Shavonda says that the other day she was excited to hear someone come in the front door, but then she saw it was Melanie, and got depressed. Shavonda interviews, "Melanie's personality is what is abrasive and bugging people." Man. How do you insult someone else's personality unless you're sure that yours is perfect? And if you think your personality is perfect, then you are annoying, which means your personality is not perfect. So it's a bit of a Catch-22.
Melanie and her friends leave the house and they joke that they are going to go out and rob some people. I don't know what the point of that scene was, but seriously, that's all that happened in it.
The roommates report back to work. I kind of thought they were done with the job after their proposal and vacation and everything. Laura asks if they are excited to be back, and gets blank stares in response. Willie interviews that they are "slapped in the face with reality" when they go back to work. Laura says that they will be very busy in the next few weeks finishing up their playground, and that while the staff is available to help, she would like to see if the roommates can get it done themselves. Landon interviews that he's excited to control a major project from start to finish, from research to ribbon cutting. Laura tells them to work out a schedule that includes a rain contingency plan. Karamo interviews that he can think of a lot of other things to do for the kids than build a playground, and that he wants to be a mentor to the kids. That's fine, but do it on your own time, because it's not what you were hired to do. It's not like, in the real world, you get to start a job in accounting, and then discover that you really enjoy sales, and just say, "Okay, I'm just going to do sales now. That's cool, right?" Laura asks if they have any questions, and everyone is silent.
Karamo sits on a bench outside with Ed, and discusses how hard the workload will be over the next few weeks. Karamo says that they'll have "a fifty-eight-hour week," which can't possibly be true. Karamo adds that it's not like they'll just be hanging out in the office; they'll be doing physical labor, constructing the playground. Ed asks if others will be helping them, and Karamo says it's just the roommates. Karamo interviews that the playground comes in many, many parts, and that they have to assemble it themselves.
