Previously on The Real World: Steven said he would only have sex with Brynn if she were walking around naked and asked him to come do her. Surprisingly, Brynn didn't stand up and shed her clothes immediately. Brynn said that Steven rejected her, and that she doesn't handle rejection well. Steven and Trishelle made out, and Brynn was jealous.
Steven and Trishelle "dance" at Rain. It's less like dancing and more like grinding against each other sexually. In an interview, Trishelle says that she and Steven have a connection, and that when they are together, it's like there is no one else in the world. Which, of course, completely excuses the fact that they're humping in public, like, all the time. Didn't the rest of the world move past that phase at age seventeen? In an interview, Steven says that Trishelle is "beautiful and smiling," which is code for "vacuous and blank-eyed." Steven also thinks that Trishelle has a positive aura, and adds that "her breasts are always on my mind." At least he was honest with that last part. In an interview, Frank lets us know that Brynn is jealous of Steven and Trishelle, and that she feels that by grinding with each other, they're throwing it in her face. Well, hers and everyone else's, but I think Brynn needs to be reminded that the world doesn't revolve around her. I don't think they're grinding to make Brynn jealous. I think they're grinding because they like to fuck each other. I doubt Brynn ever enters their minds except to think, "Hey, I hope Brynn doesn't mind if we have sex all night while she's asleep in the next bed. And I hope she doesn't try to join in again, because that was just annoying." On the dance floor, Trishelle pushes Steven's face into her breasts. This is juxtaposed with footage of Brynn leaning on a railing above the dance floor, so we're supposed to think that she's just standing there, staring at them, all stalker-like. In the last shot of Trishelle, she is so dead-eyed and drunk or high or something that it scares me. It's not a pretty look, for her or anyone.
Cut to the suite, where Trishelle and Steven make out in bed. Out in the living room, the other roommates plus some random guests who are never introduced or explained discuss the fact that Trishelle and Steven don't even talk to each other during the day and then they screw all night. Brynn crawls into bed with Steven and Trishelle and tells them that she's about to ruin their night, because she's a little jealous. Trishelle is all, "Whyy-yyyy?" Brynn says that she's upset that someone else is "getting action." Brynn is working the always hot look of a big plastic cup of beer and a cigarette behind the ear. Sex-ay. In an interview, Brynn says that she's a very jealous person, and that she gets jealous when people get things that she wants. I don't know if "jealous" is the best adjective for her, then. Try "self-absorbed," or "egocentric." I would even accept "selfish." But jealousy is the theme of this episode, so jealousy it shall be. Well, jealousy, and flatware. Steven claims that the room is "an action-free zone." Meanwhile, he's clearly doing something to Trishelle under the covers and I just threw up all over my keyboard so excuse me while I run out to Staples and get a new one. Okay, I'm back. In an interview, Brynn says that she is jealous of Steven and Trishelle because she wanted Steven to hook up with her first. So, she didn't want a relationship with Steven. She just wanted Trishelle to get sloppy seconds. Interesting.
