Episode 3.14 - January 5
We are back for the new years - and my new year's
resolution for this article is to not invoke the "Twins"
song of Kid Rock when we discuss the twins episode. Will
Joe Rogan's resolution be to make sure the contestants
not do anything painful? After this episode, you know
the answer will be a clear, resounding - NO.
But before we get to that, let's get to the first stunt
- each twin will get to hang on one side of the
helicopter. They then have to drop in a set of boxes,
grab a flag and swim over to the Fear Factor platform.
If either of them miss the set of boxes, they have to
swim to a penalty buoy and take the flag from there,
then swim to the Fear Factor platform. The twins that
get there the slowest will be singing a different Kid
Rock song - Grit Sandwiches for breakfast, because
that's all they could afford with the money that they
will win on the show - $0.
The first set of twins are Becky and Jessie O'Donohue
from Dobbs Ferry, New York. They feel like they are
invincible, according to their opening introduction.
Apparently, invincibility does not include falling on
boxes, because they both miss their targets and they
both have to go to the penalty buoy. That's not very
good. After going through my head and thinking of all of
the Kid Rock songs that I know, the twins finally finish
the stunt in 2:03. "That's not a really good time," says
Joe, understating the obvious.
Rick and Rod Carter, from Murfressboro, TN are looking
to "Wax the Booty" of Becky and Jessie - but they also
fall off the boxes and that gives me more time to think
of more bad Kid Rock references. The get on their "Fist
of Rage" swerve on (I told you it was a bad reference)
as they overcome the penalty to get it done in 1:44.
They advance to the next day, and the women are still
twisting in the wind. Rick and Rod's stomachs are
twisting in the wind to, as they use the Fear Factor
grass as their own personal Upchuck Bucket.
It's appropriate that Slade and Trask Bradbury, Phoenix
AZ are rock guides - Slade gets the flag - but Trask
falls off and it's off to the penalty buoys for him,
too. He is a much better swimmer than either of them so
far as he gets the stunt completed in 1:30, so the
O'Donohues are hoping that their female counterparts,
Tammy/Debbie Young (from Waddsworth, OH) both have to go
to the penalty buoys - and get attacked by the creature
from the Black Lagoon.
Will the Youngs be "Drunk in the Morning"? It looks like
it so far, as Tammy also misses the stacks of boxes.
Debbie hits the boxes, and that may have kept them in
the game, since they are both slower in terms of
swimming than the O'Donohues. It's going to come down to
a matter of second, as the Youngs finish in....1:57. The
Youngs escape by 7 seconds, and the O'Donohues have to
walk the "Lonely Road of Faith" and shame as they are
We have 3 sets of twins left - and we see that
something's a-buzzing - BEES! Lots of bees - hundreds
and thousands of them. One of the twins will be shackled
to two poles as they are covered in bees. The other twin
will be going through bee-covered boxes for the keys to
unlock the shackled twin. The slowest twins will be
stung by not going to the finals.
Tammy and Debbie go first - and she has no problems with
the first box. She has plenty of problems with the
second box as Debbie is being turned into a human
honeycomb. Tammy accidentally swats the key out of the
box and it takes her a full minute for her to get it.
They get it done in 1:55, but they are immediately sent
to the medics and it looks like Debbie is in a lot of
pain. They come back and Debbie has over 30 stings and
her whole left side is covered in welts. I believe the
buzz around here could be lawsuit...
Did the other 2 twins learn from the women? It seems so,
as the Carters blaze through it in 1:08 and Slade/Trask
get it done in 1:18. Tammy and Debbie are covered in bee
stings - and are now a;sp covered in misery as they
leave the show.
It's time for the final stunt - and it involves 2
dummies. No not the twins - 2 crash test dummies in the
back of the car, The twins are in the front of the car,
and when it's completely submerged, the twins have to
free themselves and the dummies and get out of the car.
The first team to do it wins the 50 large.
Trask and Slade win the coin toss and they elect Rod and
Rick to go first. Maybe they shouldn't have - they get
it done in an amazing time of 19 seconds and were just
about flawless. Not only do the geology twins need to be
perfect, they need to be faster. They start out blazing,
and they get out of the car quicker, but they place the
dummies in the wrong area at the finish line. Does it
come back to haunt them? No - because even with the
screw-up, they were able to get it done in 18 seconds.
That's good for the win and the $50,000 as we hear the
song "Cocky" fade into the distance... but they deserve
