The Real World Las Vegas
Still, this guy has some serious anger issues. Not only did he lose his mind going after Ty, but he plowed through Mandi to get to him with no regard for her body. Even afterward, he showed no signs of concern that he might have injured her.
This guy needs a reality check rather than another reality television program before he seriously hurts himself or someone else. Of course, what did MTV expect with this format. The whole conceit is to pair up people who hate each other. That said, Adam didn't target his own partner Leroy.
One such scene was of the girls serving Mike breakfast whilst topless. As Naomi tells it, this came about because she and Cooke were "trying to scare Mike off ... and we were like, 'let's make breakfast for Mike naked.'"
So the girls tried to act like there was nothing out of the ordinary going on and Mike tried to eat his breakfast sitting next to a topless girl. Although he tried to remain blasé -- this is Vegas, after all -- we couldn't help noticing that his face turned as red as his t-shirt.
When asked point blank about photos depicting him having sex with men, he suggested they might be Photoshopped. But when several cast members admitted to having seen the photos, Dustin backed down a little bit, admitting that he'd held other men's parts, so to speak.
"I think that you're a chronic liar," Michael said. "I think that you can't tell the truth." He further went on to say that he hopes to never see Dustin again.
So, was it real? The poor guy officiating hung in there, even though the vows took things in some very unexpected directions.
"I promise that I will work hard to make sure that I can somehow afford the lavish lifestyle you want to live," Mike said to Naomi.
"I appreciate how you were able to see beyond me having sex with your roommate all the time and [that] I might be doing it again tonight," she responded in her own vow.
Unfortunately, he started by revealing that her father had passed away in his sleep in 2002. Nany was understandably devastated by this turn of events, but the investigator had some good news to try to balance things a bit.
"He had a son in Cuba before they moved here," she was told. "Also, there's an 18-year old daughter he has. I met with her and she's interesting in having a relationship with you."
That's why he was bringing up things from weeks ago as if they'd happened yesterday. Dustin was so serious about wanting to fight Mike that he even took off his t-shirt. That's guy talk for "get ready to experience a serious beat-down." Only Mike wouldn't rise to the challenge.
Quite literally, Mike simply refused to get out of the chair he was sitting in, even after Dustin knocked it back onto the ground. But his pacifist body language was in stark contrast to his mouth, which kept goading Dustin on, clearly enjoying the slow buildup of rage he'd created.
"This girl is incredible," he said about her, unable to control his smile. "It sounds so sappy but even just when she comes around and beams that awesome smile, I'm happy." That's totally not hooking up with her and then throwing her out the next day. That sounds like a genuine emotional connection.
The lucky lady is latched onto a real sharp cookie, too. As they were playing a game of pool, Mike decided to try and look all macho and cool. "What you don't get is that I'm gonna beat you in like five turns here, right?" he said. How about that, blondie?
So, apparently, Heather decided to deal with it by turning 'The Real World' house into her own gay webcam series. Only she had high production cameras and all the guys in the house trying to control themselves as they watched her and Nany making out hard and heavy.
Alcohol was involved, but is that enough to explain the lengthy petting session that moved around the house and spent a long time under the covers?
The "it" is Dustin's first time living in a house with cameras running all the time. Only that time it was a bunch of guys and a bunch of webcams, and no censors meaning no limits.
Now Dustin has been verbally trying to affirm his heterosexuality since the season began and judging everyone. The young man doth protest too much, methinks?
That didn't sit too well with Naomi and Nany, who decided to defend Heather's honor. Not that she asked them to.
Cookie came into the house flirting pretty hard and heavy with Dustin, who was already in a relationship of sorts with Heather. Add drunkenness to the mix, and this assault on their friend simply wouldn't stand.
The security manager appeared and ordered him to pack up his stuff and leave. Though Adam's been a terrible boyfriend (if we can even call him that) toward Nany, his leaving upset her the most.
They hugged, and she started to cry. Adam said, "I'm sorry. I feel bad. I'm sorry I have to leave you."
Adding alcohol to the mix just makes it worse. Adam is a violent drunk, too, which is another warning flag that a relationship may not be a great idea.
At least he was limited to punching walls this week, but the way he went after them was still very dangerous and a little frightening. Especially if you're between him and the wall, as Nany was at one point.
... And then, of course, there's the first fight on the latest installment of 'The Real World' (Wed., 10PM ET on MTV). Stick a group of bored/drunken twenty-somethings together in a house, and a fight is bound to happen. The only question is, who will the fight involve? Will it be guy-on-guy, girl-on-girl, or the far rarer cross-gender fight?
'The Real World' has chosen to mark its 25th season in the sinningest of cities -- Las Vegas.
Nearly a decade after the first go-round in Sin City, though, the latest 'Real World' installment doesn't really seem all that scandalous.
Sure, the cast is young, tan, beautiful, reality-TV savvy and, most of all, drunk. But in a post-'Jersey Shore' world, is that enough anymore?
"Oh my God," groans a 20-something guy at the end of the first trailer for MTV's newest season of 'The Real World,' which returns to Las Vegas after an eight-year absence. That's essentially how we feel after watching the two-minute clip.
Considering that the first Vegas season marked the show's turn from "interesting glimpse at diverse roommates interacting with each other" to "hot, angry, young people drinking, having sex and fighting," we're a little torn at the prospect of watching yet another batch of PYTs get into trouble.
Included in PEOPLE's first look trailer are drinking, making out, gambling, punching, scromiting (screaming + vomiting) -- really everything you've come to expect from an MTV reality show. That doesn't mean we won't tune in when season 25 (!!!!!) premieres in March.
