MTV is airing a marathon of The Real World: Los Angeles from 1992

Never saw this before. It feels like looking inside a time capsule.

So much flannel. Some dude is giving a confessional in a suit jacket and tie with demin overalls for the pants.

Oh and Young Eric Nies is pretty dreamy.

New York

by Anonymousreply 103/22/2013

This is NY, Op, not LA. But thanks for the heads up. Man, I forgot all about these housemates, but it all comes back. Julie loves dressing like a slut and then blaming it on the card she drew or whatever. She had a nice body but a butterface. I love the rapper chick. Kevin is a dick. Norman tries to be weird too much. I wish it were LA, I love when Tami gets her abortion. Klassy Classic MTV.

Poor Eric Nies. He experienced numb hands, and after numerous tests, his doctor diagnosed that his biceps and triceps were pressuring his arteries and told him to stop working out too much.

God Julie dressed like a dork, even for the 90's..That joke they played on Kevin was so stupid, how is it funny to convince someone who barely knows you anyhow, that you are actually someone else? It's not. Neither is pranking people.

Bunim-Murray and MTV would get their stuff together and release some of the seasons on DVD. Yes, I realize the biggest holdup is music rights, but I wouldn't mind if they did they same thing they did when they released "The State" on DVD, just dub in some generic music.

My favorite season was London. I know a lot of people bitch about it being boring, but I liked it because they had an interesting group of people, and they didn't get into fights and destroy stuff. They seemed like they would be more fun to hang out with.

I was around 12 when the show premiered on some music channel that played cool music all the time. The idea of living with strangers and having to deal with their shit seemed so terrifying and yet so very exiting to me.

by Anonymousreply 1203/23/2013

I didn't know it was some copyright hold up r11, I just assumed MTV didn't want to expend any money for release of shows that aren't relevant to people now like the teen moms. I think I watched a bit of London but got bored, for the reasons you mentioned. I wanted high drama like LA and San Fran.

Kevin's spoken word act was hilarious. Arsenio Hall is the biggest thing in years or is going to be? Oh, Kevin..That was right when Arsenio started to fade. And dumb Eric being the voice of reason to Norman about Julie and Kevin's fight. And why was Norman deemed the judge and jury of who started it, etc? It's still better than the swill on MTV now.

I liked London too, but it did have one of the more violent RW moments, when punker Neil (IMO the hottest of all of the RW cast members) was performing on stage and then tongue kissed a heckler, who then proceeded to take a bite out of Neil's tongue.

I've always had a facination with the series since the beginning, and some of my favorite TV moments come from the various RW seasons . . .

"It wasn't not funny" from CA

Julie's mother visiting NYC from down south, and Norman sarcastically telling her to bring a condom when she & Julie go out sightseeing.

The Pedro/Judd vs Puck confrontation from SF.

The Seattle Slap

The Flora/Dan confrontations from Miami

Genesis hanging out with drag queens in Boston (and Montana giving a kid from the school alcohol)

DADT era Danny dating the marine whose face couldn't be shown in New Orleans

A drunken Ruthie in Hawaii (and whiny Amaya constantly calling for "Colllllllinnnnn")

Ace in Paris eating only at McDonalds and complaining that no one there speaks "American"

Cutter Frankie from San Diego I

Gay porn Dustin from Vegas II

Emotionally fucked-up Dan from San Diego II (perhaps my favorite season)

And who was the guy who said his penis was so huge, it's the 8th member of the cast?

by Anonymousreply 2703/23/2013

R11 Agreed. London is by far the best season. Coolest people and by and large they got along with one another. I see that Aussie Jacinda has become an actress. She was in the recent flop,Zero Hour....

That original NYC inaugural season...remember when Julie came down to eat with the other cast members and dressed up like a high class escort? What that signaling that she was down to fuck with Eric? Or was she boning some other guy? As a gay guy, I was so fascinated by her drawl,her rack and her potential fall from innocence into pure slutdom!

by Anonymousreply 2803/23/2013

R25 The irony about Ace was that his mother was French or of French descent!

Danny from the NO Real World was such a post twink hottie. There was something cute about him.

