Present are the episode summaries for TV Stars Around the World.
Beauty, Brains, and Talent
|UR TAKING SO F--KING LONG!|
The ninth season of TV Stars, eleven Celebrity players gathered outside of the S.S. Star, where the next big adventure of the summer would take place, floating over the seven seas and across vast continents to popular tourist destinations, where each week, a contestant would be voted out and left in that country to find their way home.
After the Host announced the season, the eleven competitors were shocked to learn that, before entering the ship, they would be voting for someone to be the first VIP of the game...as a part of their first impressions.
|VIP First Impressions Vote|
Tess (3 Votes)
Mitchie, Farrah, Kelly
GOPTeens (2 Votes)
Britney (2 Votes)
Farrah (1 Vote)
Mitchie (1 Vote)
Emerald (1 Vote)
Junpei (1 Vote)
Tess was ultimately voted as the VIP for the first week, granting her immunity for the first round of the competition. The Host explained then that competitions in the season's future would center around social gameplay, and left it ominous as to how.
Upon entering the Ship, several competitors made a point to be as over-the-top as possible in order to gain attention, namely Farrah and Tiffany.
|I'm Tiffany "New York" Pollard, and I'm best known for being on the Flavor of Love. I was known for being very feisty and outspoken on the show. The ORIGINAL HBIC is in the building!|
As Tiffany introduced herself rather peacefully, Farrah introduced herself rather awkwardly.
|Hi what the f-ck was going on? I was blowing a producer. What am I supposed to do in here?|
Farrah proceeded to get into an argument with Junpei over his likability among the others, shouting at him that he was ugly and needed to dye is hair to get rid of his ugliness.
While the two bickered, Mitchie and Tess began to also argue over who would be the last person standing. Just as Tess was voted in as the VIP favorite in first impressions, she began to prove herself to be a bully and a villain.
|Who are you? I'm too COOL to know you. You see, some are born with beauty, brains, AND talent - like me, I got it all. I'm a natural. I'm the real deal.|
Tess began to bully Mitchie, telling her that she would never make it to the end of the game, which they both referred to as 'The Final Jam'. Mitchie argued that, just because Tess was scared of her, she did not have to be so mean. The sassy comment was ignored by Tess, as she moved on to try making an alliance in the game.
Tess began to strategize, she overheard Mitchie talking to Kathy about how her mother was the president of "Hot Tunes TV". After hearing this, Tess commented in a confessional that Mitchie may actually be worth adding to her alliance.
The Host announced the major twist of the game, after some time had passed. He announced that the first VIP, Tess, would be the Captain of the week, and she would pick the location of the very first challenge in the game. He explained that future Captains would be determined in social-based Captain's Competitions, in which the winner would be able to select the destination of a future challenge.
After dispersing to prepare for the later events of the week, a new alliance of women began to form, including Tess, Mitchie, Farrah, Tiffany, and Kelly. They christened themselves 'The It Girls', and began to discuss the first vote of the season.
It was time for the first MVP vote of the season. America cast their votes, and Farrah was determined to be the winner with 60% of America's ballots going to her.
With elimination looming, several players feared being eliminated, namely Tiffany. Because of her negative attitude towards Farrah and Equality Emerald, she figured she was a target of elimination.
|None of these people want to live with me! So, I'm fine, I'm cool, I know I'm going home this week.|
As alliances began to form and players began to mingle about the vote, the decision came down to GOPTeens, one of few players of color in the game that shouted nonsense about politics, and Kelly, a nice but quiet dress designer.
Tiffany, still believing herself to be on the outside, began to mingle with the It Girls, whom she was a part of, and found herself deciding that GOPTeens needed to go instead of Kelly. Farrah disagreed and shouted at her, prompting another confessional from Tiffany about her.
|Farrah is getting on my LAST nerve. Someone lied to her several times and told her she was a fly, hot, sexy, and beautiful...and she's nothing like that. She's nothing of the SORT.|
The two main conflicts of the episode, Tiffany versus Farrah and Tess versus Mitchie, had to be put on the back burner as elimination approached. Despite arguing against eliminating GOPTeens, Tess, feeling Kelly was a great friend for her in the game, pushed heavily for his elimination.
At the first backstage elimination of the game, the Celebrities cast their votes, ultimately leading to the first "It Girls" domination of the game.
|Backstage Elimination #1|
GOP (5 Votes)
Tiffany, Junpei, Farrah, Kelly, Emerald
Kelly (4 Votes)
Kathy, GOP, Britney, Adele
Emerald (1 Vote)
GOPTeens was voted out with five votes against him, which, despite being a plurality, was enough to send him packing.
