This week's eliminations highlighted in bold

I will be honest the last couple days since the show have been a complete rollercoaster.
I wanted to take some time after watching the episode to really take the whole experience in. Am i proud of what i did. NO. Am i ashamed of how it all turned out YES.
Everyone by now knows me and my attitude. Do i get angry, YEA ,do i get upset OFTEN.... Do i get violent ,,,,,, Now before i answer that one just look at my track record. I have been on countless challenges for MTV, i have been on other shows for VH1 and in all that time i have never put my hands on anyone in a act of violence.
Everyone has noticed in the clips that the guys are saying that Veronica said something that she shouldn't of and she took it too far. Everyone wants to know what she said that set me off. And there is a part of me that just wants to put it out there, and there is a part of me that is still not ready to talk about it publicly. All i will say is there are certain things that you can never say to a women. There are certain traumatic experiences that scar people for life and no women wants to relive of be reminded of. And for anyone to bring them up with the intent to hurt someone is totally uncalled for. THAT is the reason i was crying in Evans arms and with all the guys. Was i upset that i hit her...Yes... But i was more hurt and betrayed that she would bring that up. Like i said no women wants to be reminded of that happening to them. And veronica knew what she was doing. I can't believe she was surprised when the team had my back. Little miss veronica couldn't hide her spots this time.... Well she didn't have anyone to hide behind.
Everyone has by now seen the clip of us on youtube.
If you notice she puts her hands on me first. She actually pushes me in the face and then trys to through her cup of romin noodles on me. And yes that water was boiling hot. Hell she even says "YES I WANT YOU TO HIT ME" and even after she pushed me and threw that shit on me i didn't hit her. It was only after what she said, and how deep it cut that i lost it.
I just want to thank Wes for breaking us up. I wish it would of been done sooner and things wouldn't of happened that way, but i can not change the past. But I love him for jumping in. I respect him not only as a competitor but as a friend. And i know Wes gets a bad rep for the things that he does. But he is just playing the game. After all it is only a game. For every move kenny and Evan made wes would counter in his own unique way. And you can't hate his game play if it works.
I wish i could tell all of you that i am sorry, but honestly i am not.... I don't condone violence or my behavior but i will not apologize for finally kicking the crap out of the girl who bullied everyone on the playground. She had it coming.

The TV Paige
"The Ruins" was more hostile than most Challenges, says Katie. "Nobody got along. Usually I'll fight with people, but I'll have my core group of friends." Not this time. "Anybody I've ever had a fight with happened to be on my team," she says. "All of the older cast members, we're sick of each other."
It's jarring to readjust back to normal life in Chicago, she says. "When I came back this time, I had to lock myself into my room. I was just acting like a psycho. If the pizza guy forgot my ranch, I'd be like, 'What's your problem?'
"This Challenge was my toughest one, the hardest emotionally," says Katie. "I don't cry on these shows. But on this one, I got very close. My eyes may have watered a little bit. I would love to punch some people in the face, but you can't do that. Who does that anyway?"

The judge in the Audrina Patridge case just said the evidence was "quite disturbing" and granted a 3-year restraining order against her alleged stalker.Judge Sees It Audrina's Way | TMZ.com
The judge said, "It's unfortunate that people who pursue careers in the public have to deal with these people," referring to Zachary Loring.
Audrina read one of the creepy poems Loring sent to her on the stand. The poem was titled "Damzel."
oh, and here's his myspace. maybe a little time in the limelight will give him a taste of his own medicine. the PR, I'm sure, are giving him just that.
Audrina Patridge: Keep Him Away, Permanently! | TMZ.com
Audrina Patridge just showed up in L.A. court today to ask a judge for a permanent restraining order against her alleged stalker -- Zachary Loring.
Patridge won a temporary restraining order earlier this month, but it's about to expire. We're in court ... so stay tuned.
ok, the video player is fucked, for some reason. sorry about that. hopefully it will be fixed by tomorrow. but here's the link to the 2nd episode, which i was having trouble finding.
Sunday, October 04, 2009
I feel sorry for Tonya, she's gone from a crazy, pretty, winning party girl to a sad, broken down, pathetic woman. I think what happened on Inferno 2 with Rachel and Veronica really did a # on her, psychologically. She seems a lot more fragile than she used to be. You can even tell by the way she's freaking out here (if you notice, Veronica's sitting on the couch right next to them).
if you look at the season trailer, she slaps Veronica.
