Episode Summary

EDIT
Seven Rings of Saturn
AIRED:
At the Girl's Villa, they learn on their phones that the next competition will be the following day and they must pair up in teams. The rule with the teams as the challenge goes along, is that once two people are teamed together for a challenge, they cannot be teammates again for the rest of the challenge. Immediatly the girls start to pair up, all while Amaya is taking a nap. The pairs end up with Amaya and Veronica left, but the problem is that they have already been paired. Ellen starts to complain about team unity when noone wants to give up their partner to team up with Amaya or Veronica. Rachel believes Ellen is making the situation bigger then it is. Tonya suggests Ellen should just sit back and let them figure it out cause supposedly Ellen is always trying to solve the problems. The following day, Eric makes some potion and rubs it on Colin's ankle in hope to numb it for he can make it through this next mission. Back at the girl's villa, Amaya says Veronica and her need a partner now. Ayanna explains she doesn't feel comfortable being a partner with Amaya since she claimed she needs to go home cause of family health issues. Tonya decides to just team up with Amaya to solve the problem and Rachel will pair up with Veronica. Ellen believes it wasn't fair that Ruthie or Emily didn't show up to their gathering to solve the pairing issue. We arrive at the mission site to find out the next mission will be "Seven Rings of Saturn". Johnny explains that each team will have to race around a ring of 5 Saturns hooked together on a "Merry-Go-Round" like system. Throughout the circle of cars, they're rings attached to the roofs. Each team must start out in a car with their seatbelts attached. Once the time has begun, they will unbuckle themselves and climb out the car window. After they are out, they will make their way around the circle of cars, climbing over each one while collecting the rings. Once they make it back to their lead car, they must place all the rings on a pole attached to the top of the car, then climb back in the car window, attach their seatbelts, and honk the horn. The team to do this the fastest without dropping any rings wins a Epiphone Guitar package. They start and the times goes as follows- Theo & Puck - 38 Seconds Mark & Colin - 41 Seconds Ruthie & Emily - 42 Seconds Ayanna & Lori - 43 Seconds Antoine & Shane - 43 Seconds Syrus & Jamie - 45 Seconds Genesis & Anne - 51 Seconds Melissa & Ellen - 54 Seconds Blair & Jake - 57 Seconds Veronica & Rachel - 59 Seconds James & Dan - Disqualified (Dan dropped a ring) Tonya & Amaya - Disqualified (Amaya dropped a ring) Christina & Aneesa - Disqualified (Aneesa dropped a ring) Yes & Eric - Disqualified (Yes dropped a ring) During the competition- *Dan falls badly off the top of one of the Saturns but seems to be fine! *Tonya twisted her ankle on one the cars joining Colin's club of the injured! *Jake drops a ring, but dives for it and catches it before it slid of the hood. *Melissa use her top to hold the rings. With the quickest time of 38 Seconds, Puck and Theo take home the guitars. They also win the Ion Lifesaver which is not shown in this episode (it's later given to Colin for braving the mission with a hurt ankle). The Inner Circles are announced- Girls 1)Ruthie from Real World Hawaii 2)Emily from Road Rules 2 3)Ellen from Road Rules The Quest Guys 1)Colin from Real World Hawaii 2)Jamie from Real World New Orleans 3)Mark from Road Rules 1 Tonya cries as she notices she is in last place and could be up for eviction. But she believes she fought for the team by choosing to pair up with Amaya. In the Girl's Inner Circle, Ruthie and Emily suggest evicting Amaya since she has family problems at home and why keep someone that will not be in it for the long run. Ellen brings up team unity and how Ruthie & Emily did not show up for the meeting. Emily tells her that she can't vote off her or Ruthie so why is she complaining. At the eviction ceremony, Ruthie goes up and announces that they will be sending Amaya home. Amaya says that she hopes they can have more team unity, she says she knows everyone is using their eyes and ears, but they should start using their hearts. On the guys side, Colin announces that the lowest scorer which this week was Yes is going home. Yes comes up and says he had doubts if he wanted to do this challenge since what happenend on the last one, but he said this one was 20 times better and wouldn't have changed a thing. Amaya & Yes say their goodbyes and ride off in the van. We end with Ellen and Tonya talking. Tonya believes that Ellen has put herself out there too much sticking up for herself or others and instead of it coming out as a good thing, it only seems to be hurting her. Ellen has voweled to stop being the crusader!!!moreless
