Mark asks Kameelah whether there was ever tension between the two teams. Did he watch the show? Kameelah laughs and says that "the last two weeks of the trip weren't exactly 'Happy Happy Joy Joy.'" Kameelah adds that she and Susie had a good relationship, but that, in the last week of the trip, they didn't even look at each other, "because it got really evil." Melissa asks whether they ever found themselves biting their tongues. Emily says that she definitely did, because when she went on the show the first time, she said a lot of things that came out sounding stupid, so she was more careful this time. Which is why, in my opinion, this show is boring -- the people on it are way too guarded, because they've done this before. Emily concludes that "it's really hard to be yourself," and that she "didn't want anything held against [her] in the end."
Mark points out that during the paintball mission, "it was ten minutes away from going WWF Smackdown style." Shout-out? Mark asks Syrus why he "went medieval on James's ass." Syrus said that he was shot in the head after the fact, so he was ready to mix it up. Mark asks Syrus whether he agrees that both teams bent the rules. Syrus says that "there's bending of the rules, and then there's twisting and bending and throwing the rules over there." Everyone laughs as Syrus keeps yelling about how much James cheated. Julie says that no one had bad intentions on the mission, and that James is "a good guy; he's a gentle guy." Syrus interrupts to say that he's "heated." Kameelah rubs his knee to try to calm him down. Syrus babbles on more that James planned to cheat and then did, and now Syrus has another knot in his head. Mark tells James to defend himself. James says that the biggest lesson he learned was losing. He babbles about the money and the fifteen minutes of fame, and admits that the paintball day was the worst day of the trip. Mark asks why he felt that way. James says that he "got lost in it," and that he "let [himself] sink to a level where [he] was willing to hurt people just so [he] could win." James admits that what he did was wrong. Mark asks Syrus whether he and James are cool, and Syrus says that they are. Everyone cheers.
Mark asks Laterrian about the Judge Mills Lane mission, where the judge said that if the RR team had been there, they would have won. Mark asks whether, in retrospect, they wish they had handled it differently. Laterrian says that when the mission took place, they were not a team, but that he didn't want the other team to win automatically. That didn't really answer the question. Susie says that she sides with Laterrian, because she "took [her] friggin' shirt off and kissed a girl," and James wouldn't make a similar sacrifice of his own morals for the team. Everyone applauds. James says that there comes a point where the money and the fame don't matter. Ayanna says that she agrees that "there are times when the money doesn't matter, and you have to stand for what you believe in." And then she talks for about ten more minutes, because she is constitutionally incapable of keeping things brief. As we go to commercial, we get to relive the James vs. Syrus dustup.
