Then they go to Victoria Falls, which is still boring. I mean, it's beautiful and all, but it's boring in terms of storyline development. Melissa enjoys nature. Jamie enjoys Melissa enjoying nature. That's about all you need to know.
Melissa and Julie are on a boat. Melissa says she smells like bug spray, and she's drinking flat soda, and she's still happy. Melissa even asks Julie to meditate with her, and Julie gets all fired up. Melissa says she knows something must be going on if she wants to meditate, but it's kind of neat. Hey, do you think Melissa discovered that nature and Africa aren't all that bad? Could this be more of an After-School Fucking Special?
They are all at dinner. In an interview, Melissa wonders why David can talk to strangers, and have intelligent and charming conversations, but can't share that with the people in the house. I wonder why she cares so much. Melissa, Jamie and Julie engage in the time-honored Real World tradition of talking about one of the roommates behind his back. Melissa tells Jamie and Julie that she feels alone and that as the two black people, they should be sharing this experience together. Jamie says that David has in him the ability to open up (because he cried), but he has this gangsta persona and it's a façade, and a shield. That was actually surprisingly perceptive for Jamie. We must be in Bizarro South Africa, because then Julie does the mature thing and suggests that they talk with David about this instead of talking behind his back. In an interview, Jamie says that he's interested in confronting David because it'll be a loss if David leaves the experience and continues to be the way he is.
Next week, David says he has a hard time trusting people, and that there is a distance between the other roommates and himself. Melissa says David is a poor example of what black men in America should be. Jamie bungee-jumps, possibly with his own cord.
Over the credits, Melissa changes her mind about the whole meditation thing.
