Present are the episode summaries for TV Stars Road Trip.
I'm a Master Manipulator
|@CodyCalafiore is a punk b-tch and blocked me|
For the eleventh season of TV Stars, six Superstars - former players of the game - joined the Host for a road trip around North America for the million dollar grand prize at the end.
Six new competitors joined them this season as an Entourage of wannabe Celebrities, traveling with them to compete for the prize. Would the Favorites beat out their biggest Fans? Or will the Fans defeat the Superstars, as voted in by America, and win the million dollar grand prize and their own television show?
America voted, and the chosen cast of Ashlee Williams, Attention Whore, The Real TDI Justin, Equality Emerald, Kid Detective, and Baylor Wilson joined the Host in front of three RVs in Salt Lake City, Utah.
When it was explained to the Fans that they were competing against the Favorites, Renee laughed, mocking their status as fan-favorite players of their previous seasons.
|Last time I checked @thesefavorites didn't even win TV Stars, but hey, good job at being forgettable losers! #tvstarsrt|
Michelle exclaimed that she had applied to TV Stars millions of times before, and that she was so nervous to finally be on the show, especially when competing against returning players.
One by one, the returnees and newbies were given a chance to express themselves in a game-opening confessional.
|Heyyyy, I'm baaaaaaacck!!!|
|I did NOT sign up to be sharing the stage with ELEVEN other people!|
|19 BUT GOTTA TIGHT P-SSY LIKE I'M 9|
|What's this show again?|
|I'm Poppy. I'm Poppy. I'm Poppy. I'm Poppy. I'm Poppy. I'm Poppy. I'm Poppy.|
|I got to know so many inspiring women last time and we SMASHED the men. Let's do that again, ladies!|
|AAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!! I've been dreaming of TV STARS for YEARS this is SOOO exciting I'M SO NERVOUS!|
|*smokes candy cigarette*|
|I SEE A GAPING BLACK HOLE IN THE FLOOR OH MY GOD I'M GOING TO FALL INTO THE DEPTHS OF HELL|
|Don't forget to sign up for 'JUST SHOW UP'! You don't want to miss the opportunity of having BAYLOR AND MISSY at your birthday party!!!!!!!|
Attention stated that she knew she would be back on the show some day, considering she was the biggest TV Stars fan-favorite of all time.
Ashlee agreed that she was a major favorite of her original season in Broadway, and that TV Stars jumpstarted her career and she was ready to return to her roots. She also commented that she recognized Attention from Broadway, and said that they were the only two Superstars with a previous encounter.
Looking around, Renee noticed that there was no House in sight. She questioned the Road Trip twist, not realizing they were actually going on a road trip.
|Isn't TV Stars supposed to provide a sanitary house without rodents with diseases in there? Why are there six of them here? Get the rats out! @faves #tvstarsrt|
Michelle commented that she had studied the game, and she had seen plenty of people have a downfall over "some guy". She declared she would not have any 'showmances' in the competition.
After noticing that most of the cast consisted of women, he commented that he would get along just fine this season.
|This is perfect! I can totally manipulate women! I'm good at that!|
Justin commented loudly that he was good at manipulating women, which caused Emerald to lash out at him, stating that manipulating women simply was not okay.
Before the Host announced the beginning of the competition, the first twist of the game was revealed - but only to the viewers, not the main cast.
In a confessional, Renee and Michelle sat together, staring at the camera awkwardly. It was then revealed that the two were actually sisters and had to keep it a secret. If they made the final two together, the winner would receive two million dollars and the runner-up would receive one million.
Separately, Michelle discussed the twist.
|I'm NOT gonna let ANYONE know my sister is here...|
I just don't....I don't know why she ahd to BE here for MY TV STARS EXPERIENCE!!
The Host revealed that the twelve competitors would be traveling together around North America - specifically the United States - to compete in competitions and go on tour, much like real celebrities.
This excited most of them, but many preferred to stay in a House and compete like in previous seasons. The first major twist of the season, the Pit Stop Competition, was introduced to them.
|Ew, communication? Social bonding? I don't have time for this! I'm a master manipulator, not a master compromiser.|
All of them would be divided evenly into three RVs, colored red, blue, and green, and they would travel to their destinations together. After arriving, they would compete in the Pit Stop Competition for immunity, with the winners becoming Power Players and being ineligible to vote someone out for the week.
All players drew random colored cubes from a box to determine what RV they would be staying in.
Now inside of their respective RVs, they all set off for their first destination. After being given three points of trivia, they had to figure out the next location and drive there to find the first Pit Stop competition awaiting them.
|Pit Stop Competition #1|
|Camels were once used as pack animals in this location.|
|This location has 17 of the largest hotels in the United States.|
|This location is a popular gambling outlet on the West Coast.|
|Las Vegas, Nevada|
Inside the Green RV, Emerald discussed sexism with the other women on board, which was completely ignored by everyone. Attention Whore simply tried talking into the camera to steal the screen time from the others, which annoyed Amanda greatly.
|Why am I with the ATTENTION WHORE? WHAT THE F-CK!|
In the Blue RV, Kid and Justin bonded over the game. Justin suggested forming an alliance with Kid, and the two became the first tight allies of the game. They agreed to team up with the other Favorites to eliminate the Fans.
Meanwhile, Cupcakke spent the majority of her ride staring at Justin's abs.
|Justin is a GOOD LOOKIN dude! On the outside I'm like, "nice", but on the inside I'm like, "Deepthroat"!|
Michelle spent most of the ride crying because she thought that RVs were for fat people. She stated that she did not want her crying to impede on her game, but already she was not making friends with her constant sobbing.
In the Red RV, Poppy quickly got on the nerves of Baylor, Ashlee, and Marina by reading the Bible to them. Whilst she read loudly in the background, Ashlee and Baylor bonded.
Ashlee commented that she thought she had met Baylor before at a TV Stars reunion or some kind of "High-class soiree". She also commented that she had seen Marina at a photo-shoot.
|They all seem...alright! This'll be fun.|
Baylor suggested forming an alliance with Ashlee and the other Favorites, suggesting the name "Just Show Up Alliance". Ashlee agreed to work with her, and stated that she would take pleasure in working with Justin.
