Episode Summary

EDIT
Rush Hour
AIRED:
We start off with Sean talking about how he met his wife Rachel on the first challenge- Road Rules: All Stars. He says they got married and have a beautiful daughter named Evita and another one on the way. He says he has huge debts with law school, and their bank account is pretty much running low. We also see Elka talking to her now fiance Walter. She says she loves him so much and can't wait to start her life with him. At dinner, each team is given a kid's puzzle called Rush Hour. This puzzle is the clue for their next mission. In the puzzle, there are cars lined up vertically and horizontal in a grid. The goal of the puzzle is to move the cars until you can get the specific colored car outta of the grid. Emily and Timmy feel they can kick butt at this competition. Playing the game, they get the car out first before everybody else. The following morning both teams are all still playing with the kids game. They receive a message on their phones that they'll be picked up at 9:45am for the mission. They arrive at the mission site to find an elarged version with real cars of the kid's game they been playing the whole time. The goal of the game is move the Saturn cars foward or backwards only until you can move the designated car out of the puzzle. The teams cannot bump, crash, or hit any other cars in the puzzle or they will be disqualified and receive 0 points. The team to do this the fastest wins two 2002 Saturns SC2 cars. While one team competes, the other teams will be hidden so they do not see the solution to the puzzle. Right before, they learn that some of the cars are stick shifts while others are automatic. This freaks out Coral & Mike who do not know how to drive a stick-shift car. The competition begins and the times are- 1)RW: Elka & Sean- 3:50 2)RR: Theo & Holly- 4:29 3)RW: Danny & Kelley- 7:22 4)RW: Mike & Coral- 9:57 5)RR: Dan & Tara- 10:21 6)RR: Timmy & Emily- Disqualified(Emily crashed into another car while backing up) With the winning time of 3min 50 secs, Elka & Sean take home the cars. Elka is overwhelmed with happiness that she starts crying as she takes her victory lap in her new car. Sean calls Rachel who starts crying on the other end. We end off with Sean and Elka so happy with their win.moreless
