This episode primarily focused on Kelly Anne (Sydney) and Shauvon (Sydney). The group gets news that they will be visiting Cairins, Australia, which is where the Great Barrier Reef lies. Shauvon returns home, calls David, and tells him. David is clearly upset that she would even think about going on vacation while the two were at this stage in their lives. Eventually, Shauvon musters the courage up to say that she will not be going with the roommates to Cairins and she will indeed be leaving the house. Shauvon has left the Real World.
The rest of the roommates go on the trip to Cairins. The episode is really about Kelly Anne. Kelly Anne is trying to get over Sutton, her boyfriend back home, but she's only finally starting to realize that. She has Cohutta (Sydney) here in Sydney, but the relationship with Cohutta is still very unclear to Kelly Anne.
The group does any number of things while in Cairins, from lying out in boats, snorkeling in the reef, going to the beach, bungee jumping. Most prominently, Kelly Anne gets jealous when Cohutta starts talking to girls. Kelly Anne not wanting to be outdone, goes and finds a boy at a bar. Except, Parisa (Sydney) cuts in while Kelly Anne is dancing with a boy and this infuriates Kelly Anne.
Kelly Anne and Trisha (Sydney) break off to talk crap about Parisa and call her an "undercover slut." The two eventually are able to reconcile with Kelly Anne apologizing for her behavior. The roommates return home, and Kelly Anne eventually warms up to Cohutta. They decide that Kelly Anne needs a male presence in her life, a fatherly figure, and she seems to be okay with letting go of Sutton.
Most importantly, next week, Ashli (Sydney) comes into town. What's the first thing she does? Rips down all of Shauvon's pictures.