A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing
The episode opened to Farrah and Tiffany up to their usual antics in the Ship, being obnoxious and whatnot. Tiffany opened my making herself out to be the host of the show, taking over for the true host, and Farrah screamed at everyone that she hated them.
|Hello, and welcome to another episode of TV Stars: Around the World! With your host, Tiffany Pollard!|
Tiffany continued to talk randomly about certain topics, when the Host interrupted and called everyone to the living room of the main deck.
There, he explained that Tess, as the first VIP of the game, would be the Captain. The Captain was explained to be a new twist that would occur each week, and they would get to select where the next challenge would take place. As a bonus, they gained access to their own private bedroom in the Captain's Quarters.
Tess was pulled aside privately, and she chose to send the Ship to China for the first challenge, after consulting a map. She was given a brochure, along with everyone else in the game, which detailed that China was a medium location for a challenge. However, for Tess, an extra page was added to her brochure, detailing a secret area she could access by fleeing the VIP challenge in exchange for forfeiting the ability to win. This secret place would contain an advantage in the game for whoever could find it.
|If I can get to the advantage during the VIP challenge, I can definitely use it to my advantage and make the final jam.|
After choosing to go to China, Tess recalled that Mitchie's mother worked in China, and she exclaimed that they would get to meet her there. Junpei also commented that he was from there.
To prepare for the challenge, Kelly created a dress for herself. She strutted through the Ship in a purple top skirt combo with a glossy and glittery hot-pink fur coat, paired with black boots. She dyed her hair blonde with pink streaks to match it.
|I want to be considered a style icon.|
As she dressed herself, Farrah insulted her, calling her the equivalent of a rainbow frog. A meeting for the It Girls was later called, including Farrah and Kelly, and it was decided that Britney would be the next to go.
However, rippled were created in the alliance, as Tess and Mitchie continued to argue over who would make it to the end of the game.
As Adele dramatically stared off the side of the boat into the distance, the Host called everyone together for the VIP competition. After it was explained, Tiffany stated that she was ready to compete, though she was not the best in challenges.
|I may not be that great in comps, but in the end sweetie, the best b-tch is gonna win, and that's ME!|
The Host stated that they had arrived in China, and the VIP competition was explained. It promptly began.
Despite her attempts, Emerald came up short when Junpei robbed the VIP out from underneath her. In the middle of the challenge, Tess split apart from the main path and moved on to participate in the Captain's Twist.
She was successful, ultimately, in getting to the end. Instead of an advantage, however, Tess received another clue that informed her that her advantage was inside of the ship tucked away in a vase. After returning, she sneakily took the vase and smashed it in front of several people, and she snagged what was inside without being caught. Tess received an Immunity Pass, a returning twist from TV Stars Los Angeles, which was usable until the final five elimination was finished.
After winning VIP status, Junpei became far more interactive with the competitors around him. He watched as Tiffany and Farrah argued over their same old things, and he commented that simply looking at Farrah made him want to support abortion.
After this statement, Emerald commented that the language being used was too harsh for television. Farrah got into Junpei's face and screamed that she had already had fifteen abortions in her life. In a confessional, Emerald was enraged over the talk of abortion.
|ABORTION IS A VIOLATION OF RIGHTS. GOODBYE.|
Emerald returned to see the argument ensuing, and demanded that they all shut up. Tiffany ordered her to shut up and get out of the way.
|Get the F-CK out of the way, Emerald! Let the Big Bad Wolf handle it from here, and I'll handle it PROPERLY.|
A rumor began to spread around that Farrah was a transvestite, which she screamed was untrue. Emerald asked her why she had to act in such a negative manner, and she screamed that she simply had to.
|I might be a f-cking b-tch to the heart, but at least I'm not a wolf in sheep's clothing. I'm a STRAIGHT UP WOLF AND I'LL LET THAT BE KNOWN Y'ALL.|
After all of the fighting finished, the Host allowed the players to exit the ship and go sightseeing as a first in TV Stars history - generally, players are restricted to the House except in VIP competitions.
Mitchie and Tess bonded as they went to find Mitchie's mother's workplace, and they spotted it together. Kathy walked alone, trying to pull people in to go with her to see movies and the like before being forced to return, but ultimately, she was ignored.
