In this episode, Russian spies steal top-secret
plans for a Scramjet plane. And another group of contestants must compete to
find them and collect to up 50 large.
The operator has got four more contestants who answered the ringing phones and
they all want the chance to win $50,000.
Samantha White - 19, Biochemistry Student
Tanya Firicano - 21, Reservation Agent
Mitch Gladstone - 22, Personal Trainer
Rameika Boyd - 22, Sales Rep.
The operator then pairs Samantha up with Tanya and Mitch with Rameika for this
game. They're being told that the Russian spies have stolen top-secret plans for
a Scramjet plane. And the Feds believe that the plans will be smuggled out of
the country inside a forged painting. At that point in time, they're making
arrests, but they're no closer to finding this painting. The players' main
mission is to recover the painting at all costs.
As both teams head off to the Boston Public Library, they get word that a
Russian turncoat is waiting for them at a footbrige in the Boston Public
Gardens. An image of the turncoat is fed to their phones to help find her. And
once they do so, they must gain her trust by giving her the code, which is the
name of the music composition hidden in one of the library's books. If none of
the players learn how to play music, they must find a library patron who does.
They have ten minutes for one of the teams to give the turncoat the correct
Mitch and Rameika get to the turncoat with the correct password: the Russian
National Anthem. She then gives the passports to them before the operator wires
$5,000 to their account. Mitch and Rameika also gets a key which will be used at
their next location, the Russian Embassy. They get into a limo that'll take them
there. Samantha and Tanya were late in getting this task done, so they get nada,
but a limo with their passports and a single key is also waiting for them.
The next task for both teams is to go to the basement where they must find the
Scramjet component and escape. The Russian ambassador has just arrived at the
Embassy and is now under the watch of Russian guards who have attack dogs. The
players must use their passports on the scanner near the front entrance to gain
Both teams get to the basement, only to find an elaborate maze of lazer beams.
Both Samantha and Rameka will wearing protective glasses, which will make
finding the component difficult. They must trust their partner to guide them to
the center of the basement where the component is at. If a team trips three
lasers, they'll alert the embassy guards and they'll become dog food.
Rameika gets to the component first, which is in the cylinder and a key is
needed to open it. Mitch slides the key to Rameika, opening the cylinder, and
retrieving the component. They get $10,000 wired to their account and escape the
embassy, while Samantha and Tanya get an elimination that bites, so to speak.
The Artist's Commune
The operator then tells Rameika to step aside from Mitch her solo decision.
She's told that the blueprints have been stashed inside one of the paintings.
Their next task is for her or Mitch to find a painting clue while the other
distracts the artists by posing nude. If Rameika poses nude and the task is
complete, $5,000 will go to their account. If the task is complete with after
convincing Mitch to pose nude, an extra $10,000 will be added to their account.
Rameika convinces Mitch to pose nude, then finds a hidden room where she also
finds the painting. In it, there's a hidden image that's a crucial clue to
recovering the Scramjet plans. The image is only revealed when reflected on the
Scramjet part. Rameika must find the image's counterpart somewhere in the loft.
She didn't find it and the rime ran out, causing $15,000 to fall by the wayside
and Mitch's posing was all for naught.
The painting has now been taken out of the commune along with the clue to the
location of the Scramjet plans. The team takes a cab to follow the car that has
the painting being transported. Then as Mitch and Rameika we're getting the
car's license plate number, the chase turns dangerous. Eventually, the car being
chased crashes causing the painting to be ejected from it. As the team gets out
of the taxi, Rameika had to vomit after experiencing such a dangerous chase.
They both open the painting to reveal the final clue, which leads to the Old
Old South Church
For their final task, Mitch and Rameika have to identify which of five nearly
identical paintings perfectly matches the counterfeit they've been given -- it's
the one where the blueprints are stashed. They have three minutes before the
Russian ambassador arrives to pick up the plans.
After a process of elimination, Mitch and Rameka pick the correct painting in
time adding $20,000 to their account, brining their final mission total to
