Which ‘Real World’ Housemate Looked The Most Shocked By The Exes’ Invasion?

by Matthew Scott Donnelly

Thought Taylor Swift‘s surprised face was pronounced? Clearly you missed last week’s “Real World: Ex-Plosion” episode, in which the show’s cast members came home from a day trip to find out their exes (minus Jamie‘s) had moved in. The six housemates tried their best to be cordial, but amid hugs and how-are-yous, there was no way they could hide their looks of utter shock. And you know what? We can’t say we blame them. Well played, producers!

From Jenny‘s lowered jaw to Arielle‘s fit of maniacal laughter at the prospect of the drama to come, each of the cast members had an evident reaction to the bomb dropped on their San Francisco pad. Relive all of the reunion magic in GIFs, tell us who looked the most confused and be sure to see how the exes’ invasion pans out on tonight’s new “Real World: Ex-Plosion”!

Jenny’s jaw practically hit the floor upon seeing Brian.

Though Jamie’s ex, Cameron, didn’t make it, she was shocked all the same.

Thomas was noticeably uncomfortable at the sight of his ex, Hailey.

Jay‘s on good terms with his ex, but he was still sweating her surprise.

Can someone get Cory a paper bag and run him through breathing techniques?

Arielle, who was thrilled to see Ashley, finds all the new tension laughable.


or more like which cast member was the best actor/actress?

I haven't watched the Real World in years. Anyone have an idea of when the next RW/RR Challenge is?
kurrrara 6th-Feb-2014 05:16 am (UTC)
are the challenges any good still? haven't seen them in awhile but i literally only liked the seasons with kenny, CT, wes etc; plus the classic females like coral lol but she's way too old now. the new people do nothing for me.
clouddomino 6th-Feb-2014 05:26 am (UTC)
The last one (Rivals) was pretty good, but only because they brought back Wes, CT, Diem, and Johnny. Some of the newer ones I didn't recognize, but I remember one girl freaked the fuck out because her ex put ketchup on her (it's apparently a phobia of hers, idk). Frank (San Diego 2) is one of the biggest antagonists from the past few seasons, and so annoying to watch though.

Also, I'm pretty sure they're not bringing Kenny and Evan back because of what they did to Tonya iirc. There were lawsuits involved against them and MTV.

i still like the challenges. not many of the old school people hang around anymore but rivals 2 was actually pretty enjoyable. i hated battle of the seasons tho because the vets on that challenge were all pushovers and those who weren't like wes got out immediately. a lot of the newer ppl are actually pretty good characters, like frank.

The next challenge was already filmed, should come after this Rw season is over

I've been curious about watching this only for the ex factor drama.
elementalranger 6th-Feb-2014 05:09 am (UTC)
Whoever's in charge of casting for the recent seasons needs to be fired. The only decent/interesting/funny cast member seems to be Jenny. Everyone else is boring beyond words or just completely unlikable.
markedglory 6th-Feb-2014 05:14 am (UTC)
I was hoping Arielle would have been more interesting. Then again, her airtime is very small.
elementalranger 6th-Feb-2014 05:18 am (UTC)
mte. her look is everything but she's not bringing the personality to match. Feels like a waste tbh b/c we've already got another nonfactor roommate in Jay and Ashley's gone
blowinmoneyfast 6th-Feb-2014 05:22 am (UTC)
this, and she has no drama with her ex so i feel like she's totally gonna be the forgotten castmember this season
williammiller 6th-Feb-2014 06:46 pm (UTC)
I like Arielle and Jenny the best.
imabadkid 6th-Feb-2014 06:47 pm (UTC)
The crazy thing is casting-wise this is the best they've done in years.
thrillisgone_89 6th-Feb-2014 05:13 am (UTC)
cory is an immature douche...but he is fine as FUCK.
markedglory 6th-Feb-2014 05:17 am (UTC)
When I don't see his teeth, I agree.
dancedallnight 6th-Feb-2014 05:13 am (UTC)
i didn't watch, but this made me lol

markedglory 6th-Feb-2014 05:17 am (UTC)
lmao yes.
kurrrara 6th-Feb-2014 05:14 am (UTC)
OT but speaking of exes, relationships and shit...

so i've been hooking up with this kid on and off since like november. and by hooking up everything but fucking. he's slept with mad people and i think of him as a ho, but damnit is he charming and persuasive. i've been trynna stay away from him buuuut literally every time i see him he ends up in my bed or im in his. idk how it works. its sorcery. oh and he's had an on and off girlfriend throughout all of this making it look extra bad. like he's the stereotypical "stay away from him, it's all games with him" type of guy and i wanna cut him off but i also know he's good and bed and feel like i'd be cutting myself short if i didnt go through with it... ohhhh liiife
homicidalslayer 6th-Feb-2014 07:13 am (UTC)
If he can show you some clean STD test results, I (personally) say treat yourself to a (thoroughly protected) casual romp or 4, then lose his number for a few months.

In any case, good luck with that.

foolishy 6th-Feb-2014 07:57 am (UTC)
if you're doing everything but fucking, i'd say either just fuck and get it over with or cut him off completely. either way, like you said, he's playing games and has an ex he hasn't let go off. not good.
markedglory 6th-Feb-2014 05:19 am (UTC)
I like Thomas. His opinion on body counts is such BS.

