As we all know, Season 6 lacks dear old Kenny, who was finally killed for good (sort of) at the end of Season 5. For the duration of Season 6 so far Butters has been the boys’ fourth friend, but unfortunately he’s just not doing a satisfactory job (I think he made quite an effort though) and they fire him.
And of course, that leaves a vacancy. Thus, the boys hold auditions for all the other boys to see who is going to be their “fourth.” It’s run a lot like one of the original reality shows, which were just about some woman or man looking for love from one of 25 or so suitors.
Besought by his tragic dismissal, Butters unleashes his evil alter-ego, a cross between Magento and Dr. Doom, and attempts to wreak havoc and destruction on the world.
