The second episode of this season of the Real World allowed us to see more of what we can expect over the next four months. In last week’s episode, we got to see Danny go through the consequences of a fight. Apparently, the punch he received has led to a fracture next to his eye, and this will require surgery to repair. Surgery that appears to be occurring next week. He’s in a great deal of pain it seems, and the doctor did recommend he take it easy.

This means he is home alone when others plan to go out drinking again. Or does he end up not being alone? Last week, some small sparks began to fly between Danny and his housemate, Melinda. Every guy in the house gave her at least one or more looks. However, it is Danny that has caught her eye. Even with a man back at home waiting for her return, her attention seems to be all focused on Danny.

When he stays home because he’s in too much pain, it is she that stays home with him. The two end up sharing a bed, and a moment is interrupted when the rest of the house mates return from their night out.

A good part of the show deals with the job the cast will have to complete over the time the show takes place. They will be responsible for filming a documentary of a music and film festival that takes places in the area, South by Southwest. The festival took place back in March of this year.

After we learned the task the cast will have for this season, the show’s attention went back to Melinda and her issues with the man in her life back home. A discussion occurs over the phone, and Jason states he has written her off already, quickly ending the phone call.

The next day he apologizes over email, and tries to resolve the problems between them. After some more phone discussions, Melinda decides to end her relationship with Jason and pursues Danny.

So far, I’m enjoying this season. The cast is definitely offering some entertainment. I’m a bit bothered by how quickly Danny and Melinda have hooked themselves up, but that has been known to happen in the real world, no pun intended. It seems the show is surrounding those two for the time being. I want to see some more of the other cast too.

From what it looks like to me, the two are already a couple, and this is only week two of the show. What are your thoughts of this season so far? Do you have someone living in the house you love or you hate? Let’s talk about it.

AUTHOR’S NOTE: Comments may contain speculation and spoilers for future episodes of the Real World: Austin so please be aware of that before reading. Also, please remember these are real people that lived in the house in Austin, and not fictional characters.

    It’s impossible to feel sorry for Melinda after getting stiff armed by her boyfriend since the moment the show started she has been flirting with Danny. I think she had planned from the start to ditch the boyfriend and hook up with somebody.

  • http://ginasramblings.blogspot.com/ Gina

    That is definitely what it looks like to me too. She was all over Danny from the time they met.

  • http://thickgirl.net Serena

    I hate when people go on the Real World talking about they have a boyfriend/girlfriend and then hooking up with someone in the house. If you know you’ll be attracted to someone in the house break up with the boyfriend/girlfriend before you go on or at least take a break from each other.

  • rikki

    i think this is going to be the best real world yet….i am glad mel broke up with her boyfriend back home…danny is way much cuter…i think the 2 are so cute….this one is going to be better than the last ones.

  • Stephanie

    Does anyone know where you can find good pictures of Danny from the Real World Austin besides at MTV.com? I want to find pictures I can print of him. He is soooo cute. :)

  • http://www.dorksandlosers.com Tan The Man

    Hooking up has just become the standard for the show. I think it might even be a requirement, I just need to read a contract for the show to confirm.

  • http://ginasramblings.blogspot.com/ Gina

    I’m not sure where there are other pictures, but if I see any I’ll comment back again!

    I too think this is setting itself up to be one of the better seasons in recent years. We’ll have to see.

    As for the hooking up, they usually don’t happen this quickly, but I do think they are becoming a natural part of the show. Even on the challenges you see it more and more.

  • Stephanie

    Thanks Gina. I really wish I could find some good pictures of Danny to print out. I wish there was a way to find out his last name too so people could do a search and try to find pictures. Well, let me know if you find anything. Thanks again, and take care.

  • Megan

    Marina, thanks for telling what his last name is, ive been looking for it. And yeah mtv onair has really great pics of all the cast but i was only looking for danny b.c he is sooooo hott! i think danny deserves better then melinda, she is such a slut, but i found out after the show they got engaged and they are going to have their own newlyweds show on Mtv! In next weeks episode danny is going to find out his mom dies, its so sad, everything happens to him. Danny is soooo fineeeeeeeee!

  • http://indemnification.blogspot.com -E

    I can’t bring myself to watch the show. I live in Austin and pretty much everyone I know here is with me in not being able to stand them. I am so glad they aren’t here anymore!

  • viva

    everybody is gay

  • Lizzy

    It’s sad that Danny’s mother died. I can’t imagina how it would feel. All that greif… It makes me want to cry! Poor Danny. I saw the preveiws for the next episode-Melinda get’s an E-mail from Danny saying that he might give up. Melinda was crying. That’s proof enough that Melinda and Danny were made for eachother.

