Episode Summary

Handsome Reward
The long awaited final mission has finally arrived as the Roadies wind down their tour of the South Pacific. Jeremy, who has barely unpacked his bags, waxes philosophical about how the journey has been long for some, but not long enough for others. Ready to earn the last piece of the tattoo, they learn a brand new car is at stake. The original Roadies thought it would be cool if they sat up at the front of the RV on the way to the last mission. But Chris and Jeremy are offended that the fab three want to create a division in the group at this stage in the game. Christena is not surprised that the arguing and drama runs right up until the last day. At the mission site, they see an obstacle course that looks like a giant suspended puzzle. The Roadies will pair up and must traverse the course. After each pair crosses the platforms together, they must grab a key, which is hanging from a chain, to their Subaru. Of course there's always that--if one person doesn't reach the end of the course, none of them will get the car--thing to worry about. Each pair has two tries at crossing the course and 25 minutes to complete it. After the bickering about who gets to sit in the front seat, Mary Beth is a little worried that they are not as united as they should be as a team at this point. Tina and Chris go first and are completely baffled as to how to navigate the course. Chris tells Tina that she's not allowed to cry so she holds in her emotions. Chris jumps onto the first plank and is at a loss for what he should do next. He brings Tina out to the same plank and then makes a leap for the second plank. Over-shooting, he grabs the wooden pole and holds on for dear life, but has no clue how to get to the next plank. Dave and Christena try a similar strategy and fail as well and it's looking like no one is going home with a car. While Jeremy and Mary Beth are huddled on the first plank, suddenly Jeremy has a vision of how the mission can be completed successfully and tells Mary Beth that the only way to get across is with a little thing called teamwork. The two use the ambiguously placed wooden pole to swing from plank to plank. Jeremy is the first to grab his key and Mary Beth has to stand are her tippy-toes to grab hers. Now, for the rest of the Roadies, the obstacle is a piece of cake and they all complete it. Chris hugs Tina tight and says that he's really proud of her. They all break out in cheers and hugs after Christena grabs the last key. Dave says he loves Christena and she says she loves him too and he's like a brother to her. Everyone is oozing with sweetness and respect for one another and no one seems to remember the RV incident just a few hours ago. As they put the final piece of the tattoo on the RV, they are all feeling really proud of themselves and what they have accomplished. They celebrate with champagne at their campsite. Mary Beth says that they ended with the people they were supposed to end with and she can't imagine life without any of them. Chris says he's proudest of Tina. Tina says that Mary Beth is deep, smart and one of the most beautiful girls she's ever met. She also acknowledges that Jeremy was put on their team for a reason - that last mission. They all clink glasses and toast to an amazing experience. Cut to Malibu, Calif. where they get to drive their new cars off the beach. After weeks of fighting, teasing, complaining, punching, winning and losing, drinking, flirting, learning, and eyebrow plucking, Christena sums it up best when she says, "Road Rules is a metaphor for life." from MTV.commoreless
