Last year, during The Challenge off season, I wrote about a few seasons that changes the trajectory for the Real World/Road Rules/ Challenge franchise (Inferno 3, Real World: Las Vegas, Rivals 2, Road Rules Maximum Velocity Tour, Real World: Brooklyn, and The Gauntlet). We’re back in the off season, so I wanted to pick up this series of posts. This time, I want to look … Continue reading Game Changers: Real World St. Thomas
It seems like production has no love for the St. Thomas season. For two consecutive seasons, the cast has gotten snubbed in terms of casting. Despite the fact that much of the cast would fit perfectly into themes, production seems reluctant to include them. As far as Real World seasons go, St. Thomas performed pretty poorly, but there are valid reasons why this seasons would … Continue reading Is The Real World St. Thomas a Forgotten Season?
Out of the Real World House and into the slammer. It looks like we have another cast member behind bars! Though the reason for the arrest is unclear, TMZ captured video of the event as it took place. Swift had no intention of cooperating as he ran away from Temple University cops yelling “I’m about to get beat up by a cop!” In the end, … Continue reading Swift Arrested!
The reunion aired right after the final episode, and if you really want to know what happened it’s best to watch it. I would like to highlight some of the main points made on the reunion here… Robb & Marie- Marie now hates Robb. A couple of weeks prior to the reunion, he broke up with her via text message. Robb admits that he was … Continue reading Reunion: The Bad Goodbye
Episode 12 marked the end of another Real World season. The final episode tied up some of the loose end that we’ve seen this season. Are Robb and Marie official? Well, Robb went to buy her a St. Coy bracelet. The way you wear this bracelet indicates whether your heart is open or your heart is taken. Marie loves the gift, and wears it so … Continue reading Episode 12: The War is Over
Chelsea’s coming!! She says that she “needs” Trey, because something is wrong. MTV has lead us to believe this is due to a pregnancy, miscarriage, or abortion. Who knows? Either way, she comes to visit because Trey pays for her to come. Before she visits, Trey has to make a choice. So he talks to Laura and says that their relationship can’t continue. Laura is … Continue reading Episode 11: So Long and Bad Night
So, here’s an ultimate creeper post. I found all of this info on Twitter. The reunion show was filmed on Aug. 31st in NYC, and it looks like Maria Menounos was the host. There she is with Robb! All seven members of the cast were there, here’s most of them. Notice Marie’s face. The lack of Trey can be explained by the fact that he … Continue reading St. Thomas Reunion- Filmed and Full of Drama
Laura enjoys the simple things in life. She likes camping, which makes Marie and Toya sick, and she likes painting Trey’s face. Speaking of Trey, she still likes spending time with him. Even though Trey has a girlfriend at home, Laura can’t help but flirty with him and shamelessly promote Subway with him. Their relationship hits an all-time high when they run in the mud … Continue reading Episode 10: Camping is Miserable
Like many episodes, this episode had many sub-plots. The first being a continuation of Robb’s self-beat down from last week. Swift and Brandon are concerned, and want to talk with Robb. They organize a house meeting with Robb (well, on the bros are invited because they girls were too busy applying make up). Rather than waiting to find the perfect time to confront Robb, the … Continue reading Episode 9: Trapped in the Closet
Robb knows what Marie wants… and it isn’t him. The episode starts off with the cast taking a historical tour of the island, but Marie can’t pay attention to the tour. The tour guide Phillipo is wearing a Rolex. He’s RICH. While history is nice, finding a sugar daddy is more important. While Phillipo does catch Marie’s attention for a moment, tensions between her and … Continue reading Episode 8 Review: What Women Want
As we continue with a season that is on the rocks, episode 7 focuses on some relationships that are on the rocks. “When she’s not with Trey, Laura’s an entirely different person.” Laura and Trey have taken some time off. Well, their definition of time off is spending two nights in separate bed. Trey admits that he has a girl at home, so he decided … Continue reading Episode 7: What’s There to Do On a Sunday Night?
Six weeks. The episode begins with Brandon celebrating six months of being drug free. Now he wants to move on to being alcohol free. His main problem is that his first sober weekend will be St. Patrick’s Day. While the house is supportive of this notion, Marie confesses that she plans on being belligerently drunk on St. Patty’s day. Sobriety is great, but so is … Continue reading Episode Six: Drinking Like a Pig
