A high-school dropout and self-proclaimed "surfer chick" from San Diego, Tawny Kitaen made her way to Hollywood in 1980 with dreams of becoming an actress.
Following his escape, Nate Haskell, the notorious "Dick & Jane" killer, resurfaces when he e-mails a disturbing video to the father of one of his brides, threatening to take her life.
The Final Episode begins with only four contestants remaining. Inspired by the industry standard that true A-List celebrities have their pick of lucrative endorsement deals, the final challenge is to make a commercial. Representatives from goldenpalace.net, an online tutorial site for gambling, come to meet the remaining four cast members and give them the tools to make a 30- second commercial for the website. The winning spokesperson is safe from elimination and guaranteed a spot in the final two! The other three must participate in a secret ballot to vote one of the cast members off the show. This sends the house into a frenzy of scheming and backstabbing. It all comes to a head when the losing cast member decides not to leave without a fight... literally! The remaining two must play one more round of "Back to Reality" to see who will face the Commercial Challenge winner in the grand finale where Kathy Griffin, The Queen of the D-list, will decide who deserves to win the $100,000 prize and be invited back to the A-list!
The five remaining cast-mates are rewarded with an exclusive trip to meet the famous Mayor of Las Vegas. During the visit, the Mayor proclaims that day "Surreal Life Day" and the cast members are ecstatic. The cast returns home and learns of their next trial called "Fan Challenge." After an exhaustive search, our celebs' biggest fans have been brought to the house. In a test of ultimate endurance, these fan club presidents & diehard fanatics are given the mandate to keep their hand on their respective celebrity ALL DAY. If they remove their hand, they will be eliminated from the game. The first 3 celebrities that lose the game will be sent "Back to Reality." In this round, the contestants will view partial soundbites of their fellow cast-mates and will be asked to fill in the blank to win. The first two contests to successfully complete the phrases will be safe while the odd man will be out -- of luck and out of the house!
After a grueling day stuck inside the phone bank, the cast is told they have earned a day to relax poolside. But what they don't know is that this "day off" is actually a competition. As all real A-list celebrities know, you have to be on your game at all times and beware of paparazzi photographers. As our cast lounges by the pool, several photographers sneak around taking photographs of them unaware and unprepared. When the gang returns to the house, they are greeted by Chris Wilson of the infamous New York Post Page Six and find out that their poolside lay-about was really a competition. Chris proceeds to share the incriminating photos from the day -- exposed breasts, questionable embraces, visible butt cracks, etc. The three players that have the worst photos will be sent to the elimination game show, "Back to Reality," where one celebreality misfit will be sent home.
At this stage in the game 7 players remain. Team A-List and B-List are dissolved leaving each contestant alone in their battle for complete celebrity domination. For their first solo competition called the "Famous Friends Challenge," the cast-mates will be tested by the industry standard that equates the image of success, access and power to the little black book and 'who you know.' Armed with a bank of telephones, the players will compete in a telethon of sorts where they will call everyone and anyone they know that is famous. "I have Russell Simmons on the phone." "I've got Venus Williams." "Ludacris is on the line." In the end, pop culture commentator, Kennedy will come in and rank the top 50 celebrities in order of "fame." The contestant with the LEAST number of "famous" people on the phone list will be eliminated from the competition immediately.
Another day and another treat for the A-listers as they attend a gourmet lunch at Spago with their host Robin Leach while the B-listers nosh at a Hofbrau house drinking beer and doing the Chicken Dance. Soon enough though, the treats turn to tricks as the teams learn the next competition is aptly named the "Hooker Challenge." As Hugh Grant & Eddie Murphy have literally testified, few things can damage your A-List reputation more than getting caught with a hooker. Our teams enter a room full of 60 women -- 20 are hookers, and 40 not. The two teams each have a VIP section where they can invite 15 lovely ladies to join them behind the velvet rope. In the end, whoever has the fewest number of working girls in their VIP section will win. The team that loses will again have to choose 3 people to battle it out in the "Back to Reality" game show. This time the game on deck is "The Real Bling." Can these players tell the difference between real and faux? The one who can't will be turned out on the street -- at least now they know people.
