Two Humvee limos pull up and the teams cheer. Ramona from Survivor gets out of one of the limos. Rebecca says that she's excited because it's reminiscent of the first mission. Ramona tells them that they will take the limos to the site of the next Challenge for their handsome reward. Ramona tells them that the winning team will get six new Toyota Celicas. In the limo on the way to their next Challenge, James asks who wants to lose the cars. No one answers. James points out that no Road Rules team has ever lost the handsome reward, and that the value of the six cars is worth more than the Real World team's prize money. The only problem with James's theory is that he estimates that the cars cost $30,000 each, and Celicas are around $20,000. I guess the math works out, but it was funny to me that he thought Celicas were $30,000 cars. No one really seems that interested in what James has to say anyway. They just look tired.
I guess it's the next day, because the sun is up. I was kind of looking forward to seeing them camp out in the desert, although without Ayanna and her clarinet, what fun is it? Ramona gathers them all together and comments on how hot it is. Yeah, because it's the desert! Did they think it would be cool? Ramona explains that they will be doing a road rally. Each team gets one car, with no gas. They have to push the car to some gas cans a mile away. After gassing the car up, only one person can drive the car back -- the rest have to run alongside, and the whole team has to cross the finish line to end the race. The two teams will be on separate courses of equal length. That would suck. Kameelah tries to pump her team up, and Emily does the same on her side. Emily explains that "Susie's not good at physical missions," so she's going to sit in the car and steer. Ramona starts the race, and both teams start pushing.
And pushing, and pushing. Basically, this whole segment consists of scenes of the two teams pushing. Jamie explains that his team decided not to have a driver because of the additional weight. I would guess that the weight wouldn't make that big of a difference, but the additional person pushing might. Julie says that everything went fine until they got to their first hill, and then she thought that she was going to die. The RR car comes to a complete stop, which is death in this situation. You want the car to keep moving, because then at least you have some momentum. I've pushed enough cars to know that the hardest part is getting it moving in the first place. The RR team keeps pushing and I seriously would have grabbed Susie by her hair and told her to get her ass out and push, at least for the hill. In an interview, Emily says that she's trying to motivate her team, because she wants to give up, and if she says anything, the rest of the team will give up too. They finally get the car moving again, and Susie cheers them on. Shut up, Susie. The RW team has reached the gas cans and starts back with Dan driving and everyone else running alongside. The RR team reaches the gas cans and discusses that the RW team is ahead of them. The RR team keeps hopping onto the car and hitching a ride, which doesn't seem quite fair. You'd think they'd have learned their lesson about cheating after last week's episode. The RW team isn't doing that, at least from what we see. I guess it's a moot point, because the RW team crosses the finish line first. They celebrate. In an interview, Julie says that she got everything she wanted out of the Challenge. Except her dignity, I guess. Ramona officially announces the Real World teams as the winners.
