Real World Recap – Shauvon Beats It! Friday, November 2, 2007Posted by The NY Kid in Fuck You Nibbles, MTV, reality TV, undergroundBTO.
This episode opens with KellyAnne on the phone with her ex-boyfriend, Sutton (what is it with people on this show and their exes?). At the same time, Isaac and Dunbar are telling Cohutta that his “relationship” with KellyAnne is a lost cause, and he needs to cut her loose. A little later, we see all the roommates at work, where their boss Chris tells them that are going on an adventure vacation to Cairns, Australia (home of the Great Barrier Reef) while also getting an opportunity to see the organizational side of Contiki tours. Join me after the jump to find out how Shauvon fucks this up.
The first thought in Shauvon’s mind when presented with the vacation is that her ex-fiance, David, is not going to be happy. When she gets home and gives him a call, he predictably explodes (seriously, this guy has anger management issues). Later that night, while everyone is packing for their adventure vacation, Shauvon calls a house meeting to tell them that she is going home to David. Isaac gets off another great crack when he mentions that their new roommate will have “a big bra to fill” (instead of big shoes! Get it? Get it?). Shauvon calls David to tell him the good news.
The next morning, everyone says goodbye to Shauvon and then leaves for Cairns (but not before getting in one last prayer with Trisha). We next see the roommates on the bus in Cairns with their tour guide, driving them to their hotel. Once at the hotel they encounter some stereotypical Australian fanfare – Aborigines with digiridoos and some wallabies. After settling in at the hotel, they take a boat ride out to the Great Barrier Reef to do some snorkeling. On the ride out there, Cohutta and KellyAnne talk about their relationship and her ex-boyfriend, and Cohutta tells her that he knows that “nice guys finish last” (cliche alert!). They snorkel (meh. SCUBA is where it’s at!), and on the ride back Cohutta starts talking to some random girl on the boat and invites her out to party with them later.
Later that night, as everyone is getting ready to go out, Cohutta is passed out on his bed, exhausted. Everyone decides to just go out without him (nice!). At the bar, KellyAnne proclaims that she is “just going to make out with someone” and begins dancing with the bartender (umm, shouldn’t he be, you know, tending bar?). Approximately 2.2 seconds after they kiss, Parissa walks up, moves in front of KellyAnne, and begins dancing with the bartender (COCKBLOCK ALERT!).
The next morning, Trisha and KellyAnne are talking about Parissa (which is their favorite thing to do), and Trisha calls Parissa “an undercover slut” (but, really, she’s not that undercover). KellyAnne responds with “if I did that, Parissa would shit a brick” (we really need to bring back that saying).
Later in the day, all of the roommates go bungee-jumping. Cohutta is very nervous, but actually decides to go first and he winds up enjoying it. Isaac is the last one to go, since he is afraid of heights, and on the way down he yells out that he is never doing that again.
That night, while everyone is out at the bar, Parissa is flirting with some random British guy, while KellyAnne and Trisha make fun of her. KellyAnne starts yelling at Parissa for being a bad person, and then storms outside. Cohutta goes out to talk to her, and says “you’re better than that – you’re a lady” (well, not exactly).
The next morning, the roommates leave Cairns and go back to Sydney. That night, KellyAnne and Cohutta talk about their relationship again, and Cohutta announces that he “won’t play second fiddle to no one”, but the episode ends with them cuddling on the bench.
