    I was glad Mike Mike stepped up to Dustin. I kept thinking .... You people have known each other all of 4 or 5 days...... what do you "owe" each other? Adam needs addiction therapy. He shows all the classic signs of an addict whether he is using or not.
    Yup, with donuts!!

    Adam's totally a loose cannon and of course doesn't think he does anything wrong.
    I was pretty blown away by Dustin's demeanor and the way he was behaving. He was acting like a baby.

    Three words: Go Mike Mike!

    I was so happy when he said: "Yeah, I kissed her! And I liked it!" Good for him! It was freakin' spin the bottle dude. A 5 second kiss that they were dared to do. Stupid.

    Yikes, Adam, what a loose cannon he is!!! He better get a grip on all that drinking before he is OFF the show. Throwing and smashing of bottles … who does crap like that … ?

    Dustin … ohhh, man, get.over.it, like Mike said. Sheesh, what a big baby. You have known Heather barely 4 days. Deal with it.

    Are these kiddos going to do any jobs while on the show … ? Was wondering if anyone had any spoilers.

    I do not envy Mike and Leroy (or the rest of them) having to put up with Dustin and Adam. Adam clearly, clearly has addiction problems that he doesn't recognize. I about choked when he said that he drank too much, but, really, it was the bar's fault he got so drunk, because they continued to serve him. Depending on the laws in Las Vegas, the bar could indeed be legally responsible for not cutting him off, but no one there was forcing him to drink until he got crazy and blacked out. Obviously his roommates are concerned too, and he's not listening to the either. If that many people are telling you you're out of line, perhaps you are. I also can't help but wonder if Adam wouldn't have been bounced out of that hotel and asked not to return, ever, if he weren't a member of the Real World cast. It took four bouncers to get him home. Under normal circumstances, even in Las Vegas, I can't see a hotel putting up with that.

    As for Dustin, good grief---the object of your affection isn't even that attracted to you, and it was Truth or Dare. It was a GAME. Other people can confirm that and that the kiss was not that big of a deal. The way Dustin was posturing and calling Mike "son" made me want to smack him myself. I commend Mike for restraining himself. If that's the worst Dustin's ever been disrespected in his entire life, then he should consider himself extremely fortunate.

    Actually, I feel sort of sorry for Mike in general, as his housemates seem amazed by his vocabulary. Is he the only one in that house who could get a decent score on a high school vocabulary test? Polarizing and carrion are not words that are that unusual. Yet some of his housemates are acting like he's speaking a foreign language. Aren't any of them in college at this point? Some of them should know at least a couple of multi-syllable words that aren't obscene by now.

    I'm pretty sure the casting folks don't have "overall intelligence" high on their priority list. Instead, it seems like they look for the same folks every season, and the majority of them aren't headed for a Pulitzer Prize anytime soon. And, yes, they probably want folks who fit the stereotypical molds that create drama (eg: drama queens, addicts, party-fiends, kids who only care about how the look with no career goals whatsoever) but I fear the casts are becoming more representative of the Real World than many of us want to believe...

    I don't think they need to be headed for a Pulitzer, but I'd like to see cast mates who could, gee, finish a crossword puzzle. Of course, I have several RW dreams that will never come true. A Real World cast where everyone, for a variety of reasons, chose not to drink. A Real World Cast where people actually had jobs or college careers they took reasonably seriously (remember Real World Boston, when they had to work for a non-profit with a real boss who wouldn't take crap from them?). And, of course, Real World: Fargo. In the winter. If they made it to early spring, they could help sandbag the Red River.

    One of my favorite Road Rules was Road Rules: Semester at Sea, when the cast was actually expected to learn something.

    I think we should start with baby steps--maybe finishing a complete sentence, perhaps?

    Unfortunately, it seems this dumbing down trend has taken the reality tv world by storm; its so sad when we get one contestant on Survivor who has a clue and we all champion him or her as a genius, or when a guy throws out some simple vocab words and his castmates are utterly perplexed. Soon the requirements audition page for a reality show will look something like this:

    1) So like, do you want to be a celebrity and like a model?
    2) Can you, uh, sit up without drooling (spitting/having saliva (spit) fall out of your mouth) on yourself?
    3) Do you love to drink and party?
    4) Attach photo.
    5) Will you hook up with anything that is a carbon-based lifeform (are you cool with kissing lots of people and will you have tons of sex with other people and whatever, ya know!!)

    I am soooo annoyed with the way they filmed/edited this show. It is almost ruining it for me. I can't stand to watch it. The filming/editing is way more suited to a scripted or "Hills" (scripted lol) type of show. It's very distracting to me. One thing I've always loved about the Real World is that is has always maintained a "realness" to it that other reality shows do not have. This new style takes away from that IMO.

    I have watched every episode of every season since day 1. So I'm sure I'll keep watching. But I hope they don't do this again next season!!


    Oh and the gay porn dude.... what a freak. I can't believe he got so mad about a girl he'd known a week. I was proud of the nerd for saying he kissed her and liked it. haha

    The party dude really annoys me!!!

    Actually, I don't think they care if the proposed cast members drool. They certainly seem to prefer those who are willing to throw up on camera. I have never understood reality television's seeming fascination with filming vomiting contestants.
