Episode 4.24 (Reality All-Stars) - February 28
The snow is coming in...but it's getting all hot and
bothered as reality stars invade the set! They are here
to get a dose of reality....Fear Factor style. Let's see
who gets to extend their 15 minutes of fame for an
additional 2 hours...
Ryan Sutter ("The Bachelorette"). He wants to
show Trista that he can bring in the bacon too. And yes,
he still loves Trista. AwwwBarf.
Ethan Zohn ("Survivor"). He won a million dollars
in Survivor 3, and he is the boyfriend of another
...who would happen to be Jenna Morasca, who won
her million in Survivor 6. Her and Ethan have a bet as
to who can last longer. We shall see...
Nikki McKibbin ("American Idol")- She came in
third in American Idol. Do you remember her? No? Well,
if you don't live in or near Michigan, neither does
anyone else - but she may need the money more than
anyone else, which makes her a threat.
Reichen Lemkuhl ("The Amazing Race"). He came in
first with Chip.... who he is no longer an item with.
Awwwww. I'm sure he can cheer himself up with $50,000.
Oma...rosa... (aka Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth,
"The Apprentice.") Omarosa is gunning for the money.
Omarosa warns Joe that she is gunning for his job.
Omarosa is gunning to... talk a lot. Can she put the
money where her mouth is?
CHALLENGE 1: Rope Rules: We start with the people
putting the money where their legs are as we begin with
the first stunt. All you have to do is to grab as many
flags as they can while traversing a rope. Have we said
that there will be a helicopter overhead to stop you
from progressing? The man and the woman who win this
will win a Capital One credit card worth $20,000. Sure,
none of them need the money. Suuuuuurrrrre...
Omarosa, not satisfied with having plaster in her hair,
is now worried about having water in her hair. Jenna
goes first, as she talks about her having a job as a
spokesperson for Survivor. Wha? She gets 4 before
falling off and getting a nasty leg bruise from hitting
Joe talks about how all of them have won money... except
Nikki, who won squat except a side note as the woman who
knocked off Tamyra Gray in the first season of American
Idol. Omarosa is talking about her stocks as she and Joe
get into the first (of I'm guessing many) war of words.
Omarosa says that people are intimidated by
strong-willed aggressive women, hence she is painted as
the villain. As she gets into her swimwear that
looks...well...painted, her fellow competitors say that
she's just there for the exposure, with Joe adding that
she is now professional TV tourer Omarosa. They make fun
of her as she is going across, but Jenna isn't laughing
as Omarosa beats her and grabs the 6th flag in 3:44. She
goes for 7, but she falls in the water and gets cut up.
She says that $20,000 can buy a lot of antiseptic...
...but she to hope that she can get past Nikki, who is
up next. She says that since 2001, she has her own
Karaoke company and performance organization. She now
has some more money to sponsor it, as she grabs flag #7.
A visibly upset Omarosa can only watch as she sees the
money snatched from her. Nikki is excited, as Joe adds
that Clay Aiken probably couldn't do it. Heh.
It's time for the guys to try the stunt, and they are
all hoping to be the last person to go. Unfortunately
for Ryan, he has to go first. Fortunately for him, he
gets them all in a decent time of 3:33, setting the bar
Can Ethan beat that? He says that with the million that
he's won, he has started a charity foundation to help
kids with AIDS, and adds that anything that he wins will
go straight to that charity. Joe is impressed with
Ethan's well-wishing - but not impressed with Ethan's
completion time of 4:45. He still boasts to Jenna that
he did better than her - but he won as much as she did.
Reichen is up - and he says that he will do his best,
adding that this will be a lot tougher than the hardest
thing he did on the Race - eating a live octopus. Uhhh...yeah,
I think they can find something tougher for you to eat
than an octopus. For example, this stunt...which he
barely gets done in 4 minutes. That leaves Ryan with the
$20,000, and he joins Nikki in getting the first prizes.
