Episode Summary

EDIT
Leaky River
AIRED:
Eric receives a call from home, his sister has been in the hospital for over a week with a horrible fever and the doctors still cannot figure out what is wrong. The following morning, they receive a clue on their phone stating that the next mission will be that day and they need to wear a swim suit, shorts, and bug spray. Ayanna knows she has to do the best she can cause since herself and a few others did not participate in the 'Battle of Opposite Sexes', their score has plummeted and they are in danger of being sent home. Anne, Christina, and Emily have started a group against Veronica. They believe she in nothing but negativity to the girls' team. Veronica believes even though the past several eliminations have been the lowest scoring girl, that won't last too much longer due to several "alliances" forming. They arrive at the mission site, Johnny congratulates them for making it through the first half and welcomes them to the second half. The mission is called "Leaky River". Each person will have to go across this steerup rope path drapped across the river. The team with the lowest combined time to get across the river wins Apple I-Book computers. And ofcourse the person with the quickest time wins the Ion Lifesaver. Blair knows he has to do his best since he has the lowest score on the guys team. They start and times are as follows- Veronica - Disqualified (Fell Off) Theo - Disqualified (Fell Off) Christina - Disqualifed (Fell Off) Melissa 9:45 Syrus 9:10 Anne 5:06 Genesis 4:36 Ellen 4:08 Blair 3:49 Lori 3:42 Colin 3:35 James 3:20 Shane 3:02 Mark 2:56 Ayanna 2:42 Antoine 2:42 Emily 2:32 Ruthie 2:30 Jamie 1:58 With the quickest time of 1:41 Eric wins the Ion Lifesaver, the mission, and the Apple I Books for the guys. Back at the scoreboard, the Inner Circles are announced- Girls 1)Ruthie from Real World Hawaii 2)Ellen from Road Rules The Quest 3)Melissa from Real World New Orleans Guys 1)Colin from Real World Hawaii 2)Mark from Road Rules 1 3)Jamie from Real World New Orleans Theo notices that since he fell and received no score for the mission, his main score has dropped big time and is now in last place. Blair edges out Theo by 2 points and is amazed at how lucky he is to still be there. The Girl Inner Circle meets, we don't really see who they're talking about but they come to a really quick decision. Veronica is expecting it to be her cause of the caddiness that the girl's team has. At the elimination ceremony, the girl's Inner Circle goes up and announces that they are elminating Christina since she has the lowest score. Ellen finally believes the girls team is at peace cause they are making decisions that don't cause a huge uproar. The guys Inner Circle goes up next and announces that they will be eliminating Theo since he is in last place. Eric goes up last and says he is giving the Ion Lifesaver to his sister in hopes that she gets better soon. We end with Christina and Theo saying their goodbyes and taking off.moreless
