  4. I lived with him in a sober house in Texas a year or so after this episode aired. He couldn’t stop mentioning that he was on the show, like it was a badge of honor or something. Nice kid inside the shell of tough guy. Hope he’s alright today.

  5. Does anyone have any new updates on him? I only wonder if he ever got in control with his temper.

    • What’s your top 10?

      • haha i don’t actually have a top 10, i was just being dramatic, but if i did: gabe the gambler from season 1 would definitely be number 1, followed by cristy from season 2 (with the weird eyebrows), followed by tiffany d from season 10. i don’t care for michael here, and although he’s made the list, the 3 from above are the WORST and are right at the top!! i would have to think about the rest, although i’m sure there are some i’m forgetting that are no-brainers for the list. what about you?

        • I agree with your pics. I’d add Mark from Season 1 and Betsy from Season 2. I’d also give Marquel from Season 7 and Adam from Season 8 special mentions due solely to how they reacted/behaved at their interventions.

        • Derek Season 5 is on my list, probably as high as #2 after you know who.

        • ohhhh yeah, mark from season 1 is definitely on the list! abandoning his dying wife…wow. good one! i forgot about him. i haven’t seen adam’s episode yet. i actually haven’t seen betsy’s either but only bc i can’t find it online anywhere. it’s unavailable on both hulu and weirdly, aetv.com. i’m not sure if i’d add marquel to my list though (maaaaybe; i’d have to give it some thought), but she sure behaved like a lunatic at her intervention. i’ll definitely agree with you there.

        • Oh God I forgot about Derek. I’d also probably add Chad to the list as well.

  7. This guy seemed like he had some clear sociopathic tendencies, which is not fixable…I hope he ends up in prison before he does something truly horrific.
