When I heard Junie Allen Browning was doing a TUF blog for UFC.com, I had to check it out to see how apologetic/ashamed he was going to be after watching last night’s episode, in which he drank eight bottles of vodka, nearly broke his neck falling off a balcony, destroyed some house decor, then cried himself to sleep next to the pool. But judging from this excerpt, I don’t think he’s quite wrapped his head around how unacceptable his belligerent retardedness actually was:
If I had seen the previous season, I don’t think I would have acted that crazy, but the show was being recorded as season seven was being played so I didn’t know anything about Jesse Taylor and all that stuff. And to be honest, I thought Jesse Taylor made the show a little more interesting.
To be honest, I think they underplayed it, I was hoping they’d show a little more. They made me look a little more sane than I really am. Seriously though, it was somewhat embarrassing because I never really see myself acting like that big of an idiot, and now I can see where everyone’s coming from when they watch me and go ‘this guy’s a lunatic.’ Now I see it.
Sure, Jesse Taylor made last season interesting, but everybody watching pitied him. Dude was pathetic. And we’ll pity Junie Browning after he fucks up bad enough to be thrown out of the house. (Next episode, hopefully?) Also, if Junie’s truly embarrassed by what he saw in episode 3, he probably wouldn’t want them to “show a little more.” To borrow a phrase from addiction-recovery, I don’t think Junie’s reached his bottom yet. Who knows, maybe he straightens out after Dana gives him the tongue-lashing next week, and he can afford to have a dismissive attitude about his former drinking problem. I was just hoping for more humility. The guy’s a constant distraction, and his antics put other fighters in danger. Doesn’t he know what a dumb asshole he is?
