* CharacterDerailment: Invoked by the writers of the show. [[spoiler:In the reunion episode, the entire cast has lost all the development they gained throughout the series ''and then some''.]]
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: From episode 8:
-->'''Frank''': WE WILL NOT HAVE SEX! [[spoiler:(takes hammer to genitals)]]
** Crosses over with {{Squick}}.
* LesYay: Alex kisses Tara in the first episode after they've been drinking, much to Tara's annoyance.
** Alex essentially molests the injured pole dancer in episode 3.
* NightmareFuel: [[spoiler:The whole series. ''Seriously''.]]
* NoYay: In episode 2, Frank kisses the unsuspecting Derek while they're playing Sexy Truth or Sexy Dare.
-->'''Derek''': [[DeadpanSnarker That was definitely a low point.]]
** The entire show, at first for laughs, then for dark laughs.
* {{Squick}}: Frank. Just... ''[[DirtyOldMan Frank]]''.
** [[spoiler: Erin is pregnant with Frank's child. Frank is a married man with two daughters who are ''Erin's'' age.]]
** That ''[[NightmareFuel mold]]''...
*** The Sex House itself gets pretty disgusting.
** The Banana Sex Olympics in episode 5, especially the regurgitated bananas.
* TearJerker: At the very end of the last episode, when [[spoiler:Tara finally resolves to eat her frogs]].
** You have to really watch the reunion episode carefully to understand how tragic it is. It's true that [[spoiler: all of the cast (even Derek, who looked like he was on Death's doorstep) was able to survive and seemingly recover from the StockholmSyndrome they all underwent by Episode 9]], but at what cost? [[spoiler: All of the CharacterDevelopment Jay and Tara went through seems undone, Frank divorced his wife, Alex is a broken shell who is in love with one of her former jailers (while also showing signs of being subconsciously terrified of him at the same time), Erin seems to have become harsher, Derek's orientation was "cured," and above everything, they seem to have been warped into being the generic reality show cast people wanted to see. [[{{StepfordSmiler}} Behind the seemed relaxedness and the smiles and "blogging careers," there's really nothing at all]].]]
* TheWoobie: The housemates are ''all'' Woobies [[BreakTheCutie eventually]].
** [[spoiler:Erin]] is an IronWoobie by episode 5. [[spoiler:By the last episode they all become such.]]
