is a strange shift in the house. Coral and Mike are actually getting along! Mike has decided

Believe it or not, there is still peace in the house. The tension and conflict seemed to have disappeared. Coral and Mike are hugging, Coral and Kevin are having serious talks, and the guys and girls are actually hanging out and enjoying it. Coral even admits that she has been going down the wrong path and intends to make a change. What happened? Meanwhile, Nicole is consumed by the fact that her dream boy, Bobby, will visit her in New York. The only problem with Bobby, Nicole says, ""is that he doesn't like me."" So Nicole devises a plan to ""get some"" from him. She will pretend that she's feeling saucy from the alcohol and will make a move on him, blaming it on the booze. The plan seems to be working at the beginning of their date, as they sip expensive champagne before heading out to a club. However, Nicole forgets that she is a ""lightweight."" After several glasses of champagne, two martinis and a body shot, Nicole is not feeling too well. Her perfect evening with Bobby turns ugly when

The boys have made a pact that they won't get involved with the girls in the house. They are going to treat them like sisters. Not surprisingly, this pact has helped improve the Lori-Kevin relationship. Lori's no longer enamored with him and Kevin has his eyes on Beth, a model he met at Nell's. Kevin and Beth connect almost immediately and quickly start dating seriously. Kevin likes her ""because we can finish each other's sentences. It's very rare when you have that with someone."" Unfortunately, it's the roomies' last month in NY and Kevin doesn't think it makes sense to get serious with someone when he's going to be leaving soon. While Kevin deals with the trials and tribulations of love, Lori is busy preparing for her final show with the Bostonians, her college a capella group. This final performance is so important to her that she's willing to get involved in a hum war with current arguing champion, Coral.

Rachel's youth is starting to show. She and Coral get in a tiff about house cleaning. Apparently they've set a schedule in the house for cleaning and Rachel's the only one that can't seem to follow it. She's used to her mom taking care of her, and it's tough getting used to being responsible for yourself. But it's even tougher when you're trying to figure out who you are while worrying about how your mom is going to react. When Mike challenges Rachel about her mom, Rachel shuts him down: ""We're not having this discussion."" Meanwhile, the whole RR gang is in town and the RW crew is excited to see them. Malik is especially psyched to see Jisela. There is always a lot of sexual tension when they both are in the room. Malik says, ""Jisela brings a lot of fun-loving spirit. A lot of energy."" And apparently that energy spreads to everyone else as Rachel finally joins in the fun when they all go out to the West End.

The Real Worlders are going to the Hamptons! As an added bonus, they're each allowed to bring someone from Casting Finals along. That's no problem for Malik, who'd been trying to get Jisela back for a visit anyway. Malik is in love with Jisela and he's letting it show. He tells Mike, ""We both really fell for each other really quickly. We both really love each other. That's just honest and true."" The other person in love in the house is Nicole. Her dream boy, Bobby, was supposed to visit at the same time as the trip, so she gets to invite him along. Lori tries to get Nicole to define the Nicole-Bobby relationship and she can't. This time, however, she doesn't have a secret plan to take advantage of him; she wants to lay it all out on the table and tell him how she feels. He's her best friend and she wants him to know how much she cares for him. Jisela arrives before everyone else and she and Malik are the cutest together. But it's obvious that while Malik is looking for a serious relati

As we've already established, Nicole wants Bobby. But he's not sure if that's what he wants. As he says, he's ""not ready to be had."" The other girls don't see what Nicole sees in Bobby. She seems to be a different person with him. For someone so assertive and in control, she lets him boss her around. Coral thinks she's way too into Bobby and she worries that Nicole ""will make a fool out of herself."" While Nicole's foolishness is in question, there's no doubt that Jisela is acting a fool while she's in the Hamptons. Jisela brought her own video camera and spends large amounts of time making fun of the guys, especially Kevin and Malik. When Malik sees the video and shares it with the other roommates, Coral gets pissed. She doesn't appreciate Jisela talking about people when she's an invited guest. She lets Jisela know that Kevin, Malik and Mike are like brothers to her and that ""if [she] was making a joke, it wasn't funny...[she] needs to clear it up."" Jisela tries to explain herself to

The gang is unprepared for the task ahead of them. When they get to K-Rock and make their pitch, they are bombarded with questions that they can't answer and seem totally underwhelmed by the whole situation.

It's the last few days in the house and everyone is reminiscing about the times they've had together. Coral and Mike have lunch together to discuss their tumultuous relationship. They reminisce about how they started off on the wrong foot, from Mike's comments about race to Coral's attacking him for the way he talks about his friends. From that difficult beginning, they've grown to trust and truly care about each other. When Coral opens up to Mike about her father leaving her when she was 9 because he had to do jail time, Mike realizes that ""this girl really trusts [him]."" Rachel, meanwhile, is delighting in making fun of Mike's alter ego, The Miz. She lets her friend Stubu wear Mike's toy belt and takes pictures of the kid and all his 40-pound glory. Mike responds by drenching Rachel in the shower and giving Stubu the Atomic Wedgie. The gang gets together for a final meal and party.

We're going to Chicago! Well, at least Aneesa, Cara, Chris, Keri, Kyle, Theo and Tonya are, and we get to tag along for the ride. We meet Theo and Tonya first and immediately there is tension because Tonya--who is from Walla Walla, Washington--doesn't have much experience with people who are different from her, and Theo happens to be a black man. But they get past the tension without much of a hitch and arrive at the bright orange door of their new home. Aneesa is the next to arrive and Theo is immediately attracted to her. Her vibrant personality and free-spiritedness (that means she likes to walk around naked) has Theo in player mode from their first handshake. When Aneesa reveals that she's a lesbian, Theo is thrown an unexpected loop. But in his mind, the fact that she's not attracted to men seems only a minor hurdle and he continues to flirt shamelessly. ""We're going to be here for four months, anything can happen,"" he reasons. The rest of the gang arrives and Chris, Kyle and Keri

After the roommates' time in the hot tub, the group wonders what Chris is hiding-they think he must have a secret. Most of them decide that Chris must be the house virgin. Chris shoots that down and shocks them all when he explains that he was deflowered by his baby-sitter when he was 12 years old. Aneesa, however, deciphers the clues and figures out the truth. Her understanding gives Chris a lot of comfort. Kyle also guesses that Chris is gay but only discusses it with Keri--he doesn't want to put Chris on the spot, especially with Theo in the house. While Theo is comfortable with Aneesa's lesbianism, he finds the idea of two men together disgusting. His constant comments about it anger Aneesa while Chris silently listens in. However, Aneesa has an interesting way of showing her unhappiness--instead of telling Theo how she feels, she gets in the shower with him and sleeps naked in bed with him. Despite all of the mixed signals, Theo apparently does understand their dynamic. He writes

First up is Jason, a guy she eyes across the sand castles and through the hard-bodies. She gives him the digits and they plan to make a date out of it. While Cara is excited about the date, she doesn't seem to really know what she wants. She still has feelings for her ex-boyfriend Jared, who apparently wants to marry her. She feels lonely when she's not with someone and needs physical affection to feel good about herself. This week she must feel absolutely great as she spends the night with a ""rock star"" and her friend from home, Nick. As she tells Theo, ""Friends can sleep together."" While Cara is busy finding where the boys are, Chris struggles with telling his roommates that ""finding the boys"" is also one of his favorite activities.

