Shavonda and Karamo continue their discussion in the bathroom. ["As you do." -- Wing Chun] Shavonda says that people called her a coconut or an Oreo. Shavonda says that she's a person first. Karamo asks why Shavonda doesn't embrace their culture. Shavonda says that she was raised to look at people without seeing color. Karamo says he doesn't know how to get to that point, and that he was praying the other day that he would start to see the person instead of the color. He gets really, really serious about it, and while I get that he wants to change, I don't know if it's realistic for him to think he can eventually not notice skin color. What I think is more realistic is to note it, and set it aside, and try not to let preconceived notions about that person seep in before you get to know the individual. Anyway. Shavonda tells Karamo to let his guard down. Shavonda interviews that she's aware of slavery and her culture, but that she doesn't let it run her life. In a confessional, Karamo says he's trying to grow and become a better person, and that he feels like he's missed out on things in the past because of his views on race, but that it's hard for him to admit that he was wrong about it.

Melanie starts wrestling with him, for some reason, and making a scene. Melanie interviews that when Landon's drunk, you don't know if he'll hurt you or say something mean.

And while Landon is being a dick, she's not helping. Landon yells at her again to "step the fuck down," and Melanie steps towards him and sticks her mug right in his face.
