We learn that Julie's admission back into BYU is in jeopardy since she broke a rule by living with guys on her Real World season. A luxourous yacht comes to pick each team up where they can mingle and start the trash talking. The captain shows up with a clear brief case containing $150,000 monster.com cash and a cd which reveals their mission thoughout the season narrated by Theo from the Road Rules Maximum Velocity Tour. The Yacht goes around a cove revealing a crance with bungee cage and rope leading to a ring of fire in the water. On the beach they are greated by this season's Ms. Big = Ramona from Survivor 1. She reveals the first mission which is the "Ring of Fire" where two castmates from each team will jump tandom down to the water in a middle of a ring of fire while holding onto as many balls as possible thoughout the jump. The team that has overall the most balls held throughout all the jumps wins. The winners will spend the night on the yacht with a gourmet meal and a masseur while the losers will have to spend the night outside on the island with a campfire and pre-packaged camper' meals. The Real Worlders take it with a total 40 balls to the Road Ruler's 32. James already starts with the Real World team is cheating. He claims that the Real World team starting deflating the balls before the Road Rules team did. The following day the cast goes into their next mission "Rope Courses" where the winner will gain 50 points and get the yacht for the night and the loser will get the campsite. The competition consists of team members going through 5 different rope courses carrying as many water balloons as possible and all white getting hit by wet nerf balls from below by the opposing team.
