The drama between the girls persists as Trisha takes time off from her boyfriend and starts insulting Parisa.
Down under at The Real World house, Trisha is on the phone with her boyfriend, Jarod, bickering about their lack of communication. Trisha is fed up with Jarod "not being himself," so she tells him she wants to take a break and hangs up on him. Trisha decides that this is her time to let loose and have fun, so she can't have a boyfriend holding her back!
The next day, Trisha doesn't waste any time getting back on her feet after breaking things off with her man. She calls up Alex, a cute Aussie she met at a club, and asks him to come over. While Trisha and Alex cuddle up, Cohutta and Isaac discuss Trisha's drastic, overnight transformation. They both disapprove of her boy-hopping behavior and think she is just jerking her boyfriend along while she gets to do whatever she wants.
In another room, Shauvon and Trisha talk about their love lives, and Shauvon claims that, despite macking on Isaac, she wants to spend her time in Sydney dating the locals. She can kiss an American anytime, but she won't always have access to cute Aussie boys! However, when she picks up the phone to ask out a hottie she met at the bar, Shauvon's nerves take over. Apparently, she has reservations about getting too involved with anyone because of her rocky past relationships, so Trisha coaches her and helps her set up a date.
The next night, Trisha and Shauvon decide to go on a double date and try to convince Parisa to join them. Parisa refuses, claiming she doesn't want to be the "fifth wheel," so the whole Real World gang decides to go out together ? but not before having a few pre-dinner drinks at home! Parisa downs two glasses of wine and gets completely plastered, which leads Trisha to complain to Shauvon about how much she dislikes Parisa. Shauvon defends her roomie, but Trisha says she doesn't see herself ever getting along with Parisa.
At dinner, Trisha and Alex casually flirt while the rest of the Real Worlders get to know some new friends. When it's time to leave, they notice that Parisa, being the lightweight that she is, has passed out at the dinner table! Luckily, Dunbar is nice enough to pick her up and carry her all the way home. What a gentleman. Too bad he only seems to have eyes for KellyAnne!
Back at The Real World house, Shauvon and her Aussie boy, Ky, steal some alone time in her bedroom, causing Isaac to lament to Cohutta about how he wishes he had never hooked up with someone who sleeps in the room right next to his! After Shauvon says goodnight to Ky, she regrets letting things go so far on their first date. She tells Parisa that she feels guilty and admits it's hard for her to be independent after being in a committed long-term relationship.
Meanwhile, Trisha vents to Cohutta about her love live. But instead of reinforcing her newfound freedom, Cohutta helps Trisha realize that she needs to slow down and think about what she's doing before she goes any further with the Alex.
Taking Cohutta's advice, Trisha sits down and writes Jarod an email confessing everything that happened with Alex in hopes that her truthfulness will turn things around for them. As she waits impatiently for his response, Parisa voices her frustration about Trisha hogging the computer. KellyAnne tries to keep things civil between them but it's too late; Trisha gets so riled up that she begins insulting Parisa. But Parisa bites her tongue and goes for a walk with Shauvon, telling her that she is done trying to make nice with someone as "self-centered" and "toxic" as Trisha.
At the same time, Trisha vents to Isaac and Cohutta, but the guys don't agree with the way she acted and tell her straight up that she was aiming below the belt. When Trisha asks Isaac if he likes her as a person, he responds, "I don't know yet." Looks like things are really heating up in The Real World house! Will Trisha and Parisa be able to work through their issues or will they both be stuck living with someone they totally can't stand?