After several hours of travel, the Green RV arrived to Las Vegas, Nevada in first place. They began working on the Pit Stop task rapidly, but Attention Whore was not working with the group. Instead of assisting in the challenge, she took pictures and attempted to talk to the cameras.
Within a few more hours, the Blue RV arrived, and Michelle instantly stormed out in tears.
|In the past twenty four hours my LIFE HAS TURNED UPSIDE DOWN with this twist and I CAN'T DEAL!!|
Kid and Justin worked together to build up the blocks in the task, while Cupcakke and Michelle slightly lagged behind.
The Red RV was absolutely nowhere to be found. On the road, Baylor, Ashlee, Marina, and Poppy were lost on their way to the Pit Stop. Baylor took the time to work on her social game while Ashlee took over the job driving the RV to their destination.
|I'm already working on alliances and my social game. I could win this. My time will come.|
Despite the Green RV arriving first, the four members of the Blue RV succeeded in completing the task and buzzed in the completion first, winning immunity for the first round of the game.
|Pit Stop Competition Winners|
The Red RV received a call from the Host on the emergency phone inside and were instructed to drive to the Pit Stop and were given explicit directions after they fell behind so far.
Hours after the competition ended, the competitors explored the Pit Stop location in Las Vegas, dining in exotic restaurants and playing with studio-enclosed slot machines.
While relaxing in her RV alone, Michelle discussed her inner desire for an attractive man to have a "showmance" with her.
With everyone now congregated, Baylor took the opportunity to form an alliance and assume control of the game. Baylor met with Justin, Ashlee, and Kid to discuss forming a final-four alliance.
Baylor coined it the "Just Show Up" alliance, deeming that the Favorites would take over the game and vote out the Fans. In order to get more numbers on their side, considering Kid and Justin could not vote at the next elimination, they decided to reel in Marina as a member and gained Attention Whore as an affiliate, as she also worked with the Favorites to eliminate the Fans.
Marina was pulled aside by the Favorites and agreed to work with them to vote someone else out. Despite it being seemingly obvious that the Favorites were all aligned, Marina was blind to this and worked with them anyway.
Hours later, the Power Players, aka the entire Blue RV, were told to enter their RV for a meeting. Inside, Kid, Justin, Cupcakke, and Michelle were instructed on a new twist in the game. Half of an Immunity Pass dangled inside, and they had to decide on who would receive it. If anyone managed to get two halves, they would be able to make a whole Immunity Pass.
They decided to give it to Michelle, and she happily accepted it.
The Host gathered everyone for the first VIP Competition of the season, which would take them on an adventure through Las Vegas. The winners of the Pit Stop Competition were ineligible to compete, being immune from the game already. The rest prepared for a heavy battle for safety.
Renee managed to win the first VIP Competition of the season, securing her victory and immunity for the week at the expense of her vote.
Afterwards, Kid Detective attempted talking to the Host about his previous encounter in TV Stars Los Angeles with Tila Tequila. He informed the cameras that his lawyer needed to talk to the Host about it, but the cameras quickly cut away.
It came time for America to vote for an MVP, and everyone campaigned hard for the support of the fans.
With 80% of the votes, Attention Whore was given MVP status for the week, to which she cheered flamboyantly.
As the week came to a conclusion, the Host gathered all competitors and explained another brand new twist to the game. The "Social Media Mogul" twist entered the game, and if any player in the game managed to get a real world celebrity to retweet or reply to them on Twitter, they would receive endorsement from the celebrity and an advantage in the game.
With that, it came time for elimination. The players had only a few hours before sunset to strategize.
Marina met with the other Favorites, sans Emerald, to discuss the vote. Ashlee informed Marina that Poppy was the decision she had heard from the others prior to this, and stated that Poppy had been rallying for Marina's elimination.
Seeing as they were both Youtube sensations, Marina and Poppy became the targets for elimination.
Poppy, Emerald, Amanda, and Cupcakke discussed the vote. Cupcakke, whom was unable to vote, suggested that the girls integrate with the Favorites to get rid of the target. Poppy demanded that Marina go home because she was "stealing her style", and led a charge against her.
But would it be enough? Could Poppy get any Favorites to flip to her side and blindside Marina at the first vote, or would she get the boot in Las Vegas?
At the elimination set, the three RVs were parked side by side in the background as the players eligible for elimination gathered around a small stage. Seated in an outside theater-like area, Attention Whore, Equality Emerald, Amanda Bynes, Baylor Wilson, Ashlee Williams, Marina Joyce, and Poppy sat in front of the stage as the Host gathered the votes and tallied them.
Off to the side was Renee Meyer, who was able to spectate the vote as the VIP. The Power Players relaxed with their luxury items from home in their RVs.
|Backstage Elimination #1|
Poppy (4 Votes)
Marina (3 Votes)
Emerald, Amanda, Poppy
Poppy was unsuccessful in blindsiding Marina, and found herself the first person voted out of the game.
But Poppy's time in the game was not over. After exiting the game and entering an RV to go home, Poppy was instead transported to an off-site area. This was the first step in the brand new twist, known as the TV Stars Revival Competition. Poppy would remain inside the RV, enjoying a peaceful road trip as the RV followed the competition from far behind, gathering other eliminated players to participate in duels.
For now, Poppy remained the sole member.

Hoe of the Year
At the start of the week, still in Las Vegas, Cupcakke and Emerald argued over Cupcakke's loudness and shameless promotion of her new album, S.T.D.
Emerald told her that she needed to stop promoting her sexuality, and Cupcakke angrily replied that she did not care.
|I BEEN SLUT SHAMED BUT I KINDA LIKE IT|
Emerald insulted her, calling her a disgusting human, and stated that she was going against her mission to create a better identity for women in America.
|I AM A HOE TOO BUT I AM HOE OF THE YEAR!|
Ashlee, overhearing the argument, interrupted, stating that she represented women too, and that she planned on modeling and making movies in her future. She stated that she planned on becoming president, as well, and was going to make changes in America.
