Nip/Tuck 4.03 Spoilers

This episode should air on October 3, 2006.

Christian is at the gym with Fabio, his trainer. Christian finds out he is not in the best shape possible. Christian tells Fabio that he has a real job and does not have time to workout that much but then notices another plastic surgeon named Dr. Mike Hamoui having a much easier time working out. Christian later finds himself in the showers at the same time as Mike and checks out his very fit body. Mike notices Christian's staring and starts a conversation with him. Mike knows who Christian is and praises what McNamara/Troy has done for the plastic surgery business. Then Mike reveals that his business is booming and Christian becomes jealous of Mike's body and success. Christian asks Mike how he makes time for both and Mike confesses that he does not eat and goes to the gym any time he has a spare moment.

Just as Christian is about to leave the gym, he spots Matt and confronts him about not calling. Matt is not in a mood to talk and they have a confrontation. Christian makes some reference to Kimber as "Hari Kimber", it seems that she is on some sort of spiritual mission perhaps.

Meanwhile, Sean and Julia are interviewing nurses to help with their soon to be born son. It appears that the baby will be handicapped and need reconstructive plastic surgery. They speak to a woman named Monica Wilder who says all the right things and impresses the McNamaras. After the interview, Monica needs a ride home and Sean offers to take her. Monica and Sean have some small talk in the car but seem to have bonded during their conversation. Suddenly we see that Sean and Monica are at a motel having sex.

Later on Sean calls Julia and tells her that he has run out of gas and will get home as soon as he can. Julia hopes that Monica got home first so that she does not have a bad impression of them. Sean feels the guilt about what he has done and tells Monica that it would not be the best idea if she worked for them. Monica agrees but blames herself for ruining a great opportunity. Sean feels sorry for her and agrees to give her a nose job as a parting gift.

The next day Christian visits Mike's office for a quickie "lunchtime liposuction" procedure. Christian notices that Mike's operating room is better than his. During the procedure, Christian realizes that he feels degraded by having such a successful and toned man see his flaws. They get into a testosterone sparring match and then Mike asks Christian why Sean is not able to perform this procedure on Christian. All Mike gets in response is an excuse.

RW/RR Challenge Scoop

Filming of the next upcoming Real World/Road Rules Challenge is already underway in Brazil. No word on when an airdate but it would likely be after The Real World Key West has its finale on August 8th and the Fresh Meat Challenge has its finale on September 11th. Castmembers we can expect on the Brazil challenge are from Real World Beth S., Aneesa, and another quad group from the most recent Real World season Paula, John, Svetlana and Tyler. Derrick and Tina are the only members from Road Rules known at this time with an exception of Casey (Wes' partner) from the Fresh Meat Challenge, who will potentially become considered part of the Road Rules gang. Further speculation is that Derrick and Casey end up hooking up so I guess that does not mean well for Derrick's romance with Diem. Those people who are already revealed to have made the return trip home from Brazil are John and Paula (big surprise) as well as Tina. No word on weather or not anyone from Austin decided to try their luck again on this challenge.

As for the Fresh Meat Challenge, there is speculation that the winner has already been leaked. Stop reading now if you don't want to know. Ok, fair enough. Supposedly Darrell's winning streak does not end as he and Aviv walk away with the $250k.

30 Days News & Update

One of the summer's best reality TV shows is coming back soon! 30 Days will be back on air on Wednesday, July 26th at 10pm eastern on FX. If you have not heard of this show or watched it when it was on last summer, it is a documentary about someone who lives a life drastically different from their own for 30 days. This show is produced by Morgan Spurlock, who is the genius behind the movie Super Size Me. If you want to catch up on last season's 6 life changing episodes, the first season DVD will be released on July 11th in anticipation of the season 2 premiere. Those of you who are familiar with the show will be happy to know that Morgan was the subject of one of the episodes again for the upcoming season. While there are no details yet about what the topic of this episode entails, it is sure to be a great follow up to Morgan and Alex's minimum wage experiment last season. Speaking of Morgan and Alex, you all will be happy to know that they got married in Fiji on May 3rd this year. Best wishes to them!

Update on 6.15.06: Want to know where Morgan Spurlock will be spending his 30 days in season 2? That would be at the Henrico County Jail in Virginia. The episode was filmed in February and will focus on drug addiction rehabilitation as well. Some other topics that will be covered in the second season of 30 Days are immigration (immigrant family living with border patrol officer), abortion and outsourcing. This six episode season will end on August 30th.

Update on 7.21.06: I'm anxiously awaiting the premiere of this wonderful and thought provoking series. I have learned the topic of this season's 6 episodes, they are in order: Immigration 9anti-immigation man living with immigrant family), Outsourcing (man who los job due to outsourcing goes to India to live with the people who replaced him) , Athism (Athiest mom lives with evangelical christian family) , New age therapies (man with anger issues learns new age techniques), Abortion (pro choice woman who has had an abortion lives and works in a pro life center) and Incarceration (Morgan gets thrown in jail).