Everyone's bondingâ€¦except for Tonya. She's not about going out, she's about sitting at home talking on the phone with Justin. The rest of the gang is frustrated that she doesn't spend time with them and thinks she might be making up excuses and drama when things get hard. Kyle remarks, ""My relationship with Tonya is very much a labor of love. Occasionally, with a heavy emphasis on the labor side of things."" Meanwhile, the cast finds out that they will be working as lifeguards for Illinois State Parks and Recreation. They are all excited about the prospect of being on the beach all the time until they realize that they actually have to pass certification. Theo wants to be a lifeguard but doesn't know how to swim very well. Cara's dad is overjoyed that his daughter is following in his footsteps as a saver of lives, but the idea really scares her.

It seems pretty obvious to everyone that Keri likes Kyle and Kyle likes Keri, but there's a problem. Kyle has a long-time girlfriend at home that he really loves, Nicole, and he's trying really hard not to do anything to jeopardize their relationship. He says, ""Nicole and I met two and a half years ago and we jumped into this fairy-tale love."" Apparently the fairy tale includes Keri because Kyle seems to enjoy spending a lot of time in the same bed with her, flirting. While Kyle, Keri and the rest of the cast members are bonding in Chicago, Tonya is back in Walla Walla with Justin and her doctors. When she lands, it's pretty clear that homesickness was as big a factor in her coming home as her physical illness. Tonya says that she ""realized that Walla Walla is an incredible place with amazing people that is the closest to a home that [she's] ever had."" Keri and Kyle's flirtatious relationship isn't always wonderful. When Kyle's friends come into town, he gets stand-offish with Keri. He

After arguing with Kyle on the train, Keri decides she should start dating other people instead of pining for Kyle. She meets and makes a date with Tyler, and surprise, surprise, Kyle is more than a little bit jealous. His not-so-veiled negative remarks about the boy aren't lost on the other roommates and are definitely not lost on Keri. Which is fine, because she still really likes Kyle. After the date, she decides that Tyler's a nice guy but that playing the pseudo-dating game with Kyle is more fun. Meanwhile, Theo's finally gotten comfortable in the houseâ€¦maybe a little too comfortable. He's taken to inviting large groups of people over to party, annoy everyone else, and puke in uncool places. The roommates aren't amused, especially Chris and Aneesa, who call Theo out for his actions. Theo refuses to apologize and says he'll ""be damned if these people come down on [him] like [he's] a kid."" When Tonya returns to Chicago, she gets back in her most familiar position--on the phone.

Keri, Chris and Kyle are on the beach with their lifeguarding duties while Cara, Tonya, Aneesa and Theo are working with the Chicago Parks program helping to design and paint a mural with a children's program. Everyone seems happy with their jobs, although Kyle notes that being a lifeguard mostly means having to be a jerk. Kurt comes down to spend a week with Chris. At first, Chris seems a little overwhelmed with the amount of time and attention Kurt wants. Chris is about moving slow and Kurt is about being in a relationship and falling in love. Tonya tells Chris that she would be ""sketched"" if a guy was acting like that towards her. But Tonya is also sketched by the idea of two guys being in love with each other so what does she know about it? While Kurt is in town, there's a Human Rights Campaign Benefit Dinner and Chris and Aneesa encourage all of their roommates to attend. They all decide to go except Theo who feels like he would be

They make an immediate connection and end up hooking up in the elevator of the loft. Meanwhile, it's the first real day of work for the non-lifeguards. They meet the kids who are going to be painting the mural with them along with Lara, the Chicago Parks District Manager, who is their boss. They get the kids to start brainstorming on the mural and they all start to realize, especially Tonya and Theo, the impact that they might have on these kids lives.

They've had the fight to end all fights but Veronica is still on Aneesa's mind. Aneesa looks for sympathy and understanding from everyone but no one is interested. Her mom doesn't want to hear any more bad news, Tonya and Chris think that Aneesa should just be glad to be rid of her. But Aneesa really wants Veronica to call. Cara empathizes with her, saying, ""I don't blame Aneesa at all for still having feelings for Veronica. Sometimes when people push you away, it makes you that much more likely to attach yourself to them."" Cara may know a thing or two about this phenomenon. Her dad comes in for a quick visit and takes everyone out to dinner. Cara reveals that her dad is now living in Indiana while the rest of her family is in St. Louis, which isn't ideal. She had never felt close to her father until recently and is very appreciative of his love. After her dad leaves, she's also really appreciative of Kyle's friend Djordje.

Just as Justin is planning to visit Tonya in Chicago, she relapses with her kidney problem. The situation is so bad that Cara rushes her from work to the emergency room. Tonya is in an incredible amount of pain and explains to Cara that this was the reason that she went home the first time. After getting treated she decides she should stay home for the rest of the week, which happens to include the time that Justin will be there. Theo thinks that ""Tonya's illness is absolutely realâ€¦she's not faking it. Butâ€¦her not going to work has more to do with sex with her boyfriend."" Meanwhile, Kyle is planning a trip to his father's lakeside cabin. Everyone is planning to go and it seems like couples are forming--Tonya & Justin, Chris & Kurtâ€¦and Keri & Kyle. Kyle is concerned about how this might appear and begs Theo and Aneesa to come up early with him and Keri so it doesn't look like he's going on a ""romantic retreat"" with her.

Even with Nicole out of the way, however, Kyle won't give in to his urges and hook up with Keri. They sleep in separate rooms and don't spend much time together over the weekend. Kyle explains, ""I have a great time with Keri and I really like being with her...but Nicole is still very, very with me."" When everyone is back in Chicago, the happy romances and the cautious flirting turn sour. Chris realizes that Kurt wants a lot more out of their relationship than he is able to give. Chris wants to focus on his recovery and on trying to stay sober while he bartends, but Kurt wants a commitment. Chris calls Kurt and ends it.

