MTV’s Real World’s 10 Most Annoying Couples
MTV’s reality show The Real World, now simply called Real World, blew the lid wide open on the reality TV phenomenon we all know now. Starting back in the early ’90s the show has had over 30 seasons and spawned its own spin-off shows which are just as intriguing as the show itself. Through it all, fans have been introduced to a wide array of people all forced to live and sometimes work together for a few months. Although this spawns some major drama as personalities clash, it can almost always be also guaranteed that each season will see a couple formed in the house. This usually changes the other housemates’ as well as the audience’s views on the people involved pretty drastically and, while some couples have been nothing but adorable, others have been nothing but annoying. With so many seasons, and so many romances, these 10 couples feature mainly in the most recent seasons.
10. Jay Gotti and Jenna Compono – Ex-Plosion
Real World: Ex-Plosion was the 29th season of the series and as such, MTV decided to shake it up by adding a big twist. Unlike the other seasons where loved ones and friends would just come to visit, Ex-Plosion had the castmates exes move in during episode five, leading to a packed house and even more drama and even more opportunities for hook-ups. With a lot of possible combinations, one of the most annoying couples to watch was original housemate Jay Gotti and his ex-girlfriend Jenna Compono. Right away it was clear that Jenna was way out of Jay’s league and, while relationships are not all about looks, the strangeness of the couple was made worse by the revelation that Jay has a hard time staying faithful to Jenna. It was unbelievably annoying to watch Jenna worry about her relationship with Jay when all she needed to do was give her head a shake and realize she deserves a lot better!
9. Emily Schromm and Ty Ruff – D.C.
Emily Schromm and Ty Ruff from the cast of The Real World: D.C. both had individual issues that unfortunately got swept up in their relationship after the two almost immediately began a physical relationship after meeting in the house. Ruff’s uncontrollable and outrageous anger issues have cemented him as one of the most annoying cast members to appear on the show, and his fling with Emily dragged her into the category as well. Ty thought they were forming something real, meanwhile Emily said she was not emotionally attracted to him and it was merely physical which led to the fling ending and the remainder of the season being plagued with tension between the two. It became exhausting for the audience watching these two spiral out of control and Ty’s drinking only fueling the fire and even leading to scary physical altercations.
