Back to Steven and Trishelle. Steven is excited to meet the other roommates and find out where they are going to live. Trishelle is nervous. Insert enough shots of the Palms Casino that I feel like I've suddenly started watching an infomercial. Finally, Trishelle and Steven's limo pulls up out front. A bellhop welcomes them and takes their bags as they enter the casino. In an interview, Trishelle says that, gosh, she's never seen anything like this before. More infomercial casino shots. The bellhop asks them if they're staying for a while, and they say they don't know. He gives them room keys and they get in the elevator and head to the twenty-eighth floor. They arrive and do the typical oohing and aahing over the place. The décor is a lot nicer this year than previous years. In an interview, Trishelle says that her house in Cutoff is a country house and, dang, this is a city house. Except it's not a house. It's a hotel. But whatever. Steven and Trishelle happen upon a giant bowl of condoms. Steven starts reading the directions and Trishelle stashes one in her purse. Wouldn't it be ironic if one or both of them had sex without a condom and got pregnant? It's like foreshadowing.
Irulan arrives at the Palms. The bellhop asks if she's much of a gambler, and she says that she's not so far. In an interview, Irulan says that the hotel is beautiful, and more than she hoped for. Irulan enters the suite and meets Trishelle. They exchange names and there's a funny beat where they're both clearly like, "What the fuck was your momma thinking?" And they're both right. In an interview, Trishelle says that she's excited to live with people of other races because, gosh, they don't have black folks in Cutoff. Steven says that he's already feeling uncomfortable because he's with two beautiful women, like, keep it in your pants there, Steve Sanders.
Arissa and Frank arrive at the hotel. Arissa says that she needs her family to wire her $800. In an interview, Arissa says that she has $14 in her pocket and no clue when she's getting money again. Frank and Arissa get into the elevator and it doesn't move. They can't figure out how to work the elevator, but at least they have the grace to be embarrassed by that fact. Frank punches floors six and seven for some unknown reason. I don't know why he didn't just hit the button for the twenty-eighth floor. Arissa refuses to take the stairs, and they finally get the elevator figured out. Frank says that you have to be like John Nash to figure out the elevator. Or hit the button for the correct floor. They finally get to the suite and meet Steven, Trishelle, and Irulan. Steven says that he's already nervous because there are three pretty girls. God! How annoying is he? He seems a little too anxious to proclaim how much he likes chicks. We get it, Steven! You dig vaginas. Awesome. Can we move on? Frank admits that he just broke up with a girlfriend, and Trishelle says that they are all single people. Well, Steven is technically still married. Steven thinks they should wait until the final two roommates arrive to choose bedrooms. Everyone agrees.
Alton pulls up in a white stretch limo. I kind of like Alton already because he shakes the hand of his limo driver and his bellhop, and then helps his bellhop with the luggage. In an interview, Alton says that he's overwhelmed by the size of the casino. Alton enters the suite and everyone cheers. Frank creepily shakes Alton's hand. Alton checks the place out. In an interview, Frank says that he's wondering about the seventh roommate. Because every season, B/M has to try to isolate one person, they have Brynn arrive last, and alone. You know they totally orchestrate the order of the arrivals, and who travels in pairs and such. So they know that insecure Brynn is likely to feel left out when all of the others have already met and bonded, and thus arrange it for her to arrive last. Genius. Brynn, unlike Alton, barely speaks to her limo driver. The bellhop asks Brynn if she's much of a gambler, like obviously that's the standard bellhop question to new arrivals. Brynn says that she's more of a party animal. ["That's the first time anyone has used the expression 'party animal' since 1986." -- Wing Chun] In an interview, Brynn says that she's a bit of a troublemaker. She's already imagining that one of the female roommates will be really hot, and that Brynn and the hypothetical hot female roommate will compete for one of the hot male roommates. Brynn admits that she's fought with roommates before over guys. Yep. My initial impression is confirmed. I hate her. I hate her stupid tongue piercing and her million little pigtails and her low self-esteem and need for attention.
