- January 20
Last time, riding still proved to be a challenge,
and the slicks swore they would do something about it. But the question
remains... Will it work?
Day 8, 6:45a. Just a reminder that tomorrow, one
person will be eliminated. Rocco wants to see everyone try. "Don't make the
decision easy for us." Anthony asks everyone who thinks they have the
possibility of being eliminated... Everyone raises their hands.
Day 8, 9:30a. Calf dressing. It's simple. Rope a
calf, then drag him into the circle and put panties on him. "I borrowed these
from Rocco, so don't rip'em." The slicks have three minutes.
Ryan and Kalia are first. "Come on, you little
(^_^)!" Ryan gets the calf roped, while Kalia gets one leg into the panties
before... Kick! No time, but good effort. Ryan didn't get ANY help.
Dan and Gina are next. Gina tries to lure the
calf with hay... Doesn't work. It's like offering someone a hamburger while they
get beat up. The calf's down.... dressed....and across the line in 1:56!
Joe and Trish are up next. Joe let's go of the
rope, but reclaims him. Joe gets him down... or the other way round. They're
across the finish line in :52. "I see a fire in Joe. He's trying harder than
Anthony's got the rope, while Kimberlie tries
(and fails) to get the kit on. Anthony gets the cow in again, and Kim gets the
kit on, while Anthony leads the calf across the line in... 2:46. Joe & Trish
win! Kimberlie whines about it. Judd: "In Cowboy U, you're either whining or
winning." Everyone says that Kimberlie's a big chicken for what she did. Kalia
says she can be motivational, but at other times, not so much. Ryan's being
honest: "If a girl goes tomorrow, it'll be you."
So much for the motivational speaker.
Day 9, 8:30a. Buffalo Doctoring. That's a lot of
game meat right there. These guys have a lot of power behind them. Kimberlie's
first to stick a needle into these giant creature. Trish, meanwhile, gets to
look for parasites. Dan, meanwhile, forgets the fundamental difference between
male and female.
Day 2, High noon. Today, we're going to
illustrate the proper use, safety, and discharge... of firearms. "And I'm going
to teach this, because I'm the fastest pistol arrow at Cowboy U." So says
Rocco... "Hey Rocco! You yellow-bellied city slicker, I'M the fastest gun at
Cowboy U." So says Judd...
So begins a gunfight at the GSNN Corral... The
victim... 12 sad balloons. Winner: Judd. Today, they're using black powder fired
from a Colt 45. We don't want anyone to go shooting off these babies, so we
won't illustrate. Meanwhile, everyone feels an adrenaline rush.
Now we're going to go on to cowboy mounted
shooting, and Outlaw Annie's back!
And once again, it's a sordid tale of bad
performance. Trish herself looked like they were sleepwalking. But at least she
shot a balloon. Ryan... is slower than Trish. And he called Outlaw Annie
"dude"... What the hell...
Ryan, who seems to be totally fine with a ranch
that hates him and a horse that wouldn't run if his life depended on it, comes
up with another excuse for his work... blaming his horse. Annie tries riding his
horse... and seems not to have a problem with it. Anthony also has no problem
Night 7, 9p. Rewards/Elimination. First up...
Reward goes to Joe, who's been kicking butt in the past two days. He gets a
phone call home to his family.
But for every good, there's a bad. Who wants to
be here the most?
"Ryan, I'm going to have to ask you to leave. You
don't seem to have a temperament for being a cowboy. A man's greatest strength
is knowing his limitations, and I respect you for that."
And it's not over yet. For the first time in
Cowboy U history, another person is to be cut. "Kimberlie, we're going to have
to ask you to leave also. You set a limit on how far you're going to go."
So sooner than expected, we're down to six. No
one saw the double elimination coming, and this competition is getting pretty
ugly. And the eliminations continue until we have four...
