Tonight, it's a battle of beauty versus
brains as five beauties take on five geeks... and they ALL take on a
team of Hunters.

Each player is armed with a pack and
nothing else. As the game continues, Trey will release more Hunters
onto the play area. The objective: survive for 60 minutes. First one
to do that and find the exit point wins $25,000 plus $1000 for each
one of 25 money flags hidden on the game board.
Tonight's gameboard is Universal
Studios Hollywood and City Walk. At this moment, we'll remind you
that NBC Universal is the yada yada blah blah blah. Let's get to the

Challenge #1: Ice Breaker.
Inside frozen blocks of ice are boxes. Inside each box is a Freeze
Ray, which will incapacitate a Hunter for one minute. It's got a
one-time, one-Hunter use-by date, so use it wisely. You have seven
minutes to use ice picks, blow torches, and hammers to get your
Ready... Set... The Cha$e is ON!
While the guys whack haphazardly at
the ice, Brittanee seems to have a plan. She uses the icepick AND
the hammer together. She's the first to unlock her freeze ray and
has free reign of the game board, but not for long. Halfway
through the mission, Trey releases Hunter #1.... And HERE COMES THE
Back at the ice blocks, Kyle unlocks
his freeze ray and helps Larry with his... when Larry comes up and
steal's Kyle's. NICE.
The ladies stick together, but
Matthew gives up and Nick forges ahead... fogged up glasses and all.
Matthew is the only one without a Freeze Ray.
Whitney is holding onto a grudge...
and her freeze ray case. She's... not good at opening things.
Matthew says he's extremely stealthy.
Apparently not THAT stealthy, as Amazon catches a glimpse of the
dude... aaaaand he's gone before his first $1000. Ouch.
Trey's releasing another Hunter...
and it's T-Bo. And he's already got the beauties spooked... Never
mind the fact that he hasn't found one yet. Brittanee goes into
hiding. She has no idea where she is. And it doesn't help that a)
it's dark, and b) Amazon's looking right at you.
Oops. Too late. ELIMINATED. Let's
forget about her now. Meanwhile, the Runners are cleaning up on cash
flags. Kyle thinks he saw a Hunter. And he knows what to do... Run
in the other direction.
Bernadette is sighted by T-Bo... but
she says... FREEZE, dirtbag! She can't do it again, and just her
luck, here comes Amazon. ELIMINATED.
The Beauties pull Larry into the
fold. They hope to use him to test the water. He hopes to do the
same thing to them.
Amazon's on the hunt AGAIN... She
loses Kyle... and finds him... And... near miss... And direct hit.
ELIMINATED. Without using his Freeze Ray.
And with six players remaining, Trey
releases Kim onto the board.
Amazon's earning her pay tonight.
She's got Nick cornered. FREEZE! Meanwhile, the other five (and
Nick) get the next mission.
Challenge #2: Chains of Love.
In five minutes, beacons on your tech packs will start to flash. To
prevent that from happening AND unlock your Deflector, find someone
of the opposite sex and cuff yourself to them. As long as you stay
cuffed, the lights will not go on. Think of it as a first date... in
the dark... with handcuffs.
Niki & Larry are first. They get
Deflectors. Whitney and Lauren need to find geeks. Whitney finds
Haben, and... "Handcuff action?" Oh yeah. By the way, T-Bo's there,
too. He captures Whitney... and she forgets to use her Freeze Ray.
Haben says he doesn't need a stinking deflector.
Niki & Larry get to know each other.
Mission is now over. The consequences
for failure: five minutes of "Here I am!" light. The rewards for
success.. five minutes of "getting to know you sexy time".
T-Bo picks up Lauren's light... and
it's time to run. And just like some other before her... She forgets
about her Freeze Ray. ELIMINATED.
Mission 2 is over.
Clue to the Exit Point coming...
CLUE: Always make sure you're
steps away from winning.
That could be... the City Walk
escalators. Haben's at the halfway point.
Trey's releasing Scott now.
Meanwhile, Niki & Larry decide to stick together. And you thought it
Nick evaded Amazon once, but without
a tool, he has no other choice but to hide. That... Works? But not
for long. ELIMINATED. That leaves Haben, Niki, and Larry.
Larry tells Niki to keep her freaky
voice down. Hunters are closing in on both sides. And here comes
T-Bo. FREEZE, (^_^)hole! On the other end, Amazon... DEFLECTED!
Challenge #3: Flash Points. Go
to either Karl Strauss or Terminator 2: 3D and find a display of
flashing lights. Match the pattern of flashing lights with your
keypads to unlock Invisibility Glasses, which not only offer 2
minutes of invulnerability to Hunter attack, but also are quite the
There's a catch, though. There is a
Hunter locked in a cage at each station, and after five minutes,
they'll be released.
Larry & Niki find the first point,
Karl Strauss, where Grant is caged. Haben goes to T2:3D, where Icey
is caged. Haben gets his glasses first. Niki & Larry... Next. So the
mission is over, BUT the Hunters go live in five, four, three, two,
Grant sees his first kill... And Niki
Trey comes in with Exit Clue #2...
CLUE: Tonight's not a good night
to walk in the city.
So take some steps... and avoid City
Walk. Seems simple enough. Though Haben decides to STAY in City
Scott sees our happy couple... and
then loses them. And then finds them.. well, one of them... and
she's invisible. But now the two are separate.
Haben freezes T-Bo in his tracks.
Larry's asking for more clues. He's
not getting any more clues, but he's about to get a fistful of
Hunter. Or not. INVISIBLE!
Before Trey opens the Exit Point, he
has an offer of $3000 to the first person to drop out of the game.
Who'll be the first? It's Niki. She leaves the game with $3000.
EXIT POINT: Starway Escalator
First Runner to make it to the Exit
Point wins cash money. But you have to get there before 60 minutes
or else... not a drop. And, of course, you have to elude capture.
Larry deflects Amazon, but now has to
deal with Scott. Or not. She loses him. But not for long.
That leaves Haben, but he has to find
the Exit Point in 30 seconds. And outrun Icey in the process...
He.... does one. But it isn't the one he wanted. Today, no one has
found the Exit Point, so there is NO WINNER.
I guess beauty and brains can't
exclusively function well. Let's hope twin power wins out in the end
on the season finale. Until then... game over.