One of the kids most at risk, Nelson, isn't coming around as much as he should. Theo is worried and lets Nelson know that ""he should be working on the mural again...instead of getting into trouble."" Meanwhile, Keri is having the post-Kyle blues and is getting homesick. When she gets the opportunity to go home for the weekend, she jumps at it. She wants to feel some closeness and intimacy with people who didn't go to Princeton and get her head together. While Keri's away, Kyle and Cara get closer. Cara admits that though she and Kyle are just friends, if Keri weren't in the picture, she and Kyle might ""share a drunken kiss.""

Aneesa's openness is becoming a problem for Tonya. Everyone loves a beautiful body, but Tonya is a little tired of seeing Aneesa's all the time. Aneesa's open door policy for the bathroom and frank discussions about sex put Tonya over the edge, and they have a conversation about it. Aneesa is immediately defensive, refusing to understand how her nudity could be a problem for someone else. Tonya begrudgingly agrees to try to learn to be more accepting, while Aneesa compromises as well, saying that she is ""sorry if Tonya was made to feel uncomfortable."" Meanwhile, Cara's ex-boyfriend Ali comes to visit. He's ""evil."" He's ""the boyfriend from hell."" He'sâ€¦cute! Cara is a very forgiving ex-girlfriend, apparently. Though Ali supposedly ""crushed"" her the last time, she doesn't hold any ill will, and after a brief tug of war, they are touching and groping.

Aneesa, however, does seem to be annoying everyone else. She won't do the chores when its her turn, taking days and days to wash the dishes. Theo wants to â€˜ground' her but Cara decides to just wash the dishes for her instead of confronting Aneesa about it. Kyle asks Cara, 'When am I gonna see you pissed off?' Meanwhile, all isn't well in Walla Walla. Tonya passes a kidney stone and has to return to the hospital. She's scared to go though because she's already in tremendous medical debt and doesn't want to get deeper in. Plus, she's worried she's going to lose her waitressing job. But she's sick and the roommates take her to the hospital so she can get well. They are all very concerned for her. Theo even writes her a note and goes to visit her while she's there.

The roommates decide to celebrate the end of their jobs with a night out with drinks. Chris isn't interested in celebrating that way and heads home to the chagrin of Kyle. Kyle doesn't know how to deal with someone who's battling alcoholism and is struggling to understand.

Even though their relationship supposedly ended a few weeks ago, Keri reveals that they still hook up pretty regularly and that Kyle is always interested in her after she comes back from going out on dates. And sure enough, after Keri goes out on a blind date with a friend of Cara's, Kyle is all over her again. Meanwhile, after going out on a date with Danielle, Aneesa loses the keys to the minivan.

The roommates then all decide to join Cara on a trip to St. Louis to meet her family and support her while she spends some time with Jared. Chris can't go because he has a family emergency and Tonya chooses not to go so she can work. The roommates are annoyed that Tonya would rather spend her time alone in the house than spend time with them. The time away from each other provides ample opportunity to be 'chatty.' Tonya spends much of her time on the phone completely railing on Cara, Aneesa, Keri and Kyle to Justin. It's not to unfair though, considering how the others spend much of their car ride to St. Louis ragging on her.

Her illness has kept her from group trips, from participating fully at work and from becoming a part of the close-knit group of friends. When she informs them that she can't go on the trip to New England, the gang wonders whether or not she is using her sickness as an excuse because it just so happens that Justin is coming to Chicago at the same time. While everyone else makes fun of Tonya when she's not there, Theo has had enough and lets her know what he and everyone else thinks about how she's handling things. The argument brings Tonya to tears. When Justin arrives, he confronts Theo about the incident. The two have an intense discussion and come to some agreement.

While the rest of the gang is in Boston visiting haunted houses, including 'Spooky World,' Tonya is in Chicago working on their assignment there. Neither party seems to missing one another very much. However, Kyle feels pangs of guilt for not staying in contact with Tonya and Chris feels bad that he has been participating in the Tonya bashing. Cara then reveals that the only reason she defends Tonya is because she thinks 'someone has to'. Everyone is tense as they return to the house, not knowing what to expect from the relationship between Tonya and the rest of the gang. When they return, they all come to the realization that they have very little time to get their performances together. When they see the space they are going to be performing in, it's a shock. They expected something like spooky world and instead its just a very 'not-so-spooky' tent. They hanker down, and begin practicing with Cara taking the lead as the director.

There is also something else going on between Cara and Kyle and the new coupling seems to be adept at keeping Keri on the outside looking in. When it gets down to the wire and Keri's skit isn't where Cara wants it. She asks Keri if they can cut it. Keri, who seems to let things roll off her back with ease, agrees, although she thinks that it is going to have to happen anyway because their job requires them to do three. When Cara explains to Laura, their boss, that she wants to cut the skit, she claims that one of the major reasons is that Tonya is going into surgery. Tonya is unwilling

Kyle's younger brother, Austin, watches the Halloween performance and stays at the house for an overnight visit. It's a sweet moment, but Tonya and Keri think that it's being done for the cameras. They rarely think that Kyle is sincere, and as their time gets shorter in the house, it's getting harder for them to keep up appearances for his benefit. Kyle's actions don't help much as he worries that he's used his time in Chicago poorly and worries more about how he will be perceived if he participates in a charity fashion show. The rehearsal process makes Kyle feel like he is ""gay,"" but he learns to enjoy the ""acting"" element of modeling, and because it's for a good cause, he participates. Everyone in the house shows up at the fashion show to support Chris and Kyle's successful walks on the runway. However, all isn't sunshine and roses between Kyle and Keri.

This season on The Real World, Steven, Trishelle, Irulan, Alton, Frank, Arissa and Brynn are livin' it up in Las Vegas. Steven and Trishelle are the first to arrive. They scope out their new living arrangements on the 28th floor of the recently built Palms hotel, and continue to chat it up while they wait for the rest of their roommates. Trishelle, a seemingly naÃ¯ve, sweet girl from Cut Off, Louisiana, is excited for the new friendships and experiences that await her. ""I'm excited to get the chance to live with people of other races,"" she informs her new roommates. Brynn, the final member to show up at the hotel (and someone who claims she gets whatever she wants), is a little disappointed to discover that she has to share her living space-and the guys-with three attractive women.

As the boys work out in the hotel gym, the subject at hand is girls, girls, girls. Steven is still trying to convince Frank that he has it all sewn up with Trishelle while at the same time informing everyone that he's not attracted to Brynn. He'd ""stick her"" if the opportunity arose but he's not squirreling for her nuts. Meanwhile, Trishelle asks Brynn what she thinks about Frank. ""What do YOU think about Frank?"" Brynn retorts. Trishelle states that he has certain qualities that she looks for in a guy, but that she also finds herself physically attracted to Steven. ""I really don't want to get involved with one of my roommates, but if it happens, it's out of my control,"" explains Trishelle. Later, a discussion takes place concerning Steven's wedding and bride, who he is newly separated from. Brynn could care less about Steven's nuptials.

