On the trolley (I wasn't kidding about the multiple forms of transportation), Shavonda asks MJ if he has a girlfriend. MJ says, "Not really," and everyone chuckles. MJ explains that he's been seeing Ashley for two months. Shavonda says that she has a boyfriend. MJ interviews that Shavonda immediately started talking about her boyfriend, which seemed like a signal to stay away from her. MJ ask if they'll have to listen to "mushy late-night telephone calls." Well, only if you eavesdrop. Which you totally should. Shavonda interviews that she's worried about a long-distance relationship, but only time will tell what happens. The trolley stops, and the three roommates get off and walk into their new home, a renovated bank. When they walk in, they enter a courtyard with a brick floor, and a tree! Anyway, they have the typical "holy shit" reaction, running around the house looking at everything. Landon interviews that it is "the ultimate bachelor pad," conveniently forgetting that he has roommates, and that some of them are female. Landon and MJ claim the double bedroom. MJ says that he wanted to room with Landon because they have a lot in common, and Landon wasn't "a threat." Like, competitively? Like he can beat Landon in ping pong? Oh, MJ explains that he expects one of his roommates to be "a homosexual," which is apparently a threat. Man, was I hoping that Landon was the secret gay at this point.
As soon as MJ utters the word "homosexual," the editors cut to Willie and Sarah arriving at the house. They all greet one another. Willie took time out to get a Frappucino before arriving at the house, which also earns him points in my book. Caffeine is very important. Sarah interviews that MJ has a great body. MJ interviews that as soon as he heard Willie's "high-pitched voice," he knew that Willie was gay. That MJ. He's like a scientist of homosexuality. He's like Gay-lileo. (That joke was probably a lot funnier in my head.) Willie spots the two hot tubs. Two! Willie also spots the fish tank. Have the fish ever survived an entire season? I don't think so. Willie and Sarah decide to room together. Aren't they supposed to wait for everyone to get there before grabbing rooms? The five roommates toast to Philadelphia and wait for the final two to arrive.