Justin interrupted the argument and commented that Ashlee would make for an excellent president, considering she was a highly irrelevant celebrity and that running for president was what all irrelevant celebrities do.
|Ohhh, was that too mean? Sorry, she's too famous for me to manipulate, so I just attack her to cover up my own flaws.|
Later on in the first day, Cupcakke flirted with Justin. She told him she could teach him about love and life, and he replied that he was rich and did not need to be taught about love or life.
After this concluded, the Host called for the next Pit Stop Competition. The final eleven gathered and were informed that the RVs would be dropping to three members instead of four. The outgoing VIP, Renee, would select two people to sit out of the competition, therefore making them ineligible for the immunity.
Renee stood in front of everyone and chose to force Michelle and Baylor to sit out. The rest of them drew colored cubes for their RV designations.
Michelle & Baylor
Kid commented that he was happy to be competing with Justin again. Ashlee was also excited to be paired up with the other model in the cast, referring to Justin.
On the flipside, Marina's mad ramblings annoyed Cupcakke, and as the Red RV set off to the next location of the game, none of the three could pay any attention to the clues and veered in the wrong direction.
|Someone tell me where to go...I am lost Hoe...|
|Pit Stop Competition #2|
|Over 48 million people visit this location annually|
|This location houses the world's first skyscraper|
|The term "Jazz" was coined in this location|
On the way to the next destination, Chicago Illinois, Marina rambled incoherently about religion and politics, and Cupcakke failed to figure out any of the clues while Attention Whore spent her time talking to the cameras.
Meanwhile, the Blue and Green RVs worked hard to reach their destination. As Emerald drove the Green RV to Chicago, Justin drove the Blue RV, and the two reached the Chicago Pit Stop at similar times.
In the competition, both RVs worked very well together, while the Red RV remained in dead last, barely out of the state of Nevada.
Aside of the RVs competing, Michelle and Baylor were flown to the Pit Stop.
I'm just SOOOO UPSET and BETRAYED by my own...*sobs*...SISTER!
Michelle ranted about how she hated Renee for forcing her to sit out, which Baylor listened to but did not respond. Michelle essentially gave away that she was her sister, which was alarming to Baylor.
After the plane arrived at the Pit Stop, the Green RV won the challenge, barely beating out the Blue RV.
|Pit Stop Competition Winners|
Almost a day later, the Red RV arrived, and Cupcakke, Marina, and Attention rejoined the cast for the next VIP Competition.
Right at the start, Michelle began to cry about not being able to compete on her own for this challenge. As chaos ensued with people refusing to give up their bus tokens, Baylor managed to slip by with one and won the competition as a whole.
After Baylor won and the competitors dispersed to enjoy Chicago, the Power Players were gathered in their RV to discuss the Immunity Pass twist. Renee, Emerald, and Amanda agreed to give the Immunity Pass half to Amanda.
Renee suggested an alliance between the three women, and they agreed to working together against the rest of the competition.
Several hours later, Amanda became the first Social Media Mogul of the season, as she sent a tweet out to Evel Dick from Big Brother and received a response from him. She was called into the confessional to receive her prize, which was a coveted RSVP.
After it was explained to her, however, Amanda believed it was usable after the votes instead of before, which would only spell trouble for her in the future.
It came time for America to vote for an MVP, and they decided to vote for Justin and Cupcakke. However, after a miscount from the producers, Justin received the win with a technical 50% of the votes, making him immune once again.
|I already know America loves me, so of course they wanted to give Justin an ego boost. How nice of you, America!|
With elimination looming over their heads, Attention, Ashlee, Cupcakke, Kid, Marina, Michelle, and Justin had to pick someone to vote out.
Michelle became afraid of being voted out by the Favorites which held the majority. Though Marina seemed blind to the fact that they were all working together, Michelle was very aware.
|I HAVE to be strong or else I'll be the WORST super fan EVER. I just wanted to be the female version of Tyna!|
Oh wait...she was already female.
Attention Whore was very confident that she knew who was going home. After consulting her fellow allies, Ashlee, Justin, Marina, and Kid, they agreed to vote out Cupcakke.
|I know who's going home. And it WILL be a blindside. I am the best strategic player in TV Stars history, thanks for asking!|
Michelle became a friend of Marina, as Marina calmed her down when she was crying about being a failed super fan. Marina influenced Michelle to vote out Cupcakke, to which she agreed.
|I just wanted to play a good STRATEGIC GAME like Korra but all I'm doing is MELTING DOWN like MITCHIE TORRES AND I CAN'T DO IT ANYMORE|
Cupcakke, the only outlier of the vote, recognized that she was in trouble.
|I been lock'd out of the social circle. NO ONE IS CALLIN' CUPCAKKE.|
At elimination, the seven voters awaited the results of the next cancellation. The Host revealed them.
|Backstage Elimination #2|
Cupcakke (6 Votes)
Attention, Ashlee, Kid,
Marina, Michelle, Justin
Marina (1 Vote)
Cupcakke found herself eliminated unanimously, and she stood up angrily and exited the game.
|I am so sorry Cupcakke but it was either you or me and unfortunately I know what it means to have a near death experience and that experience was able to save me this time around because of my experience.|
Marina apologized to her, but it fell on deaf ears.
But Cupcakke's time in the game was not over. She was brought to the TV Stars Revival Room and joined Poppy.
|Revival Room Population|
Inside, the two Fans reconnected and discussed how the Favorites were running the game, and how Marina and Michelle were completely blind to it.
The Host came to the RV and announced that they were going to compete in the first TV Stars Revival Competition. As it ran in two parts, Poppy and Cupcakke would only compete in round one, known as the Encore Round.
The winner of the Encore would move on to the Redemption Round and face off against the winner of the next duel.
Cupcakke defeated Poppy, officially eliminating her from the game. Cupcakke remained the victor and was given a free pass to the fifth week.
|Revival Room Population|
Play My Own Game
For the third week of the game, the remaining ten players congregated in the reunion square of Illinois.
All seemed well until a sudden tragedy struck them. During a conversation with her allies, Emerald began to feel faint and passed out on the ground. Fearing she had a concussion, Emerald was pulled aside by the TV Stars medical team and was diagnosed with low blood sugar.