Davis from Denver was the hottest guy on the show. God was he beautiful.I would have sucked,blown,teabagged,rimmed and swallowed that one for days on end.He also had an in the closet military guy .

by Anonymousreply 2903/23/2013

I also agree that London was a good season. It is strange looking back on it how the Americans were so in deference to the wisdom and vibe of the Euro cast members as if they looked up to them like elder statesman. BTW, is the trust fund race car driver guy still racing mini formula 1 cars today? I am also convinced that playwright Jay was gay or at least closet gay. The show never really went there, but I always sensed that.

For me the most memorable moments from the whole MTV series remains that piece of work Ballu from Road Rules Europe and her "Your going in the water" fight with Antoine who she desperately wanted to sleep with in the absence of her black boyfriend from the Netherlands.

by Anonymousreply 3003/23/2013

I loved the Vegas season, which was the trashiest season ever. Kind of appropriate since it was Vegas. I also loved New Orleans and London and Seattle. I also liked Hawaii and Miami.

I stopped watching after Vegas, but I did watch the Cancun season because of that hot blond guy.

by Anonymousreply 3103/23/2013

R30 That black guy Steve was nothing to look at, a real fug. When Belou first saw Antoine, you could tell she wanted him.She acted that way women act when they get wet and try to feign disinterest in a guy.

R31 Who Joey? That guy was a trip. He got(fucked) that lesbian/bi girl, Ayiia, who acted she she hated his guts, she secretly sweated him in the end no matter what she said. His edginess made her wet.After Ayiia fucked two of the girl's in the cast you would never have thought that Joey would have screwed her. However the pussy wants what the pussy wants.....

Yes, r33, Stephen publicly came out of the closet in 2008 during a Real World special of some sort on MTV. At the time, he said he was engaged to his partner, don't know what happened with that.

Stephen also claimed that he had apologized to Irene for hitting her. But fellow Seattle cast member Nathan said he was still friends with Irene, and that Stephen never actually did apologize.

by Anonymousreply 3603/23/2013

In terms of pure Real World male hotness, after god knows how many seasons I still think it's hard to top Eric Nies. For a while he had a sort of bearded hippie look going that was equally sexy to his original RW look. Would be interested to see a pic from the last year or two.

The weirdest season was Hawaii. The gay guy and the weird girl plotted to bring the other cast mates down. Somehow the other cast mates found out about it and the gay guy left the show mid-season. It was all so strange.

Seattle came next and that season was BORING once Irene left, but she was fabulously crazy. I loved Stephen slapping her followed by her laughing like the crazy bitch she was. She blamed all of her crazy on Lyme disease.

R38 Yeah the gay guy(was his name Justin) left for some lame concocted Hollywood reason...his aunt was sick! He was weak anyway.

R34 Norm was fucking Charles Perez. Norm seems like a nice guy but CP was way out of his league. Maybe norm's third leg was his way into CP's heart.

Yeah, Jay came out of the closet a couple of years later. (IIRC, when he was filming in London, he did have a GF back home who came out to visit him.)

[quote]Davis from Denver was the hottest guy on the show. God was he beautiful.I would have sucked,blown,teabagged,rimmed and swallowed that one for days on end.He also had an in the closet military guy .

Physically he was a good looking guy, but he was so messed up psychologically as a result of his Christian upbringing colliding with his being gay. I think it was exasperated by his rooming with the even more Christian Stephen - the straight black guy who looked kinda hot in his tight blue underwear - whose acceptance Davis clearly craved. And then there was that fight with Tyrie.

by Anonymousreply 4303/23/2013

Davis was the absolute epitome of twink. Good looking on paper but in the blandest way possible. No thanks. I think Danny from New Orleans remains the best looking gay guy on the show ever.

Whoever remembered Chris from Road Rules Europe, good call. There was something intense about his sexiness, like he could make you cum just by touching your hand.

Most of you probably know that Sean from Boston is now a GOP congressman from Wisconsin. And he is married to Rachel from San Francisco. They have like five kids I think.

Justin from Hawaii really seemed like a rotten person. That weird scheming with Kyra(?) seemed like it was inspired by the movie "Cruel Intentions." I remember in his last scene before he left because of his "sick aunt," the soundtrack music was the Hole song "Awful." Very fitting.

Colin from that season was another hottie. I remember a couple years after his season he had a blog where he did lots of blatant teasing about his sexuality, talking about he and his buddies sucking each others' boners. But it had a weird performance art quality that made me think it was some kind of attention-seeking put-on.

