"The Tiger Beat Shoot" -
episode begins with Joey, Corey, Sarah, and Andrew going
to an ice cream shop and bonding together. An employee
asks the players why are they being videotaped. One of
them answers they're a musical group called "Five Sticks
of Dynamite" and they're touring across the country.
After we've been shown the opening title sequence, we
see the players at home with Andrew playing the guitar
singing a 70's style song. Then Dawn comes in and tells
the players to bring out the baby oil as they go to the
backyard and see that Oscar is over there first
occupying the good seat. The players are being told that
two players will be eliminated. But first, they must
compete in a Tiger Beat Magazine challenge. Oscar splits
the players up into two teams of two; One team is made
up of Andrew and Corey while Sarah and Joey make up
their opponents. Andrew elects to be the photo director
while Sarah of the other team gets to be the model. Each
of the teams gets 60 seconds to take some photos for
their simulated Tiger Beat Magazine covers. They'll be
given tips from 70's star Leif Garrett who was one of
the starts who posed for said magazine. The setup seemed
intimidating for both of the teams. Once the photo
shoots were done, the teams are given proof sheets to
pick the photo that best represents their team.
Now their photos will be judged, but not by some of the
Tiger Beat personnel. Instead, their photos will be
judged by students at a high school auditorium. The
players are now feeling the embarrassment from some of
the students' laughter. After their large photos have
been displayed, the students cast their vote. Them the
teams go back to the house.
Oscar gives out the results which say Andrew and Corey
got 412 votes while Sarah and Joey got 380. Sarah and
Joey lost this challenge and they're on the chopping
block, now here's where the second surprise comes in.
The winning team must send one of their own to the
elimination round. They themselves choose Corey to join
Joey and Sarah for the next elmination game.
For this elimination game, the three players will be
eating as much of the crappy-tasting Spaghettiholes out
of their big bowls as they possibly can within two
minutes. At the end Joey ate the most of the
Spaghettiholes sending Corey and Sarah home.
While the eating contest was taking place, Andrew goes
with Dawn and her date (Mike Gordy) to a drive-in movie.
And Andrew gets to see them kiss, that's definitely a
prize in my book.
We now have Joey and Andrew who'll battle it out to win
the grand prize package on the next and maybe final
episode of MTV's The 70's House.
