Wes, You Ignorant Slut
In a hurry? Read the recaplet for a nutshell description!

I can't believe they're still using that cheesy intro for this show. Hasn't everyone acknowledged by now that we only watch to see stupid people make drunken fools of themselves?

It's evening, and Johanna and Leo are strolling down an Austin street. He loses several points for wearing a fugly striped knit hat, but he gains some points for having shaved. Boy is definitely hotter than any of the guys in the house are. Jo voices-over that things are going slowly with Leo, and that she just wants to see where it goes. At one point, she's kind of leaning up against Leo as they walk. But then we're in a different shot, and as Leo tries to hold her hand, she squirms away as if...well, as if it were Wes trying to hold her hand. That's how squicked-out she seems. She voices-over that she "doesn't like holding people's hands who [she doesn't] know." Because this is apparently not the same Leo she allowed to do a body shot off of her, and with whom she made out. This new Leo is a total stranger. Leo tries again to hold her hand, and she tells him she really just wants to walk arm in arm. She interviews, "I just wanna have a good time. I don't wanna hold anyone's hand." Because holding hands is such a buzz-kill. At the door of the loft, Leo gives her a kiss on the cheek. She tells him she'll call, and thanks him for dinner.

Inside the loft, Jo inspects the fish tank and complains that one of the fish is dying. Rachel is actually preparing for their job (I know!) by using one of their cameras to tape Jo complaining about the dying fish. While The Real World crew films her. It's all very meta. Jo walks up behind Rachel and makes a fishy slurpy sound. Rachel tells her to be glad there's no mic on the camera, perhaps forgetting about all the other mics around them. Rachel presses Jo for a report on the date, and Jo tells her that "there's much more friend chemistry right now than 'I want to jump your bones' chemistry." Rachel analyzes the relationship thus: "So, there's potential, but right now it's practice." "Practice"? Is that really what she said? Whatever she said, it makes perfect sense to Jo, who agrees instantly. And then complains about Leo trying to hold her hand. Lacey has walked up by this point, and she wonders (along with the rest of us sane people) why Johanna was willing to make out with him but wouldn't hold his hand. Jo is quick to point out that she only made out with him while drunk, and Lacey is just as quick to call bullshit on that excuse. But Rachel agrees that holding hands is more intimate than making out in a bar: "I've kissed a lot more guys than I've ever held their hands."