After returning to the ship, Tess and Mitchie got into an argument over the game. Tess accused Mitchie of being a 'big fat liar' all because she did not believe that Mitchie's mother truly worked in China. Mitchie argued back, stating that she was at least a good person, and she ran off crying.
Tess announced that Mitchie was out of the It Girls, which made her cry worse. Noticing all of the hostility in the Ship, Junpei recognized that, as long as the girls were at each others' throats, he would be safe while they picked each other off.
|The women are fighting...which is probably a good thing. The longer they hate each other, the safer I am.|
The time for the MVP vote arose, and America began to cast their ballots for whom they wanted to be immune for the week, with Farrah being ineligible due to being the previous MVP.
Emerald was selected with 70% of the votes, and thus, she was immune for the week alongside Junpei.
As elimination loomed, the competitors had to decide on who they wanted to vote out. The It Girls, now split apart as Mitchie was kicked out, looked to target her, while some looked to target Britney instead.
Seeing Tess as a bully, Kathy stated that she did not believe she needed to stay in the game after fighting with Mitchie. Mitchie was seen as a weakling to the It Girls, and thus she received votes, but Britney also received votes from reneged It Girls.
While Tiffany and Farrah went at each other's throats, they were completely ignored in the vote, making them safe for the week as both of them received renewals.
|Backstage Elimination #2.1|
Britney (4 Votes)
Tiffany, Tess, Mitchie, Adele
Mitchie (4 Votes)
Farrah, Kelly, Emerald, Britney
Tess (1 Vote)
Britney and Mitchie received votes and tied, leaving the players to re-vote and decide who would go home next.
|Backstage Elimination #2.2|
Britney (5 Votes)
Tiffany, Tess, Adele, Kathy, Emerald
Mitchie (2 Votes)
Britney ultimately was voted out as Mitchie was reintroduced to the It Girls. With Britney now eliminated, she exited the game peacefully.
Fairytale Princess Residing Over the Pits of Hell
At the start of the episode, Farrah began acting very hyperactive, complaining that the season was taking too long for her liking. Tiffany replied to her insultingly, stating that she was annoying.
|Farrah's been running around like she did 80 lines of coke!|
Before conflict could further ensue, the Host announced the first Captain's Competition of the season. He explained that the competition would, as stated earlier, be based on social bonds in the game.
For the first challenge, all nine competitors would participate in a competition known as "Slap Fight", in which the Celebrities had to slap another player or dodge a slap.
In the first round, Tess targeted Mitchie, which alarmed her, causing her to dodge. After defeating Tess, Mitchie moved on to avoid being slapped because of bigger threats in the challenge, and ended up winning the competition.
Instead of putting her mind into the challenge, Kathy instead opted to quit in order to preserve her relationships in the game. She went to make cookies while the others competed, and returned to hand them out to eliminated players.
Farrah did not want any of her cookies, but Kathy persisted. Farrah screamed and knocked the plate out of her hands, insisting that the 'old hag' was annoying her. Entirely unphased, Kathy wondered if it was her cookies that generated such hostility in Farrah.
|I wonder why no one likes my snickerdoodles? Maybe these kids are more about lemon squares?|
Farrah went on to exclaim that she could not stand her.
|I cannot f-cking STAND this f-cking puta named f-cking KATHY. I bet she's not even an aunt!|
Kathy further found herself at the center of attention as Farrah continually insulted her. Emerald commented that Farrah was annoying, and Tiffany replied that she thought Kathy was fake.
|Kathy, Kathy, Kathy...I don't like the fact that she's fake and acting like she was playing innocent, because she IS a fake b-tch!|
Mitchie was pulled aside in the Captain's Quarters and given the opportunity to select the next location for TV Stars Around the World. She chose to send the Ship to Angola. As the Celebrities were each given brochures about the location, it was discovered that the challenge would have an obstruction.
Last seen in TV Stars Hollywood, obstructions made a return this season in varying locations. Mitchie was surprised to learn of the obstruction, but did not have to care, as she ultimately opted to go for the advantage.
Ultimately, Emerald won VIP status. Mitchie failed to achieve the goal in the Captain's advantage competition.
After Emerald was announced to be the winner, Farrah exploded on Kathy, as she misunderstood what Farrah was asking of her; she believed Farrah wanted cookies, but all Farrah wanted was for Kathy to leave her alone.