A-Lister treats continue as that team is whisked off for a day of pampering while the B-Listers are left behind with a "tonal masseur." The evening turns a little more surreal after a surprise visit from Adrianne Curry and Christopher Knight results in a full-frontal course of 'naked sushi' with all the cast members. Even after Adrianne and Christopher bid adieu the housemates continue drinking late into the night and things get really weird (can you say "rubber chicken shots?") The next morning the sober and hung-over cast members alike are introduced to their next challenge. Each team will have to put on a live Variety show in front of a studio audience at the V Theater. Determined by audience applause, one team will win and be safe from elimination, and one team will send 3 members to the "Back to Reality" competition. In a rousing game of "Celebrity Go Fish," the one player who loses the card game also loses the chance of $100,000 and will be kicked off the show.
The A-List team continues to get top drawer treatment as celebrity chef Todd English arrives at their doorstop to prepare an exquisite meal for them as the less fortunate B-List is ‘treated’ to a hot dog cart in the driveway. Later that night, the two teams come together for a group outing, but instead of good times, the night explodes into a fight of epic proportions over the controversial "strip club" party they are to attend. The next morning there is no time to dwell on the previous night’s controversies, as the teams must face their next task, "Hotel Trash Challenge." Imitating the right of passage ritual of true rock star style, the teams are given identical hotel rooms and the mission of trashing them to see who can do the most damage. What’s at stake? While the winning team will be safe, the losing team must send three of its players "Back to Reality." This time however, after the game, the loser will receive the dubious distinction of being the first celebrity eliminated from the Fame Games competition.
As the dreaded B-List swells to four members, the chasm between the two teams widens as the A-List continues to receive preferential treatment. This time it's a lovely day on the tennis court with fine tennis wear, private lessons, and a champagne brunch in perfect contrast to the Ping Pong, hot wings and beer left for the B-list. The next day, Robin Leach presents them with their third trial, the "Green Screen Challenge." A production staple of most mega-movies, every top star knows how to work in this medium. In this acting challenge, our cast will have to give believable performances without the benefit of being on a location. The scenes will not be easy - fighting with a Yetti in a snowstorm or having to snuggle up to a 'firewoman' - our celebs will really have to pull out all the stops to win the vote of our famous casting producer - who will judge and pick the winner. Once again, three of the losers take their turn at a new "Back to Reality" game called "Whose Bastard Is This?" The contestants will have to successfully identify the two celebrities that have been morphed together in a photo. The loser from this game will be kicked to the B-List making the teams an even five vs. five. From this point forward, the teams will go head to head.
The clear division between the "A" and "B" List becomes apparent as the A-listers receive star pampering at a Las Vegas show while the B's, stuck in their digs, get a less-than-stellar visit from "Marshmallow The Clown." The next day, Robin Leach announces the second challenge -- "Scandal Video." Since every celeb knows that a good public scandal can help launch a new career (or boost a waning one), they are given the task to team-up and record their own version of video-Babylon. Three celebrity guest judges are brought in to screen and choose the winning salacious vid. As the winners are safe, three cast-mates from the losing teams are chosen for the next round of 'Back to Reality,' which may prove problematic unless they can decipher "What's Charo Saying?" The two celebs that 'get lost' in the translation go straight back to the B-List.
They're baaaaaaack! But not in the way one might have expected. Ten of the most notable celebrities from the first six seasons of The Surreal Life have gathered together at a beautiful mansion in Las Vegas, Nevada to have their skills and notoriety put to the test to determine which famous face has the most game. It's equal parts reality show, competition show and game show rolled into one outrageous romp! Host Robin Leach welcomes the gang to the house and lays down the rules - the one celebrity left standing on the red-carpet will win $100,000 and an invitation back to the A-List. The first challenge they face is 'Celebrity Autograph,' pitting celebrity against celebrity in a showdown to see which competitor can get the most fans to request their autograph. The bottom three will be faced with playing our in-house game show 'Back to Reality.' The top player will be allowed to return the mansion while the bottom two, though still in the game, are banned to the dreaded 'B-List', a wing of the house where the lodgings are shabby and the food is crappy.