Emerald was pulled from the game due to fear of a concussion, leaving nine people left in the competition.
After Emerald was eliminated officially, very few people bothered to mourn her departure. Justin and Ashlee got into an argument afterwards, discussing how they both were copying each other by being models.
Ashlee argued that she was better than Justin because she helped underprivileged kids find food in third world countries, and told Justin to find a fashion sense.
Before he could retort, the Host called everyone together for their RV assignments. As Emerald had quit, nobody was set to sit out of the competition, and therefore new colors for RVs were drawn for everyone.
For the next Pit Stop Competition, the final nine departed to the next destination.
|Pit Stop Competition #3|
|This location has been inhabited for at least 4,000 years.|
|This location is the birth place of Starbucks.|
|This location also is home to the Space Needle.|
In the Green RV, Marina rambled incoherently as Renee and Amanda discussed their previous alliance with Emerald. The two agreed that the Fans needed to band together to defeat the Favorites, and they succeeded in gathering Marina in on the plan.
In the Blue RV, Justin and Ashlee continued their antics as they argued over their beauty and modeling contracts with Baylor driving them and ignoring them completely.
As for the Red RV, once again they were lost and had no idea where they were going. It seemed the curse of the Red RV would continue, as Michelle drove them in the wrong direction with Kid and Attention being completely clueless.
After several hours of travel, the Green RV arrived before all the others and completed the task before any others could arrive.
|Pit Stop Competition Winners|
Within hours of arriving, several players explored the location and took pictures for their personal memory.
|*poses in front of the Space Needle*|
Isn't it supposed to be leaning...?
After everyone settled in for Seattle Washington. Michelle began to fear her reception among the other players in the game and decided to take action.
|So...I bet you all were waiting to hear from me!! SO I have a plan to get myself in good with the house, and it's foolproof.|
Michelle began to bond with Marina, talking about life back home, and Kid and Justin joined in on the conversation. They talked about their relationships back home, and Kid discussed his former girlfriend, while Justin discussed his many previous lovers.
Renee accused Michelle of being fake and stated that she trash talked everyone all the time. Michelle denied this, and Renee simply insulted her further by telling her to eat healthy and put down the potato chips.
The Host welcomed them all to Seattle, Washington, and Attention exclaimed that she was home in her city, and that she certainly was going to win VIP status.
In the Power Players RV, Marina, Renee, and Amanda discussed who would receive the Immunity Pass half. They decided to give it to Amanda, seeing as they were all Fans and needed a leg up in the competition.
Amanda received the half and formed a whole, achieving an Immunity Pass that she kept tucked away in her bra.
The six competitors prepared for the VIP competition, with the new Fans alliance hoping they could pull out a win.
During the VIP Competition, Marina ignored the challenge and rambled further about how fear made her stronger as a person, while Amanda frequently shouted at her to shut up and stop talking.
Justin won the VIP Competition, remaining immune for the third straight week in a row. He became confused on how he won, believing there were far stronger competitors than him.
|I don't know what I did, but I hope modeling helps, somehow. I think it was the bike thing? You can't bike without impossibly toned calves. It's illegal, actually, in Washington.|
Justin discussed his extremely toned calves and biking experience with Michelle, and she stated that the only reason she lost the challenge was because she was thinking about her boyfriend, because she was amazing at biking.
Renee then teased Michelle by asking her, "What boyfriend would love you?"
|My sister Renee keeps HATING on me, but EVERY great player in TV Stars HISTORY has had at least ONE HATER, right?|
It came time for America to vote for an MVP. Ashlee strutted for the camera, begging America to vote for her.
However, this was fruitless, as Baylor was voted for MVP status with 60% of the votes.
|Thank you, my fans who voted for me! You are all in my heart! You are all rock stars!|
Elimination loomed for Attention Whore, Ashlee, Baylor, Kid, and Michelle. The Favorites alliance, sans Attention, met to discuss the vote for the future, considering Michelle was the easy vote.
Baylor, the ring leader, discussed potentially blindsiding Attention Whore and voting her out to eliminate the first Favorite (by vote). Ashlee, however, suggested that they get rid of Michelle.
|We should vote out Michelle! I think America hates her...by voting her off, we're going to help her!|
Ashlee began the campaign #DoItForMichelle that spread amongst all the other Favorites, including Attention Whore. But Michelle was not unaware; in fact, she was aware of the Favorite domination moreso than the others.
|I REALLY hope I don't get voted off!! I haven't even gotten to PLAY MY OWN GAME yet!|
Michelle campaigned to stay in the game by exclaiming, "Everyone, PLEASE don't vote for me! I just want to STAY HERE and PLAY!"
Michelle commented that Ashlee was a snake, calling her out for running the shots within the Favorites alliance.
|But I will say that ASHLEE is DEFINITELY a SNAKE!!!! I've seen her game, and if we all work together, we can CUT off her head!|
Ashlee played it off as depression about the game on Michelle's end. Ashlee stated that Michelle needed to go home and calm down.
|I just want to help you!|
|Ashlee YOU need to stop bullying. It's because of people like YOU that other people go and make themselves FAT and that's NOT what we want here!|
Ashlee's innocent play and Michelle's extreme outburst did not help either of their cases. Would Michelle be able to successfully flip the Favorites against Ashlee, or would Ashlee prevail and eliminate her target?
|Backstage Elimination #3|
Michelle (4 Votes)
Attention, Ashlee, Baylor, Kid
Ashlee (1 Vote)
|We did it! I'm glad she's gone, we need to stay in control!|
Michelle became the third Fan voted out in a row, and she exited the elimination zone immediately. Renee giggled as her sister exited the game, seemingly ending the Sibling Rivalry twist.
However, her game was not over. Michelle was introduced to the Revival Room and entered the RV to meet Cupcakke.
Cupcakke explained that she beat Poppy, and Michelle was informed by the Host that she had the chance to rejoin the game, but that she would have to wait for someone else to join the Revival Competition for her to battle against.
If Michelle were to win, she would duel against Cupcakke in the final round to return to the game.