Now out for blood, she screamed at Kathy for being annoying.
|I want her...TO SHUT HER F-CKING DIRTY NASTY MOUTH! GOODBYE! She's going NEXT.|
Kathy continued to persist that she had no idea why Farrah was so angry with her. She continued to try and befriend her, and was genuinely clueless of the whole situation. Tiffany shook her head and commented that she was an idiot.
Farrah felt as if she had found a common enemy with Tiffany, and proposed voting out Kathy. Tiffany simply laughed at her.
|Farrah's like a fairytale princess residing over the pits of HELL.|
All the fighting activity paused when the Host announced that it was time for a brand new event in TV Stars history. He announced that the Captain would participate in a "Captain Event", which would include choices that would change the round for better or for worse.
The first Captain's Event was titled "Overboard". Mitchie simply had to select someone to throw overboard, and America would decide on how the choice would end up. Mitchie chose to cast over Farrah, and America cast their votes to see how Farrah would be impacted.
The viewing public ultimately decided that Farrah would be given immunity, but that she could not vote at elimination.
Now with immunity, Farrah realized she could do whatever she wanted and would be unable to be eliminated. Before she was cast off of the ship, Farrah detailed a conversation that she had with Junpei, in which he called her varying names, and she demanded that the It Girls vote him out.
With Farrah floating in the water on a floatie behind the ship, Junpei had to do damage control. As America voted for the MVP for the week, Junpei pleaded to the others to keep him in.
Tiffany won the MVP vote with 90% of the votes in a near-landslide. Feeling that Farrah was onto something by boycotting Junpei's position in the game, Tiffany approached him in front of everyone to call him out on his control over the alliances in the game.
Junpei apologized to her for seemingly being in control, as elimination loomed over his head.
|I suppose this is the end for me then? If everyone's being manipulated to think I'm leading this all, that doesn't bode well for me.|
At the third backstage elimination of the game, Junpei hoped that he could stay alive, as he strategized previously with Kathy to vote out Adele.
|Backstage Elimination #3|
Junpei (5 Votes)
Tiffany, Tess, Mitchie, Kelly, Adele
Adele (2 Votes)
Junpei's attempts to save himself did not work, and ultimately, he was eliminated with the majority of votes against him.
Moments of Poetic Justice
Tess opened the episode by talking about how it was time to get rid of Mitchie, since she was still out of the It Girls alliance. Mitchie was offended, and began to play her guitar.
It was revealed that it was Kathy's birthday, and everyone congratulated her on living for yet another year.
|I feel like I need to set some time aside to get to know Kathy. Maybe I can give her a little lesson in twerkology!|
Tiffany began to talk with Kathy, and she revealed that she was forty-seven years old. Tiffany stated that that was very young, which was a lie, as admitted in a later confessional.
Tiffany told a relatable story about how her fifth birthday took place in her home, where she wore a pink dress with ridiculous ruffles. She commented that her party was big enough to cover her entire living room table, which made her realize she was destined for great things.
Meanwhile, Tess stressed about the upcoming "Final Jam". Mitchie tried to calm her, but instead, Tess shouted at her, telling her to go away. Emerald commented to Tess that Mitchie looked better than her and had a better attitude, causing Tess to snap her fingers angrily. She called Farrah, Tiffany, and Kelly together, and the four It Girls walked off together.
As Tess began to sing and practice for her so called "Final Jam", Tiffany ordered that she stop so that she could enjoy her lunch.
Tess argued back, stating that Tiffany would lose the "Final Jam" if she continued with her negativity.
For the Captain's Competition, the Celebrities competed in a game called "Body Guards", in which players had to guard each other to remain in the competition. Players that remained unguarded were eliminated.
Once again, Mitchie won the Captain's Competition, slipping through the cracks and securing herself a second victory in a row. She cheered after winning.
|Thanks, guys! I just want to win this show so I can share my music with the world. I just want to play my music!|
Mitchie was pulled aside to discover the next destination of the game. She chose to go to Agra, India, and received another brochure, which detailed an advantage in the game. Mitchie was determined to find it this time.
After winning the competition, Mitchie found some confidence in herself.
|Bollywood music is some of the most musically important stuff of our time, and I don't think the SPLIT END GIRLS will be able to keep up with the heat. Maybe you shouldn't be so mean to people you're scared of, Tess. See you at the Final Jam.|
After being insulted by her enemy, Tess scoffed and walked off, but not before getting a phone call from her mother, where she discovered that her mother had to work and could not attend the "Final Jam".
