They cry. They yell. They treat their doting parents like shit. And they almost always receive a luxury car, which never seems to make them as happy as you'd expect.
But in an episode featuring Makahla Ross, a cute blonde girl from Columbus, Ohio, it was the mom who grossed me out...the most.
During part of a pre-party professional photoshoot, (yeah there's one in practically every episode) Ross donned booty shorts, a cowboy hat, a long-sleeved, button-down blouse and a partially visible red bra. Mom, however, didn't think she was showing enough skin. Ross disagreed.
Ross: [Pouted then whined] "I don't want my shirt open."
Mom: "Just while you're sitting there can you undo it?"
Ross: [Whined some more] "No, I don't want it open."
Mom: [Pissed off glare].
Ross: [Explains itself](Possibly the only time it's appropriate to pretend to give your mom the finger*. Maybe not.)
Eventually she did decide to show her bra, but due to editing we didn't get to see what changed her mind.Racal Flats to personally hand Ross the keys to her new car, which turned out to be a... fricking Hummer!!!
Yeah it was the smallest kind of Hummer (H3 model), but are people really still buying these gas guzzlers?!?!
That's even worse than trying to force your underage daughter to act like Britney Spears, circa 1999!
You can watch parts of this episode at MTV.com. I extracted the stills from the second, third and fourth clip.
I know it's going through all that "cease and desist" stuff, but RedLasso needs to add MTV to its raw feed.
* Makahla did not actually give her mom the finger.
