Frat boys Kris Herrmann and Dave Vreeland have something to brag about. Out of the 21 guys in their fraternity, their room is the messiest. The 12 by 20-foot room is a decent size, but they can hardly move around in the space because it is piled so high with stuff. The desk is absolutely atrocious; there is no room to even open a book. Kris and Dave are two very social guys, so their room has become a gathering spot for the rest of the frat house. Unfortunately, when their frat brothers visit, they don't always clean up after themselves. Professional organizer Betty Kim went to this same university, so she's anxious to revisit her alma mater and tackle this challenge.

The first order of business is to get rid of the garbage and old fast food containers that are lying about. The coffee table has become a dining table. It is encrusted with pizza sauce and food from weeks gone by, and it's starting to smell really bad. There is plenty of closet space in the room, but the guys choose to use the chairs and the floors to store the all of their clothes.
