I am starting to like Jay less and less the more this season goes on. First, he almost cheats on his girlfriend. Then there was that whole Sharon-worship thing a couple of episodes ago. Now he's actually walking around London's West End indignant about the fact that none of these venerable theaters will stage his play. Apparently he can't understand why no one in London would want to finance him despite the fact that he really really wants to be a playwright. As justification for his confusion, Jay cites his ability to harass old people. "The first time I was in Leicester Square and I got in line and started talking to people...people interested in theater," says Jay in voice-over. We see him in line for theater tickets, starting a conversation with an elderly couple who clearly don't give a shit. "I'd tell them I was a playwright from the United States and people get interested in what I've done and what I'm doing." Another couple gets to hear all about Jay's one-man show. "So I put it on," he lectures to the middle-aged couple who would normally have fled if it weren't for the MTV cameras aimed right at them. "And it made money." The middle-aged woman politely asks him what it was called. "It's called Bedrooms," says Jay. "Oooh, cheeky!" says the middle-aged woman.
Back at Attention Deficit Manor, the housemates find a letter addressed to someone named "Jay Straight." It turns out that Jay's father calls him that because that's his "birth name." The housemates ask Jay to explain. "I was born Jay Straight," says Jay. No comment. Jay continues, "And I was raised by my stepdad, and my stepdad adopted me, and I took on his last name." Mike asks Jay how his dad feels about that, and Jay says that it's cool now, but that they had to go to court, where his dad was his own attorney and had to cross-examine Jay and everything. "It was really strange," says Jay. "I was pulled out of camp to go to court against my dad." He goes on to explain that his stepfather raised him from the very beginning, so "out of respect," there was no way he could say no to being adopted by him. "It caused problems for me and my dad for a while, but now we got past it," Jay tells the other housemates.
