Oscar, sounding eerily like Balki Bartokomous, asks Nomi what they'll be doing today. She says that she can't completely reveal the challenge but they'll be "getting ready for the streets." They're apparently fumigating the lofts -- what horrible timing. Janelle has another idea. She interviews that she assumes it's a hip-hop challenge, which would be a relief for her after the shittiness that was her performance in the last challenge. The dancers hug Nomi and she leaves.
The dancers meet Jerry at the studio. He is joined by the guest choreographer, Dave Scott. Michael helpfully announces in his interview that Dave choreographs movies, such as Stomp The Yard and You Got Served. Fun! Jerry reminds that much of Dave's choreography involves "street battles," so the challenge will be take place in Fallujah. Scary. No really, the dancers will be battling each other. Nick interviews that he grew up in the suburbs of Houston, where there weren't a lot of street crews. There were also not a lot of reasonable facial hair crews in Houston. I really hate his beard. I guess we blame Houston for this.
Robert Hoffman, star of Step Up 2: The Streets, will be helping to demonstrate a proper street battle. Janelle interviews that she auditioned for the lead in SU2 but didn't get it. Too bad, cause Rob's a cutie. She coulda stepped up all over that. ["You're not wrong. Also, having seen Step Up 2 The Streets -- and you all really should see it too -- and the caliber of acting and dancing in the female lead role, the fact that Janelle lost out on that part seriously does not speak well of her. But for real, see that movie. With friends and booze." -- Joe R] So, Rob asks for some "effin' music" and he and Dave battle and it's really good. I thought it would be a little more taunting, but they essentially just try to out dance each other one at a time. Rob does some really limber break dancing, while Dave does some cool pop-and-lock. I think they call a truce.