Hailey is a nut.
blowinmoneyfast 6th-Feb-2014 05:19 am (UTC)
the previews for whats about to come is crazy. i remember when you used to get kicked off the show for just shoving someone but they seem to let all that ish fly these days.

jenny is the best though omfg, or maybe the rest just suck that much (except i really want to do things to thomas so i kinda let him get away with his boringness/doucheyness). her ex seems like he's gonna be trouble.

also, cory's ex girlfriend is a damn LOON. who the fuck hasn't seen their ex in a year and is still obsessed with him like that

This is the BGC age. They gotta keep these people around as long as possible. (real talk, they should have a BGC reject on every season :-X)

thomas makes me feel things but he has such a immature mindset that everytime he speaks I can't handle it
markedglory 6th-Feb-2014 05:28 am (UTC)
Hurricane Nia would have been perfect for this season. What a waste.
blowinmoneyfast 6th-Feb-2014 05:28 am (UTC)
yeah true it's just ridic how far the show has come. like that blonde girl that kicked off of sydney for shoving someone and last year queen nia beat that ass and stayed in the house. looks like theres gonna be a lot of violence this season
williammiller 6th-Feb-2014 06:48 pm (UTC)
I cannot stand Cory's ex-gf's voice. It's so fucking irritating.
tw_love 6th-Feb-2014 05:39 am (UTC)
I need to know who's going to be "pregnant"!!
blowinmoneyfast 6th-Feb-2014 05:45 am (UTC)
i think it's going to be cory's ex
noneformethanx OT but relationship related6th-Feb-2014 05:47 am (UTC)
So I kicked out my boyfriend two weeks ago (exboyfriend now). And I found his profile on the dating website we met on. I'm on there too so I can't talk shit. But what really got to me was that he told me he NEVER wants to get married. Getting married isn't my main objective here but he's the first person in 10 years that I would consider it. So his profile says he's not against getting married again. That bothered me so much. I felt like I wasn't good enough. I'm just tired of guys not being honest :-(.
~pity party ~
boltonlove Re: OT but relationship related6th-Feb-2014 06:27 am (UTC)
I hope this doesn't come off rude, but if you kicked him out why would you think you weren't good enough? It sounds like he wasn't good enough for you!!
noneformethanx Re: OT but relationship related6th-Feb-2014 06:32 am (UTC)
I treated him very well and it wasn't appreciated. I need to stop feeling sorry for myself.
nevermademe Re: OT but relationship related6th-Feb-2014 03:16 pm (UTC)
idgi. we're you both on a dating website behind each other's back?
baptismtonight 6th-Feb-2014 05:48 am (UTC)
i fucking HATE Jamie's wack ass. She's a psycho.
elementalranger 6th-Feb-2014 06:02 am (UTC)
ita. She seems so bitchy in everything she does and is not fun to watch. I already dread her being on new challenges. Plus this shit she's going on about ~respecting the relationship~ is dumb af. Sis, you been dating this guy for less than a month. There is barely a relationship to "respect"
blowinmoneyfast 6th-Feb-2014 06:09 am (UTC)
same ughhh i hate how she acts like she gives no fucks and is a bad ass one second and the next second she is just like this super clingy possessive and insecure girlfriend
dynamite_guy 6th-Feb-2014 06:46 am (UTC)
she is insecure and controlling as hell...

...but she has had a point when it comes to Thomas's ex, tho.
skankattack 6th-Feb-2014 06:56 am (UTC)
she's so insecure
magwildwood 6th-Feb-2014 07:46 am (UTC)
Same. She's been annoying since day one
hannamez8 6th-Feb-2014 09:44 am (UTC)
Can't stand her either and her twitter is the worst 
go_away_plzz 6th-Feb-2014 11:21 am (UTC)
lol i liked her until i followed her on twitter.
williammiller 6th-Feb-2014 06:50 pm (UTC)
I thought in the beginning that she would be my favorite because she seemed like the kind of person I would hang out with but holy shit, she's so possessive over a guy she's known for less than a month.
williammiller 6th-Feb-2014 06:00 am (UTC)
I rme when Cory and his ex were in the show and he was all "your boobs are small."

I can't stand anyone except Jenny and the cute lesbian and her girlfriend.
chokey_lowkey 6th-Feb-2014 06:28 am (UTC)
That Thomas guy seems terrible
loveandmosh 6th-Feb-2014 06:30 am (UTC)
Jamie and Thomas are both annoying as all hell.

Jenny's awesome. Arielle is chill, but barely visible. Cory is a douche but arguable one of the more entertaining people, pre-ex arrival.

I haven't watched tonight's episode, but I will NOT be surprised if I end up liking a lot of them more than the existing people.
imabadkid 6th-Feb-2014 06:48 pm (UTC)
Thomas is cute tbh but Jamie needs to go.
loveandmosh 6th-Feb-2014 08:15 pm (UTC)
I absolutely prefer him over her, but he's still really annoying to me just by association. I can't believe how insecure and clingy Jamie is over that relationship when they've been together for two seconds.
