Tonight the “Real World: D.C.” house took its final bow, but not before the housemates accomplished a few more things: Andrew opened up to the idea of Andrea moving to Colorado, Callie produced a profitable flicka show and Mike knocked a few politicians’ argyle socks off with his well-articulated push for equality.
It was also an episode about one-upping your roommates. (Panda may have walked inside the White House, but Mike attended the HRC National Dinner … where his hero, President Obama, spoke!).
Unfortunately, Mike had to face some haters as well. While at the Equality March, he was confronted with an anti-gay demonstrator — the very antithesis of what he stands for. Irritated by it, Mike responded antagonistically, but his dad persuaded him to go back and give the activist a chance to plead his case. While neither party abandoned ship, it was commendable to see him handle himself with such composure.
+ Mike’s been tested quite a few times in D.C., and he always seems to stand firm on his beliefs. Do you think he has a future in politics? Take the poll, then check out our “D.C. on the DL” exclusive, where the roommates talk about Mike’s potential.
