A Talk Show, Supper And A Goodbye - Previously on The Surreal Life, the cast went to a nudist colony; only Trishelle and Ron got completely nude, which defeated the purpose of sending the cast to the nudist colony entirely, since anyone with an internet connection can...

Dirty Laundry

A Talk Show, Supper And A Goodbye - The cast is taken shopping to buy goodbye gifts for each other, and when they get home, a camera crew, a studio audience, and Sally Jessy Raphael have set up shop in the house. Sally Jessy insults each of the housemates individually, and the episode gets more uncomfortable than a dead rat in your undies. Finally, she leaves; the castmates all exhale and get emotional while enjoying their last supper together. Then they start beating the crap out of each other.

Naked Ambition

Nude Resort - Vince Neil invites the housemates to a weekend of fun, frivolity, and assloads of ass hair at the Desert Shadows Inn, a nudist resort in Palm Springs. Those of you who've been yearning for years to see Tammy Faye Bakker's nude pixellated form would be sadly disappointed by this episode, since she bails out of the excursion after scoping out a single penis. The cast then goes to a karaoke bar, where Traci and Trishelle get drunk and decide to massacre "Ice Ice Baby," because Vanilla Ice hasn't been humiliated enough yet.

Beach Blanket Bimbos

Book Signing & A Pool Party - Ron decides it's high time he got laid, so he invites several dozen porn stars to the house for a pool party. The rest of the house goes to a Tammy Faye book signing, where they see what kind of people love the Tammer. Andy Dick tries to rape Trishelle with lackluster results, and Rick James stops in for a burger at 3:30 AM.

Return Of The One-Eyed Monster

A Psychic, A Drunk, And A Hairy Monster - Medium to the Stars Cheri Mancuso is the house's guest, proving that it's harder to top Gary Coleman than anyone ever thought. Cheri freaks out Tammy Faye and Trishelle and leaves the rest of the cast bored by her talents. Trishelle sucks a California vineyard dry and then puts the moves on Vanilla Ice in an incredibly awkward moment. The cast is then told they have to perform a play in the back yard, to entertain fifty local children, with Ron Jeremy directing. Amazingly, everyone keeps his or her clothes on.

Hail Hail The Gang's All Hung

New Roommates - The show TV Monthly called "crazier than a mother sending her kid to Michael Jackson's for the weekend" is back with an all-new cast and lots more talk about sex. In a few weeks, they all get naked. C'mon...who among us doesn't want to see Tammy Faye Bakker's pixellated cha-cha? That's what I thought.

Wedding; Goodbyes

Wedding; Goodbyes - In the season finale, to the shock of everyone in the audience, Susie actually shows up for the wedding, and the unholy union of Corey Feldman and Susie Sprague takes place. An extra dose of drama is added when a surprise guest loudly objects to the wedding's taking place. The ring-bearer tries to escape and has his plans foiled. And the cast members all say their goodbyes, admitting that they'll miss each other greatly. Naturally, this is about twelve hours after Corey's already left.

Softball; Pre-Wedding Jitters

Softball; Pre-Wedding Jitters - The task of the day is for the men to play the women in a competitive game of softball. Brande and Hammer are assigned the captain's positions and are allowed to get people from outside the house to beef up their teams. Hammer gets some of the guys he met in bankruptcy court while Brande loads her team up with Playmates wearing tight t-shirts. Meanwhile, Corey can't focus on the game because he's too busy mentally preparing for his wedding, and coughing up loogeys the size of Emmanuel Lewis.

Brande Needs A Man

Brande Needs A Man - Brande can't seem to find a decent boyfriend, which is one of the pitfalls of posing nude in a national magazine. So the cast has a contest to find Brande a man for a blind date; the winner gets the use of the master bedroom for the night. Corey's beginning to stress about his wedding, which results in hiz taking a monster crap that irritates the rest of the cast. That's what it has come down to: his bowel movements now piss the others off. The poor guy just cannot win. And don't think for a second he's getting any mercy from Uncle Bob.

Vegas; Church

Vegas; Church - This week, the cast flies to Vegas for an evening of "all-out fun." Apparently, "all-out fun" consists of violent outbursts punctuated with the dreaded f-word, arguments reaching a boiling point, naked schlongs dangled in faces, eating greasy hamburgers with gang members and a crying Corey Feldman. Then the fun comes to a screeching halt where the rest of the show is devoted to the importance of religion in a person's life and tales of little children dying from cancer. Yeah. And Uncle Bob's supposed to make that funny somehow. Thanks, producers. Thanks a heap.

Talent Show

Talent Show - The producers decide that it's time to see if the inhabitants of the house lost their talent when they lost their fame. It doesn't take too long to realize they did. Big-time. Brande breakdances. Gabby plays a kazoo and dances. Hammer does a comedy act dressed as a retarded transvestite. Webster breakdances. Vince sings a song that he wrote in five minutes. Jerri does spoken-word poetry. And Corey seizes the opportunity to perform a song from his brand-new album that isn't half bad. You know -- if you're deaf.

Camping

Camping - The cast goes camping for the evening and nerves are worn thin as they're forced to endure Corey's endless self-absorbed psychobabble for several hours in the van. Jerri's rewarded a luxury tent at the campsite, while the rest of the cast members have to pitch their own tents. These are musicians and actors that we're talking about here, people. Their idea of "roughing it" is having to stand by their mailboxed in the rain, hoping against hope that the mailman will finally bring them an actual fan letter from someone who isn't presently incarcerated.

New Friends

New Friends - What do Vince Neil from Mötley Crüe, MC Hammer, Emmanuel "Webster" Lewis, Corey Feldman, 2001 Playmate of the Year Brande Roderick, Gabrielle "90210" Carteris and Jerri "Survivor Australia" Manthey all have in common? They're all roommates and the stars of the WB's The Surreal Life. And, not coincidentally, they're the most boring collection of former celebrities ever assembled in one place. These people make Strom Thurmond look entertaining. And to think Uncle Bob actually begged for this assignment.