Kathy was sympathetic and baked Tess some cookies.
|I feel awful for Tess. I remember when my parents didn't come to my ballet recital...or my piano recital....or my graduation....|
Tiffany felt compelled to include herself in the pity party for Tess. She rolled her eyes, as she felt no sadness for Tess and her mother's neglectfulness. She talked about her own morals in a confessional.
|Either you love New York or you hate New York. I don't put up with no in-between. You know what? F-ck ya' if you hate me. You know, if you love me, I'm with you.|
The VIP competition loomed in the distance, and the brochure labeled it as three-star difficulty, with multiple obstacles in the way.
Tiffany managed to secure VIP status and was immune for the week. She squealed and hugged all of her friends in the game, excluding Farrah.
Mitchie once again failed to secure the advantage during the Captain's VIP competition.
In the Captain's Event for the week, Mitchie chose Kelly, Tess, and Adele to compete in the event known as "Sinking Ship", in which the three players had to compete in a challenge to repair the hull of the ship to prevent it from sinking.
America cast their votes, and they decided that the winner would be able to vote twice at elimination.
The challenge began, and ultimately, Tess won, giving her this special ability. It was here that Tess noticed Farrah had been unusually quiet, and believed she was downplaying her attitude because she had no form of immunity for the week.
Kelly was glad that she did not win the competition, because she did not get her hair wet. To compete, she wore a cat suit which was waterproof, earning the adoration of America while she competed in her cute outfit.
As the game resumed, eyes turned to Farrah for elimination. Tess and Mitchie discussed the vote together, and they agreed to work against her for this round only.
|Moments of poetic justice like this...this is what I came here for! Forcing Tess to try her hand at work her butler is used to doing is so sweet.|
As she attempted to find an alliance to work with, Kathy approached Farrah, prompting Farrah to explode and tell her to get lost.
|STOP IT!!! LEAVE ME ALONE. I'M NOT VOTING WHO YOU WANT, KATHY. YOU'RE A HELL C-NT - PLEASE GO BACK TO HELL. I'M BREAKING OUT IN HIVES JUST BY TALKING TO YOU - YOU'RE GONNA MAKE ME VOMIT!|
Tiffany laughed at Farrah in a confessional.
|Farrah somehow sees herself winning TV Stars: Around the World? And what do I think? WHAT DO I THINK?|
HELL NO I DON'T SEE HER WINNING! The anticipation here is so fit that you can cut it with a ginsu knife.
At elimination, Farrah pouted in the corner of the room, with her legs crossed, furious at her inevitable fate.
Farrah had a glimmer of hope, as she was a member of the It Girls, and she anticipated Mitchie finally being voted out. However, she had not anticipated Tess working with Mitchie again with the It Girls to vote her out.
|Backstage Elimination #4|
Farrah (6 Votes)
Kathy, Tess, Tess, Mitchie, Kelly, Emerald
Mitchie (1 Vote)
Kelly (1 Vote)
|I'm DISGUSTED. I hope you all know about the It Girls alliance, because they're DOMINATING. You better start LEAVING, MOTHERF-CKERS!|
(Walks out, flipping off the Celebrities)
Something Borrowed, Something New
With Farrah now gone, Tess, Tiffany, and Kelly remained the only It Girls, but Mitchie hoped to rejoin after formulating Farrah's elimination.
|The Final Jam is in 6 weeks, and me, Tiffany, and Kelly need to work extra hard. The It Girls are falling apart and the Final Jam is JUST around the corner!|
The Host congratulated everyone on making it to the jury stage of the competition, and everyone cheered. Kathy commented that it was unfortunate for Farrah to be eliminated before the jury, but nonetheless, was excited to have made it so far.
Kelly exclaimed that she was very excited, because she had been saving her best looks for this stage of the game. Tess, however, was not very excited, seeing as how Mitchie and Tiffany were suddenly talking more.
Tess feared that there was an ulterior motive in blindsiding Farrah, and discovered that Mitchie was playing a very hard strategic game in forming a new alliance against her. Tess called her out, screaming that she was a "big fat liar", and asked Tiffany if she still wanted to be an It Girl.
|Hm...let me think about it...Nope!|
Tess feared the worst for her alliance.
It came time for the Captain's Competition, which was known as "Rankdown". Each Celebrity in the game was given a clipboard, and they had to rank their fellow competitors from one to seven, with the player with the lowest score being the next Captain.
