Episode 3.10 - November 18
Julie McCracken has been on every single episode and
is ready to meet Joe. Land Kligermand is ready for the
unexpected. Monica Travis is ready to be competitive,
Ryne DeGrave is ready to win the $50,000, Kristina
Justinano is ready to do what it takes - even if it
includes lying, and 33 year old Shawn Hauser is ready to
take the young 'uns to school.
Two of them will be ready to go home as we get to the
first stunt, which involves a ladder, some flags and a
helicopter. You have to move to the ladder from the
platform of a speeding truck, and you have to release
flags while climbing up the ladder. The slowest man and
woman will be leaving the show earlier than planned.
Ryne is first - and Joe makes fun of his name. Land is
making fun of everyone - including Ryne, who looks like
a model, and Shawn, who is full of muscles and tattoos.
Land is the lightweight of the group (think red-haired
Jon from Survivor) and he has worn out with welcome with
Shawn says that the tattoos will make him go faster -
especially the one of his wife on his neck. While he's
talking, Ryne completes the stunt in 39 seconds. That's
the time that Shawn has to beat - and he is using all
arms, which Joe doesn't think is smart. It doesn't
matter what Joe thinks - Shawn gets into the groove and
flies - good enough for 29 seconds. Shawn is
representing the muscle dudes...
...and little Land, according to Shawn, "is worse than a
woman - he can't shut up." Land will be shutting Ryne up
if he gets it done quicker than 39 seconds. He does get
caught twisting on the ladder - but he gets it done in
37 seconds. The model will be making good-bye poses as
Time for the ladies to show their rung raising
abilities. Kristina is going first - and is setting the
bar. The bar, unfortunately, is set pretty low, as she
has problems unlatching the flags. She gets it done in
40 seconds - and that is what Monica needs to beat.
"Monica is all legs," says Joe, and with no upper body
strength, she is in trouble - 48 seconds worth.
All Julie needs to do is to beat 48 seconds. All she
does instead is to commit the dumb-ass move of the
episode by grabbing the second lowest rung of the
ladder. By doing that, she can't get her feet on the
ladder and she falls off. Monica and Kristina advance
due to stupidity.
This time around, people will need to do better than
hoping that the other person does something stupid. They
may need to hope that the other people have weak
stomachs, as Joe unleashes buckets of cow and pigs
parts, super worms, and rotting fish parts. You have to
clear the lovely buck items with your mouth, for at the
bottom of the buckets are numbers which are the
combination to the locks that they are chained to. After
they get out of the locks, they have to take a pigs foot
in their mouth and drop it in a bucket. Whoever is the
slowest person will be putting their face in nasty stuff
Kristina goes first - and she gets it done in 3:10. It
seems like a decent time, but everyone else thinks that
it's too slow. Monica thinks that she can get it done in
2 and a half minutes, but she is getting hampered by
Kristina, who is yelling out numbers while Monica is
working out the combination. Kristina's yelling pays
off, as it breaks her concentration and it confuses her
to the point that she almost quits. she gets it done -
but it's in 5:07 and she wants to dump Kristina in the
bucket of rotting fish parts.
All the guys have to do is beat 5:07 - but Shawn, the
big muscleman, has big fat fingers, and he can't get the
combination locks open. That, plus Monica doing what
Kristina did to her, leads to him completing the stunt
in a turtle-like pace of 6:39. Shawn needs to do the
same thing to Land - but he doesn't, and the women, who
would much rather face a scrawny Land than a muscle boy
Shawn in the finals, don't screw up Land either. Land
gets it done in 2:17 - and that's enough to get rid of
We are down to 3 people - and one last stunt. This one
is pretty cool - the contestants get to drive a
sportscar under a big rig for as many times as they can
until they run out of road or until they wipe out.
Whoever traverses under the truck for the most amount of
times wins the money. KIDS - DO NOT TRY THIS ONE AT
Monica starts the shebang off - and she is very
tentative. Very tentative does not win you squat - but
she does pick up the pace. She gets to 6 when she spins
out with 370 feet left of road. Could that last spin-out
be a $50,000 error?
Kristina would like to hope so - and wants to set the
bar up high so that Land would be overzealous and make
some mistakes. Joehas been very impressed with how
Kirstina plays the game - and he will continue to be
impressed as she gets 8 laps done. Once again, she gets
the best of Monica, and this time, Monica pays the
severe penalty of being eliminated.
Now the other strategy that she had would be for Land to
be overzealous and spin-out. It may work - Land has a
ton of speeding tickets. He isn't overzealous at all -
he is too conservative and he only gets 5 laps. Fear was
not a Factor, but psychology was, and Kristina, the
master of psychology, gets to pay for college with a
$50,000 scholarship - and straight As.
