Camper crew 2 hits the road with MTV in tow

July 09, 1996|By Tamara Ikenberg | Tamara Ikenberg,SUN STAFF

Imagine a Winnebago decked out just as MTV-perfect as the "Real World" condo, and you've got the living quarters for the five adventurers of the show's spin-off, "Road Rules."

In the second season of this country-spanning voyage, the youngsters pick up a series of clues at various locales that direct them toward destinations where they perform escapades from environmentally correct shark-tagging, to sky diving, to buying Cheez Whiz -- all while still looking really good.

Forced to live on a fixed budget, the participants must give up all their plastic money and learn to cooperate financially, as well.

The cast is, surprise diverse!

From a midwestern homecoming queen, to an Israeli army officer, viewpoints and personalities are bound to collide within the wacky Winnebago.

Timmy is a Hugh Grant-esque Irish bartender; Christian is a Norwegian business student and great outdoorsman; Devin is a dread-locked Cleveland resident determined to make his mark; Emily is the homecoming queen, no to mention the president of the Future Homemakers of America, and Efrat is the motorcycle-riding Israeli army officer.

Tension starts to mount as the crew discovers Efrat (Effie) is the only smoker. Better keep those lungs clear if you're going to outswim those sharks.
