During each season of “Real World,” there are inevitably roommates that fall for each other, and based on the intel we gathered from our helpful little Spy Cam, we knew the crushes this time around would be aplenty. BUT, we had no idea that everyone (well, except for poor Brandon) was going to pair up during tonight’s “St. Thomas” premiere.
It may be too soon to place bets, but if you had to (and we’re saying you do!), which of the three (or four, if you’re still rooting for Laura and Brandon) couples would you put your money on? Let’s take a look at our current match-ups, shall we?
Robb and Marie
Perhaps it’s because she insulted him within the first few minutes of meeting him (remember the ginger comment?), or because she kinda-sorta got the thumbs up from his parents (despite cursing in front of his younger sister), but whatever the reason, Marie and her fellow Goon Squad co-founder hit it off famously. The two were the last people
standing drinking in the house and seemed to have formed a legitimate bond. She might feel differently about Robb in the morning when she learns that he was behind the peanut butter stunt, but she can’t get too angry, right? Hakuna Matata!
Swift and LaToya
When Toya first heard Swift outline his 10-point female grading scale, she couldn’t help but laugh at his cockiness. “You look good, you’re alright or you’re a no,” she said, dismissing his juvenile system. But his amateurish tool for ranking hook-up partners didn’t completely turn her off, as she continued to spend time with him and take serious interest in his post-collegiate plans. We smell something brewing here.
Trey and Laura
Laura wasted no time telling the girls that she had eyes for all-American sweetheart Trey. Not only did they play dress up (well, she wore a tutu), but she felt so comfortable around him that she even opened up about her gross poop prank. Trey found comfort in her, too, as he ran and told her about his frustration with sh**-talking Brandon. The two have a lot of chemistry, but there’s no telling whether their roomie from Boston will stand in the way.
Brandon and Laura?
All it took were a few minutes with the hot redhead in the neon pink skirt for Brandon to fall head over heels. And he wasn’t wrong to think she was into him–she sat on his shoulders in the pool and even showed him some very personal birth documents–but after realizing that Laura had a connection with Trey, he got a wee bit jealous and fell into a funk. It’s too early to write this twosome off, although Brandon’s got a lot of catching up to do if he wants to compete against Trey.