    Rest In Peace,
    Danny’s Mother

    [Lizzy]

  • A.C

    Hey, I’m new to this board, but yeah I just saw the episode, and its really damn sad that Danny’s mom died. Cant blame him for leaving the show, forget about the show in his case, his mom died. very sad and emotional episode

    ps and yes neamiah looks just like Theo from the cosby show, or Malcolm-Jamal Warner.

  • Rachel

    I think mel needs to work on her morals a little:

    Warning: slight nudity

  • http://holla holla

    danny is really hot but dont be all mad at mel. we should be happy for her b/c she is getting such a hot guy. if you want pics or information about him just search under his name Daniel James Jamieson and you will probably find a lot of cool stuff. he is so hot!

  • http://www.xanga.com/queeniemanda Scooter8

    Does anyone know how Danny’s mother died?

  • Eric Olsen

    sadly, she was talked to death by fans of the show (kidding)

  • J.C.

    im pretty sure they stated dannys mom died from a heart attack-so i heard dannys dad say on the phone when he passed on the bad news.
    besides that,omg!! melinda is so damn hot!!!

  • J.C.

    any 1 know mel’s last name..i need sum pix!

  • Cayla

    Hey Danny,
    I want you to know that it is not your fault. she would be happy that you were on the show Real World! I am sure that she is happy that you have a great girl there! She new you loved her. I just wanted you to know that ok well i am going to go swettie~!
    I want oyu to know that you are the most gorgeous and the swettest guy i have ever seen~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~(K)

  • http://holla holla

    u all should be so happy to know that the person that punched danny was finally caught and indicted! Danny’s mother did die of a heart attack and I also heard somewhere that she was an alcoholic.

  • http://holla holla

    Danny Jamieson, who is on the current Real World: Austin this summer, cannot be in attendance, but has donated as part of the live auction the chance to go on a date with him to a Red Sox game. Other live auction items include dates with Brian Worth and Brian Holden to a Red Sox game, the chance to hang with Mike Gregorio at a Red Sox game and the chance to hang with Syrus at the Lowell Spinners baseball game on Sunday, July 31 going behind the scenes on as he throws out the first pitch. For the guys, Holly Pastor has donated a date with her in Boston the next day.

  • http://holla holla

    Melinda’s last name is Stolp

  • J.C.

    ty holla :)

  • sexibabigurl

    does anyone have any pics of melinda?

  • http://princess Angel

    I agree with all of the girls that Danny is hot!!! Danny does come back, because in the previews on MTV.com Danny says the only reason he came back was because he missed Mel. In the previews it also shows that Johannna gos to jail and I was wondering if anybody had any info on that. Yeah please post the website for danny pics. And I don’t believe the person who says they have Danny’s phone number.
    Well, go to go, bye!
    -Angel

  • Megan

    does anybody kno if danny comes bac…
    also if anybody has pics of danny please post the website.
    -Megan-

  • http://princess Angel

    For all of you guys who want to see Melinda, she will be at the Iguana Cantina in Baltimore on Saturday at 8pm. To find out more go to http://www.belowthebeltshow.com

  • katie

    well i think danny is hott and gorgeous and him and mel are soo cute together and i really hope he comes bak to austion since his mom died and everything cuz hes jus so sexy

  • AC

    man its sad that danny had to face that. one of the worst things ever. screw the show in his case..hes got bigger problems then screwing some stupid blonde. His mom died, for crying out loud.

  • Betty

    I heard that Wes and Jo are engaged and that Danny and Mel are engaged. Does any1 know if this is true?

  • Megan

    the previews for next weeks episode show that danny comes back and he doesnt talk to melinda, does anybody think that they will break up?

  • Megan

    where did u hear that they were engaged?

  • J

    I think that a lot of people need to stop hating on Melinda and stuff and just lay off. Danny said on his post on MTV that the show is completely out of order, and that you guys don’t know the real story of everything. So I didn’t see any of you living in that house, so I wouldn’t judge her just from what you see in a 30 min. show.
    I do love Danny, he’s such a hot stuff.

  • Lana

    i think Danny is HOT, (like all the other gurls…….) but yes his Mom dies, and i was crying (i kno, pathetic) he looks soooo much like my aunts bf, no joke. i am soooo hooked on this show, i left cheer practice early one day just to get home ioon time to see it.

    and what is up with Danny and Melinda in the next episode?will someone tell me?, i won’t get to see it, will someone fill me in on the first week too?

  • Lana

    i wish i could go to the house or just talk to him, that would make my life sooooo much better

  • Becky

    haha woah stalkers, danny and mel do stay together i just saw them yesterday at the mall.