Trishelle is a good girl. At least she was until she landed in Vegas with a young man named Steven. The intensity and excitement of being in this situation has had an unexpected effect -- our southern girl has gone wild! When she makes out with Brynn, she realizes that she may have stepped outside the bounds of what people at home expect of her and decides to soften the blow. She calls her stepsister and confesses to her sins and then asks her to inform her father. She hopes to avoid dealing with him directly but when he calls back he reprimands her and reminds her that she's not only representing herself but her family and that kissing girls, especially when she's not gay, is not the right way to go about it. Trishelle feels like crap after the call. All she wants is his approval and love but she seems unable to attain it. Meanwhile, Alton receives news from his ex-girlfriend that she might be pregnant. He's so not ready for that news. She doesn't know for sure but she's really late a

This year, The Real Worlders' job is to throw parties. Sounds tough, right? Actually, it is, as they are responsible for providing much of the entertainment for the Palms' signature club, Rain. Everyone is very excited about the prospect of getting to promote and plan these kinds of events. Everyone, that is, except for Brynn who is less about the job and more about dancing and having a good time. Brynn is all about fun...and fun means hanging out until the wee hours of the morning with a bartender and then vomiting in the middle of orientation for the new job. Yay, fun! She informs her roommates that they need to kick her in the butt to keep her motivated or else she's going to end up screwing up work because she doesn't really care about the gig. Meanwhile, Arissa is missing her boyfriend. Missing his touch, missing sleeping with someone else in her bed and now, all of a sudden, she's finding Steve kind of cute. Steve?

There's something going on between Marc and Irulan. Their not-so-subtle flirting is turning into them spending a lot of time together and some pretty heavy physical interaction. Because Marc is her boss, Irulan doesn't really know how to let him know that its going to far. And maybe, she wants it to go a little farther. While she doesn't find him hot, he is smart and funny and she's feeling a little lonely and missing Gabe and so the playful touching might be okay, they might even be able to sleep in the same bed together but she doesn't want anything more. When Marc tries to take it there, she is upset about it and the girls in the house start calling him a 'molester.' Alton, not wanting Marc to get a reputation he might not deserve, encourages Irulan to deal with the situation rather than spread rumors about him. Meanwhile, Frank, again, has put his foot in his mouth. While talking to a friend back home, he jokes about and with Arissa and its funny for awhile. When he calls Arissa th

She shares a room with Trishelle and that is the room in which the couple most often knocks boots. It's not the most ideal situation. Hey, Jealousy! But perhaps that's a little unfair. The level of kertanking between Steven and Trishelle has reached such high proportions that Frank can't sleep and Irulan must encourage them to not spread their bootissy juices throughout other areas of the house. Frank even goes so far as to suggest that Brynn switch places with Steven so that the couple could have some privacy. Brynn doesn't like that idea. In fact, she doesn't like a lot of what's going on and after an exchange of words with Steven, throws a fork at him.

Brynn and Steven are decked out in devilishly delicious attire, while Irulan and Alton are perfect little angels. But, instead of the traditional guy-girl dance partners, Brynn and Irulan decide to sex it up a bit and do a sensual ski dance with each other, while Steven and Alton do some very heterosexual man dancing. Alton has to deal with some of his fears about appearing ""gay"" and battles with Jean over the outfits he wants him to wear. While Alton has to be dragged kicking and screaming to the performance, Brynn is all about it. ""I like to be the center of attention,"" says Brynn. ""I'm not always, but I like it when I am.""

The girls think Trishelle has a problem. She doesn't eat much or she'll eat a whole lot and then dissapear to the bathroom. They think that she has ""issues with food."" Irulan and Arissa, having both dealt with eating disorders in the past, want to help Trishelle deal with the situation but they don't know exactly how. And hey, maybe it's all conjecture and Trishelle doesn't really have a problem. Frank doesn't seem to think so and thinks that it's just about people needing drama in their lives. Arissa, however, has a heart-to-heart with Trishelle and they talk it out with both feeling better after the conversation. Meanwhile, Alton definitely has a problem. His ""wood"" has gotten so long that, apparently, he can no longer wear pants. Irulan is so mortified by this turn of events. If ""mortified"" is defined as horny and aggressive.

Meanwhile, Irulan has pitched a tent in the middle of the living room so that Dario and Arissa can have their privacy in the bedroom. Alton sees this as an opportunity to take his relationship with Irulan to the next level. Steven warns him about falling for her because Irulan is obviously committed to Gabe and while their ""open relationship"" might work for them it probably won't work for Alton.

But, apparently, they love hanging out with each other and kissing other people in each other's presence. It's very mature and adult of them that they can deal with each other being in new relationships so soon after their breakup.

On the train Mallory talks about visiting the Louvre, while CT uses the ride as an opportunity to hit on her. First to arrive, CT and Mallory bound up the steps of the chateau and they explore the ma

The new roommates are out partying until the wee hours of the morning at a club called Le Paris. The girls get wild by dancing on the bar and Leah, puffing on a cigarette, flirts with Ace. She informs him she wants to bite his butt, but probably should kiss him first. Ace makes it clear that he's not into girls who smoke and rebuffs her advances. Meanwhile, Adam flirts fruitlessly with Mallory. His ""subtle"" advances are not winning her over. Back at the chateau, Ace reveals to Leah that his mother died of breast cancer a few years ago, which prompts Leah to make a decision to quit smoking. She tells Mallory that she feels like she's spitting in Ace's face every time she lights up. Ace is proud of Leah for trying to quit. Adam finally comes to the realization that he doesn't have a ""snowflake's chance in hell"" with Mallory, so instead of being mature about it, he proceeds to act bitter and angry towards some of his cast mates.

