Episode Summary

EDIT
Tough Love
AIRED:
The teams are excited cause they're off to London where the next part of the challenge will take place. Both teams receive new double decker buses with their pictures on the side. They start off by doing some site seeing. At lunch, Susie tells Emily that she really wants the money and she thinks the Road Rules team is more into the challenge for the friendships then the money.

They receive their next clue narrated by Timmy from Road Rules 2. He says they need to be pumped up and tough for the next mission. They arrive at the mission site and find out that they're taking part in a "Tough Guy" competition obstacle course that involves about everything that a body can handle including climbing, swimming, crawling, etc.

They start- Obstacle 1 - The Tiger Tail They have to climb up a net ladder and then go through a electrical fence that actually shocks James. Real World in the lead. Obstacle 2 - The Behemoth They have to climb up a tire ladder to a top of the tower and then cross a rope bridge to another tower. Julie falls and has to cross again. To Julie's luck, Susie has trouble getting across. Real World in the lead. Obstacle 3 - Fiery Holes & Mud Pits They have to climb through tire tunnels, jump across deep mud puddles, and walk over smouldering hay piles. Susie is already tiring and having trouble making it though. Real World in the lead. Obstacle 4 - The Swamp They have to tread through as deep as 5 feet mud river, which also includes swimming under a bridge. Susie needs help through the entire obstacle. Real World is in the lead. Obstacle 5 - The Deceiver They have to climb up a cargo net and then jump in some water that looks deep but ends up being about 2 feet deep. James jumps hard and almost breaks his legs. Real World is in the lead. Obstacle 6 - The Dragon Pool They have to traverse about 100 feet across a rope over a river. Dan falls several times letting Road Rules catch up. It's Dan against Road Rules now, the Real World team finally all hold a rope and steady it for Dan and he makes it across.

The Real World team runs across the finish line giving them another win and another $10,000. Dan is so happy he made it through that he breaks into tears and ends up winning the MVP. He spins the wheel and receives a Iomega MP3 package.

Susie realizes that she was being selfish and it's not about the money but about teamwork. She wouldn't have made it though that mission if it wasn't for the 5 other people on her team.moreless