  • megan

    which mall…. and how do u kno they are still togehter they could have jus went as friends or something…..

  • http://holla holla

    OMG u guys. All u have to do is go to mtv.com and read the cast members Q&A to find out what relationships are going to turn out like. Danny and Mel can’t stop taliking about how much they are in love with each other anf Johanna even comments about Wes a couple times. Like a question was what did you like most abou Austin. And danny responded something like doing Mel!And this is after the show is over.

    To get stuff on Danny just type in his name and Real World Austin. Some websites even hint at things to come.

  • http://holla holla

    o yeah and another thing.

    In the cast photos after the real World was done shooting Mel and Danny were like always next to each other and even hugging in one. If they had broken up they would not be being that nice to each other. Like Landon and Shavonda from Philly hated each other during Inferno 2

  • Becky

    Danny and Melinda ARE still together, infact they have a house together, they live right near me.

  • megan

    becky wut state do u live in?

  • chris

    hey look i went to a party and they were there but this was a few weeks ago so like on the 2 one i new his mom died and yes they r still toghter im 1 hundred percent sure

  • http://holla holla

    I know someone that met Johanna at the mall or something like that and she told him that like a bunch of crazy stuff happens to her (jail) and Nehemiah and Wes get in a fight.Danny does come back for Mel he even said so, the previews for next weeks episode are meant to throw you off.

    Becky they do not live by you. And even if they did why are you spending your time talking to us about danny when you could actually be talking to danny?

    and J u are so right! People do need to stop hating on Mel.

    All you girls should get over yourselfs b/c danny is never going to be with you.

    Even if u did get the chance to date him he would dump u b/c u would be acting like a crazy fan around him.

    GET A LIFE!

    Danny may be hot, but all people that are put on tv usually are other wise no one would watch.

    You guys better watch out because danny wants to be a lawyer and he could sue your asses for stalking him!

    You guys give all fans of the show a bad name.

    i repeat…

    GET A LIFE!

    Thanx for your time.

  • Becky

    hahaha wow you people are funny, too bad that i live in methuen mass which is right near wyndham and billerica, towns im pretty sure you’ve apparently never heard of. you people are definatley wicked up there on the stalker status. Your all so anxious to talk to everyday normal people…too funny. you’ll feel pretty dumb when the shows over and you see that mel and danny do have a house together, haha lataaa

  • http://holla holla

    hey Becky thanx for agreeing with me. Everyone else is just insane stalkers, and actually i do know where those places are. soory for saying they did not live by you!

  • Krista

    i think this is the best real world yet. i love them all and i live in g-town which is the hometown of Melinda.. i think she is gorgeous and danny is just as good… i ran into them together and they both looked happy and cute together and i talked quickly to them and they were both really nice and sweet i hope we continue to see more of them together.. now after watching the Real World Austin i believe in love at first site.. look at danny and melinda!! :0)

  • AC

    love at first sight? haha you guys are stupid. These guys are in their mid twenties and all they wanna do is screw eachother. Danny came back so he could screw melinda…you ask me are they in true love? helllll no! its all about him getting pussy and vise versa

    welcome to America.

  • Bri

    I totally agree with holla. Everyone here are fricken stalkers but Danny is hot. I’m not like obbsessing with him or stalking him i’m just saying he’s hot. Okay and if you have any fricken question about Real World get a brain and go to MTV.com and find info on it. Or you could also just watch the show. Plus no one on here has him phone number or email even if they say so. Okay well consider this info a helpful message. PEACE!!!

  • brooke s.

    Was that really melinda talking?

  • brooke s.

    cause if that was that would be so cool!

  • mac

    Alright enough about Danny and all the other B.S. What I want to know is who thinks Rachel is a fake. I can’t stand how she has to throw around about how she was in Iraq. I think it is all for attention. Nehemeia was right when he told her to drop the whole Iraq card and he questioned that she was really there. I agree. No one who really went through an experience like that would not throw it around for pitty.

  • Chelsey

    Yall need to get ur facts straight. Danny and Melinda are not engaged and are not living together!! GO on the real world/road rules blog and see what they wrote!! And on October 31,when the Guantlet 2 premeres, Danny and Melinda are gonna be on it!! I think that they are so0o cute together and Danny is so hott!

  • Jessy

    danny and melinda are still together!!! and yes he does have email i dont think it is fan mail but i know some fans do email him on it and he responded.. i emailed him and asked him where he got his hats cause i know a lot of ppl are looking for them and he answered. its really him cause my brothers friend talks to him and has hung out with him.

  • http://holla holla

    Jessy, people are going to tell you that you are lying, but don’t listen to them b/c I totally believe your story.

  • mELISSA
