Jake blogs about Eric, Latterian’s poolside activities during a past Challenge.
First he brought us stories about himself; now, Road Rules‘ Jake Bronstein is digging through his archives to provide us stories about past seasons of MTV shows.

His latest blog post documents the time Eric Nies and Laterrian answered the question, “Hey, you ever shoot pool water out of your ass when you were young?” Jake frames the story as recounting the time he “went to Jamaica with some friends,” which is apparently the Battle of the Sexes Challenge, but really, who can tell them apart?

Anyway, in addition to photographic evidence of Eric and Laterrian deflowering pool water, Jake also has a story and picture featuring Laterrian “drunk and naked on the roof.”