Tiffany and Kelly found themselves in last place, which shocked them both. With no way to avoid the others, Mitchie lost the title of Captain to Tess, who was voted in to replace her.
|Captain's Competition #3 - Rankdown|
|Celebrities will rank the remaining cast members. The player that receives the lowest score will be the new Captain.|
After moving to the Captain's Quarters for the week, Tess decided to send the game to Moscow. She still held onto her Immunity Pass earned from her first week as Captain, and planned on gaining a second one to further herself in the game.
While they rested on their journey to Moscow, Emerald and Kelly sat down and talked together about life. Emerald inquired about how Kelly's dresses were coming along, as Kelly worked furiously to create a new one for the next stages of the game.
|They are going good, Emerald! In fact, I have this one that was inspired by your naturally beautiful look! I look forward to making it just for you! It's made of something borrowed, and something new!|
The competitors arrived in Moscow, and thus, the VIP competition began. Tess hoped to secure herself another advantage, while Mitchie hoped to win immunity to save herself from Tess's wrath against her. While looking over the Moskva River as a part of the opening Fame Task, the two competitors prepared for a race.
|Hello Moskva River.|
Ultimately, Mitchie was beaten by Emerald, which upset her, but she took pride in knowing that Tess was not safe. Tess, however, secured herself a second Immunity Pass by breaking another vase and grabbing it. Once again, nobody caught onto this, and Tess maintained security in a very powerful way.
Hours later, Tiffany pulled Tess aside to talk strategy. Tiffany asked if Tess still wanted to work with her and salvage what was left of the It Girls, and Tess agreed. "I won't betray you, I PROM," Tiffany said to her.
|I said I PROM, but that b-tch should have known better. That's only half a promise! F-ck this ship! That's all I can say. I'm damn tired of packing my shit every week.|
It came time for the Captain's Event, known as "Shipwrecked". The Captain, Tess, chose Mitchie to compete in a challenge to secure the ship from an incoming wreck.
America voted and decided that, should she be victorious, she would be able to vote twice at elimination, but if she failed, she would be unable to vote at all.
Mitchie ultimately failed, losing her ability to vote at elimination. Mitchie, thinking it was unfair, left to cry in her sleeping cabin.
Much later, after the event was concluded, Kelly began to question her security in the game. She talked with Emerald about her status, and Emerald assured her that she was fine.
|I'm still thinking about the popularity challenge...this must mean I'm close to being eliminated...or maybe they just didn't like my outfit that day?|
Kelly talked to Tiffany about her friendship with her, and Tiffany stated that she was perfectly fine. Kelly also brought up the It Girls to Tess, and Tess agreed that they were still going to work together to vote out Adele. Kelly began to feel safer with the others agreeing to stick by her side.
It came time for America to vote for the next MVP, and Tiffany ultimately was voted in. She cheered over being immune for three weeks in a row and danced over-celebratorily.
With elimination in the future, it was clear that Adele needed to go, but not all was calm aboard the Ship. Feeling that Adele had no ability to win the game, seeing as how she had been playing entirely under the radar without making any moves or forming alliances, Tess decided that it would be more beneficial to vote out someone else that was a threat to win.
With Emerald immune, Tess looked to her fellow It Girl and main ally, Tiffany, for the vote. Tiffany suggested possibly voting off Kelly in a blindside, and Tess agreed to do it.
|It might break her heart, but I have to get to the Final Jam.|
|Backstage Elimination #5|
Kelly (3 Votes)
Tiffany, Kathy, Tess
Adele (1 Vote)
Tess (1 Vote)
Despite her assured safety, Kelly was blindsided by her allies and friends with only three votes, which, due to Mitchie being unable to vote and Emerald being the VIP, was enough to eliminate her. She cried on her way out, running off of the Ship with her hands over her eyes, instead of walking out peacefully.
|The It Girls are dropping like flies. It's what happens, I guess, when you're held together by malice and malevolence.|
Take This Ship Back to New York
The episode opened with several Celebrities mourning the loss of Kelly. Kathy stated that she felt bad because Kelly made her a fanny pack before she was eliminated, and Tiffany expressed that losing her made her feel bad because she was her friend.
For the next Captain's Competition, known as "Friend or Foe", the final six Celebrities had to label their competitors as friend or foe, and the two with the most 'friend' or 'foe' labels would go head to head in a tiebreaking challenge for Captain status.
