Episode Summary

EDIT
Budding Romance
AIRED:
We start with another clue, this time narrated by Melissa from Real World New Orleans. They are told to go to a Fisherman's Wharf in Boothbay Harbor, Maine and wear bathing suits under their clothes. We start to learn about Rebecca and James past relationship experiences and what their desires are for future romances. We also find out that they think eachother are "cool". Fast foward to the mission, the first part consists of a "Lobster picking and eating" contest where the team that eats the most lobsters in 5 minutes wins, but the catch is their arms are tied together. Real World takes it with 29 lobsters eaten to the 28 that Road Rules eat. On the next part, "Lobster Crate Crawing". The goal is for each team member to put on the oil jacket, sow westo(hat), and hook a fish on their arm and then run across lobster crates that are tied together floating across the water. The team to have all their member to go across the crates and back the fastest wins. Road Rules takes the second part with Laterrain pulling up the tail and exausted after falling, hitting a corner of a crate, and losing his breath. Laterrian is taken to a ambulance where he's given oxygen. They are taken out on a boat for the last event which is the "Greasy Pole". There is a eight foot greased up pole hanging off over the water. A team member will crawl out place the flag at the end of the pole and then the next team member will go out, grab the flag and bring it back for the next person to take it right back out. This keeps going until the last person goes out grabs the flag and brings it back to the box. The team to do this the fastest, wins. Syrus and Christian are the only two that fall victim to the pole. But that doesn't hurt Real World from taking the prize home again. Kameelah was voted this mission's MVP and spins the wheel to win a FujiFilm Digital Camera package. We go on to find out more about Rebecca and James feelings to eachother. James and Rebecca go out for a walk where Rebecca tricks James into telling a french lady that he's a dog. And we go onto seeing Dan playing matchmaker between the two. We end the episode with James with his head on Rebecca's lap and Rebecca playing with his hair.moreless
