"Sailors" - August 2
One of these remaining
eight players will be the next to kicked out of MTV's
The 70's House. Yes I said eight, but I said nine
players in a previous recap. My apologies for that tiny
The gang feels a little uncomfortable and not to mention
bored, after living in the 70's bubble for a while. None
of the players have ever used a record before. One of
the players really misses Dave Matthews Band a lot.
talks really loud on the phone which annoys the other
Soon, Dawn enters the house wearing a sailor's outfit.
Then Oscar tells the players they're going on a cruise
on a boat for good vibes and romance. She then separates
the crew into two teams, the red team and the blue team.
Jami leads the Red Team with Sarah, Andrew, and Corey.
Joey leads the Blue Team with Lynda, Ruben, and Ashley.
After the entire crew gets dressed, they're thinking
they all look like porn stars.
Dawn and the players then go to a huge cruise ship. For
this next challenge, they'll be playing a game of
matchmaker. There are 16 people on the ship with a halve
of a heart on their shirts. The objective of the teams
is to find the correct match of their male or female
mates. Up to
eight matches are possible and the team with the most
correct matches wins this challenge. Only the team
captains decide which mates they think make the correct
At the end of this challenge, the Red Team made four
correct matches and the Blue Team made only one. The red
team has obviously won this challenge...and now, they're
off to the Luau.
Over at the Luau, we hear that the Red Team has won a
70s-style lunch at Benihanas. The Blue Team gets has two
of their own players up on the chopping block by Oscar.
Oscar first puts up Joey mentioning that the captain
always goes down with the ship. Oscar also puts Ruben up
because he called a friend about "Temptation Island".
Unfortunately, that's a TV show that wasn't on in the
70's. These two players then take part in the next
elimination challenge where they'll play Tiki limbo.
It's time who see who'll get low and who'll get lost.
Both players start off great in Round 1 and have got the
groove going in Rounds 2 and 3. But when we get into
round 4, Ruben fails to clear the bar getting him
After all the players get back home, Ruben packs up and
heads back to 2005. The next day, the seven remaining
contestants have their lunch at Benihana's, where they
meet with Mike Gordy. At their duration of lunch, Mike
gives advice on why elbows on the table means elbows on
Mike feels depressed when his family left him. For the
duration of this reward he's stuck with them.
With seven players left, who'll be the next one to by
kicked out by the man? That not-so-groovy question will
be answered next time in MTV's The 70's House.
