Last time, the gamers were sent adrift in
"Project Gotham Racing 4", while taking on the challenge of stunt driving. Two
factions emerged... Jamal and everyone else. Jamal and Alyson were sent to
Samsung Stadium to race for their lives, but when it was all over, Jamal
overtook and was sent back to the house. Now there are nine remaining.
Hearts sink aplenty while the others welcome
Jamal back with crocodile smiles. Jamal decides to take another approach to the
game, outing Dante's alliance from episode 1. Dante counters with not agreeing
to anything and accusing Jamal of lying. "I think by the end of the week, he's
going to eat someone."
The five that were on the outs of the alliance
confront Dante with the charges, and Geoff notes that the game has evolved into
that dreaded reality standard... suspect everyone, trust no one.
But shortly afterwards, the gamers are going
clubbing, where the guys get their mack on. Mark & Ciji hang out and talk to
each other... when in comes Hannah with the next...
REAL-LIFE CHALLENGE: Dancing with the Stars...
This week's round is based upon "DANCE DANCE
REVOLUTION" (Konami for multiplatforms), the game with the ever famous
dance mat that you use to match up the arrows. The version our gamers will be
playing later is "Universe 3" for the Xbox, but right now, it's all about your
moves in real time.
Here to judge the gamers on their step is
choreographer and "So You Think You Can Dance" mainstay Tyce DiOrio. Joining
them are professional dancers Katie and Kalia. Very simply put, they will judge
in groups of three. The three finalists will have one last dance battle, and the
player with the most fancy footwork wins a Samsung Eternity mobile phone, which
they can use to call someone from home.
Group 1: Mark, Swoozie & Ciji. Mark and
Ciji... don't know how to dance. Swoozie, on the other hand, takes them to
school. He moves on.
Group 2: Jamal, Geoff & Dante. Dante says that
Asian people can breakdance, but with Geoff's two left feet and Jamal's player
moves, he doesn't have to. But player moves win out as Jamal moves on.
Group 3: Amy, Robert & Chelsea. Chelsea wiggles
in high heels, while Robert busts a groove like he's in the club. Amy... oh
dear, at least she showed up. So the battle is et...
Final battle: Swoozie, Jamal & Robert. They're
going to dance to three different styles mixed together. First techno... and
Jamal ends up on his back. Second style... disco. Which is Jamal for "Stripper".
Third up, Salsa. Robert had the same moves of all three styles.
This one goes to.. SWOOZIE. He's in first. Jamal
is second. Robert is third. The rest are tied for last.
Now back to the loft for some practice. Or sleep.
Dante and Rob go up on the roof and talk about Jamal. They agree to target Jamal
for elimination should the need arise.
Next morning, Swoozie calls up his mother, who as
a single man, is queen in his life. It's emotional for him because he's making
his mother proud in this competition. She has a lot of faith in him.
Get your socks on. It's time to dance. Ciji wants
to be the one to send Dante home with her 10 years of DDR experience. Geoff
calls it sweet revenge. They discuss a plan to throw the Isolation Challenge.
But Mark says that you can't trust Jamal to agree to everything. Geoff is also
uneasy as he is entrusting his fate in the hands of other people.
The gamers take a break and make sock puppets.
While the worst players in the game of DDR get up and put extra hours in their
ISOLATION CHALLENGE: Dance Dance Revolution...
The gamers will dance in four-panel single player
move to "Feel the Beat" by Master Source.
Ciji is up first. She has the strategy of failing
the game in order to come in last, save Geoff, and send Dante to Samsung
Stadium... but will it work? It better, because Geoff just failed it. As
And as for Ciji... she just starts dancing and
While the gamers wait to hear the results, drama
between Jamal, Dante, Ciji and Amy escalates. Amy ends up taking a walk.
Meanwhile, Joel has the results... and up for elimination tonight is...
GEOFF. He was the weakest player in both challenges.
In first place this week... Swoozie. He was first
in the Real Life, and second in Isolation.
There's a lot of strain in the house right now.
Ciji pulls Geoff and Swoozie aside. She wants to be the last person to see
Geoff, and this way Swoozie doesn't have to make a decision. Dante ends up
apologizing to Swoozie.
So how does Jamal feel about going back to
Samsung? Very adamant that he doesn't. Mark also doesn't want to go. In the end,
Swoozie has to do what he has to do. He has to listen to his gut, and his gut is
saying "survival" more than it is saying "friendship".
On the roof, Swoozie picks Geoff's challenger in
Samsung.... HIMSELF. Did he make one of the biggest mistakes of the game? This
could be either very noble or very arrogant.
The mode is "Difficult". The song is Jamiroquai's
"Canned Heat". Start practicing.
Swoozie was not 100% going up, but he's just
taken in by all the depressed people in the house. Geoff was kinda thrown aback
as well, as it's something that he would never do in his position. Robert calls
it a stupid mistake, while Dante is touched, saying that he'd rather win by
Jamal says that people need to wake up. This is a
game for $100,000. Swoozie wants to make as many friends in the house as well.
Swoozie goes to chill in the tub, while Geoff goes to work. Can he overcome that
hurdle when it counts?
Next morning, Swoozie is starting to have second
thoughts. "You could go home. One arrow can send you home." All the house knows
is that if Swoozie has the gall to put himself up on the block, he better come
Let's go to Samsung!
ELIMINATION ROUND: You Are Now Dancing for
As said before, the song is Jamiroquai's "Canned
Heat" on difficult. Let's go to the tale of the tape...
The players take their positions. The player with
the most points wins. And... GAME ON!
The key to tonight's match is simple... Timing
and accuracy. You want to hit the arrows at just the right moment and hold on
when you are told to do so. Remember the power bars. Do well, and you could see
a rainbow. Do poorly, and you could see red.
Geoff starts out ahead, but the gap is narrowing
as the game goes on. Geoff is in the red, while Swoozie starts to catch a
rainbow. He misses the combo, but he regroups. Can Geoff do the same? If not,
this could be over rather quickly. Swoozie has hit his stride, while Geoff is
out of power and out of luck. For him... it's GAME OVER.
Next time, we're playing war games for $100,000 and the title of WCG Ultimate Gamer.
