Episode Summary

EDIT
Montezuma's Revenge
AIRED:
We start off with sounds of vomit in a toliet. It seems several of our cast has caught the good ol' classic Montezuma's Revenge. Becky goes to the hospital to come back with tons of medication. Norman hopes a good night of sleep will help Becky get better for the next mission, since this is their only chance of getting in the Inner Circle and staying to compete for the final Handsome Reward. Meanwhile, Mike and Tara grow closer. Mike explains "The Miz" to Tara. Tara explains to Mike that she just broke up with her boyfriend of 3 years only a week before coming to the challenge. Mike and Tara continue to flirt and play around outside where Tara pushes Mike into the pool and Mike picks up Tara and launches her into the pool. Mike doesn't understand the attraction cause they're complete opposits but they click. We then see two of them in the kitched trying to be secretive but the camera catches Mike doing a slick little hand across the breast move on Tara. The following morning a camera also catches Tara in Mike's bed. They're both asked in interviews what is going on and they both claim they're just friends. That evening, Mark and Eric lets the teams know the next mission will be the following day. It's called "Ladder of Doom" where each teammate will have to compete and complete the mission to earn points, which scares Dan & Tara cause that blew their guaranteed spot in the Inner Circle. This final mission also decides who is in the final Inner Circle and who will go and compete for the Chili's Cash. Tara is freaked out cause she believes she has no upper body strength. Emily is worried about Timmy and if he'll be able to compete tomorrow. Becky aswell is hoping she'll feel better and give her all tomorrow. Holly and Josh pump each other up saying they have a chance to break into that Inner Circle. Tara lets Mike know that she doesn't feel comfortable starting a new relationship now since she just got out of a serious one. The following morning Emily wakes up with Timmy's sickness. But over in the Real World house, Becky contacted a world-reknown healer over the phone who shot energy to her through the phone long distance. All teams are nervous since any team except Theo & Holly could be possibly going home. Right before the mission, Holly actually comforts and Tara and tells her she can do it. They arrive at the mission site to find a ladder strung between two clifts and dangling about 30 feet over waves crashing below. Mark and Eric congradulate everybody for making the "Sweet 16". They explain the "Ladder of Doom" as each team member will descend the ladder to right about the middle, get the flag thats hooked there and come back up. The team that does it the fastest wins A Vale Winter adventure getaway in Colorado. All the teams hug eachother and wish eachother good-luck! And off we go. Coral, Kelley, and Elka start off first. We see them descend the ladder and Coral starts wobbling a bit and then hear a scream...moreless