Tiffany ultimately won after being seen as a foe, which alarmed her. Emerald and Tess began to act negatively towards her, prompting her to question her safety in the game.
|Now everybody is ganging up against me. For WHAT!? F-CK ALL THAT. They never even wanted me here. I'm glad that the truth comes out.|
Tiffany entered to the Captain's Quarters, where she attempted to bring the Ship home.
|Let's take this ship back to New York!|
I love being the head b-tch in charge here. Haha.
After realizing she was unable to turn the ship around and head for home, she selected Italy. After the brochure was delivered to everyone, Tiffany became shocked to learn of a possible advantage in the game. Realizing that the vase-smashing going on with Tess possibly was because of her status as Captain twice in the game, Tiffany believed she needed to find the advantage to keep herself in the game.
Meanwhile, Tess talked to Mitchie in the Ship. She stated that the "Final Jam" was coming soon, and that she was going in solo. The It Girls had officially collapsed, and Mitchie mocked her alliance failing.
|I have to make sure I'm there to beat Tess at the Final Jam. She says I'm never gonna see it, but she better open her eyes because I'll be there, ready or not.|
Adele, uninformed on every aspect of the game, inquired about this supposed "Final Jam".
|Tess keeps speaking of this Final Jam. I wonder if I should perform? I've been writing a new song called "I'm Sick of This Boat".|
It came time for the VIP competition, and Tiffany prepared for her chance to win an advantage in the game.
Kathy ultimately defeated the others and won immunity, surprising everyone, and now with VIP status, one of Tiffany, Tess, Mitchie, Emerald, or Adele would go home.
Tiffany managed to get to the end of the line and gain a clue to her advantage, which she realized was hidden inside of a vase. She returned to the ship and smashed it to grab her Immunity Pass, not caring if anyone noticed or not. After discovering that Tess, Mitchie, and Adele were throwing the challenge in favor of Kathy winning, she felt that a strategy had formed against her to vote her out.
In the final Captain's Event of the game, "Lost at Sea", Tiffany had to decide on someone to assist her in navigating the sea. She chose Emerald, and the challenge was revealed to be a puzzle of the ocean.
America voted and decided that, should she pass, Emerald would be able to steal someone's vote, but if she failed, the captain would steal her vote and vote twice.
Ultimately, Emerald was incapable of completing the puzzle, resulting in a failure. Tiffany gained the ability to vote twice, further creating a target on her back.
Enemies Tess and Mitchie met to discuss the vote. Mitchie proposed once again mending their fighting, as they did during Farrah's elimination, and blindside Tiffany. Tess agreed, and a plan to eliminate Tiffany was officially concocted.
The Host announced that it was time for the MVP vote, and stated that America would begin casting their ballots. However, Tiffany surprised everyone by reaching into her bra and whipping out her advantage: the Immunity Pass.
|Y'ALL AIN'T VOTING ME OUT TONIGHT B-TCHES!|
Tiffany, now an exile from all alliances in the game, found herself immune from the votes as the MVP.
At elimination, as Emerald was unable to vote, only Tiffany, Tess, Mitchie, and Adele were able to cast ballots to eliminate someone.
|Backstage Elimination #6.1|
Adele (2 Votes)
Emerald (2 Votes)
Tess (1 Vote)
Tiffany, voting twice, voted against Adele, while Tess and Adele voted out Emerald. Mitchie, without any guideline as Tiffany's advantage play came at the last minute, voted against Tess.
Emerald pleaded to stay in the game and pushed for the others to vote out Adele. In the re-vote, Tiffany, Tess, and Mitchie had to make a crucial decision.
|Backstage Elimination #6.2|
Emerald (2 Votes)
Adele (1 Vote)
Tiffany continued to salvage some kind of friendship from Emerald by voting out Adele, but it was not enough to save her. Emerald was eliminated as the second jury member.
The Final Jam
The finale was kicked off with the final five being congratulated on making it so far. The question was raised - who would win? Adele, the under-the-radar dramatic starer? Kathy, the sweet aunt? Mitchie, the victim? Tess, the bully? Or Tiffany, the sassy princess?
|Welp, there goes my ONLY friend in the game!! Rest in piece, Emerald, but mama Tiff is gonna' win this for ya!|
|I'm feeling hopeful about this finale. Making it to the end gives such closure to my relationship with Brad...and Tim...and Adam...and Josh...and-|
The final five expected a dramatic VIP competition, but instead, what the received was far more intense. After being informed that there were no more Captain's Competitions or Captain's Events, the Host announced that the VIP competition would begin immediately.
Instead of competing, however, Tess pulled out her Immunity Pass, waving it in front of everyone and laughing.
