Cohen asks Ronnie about his feelings about Ben, now. Ronnie says yes, he did kind of have a crush on Ben early on, but those feelings dissipated. "I got over it," he laughs. "I'd see someone new walking down the street and be like, 'who's Ben?'" Ah, now here is a gay man I understand. Casey says yeah, Ronnie fell in love with a new dude every five minutes. "That's good," Cohen agrees. "Ronnie's a good gay." A viewer has written in asking Ben if he would kiss Ronnie if the assignment called for it. Ben says if it were a requirement, yes, he would. "I mean, maybe not like, tonguin'," he adds, "but I'd kiss him." His former roommates turn on him. "Then do it!" several of them yell. "This is not an assignment," he insists, but proves his willingness to get the job done by saying: "if I could make out with Holly, I could make out with anybody." Dude. I am sure he's just kidding around, but the show does him no favors -- he looks like he's making a mean joke, rather than a cute joke, and it does nothing to dispel my hate vibes.
Cohen giddily presents them with "Bronnie" t-shirts, saying they're even on sale now on the Bravo website. Ugh. Just blow them already, Bravo. Jeez. All that and nothing about Ben's snow trip meltdown and all his hate speech? That shit was so unacceptable and no one is going to say anything? And no one wants to point out that what offended Ronnie most about all of that was Ben calling him a girl? I am the last person to be oversensitive about things like that, but honestly, it was SO awful, and Ben didn't even half-apologize for it or seem to recognize the stupidity of what he said. And are we supposed to give him a medal for "being friends with a gay guy?" I am so over anything even having to do with either one of these boys.
A montage of their more interesting assignments is shown, and I am just about to get bored when we see Jay's little moment hiding his light under a bushel, again. That was really my favorite thing that happened on the show. Poor Jay. He seems like a really nice guy. Too bad they wasted his time flying him up and down the country and then... didn't let him say a word in this entire hour.
