Episode Summary

EDIT
Rollerball Resurrection
AIRED:
We open up with Real World partying cause of all their wins. They receive the next clue which is narrated by Flora by Real World Miami. They're told that they will need to be rolling well and not drop the ball. Christian and Laterrian have a communication barrier and Christian blames it on Latterian's "jive" talking while Laterrain blames Christian for being from Norway. They arrive at a warehouse only to find out it's the movie set for the movie "Rollerball" They finally notice that they're standing next to the two stars - LL Cool J and Chris Klein. The two stars take them over to meet with the stunt coordinator to learn how to inline skate on a big ol course. They get all geared up and watch some professional skaters do some impressive stunts, all while hoping they won't have to try any of those stunts. They go out on the track and play out alittle bit trying to perfect their skating. Meanwhile, Christian is doing laps around everybody showing off that he is a skilled skater. The stunt coodinator call it a day and they take their busses to a camp ground. On the way, Christian makes a comment about having big lips and nose and that he must have some "black" in him. Laterrian lets him know that could be taken as a severe insult to a african american person. The following day they learn that their mission will be doing skating stunts from the movie. They first one is Rollerball relay. The goal is to go around the track and hit buttons placed all through out the track, the team that can do this the fastest wins. Road Rules takes makes it through the fastest winning the first half. The next part is the "Motorcycle pull" where they go through the track launched by a motorcycle and hit as many light worth different points. If they fall, they receive 0 points. The points went as Syrus(25), Emily(0), Rebecca(0), Kameelah(5), James(0), Dan(20), Jamie(55), and Christian(55). The last part is "The Spine" where each team picks one skater that they feel will do the best. Road Rules picks Christain while Real World picked Jamie. They job is to go down a ramp and up a spike that has points along the way, the higher they hit with their skates the more points they receive. Jamie goes first and gets 80 points, Christian follows with 80 points aswell. Jamie goes again and gets 30 points, while Christian gets another 80 points giving Road Rules their first win. Ofcourse the MVP goes to Christian, where he won a Sega Dreamcast. Also, the director of Rollerball gave Christian a part in the movie. Real World feels like they can't let Road Rules get a winning streak. Christian is happy to have Ayanna and Latterian on the trip because he believes they're teaching him along the way. Laterrain feels that Christian can do not wrong cause he can always fall back on his excuse that he is from Norway. At the end of the episode we flash foward 3 months to Christian on the set of Rollerball enjoying the experience.moreless
