7. CRISP's Nemesis

The season is bookended with run-ins with the New York NEANDERTHALS, an accidental hit of a clothing brand run by the brash ex-drug dealer Tim (James Ransone). The Neanderthals aren't outright adversaries of Ben and Cam but they have everything the guys want—a flagship store, fame, their girls' attention—with what the CRISP boys perceive to be a lesser product. NEANDERTHAL's success, which is constantly flashed in Ben and Cam's faces pushes them to grind harder, something that was much needed.
