Episode 3.21 - February 16
It all boils down to this - 3 stunts away from a
million dollars. This stunt, however, won't knock anyone
out of the competition - but it will give someone a trip
to Russia and a chance to fly faster than the speed of
sound. How do they win the trip? One person has to drive
their truck onto the back of a pickup truck, while the
second person has to give directions - because the first
person will be blindfolded. The quickest team gets to
test their speed in Russia.
Adam thinks that it's all about calling out right and
left. James thinks that they can win this car stunt -
which is good because he and Meghan haven't won diddly
Jackson and Monica will be the first team to go - and
Jackson says that their communication needs to improve,
as we see that they blew chunks in the flag catching
stunt from the last time out. The skills don't improve
any here, as they screw up the first time - but get it
done the second time in 1:24.42. It's a decent time, but
it's certainly beatable...
...and Adam and Meg, who already have trips all over the
world, will be the ones to try to beat it. Meg tells
Adam that she can give directions - but Adam has pointed
out that Meg has already screwed up directions twice
today. Make it three times - they get on the truck - and
then fall off, going spinning around and taking
themselves out of the running. We get more screaming and
arguing as we see a slow motion of the car going bye
Meghan and James can also go bye-bye - to Russia. Joe
asks them if they are frustrated that they haven't won -
but Meghan wisely points out that they are still on the
show - something that 6 other couples can't say. They
also can't say that they haven't won anything, as they
get it done in 12 second. "They finally won something!"
yells Joe, as James and Meghan will be eating borscht
for 2 weeks.
But will they be eating crow on the next stunt? Someone
WILL be going home in this one. Remember the rat stunt,
where the women got covered in hundreds of rats? Well,
this time, someone will be covered in hundreds of
TARANTULAS!!! The men will suck a mixture of blended
crickets and spit it out into a tube, which will release
a ball to unlock a key to a hacksaw which cute off a
metal bar to end the stunt. The slowest team is out -
but the quickest team will decide who goes first for the
After Joe lets the teams decide who will be doing what
duty, we start with Meghan and James - and Meghan will
be in the box. As Meghan sits in the box - we see that
crickets have been added so the tarantulas can dine on
them instead of Meghan. James gets through it rather
quickly - and 2:22.4 seems like a decent time.
Jackson and Monica are the next people to go. Meanwhile,
Meg, who already quit in the rat stunt, is freaking out.
Monica isn't too thrilled either - but she'll do it for
a million dollars. I thought the 2:22.4 was good - but
Jackson blows that away and he and Monica will be going
into the finals.
Will Adam and Meg be joining them? It looks like no, as
it also looks like Meg won't take 10 million to get into
the box. Meg does get into the tank - and she has second
thoughts. Adam tries to talk her out of it, telling her
to picture going to Spain, Africa or taking a car, but
it's no use and Meg, one stunt away from a million
dollars, throws it down the toilet.
Meg apologizes to Adam - but Adam doesn't want an
apology, he wants the million - which he isn't getting.
They could have switched roles, but Adam thought that
Meg wouldn't do it in 2:22 - and I'm forced to agree.
They leave - and the look on Adam's face makes it clear
that even though they are hugging, he wouldn't mind
stuffing Meghan in the cage - and leaving it locked.
Could James and Meghan, the eternal underdogs, win the
million? They could pull off the huge upset as we see
the one million dollar stunt - the women are handcuffed
behind a boat. The men are dangling from a helicopter.
When they meet, the men have to unlock the women and
they both have to swim to the platform on the other
side. The team that does this the quickest wins the
Jackson and Monica force Meghan and James to go first -
and they hope that their physicality, combined with
James propensity to suck, will make it easy on them to
win. The second part is working like a charm, as James
has massive problems trying to take off the handcuffs.
They complete it in 1:21.6, which is decent, but a clean
run will beat the time. Meghan knows it, and she curses
out James for being stupid enough to keep the key on his
wrist, instead of taking it off. James knows it and he
wonders if she would have had the million - and a lot
more goodies - with a better partner.
Jackson and Monica go - and Jackson is having problems
with the keys as well. It looks like it will be very
close - and it is. The time that Jackson and Monica get
is...1:06.6. They win the million and James knows that
they could have won it if he didn't screw up with the
cuffs. Jackson and Monica embrace, and Meghan and James
congratulate them in a gesture of good sportsmanship.
7 teams - and 17 stuns - later, Jackson and Monica win
the million - and they get the wedding in Vegas. Nice.
We'll see how nice it is when we have new people going
after new stunts...
