Backstage, the RW team hugs and congratulates one another. In his first display of sportsmanship this season, James tries to comfort Christian. In an interview, James (for crying out loud) says that a lot of people on his team are there to have fun, but he wants to win. Didn't he just criticize the RW team for not being there to have fun? He makes no sense. I hate him.
The teams are called back out to the stage. Does anyone on either team think that RR has a chance? Between their sad group story and Laterrian's and Ayanna's silence-inducing skit, they just sucked. Tina Fey announces her pick first -- but not before we go to commercial.
Tina announces that "everyone did great," but she's picking The Real World. She's so cute. I love her. I want her and Jimmy Fallon to get married and have funny babies. Tell me I'm not alone. James looks stunned. Anyway, the next guy also picks The Real World. In an interview, James the interview monopolizer says that he knew they needed to get the next three to win the contest. He really thought at this point that they might win? Did he watch a different contest than I did? Did he see Ayanna and Laterrian? The next judge says that he doesn't want to "follow in the pack," and James crouches down on the stage like a little baby as the Real World team wins. They let the other judges announce their picks, like it matters. They all picked The Real World. The last judge says something about "Norwegian weed," I think.
So, how do you think James felt about that? You probably can't guess. Thank God, they have an interview clip to let us know that James was really upset, and pissed, and disappointed, and that the loss "killed [their] team spirit." The RW team accepts their check, and Julie and Jamie do the tongue-flick thing. That has got to stop. In an interview, Dan says that "it's fun to win."
The MVP is Syrrhosis, I guess for his dance move. He spins the wheel, and lands on a space that says that he gets to pick the stuff that someone else already won. In an interview, Syrrhosis says that he couldn't take Kameelah's stuff because she's his girl, so he takes Julie's Jeep stuff. Like Julie cares.
Rebecca and Kameelah are sitting in the lobby celebrating. Rebecca says that they made "$40,000 in a week," and then starts reliving the judges flipping up their cards that said Real World. Kameelah shushes her, because Emily and Ayanna are standing nearby. Awkward pause. Awkward pause. Ayanna tries to say something funny, and it's still not. Not intellectually. Not unintentionally.
