Episode 3.18 - February 2
So last week nothing happened except some prizes
changed hands and some people got more irritable at each
other. Those irritable people, Adam and Meg, want to
take it out by getting rid of another team - any team -
but preferably Melissa and Jim, since they are the arch
rivals - and they have Adam and Meg's set of wheels.
Will that happen - or will Adam and Meg get hoisted by
their own petard?
Meg and James, conversely, haven't won squat - but they
only want to win the last one for a million. This stunt
will be for a hundredth of it - but for $10,000 and a
pair of underwater digital cameras, this isn't too bad.
The guy has to climb up a rope and hand the woman 2
keys, which unlock doors to a cage that will free them.
The catch? both the cage and the ropes are being flown
around by a helicopter.
Jackson and Monica start us off - and Monica still hates
Meg, while Jackson was hoping that this was an
elimination stunt, because he predicts that he will beat
half of the teams with no problems. He may be right on
that, since they get it done in 46 seconds.
Jim and Melissa, who now have the jeeps, are next up.
Despite Jim nailing his head on the top of the cage,
They nail it quickly in 37.7 seconds and Jackson/Monica
may be happy that it wasn't an elimination stunt.
Adam and Meg are third - and they think that if they
beat Jim/Melissa, then they are set. Adam kisses his
biceps for good luck, and away they go. Adam goes flying
up the rope, and although Meg is slow with the key, they
finish it in 37.5 seconds - and there goes the 10 grand.
Everyone thinks that the money is Adam/Meg...
But here comes James and Meghan, and James is determined
to finally get them on the board. The determination will
happen on the next stunt, as James's technique of
getting up the rope was the wrong one. He didn't even
get up the rope until more than 40 seconds elapsed, and
James, once again, is the reason why they have no money.
It's only Todd and Rachel who are left - and Adam/Meg
are already spending the money in their mind. They can
spend it in real life as Todd also can't get up the
rope. At least James made it all the way up -Todd
decided that he's had enough and quits, jumping in the
water and leaving Rachel in the cage. James pumps his
fists in the air and says that he felt like he won
$10,000. Rachel gives Todd a talking-to, and Todd is
concerned about that - as Rachel is concerned about Todd
giving up in an elimination stunt. Still waters run
But the next stunt is deeper - this is the elimination
stunt of the episode, and the couples have to do this
one in the pouring rain. The men will be going into a
dumpster, trying to find a canister of pig uterus and
cow stomach. Once the guy finds a canister, the woman
has to find a key that opens it. If the canister is
empty, they have to find another one. If the canister
has the ingredients in it, then it must be eaten. The
slowest couple can make all of the pig and cow pates
that they want - after the show.
Jim and Melissa go first, and Jim is having a heck of a
time trying to find a canister. The reason? He's looking
on the top of the dumpster. Jim may be fast, but he
commits the dumb-ass move of the episode by not
realizing that the canisters would be at the BOTTOM of
the dumpsters, since they wouldn't float - they would
sink in the rain. Joe told them that they lost by 2
tenths of a second on the last stunt - and not to let
that happen to them here. With a time of 9:18.5 that was
completed, I guarantee that they will not lose by 2
tenths of a second - they will lose by a lot more.
Meghan and James are next - and we will see real quickly
how good - or bad - Jim and Melissa's time is. Meghan
gags - a lot - but finishes in 8:53.1. That would be the
closest that anyone would get, and I think that Jim and
Melissa should be comfortable with the cars - because
that's all they are getting.
Adam and Meg are third, and they are not going to help
out at all - they get it done in 5:35 and blow out the
other 2 team's times. Can Jackson and Monica stop Adam
and Meg? Monica finds the first canister of food rather
quickly and she gets it down much quicker than Meg.
Their time? 4:44, and Meg and Adam have another team to
be pissed at. Adam and Meg bitch at each other some
more, which culminates in Adam being slapped by Meg.
It could be even more painful for Jim and Melissa if
Todd and Rachel get this done quicker in 9:18. If not,
then it's Todd/Rachel who goes home. Todd finds the
first 2 canisters immediately and Rachel wolfs it down.
The result? They get it done in under 4 minutes, and
they win the $10,000 - and we are now seeing other teams
making a play at the top.
Jim and Melissa will not be one of those teams. Thanks
to Jim's brain fart, they will be going home. They did
have a good run and they will be grabbing some goodies
with them - but that's all they wrote and they leave in
an upset. That could be the break that Adam and Meg
wanted, as they think that only Jackson and Monica are
the legitimate threats left. We'll see if they can get
them out next week - or if it will be someone else who
takes the walk of shame.
