Dustin: Jerk Or Despirate?
I believe he is despirate to lose the Screech persona. Actually, Jalil White had moved on from Urkel to star in a sitcom that shows a more refined adult and had even done so on the show (Stefan Urkelle). Screech, on the other hand, made the terrible mistake of continuing to play Screech up into his adult years. He played Screech the teacher for a while on a spin-off version of SBTB. Because of that, he has been typecast. That's why he cannot break into comedy on a higher level or star in a movie that does not involve some aspect of the Screech character.
I believe he came on here specifically to be the bad boy to quell the image once and for all, citing his sex tape and thrashing the other contestants. His problem is that he cannot take what he tries to give and thus comes off looking like "Screech the Jerk" instead of Dustin the adult.
He hsi jealous and bitter about the other fitclubbers because they are not really locked into a character that has become a career buster
His bitterness and anger is showing more here because even with has beens, he still doesn't shine. They all still see him as Screech.
That's why he attacks Kimberly Locke. Although she was booted off AI, she is coming up with an album and it looks to be a chart topper - thus he attacts the AI loss. This came only when he overheard her say she didn't care about his tape.
It's also why he attacked Cleatus. Cleatus is an established comedian - Something else Dustin is trying and not excelling at
Da Brat is attacking him so he backs off from her and goes to the confessional to sound off. The most he could say about her is that she is a "gangsta"
What it looks like is that he doesn't handle rejection very well at all. He is screaming for attention and acceptance as an ADULT. I believe he needs to see Dr Phil and step away form fit club.:nod
Re: Dustin: Jerk Or Despirate?
That is a great assessment of Dustin. To me, this man has issues that can't be adequately addressed in a season of CFC. Dr. Phil? Uh, no... How about a real psychotherapist?