Shavon has gained a shitload of weight since her original season (RW Sydney). This was her then. (on the right)
This is her now, on The Ruins (she's the 1 in front, on the far right, all the way at the end)
she's gained like 40 pounds, no joke. She's not fat, but 5 more pounds and she will be.
If you look at The Ruins tailer, Evan and Veronica hook up. This clip from Challenge Dailies (literally, updated daily) shows them flirting. Anyone notice a pattern here? Evan has a thing for the Mean Girls. He's had the chance to hook up with sooo many of the female castmembers, but he has no use for them. He doesn't seem to have much use for the female castmembers, period, except for Coral (his partner on Fresh Meat), Rachel and Veronica. Those are the only 3 he seems to find attractive, and those are the only 3 he's ever seemingly showed respect for.
More with Evan Starkman of The Duel 2 - TV Casualty
This is the second of 2 interviews with Evan Starkman via TV Casualty (Here's the 1st one, Pre-Ruins), which was conducted in June, after filming of The Ruins had just wrapped up.
How are you?
I’m all right. I’m doing all right.
Well, you have $100,000, so that must be nice.
Yeah. I have half of it so far, but it feels pretty good.
Why do you only have half of it?
I don’t know; some bizarre payment where they send the first half when the first episode airs and the second half after the finale. But apparently the mail hasn’t gotten here yet.
What are you planning to do with your winnings?
Just be a stay-at-home dad. No, I really don’t know. I’ve been thinking about it. I’ve put some money into a clothing company Kenny and I are starting called Suck Yeah clothing and that’s it. I’m looking for good ideas.
You already have another clothing company, Branch Out Clothing. How is Suck Yeah different?
Branch Out Clothing is a not-for-profit clothing company. We actually just signed a great deal with Plan Canada to produce shirts for them to support their “Because I’m a Girl” campaign. Branch Out is now partnered with them and the only shirts we make support “Because I’m a Girl.” It’s an incredible mission to raise the status of women worldwide and basically ensure that young girls in most of the third world go to high school. If they go to high school then they’re recognized as people more, so it’s a good opportunity to have. But Suck Yeah is a fun way to have a bromance with Kenny. It’s just for-profit.
You’re having a bromance… for money?
Well, no, Kenny and I are great friends and we wanted to do something together. We were joking one day about the status of T-shirts in the world for men, which include jewels and skulls and horses with skulls for heads and all kinds of angry things. We felt that was sorta lame, so we wanted to make what T-shirts should be: just tacky, old T-shirts.
Tell me about the final challenge in the Duel, where you had to swim and bike and do a bunch of mini-challenges.
The one thing is that they really don’t do a good job of showing was how far that race was. It was about 14 miles. It kinda looks like we jump from point to point, but just the section of walking uphill with bikes – we couldn’t ride uphill because it was too steep. Brad and I walked with our bikes for four-and-a-half hours. We were about 30 feet apart and every so often I’d be like, “You wanna take a break?” And he’d be like, “OK, but you stand right there and I’ll stand right here!” When I was carrying the ring with Britney, we walked together for about two-and-a-half hours. It’s quite a long process. I’ve received a lot of mail concerning my reading comprehension [Evan misread one set of instructions and ended up climbing a pole while carrying a bicycle on his back]. I haven’t really come up with anything clever to say about that other than to say I’m an idiot. I really am.
Well, it all worked out.
All in all, it did work out. I would say it was one of the best days of my life. I was an athlete growing up and I’ve never pushed my body like that. It was incredibly difficult.
How long were you racing that day?
We started at six in the morning and I finished – well, Brad and I finished – around 5:30 p.m. They actually had to pick Mark and Aneesa up on four-wheelers. The producers were like, “The sun’s going down and we really need to finish this shot.” The magic of television!
Why does Aneesa keep going on challenges without doing any training beforehand?
I ask that about a lot of the women who come on the show. Ultimately, just so you know, her training is at a strip club. That’s where she works. I don’t know. For me, I have a lot of fun on these shows, and they are kind of silly and chintzy, but I understand that when I am invited on the show, I’m given the opportunity to compete for money. It’s a total blessing. And I have good odds! When I showed up in New Zealand, there were 13 guys, so I had a 1 in 13 chance; you’re not going to do better than that. So I try to get ready. By no means am I Superman, but I try to prepare, and some people just miss the memo on that. I don’t know what they’re expecting, but it’s pretty funny to watch some people come and realize, “Oh, you just… don’t care about the money. At all.” Which is unbelievable, especially if you’re a stripper. It’s not like, oh, you’re rolling in cash. She’s been paying her bills in singles for a long time!
