MTV’s The Challenge: Free Agents is already showing us how it is everyone for them selves. “Love in the Fast Lane” starts out with the Jessica/Dustin relationship that already has some serious legs in only the second episode. After cuddling together in the opening scene, they are caught making out in a stairwell during the housewide costume party.
Frank is taking body shots of Aneesa (not sure if that’s something I’d want to do), Johnny is a…banana, Camila is catwoman, and an unidentified male is a monkey. Seems like a great time going on. We then cut to Dustin’s bed, and Emilee is in there looking for some action. Being that Dustin is now single, he is contemplating the hookup, but as Emilee tries to kiss him, he pulls away as a few other girls barge into his room.
Today’s challenge is called “Auto Body Rally”. Teams of two, male and female, will race another couple down a drag strip. Once the car gets to the end, they must run to the end of a set of hay bails and then to a bike that seats two. The guy pedals forward, while the girl’s seat is turned backwards and must steer with a handle. The 4 teams with the slowest times would go into the draw. “Captains” were picked randomly out of a bag and the teams were as follows and the matchups.
Swift-Theresa (swift can’t drive stick)
Frank-Nia (massive crash) W
Aneesa-Zach close 2nd
Bananas-Joanna crash w/ Cara and Johnny on the bikes (W)
The one kick for this challenge was that you better know how to drive a stick. Only a few guys didn’t know how to, but those who didn’t, eventually got the hang of it. Once everyone made it to the bikes, all hell broke loose. They either crashed into each other or the hay bails. It was pretty funny seeing the girls just get thrown off these bikes while trying to steer and just get right back up. God bless them.
When all was said and done, the two fastest teams were Laurel/Couhutta and Jessica/Leroy. And the winner by three seconds was Laurel and Couhutta. This means they control the vote and will be picking a guy and a girl to go into the elimination challenge.
After the challenge, everyone went out the bar for Cohutta’s birthday. All the girls put on ultra red lipstick and were kissing him all over. But the only one who kissed him on the lips was Nany, and they seem to have a bit of a connection going on. But whenever there is alcohol involved, LOOK OUT. CT was NOT happy about picking up the entire bar tab that wound up being $750. He gave Issac a bit of crap when paying, but as always, Camila just went CRAZY. She went after CT for whatever reason, and was screaming her face off at him. But for some reason, Camila turned against her best friend Nany. The two of them were nearly black out drunk and were complete maniacs.
Back at the house, they needed to be physically restrained by almost every guy in the house. Nany even went as far to yell at her, “You wanna fight?! We can fight!!”, I’ll fuck you up!!!”. They wound up back in Camila’s room and in there, Camila managed to get away from Dustin for a second and smacked Nany in the face. It must not have been as bad as I thought because she didn’t get kicked off the show.

As far as Laurel and Couhutta’s picks for elimination goes, they chose Dustin and Jonna. I liked the choice of Dustin. It’s about time someone chose a good player and tried to get them out early.
At the elimination challenge, they held “The Draw”. Theresa, Cara, Emilee, and Nia went for the girls, with Emilee drawing the skull and crossbones. For the guys, CT, Swift, Johnny, and Frank had the task of picking. And for the second straight elimination, Frank draw the card o’ death.
“Wrecking Wall” was a pretty straight forward challenge. The competitors had to race up a 30 ft high wall that was made of sheetrock and ring a bell. The only way to make a foothold or handhold was to either kick or punch though the sheet rock. The girls race was no contest. Emilee couldn’t break a pane of glass with a sledgehammer and Jonna just blew past her. Emilee brought nothing to the table anyway and I’m glad she’s gone. As for the guys, Dustin and Frank had a great race. They were neck and neck the whole way as they flew up the wall. But in the end, Frank got to the bell a split second ahead of Dustin. It was pretty shocking to see Dustin go home so early, but there are no alliances this season. If there were, there was NO WAY he would be going home at this point in the game.