So after the stunt, Omarosa gets into the Limo and yells
at them. The next morning, Omarosa keeps them waiting in
the limo for an extra 30 minutes (Gasp!). All of the
people want to send her home - NOW! Omarosa says that
everyone is gunning for her - and that's the way it
CHALLENGE 2: Fear Bachelor: The way it goes for
this stunt is that Joe grabs a bunch of roses for a
'Rose Ceremony'. Heh. All you have to do is to is...
1. Be handcuffed to a tank
2. Unscrew a box while being handcuffed
3. By the way, African Boas are biting your hand while
you are doing this
4. Then Grab worms and stuff them in a blender
5. Convey the blended worms to a cylinder - with his
6. When the worms passes the line, you can unhandcuff
7. And jump into a dumpster filled with worms
8. Inside there is another container of blended worms...
9. Which you must drink...
10. ....which stops the clock and ends the stunt.
That long enough for you?
The slowest guy and girl see their 15 minutes end in...
Ryan goes first - and he gets someone to cheerlead for
him. It's....Trista! She comes out to give out support,
and although she loves that he is on the show (since he
watches it all of the time), she would never be on it
herself and she is here for support (though Ryan warns
her not to gag). With the support of Trista, Ryan
completes it in 2:43 - and then Trista gives her a
mouth-to-mouth kiss. "That's true love," blurts Omarosa.
Reichen goes up next. He is wearing his Amazing Race
shorts. No one pops up to support him (to the relief of
Reichen, who didn't want to see Chip), but maybe they
should have, as he is taking his time on opening the
worms. He gets it done in 3:07, which is decent, but not
as good as Ryan, who is safe.
It's down to Ethan, who has his own support with Jenna.
Nikki says that her sister, who was on Love Cruise (WHA?),
says that Reichen will win the whole thing, so she's
rooting against Ethan. This, of course, irks Ethan's
girlfriend Jenna, who says that Ethan will win. Joe asks
Nikki to sing a song, which she does. Omarosa's
reaction? "Now I know why she didn't win American
Idol.'" I hate to say this, but I side with Omarosa.
Nikki: "It's easy to say you suck when you have no
Jenna gets into a cat fight - with Reichen, who says
that Ethan will send him home. She is right, as she
yells at Ethan all the way through the stunt. Ethan's
time... 1:46, as he easily takes first and sends Reichen
packing. Maybe Reichen, who called it a relief to only
have 2 days of hell instead of 4, should have had
someone supporting him, since he was the only one who
didn't have support - and is the first person to go
Nikki says that she will do well at this stunt. Omarosa
says too, because, 'she's used to living in trash cans'.
OUCH! They can continue to talk trash as Nikki says that
Omarosa won't even finish the stunt. Nikki starts out
slow in completing her stunt, as the snakes are chomping
down on ham (did I say that? shame on me...). It takes
Nikki almost 1:30 to get past the snakes and she is
taking her sweet time. She gets it done in a fairly long
4:37, and it may be that the only way that she is going
to advance is if Omarosa quits.
Omarosa won't go near Nikki, who is afraid that she will
fling mud on her. Errr...you are going to be getting in
the mud, so why not start now - like what Jenna is doing
as Ethan draws a good luck charm on her and tries to
convince Trista to eat a worm. The eating part doesn't
work, but Joe tells her that if she eats 5 nightcrawlers,
$1,000 will go to her favorite charity. Omarosa says
that she'll do it too, but Trista says that she will do
it - and donate the money to Ethan's charity.
Trista...drinks the worms, and $1,000 goes to Ethan's
charity, as Omarosa adds that she will not punk out of
doing the stunt and an agape Ryan can't believe that
Trista ate worms. Heh.
Did Ethan's voodoo mark help Jenna? Well, it didn't help
her beat Ethan's time, and it's not going to help her
beat Nikki as she completes it in 5:09. Omarosa is up
next, and all of the sudden, she is nice - to a point.
"The whole villain thing is paying my bills." She does
say that if Trista can drink worms, then she could do
this stunt, adding that the mind games will be working
to her advantage, Trista thinks that if Omarosa couldn't
handle it before, she won't be able to handle it now,
adding that she isn't going to finish the stunt.
