Since only Sheila, Nathan, and Leslie moved to the new neighborhood, Leslie is the only contestant (so far) that has been kicked out on her own. So, I decided to check in on Leslie to see how life had been treating her since she left the show heartbroken.
When I found her, she was still in the prom-meets-bridesmaid dress that she showed up in to Sheila & Nathan’s wedding. However, she was at the laundromat- so perhaps she just wears this when she runs out of clothes?
I followed her back to her new place, which is a cute little house that she occupies by herself- no roommate. Oh…odd thing was…she *has* a washer and dryer at home…and they weren’t broken. So was she just looking to make some friends at the laundromat?
Despite not being particularly artistic, or needing any skills in that area for her job, Leslie seems to have an interest in the arts. She wishes to take a class in painting, and she owns a string bass (she already owned it when I went to check on her…I’m not exactly sure how such an expensive purchase was acquired).
Leslie met one of her neighbor- a friendly old woman, who seems to be Leslie’s only friend in this new neighborhood.
Since she’s been on her own she has acquired a “boyfriend”…one Justin Kayes. He is apparently some genius computer whiz guy…but he’s kind of a jerk. They went on one date, and it did not go very well. She has a better relationship with her car (seriously, she considers it a “good friend”…it is affectionately called the Sloppy Jalopy) than Justin. He never stops by, calls, or shows an interest.
To make ends meet, she is pursuing a life of crime…she works with some seedy folks, but she doesn’t consider any of them “friends”. I’m not exactly sure she is suited for a life of crime though…she has made no career progress…even after I spent a week managing things for her. A major factor is her difficulty in building the athletic skill- she is clumsy…so her and working out don’t go well together.
She has no television or computer and no one to talk with, but she still manages to keep herself entertained.
The nice old lady invites her to a formal get-together she is having.
Leslie tries to make some new friends, but she isn’t meeting the friendliest people.
Back home…the sink is now leaking. It seems like things break around here on a daily basis, but Leslie has no money to buy new ones.
Of course, she can improve her house by taken home items stolen from work…like this soap dispenser…
Just when you think things can’t get any worse….you get arrested.
After spending a night in jail, Leslie thinks she needs to add to her (imaginary) tough-girl persona by getting another tatoo!
Then it’s back to the gym!
