I live in Portland

and I think I'd be

the ideal candidate

to be on the

next season of

the Real World.

Hi, my name is

Katrina Collins

I live in Portland

and I think I'd be

the ideal candidate

to be on the

next season of

the Real World

I've been watching

the show

ever since I was a kid.

And its always felt

like I'm watching

an exact replica

of my own life.

Sort of like a

dramatic reenactment

except instead of actors

playing the role of

famous people

is real people

playing the role of me.

I work at a dog shelter,

taking care of dogs

and I have a

boyfriend named Brian

who I've been dating

for five years

and I'm totally

crazy about.


You know, I just don't

understand what they

need this information for.

And besides,

don't you think

they could call around

and just ask the stores

how many different

brands of milk they carry?

Its like the fact that

somebody would decide

"Hey, we need to

hire somebody

to drive all

around town

to count milk jugs

for us," pretty much

explains how screwed up

the world is.

I guess its better

than that stupid

office job they had

me doing last month.

All I did there

was make copies

for twenty hours straight.

And the machine broke

down every ten minutes.

That's why my hands

still smell like

that ink loner.

Hey, thanks again

for letting me

use the car.

- Oh, you're welcome Eli.

- So I don't think

it will take

as long tomorrow.

- I hope not Eli.

- Um, I'll be by

about 9

if you wanna come.

- Well, I'll see how


- Alright.

Alright, well thanks

for today.

- My pleasure.

Hey, you want to

come in the house?

I want to show you

a new setup I got

for the soap films

I discovered

that the best

light source

for the soap films

is the sun.

And this room

has the best light

in the house


Come over here

You put that into there.

And then you go

over there.

And you edit it.

- And the camera here...

sends the image

through these cables

over there.

Really cool.

I hope you don't

plan on using

the sink anytime soon.

- Do you want to

turn that light oh'?

- Sure

- Look at that.

- Whoa

All this from reflections

of a bubble...

- That's right

- You have one unheard


First message sent

today at 1:

- A free DVR

- If you don't know

what a DVR is

press 1 on your phone

and a rep will tell

you all about it.

Its awesome technology

that will change the

way you watch TV.

Basically, if you

still have a

cable provider-.

- Breaking hearts...

Breaking Hearts

someone has to

be sent home.

Hi girls

We've had a long journey

but unfortunately

I only have

two roses left.


We've had some

really good times

like our trip on

the yacht.

Or our long walks

on the candle-lit beach

So this one is easy,

you get a rose...


you know how special

you are to me

and I want to keep

the specialness

going for as long

as it can.

And each day,

I feel that

we get connected

stronger and stronger

So this last rose...

This last rose is

for you Megan

- I just can't believe this

I thought what

we had was real

I felt it

And I thought

he felt it, too.

I was ready to

spend the rest of

my life with him.

I just don't understand.

- Stay tuned for scenes

from next week's

episode of...

"The Single Guy. "

- Okay, so...

Check this out-

I've figured out

how to eat out

for every meal

of the day

for less than

six bucks total.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Okay, so...

For breakfast,

all you really need

is cofiee, right?

So you just...

...head over to stumptown.