Was Brad pissed that you beat him by, what, half a second?
Yes. Brad is a great guy and he’s done a lot of these shows and never won. I think he’s on eight or nine. He was pretty upset. It was a pretty unbelievable sequence of events; I really don’t know what went wrong. I feel bad. Not that bad, because I’m rich, but I definitely feel bad.
What was the deal with him and Tori breaking up?
It was very bizarre the last few weeks. Another thing they never really highlight on the show is the mental anguish that we’re all in. I said it a thousand times, but you’re not allowed to have an iPod, there’s no stereo, there’s no television. If you have a book, they take your book away. Prisoners are given books and the Internet and we don’t have any distractions. And then you’re in a house you can’t leave. You can’t be like, “Hey, we want to go out!” You can’t even go for a jog. It’s beyond prison. So Tori just reached this wall where she crumbled mentally, made Brad’s life sort of terrible and when she lost to Aneesa, we’re all sort of like, “Wow, that’s really pathetic. How did you lose to Aneesa?” She gave Brad this note that she had a dream where she lost but then Brad went on to win and… [laughs] I don’t know. I saw Brad recently; Tori wasn’t there, thank God. They’re getting married in April of next year and they’re happy and it’s all good.
A big aspect to the show this season was the social hierarchy, with everyone picking their friends until only one person is left.
Yeah, the whole popularity contest.
You were pretty much at the top the whole time, but you were still targeted a lot.
Yeah. I’m used to, I guess, getting a bit of a free ride on these shows. I don’t know if it’s deserved or not. I guess some of the people who don’t prepare for the challenges look at me – I mean, not only do I train hard, but I put all my T-shirts in the dryer twice before I go, so I look like a really big guy around the house because the shirts are so tight. I don’t know, I’m not used to getting called out as much as I did, which made the experience a lot more difficult. But ultimately, I think it helped me because I was more prepared for the final, mentally. Once you go into the duel enough times, you look at your competition and you’re like, “Well, if I can’t beat this guy, I probably shouldn’t be here.” Ultimately, it sucks going in and I went against a lot of good players, but if I can’t beat Davis, just go home, Evan. But I don’t know why people came after me.
Well, it was probably because you were taking charge of the game; obviously the people on the bottom were trying to change that.
You know what it is? I’m a pretty vocal guy. A lot of the veterans who came on the show are sort of quiet, mature people, I guess you would call them. I definitely have a target on my back and I don’t make any mistakes about how I feel about certain things. I always look at these shows as three phases. Despite there being different rules and there being different roads to the final, there’s always been a pattern, and it goes like this: the first few weeks are probably the most nerve-wracking because you’re learning what the game is and the house is full of new people who have never done the challenges. So the hierarchy doesn’t matter to them and they feel like, “Well, I’m going home anyway because people are going to throw me under the bus, so I’m just going to go after the top dogs or go after Evan because why not? I’m going home anyway.” You don’t know what they’re thinking, you don’t have alliances with them because they’re new and you’re just sorta like, “Yeah, get out of here.” The middle weeks are pretty mellow because everyone’s falling into pretty strong alliances and they get the game and it’s simple, the way the game flows. You know if you’re going in and everyone agrees, for some reason, on the way of things. And then at the end, the way I try and do it, I just hope that I’ve fooled people long enough that I can pull the rug out from underneath them and it’s too late for them to do anything about it. That’s sort of the plan. It just happened to work out on this one.
On the first episode, Diem seemed like a lost little puppy who didn’t now what she wanted. Did she experience any personal growth that you saw, or is she still as lost as she ever was?
