Episode Summary

The morning of the final competition, the teens are woken up by Ursula and Dave, who lead the nervous teens to a Hawaiian meadow, where their final competition, appropriately titled "The Final Finish" will take place. Dave and Ursula remind the teens that the previous competitions have tested their mental, physical and team skills. This competition, however, will test all three. In the competition, the teams must start at the starting line and race to the finish line, collecting Hawaiian statue pieces along the way. The teams will make their way from point A to point B using a Hawaiian landsled, pulled by three team members, while the final team member sits in the landsled and navigates. In an added twist, the three teens pulling the landsled will be blindfolded. While the girls, with navigator Christina, take an early lead, the boys are not far behind. Minutes later, with all three statue pieces collected, the teens find themselves neck and neck when they meet at the final part of the mission: use a pulley system to direct each statue piece to a rod that each piece can fit on. This time, while the boys take an early lead with the pulley system, Christina complains about her lack of grip on the pulley rope, costing her team time. Minutes later, Jessica worries as the boys work on directing their third and final statue piece to the rod, while her team is still working on their second piece. However, when the boys find that their pulley lines have become tangled up, the girls gain the lead. As the boys panic and lose focus, the girls direct their third and final piece to the rod. The girls, having won the final competition, congratulate each other with hugs and tears. At the same time, the boys, upset and frustrated, find themselves in tears. Having collected themselves, the teams confront each other, and the boys congratulate their competition, while the girls console their upset rivals. Later that day, Dave and Ursula meet the teens at the scoreboard, adding 600 points to the girls' score, giving them the win. As a reward, the girls each receive $10,000 in cash and a back-to-school wardrobe from Aeropostale. That night, the teens reminisce about their favorite moments. While Justin says his favorite part of the experience was making new friends, Lauren worries she may never see her six new friends ever again. On the final morning, the teens find that they are now just realizing their time on GVB is coming to an end. Kris, having finally sorted out his feelings, gives Jessica a necklace and tells Jessica he just wanted to say goodbye. To Kris' surprise, Jessica tells him she will honestly miss him, and appreciates his gift. As the cast packs, each teen gets one final moment to talk to the camera about the experience as a whole. Teri says his biggest regret was getting so close to Christina, even though he believes she is an "awesome" girl. Justin tells the cameras he has learned one doesn't need to hook up with every girl, while Kris believes Jessica is the girl that turned his life around. As for the girls, Lauren tells the cameras she will miss not having her new friends in her life anymore, while Christina regrets blowing off other cast members and not giving them a chance. Dina says that although she came to Hawaii to win, she now believes the friendships she has made are the most important. Finally, Jessica says the experience was a unique experience during which she got to meet seven strangers that became like family to her. With their final camera interviews over, and with their bags packed, the teens leave their Hawaiian home for the airport. At the airport, the teens give their final goodbyes, with the exception of Justin, who opts to skip the hug altogether and give Lauren a goodbye kiss. As the boys leave for their planes, the girls, comforting each other and crying over the thought of leaving, are left to await their planes.moreless
