Rickshaw Races -
start this episode off over at home base where Beth is
talking to David. Beth is minding her own business and
trying to stay out of trouble. She's hoping that she
does get a decent chance to compete and win the
competition. Beth was actually disappointed upon
finding out that Tonya wasn't going to be in this
challenge, because she was all prepared to get her
back. We then see a clip from the Inferno II featuring
Tonya throwing all of Beth's clothes in the pool.
David is definitely going to keep Beth at an arms
length and watch her closely, because he knows she may
The teams receive their next clue on their T-Mobile
Sidekick IIs telling them to meet at the Dwight York
Stadium at 9:15 AM. Ruthie, as the current female
captain, is feeling nervous knowing that her head is
always gonna be on the line every time their team goes
into the Gauntlet. Some of the people may have not
been feeling Beth so much. Montana remembers doing the
very first season of "The Real World/Road Rules
Challenge" back in 1998 with Beth and they didn't get
along at all. She says that Beth was exactly the same
as she was ten years ago and has never shown personal
growth then, except from her thighs.
The teams meet with host Lavin over at the Dwight York
Stadium for their next challenge entitled "Rickshaw
Races". There are two rickshaws, one for each team.
The objective is to get all of their team members
around the track, inside the rickshaw. The teams will
consist of six drivers composed of three males and
three females. The first team to cross the finish line
wins this day's challenge. And it's also a "Female
Captain Day" with the female captain of the losing
team getting a one-way ticket to the Gauntlet. Since
the Vets have two more players than the Rookies, as
told by T.J., they have to sit out one male and one
female. Two of the Vets who sit out are exempt from
getting sent into the Gauntlet in case their team
loses. The Vets are thinking about who'll sit on the
sidelines in this challenge. Then in an in-show
interview, Beth says that Montana is flipping out
because she might actually have to prove herself and
run. Montana and Bet's discussion is de-unifying the
team according to Ruthie and is distracing their
gameplan. Beth says to Ruthie that Montana is trying
to manipulate the situation so that she could sit out
and she hasn't stepped up. Montana says that Beth is
scared and thinks she knows that she's on the chopping
block and it wasn't the teams best interest she has in
in saving her own self which was her own interest.
Eventually the Vets decide to sit out Montana and
Syrus during the girls squabble. Here's a look at the
At the end, the Rookies
cross the finish line first. They add another $10K to
their team bank account with both teams totalling
$30,000 each. And Kina, as the current female captain,
she wins a $1,000 Best Buy gift card. As for the Vets,
Ruthie's automatically in the Gaunlet and must
deliberate on her opponent.
In the Vets deliberation session, the team votes for
Beth. Then T.J. spins the wheel and lands on
"Challenger's Choice" and since Beth is Ruthie's
challenger, she picks the game. And for the third time
this season, they play "Reverse Tug-O-War".
The teams go back to the Gauntlet where Ruthie and
Beth take center stage. Once again there's a flag on
both sides of the Gauntlet and the first player to
grab it (while being pulled by a 10-ft. rope) is the
captain while the loser goes home. Initially Beth was
gonna throw the Gauntlet, but T.J. isn't having it
after what he has witnessed in the previous female
Gauntlet games. After the game was too close for
comfort, Beth got to the flag first finally putting
away Ruthie much to the horror and disbelief of
Montana and the other teammates.
As Ruthie packs her bags, we get one final in-show
interview in which she gives advice on not stopping
the fight and that people in past have proven that the
people are manipulative. And as this episode reaches
and end, Beth rellies in her victory while she moves
into the Captains Quarters. Derrick's hoping that Beth
doesn't go on a powertrip as having her as the female
captain is being a scary thought to him. According to
Beth, if the Vets lose another mission, then she'll
try to send Montana home.
And that's all for now, we'll see you next week for a
recap from the next episode of "The Gauntlet II".
Past Real Worlders and Road Rulers
come back for another Gauntlet showdown. This season, players
that have been round the block a while take on the newbies of
MTV's reality franchises.
