Episode 4.26 - March 21
We have 6 faaabulous people ready to win $50,000.
Can't wait? Neither can I. Let's meet them already...
Monique Hommerson (NYC, NY - Bartender) - She
says that people may think that she is dainty, but she
is ready for everyone to kiss her butt. Based on
her...assets, I think they may be more inclined to kiss
her bust than her butt.
Anthony Moss (Pasadena. CA - Telecommunications)
- There's nothing that he won't do, won't try, blah blah
blah. They certainly won't be able to help him, as he
has a big black cap that is covering half of his face.
Paola Martinez (Phoenix, AZ - Hospital
Interpreter) - She says that she will do whatever it
takes to win, and despite people wanting her to yack on
television, she's not going to do it. Foreshadowing?
David Velez (Dallas, TX - Sales) - He has black
hair, but he thinks he's a blonde, because his high
school voted him the most bubble-headed. Blondes don't
do very well on the show, so maybe it's a good thing he
has black hair...
Elizabeth Perry (Coppell, TX - Model / Actress) -
She wants to prove it to everyone else that she is a
badass and a winner. 'I don't have to prove it to anyone
else, because everyone else already knows how great I
am.' She said this, not me.
Ryan Droze (Sunrise, FL - Graphic Designer) - His
girlfriend wanted him to do this and he will win it for
his girlie. Well, it worked for Ryan Sutter...
CHALLENGE 1: Ride-tisserie
Joe gives his spiel, and then shows the group a car
that's set up like a chicken on a spit grill. The car
will actually be rotating like it's on a rotisserie
grill - and everyone will be in it. The objective is to
get out of the car. The slowest man and woman will be
cooking their own chicken - but will have to come up
with their own money instead of the $50,000.
Elizabeth is first, and she says that her screws are
tied tight today. Uhhh....ok. She cam also bend her legs
over her head - and then rests her ankle on Joe and says
that she loves to perform. Yowzers. Liz says that
Monique looks like a bimbo and asks Joe if she's stupid.
Joe says no, but the face clearly says 'yes, yes, yes,
yes and can I have your number after the show?'
We know that Elizabeth is...er...flexible, but can she
get out of a rotating car? The answer is...no. She quits
at 50 seconds and she couldn't unlock herself from the
car. Liz says that her screws are loose now, and she
says that she was a crazy person - and she's crazier
now. She adds that she peed in the pool while she was in
the stunt, as she exits, stage left.
Now that the pool is a few degrees warmer, all the women
have to do is to complete the stunt. Paola says that it
doesn't matter how long it takes her to do the stunt,
she will complete it. She said that she has a ferret who
accidentally ate a parrot. She dedicates the Fear Factor
to Bebito the Dead Parrot. Nice. The parrot can be happy
with the first stunt, because she does complete it in
53.9 seconds. When she comes back, she hugs
everyone...except Anthony, as they talk trash to each
other. I love those budding romances, don't you?
Now that we know it can be done, Monique is ready to go.
Anthony thinks she will complete the stunt - because she
fill float to the top of the car. Ouch. Monique is going
to win the money for her son. Hey, it's better than a
dead parrot, but the parrot may have had more of an
effect. Monique quits as well and not even her breasts
could help her. She credits herself for being a great
Now it's time for the guys to go. Dave used to work for
NASA< but now he works as selling women's clothing. Dave
says that he's going to Cowboy Up, and indeed, he does.
Cowboy Dave gets out - but in a very slow 1:13.9. Even
Paola beat that time and he is clearly on the bubble.
Anthony is up next and Paola wants to see him leave. He
takes off his cap and we see that he is bald. Put the
cap back on! Anthony struggles a little, but he gets it
done. The good news is that at 1:01.7, he beats Cowboy
Dave and he screams for joy. The bad news is that Paola
beat him and she gets up in his grill about it.
