Episode Summary

EDIT
Battle of the Opposite Sexes
AIRED:
It's Party Time...the cast is all getting drunk, dancing, and just having a good time. Off at their own table, Emily and James are enjoying eachothers company even more. They are both happy to be in Jamaica with eachother and both are just enjoying their relationship. The following morning, they receive their next mission on their phones. It says it will be at 12:30 and they must wear a shirt, shorts, and 2 undergarments. They already put two and two together and know they'll have to take off a article of clothing if they mess up at whatever they have to do. Tonya pulls Ruthie aside and lets her know that she wants the Inner Circle to send her home if she's at the bottom. That way another strange vote-off will not happen and they will be left with the strongest team they can have. They arrive at the mission site to find out they'll be doing "The Battle of the Opposite Sexes" game show. The guys will go up against the gals in a trivia like game show where if a person answers a question wrong, they'll have to take off a article of clothing. When a person gets a question right, their team will receive a tile. The team with the most tiles at the end wins a 'RAD' folding electric bike. The teams take alittle break before the game begins. Several girls are already taking themselves out of the competition cause they don't believe it's morally right for them to have to take their clothes off in a mission. 'Club Zero' as they end up naming themselves consists of Anne, Christina, Tonya, Ayanna, and Emily. Since Emily feels the competition is morally wrong, she believes her boyfriend James should feel the same way and pull himself out of the competition aswell. The other girls see the competition as if you don't know the answer to a question, then don't answer it and you won't have to take a article of clothing off. Since Emily has pulled herself out of competition she knows that Veronica who is in fourth place will move into the Inner Circle and possible vote her off. The Competition begins, James has decided to compete cause he knows if he is the only guy not to compete, he will be at the bottom of the scoreboard and will be sent home. The game goes along, and clothes continue to fly off the guys team. The girls team seems to be well clothed as they are answering questions correctly. At the end of the first half, the guys and girls decide to have one person answer all the questions, that way their team will end with the most tokens. The guys pick Jake and the girls pick Ellen. The second half of the competition, Jake does a major comeback. The final score comes out to Jake- 11, Ellen- 10. With Jake having the most tokens, the guys team wins the electric bikes, and Jake earns the Ion Lifesaver. At the scoreboard, the Inner Circles are announced- Girls 1)Ellen from Road Rules The Quest 2)Ruthie from Real World Hawaii 3)Veronica from Road Rules Semester at Sea Guys 1)Colin from Real World Hawaii 2)Mark from Road Rules 1 3)Jamie from Real World New Orleans Ellen takes over the top of the board and Ruthie falls to second. Since Emily did not participate, she fell out of the Inner Circle and Veronica took her spot. Blair is now at the bottom of the guys scoreboard and has accepted the fact that he will have to go home. Ruthie pulls Emily aside and asks how she feels. Emily is more hurt over everything that James competed after she asked him not to. She says she doesn't know if she can forgive him, but Ruthie tells her that she needs to understand that he's playing a game aswell. James gets pissed saying he has to put up with so much misery there and he starts to tear some of the curtains down in the men's villa. At the girls' Inner Circle, they talk about how this last mission has devided the girls' team in two between who competed and who did not. Even though Veronica would love to send Emily home, Tonya has said she will be leaving the following day either way. At the elmination ceremony, the girls' Inner Circle announces that they'll be sending Tonya home. Emily realizes how lucky she got it since Veronica wanted to send her home so bad. The guy's Inner Circle goes up, they have Jake come up and give out the Ion Lifesaver first. Jake actually decided to leave the competition earlier that day anyways because he wanted to go home. So, Jake gave the Ion Lifesaver to Blair who is in last place to save him. We end with Emily and James trying to reconcile. Emily comes to the fact that James had to compete or he would have been sent home, and she would much have him there in Jamaica with her then to give up a mission for her.moreless
