Host Lavin then tells us that the "Fresh Meat" were
immediately put through a series of trials to test
their speed, agility, coordination, and puzzle
After the players take their seats at an auditorium,
they recieve news of a twist from host T.J. Each of
the Alumni will pick one FM person of the opposite
sex to be their partner throughout the whole entire
challenge. Each of the Alumni will be randomly
selected to pick through a lotto draw. Here are the
|ALUMNI (Blue)|FRESH MEAT (Red)|
With only their teammates to rely on, the pairs will
face off in 15 challenges, which will test them
physically, emotionally, and mentally.
In order to stay in the game, they must avoid being
eliminated in Exile, where two teams will compete
head-to-head. The winners stay, the losers go home.
Only four teams will make it to the final challenge
where they'll compete for the biggest cash prize in
history. The first place team there will
All of the players go to their homebase, which is an
all-lit-up house with a rustic and open feel to it
and it looks gorgeous. Then a few of the male
players take an impromptu dip in the pool, which led
to the female players getting some "eye candy". In
an "in-show" interview, Theo hopes that the Fresh
Meat kids have no clue how twisted and backstabbin'
and dirty this entire deal is and hope that they
realize it when they're on the way home.
At the kitchen, Wes says to the Alumni they just
kick whoever wanted to be in here out. They're kind
of having an intimacy problem. They didn't mind, but
Evan sees it as it's not a good scene as the Alumni
ripped the Fresh Meat sign off the wall and kicked
the FM players out. Jesse is a little bit bummed out
that he's paired up with one of the awesome people
just because the Austin cast is gonna be targeted.
Because they came in here already with an alliance
and the people just don't necessarily like the
Wes mentions that he started dating Johanna and
became a couple. Then Melinda mentions she's dating
Danny and she's very happy. It's kind of Melinda's
on vacation with Danny, but the drama hasn't hit the
Them the players receive their next clue on their
>> Are you ready for your first Challenge? Be
prepared to stand tall with your partner. Wear your
team colors and tennis shows and be ready to leave
by 7 AM.
Evelyn feels like she's pretty much calling the
shots in this game and feels like things are gonna
work out the way she wants to.
The teams now go to one of Australia's world famous,
tallest residential building, in the world, the Q1
for their first challenge of the season. This one is
called "Stuck on Me", where each pair will walk
along and back on a 25-foot balance beam that's
hanging out over the building's edge. But first,
each pair will be connected back-to-back by way of a
harness. One player will walk forward while another
walks backwards to the line at end of the beam and
then go vice-versa to the starting line after doing
a 360-degree turn.
The team who completes the task the fastest wins
this challenge and will select two teams to go into
Exile. Once again, T.J. the host uses the lotto
machine to choose who'll create the playing order.
Coral has been chosen and with the help of Evan, her
partner, they will do the latter and they have 10
minutes to do so.
1) Tonya/Johnnie - Completed
2) Melinda/Ryan - Completed
3) Johana/Jesse - Completed
4) Wes/Casey - Completed
5) Derrick/Diem - Completed
6) Danny/Evelyn - Completed
7) Tina/Kenny - Completed
8) Darrell/Aviv - Completed
9) Theo/Chanda - Completed
10) Shane/Linette - Completed
11) Katie/Eric - Completed
12) Coral/Evan - Completed
And the results are in...
| 1 |Coral/Evan |0:14|
| 2 |Theo/Chanda |0:20|
| 3 |Shane/Linette|0:28|
| 4 |Katie/Eric |0:29|
| 5 |Danny/Evelyn |0:37|
| 6 |Wes/Casey |0:40|
| 7 |Tina/Kenny |0:54|
| 8 |Darrel/Aviv |0:55|
| 9 |Derrick/Diem |1:02|
| 10 |Johanna/Jesse|1:14|
| 11 |Melinda/Ryan |2:00|
| 12 |Tonya/Johnnie|3:41|
Coral and Evan win this challenge and will now
choose a pair to go into Exile. Johana definitely
thinks that because that she's a part of the Austin
cast and they're dating each other, they could be
targets for elimination.
Coral and Evan decide to put Wes and Casey into
exile unless they win the next challenge in which
they may choose another pair to take their place.
Coral and Evan are also out of the vote for the
night to see which of the other pairs will be Wes
and Casey's opponents. Wes is doing what he can to
make sure that the relationship with Johana isn't
such a big deal in this game. But Wes talking to
Tonya about that could be his downfall.