Well, let's see what Omarosa does. She starts... by
screaming that the snakes are biting her. The difference
between her and the other two girls, though, is that
instead of just bitching about the snakes, she is doing
the stunt, and she is going quicker than the other two
girls. A stunned Jenna and Ethan look on as Omarosa
destroys both women's scores with a mark of 4:05. Joe
says that maybe the Donald wouldn't have fired her if
they saw that - but Joe has to fire Jenna. She gives
Ethan a goodbye hug, but says that she will be back to
root on her Survivor. AwwwwBarf.
As Omarosa and Nikki continue to trade barbs at each
other, we proceed to the next stunt for the show. Ethan
will do this for Jenna, adding that Omorosa and Nikki
have big mouths, which is why they completed the stunt
quicker. Omarosa starts into Nikki and gets into her
personal life, which gets Nikki off-kiltered,
threatening to punch her out, but that would have her
forfeit the money, so she won't.
CHALLENGE 3: I'm a Reality Show Star, Get Me Out of
Here!: Radically changing the subject, Joe discusses
the next stunt, which will have all four of them trying
to get out of a cage with 4 locks. Whoever gets out of
the tank the quickest will win a 2 weeks vacation to
Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. Because Omarosa
can't swim, this will not be an elimination contest -
which upsets Nikki, as she would love to see Omarosa go.
Well, she won't be going anywhere - not to Punta Cana,
and not to the vacation.
Ethan goes first - and he doesn't get very far before
quitting. Omarosa says that it's a good thing that by
living in the hood, she couldn't swim, because she would
have gotten freaked out. Nikki wants to send Omarosa a
postcard from Punta Cana, but she'll only be able to do
it from her house, as she quits as well. If Ryan can do
it, he will win the trip to go with his $20,000... but
he doesn't, and you can add this one to the list of
contestant-killers. No trip for the Survivor, the Idol,
or the Bachelor.
Who will win the $50,000? Nikki says that she will
scream and lose her voice when she beats Omarosa, who
says that she is holding all of the mental cards. "At
the end, I will be the Fear Factor champion."
CHALLENGE 4: A-Moving-Ramp Idol: To be the Fear
Factor Champion, you have to drive a car over a moving
ramp as many times as you can over a moving ramp until
you wipe out or run out of room. Whoever does this the
most is the champion and wins the money...as well as the
trip that wasn't won in the last stunt.
Omarosa is the first person selected to do the stunt.
While the other three people are rooting for her demise,
she did quite well - 4 completions in 1:02. She said
that it was the most fun she has ever had, adding that
Ethan will try to get revenge for Jenna. That is going
to be very tough to beat.
Ethan says that he will do his best, as Jenna warns him
that if he loses, she will break up with him. Ethan also
gets 4 in....0:52.5 seconds. The relationship with Jenna
is saved as Joe fires Omarosa. Nikki is thrilled as
Omarosa leaves, but she says that Fear wasn't a factor
for her. She is right, adding that it won't be the last
time America sees her - and she giggles as she leaves.
A now-inspired Nikki says that she will beat Ethan. Joe
adds that if they stuck Omarosa on the hood, that Nikki
would go even faster. The problem was that Nikki may
have been thinking that Omarosa was under the car - she
gets three, but swerves on the underbearings of the car
and stalls out. She cries as she leaves, but she does
leave with $20,000 - and the satisfaction that Omarosa
will not win the show.
Who will win the show? It's all down to Ryan, as Trista
comes down to support him. Ryan would prefer Tristan to
run the stunt, but she can only root with Jenna as she
and Ethan watches by the sidelines. Ryan is well above
Ethan's pace, and he has enough time to try to get a
fifth one. That one doesn't count, but his time of
completing four was 48 seconds. Ethan throws his arms in
desperation, but they are all good sports and hug each
other before Ethan and Jenna depart. Ryan has now won
two reality shows, grabbing $70,000 and a trip to the
Dominican Republic. The bigger reward? A hug from
Trista, who he swings around like a rag doll. AwwwwBarf.
Next week - We get twins who ...sing? We'll tune in for
seven days to see if Simon Cowell - or the twins - can
stomach what Fear Factor has in store for everyone.
