AIRED:
At Breakfast, they are told to pack up their bags cause they are moving back to the villas and the next mission will be at 5pm that evening. They are told to wear sneakers, no bare-feet or sandals. Each team has one cell phone to share and finally the service has gone back up since the Hurricane. They all fight to see who could take turns calling back to civilization first. Holly says that even though her team believed she would crumble without Chadwick, het determination has only doubled since his eviction. Stephen confronts Coral to let her know there will be no more effort on his half to try and be friends with her, but all he asks is that he'll be civil with her aslong as shes civil with him to make it through the final 3 weeks. Coral tells him that she doesn't understand him and doesn't like him and if he'll just leave her alone, she'll be happy. Coral says she feels sorry for Lindsey to have to be paired up with this weirdo. Road Rules tries to make a pack like the Real World team but Holly shoots it down stating she doesn't trust the other team-mates. They arrive back at the villas just in time for the next mission. They walk down to the mission site where they find a crane holding up two ropes with balls tied about every 5 feet. The goal is to climb as high as you can get in three minutes. The more balls you past, the more points your team gets. The team with the most points gets a $20,000 shopping spree at "Time Beat For Teens.Com" Each set goes and the score is as follows- 1)RW Danny= 12 Kelley= 21 Total= 33 2)RR Theo= 18 Holly= 13 Total= 31 3)RW Mike= 13 Coral= 13 Total= 26 4)RW Norman= 15 Becky= 10 Total= 25 4)RR Timmy= 17 Emily= 8 Total= 25 5)RW Sean= 14 Elka= 9 Total= 23 5)RR Dan= 19 Tara= 4 Total= 23 6)RR Josh= 12 Holly= 9 Total= 21 7)RR Adam= 17 Jisela= 3 Total= 20 8)RR Chris= 9 Belou= 8 Total= 17 8)RW Mike= 11 Flora= 6 Total= 17 9)RW Stephen= 7 Lindsey= 9 Total= 16 With the help of Kelley's amazing climb, Danny & Kelley take the prize. They arrive at the board to find out the Inner Circles are- Road Rules 1)Theo & Holly from Road Rules Maximum Velocity Tour 2)Emily & Tim from Road Rules 2 3)Dan & Tara from Road Rules Northern Trail Real World 1)Sean & Elka from Real World Boston 2)Danny & Kelley from Real World New Orleans 3)Mike & Coral from Real World Back 2 New York Lindsey tells Stephen that "if" they're there tomorrow, they gotta kick some butt. But Stephen says they should be there tomorrow, since the agreement made was to vote off the lowest team. He says that why he believes the agreement is shady even though each of their signatures are on it. Belou expects to be voted off tonight, but Holly says they're in the worst spot cause they're in 4th place and so far Road Rules has voted off the 4th place team every time. She hopes they're finally gonna play the game right! In the Real World Inner Circle, Sean brings to the table two teams. Mike & Flora who are in last place or Stephen & Lindsey due to everybody having problems with Stephen. Kelley brings up that Lindsey brings so much happiness and spirit to the Real World team and she believes that over-powers Stephen negativity. Coral brings up that Stephens negative is affecting her and she believes it affects the team as a whole. In the Road Rules Inner Circle, Theo & Holly want to continue voting out the 4th place team, while the other two teams believe they should vote out the lowest- Chris & Belou. Tara belives they might have just screwed themselves cause they could have got rid of the team that was the closest to kicking her team outta of the Inner Circle, but she went with what she believes is the fair choice. We end with Norman saying there must be something wrong cause the Real World Inner Circles usually make their decision fairly quickly and this one is taking the whole hour. We leave with Kelley crying saying she can't be a part of the vote that eliminates her friend Lindsey.moreless
