Fun, fun, for everyone!

"The next contestant loves the Powerpuff Girls, margaritas, and older men who take him for granted." ~Hostess

Fun, fun, fun! That's the only way I can think of to describe this episode, which is spent almost entirely in Babylon. Justin starts getting fed up with the way that Brian is treating him, so with a few words of advice, he decides to take things into his own hands. Blake and Ted blossom as a couple, while Brian signs David up for the King of Babylon contest. Emmett also meets a hot guy that is absolutely perfect, but they only know each other for one hour and forty-five minutes before things turn sour. Vic is also arrested for 'indecent exposure'. Add all of this into a blender, mix, and you have an extremely fun episode, especially the scene where the winner of the King of Babylon contest is crowned. I also loved all of the interactions between Justin and Brian, and I especially love how Justin is really coming into his own. So much fun!
