You guys are so much nicer than I am. I like him, but I can't feel bad for him because I am not sure why he's there, maybe he's being paid as a cast member? He's 19, does he have nothing going on in his life that he can take three weeks to go stay in a hotel room and pick bows? Isn't coming with his father encouraging him? Maybe he thought he could do something about it if he were there, but any time he's tried to on camera, it's super useless.
Now when he talks to his father about the money and his bankruptcy, he doesn't say "she's not going to stay with you, you're getting old, seriously you're deciding to flush everything you have down the toilet and ignore your future completely, you know she's going to dump you when she realizes the money's tapped out, can we please stop this insanity?" Instead he says "you're not selling the house [that I live in] are you?" and Scott says "Why are you complaining, there's food on the table at home, isn't there?" and somehow he shuts up. Dear Adam: You are not going to get fed or sheltered much longer. Start saving up, figure out some way to be supporting yourself soon ('cause it's coming...), when you move out try not to get a place with a second bedroom.