Which season had Bunifa?

by Anonymousreply 4703/23/2013

I am glad someone mentioned Justin from Hawaii. History and public opinion has not been kind to him, but he was my favorite cast member from that season. He was the most level-headed and cynical member of the cast, but compared to the truly vapid and lovesick Amaya & Colin and the out of control drunk Ruthie his personality served as sane balance to the season. Justin did team up with Kaia to wreck the Colin/Amaya romance while on their group vacation. His scheming earned him the wrath of his fellow cast mates when they discovered his plot and combined with the news of a dying relative, the producers edited the show to make it seem like bad karma for being so manipulative. Yet the moments when he talked about his aunt, really humanized him and I saw him as possessing a much kinder side from what was shown throughout the season.

Justin has been by far the smartest RR cast member in the history of the show and there is no doubt that he was a master manipulator. He successfully lobbied the entire cast to choose his vacation destination of India for their group vacation as well as breaking up a teen romance in the process. It is fitting that after the show aired he went on to become a corporate lawyer in NYC. And even though he is the most hated gay in the show's history, ironically he has probably been the most successful career wise talking on cases for gay families and lobbying for gay rights in the courts.

I also liked that he choose to move on post RR and not to do the countless reunion show (like Aaron for LA season 1) rather than dwelling on their time in the spotlight like the uber popular Danny Roberts who milked the college speaking circuit for almost a decade after his season ended.

Tami is the all-time nuttiest Real World cast member, primarily because she was on camera before the culture of reality tv had metastasized and so was not playing by a rulebook to get camera time. She was just being herself. Let us remember:

- Tami got out of a physical activity by informing everyone she was pregnant

- Tami then got an abortion. The cameras followed her to the clinic. She called it "her surgery."

- Tami got her JAW WIRED SHUT to lose weight.

- Tami got David kicked out of the house for "sexual harassment"

- Tami coined the line that will live in infamy: "IT WASNT NOT FUNNY."

I must be forgetting something.

R46 Question in regards to Eric Nies. I remember in the inaugural season they identified him as a male model in his bio on the show and after Real World aired, he went on to host "The Grind" and a variety of other MTV ventures and workout videos. What exactly was the extent of his pre-Real World modeling career? Was he doing runway work for the big fashion houses like Prada, Gucci or was his whole modeling career just a manufactured back-story on the part of the producers to cravenly exploit the beefcake factor in the show's premiere season. I don't remember the show following him to modeling gigs.

He stupidly thought he going into a tent with his Cuban boyfriend would be shocking BUT the threesome turned out to be more shocking.That Cuban slut Melissa called him a flamer and meanwhile she's fooling around with a girl she doesn't know(she just met her that night) and her roommate ,Mike in a bathroom....... how classy.

Dan also dated a Jewish guy who was a lawyer. I think his name was Arnie.The relationship seemed to be going nowhere.His new Cuban flame Johnny was better looking but he was boring as well.

[quote][R60] Chicago was being filmed during 9/11, Aneesa's birthday was the same day and they let the cast watch the news.

MTV was particular prescient with Chicago. It was the first REAL WORLD show filmed in the summer/fall then airing early the following year rather than winter/spring and then airing in the summer. As you stated, Aneesa's birthday just happened to be on 9/11 and I recall a lot of buildup to that date. Also, the freakiest thing to me was that one of the bedrooms was designed with airplane models crashing into the wall. The cast members quickly took them down after that.

[quote]Besides the same 10 losers who do the challenges every year, I'm surprised MTV has never done a "where are they now" with all these cast members who no one hears from anymore.

I seem to recall that MTV made a couple such where are they now shows that profiled what Danny Roberts got up to post Real World New Orleans in regards to his relationship with the closeted military officer. I also remember a big 10 year anniversary reunion show where everyone from the first 10 seasons except Aaron from Real World season 2 LA and of course Pedro who was deceased) was in attendance, but it was more of a retrospective on your time on the show thing rather than what the cast members were doing today. It would take many hours and multiple episodes to profile all of the people who have been on the series in the 26 plus seasons the show has been on, and even then they would probably only profile the 'memorable' cast members. MTV is too cheap to bring all of those people together in one place and just scheduling it would be hard. I also suspect many cast members would rather forget their time on tv and have history forget them as well for the sake of their careers.

R128 I don't know about the details with the reunion show (I never heard about the supposed pay dispute you mention). I do remember reading from a thread that posted the contract associated with becoming a real world contestant that they only get $800 or so for doing the post wrap up reunion episode after their season ends. MTV is really cheap in regards to its 'talent' and considering that these people end up looking like fools on camera, it is hardly worth it in the long run. Those drunk hookups have a way of living on forever on the internet. Not really the best advertising for someone applying for a corporate or gov. job later in life.