While Anthony and Paola are still talking smack to each
other, Ryan goes up to complete the stunt. As the stunt
is progressing, Joe notes that it's late in the
afternoon and the water has gotten quite colder. Is this
a factor?It doesn't seem like it as Ryan gets out of
there before Anthony. The time is 48 seconds, which
beats everyone. That also eliminates Dave, who looks
like he has been thrown off by a bucking bronco. He says
that at least he got through a stunt - but then again,
for a blonde (or someone who wants to be one), that's a
serious accomplishment on this show. Whoopie.
CHALLENGE 2: Fear
Factor Sushi Bar
We start the second stunt in a Japanese restaurant. I
bet it's time for the icky food stunt. Sure enough, it's
sushi, Fear Factor style. Ryan loves sushi, while
Anthony has never had it before. This isn't exactly a
good crash course. The sushi dishes will be in front of
them - but they are in Japanese. Each person will be
selecting 2 dishes which they will be eating, and they
have 10 minutes to get both dishes down. If you eat it,
you will be advancing.
Anthony orders dish #1, which is Maggot and Madagascar
Cockroaches Fotomaki. Anthony chews the cockroaches and
shows Paola the remains, but she starts making vomit
noises. It doesn't matter, as he gets it all down. The
next dish is #2 - a maggot and rotten squid gut hand
roll. Well, that's sort of close to sushi - the squid
part, anyways. Joe calls Anthony an animal as he noshes
it down. Paola calls him something else, 'No one
believes my that this guy has serious psychiatric
Paola will get to wait, because Ryan goes up next. #3 is
red worms, super worms, maggots, earthworms and roaches
in a hand roll. He says 'Thank You' in Japanese to the
chef, and he says that it tastes like sushi. Paola
actually wants him to get it down. Wha? Well, she is
hoping that if she doesn't beat Anthony, then Ryan will.
Ryan has some difficulty, but gets it down. The next
dish is spider roll - with real tarantula spiders. He
also completes it and Ryan is moving on.
It's time for Paola to munch, The first dish is a stink
bug and beetle in a fish sauce on a tobiko-like roll.
She chews through it and now it's Ryan that is giving
her words of confidence. Joe wonders if they have an
alliance and wonders if Anthony is going to trash-talk
to her. Anthony says that she's not a threat, so there's
no reason to talk trash. It wouldn't have mattered 0 she
gets that down and also gets down #4 - 3 shots of Fish
sauce, Squid Guts and Squid Ink in a sake-like vial.
Paola gets it down in the quickest time and all three of
CHALLENGE 3: Pushover
Are you ready for the final stunt? Paola is and she will
win this for the ladies. Anthony says that it's not
going to matter and Ryan says that the competition is
going to be tough. We see how tough right now as they
have to collect flags off of a beam. Here's the catch -
a wall will be moving behind them just waiting to push
him off. The person who gets all of them the quickest or
who gets the most before falling off will win the money.
Anthony goes first, and he is doing this for his
daughter Jackie. Anthony says that he will beat both of
his competitors and that will be a wrap. It could very
well be a warp - but for Anthony, who wastes a lot of
time getting his balance on the beam. He recovers to get
them all, but it's in 1:25.2 and that time is very
Anthony yells in jubilation, but we have yet to hear
from Paola, who thinks that Ryan, who is a surfer, is
going to be a bigger threat than Anthony. Paola is
trying to be dainty about it and takes her time. The
only problem is that dainty doesn't win $50,000. She was
too slow and completes it in 1:26.0. Anthony screams in
jubilation and Paola says that both people are great
Amidst the Anthony Vs. Paola feud is Ryan, as we see if
his surfing skills will come in handy. They do - Ryan
also has a shaky start but he moves much faster than
Anthony. His final time - 1:14.7 and all Anthony can do
is seethe. So the power of Carolina the girlfriend is
stronger than the power of daughter Jackie or the power
of a dead parrot, as Ryan grabs the money - and says hi
to Carolina in the process. AwwwwBleagh.
