"Five Sticks of Dynamite" -
MTV's The 70's House Recap goes to some of the crew at
GSNN who have been at the Game Show Congress. Mad props
yo! (C-Note: I expect you to be partying with us next
year. Gordon will not take no for an answer... TRUST
We start the show off with the five remaining tenants
taking a look a magazine with a picture of Madonna on
the cover, an Nintendo NES video game system, and a pair
of Air Jordans. They were not fooled because they know
that these objects are not from the 70's.
Dawn then shows up with a keyboardist named Rob Jackson
to set up the next challenge. This involves starting up
a band and Rob talks about himself being in a few 70's
bands including Velvet Flowers. The players don't know
any of the said band's hits. Linda mentions how much she
misses hip-hop, but it's not the time to worry about
that. The team has 15 minutes to put together a song.
Once time was up, the team gets into their new,
70's-style, rock-and-roll duds which include red tight
pants. The band they named themselves is called "5
Sticks of Dynamite".
The team goes to an unknown location and upon their
arrival, they receive funny looks on some onlookers.
After the team performs their song, the audience will
then cast their vote by putting in fake, orange, "George
Washingtons" in bucks with their respective names. The
player who receives the most votes wins the challenge.
After the song was over, the audience gave some sympathy
votes but overall, the challenge ends in disaster.
Back at the house, Oscar tells the team that Sarah won
the challenge with $22 in fake money. She gets to do
some pottery making as a prize with a professional. As
for the other players, they hear some bad news. Oscar
puts Corey up for elimination because he had a low score
of $4 in fake money. Oscar also puts Lynda on the
chopping block because of her unthoughtful mention of
her e-mail address which is a no-no in this game.
They'll have 60 minutes to study up on their 70's music.
Corey and Linda play the next elimination challenge
called "What's That Song?". And once again Bert Van
Stiles hosts and a three-piece house band is used. The
players' job is to identify the songs of the 70's played
by the house band. It's a best-out-of-three contest and
whoever scores the most points stays in the house. In
the first song, no one could figure out that it was
"Love Will Keep Us Together" by Captain & Tennille. In
the next song, both players didn't guess it was "Magic
Carpet Ride" by Steppenwolf. For the final song, Corey
correctly guessed that it was "Superstition" by Stevie
Wonder. Corey wins it one to zip, and Lynda is the next
one to be kicked out of the house.
And then there were four; Joey, Corey, Sarah, and
Andrew. Which of whom will be sent back to the present,
find out next time on MTV's The 70's House.
