Real World Recap – Dunbar is a Douchebag of Mammoth Proportions. Friday, December 21, 2007Posted by The NY Kid in Fuck You Nibbles, MTV, reality TV, undergroundBTO.
This episode opens with all of the roommates sitting in the kitchen, with Dunbar bitching about how Parissa has broken the coffee machine because she drinks too much coffee (yes, God forbid someone use the machine for its intended purpose). Ashli responds with the underwhelming comment that Dunbar is “being stupid” (gee, you think?). Follow me after the jump to see just how far his stupidity extends.
The next morning, as Parissa goes to get some coffee (Alanis Morrisette says that this is “ironic”), Dunbar asks Ashli why she was upset with him the previous night (i.e. calling him stupid). After informing us all that she isn’t afraid of Dunbar, she tells him that he is “always bitching about something.” Surprisingly, Dunbar takes this very well – he responds by saying “Well, you’re being a bitch.” Ashli continues the grade-school conversation with the old “I’m not talking to you anymore” routine. She then goes into her room to talk to Parissa and KellyAnne about the situation. Meanwhile, Dunbar is on the computer and gets very upset when he can’t find a pen (‘roid rage much?). He marches into the girls’ room and wants to know “where all the fucking pens went”. After finding one, he calls Julie to explain just how difficult his life is. He also mentions that he doesn’t respect any of his female roommates (really? we couldn’t tell).
That evening, all of the guys go out, and Dunbar attempts to explain his position. “Does bitch offend you? Does whore offend you?” Thankfully, Cohutta has a brain, and he tells Dunbar that if he heard him use those words to describe his mother or sister, they would have a problem. Dunbar closes the conversation by re-iterating the fact that he does not respect the girls in the house.
The next morning, everyone goes in to work where their boss Sarah asks them if they are ready. When they seem non-committal, she reminds them that they need to have their itinerary done in the next 2 days. The roommates go back to the house to get some work done. While Parissa, Ashli and Isaac go outside to work, Dunbar and KellyAnne sit around arguing while Cohutta takes a nap. KellyAnne goes to wake up Cohutta, but instead she winds up crawling into bed with him. Dunbar takes the opportunity to go bitch to Isaac about the situation. After Dunbar has gone, Isaac notes that “Isaac and Europe are fond of each other. I’ll send Dunbar a postcard.”
Several hours later, Dunbar, KellyAnne and Cohutta are finally working, but KellyAnne feels like the boys ignore all of her ideas. This somehow pisses Dunbar off, so he goes off to work by himself. After a little while, he convinces Isaac and Cohutta to go for a drive to explore Sydney. At one particular spot, Cohutta manages to jump down a 10-12 foot cliff, and he badly twists his ankle. The girls are all at home eating dinner when Cohutta hops in and tells them what happened. Cohutta seems particularly upset that he might not be able to go on his tour for work, since he is having quite a bit of difficulty walking.
Completely out of the blue, Dunbar and Ashli have yet another blow-up when Dunbar says that Ashli bumped into him on purpose as she walked past him in the hallway. Ashli unleashes a verbal assault on Dunbar, who responds by saying “you are the biggest bitch I have ever met”. Ashli responds in kind, telling Dunbar that he is the biggest asshole that she has ever met. Dunbar, completely oblivious, says “How have I been an asshole to you?” (well, how much time do you have?) Ashli tells Dunbar “You know what I’m thinking”, basically threatening to tell his girlfriend Julie that they had sex. She walks away and goes outside to talk to the girls while Dunbar sits inside and looks increasingly psychotic.
A little later Noirin (Isaac’s girlfriend) comes over and mentions that some people perceive her as a bully. Dunbar immediately jumps on the bandwagon and says that he has the same problem. He then says “I’m one of the most considerate, thoughtful, compassionate human beings I’ve ever come across” (at this point I had to pause the show, as I was feeling a little woozy from processing this statement), and “I will be vindictive, but it doesn’t mean that I’m a mean person” (no, of course not). We are then treated to a montage of Ashli and Dunbar over scenes of Ashli talking to Parissa and Dunbar working out (see? ‘roid rage!).
