Were there some entertaining moments on Thursday night’s new episode of “The Real World: Go Big or Go Home“? Sure, mostly through watching a chaotic trip to the Grand Canyon, or just watching the inane antics of some of these people. This may end up being the most unlikable cast in some ways out of many we’ve seen in some time; or, you could call them “conflicted.”
We still like Chris. We know that he did a snakey thing in leaking some of Jenna’s offensive comments to the world, but at the same time, she really should not have said them, and largely put herself in that situation. Also, it’s hard not to root for Chris after he took a stand against a history of abuse and pain in his church in front of not only a crowd, but also television cameras. There’ll be plenty who are not happy with what he did, but there will certainly be many who did and view him as a hero because of it.
At the end of this, Chris got a chance to celebrate by going out, and of course Jenna didn’t really feel like it was an occasion worthy of that at all. Still, everyone was at least supportive on the outside for him as he enjoyed his moment, and the episode ended with something that we really do not often see on this show: No cliffhanger ending or fight at the end.
Really, much of the Grand Canyon trip and the other early-show shenanigans fade into the background thanks to the powerful moment at the end, which probably says a little bit about it when it comes to it being emotional, and also the lifeless nature of some of the show’s pre-planned activities. Episode Grade: B (mostly for the end).
