While the 1996 Miami season bears the distinction of having the first threesome on reality television, the show’s 2002 Las Vegas threesome is the first that we actually see on screen. Unfortunately, a clip of this doesn’t seem to be on YouTube, so you’ll have to be content with just this little rundown of what went on in the scene:

All the roommates get very drunk on their third night in Las Vegas, and proceed to get into the Jacuzzi. Trishelle, Steven, and Brynn all get out of the hot tub at one point, and end up in the same bed together getting freaky, while other roommates look on from another room. It’s hard to watch, even moreso when you take into account that Trishelle deeply regrets it the next morning. Basically, it’s a classic Real World scene. Sort of makes the Jersey Shore kids seem unoriginal, doesn’t it? Their antics that took place in Seaside seven years later can likely be attributed to this very episode.

The fact that it was the first televised threesome in Real World history isn’t even the most shocking thing about this, though; it’s actually that it took until 2002 for a threesome between the cast to actually be shown on screen.
