Immunity began this contest threatening an all hip-hop format. When the four o'clock break arrived, they called for each team to send down its member "who most closely resembled L. L. Cool J." The participants gathered in Baxter Lounge and played a funked-up variation on the "Whose Line Is It, Anyway?" improv game: an Immunity member started a rhyming couplet, and each participant then took turns finishing the previous couplet and busting a phat new rhyme. Anyone who couldn't complete the rhyme given them was eliminated. (Props to the woman whose verses were keepin' it real: she spat out more misogyny than Sir Mix-A-Lot.)
