Episode Summary

An Order of Footie With a Side of Flirting
Susie reads the news that the last voyage in the Winnie will take place the next day. Time to gather up all belongings and turn in the keys. Shayne wonders, "What are we going to do without the Winnie?" Hmmm... "It's kind of sad to say goodbye to the Winnie, because it's been our home for a long time," comments Christina. The Winnie is unloaded and one last picture is snapped. That night, a manila envelope is delivered containing airline tickets to Melbourne. Also in the package is the next clue, stating "Get your kicks playing Aussie Rules Football with the mystery six." A bewildered Christina admits, "I have no idea what Aussie Rules Football could even be." Arriving in the beautiful city of Melbourne, they travel to Xavier college and meet Shane: professional football star and their coach for the upcoming game. Piggy is immediately smitten, "Shane is really good looking. He's beautiful." Wait a second, let's back up for a moment…what game? The Road Rules / Aussie Rules Challenge Cup. Ok, but who are we playing? The All-Stars; consisting of Emily from season 2, Chris and Belou from season 3, Oscar from season 4, and Dan and Roni from season 5. Wow. Shane ends the chatter by bringing the two teams into classroom to learn the rules of the game. He introduces Nick, another pro player and the coach of the All-Stars. The specifics of the sport are discussed and demonstrated, but this is Generation X. The true way to learn something is through…what else? Video games and television! The teams take turns playing on the computer and watching a tape of athletes in action. The violence of the sport is evident as Shayne remarks, "From what I understand, pretty much everybody gets killed somewhere along the line. This is something where we can really get hurt." Time to practice. The teams are run through an assortment of intense drills: running, passing, kicking, and flirting. Flirting?! Piggy moves in on Shane, but she's not the only one who's taken a liking to the coach. Seems Susie also has the hots and thinks he's "babe-licious". The other Shayne has seen this before. "Susie's at it again. She's the queen of the flirts, and she just bats her eyelashes and gives a little smile." Susie shows off her butterfly tattoo to the football player, eagerly pulling up her shirt to showcase the inked flesh. All of Susie's flirting hasn't discouraged Piggy who has already managed to pocket his phone number. And that's not the only spot of affection on the field. Christina and Oscar seem to have something brewing. He even sniffs her armpit, telling her it "smells like apricot." A definite sign of true love. Piggy hopes begin to sink as Shane spends all his time with Susie. "I'm completely jealous. I wish it was me sitting with Shane." Both teams are handed tickets to go see a professional game up close. They pack a bus and head to the stadium where Roni picks away at Kefla's introverted nature. She questions him on why he chooses to sleep the trip away. "Do you know how much you're missing by sleeping?…I wish I would've mingled more." Kefla comments that Roni "is the first person that I had a chance to actually talk to that if I say something, she could understand." They spend the night at Shane's uncle's house which is practically a mansion. Piggy thinks "it's just a sex den…There's a shower for two." The music begins, and the teams get down. While Christina and Oscar get closer in the hot tub, Belou and Chris speak about how their trips changed them. Christina remarks, "Everybody's really affectionate with everybody else, and I feel real bad 'cause we're gonna have to kick their butts tomorrow." Tomorrow comes. Lacking decent sleep, the teams leave for the big game. Shayne tells the others that they're going to "see real passion come out of me. Everything about me will be laid out on that field." In the locker room, the customized Footie uniforms are donned. Dan tapes down his boxer shorts, Kefla psyches up his team, and Susie…flirts. Love later. It's time to go to war! Shayne shouts, "You were all born to be here! This is your moment! Seize it!" Out on the field, scores of young school boys gather to watch the match. Breaking through banners, both teams charge onto the grass. Authentic announcers introduce the players. The testosterone-fueled crowd cheers Susie the loudest. Road Rules Six wins the coin toss. Shayne warns, "It's going to be a massacre." Let the carnage begin! from MTV.commoreless
