When we first started considering which of the “Real World” roommates were going to fall for each other while gallivanting around the idyllic island of St. Thomas, we secretly put all of our chips down on Robb and Marie. Sure, they arrived together and therefore had some extra time to bond, but when the Goon Squad co-founders settled in on their first night away from home and the proverbial sparks flew, we knew we had a winner. Here, five reasons why they’re a solid match.
1. Marie’s Already Passed The ‘Rent Test
Meeting mom and dad is the most tenuous part of any relationship, but Marie got it out of the way on day one. She accidentally flaunted her foul mouth in front of Robb’s impressionable little sister, but quickly eclipsed her language faux pas with a bout of infectious laughter.
2. They Have Matching Tats
For whatever reason–an appreciation of life, or perhaps fond memories of watching “The Lion King” as children–this tag-team got inked with the same happy catch phrase long before meeting. Robb sports the “no worries” mantra on his leg, whereas Marie proudly dons it on her rear. With matching markings, this twosome is bound for a calm existence!
3. Both Love Prank Wars
It was a rough morning when hungover Marie woke up not only with the lingering taste of the previous night’s debauchery in her mouth, but with the weight of a dozen sandwich-spread jars upon her. Retaliation, of course, was the only answer and her partner-in-crime, Robb, was the target. Game on.
4. She Washed Peanut Butter Off Of Him
Removing jelly’s arguably better counterpart can be tricky, especially if you’ve done a really good job globbing it onto someone’s body. But Marie was fearless and stepped into the shower with her muscular mate to remove the sticky food from his back. And Robb, well, he had no complaints.
5. Incapable Of Dating Other People
Even though this team successfully set up dining plans with Molly and Max, when the moment arrived, Robb and Marie had no interest in making small talk with practical strangers. “How about we ditch both of them and go to get sushi ourselves?” Marie jokingly suggested at the 11th hour. And that, friends, is how their first date came to be.
