'Leave Her Alone, Ignore Her'
A fairly dull episode, despite Nia's myriad and serious neuroses getting a full and complete airing (thumb-sucking, control issues, manipulation for its own sake). The other female roommates should benefit from her arrival, if only because it reduces their screentime, but the only lady who makes any gains is Daisy.
What's going on here? I'll list the housemates from best to worst each week. First place gets 8 points, second place 7, and so on. Whoever has the most points at the end of the season is probably the most awesome person in the RW: Portland house. Yes, I'm counting Averey's dog, Daisy. No, I don't think this is a terribly scientific system.
And now, the first day of the rest of Nia's life...
Barks at Nia a lot. Dragged into the confessional by Nia, looks beleaguered.
Refers to having had sex with a dude as "not my thing; it's not for me," so it's still pretty hard to tell what went on there. Into Nia at first, but does seem to realize with due speed that he shouldn't go there with someone that volatile.
Good insight that Nia seems nice, but it's "day one." Uses the term "chocolate thunder" to describe Marlon and Nia potentially having sex, which is obnoxious.
Show-offy on bike ride; passive-aggressive to Jessica, and while I enjoy her annoyance, he's only making things worse. Wears ska suspenders out to the club.
Talks about moving out at age 15 and fistfighting with her crazy mother. Decides Nia is "going to be okay" in the house after Nia blows gold up her culo about her maturity and strength.
Weird and needlessly manipulative from the get. Claims a ghost stole her jeans. Shares a sexual-assault story that explains, to a degree, her need to control and influence things in the house…but does not make her daring Jordan to let her blow him, then insisting that all the roommates watch, any less inappropriate. Does point out that Jordan could just ignore Jessica instead of poking the crazy, and that "everyone in this house is waaaay too sensitive."
Disapproving of Nia at first, but bonds with her over their shared inability to get along with other "strong personalities" (read: "don't like it when their shit is called out as tactless try-harding"). Has hideous pajamas.
Whiny. Doesn't want to eat dinner with the rest of the house. Still not seeing that reacting the way she does to Jordan only encourages him to keep picking at her.
