About Episode

  1. D-REAL

    D-Real and the Turf Feinz give Jenks a new nickname, Whoa-J (derived from World of Jenks). Jenks likes this nickname much more than his old one, The Gentle Giant, which was given to him in elementary school because he was much taller than the other kids.

    D-Real gets a call from renowned choreographer, Flii Stylz (Usher, Chris Brown, J Lo) asking if he and the Turf Feinz will come to Los Angeles and meet him. The guys and Jenks fly out the next morning and Flii tells the Turfs that he saw their videos online and want to work with them. Afterwards they all go out to a dance club.

    The next morning on their drive to rehearse with Flii, D-Real tells Jenks that he has trouble accepting the peaceful vibe of the LA neighborhoods they're in. D-Real's gotten so used to Oakland's violence that it's easier for him to relate to death than to a smile. Then the Turf Feinz rehearse with Flii. They've never done choreography, which presents challenges, but Flii believes that they can learn.

    At the end of rehearsal, Flii informs the Turf Feinz that he's set up an interview for them at KIIS FM in LA. Jenks wonders how they will handle such big changes in their lives.

    CHAD

    In celebration of his graduation, Jenks takes Chad to the beach, which is his favorite place on earth.

    Chad and his parents visit Occupations, his new post-school work program, and discuss employment opportunities for Chad.

    They tour the Occupations' warehouse, which employs special-needs individuals for assembly-line type jobs. Chad is not interested and would rather work in a "real place."

    "I want to work with normal people. I don't want to be with people with disabilities. I just want to be me and pretend I'm normal and stuff." -Chad

    Chad later meets with a job counselor, Sean, who will coach him through interviews and assist him in finding suitable work.

    Chad goes on an interview and try-out at a grocery story, Price Chopper, but he has trouble focusing on the tasks he's given. Jenks worries that Chad doesn't push himself hard enough and gives up too easily.

    KAYLIN

    Jenks has been having a hard time keeping in touch with Kaylin over the last couple weeks. They meet up in Brooklyn where Jenks learns that she has been in unusual pain lately and has scheduled a doctor's appointment to get it checked out. She explains that when she made the appointment she wasn't thinking about him or MTV. Jenks talks about his struggle to find a balance between giving Kaylin her privacy while still making an authentic documentary about her.

    Later that night, Kaylin heads to the Emergency Room after her pain becomes unbearable. Jenks rushes over in a cab only to wait outside all night while Kaylin waits to be seen by a doctor.

    Upon being released with a clean bill of health, Kaylin speaks with her primary physician in San Francisco. The doctor explains that her pain may be signaling that her ovaries have begun producing eggs again. She may have regained the ability to have children, something she had thought was lost years ago when she first started treatment.
