Out in the wilderness and miles away from the bars and the comforts of the house in Denver, the roommates are in the midst of their Outward Bound training experience. And while Brooke may have thought she was finally warming up to the great outdoors, a new activity boomerangs her right back to her high-maintenance girly-girl roots on this episode of "The Real World: Denver."
Led by Outward Bound bosses and instructors Chris and Raleigh, the crew gets ready to scale down a cliff. While most make the slide without incident, surprisingly it's Tyrie that has an emotional moment at the bottom. Not surprisingly, Brooke decides to bow out of the activity, not wanting to try her luck against the rocky cliff.
The next morning, Chris asks Brooke and Alex to clean camp after breakfast, but Brooke opts to watch instead of getting her hands dirty. When Alex asks her to start scrubbing, she flies off the handle and complains to the boss about his behavior. When Chris and Raleigh approach Alex, he makes it known that pairing him with Brooke during Outward Bound activities would result in his "worst case scenario."
Since Chris thinks the next bonding experience might be hard on her recovery from mono, Colie can only wave goodbye to the rest of the happy campers as they hike off on an overnight excursion. But things aren't so bad for Colie, as she's "forced" to stay behind at the main camp with Adam, an Outward Bound outdoorsman that's grabbed her attention.
Because there aren't any rest rooms out in the mountains, Raleigh decides it's time to dispense a lesson in necessity and teaches her interns how to take care of personal business. And, as you may not know this, there's a right way to pop a squat in the wilderness and a wrong way. Note that the right way involves digging a hole for your deposit into the one-with-the-earth bank.
After a five-hour walk carrying a 40 lb. pack, Brooke is ready for a break. When she strips off her pants to get more comfortable, Chris sends up a red flag, asking her to sport more than just booty shorts at the remote campsite. Seeking some feminine freshness later that night, Chris catches Brooke with her pants down again as she attempts to wipe herself ... in the middle of camp. While the Southern Belle thinks her boss is too sensitive, Chris argues that she's stepped over a line and has acted unprofessionally.
Once the trip is over, Brooke couldn't be more thrilled to be back in Denver. In a tearful heart-to-heart, Alex tries to put her in her place, encouraging her to abandon her stubbornness and move beyond the Brooke bubble.
