I don't know if I mentioned this last time, but I was sure glad to see that bitch Tina not make it to the finals. Not that that the girls stood any chance at winning the big prize, especially after the guys' little last minute trickeroo, sticking them with the worthless Arissa, but I definitely like the fact that she spent all that time there and didn't go home with any more than she probably could've made working at the Big Gay Mart or some shit. I'm bitter like that.
Before I continue with the details, does anybody know whether or not Sophia is a full-on jiglady, or is she part cracka? Because she kinda sounds cracka, and that hair strikes me as overcompensating.
The show starts out with what's supposed to be a final, formal dinner. Eric, who's about to get paid, squashes whatever little beef he has with Coral. I guess they can find common ground in the fact that going on these dumbass challenges is basically their careers at this point. Dan calls Theo, that well known racist and dater of the haggard, slutty Tonya, "an unparalleled mind." I took that one as a come on, no homo. But then Jonny Mosely, or whatever his name is, and a buncha guys in black pajamas come and kidnap the group.
For whatever reason (product placement, I'm assuming), they're made to spend the night in some "prison" with only water, crackers (note the -er), and sleeping bags on the floor. At 6 AM, they are woken up, all stiff and stinky, and helicoptered to the site of the final mission, way out in the desert. The final is your basic final mission from any of these challenges: Run through a course, find a buncha keys, and then solve a puzzle.
I guess MTV did as best a job as they could to make it seem close, but it became pretty obvious when the guys were on the puzzle and the girls were looking for the last key, without having completed the most physically demanding part of the mission - a run through the hot, dry desert - that the girls didn't stand much of a chance. And since the puzzle wasn't even that difficult anyway, the guys were actually done with it by the time the girls even got there.
The Prize: 180K split 3 ways + 3 trips for 2 around the world worth 15K apiece from STA Travel for a grand total of $225,000 worth of cash and prizes (no Pat Sajak), not to mention the 12 prizes the guys picked up throughout the season. I believe the girls ended up with 2, which is just amusing.