Yeeeah… uh… It’s weird. Maybe it’s because I haven’t looked in the mirror long enough, but it seems that the longer people do these shows, it’s a slippery slope. Some people just slowly and surely deteriorate. When we first met Diem, she was Little Miss America. She was a teen idol and doing all these great things. She’s still a total sweetheart but a lot more wine is involved. A lot of red wine and paranoia. Diem’s true colours are sort of out. She’s lost. I love Diem because in all the shows I’ve done with her, for some reason, she’s convinced that she should get some kind of free ride right to the end. Every time she’s called out to go into the duel, it’s a mega production. Somebody should give her an award. It’s like, [fake crying] “Oh my God! I can’t believe it!” It’s like, there’s only four girls left! How did you not think you were going to get called out? Every time I was her partner, she was like, “You know, I think I’m really over my fear of heights,” and then as soon as we get up there, she’s screaming and crying. Some of these kids are buying mirrors that, when you look into them, you’re seeing a different person than the rest of the world sees. I would like to know where they’re buying these mirrors. We should all have them, actually. You look great in them, apparently.
So the last time we talked, you were just about to go on another challenge. Can you tell me anything about it?
I can’t tell you a thing about it. [He later tells me stuff about it anyway, but, like I said, I can't reveal any of it.] When did we last talk? Oh, you know what’s really funny? The last article you wrote, I said something about Robin and her child.
Oh, yeah. Somehow her or her fiancé came across that article and I got some pretty heavy mail. I should forward you the email. She’s pretty upset.
Was it not true?
Well, it’s just sort of mean-spirited. I say things – I hope you put this – I say a lot of things that are jokes. In writing, I look bad. It’s like the opposite of my résumé, where I look good on paper but if you actually knew what I did, you’d never hire me. Sometimes in writing, I come across as… a mean guy. Overly arrogant, cocky guy. I really don’t feel like that. I mean, in The Duel 2, how much footage was there of me reading Eat Pray Love? A lot. I’m fully, fully a lesbian. No, I’m trying to be really positive and Robin is due, I think, right now. Having the baby or had the baby. It’s really hard for me to believe that she’s not still doing Percocet, but I wish her the best, I really do.
I came across 2 interviews with Evan Starkman via TV Casualty. The 1st one (this one) was conducted 2 weeks before he left for Thailand to film the latest challenge - The Ruins. He mentions Robin, apparently she was 3 months pregnant by the time she showed up for The Duel 2.Evan Starkman from The Duel II - TV Casualty
I interviewed you last year before The Gauntlet III.
Yes, I remember. We had a charming conversation. And then I read your article and I was pissed off.
Yeah, I was pretty harsh on you.
But after The Gauntlet III, I didn’t like you anymore.
You turned into this fratty-bo-latty, “all women are useless” guy.
No, no, no! That was a producer’s cut. They needed a villain. If you asked the girls who were there at the end what I did for them, I protected them to the end of the earth.
So you’re saying you were a victim of editing?
I’m not crying anything. I’ll stand by the statements as this: the few girls I wanted to send home, like Katie and Robin, are complete wastes of skin and they needed to go. I will stand by that.
Well, I’m willing to keep an open mind about The Duel II.
It’s a weird thing with these shows. Somehow, we keep going back; we know how it goes down. And I’m not crying editing, but you know that if production can take the high road or the low road, they’re taking the low road. And instead of keeping that in mind, you take it to the next level! Every one of my interviews, I go in there saying, “Don’t say anything mean; be nice.” And then I come out, realizing I did a diary entry on TV. An angry, cold, bitter diary entry that’s going to be posted everywhere.
It has to be a pretty thin line, because it is fun to see you talk [crap] about people, to a certain extent.
It was a combination of getting caught up in the overall vibe of our team and... yeah. I don’t know. It definitely wasn’t as bad as Johnny and Kenny on The Island. When I was in New Zealand for The Duel, I was sitting with a producer and he said, “You know why I love you? You’re an [butthole] across the board. I don’t think you’re mean because you make fun of everybody. No one gets a pass with you. Some people come in and pick on the same people and I think they’re mean-spirited, but you pick on everyone, even your friends.” I was like, “Eh, all right.”
Well… I guess that’s better.
It’s all in good fun. It’s like when that guy brings a camera to the party and everyone starts acting a little funnier and you’re like, “Why are you doing that?” Kids with their Facebook profiles, like, why did you put up pictures of you smoking a joint? And they don’t really think about.
But even with the guy at the party, or photos on Facebook, there’s still an idea that not that many people will see it. But with this show, they know that millions of people are going to see them get drunk and fight; you’d think they would try harder not to do that.
Someone should write a paper on this, because really, you would think that. On The Real World, fine, they’re not used to the repercussions.
