A little something different tonight (7/15) as my tag-team partner Mr. Feinburg is away in Europe on a vacation. We won't be using the Scribble Live per usual, but I'll do it the same way I handle Countdown when Keith's on.
For those of you who missed last week's show, the Red Robots swept both games, went to a local race track to do some racing and drifting, while the Green Tigers were saddled with working at a Tokyo gas station where they expect you to have full service, proving the title The Fast and The Furious Tokyo Drift came true. Bobaloo was eliminated by Megan in a walkoff, while members of the Sayonara Mob have been put on the disabled list for the rest of the season with herniated discs due to his weight.
And for the second switch of the season tonight, one Red Robot will join the Green Tigers. I'm betting on Drew to be the one. Please don't send Jamie from Fairless Hills over there... So if you're ready...EVERYBODY...
As the day starts, we learn Jamie's having an affair with Drew. And wigs arrive for the first game, as Rome busts a move. AND DID MEGAN JUST KISS HIM? Let's play SOCCER TIME WITH GRANDPA! But first, it's time to even out the sides, and Cathy switches back to the Green Tigers. And the Green Tigers go first wearing whacky vision goggles. The first goal as a riccochet, while the second through fifth are all legit. The Red Robots are on deck.
And the Robots get the hang if it getting first two, but Jamie hits a camera. Times a wastin' and the Red Robots can muster only three so the Green Tigers win the advantage for the next game which promises to get sticky. It's called STUCK ON GOLF! The advantage is a member of the losing team wears shackles. The game involves giant balls and a sticky course, and Jamie is stuck on the floor already, and the team with the least balls left on the muck wins.
Well, we're back from commercial and the Red Robots get in the swing of things...and Rome and Judge Bobu are having to be in the danger zone. The Green Tigers left 15 balls, while the Red Robots left 24. As their reward, the Green Tigers will meet the best sake maker and taste some Yamagata beef. The Red Robots though will pick seaweed. More important, two of their players will play an elimination game. And Whoa, whoa, whoa, Jamie's crying...because she might be going back to Fairless Hills. In anaylsis, Cathy should have stayed with the Red Robots, but she volunteered to go back to the Green Tigers. And she's become a good luck charm for her teams, in spite of everything.
Now at 3 AM in the morning, the Red Robots are going out to harvest seaweed. Drew wants to get out with an uneasy feeling. Me thinks it's elimination game for him. Meanwhile, Mama-san gets to be the resident translator for the Green Tigers for their Sake tasting three hours north of Tokyo, and meet actual Geisha Girls serving that Yamagata beef. Now it's elimination day and Drew and Jamie will face the music of alliance alienation in the elimination game. Oh, Jamie was backstabbed by Dan! Since the Robots can't decide, the Green Tigers pick Jamie and Drew.
Let's play the Elimination contest...as Rome wears a white suit with a purple shirt and red tie. And the game is SQUISHY SQUID FACE! The player that removes the most squids with their mouths covered in pantyhose tied to a rope witin two minutes in a head-to-head race stays in Japan for another week. The loser officially will leave via the Sayonara Mob. Jamie is faster then me on a bending Diet Pepsi spinner...but Drew is catching up. But when all is said and done, Jamie has a dozen squid, Drew had 11, and Jamie survives.
Well, that's it for this week, so be here next week for another live blog, either by myself or with Justin, who might be having jet lag moments.
