Episode 3.20 - February 9
Meg and Adam's biggest threat, Melissa and Jim, are
gone - and although they take Meg and Adam's cars with
them, Adam and Meg are eyeing a much larger prize - one
million dollars. Will they get it? Or will Jackson and
Monica (now their biggest threats) or Todd and Rachel
(who just won the last stunt) or James/Meghan (who have
It's a funny thing that I bring the wheels up - because
Joe brings another pair of cars out - a pair of Mazdas.
Those go to the winners of this stunt - and that's the
team who can get the most amount of flags. They do this
by the female leaning over a 2o inch beam and grabbing
as many as 6 flags. They will be holding on to a pole
that the male member of the team will be holding.
Whoever gets the most amount of flags (or who are the
quickest at it) will walk away with the cars.
Meghan and James go first - and maybe they can win
something this time around. While the other teams talk
strategy, Meghan just yells at James. You can already
tell that this stunt will take awhile, as they take over
4 minutes, but Meghan gets 4 flags in 4:38.05. She could
have gotten more, but James drops the balancing rope and
once again, James is to blame for the team's collapse.
Still, 4 flags is tough to beat - but doable. Meg and
Adam see this as the perfect second chance - and they
play like it, as they get flag #4 in 1:14. She's leaning
all the way over - and it pays off as they complete it
in 1:49.6. "Obviously, they compete much better up there
than they do on the ground," smirks Joe. They finally
get a feeling if trust - and is it possible that the
bickering Bickersons have finally turned the corner?
Todd says that they can do this in 1:30 - but Rachel
rolls her eyes at him. She has good reason to - she only
gets 2 flags in the same time that it takes Meg and Adam
to get all of the flags and they are out of the running.
But instead of quitting, they are trying to get all of
the flags, and it's taking them a while - a long while.
Past the 4 minute Mark, Joe starts to have fun with
them, telling Rachel to not quit because Todd quit on
one of the stunts in yesterday's show. After that
doesn't stop them, Joe continues to heckle them - "The
2005 Mazdas will be out before you guys are done with
the stunt", and then him and the rest of the contestants
on the ground decide to boycott them, by turning around,
not watching them complete the stunt, and then,
eventually, mooning them. Nice. What happens if you take
too long? You get to ass the fannies of everyone else in
the competition. Todd and Rachel finally get the hint
and they stop trying at the 6 minute mark.
To save themselves from seeing Joe Rogan's behind,
Jackson and Monica need to get the stunt done quicker -
but to win the cars, they need to beat 1:49.6. Not
wanting to see Joe's butt is a good motivator, as they
get the first four flags at break-neck speed. On the
last flag, Jackson lets go of the rope, forcing Monica
to lunge for the flag. She leaps for it...and misses,
causing them to only get 5 flags and Monica to rip into
Jackson. Meg and Adam win their second set of cars - and
they have to be the favorites to win it all.
Whoever wins the next stunt will be the favorite with a
weekend in Las Vegas - with $5,000 worth of gambling
money. Joe shows everyone 2 vats. In the first vat are
ten chicken feet covered by 400 rats - and the men need
to grab the chicken feet using their mouths. The second
tank contains another 400 rats - and the women have to
lie in the tank with the chicken feet. The fastest
couple goes to Vegas - but everyone else gets a free
James and Meghan starts first, and James, according to
him, wants to throw up. It shows, as it looks like he's
taking his sweet time. He finishes it in 1:13.8, which
isn't a bad time - but I don't think it's going to be
Meg and Adam are next - and she is asked if she'd rather
be in the tank or taking the feet. She says she'd rather
be in the tank - but she changes her tune when the rats
come pouring in. Meg is told to not sit up - but she
sits up and decides to quit. The forerunners are not
going to win this, and all of the love from the last
stunt is gone now as Adam yells at Meg.
Todd and Rachel want to get married in Vegas - as does
Jackson and Monica, so they both want this. While Rachel
is being covered, Adam and Meg are still bitching in the
background. Todd is doing this like someone who wants to
be married in Vegas, as he does it in 41.7 seconds - but
they are being foreshadows by Adam and Meg who are still
Can Jackson win the trip? He is going fast, too as he
gets it done in...35.2 seconds. Adam can only watch in
disgust as Jackson and Monica will be going there for
But whoever comes in last on this stunt will be leaving
for their honeymoon a bit early, as the losing team is
eliminated. One of the members of the team will be
suspended by 4 cuffs over the pool. The other person has
to get the bolt cutters and cut all 4 wires, dropping
the teammate into the pool. When that happens they have
to get the flag on the side of the pool to stop the
clock. The winning team gets 10 grand - the losing team
makes a grand exit.
Joe talks strategy, advising that the stronger swimmer
should be the person doing the cutting - even if it
means that the girl should be doing it. Meghan says that
she is the strongest swimmer - but she tells James to do
the swimming. James has the chance to once again screw
up - but he gets it done in 1:22.8 and that seems like a
Todd decides that he wants to do it - against Rachel's
wishes, since she wants to do it because she thinks that
she's the better swimmer. Todd tries to hyperventilate
himself to get more oxygen, but on the fourth station,
he has to go back up for breath, and that costs them
priceless seconds - and it's painfully evident when they
complete the stunt in 1:24.9. Rachel says that it's ok,
but Todd wants to hang himself by his limbs - maybe good
enough for some drawing and quartering.
Jackson and Monica just blaze through the stunt in
1:02.1, and they are in prime position for the $10,000.
Adam and Meg can stop them - but they need to get past
1:24.9 to stay on the show. Rachel and Todd know that
they are beat - and Rachel tells Todd to to cry. Jackson
and Monica will be crying, because Adam and Meg get it
done in 1:01.9. Todd and Rachel shouldn't by crying too
much - they win $20,000 as a consolation prize - but
that's all they are winning.
We are down to the final 3 - and we will see next week
which one of them will be winning a million dollars.