Breaking the Favorites Apart
At the start of Week Four, Renee cackled about outlasting her sister. She revealed to everyone that Michelle was indeed her sister, but nobody seemed to care too much, considering Renee did not seem to like her sister being in the game that much.
Ashlee and Baylor had a conversation in one of the RVs about how they should have given Michelle their autographs on her way out. Justin entered the RV and overheard Baylor discussing her newest album, to which Justin suggested she purchase his album, "I'm Better Than All Those Washed-Up Hacks Who Make Albums".
This insulted Baylor, to which she exclaimed that Justin was being very rude. Justin stated that he never apologizes to people.
The Favorites and Fans both acknowledged that, so far, only Fans had left the game (with the exception of Emerald's evacuation). This prompted Renee, Marina, and Amanda to band together against the others. Despite them being down in numbers, they still had the upper hand - if they could win the Pit Stop Competition and Amanda used her Immunity Pass effectively, they could all be immune and force the Favorites to vote each other out for this round.
Recognizing the possibility of the Fans becoming all-immune, Baylor met with the Just Show Up alliance to discuss voting out Attention Whore as a safety cushion. Meanwhile, Attention, who was left out of this decision, talked to the cameras.
|If I show my knowledge of the game, America will HAVE to give me the MVP.|
The Host announced that it was time for the next Pit Stop Competition, and also announced that RVs would run in leagues of two instead of three for the remainder of the competition.
The outgoing VIP, Justin, chose for Attention Whore and Amanda Bynes to sit out of the competition, ensuring that they would be eligible for elimination unless they won any future competitions.
Everyone then drew for their RVs.
The Host then announced the Pit Stop Competition that would take them to their next location and task for immunity.
In the Green RV, Baylor and Ashlee decided that they needed to win the competition most out of anyone else to ensure the Fans were eligible to be eliminated.
In the Blue RV, Renee and Justin worked together to get to the Pit Stop rather quietly. Renee was against Justin, and Justin was against Renee, and it was no longer a secret.
In the Red RV, Marina rambled incoherently while Kid was unable to drive. Once again, the curse of the Red RV continued, as neither of them were able to get to the Pit Stop.
In the end, Renee and Justin made it alongside Baylor and Ashlee, but Renee and Justin succeeded in completing the task first and thus won the Pit Stop Competition, making both Renee and Justin immune for the fourth week in a row.
|Pit Stop Competition Winners|
After the competition concluded, Marina congratulated Renee on her victory, and stated that she needed to win the VIP Competition to stay immune.
|People might think I'm just a girl who likes chakras but the truth is that even though I do like chakras and I am a girl I actually am maybe wanting to do a power shift and the reason for that is because the power needs to shift.|
Meanwhile, Baylor and Ashlee gossiped about their lives. Ashlee commented that she turned down a Taco Bell commercial to be on the show, and Baylor replied that she turned down several concerts and fan meetings to compete.
The Host announced that it was time for the VIP Competition, but Amanda quickly interrupted him by stepping forward.
|Okay, so f-ck you all. I'm using this.|
She whipped out her Immunity Pass and handed it over to him. After playing the Immunity Pass, Amanda was deemed the immediate VIP of the week. This, however, shocked Marina more than the Favorites that were mostly unaware that she had it. Marina felt that she could win the VIP challenge easily, but without that, she only had to rely on the MVP vote.
Because the VIP Competition was skipped, America was tasked with voting for the MVP. As Ashlee, Attention, and Baylor tried to please America with their looks and charms, Marina pleaded to the cameras to give it to her so that she could upset the Favorites and flip the game.
With an astounding 85% of the votes, Marina Joyce was deemed the MVP for the week, shocking the Favorites. They began to question if America was against them winning the game.
Amanda laughed after her win was announced, cussing at every Favorite. Kid commented that his mother most likely would not like her speaking so foully around him, and asked the Host to stop her.
Attention, Ashlee, Baylor, Kid, and Marina needed to figure out who to vote out for the round. As Marina was immune due to the MVP vote, Baylor, Kid, and Ashlee were left to turn against Attention Whore.
Marina caught wind of the Attention Whore vote and decided to bring it to her attention in an attempt to gain a new ally.
|I HEAR THERE ARE SOME FAKE ASS B-TCHES IN THE TV STARS ROAD TRIP HOUSE...AND I'M THE TARGET. ME??? AFTER ALL I'VE DONE FOR YOU PEOPLE. I HAVE BEEN A BUDDY, A NICE GIRL, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, A FRIEND.|
Marina and Attention decided to vote for Kid, and they needed someone to flip and work with them, and seeing as how Baylor and Ashlee were the leaders of the Favorites alliance, one of them needed to change.
They openly stated that Kid was planning on voting for Ashlee.
|Kid Detective has been spreading LIES ABOUT ME.|
Kid, confused, stated that he was not going against them. Marina pleaded with Baylor to vote for Kid, to which she contemplated, but declined.
|Are you kidding me? Kid is like my brother, and you're like my sister, and Attention is like my crazy aunt. Y'all are my family!|
Upon Baylor refusing to vote for Kid, Marina and Attention pestered Ashlee. In anger at Kid, Ashlee lashed out at him.
|You're breaking the Favorites apart!|
Kid, playing off of the attention he was receiving, stated that he was a mastermind.
|You all stink! Haha! Whoa! I'm a mastermind! I like chess and playing manipulation games with people in a way to make them do what I want!|
After hearing Kid talk about how he was super manipulative, Ashlee began to realize that...he was a kid. She questioned how a child could tell such a big lie about her, and she convened with Baylor to discuss voting for Kid or Attention.
However, Marina and Attention believed that they were not getting anywhere with pushing to eliminate Kid. They talked to Kid, however, and commented that Ashlee was very unstable, and argued that they needed to vote her out.
Would Ashlee be blindsided by Kid, or would Kid be blindsided by Ashlee? Would Attention Whore survive the night?
|Backstage Elimination #4|
Attention (3 Votes)
Ashlee, Baylor, Kid
Ashlee (2 Votes)
Ultimately, Attention Whore was voted out, putting all of Marina's effort to waste.
|I'm so sorry Attention...! I tried to flip the vote, but no one would listen!|
It's CLEAR TO ME NOW that Kid, Baylor, Ashlee, and Justin are a STRONG alliance...the favorites are ALL banding together...! It's time to FLIP THE GAME!!!
