The morning paper arrives and informs The Surreal Life residents that they'll be participating in a 'Battle of The Bands' with aspiring teen musicians a la School of Rock. Though the kids are scared by Brigitte's leopard-print bathing suit, they're all excited by the opportunity to rock with such seasoned vets.
The Surreal Gang take a road-trip to San Diego to see Charo perform her show. One problem:only one room! So it's gals vs guys in who makes more money and gets the room. Brigitte "falls in lust" with one of Charo's male dancers from her show.
Spooky Surreal Life Ghosts! The gang go to a abandoned mental hospital with Ghost-hunter Dr. Larry Montz. A truly scary episode. Perfect to view on Halloween! Dave goes solo, Charo with Jordan, Flav with Bridgitte and Ryan does not do it.
The Surreal gang get a "Family Portrait" taken. When they get back home, they get a surprise: Sally Jessy Raphael is waiting for them to go live with her "Dirty Laundry" show. And a lot of "secrets" are revealed.