I'm pretty sure that was the Reunion special and when it aired, they aired the behind the stage footage of the casts signing some sort of petition and trying to refuse to start the filming.

This thread reminded me of something, and since it's become kind of a catch-all of all seasons of Real World & Road Rules, this might be an OK place to mention it.

Theo Von (Road Rules Maximum Velocity Tour) was on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen either last week or the week before. He was the guest bartender. The barkeeps don't normally get questions from the audience, but someone tweeted in commenting how they always loved his 'sexy' gap-toothed smile. But he smiled to show he's had the gap fixed now.

I don't even know what he was there to promote - maybe some comedy appearance since he does stand-up now.

And I had to look up what season of Road Rules he originally appeared on because he's one that did so many challenges it becomes tough to remember how they got their MTV start.

Reading all of these posts is reminding me of some more . . .

Remember short Joe in Miami dating that bubbleheaded blonde woman who was twice his height?

Or a drunken Tyrie from Denver peeing on the side of the building and consequently getting arrested by the police.

Or that guy with the heavy Boston accent - I don't remember from which season - getting into a fistfight outside a bar and subsequently getting his head cracked open when he hit the street?

And didn't that Jewish chick Cara from Chicago fling a knife or a fork at Kyle because decided he wanted to fuck one of the other female cast members instead? (And speaking of Chicago, wasn't Aneesa the woman who always went to the bathroom with the door wide open, much to the disgust of the other cast members?)

Reading this thread was fun. There was a site and forum called tubescan which focused mostly on the RW and RR. The people who ran the site had insider connections to MTV and Bunim Murray Productions. Back in 2002, they said that the cast members for RW and RR shows made between 3 to 4 k per season and some of the challenge shows were around the same range.

Tubescan also gave out info on the past cast members and often relatives and friends of cast members were the ones giving info to Tubescan. In the late 90s and early 00s some of the cast members were doing a lot of speaking gigs at colleges and some Tubescan forum members used to give recaps of the speaking events. Julie Stoffer, the Mormon from New Orleans made enemies with several RW alums because she used shady tactics in getting colleges to book her instead of other RW alums. Her NO castmate Melissa called her out on Battles of the Sexes 1.

Cara from the Chicago cast appeared on E! True Hollywood Story and said that she was pissed that the producers had planted night vision cameras in the bedrooms. It was rumored that she and fellow cast member Kerri threatened to sue MTV. Some cast members have publicly trashed MTV. Kevin from Return to NY bashed MTV on a radio show in Texas.

It would have made for a better season if Willie would have just been himself. He had so little screen time that I almost forgot he was even on that season.

r196 I think you're thinking of David Seattle season.

He was so so so HOT - and he was pining for that chick Kira - (didn't she work for the show?)

by Anonymousreply 19903/24/2013

The show today is basically a step short of soft core porn. How appropriate that a recent season featured gay-for-pay porn "actor" Dustin Zito.

Looking back, the original Las Vegas season seems like the tipping point. That was actually a decent cast, but the blatant hooking up really juiced what was starting to seem like a stale format. And they've never really looked back.

I remember reading (probably on DL) that the Seattle season featured a lot of off-camera drug use. Any old gossip on that?

Mary Ellis Bunim is watching from hell, where she wishes she could repent for her sins. But it's too late.

LOVED watching RW NYC. Such memories. I can imagine many younger viewers watching this in awe at the fact that there were no computers in the house, that roommates were waiting for phone calls because there were no cell phones. The clothes are dated (I still wear me jean shorts and Doc Martens like Becky)and just the discussions in general. As many have said, the Las Vegas season was the end of an era. I know that the producers were different by that time and they discovered that hot tubs, alcohol and pretty (and dimwitted) people is all the show needed. Sad how the show has become.

Jordan Wiseley hooks up with one of the girls, but he does yoga and has extreme gayvoice. When it's revealed that one of the castmates posed in Playboy - a stupid inversion of the Dustin Zito thing - he reacts by putting his hands over his mouth in the most ef*eminate way ever.

Overall, the new season looks like a bust: a closeted gay, lots of drunken fights, and people with definite First World problems.

