Today's challenge is to pick theme songs for seven Total Drama contestants. One person from each team must e-mail me their list of songs, indicating which character the song belongs to and why they chose it. Please send two songs, a main song and a back-up song. The back-up song will be used if both teams send the same song (the team who sends their e-mail first will get to use their main song). A link to the song on youtube must be provided, preferably with lyrics. I will judge how well the song fits the character. Whichever team has the most well picked songs will win immunity.
The challenge is due by tomorrow at 6:00 PM EST.
Both teams submitted songs for Dakota, Justin, Owen, Geoff, Harold, and Bridgette. The Flaming Flamingos also did Anne Maria, while the Beaming Boars went with Tyler.
For Dakota, the Beaming Boars chose Paparazzi by Lady Gaga. The Flaming Flamingos chose When I Grow Up by The Pussycat Dolls. Both songs are very fitting, however I feel Paparazzi is more about a girl chasing a famous guy (which is why I find it commonly used for Sierra) and not about a girl craving fame, like Dakota. The point goes to the Flaming Flamingos.
For Justin, the Beaming Boars chose I'm Sexy and I Know it by LMFAO. The Flaming Flamingos chose the same song, and their back up song is SexyBack by Justin Timberlake. After carefully examining the lyrics of both songs, I find I'm Sexy and I Know It to fit Justin more. Justin doesn't seem interested in girls, just himself and his sexyness. One point for the Beaming Boars.
For Owen, the Boars picked Eat It by "Weird Al" Yankovic and the Flamingos picked Walking on Sunshine by Katrina & The Waves. I find Walking on Sunshine to be a strange song, considering it's all about how exciting it is to be in love, but I'm disappointed in the choice of Eat It focusing solely on Owen's eating. Despite these two shortcomings, I choose Eat It as the winner. Point to the Boars.
For Geoff, the Boars chose Last Friday Night by Katy Perry and the Flamingos chose Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO. Two party-oriented songs; Party Rock Anthem sounds more like a Geoff kind of party, so the Flamingos win the point. The score is tied, two to two.
For Harold, the Beaming Boars chose White and Nerdy by "Weird Al" Yankovic. The Flaming Flamingos also chose that, with their back up song being The Super Mario Theme by an Unspecified Artist. The Mario theme has no words and I don't think Harold ever referenced video games. Point to the Boars.
For Tyler, the Boars picked Eye of the Tiger. For Anne Maria, the Flamingos picked Get Crazy by LMFAO. I don't think either songs nails the characters. Tyler never seems to over come obstacles like Eye of the Tiger is about, while Get Crazy is all about partying and guys requesting for girls to expose their breasts. I suppose Get Crazy could reference Anne Maria's Jersey Shore-esque life style, so I give the point to the Flamingos. The score is three to three, the next song will decide it.
For Bridgette, the Boars picked Surfin' USA by The Beach Boys. The Flamingos chose the same song, and picked I Like It Like That by Hot Chelle Rae as their back up. While I enjoy the song I Like It Like That more than Surfin' USA, I think Surfin' USA fits Bridgette's personality better. The Beaming Boars score the point, and win immunity!
The Flaming Flamingos will have to vote somebody out. One member of the team will receive an e-mail about an immunity idol.
