Inside the Inner Circle
Before we go to commercial, Eric shows up and announces that they are about to surprise the winner of the Real World/Road Rules Fantasy Challenge with her new car. Man, I sucked at the Fantasy Challenge. I made so many trades in the beginning, thinking that the season was only going to be, like, eight episodes long, that I didn't have any trades left to make in the last half of the season. So I had people like Miami Mike on my team. Bitches. Anyway, Eric sneaks up and "surprises" some girl at her house, but she's all dressed up with perfect hair and makeup, so I doubt this was really a surprise. She screams and yells and drapes herself over the car, and then shows us her old car, which has 200,000 miles on it. Poor Eric. Reduced to a three-minute segment that half the audience probably thought was a commercial and skipped.
Lindsay reminds us that the RW team won $300,000. Mark says that dividing the money got a little complicated. Flashback to the RW team deciding to split the prize money, and Stephen wanting everyone to sign the paper. I hope Stephen did get his share, since he needs money for bail and lawyer fees. Next, various RW contestants make deals with various RR contestants to share some of the money as well. Hollywick announces that she isn't going to make a deal with anyone.
Mark asks Sean how the whole thing worked out. Sean says that the RW team had a deal where they were going to kick $10,000 back to the other team members. They also cut deals with some of the RR team members. Sean says that they've already given their own team members the money, and that he's talked to the others, and that they've shared their money with the RR team as well. Sean points out that everyone except Hollywick went away with some money. Mark asks Hollywick if she's sad that she didn't make a deal. Hollywick says that she went there to win or not win, so she's not sad. Mark points out that Hollywick won a lot of prizes, and Hollywick smiles that she didn't exactly go away empty-handed.
Lindsay asks the RW team what was the most frivolous thing they bought. Mike says that he started wrestling school. Ugh. Good luck with that, Mike. I've watched Tough Enough. I know how few people actually make it in the world of professional wrestling. Elka says that you buy a lot of little things, and suddenly you realize that your account is being depleted; she concludes that she bought many frivolous things instead of one big thing.