But the people on the challenges have been doing it for years!
For years. But then, I just did six weeks of Spring Break with MTVU, and we’ll have a giant wheel on a stage in front of 2,000 kids, and on the wheel it will say, “Get Naked,” “Have a Threesome,” gross stuff! And we’ll be like, “Who wants to spin the wheel?” and we literally have to throw people off the stage. We’ll have ten or 15 girls, naked, on a stage in front of flashing cameras, and we’re not even giving anything away! It’s like, “Who wants to spin the wheel?” So with the challenges, we’re just those kids.
But millions of people are watching it!
I don’t understand it. I pain over it. We’ve all done this ten times, we know what happens when you act like a fool, so why do you do it? I guess that’s why we get invited back.
Maybe they act that way to ensure they’ll be invited back.
I don’t know. I have theories; I definitely have theories. It depends how deep you want to go. I mean, listen, this whole fame game is just crazy.
You seem to have been enjoying your increased level of fame a lot more in the last year.
Yeah, things are picking up, and The Duel II should be a big show. The bottom line is this: I never really wanted to be in entertainment. I never had TV aspirations. I just lucked into it, like I won the lottery, and I’m having so much fun doing it. I can’t imagine doing anything else. I don’t know what people are complaining about when they complain about being famous. The only thing I can complain about is that when you’re a real celebrity, you can afford to tell people to [fudge] off, but I don’t really have that luxury.
Who do you want to tell to [fudge] off?
Oh, you know, when you’re out until five in the morning and have to catch a 6:30 a.m. flight and you’re sitting in coach and kids are getting annoying with you. But no, it’s the best job in the world. I’ve met so many cool people and I’ve done so many cool things; I really wouldn’t change a thing.
Like spinning the Threesome Wheel?
Dreams can come true.
So how is The Duel II different from The Gauntlet III?
Well, The Gauntlet III was a team game, while The Duel is the most intense challenge format because it’s every man for himself. There’s no alliances, there’s no collusion. There’s just you in the cruel, reality world, trying to screw over some kids for some cash. It was definitely harder because you’re never really safe – there’s only one winner, and then everyone is vulnerable to go into the duel. I went to a lot of duels, which sucked. All my good friends weren’t there. But New Zealand’s an incredible country. The challenges we got to do were the coolest ever. That’s what New Zealand’s about – all they have over there are sheep and things to jump off of. That’s the entire culture.
So you did sheep and jumped off a lot of stuff?
Oh, I definitely wrangled up some sheep; that’s a fact. They’re hard to catch, that’s for sure. I would say, of all the show that I’ve done, this one will be the best. You couldn’t have scripted a better show, and this is unscripted.
How many challenges have you done now? Is this your fifth?
This is my fifth.
At what point do you decide that you don’t want to do challenges anymore? Or are you going to be like Beth, and keep doing it long after it stopped being acceptable?
Actually, I’m leaving for another challenge on April 25. I’m not supposed to say that, but I am. I think Beth’s coming, actually – I’m like, “What are you, 45?” But I don’t know, I’m very ready to take the next step and move away from this stuff, but at the same time… Listen, I’m 24 years old. I don’t have a care in the world and it’s free money. Imagine if someone called you and was like, “Hey, do you want to come on a free vacation to a wild time and we’ll pay you?” You’d be like, “Definitely.”
So you guys get paid whether or not you win the show?
I was always confused as to how these people could afford to take so much time off if they didn’t even win the show.
No, we definitely get paid. Like I said, I have so much fun doing it, I can’t imagine not going, but at the same time, it’s kind of like college. I told myself that I was going to go to college until I found something better to do. If I actually have something better to do, then I’ll leave. And with this show, I want something better to do; I’m trying to establish something better to do, but until I have something better to do, I’m going.
Kenny’s not on The Duel II, and you weren’t on The Island. Are the producers trying to break you two up?
I think that’s the gimmick! Kenny and I had actually filmed the pilot for a show that was getting a lot of momentum.
Your own reality show?
Yeah, kind of like a Bromance sort of deal. It seemed like, just as we were going to move beyond the show, MTV got real worried that we’d stop answering their phone calls for the challenge so they split us up. It really sucked. But Kenny and I are still the best of friends.
Why is CT back for The Duel II?
CT makes a great trailer, that’s why.
