"High Noon" - November
a non-quickie recap of an episode of "The Real
World/Road Rules Challenge: Battle of the Sexes II."
The episode begins when Frank offers Angela advice on
how to handle her teammates and jokes to the guys that
he and Angela "made whoopee." The girls had won the Junk
Boat challenge on the previous day, they're hoping to
use that victory as a way of motivating themselves to
win again this day.
The teams go to a western town where they'll take part
in the next challenge, "High Noon." First the teams are
given a set of playing cards in a 2-Ace ranking with the
Ace card being high. The teammates choose which card
they want based on their experience in paint ball. Cards
are worth different amounts of points; Jacks are worth
11, Queens are worth 12, Kings are worth 13, Aces are
worth 14, the remaining cards are worth their face
value. The moment the card selections are done is when
the guys and girls will use paintball guns as their
weapons of destruction in a quick draw competition. The
first player to hit their opponent gets points for their
team. The team with the most points wins $500 gift
certificates from Pottery Barn Teen for each member.
Angela decides to step up as a leader today because she
feels bad since she stepped down as leader on the
previous challenge. On this day, she's here to prove
herself. Arissa and Tonya also step up to be leaders.
For the guys, Randy, Brad, and Eric are the team
leaders. Robin and Shawn duel in the first round for 2
points and Robin gets her shot off first nailing Shawn
giving the girls the early lead. Minutes of footage
later, the guys are leading the challenge the most of
the way until the lead went to the girls. When Mike
takes his turn, he knows that he has to perform well or
he could be on the chopping block. Despite the blustery
winds Mike nails Ibis despite the blustery winds and his
very proud of himself for hitting a girl with a
paintball. The men are then pulling ahead. When Angela
duels against Brad, Jonny announces that the women must
win the next three rounds in order to win the challenge.
But when Brad hits her with a paintball, it was all over
for the girls giving the guys another win.
Over at elimination hill, Eric tells the guys that based
on their "formula", they have chosen Shawn to go home.
Ibis goes up to speak for the girls and tells Angela
that she's going home. Stepping onto her soap box,
Angela keeps her head up high and, much to everyone's
surprise, speaks her mind. She basically tells the girls
that she's not a ***** like them and that's not how she
wants to play the game and hopes that the women aren't
all like that outisde the "Battle of the Sexes." The
girls cheer her on and Frank is proud of Angela for
saying what she felt. Before she's gone, Angela narrates
that she's open to having a "friendship" with Frank.
With Angela voted out, Rachel now believes that the team
is a lot stronger because they are rid of Angela's drama
queen ways, which were a burden on her team.

episode of "The Real World/Road Rules Challenge: Battle
of the Sexes II."