Back at home base, T.J. tells Coral, Evan, Wes, and
Casey to leave the main quarters since they're
exempt from tonight's votes. The other players have
20 minutes to decide on another pair to go into
Exile. Then T.J. tells the in-room players to give
their vote verbally. Here are the results...
Danny/Evelyn - 10 Votes
Tonya/Johnnie - 4 Votes
Shane/Linette - 3 Votes
Derrick/Diem - 1 Vote
The votes have been tallied and Danny and Evelyn
will do battle against Wes and Casey in Exile. Tina
knows that the Austin cast members have felt that
they've been targeted and says that they've (the
other alumni) been doing this for years. Tina also
mentions that this is their first challenge and they
have to be initiated. And their initiation is only
having a week here. She closes the in-show interview
by saying "see ya"! The exiled players were
disappointed in the way the voting went.
Danny was pissed off at Wes for his attempts at
conniving to get votes to Shane which didn't work,
and says that Wes is next on the hit list.
The players recieve their next cell phone clue...
>> Now that you have entered the bush, prepare to
get whacked. Be ready to leave by 8 AM.
The players go to a swamp in New South Whales,
Australia for their next challenge "Bush Whacked".
There are about 20 tree stumps with 12 of them in
the outer ring and eight of them in the inner ring.
The trunks in the outer ring are two feet tall and
there's one per team, meaning both teammates will be
on their stump. While they stand on them, they'll
whail a medicine ball around to knock the opposers
off their stumps. A team is allowed to hold the ball
for three seconds, holding it longer will lead to a
team's disqualification. When four teams have been
eliminated, then the remaining teams go to the three
foot stumps. The last team standing wins this
challenge and a pair of Samsung Slider cellphone and
T-Mobile service for a year.
The winning team also will select the order for the
next challenge. Today is also "Exile Day"
so...anything can happen.
In the end, Coral and Evan have won their second
mission in a row. The other players now must say
their goodbyes to Danny, Evelyn, Wes, and Casey as
two of them won't be coming back from Exile and they
won't be able to witness the action as they have to
take the bus to home base.
T.J. then tells the four players that the Exile is a
race. There's a start, a finish, and two checkpoints
in between. There are two different stations in the
race in which upon completion gives a team a sort of
reward, but they are optional and a team can pass on
them if they want.
T.J. also tells the teams that upon their arrival in
Oz, they weighed their luggage. And for this purpose
they must carry the bags in which the weight is
equal to their luggage which may hinder their
progress. The teams get into the van where they'll
be blindfolded. The race begins the moment the
players are out of the van. Wes and Casey carry a
total of 113 pounds while Danny and Evelyn carry a
total of 150 pounds.
The puzzle at the first checkpoint involves a board
with pegs that form a plus sign and they must remove
enough pegs to have only one remaining for a reward.
Wes and Casey have trouble with it which is causing
them a time delay forcing them to forego the puzzle.
Danny and Evelyn, on the other hand, did it
successfully giving them a time credit of one
minute. Danny says this isn't good becuase it took
his team line about a minute to solve the puzzle.
The second puzzle may have the teams remove three
sticks to leave three squares remaining. Once they
remove a stick, they aren't allowed to put it back.
Wes thinks it's an extreme disadvantage to stop do
these puzzles, and the rewards won't have a big
influence on the race. Wes and Casey then go to a
podium where they get a message telling them to get
in the car and drive to the finish line. As for
Danny and Evelyn, Evelyn gets disqualified because
she moved a stick more than once in the second
The car is then driven back to home base where Wes
and Casey are let out. They're back for a few more
days while Danny and Evelyn got screwed in what they
call...a game of politics.
To make Wes feel better after sending Danny home,
Evan agreed to have him stapiling the name Danny on
his butt. What a post-"Jackass" world we live in
At the end of the episode, Tina says "The Austin
cast is a huge target, you do not belong here. This
is our turf and we're gonna kick the ones we don't
like...off, real quick. This isn't a game...this is
And after that, if you were still watching MTV, you
were treated to an eight-minute "sneak peak" at the
"Fresh Meat Aftershow" which is also on MTV's
Overdrive for broadband users. A short program where
you get the real dirt from your favorite
challengers, this should be fun.
Stay tuned to GSNN for more recaps of "The Real