Christina insists that she'd much rather date a guy who can cook her eggs exactly the way she likes them, rather than a guy who's good in bed. It's got something to do with attention to detailâ€¦ Yeah, the roommates don't buy it either and faster than you can say ""Egg McMuffin,"" sexual tension begins to sizzle between Christina and CT. Christina says CT has the hottest body in the house and we all know what CT thinks of Christina's bangin' bawdy. Oh my Gawd. Christina takes her analogy a step further and demonstrates to CT exactly how she likes her eggs fried. CT gets the distinct impression that she's giving him a step-by-step manual on how to get to her heart. CT enjoys flirting with Christina and admits he's been practicing making her eggâ€¦just in case. Meanwhile, southern-fried Ace is having a hard time adjusting to the Parisian lifestyle and cuisine. He'd much rather be driving a SUV while sinking his teeth into a Royale with Cheese that's ""super-sized with America."" He looks like he

Ace and Mallory frolic in the snow like two lovebirds. Mallory later insists to Simon that she will not act on her feelings for Ace. Translation: She's not going to act on her feelings while she's sober or while the cameras are around. Unhappy with the tension that's building in the house, Ace decides to bring some of his Southern home to France and that apparently involves a garbage can and an ""ass-load"" of alcohol. Being a professional bartender, one would expect that Ace could mix a drink in a large IKEA garbage can with the best of them. He doesn't disappoint. The Trash Can Saloon is open for business and Ace challenges Mallory to a drinking contest. Others soon join in, but Mallory is confident she can drink everyone under the table. Adam steals Leah away for a moment to apologize to her. A stone-faced Leah does not make it easy for him, plus she explains that in ""real life"" she would just cut him out of her life and not feel bad about it. She has never forgiven anyone for anythin

Wondering when things were gonna get petty in Paris? How about, like, right now. ""You know, I haven't taken a hot shower since I've been here,"" Leah barks at CT. CT doesn't seem to show much consideration for his roommates and Leah just loves bossing people around. Still pleading ignorance, Mallory tells Leah that she had no clue how disrespectful she was the other night. Ace says that it's the best time he had since scarfing down a Quarter-Pounder at Mickey Dees. OK, not really. But he did say it was the best night out that he's had since he arrived in France. This makes Mallory happy and she temporarily forgets about how out of control she was. Some of the roommates get ready for the opening of the club, which means Ace will be donning his monkey suit for the occasion. Leah is now barking hair styling orders at CT while he fixes Ace's hair. Ace looks embarrassed to be in the middle of such a fuss. Leah chooses this as her opportunity to unload all of her frustration onto CT. CT says

Brice instructs them that he must receive all of their assignments together by a 6 p.m. deadline. Adam wonders what the odds are that they will get their assignment done on time.

Valentine's Day is near and if amour with a side of drama tickles your fancy, then there's plenty of that at The Real World chateau on this lover's holiday. Pre-V-Day, CT knocks down the girls' straightening iron in his morning stupor. Leah tells him to pick it up. CT makes fun of Leah because she's telling him what to do. Leah thinks CT has no regard for other people's things. Christina chimes in that CT is the most difficult person to live with in the house. Despite Leah's insults, CT refuses to pick up the straightening iron. Ah, love is in the air. CT says he feels like the girls have been on his case too much and he doesn't understand what he needs to do to get them to like him. Ace suggests that he should just be a little more understanding and considerate of his roommates. Leah calls her mom for comfort and complains about the difficulties she's been having with CT's hygienic care, or lack thereof. She wonders, ""Should I still be nice to him even if I don't mean it?""

Adam is still trying to pull chicks wherever he goes. Here a chick; there a chick; everywhere a chick-chick. The roommates are still wondering what Adam is trying to prove by meeting so many women. He says he is in constant search of ""that feeling"" that he gets when he's around girls. He claims that he is at his personal best the first 15 minutes people meet him, then it's all down hill from there. Adam meets Talayeh at a Paris club and is quickly smitten. He invites her back to the chateau and into his bed, but she informs him that she has been in Paris for six months and hasn't hooked up with anyone yet and she's not going to sleep with him that night. Adam's response to her confession? ""It's hard cuz you're really, really hot."" On their second date Adam spends the night at her house, but as they get closer, he's wary of the word ""exclusive,"" so he goes out another night and kisses some chick named Anna.

Mallory is tip-toeing around the house lately because she's afraid of Leah's evil looks and her wrath that ultimately follows. Mal confides in Tina about Leah's brashness and wonders what she should do about it. When the two get locked in the Frommer's office, Leah theorizes that they just wanted to get out of cleaning the house. Back at the house, Leah is orchestrating a massive clean-up of the chateau in preparation for her brother Pascual's visit. Leah gushes over her brother like he is the best thing since sliced baguettes. Among the things she calls him: her hero, a good soul, and her favorite person in the whole world. Behind her back, Leah calls Mallory lazy and dirty. Ace defends her honor by saying that Mallory is still young and will learn eventually. To Mallory's face, Leah isn't much nicer. ""Mallory, I love you and I don't want to pick on you, but when there's a dish of candy out could you not put your apple core in it."" Mallory does not appreciate the public humiliation. B

Christina concludes that although they live together and work together, the roommates don't really know a lot about each other on a personal level. Ace illustrates her point by quizzing Christina on his little sister's name. She has no clue, yet CT informs her it's Kathleen. She is disturbed that CT knows a bit of information that she doesn't, but Ace lets her off the hook by telling her he doesn't really have a little sister. As punishment for the prank, Christina begins a flirty ketchup fight with Ace that ends with some huggin'. Ace admits he'd try and kiss or hook-up with Christina, but he'd never date her. Wasting no time, Ace crawls into bed with Christina to snuggle and asks for a kiss. She obliges, but when he asks if he can kiss her stomach, she denies him of the privilege. She boosts his ego by telling him that he's the best roommate she's ever had, though. Between flirting and partying, some work has to get done. CT does not attend a meeting at the Frommer's office, which pr

After the night of the rowdy pool game, the roomies must get their assignment done and emailed to Brice by 6pm. No one, not even the goldfish, has confidence that CT (the point person) will get their reviews in on time. Christina continues to give CT the cold shoulder and is still bristling about the consequences of having a bed one floor beneath the pool table, so she talks to Adam about moving into his room. Of course, Adam welcomes the idea of having a hot chick as a roommate, but doesn't want any bad blood between him and CT as a result of the switch. Ace confides in Leah about Christina's issues with him and admits that sometimes the only person he thinks of is himself. She closes the conversation with what some might describe as excessive kissing and straddling of the Ace-miester who looks extremely uncomfortable. With an hour and thirteen minutes to go before the assignment is due Leah and Christina turn their reviews in and leave the chateau. Turns out, the group is short four

The roommates gather at the Frommer's office with advisor David, and in a conference call with boss man Brice, they learn they won't receive a bonus due to their incomplete assignment. CT puts on his best ""What did I do?"" face. Simon complains about the ""all or nothing"" rule and tells Brice that they actually gave CT all the ""Tips & Finds"" -then an argument ensues. Brice reiterates the need for them to communicate, while he probably has his secretary get the cast of Road Rules on the horn. Poor David tries out his best travel cheer to bring the group together, but there is too much tension in the air, and the roommates need more than a scribe to help them sort out their issues. Raising his voice, David chants, ""Can we say that our energy is going to get positive now?"" Leah shoots back a quick ""No"" and storms out, grumbling about not getting her 250 Euro bonus. Still reluctant to add the word ""forgive"" to her vocab, Leah wonders why she should let someone off the hook when they do somet

Ace is ready for a visit from his girlfriend Kate. ""The roommates in the house are getting hotter and hotter,"" he jokes. ""By god, Simon is starting to look good to me."" His attraction to Simon aside, Ace is fairly confident that the drunken kisses he's shared with Mallory and Christina don't count and will not be an issue with Kate. He talks about how serious his feelings are for Kate and tells his roommates that, not only is she the prettiest girl he's every dated, she's the only girl he has dated that he can see marrying. Ace and Kate share an awkward greeting at the airport and he brings her back to the chateau to introduce her to the roommates. On the train ride to the house, Kate describes Ace as ""kind of a boyfriend"" which upsets Ace and sets the tone for the entire visit. Meanwhile, back at the chateau, Mallory tells Simon that she was supposed to clean Ace's room for 20 Euro, but since she's busy (doing what?), she asks Simon if he can fill in for her.

