Episode Summary

EDIT
TJ Lavin is backed to welcome 20 Real World, Road Rules and Fresh Meat vets to a challenge like no other - The Island. He dumps them off a boat so they can swim to their new home - a "Swiss Family" type house built on a deserted beach in Panama with only rice, meat and fish to eat. The group goes stir crazy as TJ reveals none of the rules other than the island across the way contains a treasure chest and only four people will use a boat they will build along the challenge to get to it. US Army Air Drops will happen ever so often to drop off more pieces to the boat as well as supplies for their camp. After two days of partying, fighting and flirting - TJ finally returns to let them on how the game will be played. The group will have to decide on three people to go into a "face-off" challenge where one person will come out victorious and earn a key while the other two will have to beg and plead to the group to choose them to stay and win a key while the other goes home with nothing. Abram volunteers to go in as well and Kenny. The two feel that a girl should go in with them but no one volunteers. The group votes and they choose Tonya followed too closely by Ashli. They learn the face-off is "Leaning Tower" where they must swim out to retrieve 12 pegs that will help them climb a telephone pole with a bell at the top. The first to the top wins a key which ends up being Abram (he also wins a Zune Media Player). Tonya and Kenny face the voting panel where the vote ends up being 14 to 3 to send Tonya home giving Kenny the other key.moreless
