"Welcome to the 70s" -
Brian Moore and I'm ready to do the time warp that sends
us back to the 70's. Let's meet the players...
They're all introduced by Bert Van Styles (played by Bil
Dwyer) who holds a classic-style microphone. Once the
intros are over, they meet Dawn (played by Natasha
Leggero). Right away the contestants now have to learn
the groovy new 70s slang. They also have to unload all
of their modern loot, from iPods and cell phones, to
makeup and beauty products. They'll all go into a vault
in which they'll be given back to a player when their
time in the house is up. The players then receive
70's-style clothing in which they didn't appreciate. The
player who eats, sleeps, and breathes the 70's more will
*An array of products from HP.
*A 2005 Volkswagen Beetle
*And a European vacation from STA Travel.
At some points during their time in the 70's house
they'll hear the ringing of a school bell, the players
must stop what they're doing and do the Hustle. As an
introduction, Dawn gives the players a quickie on the
Hustle. Dawn then escorts the players to another room.
This is where Oscar communicates their missions to the
contestants by virtue of a "Charlie's Angels" small
black box on a desk. Oscar notifies then that the first
challenge is a basketball tournament complete with
mini-shorts. The players are divided into two teams the
Rollers and the Dyn-O-Mites. The Rollers drive their
70's-style station wagon while the Dyn-O-Mites drive
their 70's style van to a High School gymnasium.
When the teams get there, Dawn gives them some more
information on the challenge. Each of the teams will
play against the 2005 High School basketball champions.
The team who scores the most points against the High
Schoolers wins this challenge. It's not about athletic
skills, it's about whose the most 70's. The Rollers go
first scoring absolutely no points. But to no surprise
the Dyn-O-Mites win with two points and their prize
is... a fondue party. As for the Rollers, they're all in
danger of being evicted from the house... and that's not
to be confused with the new Big Brother 6 house.
According to Oscar, he tells Andrew that the phrase "freakin'
awesome" is from the 80's and the word "ballers" is from
the terrible 2000s. He's one of the two players on the
chopping block. Then Oscar talks to Geo about how botox
treatments were not invented until the late 80s.
Andrew and Geo go to another room where they'll compete
in the first elimination contest involving the board
game "Operation". Each one will have one chance to grab
as many bones from the board as they can before
triggering the buzzer. Whoever grabs the least amount of
bones will be kicked out of the 70's House. Here's a
list of the bones that Andrew has grabbed.
1. Water on the Knee
2. Adam's Apple
3. Ankle Bone
4. Wish Bone
5. Butterflies in Stomach
Let's see how Geo did...
1. Ankle Bone
2. Spare Rib
Geo thought he had it in the bag until he got cocky and
triggered the buzzer after grabbing two bones. Therefore
he's back to his modern clothes as he's officially out
of the 70's House. The players learn that whatever they
do and talk is under a microscope. At the end of the
show, the remaining players do the hustle as they learn
another thing, they don't know what to expect.
We don't know what to expect either for the next episode
of MTV's The 70's House. Just keep watching and find out
who else will be sent back to the year 2005. Until next
week, hope for things that are groovy! Bye!