However, her game was not over. Attention Whore was introduced to the TV Stars Revival Competition and joined Michelle and Cupcakke in the Revival Room.

Inside, it was announced that Michelle and Attention would compete in a duel. In the next week, the winner would face off against Cupcakke to return to the game.
Ultimately, Michelle defeated Attention Whore, moving on to the final round to compete against Cupcakke. Attention Whore became the third person officially eliminated from the game.

Fans, We Need to Rise Up!
Marina was not happy with Baylor. After Michelle’s elimination, Marina called Baylor out on being the ring leader of the Favorites alliance. Baylor replied that she did not mean to upset her, only that she tends to “keep it real” and not lie about her relationship to her allies.
Amanda insulted Baylor, telling her to shut up.
|EVERYONE KNOWS YOU’RE RUNNING AROUND LIKE A CHICKEN WITHOUT A HEAD TRYING TO RUN THIS GAME. YOU’RE PATHETIC.|
As this argument occurred out in the open in front of the final seven, everyone was able to witness it. Justin commented that he enjoyed drama, but that it was becoming too much, and they all needed to calm down, considering they had to ride together in small RVs to their next destinations.
|I mean, I like drama, but this is just too much. I came here to get actual acting cred so that, when I modeled, people wouldn’t think I was empty-headed. I’m gonna go sit on a couch and pout to myself. That’s logical, right?|
Baylor, feeling attacked by the event, cried in a confessional.
|This is hard without my mom. She’d do anything to protect me right now!|
Marina concluded the argument and stormed off to the Green RV with Renee and Amanda following her.
The three ladies agreed that they needed to find a way to break up the Favorites. Amanda revealed that she possessed an RSVP from completing the Social Media Mogul twist, which enthralled Marina.
They planned to, once again, win the Pit Stop Competition, VIP, and MVP status, with the RSVP being a failsafe if any of them remained without immunity.
Meanwhile, outside of the RVs, Ashlee and Renee began to question why the Pit Stop Competition had yet to be announced. As the day began to come to a conclusion, they had yet to hit the road.
The intensity of not-yet having begun the competitions for the week drove Amanda insane. She exited the RV and began shouting that Justin and Baylor were snakes and rats, resulting in many shocked looks from the Favorites.
Meanwhile, in the Revival Room, Michelle and Cupcakke prepared for the final duel of the season. They were informed that they would be competing for VIP Status, with the winner rejoining the game with immunity.
In the congregation area for the players still left in the game, a mysterious RV pulled into the lot. The final seven clapped and cheered for the reveal of a new twist, but to their surprise, both Michelle and Cupcakke stepped out.
The Host appeared and revealed the existence of the TV Stars Revival Competition. Michelle and Cupcakke, the two victors, were revealed to be competing in a VIP Competition to return to the game. The Host stated that the winner would rejoin with immunity, and there would be no MVP vote for the week.
Also, for the remainder of the game, there would no longer be Pit Stop Competitions.
|I have to win this to show my sister that I’m NOT a FAILURE…|
|HOE HOE HOE TIME FOR AN EARLY CHRISTMAS PRESENT|
Cupcakke and Michelle were explained the stipulations of the duel and returning to the game.
|These so-called “Favorites” are SNAKES and they think they can RUN this game on their own!! Fans, we need to RISE UP!|
|MY VAGINA IS SOAKING WET C’MON BABY YOU CAN PULL THIS OFF|
Michelle succeeded in defeating Cupcakke, making herself the first person to return to the game after being voted out. She cheered and hugged Marina, Amanda, and Renee, and began to cry.
|Now that I’m BACK in the game, it’s time to blow up how these “Favorites” are playing!|
Michelle, now back in the game with VIP status, was assured a position in the jury stage of the game, while the remaining seven were tasked with voting someone out. For the first time in the season, Justin and Renee were not immune.
Kid, shocked at the reveal, questioned if he was a good detective if he did not see the twist incoming. Justin, Baylor, Kid, and Ashlee met to discuss voting out one of Marina, Amanda, or Renee.
Baylor was not paying attention, as she instead watched as Michelle trashed the Favorites to the Fans she was clearly aligned with. The others agreed that Renee needed to go, and Baylor simply nodded her head in agreement.
Meanwhile, Michelle regrouped with the Fans and talked to them about the vote. They agreed that Kid needed to go.
Hours after her return, Michelle became the second Social Media Mogul of the season, as she succeeded in getting Laura Morett from Survivor to tweet to her about TV Stars. This excited her greatly, and she proceeded to bash the Favorites in a confessional.
|I don’t know WHO wanted JUSTIN back, and I’m CONVINCED Ashlee had to sleep with someone to get back on. Kid’s kicking rocks just like he thinks he can kick ALL of us Fans out of the game. Think again, Sher-yuck!|
Without Michelle’s vote, Marina, Renee, and Amanda were still left in the minority. Amanda became upset when she realized she could not play her RSVP at elimination (due to votes being cast one by one).
As the other Favorites cast their votes separately, Renee and Amanda discussed which of them was going home. Amanda stated that she was going, but Renee argued that she was, because the Favorites did not want her playing with her sister and because she had been explicitly informed of her demise.
Which Fan would go? Would Amanda bite the dust, or would it be Renee? Would the Fans somehow catch a break?

In a shocking tie, Baylor voted for the wrong person, resulting in Renee and Kid Detective being stuck in the middle of the vote.
Kid, however, did not realize that Baylor had mis-voted. He turned to Justin at elimination and asked if he had flipped against him.
This annoyed Justin, as he was Kid’s best friend in the game. When it came time for votes to be re-cast, Justin snarled at Kid as those around him stood to cast their re-votes.
It came time for Justin to vote, and he stood to cast his ballot.
|I vote for Kid. He’s asking too many questions, and I don’t like that.|
|Backstage Elimination #5.2|
Kid (3 Votes)
Justin, Marina, Renee
Renee (2 Votes)
In one of the most shocking blindsides of the series, Kid Detective was eliminated from the competition just before the jury stage of the game. All the Favorites, sans Justin, were extremely shocked to see him stand and hobble out of the elimination zone.
