I Love Money 2 Recap: A Stinking Pit of Mud

Season 2 of I Love Money began exactly the same way that the first season did…with the reality stars on boats, heading for the shore. The boats took them almost to dry land and they had to jump overboard with their bags and get to shore. Leave it to VH1 to set up their entrance in the most humiliating way possible. ;-)

Once they arrived at the mansion, host Craig J. Jackson explained all the rules and sent them off to claim their beds, make alliances and choose the first team captains. During Craig’s talk, It looked as intelligent as ever, standing there with his mouth open. (Is this guy for real?)

When the gang started to frantically claim their beds, Frenchy had her own way of marking her territory:

The Entertainer got right down to business by setting up an alliance to get rid of Buddha. We’ll see how well that works out…

Of course, Tailor Made was down with getting rid of Buddha too.

Meanwhile, Buddha starts the trash talk about The Entertainer. These two have had their issues since I Love New York 2. It’s not taking long for the drama to start.

Leilene seems to be back to her stripper ways when she and Angelique sunbathe topless in the pool togeter. Saaphyri immediately calls Leilene out for going against her Charm School stance against stripping.

Next, the checks are cut for everyone and they one-by-one get up and tell the group what they will do with the money if they win.

Then Craig tells them to all put on their bathing suits and takes them outside to a huge, disgusting pit of mud. He told them that the mud came straight out of the sewers in Huatulco, Mexico and had coins hidden in it. One by one they would have to go in and try to find coins and the two with the most coins would be the team captians. YUCK!!

Leilene went first:

The Entertainer looked like a giant chocolate statue after he was finished:

T-Weed got second place with 22 coins:

20 Pack won with 26 coins:

So the team captains were now T-Weed & 20 Pack. Everyone started to jockey for positions and were trying to make secret alliances. Yep! The drama was in full force now.

T-Weed began to talk to Buddha about strategy. The Entertainer was definitely not pleased.

Then it was time for the captains to pick their teams.

When Craig asked Myammee why she was wearing only lingerie, she answered him, “Whatshername had bathing suits on last season, so I figured why not lingerie?”

Yeah. Megan’s definitely a role model…

20 Pack’s team consists of The Entertainer, Heat, Prancer, Frenchie, Saaphyri, Cali, Tailor Made and It.

T-Weed’s team consists of Onix, Bonez, Myammee, Buckwild, Milf, Buddha and Ice. T-Weed gets the last choice between Leilene and Tamara. He made them arm wrestle for the spot on the team.

Leilene won, giving her the final spot on the team. Tamara had a huge hissy fit over being eliminated. So that’s the beginning of what I can only guess will be a crazy season of I Love Money.