She did die of CF. I made an exception to watch for one more season (we've all said that) to watch Frankie, both because my bro died of CF and because I am from SD. Frankie was a different breed of cat for sure. Sometimes people with fatal diseases use it as an excuse for being jerks.

It's really nostalgic watching the original seasons of 'The Real World'. I was in my early teens when they first started airing and I can remember how novel reality TV was at the time and how 'The Real World' felt more like a sociological experiment and there was some genuine attempt at showing diversity that created lots of dynamic tension and magic. The current incarnations of 'The Real World' mostly pale in comparison and the first Las Vegas season was the genesis of that. It's ironic that the 90s seasons were largely more serious and "issues" oriented, whereas the seasons post-9/11 are more about partying, booze and T&A.

My favorite seasons were/are: New York ('92), Los Angeles ('93), San Francisco, Miami, New Orleans, Chicago, Brooklyn, Washington D.C., San Diego ('12).

R269 Maybe you don't know this, but Pedro died just months after filming finished. So obviously he was probably feeling the complications of the disease while filming and it would be kind of hard not to talk about it all the time when it's taking up his life. Also, he was interesting because back then, there were still very few treatments for AIDS and people got to see the everyday life of what it was like to be dying of the disease.

Now you need to STOP LYING. Sean WAS with Pedro the whole time towards the end and when he was in the hospital and his dad even shook Sean's hand when they first met eachother in the airport when Pedro was being brought home to Miami. You can watch all that in this documentary clip:

Did anyone else notice that when the roommates were interviewing the 3 prospective candidates to replace Puck - a search which resulted in the selection of Jo - one of them was a very young Mark Long of future Road Rules and Challenge fame? And was Kris, the blonde who they also interviewed, ever brought back in the fold for some future related project?

Yes. I believe when they first launched RR they did a casting special and they talked about how Mark was so liked during the RW casting that they specifically brought him back because they wanted to work with him.

Oh yeah, I was gonna say about Jo. So bland I forgot her. What was up with her?

She was like the Jo in Melrose Place, a presumptuous annoying bitch that thought she was so cool and just suddenly fit in despite clearly being wrong and out of place. It's never the same if you're a reject replacement drafted in.

God, Melissa is and will always be one of my all-time favorite RWers. By a mile. She's so smart, funny, interesting, and articulate. I remember being a bored, lonely 20-year old living at home and I emailed her about a year after her season ended. And she wrote back.

It's weird to see her as she is now. She looks a lot softer and she seems to have calmed down. I wish her all the best.

The first season cast of Road Rules was mostly made up of people who almost got cast in previous seasons of the Real World. The native American chick almost got cast for RW: London, believe it or not.

by Anonymousreply 32203/25/2013

I always thought Road Rules was so stupid. Glad they eventually cancelled it.

by Anonymousreply 32303/25/2013

Exactly, r312. Back in its early days, the housemates were interesting because they chose to be part of the show, ASIDE from their regular jobs/schooling. They were pursuing other dreams, and yes, they probably knew that the show could get them publicity, but still, they had some discernible life outside of the house.

Now, it's the opposite. Their life IS the house and being on the show. I was looking at the cast roster for the current season, and two of them are listed as being "models". Really? How fucking boring, and I bet Jacinda from London probably seems ten times more sophisticated than either of them.

r310 I wasn't lying, for Christ's sake, I have no fucking axe to grind with Sean, just going I what I heard and read, including this interview excerpt from POZ magazine:

"Sadly, Sean did not have an opportunity to meet Pedro's family until after Pedro got sick, so sick that he could no longer communicate to them the importance of Sean in his life. On TV, it always appeared that Pedro's parents were in complete support of their son's lifestyle and choices. "That wasn't my experience," Sean says flatly. "I shouldn't have had to deal with a lot of the stuff that I dealt with in Miami. If Pedro and I were legally married, his family would have understood and respected my right to be there. And, of course, that was an abomination. It was just very hypocritical and unnecessary and I didn't understand it. It caused even more turmoil around an already desperate and hurtful situation." He raises his voice. "I was told Pedro did not need to have a lover anymore. And it was very obvious from the start, when he could communicate, that he wanted me there. I have a lot of resentment toward dealing with his family's homophobia, as well as dealing with him dying."

Which is pretty much what I said I had heard, Pedro's family turned Sean away and by the time he saw him, he was far gone.

Didn't she buy herself a puppy and then leave it to everyone else in the house to take care of/clean up after?