Simon, Leah and Christina ridicule Mallory and her collection of shoes, which they think lack a certain femininity. ""Who the hell pays attention to shoes?"" Mallory asks. This comment elicits a look of horror from stylish Simon. Mallory admits that she just feels more comfortable in her sweaters and sweat pants and her clunky shoes. Stephanie, Adam's chick de jour, goes out with him and the roommates. Adam describes his new gal pal as a bit standoffish, but he's chalking it up to the fact that they are just getting to know each other. So he blows 500 Euro on her in one night, overdraws his account and is crossing his fingers that her standoffishness will now magically turn into a goodnight kiss. As they say goodnight, Adam moves in for the kiss and Stephanie opts for the shoulder pat and the ""I had a really good time"" line. She says goodbye with a French phrase that poor Adam is unfamiliar with. If he had attended a few more French classes, he might know that ""A demain,"" means ""until to

The roommates receive information about their upcoming vacation and learn that they have the power to plan the entire trip.

Leah and Simon represent the shop-o-holics, while Ace, CT and Adam are the eating at a cafÃ© exhibiting shop-o-phobic symptoms. Christina and Mallory fall somewhere between as they walk the streets of Florence while men flirt with them. They are surprised by how straightforward the Italians are. Over lunch, Leah admits to Simon that if a guy she met didn't drive a fancy car, the chances of him talking to her were ""slim to none."" When she met her boyfriend, he changed everything. Nothing else mattered except that she had him. They dated for three and a half years and it was the happiest and most confident that she's ever been. She says that she now feels that she is being held captive by this feeling of wondering whether or not she'll have that again.

""I'm telling you, we live with seven people and six of us hate him."" CT looks sad, but barely bats an eye because he knows to expect this from Leah. CT has an unexpected defense attorney in Matt who tells Leah that CT has been nothing but nice and he doesn't understand why she would say such a thing. By the end of the evening, even this guy Matt is embarrassed by her actions. Growing more and more pissed at Leah, Mallory thinks her comments about CT were ""completely out of line."" Christina has been avoiding being in Leah's presence because she is so loud. And Simon thinks Leah doesn't care about what other people think.

The roommates return to a messy house after their trip around Europe. Ace feels like he cleans the house more than anyone, but it's a thankless job and no one every notices his good deeds. On a recent cleaning escapade, he picked up Christina's clothes and put them in her closet, not realizing that some items were clean and some were ready to be washed. Christina unleashes her wrath, even though he meant no harm, and Ace tries to apologize. She retires to her closet to let out a yelp of frustration. Mistakenly thinking he was helping out again, Ace put Leah's clothes in the dryer which shrunk a good portion of them. Now she is not happy and Ace is feeling like no matter what he does, he's not helping. Feeling bummed about the tension in the house, Ace chooses not to show up to their Frommer's meeting, so CT and some of the other roommates, thinking they can get away with it, try and cover for him.

Later Adam confides in Ace that it's getting more and more difficult for him to be around CT because he ""acts like a pompous jerk all the damn time."" Meanwhile, CT is on the phone with his friend Knuckles telling him how Adam acts like a ""clown."" Where is the love? CT says he wasn't brought up the way everyone else in the house was brought up. Meaning he was brought up to be a ""pompous jerk?"" Not sure what he's getting at. Adam continues his rant and tells Ace how CT was wearing a pair of Adam's socks and trying to pass them off as his own; he theorizes that CT is a pathological liar. He may be right, he may be crazy. Apparently CT's drunken phone call to his ex a few weeks back didn't do too much damage, because CT says he and Jamie miss each other so she's going to come to Paris to visit. Maybe we'll get t

He admits that he doesn't want to let her go because he feels less alone when she's here. Christina learns that CT told Jamie's friend Wendy that he feels very alone in the house. This makes her sad, but Christina says she doesn't feel like she knows CT at all. She can't predict anything that he does, ever. Simon explains they are tired of getting their buttons pushed by CT.

For a long time, Leah really thought that no one was going to love her as much as her ex-boyfriend. Then she went to Florence and met Giuseppe.

He said he felt like she was playing games with him. ""I said some dumb things,"" CT admits.

CT is on the s-t list again. Simon tells his roommates about how CT put him into a headlock while they were taking a picture. It wasn't a friendly, brotherly headlock, it actually hurt. Adam said CT was clearly aggressive and going after Simon, but thought Simon had himself handled because he walked away from the situation after telling CT to screw off. That wasn't good enough, though, because Simon wondered why Adam or Ace didn't back him up and tell CT to stop being such an idiot. Leah makes it known that she would have stepped in and said something to CT if she was there. Suddenly, the conversation turns to the incident in Switzerland where Mallory brings up the fact that people in the house have a problem with Leah. Apparently, Leah hasn't been able to let go of this, so she storms out at the room. Mallory tells Simon she is pissed that Leah can't let anything go, so Mallory speaks with Leah in the bathroom and asks why she brought up the incident in Switzerland again. Mallory's hu

Despite previous failed attempts at exclusivity, Adam confesses that he thinks they are getting closer to that exclusive type of relationship. When Adam turns into Nelly and tells her she's so hot, he wants to take her closes off, she says, ""Never."" Whoa! That throws him for a loop, but of course that makes her more desirable.

When All-American Ace calls his sweetheart, he either gets an answering machine or she only wants to talk for a few minutes, so he's finally putting two and two together and is pretty sure that their time is up. To make matters worse, Kate sent Ace a strongly worded email that upset him so much that when Adam comes over to play around while Ace on the computer, Ace tells him he needs a second. Seriously. Unfortunately, this is not the first time a girl has ditched him that he really liked. So what does Ace do to cheer himself up? He spends a $1000 at the strip club and had a grand ol' time.