Tiffany, Adele, and Kathy began to realize something far more surprising and shocking than they had ever believed. As the Host announced that America would vote for the MVP early on, Tess whipped out a second Immunity Pass and passed it to Mitchie, granting her immunity.
|Gee-wiz! If I didn't know any better, I would say those two were in cahoots together!|
Kathy, Tiffany, and Adele began to form a realization that Tess and Mitchie had been aligned since the very beginning of the game to get to the "Final Jam" that they spoke of. They only fought because they knew they were getting to the end, and considering that they had voted together most of the time and formed the It Girls together, they believed the entirety of their game was a charade.
|I can't afford for Mitchie to go home tonight. I need to CRUSH her in the Final Jam.|
Now with both of their common enemies immune, Tiffany, Kathy, and Adele had to decide who they were going to vote out, along with Mitchie, who was only eligible to vote with her forced MVP status.
Believing Adele could never win the game, Mitchie decided to vote out Tiffany, whom she believed was the biggest jury threat. Mitchie and Kathy aligned to vote her out, while Tiffany and Adele aligned to vote out Kathy.
|Backstage Elimination #7.1|
Kathy (2 Votes)
Tiffany (2 Votes)
The vote tied between the two, leaving Tiffany and Kathy unable to vote. The Host called for a re-vote, with both anxious to see who would go.
|Backstage Elimination #7.2|
Kathy (1 Vote)
Tiffany (1 Vote)
The vote deadlocked, as Adele and Mitchie did not want to forfeit their positions in the game. The vote, now deadlocked, had Kathy and Tiffany approach a stand to draw a straw to determine who would be eliminated from the game.
|Kathy....I wish you an ounce of luck.|
This is my last hope. In the name of the LORD JESUS, please let this be right!
|Backstage Elimination #7.3|
Tiffany survived and eliminated Kathy from the game, leaving Adele and Tiffany versus Tess and Mitchie in the final four.
At the next VIP competition, the girls competed harder than they ever had before. Now without an MVP vote, there was only one opportunity for immunity, and Tiffany was prepared to fight for it.
Tiffany won VIP status triumphantly, defeating Tess and Mitchie who quickly approached the end of the challenge against her. Tiffany, however, recognized that she had single-handedly caused Adele's elimination by winning VIP status, as with an inability to vote, there was no way Adele could survive the wrath of Tess and Mitchie.
|Backstage Elimination #8|
Adele (2 Votes)
Mitchie (1 Vote)
Adele was eliminated from the game in fourth place, leaving only Tiffany, Tess, and Mitchie to compete.
At the final three, the competitors prepared for the final trivia challenge.
|I'm worried that Tiffany will win the Final Jam. Mitchie is pathetic and has no chance, but Tiffany is becoming an increasingly larger threat.|
|I'm only focused on beating Tess at the Final Jam now. And that means I have to do things I never thought I'd have to do.|
|Y'all motherf-ckers are CRAZY.|
Tess and Mitchie remained confident that they would be the final two of the competition. The final VIP competition of the season commenced.
|3rd Place - 1 Point|
|2nd Place - 4 Points|
|1st Place - 5 Points|
As the two "adversaries" were focused on beating each other, Tiffany slipped through the cracks and won the final VIP competition of the season.
Now with victory in her hands, Tiffany had to decide on who she wanted to vote out, but not before being bombarded with threats.
Tess, realizing that her partner in crime was not going to be at the end with her, or vice versa, decided to pressure Tiffany into giving VIP status to her. She pleaded to give her VIP status because she had promised her mother that she would be performing against Mitchie, where she would most definitely win.
Mitchie remained blameless as Tess continually pressured Tiffany for her VIP status. Tess ruined several votes for her as the jury saw everything from the cameras placed in the Ship.
At the final elimination of the game, Tiffany ultimately did not pass her VIP status.
|Backstage Elimination #9|
Mitchie (1 Vote)
Mitchie was eliminated from the competition over Tess.
Tiffany and Tess, the final two, sat in front of the jury and pleaded their case to win the million dollar prize and their own television show.
Instead of begging the jury for votes, Tess proceeded to sing a song about her life. Tiffany did not even bother consulting the jury, either. In a very awkward final stage of the game, the five jurors cast their votes.
Tiffany Pollard (3 Votes)
Tess Tyler (2 Votes)
Tiffany won the game with three jury votes to Tess's two because of her amazing social game and strategic ability, but also for being immune for most of the competition and for dominating her enemies.
