Episode Summary

EDIT
Face Off
AIRED:
Chris and Dave speculate on what the new guy is gonna be like and they discuss how the newbie Roadie is basically going to win a prize for pretty much doing nothing. If all goes well, he'll be able to claim his handsome reward in just two missions. Jeremy bounces onto the scene and the Roadies immediately notice a positive vibe to Donell's replacement. He wants to bring "happiness, spirit and energy" to the team. Perhaps a little too excited to be there, the new kid on the block drinks a lotta too much and makes a fool of himself by hitting on Mary Beth so hard that she's actually getting bruises. OK, so that's as cheesy as Jeremy's pick up lines, but you get the picture. The Roadies admit that it's hard to trust someone they haven't seen perform before and based on Jeremy's irresponsible actions on his first night there, they are a little worried about this guy. Their clue indicates that they should get a lot of rest that night because they'll need it for the mission tomorrow, but, not interested in following directions, the Roadies end up talking into the wee hours of the morning and don't get a wink of sleep. After arriving at their next mission site, they learn they will be competing in the (sound the trumpets) Road Rules Face Off against the Road Rules Campus Crawl team. Campus Crawl is thirsty for a win after an embarrassing loss to The Real World: Las Vegas last year. The experienced Road Rulers greet South Pacific and then get down to business. They are told this mission involves playing various games that will test their memory and logic over a 48 hour period, in which they will… Not Be Allowed To Sleep (add echo for more dramatic effect). South Pacific should have seen this coming. They freak because they are already going on 24 hours of no sleep. Each team is given a video camera and if they catch someone closing their eyes for more than five seconds, that person will be eliminated from the Face Off. Each time they win a game, they receive a Tiki statue and the team that ends up with the most statues gets a trophy and $12,000. The first task has each team drawing Henna tattoos on one male and one female team member. The team with the most creative design will win this part of the competition. Christena jokingly suggests that Mary Beth go topless and let her team paint her breasts. Mary Beth goes for it and it helps South Pacific score the first Tiki statue. Raquel from Campus Crawl plots with Darrell about how she's going to trick Jeremy into shutting his eyes so he'll get kicked out of the game. She plans to hang out and flirt with Jeremy and then encourage him to take a nap. You know, they'll watch each others back kind of a thing. But really, she's just looking to gain his trust so she can stab Jeremy in the back. The next game has the teams building a house of cards. Once the foundation is built, they must place cards on top of the foundation and whoever ruins the house, loses the game. Sounds silly, but it's really quite difficult. The Roadies are getting tired and bickery, while Campus Crawl looks confident. Chris ends up losing the game for his team and Campus Crawl celebrates while Tina berates her team for not listening to her bark orders during the game. With an even score, we have to wait until next week to find out who the big winner will be...