Ace is looking forward to southern belles, Georgia peaches, waffles and bacon--not necessarily in that order. Leah coos over pictures of her and Giuseppe. She says she does not expect much from their relationship since she lives in NY and he resides in Italy, but it was a very romantic and fun time that she'll never forget.

On their second night in the house, Cameran notes that Brad is everything she doesn't like in a guy, but for some reason, she is attracted to him. Jamie, the sharp cute chick, smells a hook up.

Shaun still talks to his ex all the time and it's a touchy subject for Shavonda. Shavonda emailed Shaun a ""cuddle card"" and since he didn't mention receiving it during their conversation, she decides to log on to his email and see if he got it. What she found were a bunch of travel confirmations and she soon came to the conclusion that his ex-girlfriend had bought a ticket for him to go to Texas that day.

Unfortunately, there is a ""no fraternizing"" rule in their intern contract, but that doesn't stop Landon from flirting or inviting Gina back to the house. The question of the day is: What exactly does fraternizing mean? Does it mean you can't have coffee with a Soul staffer? Or does it mean you can't dance seductively at Glam with a Soul staffer and then kiss her? The gang learns they will participate in the Easter Seals walk-a-thon, but Shavonda is not happy because since she was little, she has been uncomfortable around disabled people. The Special Ed kids were mean to her when she was a child and she still carries this discomfort with her. Soul staffer Laura tells her to give the walk-a-thon a shot and see how she feels.

On a happier romantic note, McKenzie gives Mary the night off when she meets Travis, a cute, spring-breaker who is more into talking that drinking. With Knight exploring his options, Jemmye is left with the need to go to Kodi's game, so she and Ashlee venture to Baton Rouge, where they not only run into Kodi, but twenty of his closest family members. With somewhat of a shrug off from her baller boyfriend, Jemmye is more confused that ever as the roommates go into the final Mardi Gras celebration, Fat Tuesday. At the bar, McKenzie runs into Travis and she learns that, like herself, he is a fellow blacker-outer. But while they might be a match made in foggy-memoried heaven, Travis has to return home, leaving McKenzie without a man but with a valuable lesson: if you blackout a lot, you might want to cut back on the drinking. Fresh off her encounter with Kodi, and filled to the brim with Bourbon Street's finest booze, Jemmye confides in Knight th

6: Sing out, Cop out
The Cold War heats up when Eric tattles and tells Ryan that Preston scrubbed the toilet with his beloved electric toothbrush. After having wiped Preston's cigarettes in his Grand Canyon, Ryan decides to pay Preston back even more by destroying his favorite hat. Knight urges Ryan to settle his war the Hockey Boy Method, waiting outside the house and punching Preston in the face, (but more so just threatening to.) Sahar, or "Hollywood" as the roommates call her, feels inspired by being in New Orleans and wants to use the opportunity to pursue her music. Later, Knight fuels the fire between Preston and Ryan by telling Ryan that Preston, in addition to using his toothbrush as a toilet bowl cleaner, also peed on it.To avoid the chaos about to ensure in the house, Sahar takes the girls out to see Theresa Anderson, a local musician and one woman show. After the show Sahar meets Theresa and hits it off with her, perhaps she will get the tutelage she needs after all. The next day, Jemmey's mother, Alice, who affectionately refers to her daughter as "The Little Slut Puppy," pays the roommates a visit. Knight, ever the classy gentleman, takes mother and daughter out on Bourbon Street for a romantic horse & carriage ride and, of course, a round of shots. Ryan decides to get back at Preston one final time by calling the cops and explaining The Toothbrush Situation. The cops come to the house and interrupt the criminal Preston, who they find red-handed lying on the couch and reading. All the roommates hold back laughter as the cops ask Preston and Ryan to come down to the police station and give their statements. A heart to heart between mother and daughter reveals that Alice thinks Knight is good for Jemmye and that he can help break down her barriers and begin to trust men again. Meanwhile, on the other side of town Theresa invites Sahar over to jam. With her new found mentor and filled with inspiration, Sahar makes a vow to get on stage before she leaves New Orleans or die

7: Buliding & Breaking
Lady Gaga fever is hitting New Orleans hard as Ashlee, Sahar and Preston dress up to attend a theme party. But when Knight sees Preston in a drag, the testosterone fueled Hockey Boy fires insults left and right. The next day, the roommates take the Katrina Tour and see just how much of New Orleans was devastated and how much needs to be rebuilt. Wanting to give back, McKenzie asks the roommates to help her build a house with Habitat for Humanity. All the roommates are eager to help... except for Ryan, a true giver, who thinks he'd be better suited helping the victims of Katrina by doing hair. When Sahar begins to feel the love pangs pulling at her heartstrings, she calls home to find out that Pablo hooked up with another girl. Being in an open relationship, they both enjoyed their right to hook up with other people, but with Pablo so far away and jealousy setting in, Sahar is beginning to rethink her decision. After a successful day working with Habitat for Humanity, the roommates go out to celebrate. Knight begins to see McKenzie in a different light, perhaps it's her bright, shining compassion, and thinks maybe she, not Jemmye, is the girl for him. But while McKenzie is willing to indulge Knight in some harmless flirting, she draws the line at that. With Knight putting the moves on McKenzie and McKenzie playing hard to get, Jemmye is left watching this all unfold before her eyes, and wonders that maybe Knight isn't the trustworthy, gentleman she once thought he was. With Sahar boiling from the Pablo Situation and the McKenzie/Knight/Jemmye Triangle brewing, she tells Knight he's being disrespectful. Taking no prisoners, Knight immediately goes in for the kill and rubs salt in the Pablo-inflicted wound. The next day, with Sahar still plotting his demise, Knight avoids the situation altogether by going to watch a hockey game with Preston. During their man-date, Preston opens up to Knight about the pressures he feels to be a man and how his sexuality sometimes g

8: Saint Patrick's Secrets
It's Saint Patrick's Day on Bourbon Street and Knight is looking to pee green. As half the roommates spend the holiday helping others at the New Orleans Mission, Knight, Jemmye, Preston and McKenzie celebrate in the traditional style of drinking until they get lost, get in a fight with a telephone, cry, run away and black out. And boy do they! McKenzie accidentally strays from the pack, and is left wandering the streets of New Orleans. With some well-needed alone time, Knight and Jemmye continue to celebrate and have a relationship conversation ending in Knight deciding to have sex with other women, but Jemmye that night. Back at the Mission, Ryan has an eye-opening conversation with a twenty-one year-old homeless man, Carlos. Feeling the good deeds done, the roommates return to the house to get ready so they can join their friends. However, they're in for a surprise when they come home to find the house in shambles after Hurricane Jemmye stormed through, flipping over coffee tables and ripping the phone out of the wall. Meanwhile, McKenzie is still lost, but has found comfort in the arms of a sexy stranger, Grant, who promises to keep her safe, as long as she continue to hang out and drink with him. Looking to call it a night, McKenzie and Grant go back to Hell House. Upon finding the phone dismantled and no way to call a cab (because cell phones don't exist yet), McKenzie and Grant have nothing else to do but make out... all over the house. Now able to walk, Jemmye decides that she wants to go home, so she throws on some over-sized sweats, no shoes and heads east towards Mississippi. When Ashlee talks her off someone else's stoop, she brings Jemmye home and tucks her into bed. The next morning, everyone is a little dazed, to say the least. Blackout Queen McKenzie and Emotional Wreck Jemmye go grocery shopping and talk about the issues that Jemmye is clearly not dealing with. After the night she had, Jemmye decides that she must confront her issues with domestic

