Tonight on “Real World: Ex-Plosion,” the guillotine will finally drop when five of the housemates’ exes move in. Drama is sure to follow, as some of the tenants have found new love in San Francisco, and the “Ex-Plosion” cast will be forced to face their former flames and explain themselves.

Before the “Ex-Plosion” cast gets the rude awakening you’ve been waiting for, here’s a look at eight alumni who found themselves stuck in love triangles.
