"Vertigo" - January 17

It's great to to hear that Chico "and the man" Alexander is back in the GSNN virtual office after taking an exciting cruise. But now, I'm ready to give out another recap of the latest episode of "The Real World/Road Rules Challenge: Battle of the Sexes II."

We start tonight's episode with the four remaining girls at a Japanese Bistro where they receive their next clue. On the phone's screen display it says, "Are you ready for your next mission? This is the high point for this season... Wear tennis shows, tanks, shorts, and sunscreen. Be ready by 8:30 am." Sophia is concerned about Arissa's abilities in the physical challenges because of her fear of heights. Eric and Mark made a pact to bring each other to the finals. They've also thought about the possibilities of the of the next mission's outcome and their other teammates Dan and Theo. The teams go to an aerial setup in Albuquerque, New Mexico in which their next mission will take place. The teams are then introduced to the Mayor of New Mexico, Martin Chavez. Arissa could not believe the next mission requires the use of heights. The name of the mission is called "Vertigo," the teams must walk to the pedestals on the endpoints of the beams and stand upon them for as long as possible. Once everyone's in the position, that's when the contest will actually start. The team who stands on the longest will win a $3,500 shopping spree to Todd Oldham by Lay-Z-Boy for each member for a total prize package of $14,000.

The teams now have have their final 30-minute deliberations on who the team leaders should be and they better choose wisely. The girls elect Coral and Arissa while the guys elect Mark and Theo. As they prepare for the mission the guys realize that they want Arissa to stay in the competition as they've noticed her performance in the previous missions. The 2-minute prep period begins, and at that point they must get to the end of the pedestal before the mission actually begins. Arissa's fear of heights is shown and she's having second thoughts. Then Dan lost his balance getting himself eliminated and then Theo did the same thing. And just like that the girls win the first heat, that means the first team to win two heats wins the challenge. The other two team members ready themselves for heat two, then Eric and Mark got elminated gving the girls their third non-consecutive win.

The men now have send either Mark or Dan out of the game while the women will have to send either Arissa or Tina. Arissa feels great that she won't be going home. We then found out later that the men had devised a plan to keep Arissa in the game. They did that by trowing the mission they've already took part in. Good thing the girls did not catch on to that. That totally stacks the deck for themselves in the final mission. Mark has already been to the final in the first BotS, but Eric hasn't so Mark decides to take one for the team in which the team was cool about. The girls IC have their deliberation on who should stay and who should go. The teams go to the top of Elimination Hill for one last time. The girls send Tina home leaving Sophia to be one of the final three. In no surprise to us, the viewers, the guys send home Mark.

And then there were six, the team of Dan, Eric, and Theo and the team of Arissa, Coral, and Sophia. When the smoke clears, which of these teams will cash in on $180,000? You'll have to tune in and see the final mission next time, here on "The Real World/Road Rules Challenge: Battle of the Sexes II!"
