Worst Apartment Contest Update
Sumit's: Inside looks clean, just sparsely furnished. Outside you can be murdered over ten bucks. And blood stains on the sidewalk. Well, tobacco juice according to Sumit, and we can believe him, right? But it has a security gate. There is that.
Jihoon's: Inside is about the size of a walk-in closet. You can use the toilet and take a shower at the same time, so that is convenient. It does look clean and fairly modern though, and furnished. Outside looks like one of those abandoned cities after a nuclear reactor meltdown.
Bini's: Inside looks like it was furnished from a Goodwill store in the 80's. I think I saw the bed in an Indian porn movie. The bathroom needs yellow "Do Not Cross" tape across the doorway. Excellent use of green technology with the open water tank sanitized by leaves. Hard to judge the outside because it was nighttime and dark, but it gave me the ominous feeling that there might be guerilla fighters lurking in the weeds someplace.
Michael's: Actually a nice little apartment, except for the three foot-long master bed, and the BIG DEAD RAT in the kitchen.
Paul's Apartments: Leave it to Pole to actually find places to live in this country that makes Kreeny's digs in the Amazon look like a luxury condo by comparison. Technically disqualified as he has not officially rented one of them yet, but an honorable mention.
Bini's Number 2: The reigning champion outdoes himself with this classic fixer-upper. Highlights include the dead animal smell from the toilet, which I theorize might be Michael's dead rat, and the open wiring plan in the baby's room. I am "shocked" he was able to get this place so cheap.
The winner: Bini's Number 2. He just keeps raising the bar (or lowering it?).
