Catching up on MTV’s The Real World:St Thomas has been quite entertaining! I never expected the roomies to be so funny and wild, I’ve never laughed so hard watching any Real World- and that’s mostly because of LaToya. Since the roommates are literally stuck on an island, rather than taking the boat to the mainland everyday, they find new and exciting things to do to keep themselves entertained. Fortunately, for MTV and Bunim-Murray this makes for great tv!
Laura is the most annoying roommate I think- ever. She’s like a little puppy dog following Trey around all day and night, she wants him so bad even though he’s made it clear he has a girl back home. Finally, Trey gives in and they hook up after 2 weeks of meeting each other.
Marie and Robb are definitely my favourite couple in the house, separately they are hilarious, Robb is a ginger which explains enough, and Marie is always up to something. Together, they make an amazing pair, especially when they are up to no good and in prank mode.
LaToya is just as funny as Marie, the way she talks and the things she says are just hilarious. Also, she seems really down to earth and very confident with who she is. She ain’t takin’ no s*** from anybody! Unlike Laura who just follows Trey around and finds her fun in flirting, Toya and Marie know how to make themselves laugh without the boys. But when Toya meets Lee’s son ‘Little Lee’ she is completely head over heels, and find every excuse to use that boat! It’s the funniest thing ever.
When Marie and Toya find a huge fish lying on the shore, Marie decides this is the ultimate prank, meanwhile Toya googles possible dead fish diseases before agreeing to help Marie with the prank. Marie on her own takes the fish and drops it in the boys’ shower. It doesn’t take long for Swift and Robb to realize something is stinkin’ up in their room! Swift sees the dead fish in the shower and immediately knows it’s one of the girls. Marie doesn’t admit to it and automatically blames it on Laura who loves animals and touches anything gross. Swift believes her and begins his plot against the girls. Unfortunately for him, Marie gets the fish and throws it back into the sea before the guys can use it. The funniest part, when Laura admits she had nothing to do with the prank, Marie blames it on Brandon saying he was so drunk he doesn’t even remember doing it. Brandon gets so excited that he would think of such an amazing prank and admits he blacked out the night before and doesn’t remember doing it-but that it’s something he would totally do!
Swift jumps into the water near the dock and accidentally steps on some sea urchins! When he gets out he can barely walk, he notices a bunch of little blank things in his foot. They head over to the doctor’s office, barely walking Swift finds out there’s no cure but that they’ll slowly fall out as he walks. Him and Toya fight over the stupidest thing.
On this week’s episode, the roommates find out what their new job will be. Working at Coral World is like a dream job, they’ll be working at an aquarium and Marie,Swift and Laura get to work with sea lions. While doing their swim test, Toya barely makes it to the finish line when she starts drowning and steps on a sea urchin!! She sees the same little black things under her foot, and Swift is having the best day of his life laughing at her. Her foot isn’t as bad as Swift’s but those sea urchins sure are an annoyance! Brandon can’t stop drinking, when he drinks he gets really emotional and weird, he starts hitting himself and breaking things around the house. Worst part, he doesn’t remember any of it the next morning.
In the end, Marie and Robb know how to cheer everyone up and possibly piss of Grandpa Trey. They smear peanut butter all over the counters and have fun drawing themselves in it, when Trey sees what they’ve done he just laughs it off. Seems like the roomies are having a great time on the island- and they’re turning out to be a good group of kids!
