In an interview, Kelley talks about the prize-sharing scheme some members cooked up. Didn't we see all of this two episodes ago? Anyway, each RW team member has hooked up with a RR team member and made varying agreements on splitting the prize money. Sean apparently drafted an agreement about it. The only people who didn't make an agreement are Coral and Hollywick. In an interview, Hollywick tells us that she decided not to split the money because she thinks doing so would cause her to try less, knowing that she wouldn't get all of the money anyway. That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Hollywick says that if she wins, it's because she was chosen to win. Okay, Vecepia. I'm beginning to get really annoyed with game-show contestants insisting that they were chosen by a higher power to win.
At breakfast, Hollywick sits all by herself. In an interview, Coral says that Hollywick is "the Wicked Witch of the East." Then Aerosmith plays really loud on the soundtrack, thus confirming my belief that Steven Tyler sold his soul to the Devil, or at least blew someone at MTV. Because while I certainly am guilty of grooving to Aerosmith back in the day, do the kids really still find them relevant at all? Or listen to their music? And yet, they are all over MTV.
The contestants all head down to the beach for their final mission. Mark and Eric welcome them and remind us who the ultimate teams are. The role of the ultimate team is to serve as leader for the missions. The team that wins gets a check for $300,000. The winning ultimate teams get a 2002 Saturn Vue. Between the God love and the Saturn Vue, I'm wondering when this show turned into Survivor.
Timmy explains the final mission in an interview. First up is a relay race featuring kayaking, deep-sea diving, and longboarding. Then, the team has to complete a puzzle, and then climb a rope ladder to reach the finish line.
Sean and Elka lament how physical the challenge is. In an interview, Sean says that looking at the mission, he feels like the odds are dropping for his team to win. Theo assigns roles to his fellow team members. They all talk about whether they are comfortable with their roles. Theo says, "Dude, we could take an iguana, put a Road Rules sticker on his back, and still win this thing." I don't know how many more opportunities I will have to say this, so: shut up, Theo. Even though he gets bonus points for using the word "iguana," which is kind of funny. In an interview, Hollywick says that her team can win, but that she doesn't feel like it's a foregone conclusion.
