Nine episodes in, and we have a new roommate.
Dylan came to The Real World looking for a party, and now that we have a new roommate, it begs the question: was it needed?
Aside from the exes on Ex-Plosion, we’ve never had a roommate just move in. They’ve always just been replacements. Perhaps Dylan was supposed to be a “mission,” or the cast was supposed to bully him until he quit the campion mission. If that was the case, the cast failed miserably because they’re now sharing their home with another person.
Was this cast really getting that stale? Granted, 80% of the episodes have been centered around Jenna, but there seems to be a lot going on this season. Especially when you consider the fact that they twist can force interested plot lines (like Sabrina looking for her biological mother).
If the goal was to center episodes around new people, that doesn’t seem like it’s going to work because Jenna and Dylan seem to really get along. While Dylan certainly seems like the party type, and may bring some hook-up drama, he doesn’t seem like he’s going to be super confrontational. He also doesn’t (to our knowledge) have a super interesting background story that could bring a new plot line like Sabrina, Chris and Dean did. Yes, he was a stripper, but they milked that for everything it’s worth in his first episode.
What do you think of Dylan? Did this cast need an eighth roommate?
