With all the arrivals complete, the training room is in full swing. Tonight that meant a sampling of Deal or No Deal, in which a contestant made a deal -much derided by those in the room - for close to $300,000.

Next up was a playlist of some classic YouTube videos including Camp Referee, Thriller Wedding Dance and Robot Dance.

Unfortunately our internet connection was in appalling form, and we had to wait a good 10-15 minutes between videos. The time was passed by passing around the new 2008 U.S. Men's National Team Media Guide, as yet unseen by many of the European guys. Of particular note, as pointed out by Carlos and Tim, was Benny’s facial hair, which he claimed was drawn on him in the editing room.

Finally, we wound down the night with some Mythbusters in which the hosts tried to figure out how a person could survive a fall off a sixty-foot building. Perhaps next week they’ll debunk the mystery of the media guide goatee.
