"Climb That Mountain" - July 12

We start at 6:27 AM in the morning when the players are sleeping until they get a rude awakening by the school bell. The players once again do the Hustle and then later have a 70's-style breakfast that includes Eggo waffles.

Once breakfast has been served, the players them meet Dawn dressed in a leotard. They then get word from Oscar that they'll be competing in a crucial 70's disco showdown. The group will be divided into two teams, the Dudes and the Chicks. The players then dress themselves in leotards and other 70's style dancewear as they drive their vehicles into a dance studio. That's where they meet Denny Terrio who was in the original "Dance Fever" series and has choreographed the disco dances for the late 70's movie "Saturday Night Fever". Andrew thinks the guys are on top of the dancing. The Chicks are having a hard time getting things together.

When practice time is up, the players get into their threads and go into a nightclub thinking disco. But they get screwed with a modern, hip-hop dance club and they all blame "The Man", Oscar for this trickery. The Dudes and the Chicks will dance against the club's own Hollywood Troopers. Each of the teams dance to non 70's music while some of the club's dancers laugh at the players. In the end, the Hollywood Troopers win, but it's up to Denny to see who the real winners are.

Back at the house, Oscar is told by Denny that the Dudes won the disco dance challenge and they all win a chance to customize their T-shirts. As for the Chicks, they're all on the chopping block. First Oscar selects Hailley because she did some breakdancing which is not 70's dancing. Then Oscar chooses Lee because she purchased contraband from the 2000s including hair gel. One of them will be kicked out of the 70s house after this next elimination challenge.

Hailley and Lee play a game called "Climb That Mountain" which is hosted by Bert Van Styles. And the person who gives clues is none other than Jimmy J.J. Walker from "Good Times". Each player will be given 60 seconds to guess subjects by the clues given by Jimmy. For example, if Jimmy says Greg, Marcia, Peter, etc. then the player could say "The Brady Bunch". Whoever gets the most points stays in the house while the other gets evicted. Lee goes first and since they're both using the same set of subjects, Hailley will be going to an isolation booth.

On Lee's turn, she figured out that "Maude" and "Welcome Back, Kotter" were all TV Shows/Sitcoms and managed to score only one point. Hailley goes last and gets the first puzzle relating to TV Shows/Sitcoms. She then guesses automobiles correctly from the clues Cobra and Beetle before time expires. Hailley wins 2-1 sending Lee back to 2005.

Tune in next week for another visit to the 70's house to find out who's next to be sent back to the present. Goodbye folks!