Marina, Renee, Amanda, and Michelle exclaimed with glee and exchanged hugs on surviving the vote.
Renee and Michelle exchanged an even longer hug than with the others. Michelle stated that she loved her sister and loved that she was in the game with her, to which Renee smiled. These former adversaries were now a part of the most important alliance of the game.
Now for the first time in the season, the Fans outnumbered the Favorites. Would Baylor, Justin, and Ashlee be able to survive to the final three, or would the Fans give the vicious Favorites their comeuppance?
I Need to Take Risks
At the start of the week, Michelle talked to the Fans about how they needed to keep making big moves to win the competition.
Meanwhile, Ashlee cried over the loss of Kid Detective. She stated that she had no idea what was happening anymore, and continued to sob. Baylor, however, was upset even more with the fact that Kid was out and her alliance had collapsed.
The Host reminded the players that remained that Pit Stop Competitions were no more, and that they would be traveling altogether in one RV to the next destination of the game.
Inside of the new and lavish RV, a large red button rested in the center of the room. The Host explained that this new twist was called the “TV Stars Pause Button”. If three people locked in that they were pressing the button, the game would pause, and the twist would be explained from there.
The final seven immediately boarded the RV and headed out for the next destination – New York City.
As soon as the RV took off, Baylor decided that she wanted to see what the twist was, believing it could be beneficial to the Favorites regaining their control. She hammered her hand down on the button and rose the “Press Count” from zero to one.
Marina noticed this and began to eye the button.
|WHAT A COINCIDENCE!!! I talk about having courage to step into the deep end and suddenly an OPPORTUNITY comes out…!!! Wow. I think, in my life, I need to take risks because that’s what the universe can do for you and it can lead to good experiences.|
Not ten minutes after leaving the previous Pit Stop, Marina stood and slammed her hand down on the button, increasing the “Press Count” from one to two.
Michelle watched as Marina quietly eyed her to tempt her into pressing the button.
|As a SUPERFAN of this game, I can’t NOT press this button and risk an OPPORTUNITY to make HISTORY go to waste!|
Michelle then approached the button and slammed down on it, turning the button green and raising the “Press Count” from two to three.
Amanda recognized that the button had been pressed three times, and told Michelle to quickly un-press it. Unfortunately for them, the button could not be un-pressed. Michelle began to cry over Amanda scolding her, and she begged herself the question – “why did my prefrontal cortex do that!?”
After the button was pressed for the third time, the RV pulled off to the side of the road, and the producer driving the vehicle stepped out as the Host was flown in.
As they waited for the Host to arrive, Marina began to discuss the concept of death, which made Justin upset.
This discussion frightened Michelle, but it was quickly stopped, as the Host entered the RV to address the twist.
He explained that the game was now paused, and that someone would immediately be going home. If the game had been paused after the VIP competition, the winner would retain their immunity through the elimination, and the game would resume to complete the MVP vote. If the game had been paused after the MVP, a double elimination would occur with both immunities retained through both votes.
One by one, the players were tasked to vote someone out, and since nobody had immunity, it was anyone’s game to lose.
Baylor became immediately frightened, as she had just made it to the jury stage of the game and did not want to go home.
|I’m honestly SCARED because it means things are SHIFTING in this game and I’m NOT involved in it!|
With no time to strategize inside of the RV, the Fans, Renee, Marina, Michelle, and Amanda, nodded in the direction of the Favorite they wanted to send out. They all agreed.
Ashlee, Justin, and Baylor were left in the minority, and one of them was about to go home once again.
One by one, votes were cast, and the Host entered the RV with renewal slips. He handed them out one by one until someone was eliminated.
|Backstage Elimination #6|
Baylor (4 Votes)
Michelle (2 Votes)
Amanda (1 Vote)
Baylor was eliminated from the competition after attempting to jumpstart the twist, leaving Justin and Ashlee alone in the game. She became the first member of the jury.
The RV left Baylor behind, and the final six proceeded on without her.
At the next Pit Stop in New York, the six got off and were introduced to the VIP Competition. The description of the Fame Task frightened Michelle, and she was afraid of competing, but recalled what it felt like to be voted out, and decided she would give it her all to win.
|I didn’t want to climb the tower originally, but then I remembered how HORRIBLE it felt when I got CANCELLED and I DON’T want it to happen again!!|
Despite Michelle’s pep talk to herself, Marina won the VIP Competition, leaving Michelle, Renee, and Amanda to vote against Justin or Ashlee.
It came time for America to cast their votes for the MVP. With 70% of the votes, Justin became the MVP, leaving Ashlee alone to be voted out.
Ashlee became afraid of going home. However, it was not the end of the game for her. She and Justin congregated to discuss a way to get one of the Fans out, but all the same, Michelle and Marina were discussing potentially voting for Amanda.
Previously in the past weeks, Amanda revealed that she had an RSVP for becoming a Social Media Mogul. Michelle and Marina asked her to give it to them to prove her loyalty multiple times, but Amanda constantly refused.
Seeing as how Amanda was the fourth person in their alliance, they decided that Ashlee could survive the round and they would instead eliminate Amanda in a shocking blindside.
Marina pulled Ashlee aside and talked to her about the vote, assuring her that she was safe. She thanked her and gave her a hug.
|Oh my God! Safe again! I’m glad these guys have America in mind during these votes!|
At elimination, Renee was informed of the plan, to which she agreed to vote for Amanda instead of Ashlee.
|Backstage Elimination #7|
Amanda (4 Votes)
Ashlee (1 Vote)
Amanda became hysterical that she was blindsided by her closest allies.
|AMANDA I’M SOOO SORRY!!! BUT I REALLY WANTED YOUR RSVP…AND I DON’T HAVE IT!|
With Amanda out of the game now, she stood up and revealed her RSVP to everyone, and stated that she was bringing it with her, because none of the Fans deserved it. She became the second member of the jury.
|How does it feel to be betrayed by your allies?|
|Horrible. Shows you an't trust people.|
|Who are you rooting for to win the game now?|
|Marina or Ashlee.|
|What do you think of the final five?|
|Three out of five of them are lying, backstabbing b-tches.|
I'm a Student of the Game
At the final five, the three remaining Fans and two remaining Favorites had officially made it to the finale of TV Stars Road Trip.
|Wow, I can’t believe I made it. Me? Justin? Total Drama Island? TV Star who got voted out first?|
|I’m a STUDENT of this GAME, and I’m ready to set a NEW STANDARD for how people like to play this game!!|
Justin, Ashlee, Marina, Renee, and Michelle had made it all the way to the final five. Within the next few weeks, three of them would fall and two would make it all the way to the end of the game.
