It's A Dirty Game, But Someone Has To Play It The shores of Huatulco, Mexico are about to be crashed again, as 19 not-so lucky-in-love cast members from Flavor of Love, Rock Of Love, I Love New York, and now Real Chance of Love, battle it out for a chance to win $250,000. Two captains will emerge after a quick dip in the mud, and the strategizing will begin all over again. New alliances will form, while old rivalries will be rekindled. But a melt down of monumental proportions occurs when one person is not chosen to be on either team.
Stripper Moves The Green and The Gold teams face off in The Boston Knockout Challenge; a boxing ring suspended over the ocean, where the players attempt to knock their opponent out of the ring and into the water.

Meanwhile, in an attempt to stay in the game, the weakest player puts the moves on the paymaster, who must ultimately make a decision between heart and mind.
It's In The Cards The teams face off against each other in a 3-on-2 soccer showdown. Strategy comes into play, though, as each team gets to select their opposing teams' two defenders.

Who will the Paymaster choose? It's anybody's guess up until the last moment!
Kiss My... With 16 money lovers left, fighting for cash, there's a whole lot of backstabbing and butt kissing going on. In this next challenge, The Gold team and The Green teams go "cheek to cheek", but when two team members throw the challenge and, ultimately cause a loss, a new alliance is exposed. The reason for this sabotage is a dislike for a controlling team member who is considered a "poison". Will the losing team realize this, and cut the bad seed loose, or will they be too intimidated? In the most dramatic elimination ceremony yet, an unexpected twist results in not just one, but two people going home. Finally, karma wins out.
Alliances Are Dead - Or Are They? After a surprising double elimination and an added twist of switching up the teams, the Money Lovers are all shook up. It's questionable whether the original Gold Team alliance is still in tact, and everyone knows they'll have to dig deep inside and do whatever it takes to win the first challenge with the new teams. The possibility of a secret alliance between two friends begins to raise suspicions with the bullies of the house as they scramble to retain control of the game. As a result, other members of the house realize it's time to join forces or be forced out of the house.
The Chickens Who Come Home To Roost Having uncovered an original team alliance as still being alive and well, a new secret alliance unites to protect its members and to swing the balance of power in their favor. Using brains over brawn, the new alliance executes a plan to break apart the other regardless of the outcome in a repeat of last season's challenge - the chicken-a-pult! Anger and tears erupt and alliances are exposed when two of the strongest competitors suddenly find themselves pleading their loyalties to a conflicted Paymaster for a chance to stay in the game.
Are You There, God? It's Me... The Green and Gold teams, and their respective alliances, struggle for dominance of the house, knowing that now is an opportunity to swing the numbers their way. In the Fire and Ice Challenge both teams scramble to free coins from an giant ice block. Turns out having alliance members on the opposing team pays off as sabotage costs one team the game. The two sabotaging players are obvious choices for possible elimination, which leaves the third a Herculean task; sway the paymaster to their alliance in order to stay alive.
How Do You Say 'Implosion' In Spanish? Eleven people remain in the house, and the lines between Green and Gold Teams have blurred even more. Alliances are color-blind, as certain players on either team attempt to sabotage the team that they are technically on. Each team is suspended from a giant crane above water and must untangle their twisted ropes in the fastest time to avoid the threat of elimination. The true competition takes place after the challenge, though, as players work overtime to forge allegiances and backstab others. When the alliance that once held all the power in the game, starts to distrust each other, the results are explosive.
Thrown Under The Bus After the last elimination, the money lovers are told there are no more teams and they're now competing as individuals. Yet even though the teams are dead there are two alliances that are still living strong. At their first individual challenge, the race to throw each other "under the bus" begins. In the end, one alliance wins Pay Master while a member of the opposing alliance becomes the dead last loser. In one of the most enticing power outings yet, a deal is placed on the table that will test the true colors of a money lover.
You Made Your Bed, Now Lie In It With just nine people remaining in the house, the stakes are higher than ever. At the challenge, the money lovers must put their bed hopping skills to the test to avoid going into the box. The winner, although immune from going home, is put in a hard position; he must consider sending home one of his most trusted allies, in order to make a power play with the other side. Will friendship prevail, or will the lure of money make even the most loyal individuals cave?
You Can Scream All You Want A last-minute deal before the previous elimination threatens to completely crumble a struggling alliance, while behind closed doors, a new secret alliance begins to form. The more outspoken players finally have an advantage over their quieter counterparts in one of the game's loudest challenges; an old-fashioned screaming match. While some players assume their safety from the deals they've made, others scramble frantically to avoid elimination. Relationships break apart and blatant backstabbing ensues. All bets are off, however, when the Paymaster makes the decision to send home the most unsuspecting player, in the most surprising elimination yet.
Can You Hang? A life-preserver challenge rocks the ruling alliance.