But isn’t he more of a liability for MTV at this point?
The rumour is that they can no longer insure him to come back. But he makes a great trailer. The first episode, they show in the trailer. CT really came through with that sucker punch on Adam. I’ll give CT credit, like, if he was smart enough to stick around a challenge instead of just punching people, he’d probably be a pretty rich guy. He’s really strong and mean; he’s got the right combination of strength and meanness to win. But he’s just an idiot. And the best part about that fight is that every time you go on a challenge, they confiscate your luggage and replace it, basically, with a hockey back full of trade-outs. Clothes that companies have paid for you to wear. For some reason, I don’t know who cleared this, every one of us had a big onesie, like a baby would wear. Obviously, the first night, we’re all like, “Let’s put on the fuzzy onesies!” So it’s us wearing baby blue, fuzzy onesies with duckies on them, and then this huge brawl breaks out. Adam’s getting his ass kicked while wearing a green onesie. People are breaking up the fight in these onesies. The next day, production rolled through and confiscated all of them, because it looked ridiculous. Who would have said it was OK to give those out?
How about Brooke? Has she gotten crazier, or has she defied expectation and worked some of her [crap] out?
I actually just saw Brooke on Friday and I love Brooke, for the simple reason that she knows that she’s completely out of her mind. She’s come to terms with it. We were filming the after show for the duel, and even then, she was rolling around the dressing room floor, on her back. I was like, “What are you doing?” And she’s like, “I’m trying to relax!” She’s completely out of her mind but she’s a sweetheart. I love her for it; I actually get along with her really well.
You seem to like a lot of people who revel in their own idiocy.
I think I like anyone who has come to terms with who they are. People who just say, “This is who I am; I’m just throwing it out there.”
But that also invites a kind of laziness, like those people feel like they don’t need to fix their bad qualities simply because they admit to having bad qualities.
Well, there are levels of idiocy. There are people who are idiots because they can’t help themselves and are just mean and don’t contribute anything to society. Brooke has come to terms with who she is and is working on it. She’ll probably be working on it forever, but listen, at the end of the day, who am I? I’m not a shrink. I can’t judge these people. It’s not like I keep in touch with her; I just wish her the best. I’ve never had a problem with her so I don’t want to say anything bad about her.
What about Robin?
Oh, this is a great story. So Robin shows up to the challenge, in full Robin Form. Crushing Xanax, Percocet, everything. Being hung upside down and punched in the stomach, and then she’s like, “Oh, by the way, I’m three months pregnant.”
It’s like, what are you doing here? Go home! So yeah, Robin is due.
The producers didn’t have a problem with her doing this?
I think she kept it on the DL until she was there.
They don’t have medical tests that the contestants go through beforehand that would catch this kind of thing?
No. I am with you; I think the show should implement a pregnancy/performance-enhancing drug test.
Or, at least, don’t let the pregnant people touch drugs or alcohol when they get on the challenge.
Robin is difficult to control.
So you and Robin have become great friends, is what you’re saying.
Oh, we’re close. Real close. She’s naming the baby Evan. Oh, you remember Derek, from The Island, how his girlfriend was pregnant? Guess what they named the kid?
I have no idea.
No, he didn’t.
I’m telling you.
That is terrible. That kid is going to hate him.
I love it. I was so happy.
So what else happens on The Duel II?
It’s great – there are a lot of old faces.
Who’s the oldest one this time?
Mark. He’s 41.
What is he still doing there?
He was on the first Road Rules ever. He actually used to host the challenges before TJ Lavin.
That has to be humbling.
Oh, but have you seen this guy with his shirt off? Whatever he’s on, I want some. I love Mark, we get along great, and he’s the best-looking guy on the show.
Well, we’ve been talking for a while now, so is there anything you wanted to mention before we wrap this up?
Well, I think The Duel II is going to be a great show. Oh, and I have some shameless plugs: I’m doing a lot of work with the White Ribbon campaign, which works to end violence against women – especially poignant right now, what with the whole Chris Brown/Rihanna thing. They do great work. And Kenny and I have started our own company, Suck Yeah, which is all about being cool, not buying cool. Like, if you have a lot of clotehs that have Celtic writing on it, you're not cool. If you wear a lot of layered clothing, that's not cool.
What if it's cold?
Well, fine, but if you're still wearing three different shirts in the summer, then get over yourself.
