Episode Summary

The Joint is Jumping
We start back with Janet still freaking out at the top. Her hands have formed into fists and they won't open. The Bungee Master tells her that she is having some sort of spasms. She still wants to jump but he tells her to go back down, rest a little, and she can come back up.

Back on the boat, Kefla and Roni start freaking out that it isn't fair that Janet got to come back down. The Bungee Master finally stops all the fighting by telling them that it wasn't her choice to come back down, it was his.

Kayle goes up and gets no rings. Nathan tells Beth and Montana that if Anne gets any rings they're gonna have to jump and they refuse. Anne jumps and gets one ring giving Road Rules a one ring lead. Janet finally recovers and jumps, she doesn't get a ring, but that doesn't matter to the team who is happy that she faced her fear. The pressure has come down to Beth and Montana, Montana doesn't want to jump cause it's her worst fear and Beth doesn't want to do a one legged jump. The team seems to be blaming Beth and sorta giving Montana some slack which aggravates Beth. They both finally refuse and the win goes to Road Rules again.

They receive their next clue which was hidden in a large deck of cards- "Get your creative juices flowing, it's gonna get really dicey in Vegas". The teams are excited to be visiting the "City of Sin".

The Bungee master also told them that the loser team has received a new vehicle and that "Bessie" will not be returning. They all fear that it's gonna be something worse then "Bessie" but are excited to find out it's just a regular RV.

They arrive in Vegas and head to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. They meet up with the mission mayor. He says they don't have a act to play their main stage and he hopes to can fill the spot. The teams are all excited to be "Playing Vegas". They are told that each team will have to do a 5 to 10 minute skit of anything they want to do and they will have to perform it live to a packed us the following night at 10pm. The most entertaining performance will win a minute in the Money Chamber.

Since they are in Vegas, the teams decide to go out and party. The following morning, they all start to prepare. The Real World team is gonna spoof a talk show while the Road Rules team is gonna do a somewhat talent show. They each go out and purchase costumes, Real World sees the Road Rules bus parked outside a store. Beth rushes in and takes the bear getting back in Real World's possession.

The time has come and everyone is ready. David comes out first and warms up the crowd with part of his standup routine. Road Rules comes out first, they do a revue. Noah acts like Elvis, Roni acts like a crazy cheerleader, Kefla acts like James Brown, and Mark acts like a white rapper. Anne and Kayle's part is not shown.

Real World comes out next and spoofs the Jerry Springer show. They blow away the audience with the skit and even end with a song. The judges decide and give Real World their first win this challenge.moreless