Would Justin be able to go from first out to first place, much like Korra from TV Stars Bollywood?
Would Ashlee be able to make it to the final two for the second time, setting a TV Stars record?
Would Marina be able to beat out her own mind to win the game?
Would Renee be able to defeat her sister and win the competition?
Would Michelle be able to win the game despite already being voted out once?
Right at the start of the week, Justin discussed how he was alone with Ashlee, and that everyone else in the game was a snake. Renee took offense to this and cried, to which Justin did not show any sympathy.
On their way to the next Pit Stop in Pittsburgh, Marina and Michelle had a conversation about how they both were nutritionists. They discussed the pros and cons of veganism, much to the ire of Ashlee and Justin.
|These people are driving me crazy!|
After arriving, the Host welcomed them to their next VIP Competition. Justin and Ashlee needed the victories of VIP and MVP in order to eliminate one more of the Fans to even them out, but would they be able to win the competition?
Michelle won the VIP competition over the two Favorites. She collapsed on the ground, crying, because it had been an eternity since she last won a challenge.
America was then tasked with voting for the final MVP of the season. Justin and Ashlee pleaded for America’s support, but Marina won MVP status instead, resulting in Justin and Ashlee feeling extremely defeated.
To add insult to injury, at elimination, Michelle stood up and pulled out her RSVP.
|So…I have this RSVP pass…that I won…for being a SOCIAL MEDIA MOGUL!|
Renee pleaded for Michelle to use it on her, to which Michelle obliged. She hugged her sister and thanked her for being in the game with her.
Since the three Fans were immune, Ashlee and Justin were forced to vote against each other, with one of them going home regardless of what happened that night.
|I’m SOO happy with the MOVE I just MADE! I’ve been playing my OWN game and the game I’ve WANTED to play since I got back and it’s been AMAZING!|
Ashlee, feeling defeated and overwhelmed, did not bother campaigning to the Fans, only hoping that they saw Justin as a bigger threat than her. Justin did not plead either, keeping his dignity intact.
These two allies, both models with dignity and high egos, were about to meet their maker. Because they were forced to vote against each other, they were not called up to vote – only Renee and Marina were.
Which Favorite would they choose to send home?

Ashlee hugged Justin goodbye and walked out of the game without speaking to the Fans.
At the final four stage of the game, Justin, Marina, Michelle, and Renee boarded the RV and headed for the final destination of the season – Hollywood.
On their way to the final destination, the Host called in over the television in the RV to discuss the finale statistics. He congratulated Justin on being the final Superstar standing, and asked how it felt to be the first person voted out of Tokyo and now the final returning player left in the game.
|I mean, I’m happy. But I fail to see anymore how this will improve my modeling cred. I’m also not in a very important position anymore because everyone is a snake.|
After arriving in Hollywood, the final four exited the RV and prepared for the next VIP Competition of the finale.
Justin sighed and prepared for the worst. Michelle commented to the Host that Justin was only mad because the Favorites blew up their game. Justin did not respond to this comment.
Justin surprised everyone by pulling out a clutch win, granting himself a spot in the final three. The Fans reluctantly congratulated him on his win.
|Thanks! I totally deserve it. I single-handedly won this, for myself, forever.|
With Justin immune, Marina knew that she was going to go home.
|Well, I think it’s safe to say that my universal truth will lead to my DEMISE tonight…!|
Michelle cried over her plan being ruined. Justin basked in his safety and relaxed in the RV while the others prepared for the inevitable. At elimination, Renee and Michelle hugged Marina goodbye before the votes were even sent in.

Marina understood and told the girls that it was okay. Michelle hugged her goodbye, exclaiming that she was happy that she got to know her as a person. She told Marina to go chase her destiny, because she was incredible, and that she was, once again, sorry for voting her out.
At the final three, Justin had a ton of pressure on his shoulders to win the final VIP competition and ultimately the season. Michelle and Renee had the express goal of ensuring he did not win the final challenge.
|I NEED to win this competition so I can secure my SPOT in the FINAL TWO. It’s SUPER IMPORTANT.|
|Let’s do this! Logic activate!|
|3rd Place - 2 Points|
|2nd Place - 4 Points|
|1st Place - 5 Points|
Michelle won the final VIP Competition of the season and a spot in the final two. Renee cheered with her and gave her a huge hug, while Justin moped in the background.
|Justin I respect you SO much as a player and I think it’s AMAZING that you went from the first person voted out to the FINAL THREE!|
At elimination, Justin sighed and sat back as Michelle stood to go cast her vote.
|Backstage Elimination #10|
Justin (1 Vote)
Justin stood and hugged the girls goodbye, congratulating them on their victory.
|Thanks for the opportunity.|
The jurors were brought to Hollywood for the final vote of the season to determine a winner. Baylor, Amanda, Ashlee, Marina, and Justin each congratulated the final two on making it so far.
It was also revealed then that, as the sisters has made the final two together, they each would receive a different prize. The runner-up would receive one million dollars while the winner received two million.
With that said, the jurors questioned the finalists and cast their votes. Marina congratulated the girls further on making it so far, and rambled on about how they were beautiful women.
|I have no questions, f-ck you both.|
The jurors cast their votes for a winner.
Michelle Meyer (3 Votes)
Renee Meyer (2 Votes)
Michelle, despite being voted out once this season, was deemed the winner with three jury votes against Renee’s two, making her the eleventh TV Stars victor in the series.
