The roommates go to Ghost Bar, which is the one on the roof. In an interview, Arissa says she didn't see any handsome guys until she spotted Alex. We get our first glimpse of Alex and let me just say...yuck. He's wearing a hat with one side of the brim flipped up, and then you can see this greasy product-filled hair sticking out the back. And then he's wearing a loose white see-through button-down shirt and jeans. Arissa thinks he's gorgeous. They dance together. Arissa takes his hat off and steals it. Alex smiles and, on top of it all, his teeth are all jacked up. In an interview, Irulan thinks it's healthy for Arissa to have fun away from Dario. In an interview, Arissa explains that she spent four hours talking to Alex. He said that he was scared because he likes her, but she lives in Massachusetts and he lives in California. First of all, in their first conversation ever, he's already worried about the future of their relationship? And second of all, let's not pretend like it's unheard of for a former Real Worlder to move to L.A. It's rarer if they don't at this point.
Arissa takes the elevator upstairs, still wearing Alex's shitty hat. Hey, I just realized that Alex is like the male version of Mojo from Joe Millionaire. Arissa tells Irulan all about her new man, who is a Scorpio. Irulan is sitting there wrapped in a sheet, like, did she just do it with Alton or what? And also, ew. Arissa runs down why Alex is so perfect, and Irulan says that she's smitten. Arissa checks out the hat and realizes that it's Gucci. That would be an even bigger turn-off to me, but I'm not Arissa. In an interview, Arissa says that she feels like she's sixteen again.
Brynn sits down by the pool. Suddenly, she's up in the suite talking to Trishelle, complaining that she feels out of it. In an interview, Brynn says that a panic attack is overwhelming, and she describes how her heart races and her mind races and she gets sweaty. The editor keeps flipping the picture to emphasize...something. It's just annoying is what it is. Brynn says she called her mom, because her mom has had panic attacks, too. Steven asks if it's hormonal. Brynn says it's a chemical imbalance, and that it's genetic. Brynn says that when she looked it up on the internet, she though she must be schizophrenic, which freaked her out even more. Hypochondriacs and other paranoid people should not have access to the internet. Not that I doubt Brynn's symptoms. I just think she's going to talk herself into further mental problems by reading about them. Trishelle says that Brynn should see someone about it. Brynn says that her mom will help her through it. She adds that her mom got addicted to Xanax and had to go to rehab.
