Episode Summary

EDIT
Race To The Finish
AIRED:
We start off with James and Rebecca on a walk. Rebecca mentions that she loved James at the beginning of the challenge and now that the Road Rules team continuously loses, she finds his hard to be around. James mentions that he is tired of losing and doesn't want to be around anyone, Rebecca or his team.
They receive a clue on their phones that they're heading to California. On the van ride to the next mission, both teams are playing with each other. Road Rules is bound to take this last mission while Syrus says that he is leading the Real World team to victory.
They arrive at a race track out in the desert to find "Raced-Up" Toyota Celicas for each of them. Their mission mayor arrives and announces that their last mission will be "Toyota Motorsports". There will be two events, the team with the best times overall wins the last $10,000 Monster.Com paycheck.
Event #1: Skid Pad
Four people from each team are chosen to race their car into a wet area of the track and then skid the car 360 degrees. After the skid they must then drive the car into a cone garage. Each person to successfully do this wins 25 points for their team.
Real World
Dan- 25 Points
Kameelah- 5 Points (skids into cones)
Julie- 25 Points
Rebecca- 25 Points
Road Rules
James- 25 Points
Christian- 20 Points (not a full skid)
Michelle- 25 Points
Susie- 25 Points
After Event #1, Score is-
Road Rules 95 Points
Real World 80 Points
Event #2: Lamanse Race
The remaining two team members must compete in a pass off race. The first driver will run to the car where they have to change into a race suit and then jump into the car. They will complete one lap around the track and then come into the pit. The other team members will ten have to jack up the car, change the tire, and wash the window. Once that is complete, the other driver can jump in and race. They must complete one lap and each team that crosses the finish line will receive 100 points. The team that crosses second will be deducted one point for every second they are behind. So, in order for Real World to win they must cross the finish line atleast 15 seconds ahead of Road Rules.
Road Rules- Laterrian and Emily
Real World- Jamie and Syrus
Both cars stay pretty consistent through the whole race, Syrus pulls a lead over Emily right at the end and crosses the finish line first. It looks like the difference may be close to 15 seconds.
The mission mayor announces the score, one point difference-
Road Rules- 179 points Real World- 180 points
Real World takes the last mission and the last $10,000 Monster.com paycheck.
Real World parties as two Strecth Hummer limos pulls up and out comes Romona from Survivor 1 who was the mission mayor on the first mission of this challenge. She tells them that the limos will be taking them out to camp the night and their final mission will take place tomorrow for the Handsome Reward- Toyota Celicas for each of the winning team members.
James tries to psyche up the losing Road Rules team. He says that Road Rules has never lost a Handsome Reward. He also says that 6 Toyota Celicas total the amount that the Real World team has won and if Road Rules wins the final mission they make up for all that they have lost.
It's mission day, they're farther out in the 100 degree desert. The mission is a rally course of about 1 mile in length. Each team has a different course, but both are equal in length and terrain. The teams must push a Toyota Celica until they find a gas can midway through the course, then they can gas the car up. One person may drive the car from there on, but the other team mates must run along side the car. The team to make it through their course and cross the finish line first wins the Toyota Celicas.
Road Rules decides to have Susie ride and steer the car while the others push. Real World all push while Kameelah has a arm through the window steering because they don't want any extra weight in the car.
It's a close finish but Real World crosses the finish line first winning the brand new Toyota Celicas.
Both teams through interviews share their experiences and all are happy to take part in the Extreme Challenge.moreless
