Episode Summary

Clip a Koala to Your Collar
Meet Suzie, 18, from Pittsburgh, as she stands alone on a narrow bridge that overlooks a gorgeous waterfall on the island of Maui - that's Hawaii, you know. She's a blond cutie, and she's waiting to meet her travel mates. Speak of the devil. Here comes Shayne, 22, from Canada. He gets an eyeful of sweet Sue and privately confesses, "My hormones are in full gear!" Now Piggy, 25, from England you know lovie, strolls up with her backpack. She's got a wild mane of curly-cue hair and explains that her father named her Piggy because she popped out of the womb all pink and squealing like a pig. Isn't that… cute. And here comes Kefla, 23, a handsome African-American joker. Hello, Christina! She's 21, and an introspective hipster from LA. Five down, one to go. And here he is! Roadie number six is Chadwick, 24, from Colorado. He's a hunk of hunkiness. Now look - here come Dan and Tara - from the Northern Trail! You know what that's all about. Dan and Tara collect all the cash from the new crew and explain the first mission: cliff diving for cash. Geronimo… The new Roadies slip into their bathing suits and hike to the top of a 25 foot high cliff. Suzie is the first to throw caution to the wind as she hurls herself off the mountain, splashing into the chilly water far below. The dudes are shocked by her daring and bravery. Hey man, she's a kewl chick… Shayne, Chad, Christina, and Kefla all take the plunge, but Piggy is freaking out - she just can't bring herself to jump. Finally, she closes her eyes and the next thing you know she's in the air. Nice job, babe! Tara and Dan hand over the promised cash - five bucks. Five bucks?! That's it?! That's right. Dan explains, if you want more money, take the 35 foot jump. Oh, is that how it works? The road-mates hike up to the 35 foot drop. Suzie again leaps first, just barely missing the jagged rocks far below. This is getting serious. The boys leap without looking, leaving Piggy and Christina gulping fear. The girls join hands and leap together - very Thelma and Louise. Collect your cash, kids! Tara hands out some more money, but it's still not enough. Dan explains, whoever takes the 45 foot jump will receive this magic box - and the special prize inside. Chad and Shayne offer to do the dirty work, but Piggy refuses to be left behind. The three hike up to the 45 foot drop. Don't look down… Piggy places her toes on the edge of the mossy rock - look at that blue water churning down below. Just do it! Piggy is gone, screaming her head off as she flies through the air. Splash! She's safe. Chad does a nice needle dive and Shayne does this arm-flailing-out-of-control thing, very funny. Back on dry land, Dan hands the magic box over to Piggy. There's and extra $300! You'll need that. Tara hands over a treasure map, instructing the Roadies to hit the beach to search for their buried treasure. When the Roadies arrive on the sand, the local lifeguards supply them with metal detectors. After literally hours of scrutinizing the map and searching the sand, the Roadies finally dig out a package and a tape - the first clue. Hurry up and unwrap that parcel! Hey, we've got passports! And… plane tickets to Sydney, Australia! Good day, mate! The Roadies hike to the airport, their backs loaded with their heavy packs. While waiting for their flight at the gate, Piggy pulls Christina aside for a quick confession - I think Chad is really cute and I know I'm going to get stupid and try to impress him. Christina advises, "just be yourself." Piggy continues, explaining that she recently broke up with her boyfriend of two years - he was cheating on le pig. Meanwhile, a few feet away, Chad in confessing to Suzie - I was in love with my girlfriend Skye, but she was cheating on me with her ex-boyfriend. Your flight is now boarding! As the Roadies pile onto the big bird and stow their baggage, Piggy complains quietly, "I wanted to sit next to Chad." Romance is already sparking… Our lucky bunch lands in balmy Sydney, Australia. It's so beautiful! And so unlike anywhere else. Even the air smells different. The Roadies check into their nice, clean youth hostel, where they are informed that they will be attending a Super Jesus concert later in the evening. Kewl!! So get grooming... After the evening's concert (it was a kewl show by the way), the Roadies press backstage to meet the band. They're kewl guys all around and the lead singer hands over the next clue: Go to the Stonewall hotel when you'll learn just who wears the pants in the family when you learn to shake your booty. Wait a minute. Stonewall? Isn't that the name of the bar where the gay rights movement was christened? I think so… from MTV.commoreless
