“Real World: Ex-Plosion” hasn’t yet begun, but things are already heating up…literally. On the premiere episode, Ashley, a.k.a. “Drunk Ashley,” will try to cure a case of late-night drunchies by frying up a few burgers, but when she turns her food into weaponry in this sneak peek, things go from silly to serious, and Arielle, whom Ashley showers with hot oil, isn’t laughing off her roomie’s intoxicated antics.
After Arielle declines Ashley’s offer for some piping-hot beef patties, “Drunk Ashley” steps back, winds up and lobs the burgers — along with the rest of the pan’s boiling liquid — at Arielle’s head. “The audacity of someone to throw hot oil in someone’s face, like, that is crazy!” Arielle says of the incident. Still, she commits to taking the high road, and rather than give Ashley a good ol’ fashioned cussing out, she vows to keep her wits about her. “I’m telling myself: Be cool, and talk to her about it when she’s sober.” Man, can’t say we would have been as level-headed in that situation. Arielle is one cool customer!
Check out Ashley’s “Real World” burger toss, and be sure to tune in to the “Ex-Plosion” premiere Wednesday, January 8 at 10/9c!