It's a double serving of weird, when a pet fish dies, Ryan and Knight fry it up and feast. As Ryan goes throughout the house offering the exotic delicacy to the roommates, his eccentric behavior seems to be bothering them more than usual. All he did was cook and eat a dead pet fish! Later that night, the roommates go out for some well-needed party time and we get to meet drunk Ryan, a fun-loving guy who only wants to hit his head into the car window and punch the back of a seat. Back at the house, while he beats his head into the headboard, Ryan confesses to Sahar that he has an extreme case of obsessive-compulsive disorder. She offers her support to him and things begin to look up for Ryan. That is until we see him creeping around the house in the middle of the night via night vision cameras. The next morning, Ashlee realizes that all her Percocet are missing. After giving one to Ryan, she asks him where he thinks they might be. Ryan gives a shrug and suggests that the former prescription pill junkie, Knight, might have something to do with their disappearance. Amidst rumors flying around the house about who stole the Percocet, Eric decides to perform standup comedy, his subject, the "Peeing on the Toothbrush Incident." Too soon. As Sahar watches Eric perform, she begins to feel the stage pulling at the strings of her heart.

As Ryan continues to isolate himself, the roommates realize how much fun they can have without him. The roommates enjoy the day golfing while Ryan sleeps in again; when they return home to a messy house, Ryan once again separates himself from the rest of the house and refuses to clean. Cute and cuddly McKenzie has had enough of the other blonde in the house and thinks the roommates should have an intervention with him, but when Eric talks to him one on one all seems to be understood... or is it? As tensions grow in the house, Ryan's brother and cousin, dubbed Brother & Cousin come to NOLA for Ryan's birthday weekend. Hoping the older and possibly more matured family members will be able to talk some sense into their eccentric roommate, the other Real Worlders are in for more than they bargained for when Brother & Cousin are even more rambunctious than the blonde bombshell. Love is in the air in New Orleans as Preston might have found his match in Marty, a cute nerdy boy that he takes out for ice cream. Eric, having already struck out with Sahar, finds a similar looking cutey in Michelle, a girl who he woos and takes back to the house for a slumber party. Eric's only mistake, he leaves her alone in his bed for 5 minutes in which time Ryan climbs into bed with her and asks her for her friend's phone number, effectively cock-blocking Eric. Michelle leaves and Eric is left feelings frustrated with only Ryan to cuddle with. It's Ryan's birthday and in good fashion, Ryan, Brother & Cousin hit Bourbon Street and drink like prohibition is coming back. The only drawback to their day filled with fun? They leave the house car somewhere on Bourbon Street.

11: Over Knight
With the dark cloud known as Ryan out of the Real World house, it's nothing but blue skies for the remaining roommates as they enjoy some bonding time in a gator ridden boat ride. And as Jemmye and Knight act more "coupley" than ever, Ashlee decides it's time for wedding. For sober or for drunk, till liquor do them part! The roommates have fun planning Knight and Jemmye's faux wedding, but when the groom gets wind of the situation he wants nothing to do with it and Jemmye feels like she's been left at the altar. Continuously ragging on Jemmye, the Bridezilla decides enough is enough and storms in on Knight, cuddling with Preston no less, and gives him a few good knocks in the face. Knight's black and blue is something new and it seems like the abused has now become the abuser. At The Mission, Loretta throws a curveball the roommates' way when she asks them to live as the homeless for one day. So the gang packs up their overnight sacks and head over to The Mission for their homeless sleepover. When Knight and Ashlee get bored of camping outside, they decide to run away and hit up a bar. But when Loretta catches them, they've got some answering to do. With Sahar's boyfriend, Pablo, coming to visit the same weekend she's set to perform with a local band, Flow Tribe, she's got a full dance card. When Pablo comes to the house with two of his buddies we learn a few things about him that we didn't previously know, like his name is actually Elie, he has groomed eyebrows, wears adorned t-shirts, drinks like a fish and according to one of his bro-buddies, "gets more ass than a toilet seat." But really, he can't be all that bad and he proves this to the roommates when he boys a bottle of vodka for the roommates to share over brunch, the morning of his girlfriends fated gig. As the day goes on Pablo/Elie doesn't slow down one bit and continues to drink until he can barely walk, talk or remember which girl in the house he's supposed to be showing affection to... and that's st

It's the roommates' last week together and in New Orleans, which means it's time to get nostalgic. As Jemmye wonders whether or not she and Knight can go the distance he decides it's time for one more crazy day. The roommates head down to The Creole Creamery and cheer on Eric and Knight as they try to down 8 scoops of ice cream in one sitting. If only it weren't for Eric's weak stomach and Knight's lactose intolerance, they might have actually been able to pull it off. For Eric, Knight and McKenzie, it's their last day at Habitat for Humanity and they celebrate putting the last coast of paint on the house and handing the keys to the happy owner. Back at the house, Pablo sends an apology to the roommates and Sahar in fruit basket form. When Sahar gushes over the Edible Arrangement, Preston takes her outside and tries to knock some sense into her. Fruit does not make up for that behavior, but Sahar doesn't know if she's ready to end things with Pablo, she has to think. The next day, as the roommates get themselves pretty for an MTV photo shoot, their dreaded ex-roommate comes for a visit. Everyone steers clear of Ryan as they put on fake smiles and try to make it through the day without any drama. And with everything that's been going wrong with Preston and Ashlee's radio station internship, they finally find a piece they want to go live with. At the radio station, Ashlee and Preston go on the air with a piece on New Orleans cuisine and it goes off without a hitch. It's the last night in New Orleans and the roommates and their NOLA friends celebrate with their own crawfish boil. But when Preston tries to give a heart-warming speech, Knight interrupts him. There's no crying in the Real World. The roommates return home and try to stay awake as long as possible. When Preston chooses to unwind in a relaxing bubble bath, Knight decides to throw everything not nailed down to the floor in the tub with him, including a life-size female statue.
