Episode Summary

Strip Tease
In part deux of last week's episode, the Roadies watch the tape of the Abe and Donell smackdown and are shocked by Abe's extreme anger and violence. Cara and Marybeth tear up and Abe admits he's surprised by how intense and angry he was. The Road Rules producer decides he has no other choice but to send the Montana boy home--Abe doesn't try to dispute the decision. Dave is upset that Abe released his pent-up emotions by slugging Donell. Cara wonders why he crossed the line and Marybeth apologizes for any disrespect and feels guilty about being a little harsh on him. Christena says that the way everybody was treating him was wrong. Donell is pacing, still fuming from the incident, and wants to beat Abe's ass. He holds back because he doesn't want to ruin his experience on the trip by resorting to violence. Abe packs his things and is choked up as he's saying goodbye to his teammates. He tells them that he hopes that they have learned from this experience and warns them that they should treat the new guy better than they treated him. In his final interview, Abe says that the one specific thing he regrets is not hitting Donell, rather making the comment about cornbread. Abe signs off by saying that "he was pushed beyond normal limits… and was victorious and defeated all at once." The show must go on and the following day the Roadies resume their stripping mission, but the boys are having a hard time focusing on the rehearsal. The girls walk through town to convince everyone they meet to attend the show. Because they are mostly greeted by blank stares and "no thank yous," they are worried that they won't succeed at getting 50 people to show up. At the dance studio, the guys receive their stripper robes, which leaves them wondering what they'll be wearing underneath. After savoring the suspense, Billy finally whips out two tiny thongs from his back pocket and hands them over to Dave and Donell. The guys freak and the girls squeal in delight. The guys have trouble figuring out how to put on the thong, but once they are all strapped in, the dress rehearsal begins and as soon as their robes are on the floor, the girls start howling uncontrollably while the guys dance their hearts out. Later that night, they are all convinced they will lose the mission because an hour before the show, the club is empty. Right before the performance, the girls resort to dragging potential patrons into the club (called "Flesh"). Once the performance starts, Dave and Donell toss any lingering shyness aside and throw everything they've got into their dance and the crowd goes wild. The drag queen judges give them high scores and they have no problem attaining the minimum score and they also learn they have enough people in the audience, so they win the mission. Post-mission, Donell, Cara and Marybeth all concur that they probably wouldn't have won if Abe was still around. Feeling perhaps a little too comfortable with their barely-there costumes and their new-found stripper fame, the ambiguously straight duo, Dave and Donell, prance around the laundry room and the park in nothing but their thongs. from MTV.commoreless