R329 I think R310's (overheated) point was that Pedro's BF (Sean Sasser) didn't abandon him as was posted.

According to a link I came across, Pedro's "family try to bar Sasser from seeing him. As his condition deteriorates, and his story makes the news, he confronts his sister over his family's exclusion of Sasser. After they view a videotape of the wedding ceremony, they have a change of heart, and welcome Sasser back into the fold."

Also, I came across something somewhere that Pedro wasn't alone when he died. There were a couple of family members plus Judd & Pam from the series with him.

R327, it wasn't the race car driver from the London season who was a closet case but that skinny little playwright Jay wannabe as I mentioned earlier.

You know in all of us mentioning who is, was or should have been gay, but not one of us has mentioned . . .

Of course, Melissa said all of this upon learning that Mary had died. Classy.

In addition to the cheating scandal on Semester at Sea didn't Veronica also get caught stealing the clothes of one of the other girls? I think her name was Pua or something. All I remember about her is that she randomly blurted out that she'd been raped in the past and randomly shaved her head.

Also who was the girl from RR who got eliminated (in the first season where they did eliminations) and then showed up at the Back to New York house to hook up with Malik whom she'd met during casting? It was such a blatant attempt to stay on TV but I kinda admired her shameless fame whoring because it was so ballsy.

by Anonymousreply 33403/26/2013


Yes, Veronica was a thief, stealing papers and tops. It was all in the same episode.

Pua was looking for some top of hers she wanted to wear. She asked her roommates and Veronica just sat there like she didnt know what was going on.

Later, Pua goes into her roommates closets and finds her top crumpled and hidden in the back of Veronica's closet.

She decides to wear it out that night so she can see Veronicas reaction.

She confronts Veronica and Veronica denies it. Later, off camera, Veronica admits she stole it and asks Pua to go on camera with a fake story about how Pua had her friend try the top on and the friend took it off and threw it into a pile of Veronicas close and it just got misplaced.

I wonder what happened to the English guy/rock singer. Did he go on to have an illustrious career?

The German guy rented a classic sports car. He wanted to take some girl to Brighton for the weekend but damaged the car on the way home and lost his deposit. I've often thought of renting a classic car and always think of him and change my mind.

[quote]Didn't she [Jacinda] buy herself a puppy and then leave it to everyone else in the house to take care of/clean up after?

Yes, she was an international model and kept going away and leaving the dog. I live near the pet shop where she bought the dog and they no longer have dogs in the window. You have to order them. No more buying dogs on a whim from pet shops in England.

She moved to America and became a successful actress.

R319, Pedro was just 22 when he died and 17 when he was diagnosed. He started having sex when he was only 13. In the mid-80s I'm guessing he didn't have much sex-ed and being that young was probably quite naive about getting HIV.

I love this description of RW - London:

"7. London (Season 4; Aired 1995) London got a lot of criticism for being boring. For episodes upon episodes of aimless twentysomethings lounging about their Notting Hill castle, picking up dog crap. In hindsight, the show is a complete breath of fresh air. With the bar-hopping of the last decade's worth of seasons having grown much more monotonous than the London sloth ever was, watching these low-key roommates actually talk to and learn about one another is almost thrilling. It's also one of the most purely likable casts. At the time, Neil's Brit-punk superiority chafed and race-car driver Mike's frat-boy routine grew wearisome, but pull up an episode on Hulu and see how well-intentioned and relatable these kids are. Jacinda probably comes closest to being objectionable — she's kind of a bully, kind of a flake, decent prankster, though — but there's a core of decency in this group that was rare even in the early seasons. MVP: Sharon. Wonderful, sweet, chatty-as-hell Sharon. She took a lot of (usually good-hearted) grief from her roommates and responded with a smile. She also nearly died of strep (or something) and had a really beautiful singing voice and may well be the best human being to ever be on this show."

It may have been "boring" at the time, but I imagine any season would have a tough time following RW - SF.

There was a toilet/toothbrush incident on the 2nd New Orleans season. Is that maybe what you are thinking of?

'Non-gay' hairdresser Ryan had been fighting with gay Preston for an extended period. One of the things Ryan had done was rub Preston's smokes in his own ass, or something.

So Preston retaliated by using Ryan's toothbrush to clean the toilet.

Ryan called the cops for that 'assault' (or whatever it would be considered legally) and the production team had to get involved.
