On this week’s episode, we meet two guys, Russ and Ariel who have been roommates for about a year. Russ moved in with Ariel after getting a divorce. I think the fact that he drinks coffee straight from a coffee pot is reason enough to divorce him. I missed Ariel’s actual job but it apparently takes place in a nightclub. Russ is going to try to quit coffee and cigarettes during the experiment. Oh, that should be pleasant for Ariel. These two guys are really the first to be nervous being naked in front of each other. They each go to their own room to avoid seeing eat other naked.
After a night of no sleep, they managed to forage through the trash for covering. Ariel takes a red robe and Russ takes pants. Neither one of them can tolerate MREs they are given to eat. Russ is puking and he thinks it is from withdrawals. Day two, they take two phones. Day 3 a mattress and pants for Ariel. Russ insists on having his cat on the mattress with him. Day four, Ariel gets a shirt, and Russ gets shoes.
Russ is pissed that Ariel still hasn’t picked his mattress. Ariel is going nuts dealing with an angry Russ going through withdrawals. He has not smoked in a week. Russ in not cleaning the litter box. There is nasty cat food all over the floor. The cat is also throwing up all over the house. There is an open can of cat food in the fridge.
On Day 9, Russ picks cigarettes. He is still pissed off. Ariel still refuses to choose a bed. Ariel actually took a hat over a mattress. Day 10, Ariel gets a mattress. Russ takes toothpaste.
Ariel’s nieces and nephews come for a visit. He is starting to think about settling down and having a family.
Russ and Ariel have been ignoring each other for days. Now they need to talk. They both apologize and get back on track with each other. Russ sells garbage art for a dollar. Ariel beat boxes for spare change. Not sure what they needed money for. This was the first pair to select the fridge as an item and Ariel’s female fridges stocked it for them.
Surprisingly, these two make it all the way to the last day. They are still friends. Russ managed to quit smoking. After six months, Russ had moved into his own place. Ariel is still single but looking.
