Episode 3.25 - March 8
s blood deeper than water? We will find out very
quickly as Fear Factor unveils their 'Sibling' Show.
Erica Olivarez and Fredo Marquez are here to bring the
'Latin Swing', Kali and Jenna Macy will want to use the
'Blonde' thing to their advantage, Colleen and Katie
Dwyer are looking to add another trophy to their
collection and Shane and Jared Marlowe say they are as
smart as they are buff.
So why did I say that we'll find out quickly if blood
was thicker than water? Because the teams will be trying
to get flags in a rotating cylinder. They have to pass
the flags from one cylinder to the other. The team that
gets the fewest number of flags before falling through
the hole or the slowest team will be eliminated. The
best team will select the order for the next stunt.
Fredo and Erica are first - and the so called 'Latin
Swing' are swinging very well. They get 5 flags in 1:06
before falling off. That seems to be tough to beat,
especially as they made traversing through the holes
look very easy. They have used those cylinders before in
other Fear Factor stunts and it has been anything except
easy. They should be able to make it - the question is
which team will be the first one to realize the hard way
that it's much tougher than advertised.
Shane and Jared are next - and they strip down to their
Speedos. Apparently they didn't really think that this
stunt would be like this, because they are very skimpy
as the 5 women who are there are having a field day and
whistling at them as they try to complete the stunt.
Fredo and Erica will really be having a field day as
they only get 2 flags before falling through the holes.
Jared gets dizzy and flies right through the hole at the
end of the cylinder, which means that Erica and Fredo
get to move on to the next stunt. Still, they are
confident that 2 flags will be enough.
The blondes are determined to make sure that 2 flags
will not be enough. They brandish a war scream
beforehand but are struggling mightily before one of
them falls into the 'hamster' position - which is the
'crouching I can't get up so I'm going to wait until I
fall through one of the holes' position. They only get
one flag in 1:26, which means that the men are safe.
They want to try again, but according to Joe, 'This is
Fear Factor, not Do-Over Factor.'
All Colleen and Katie need to do is to get more than one
flag in 1:26 - or get one flag and then quickly jump in
the water - which would stop the clock. According to
Joe, the worst thing that they could do is to get one
flag and struggle for the second, fall, and spend more
time doing that than the blondes, because since the time
doesn't stop until someone hits the water, the blondes
would advance. Colleen and Katie gets the one flag and
immediately jump in the water to stop the clock - which
causes the blondes to cheer because they thought that
Colleen and Katie didn't get any flags on the side. The
women did, though, so the Blondes are gone. As they
leave, they say that they still love each other and they
hug as they leave. AwwwwBarf.
Joe is happy that they won't be seeing Jared and Shane
in their Speedos anymore - but all of the siblings are
happy that no one will be eliminated - and this stunt
will be for a trip for 4 to the Bahamas.
Will they be happy about what they have to do to get
there? Joe uncovers a Fear Factor bug souffle of aphids,
beetles, slugs, scorpions and millipedes. One person
will scoop up the bugs in their mouth and drop it into a
grinder. The grinded remains will fall into the second
person's mouth, who will spit it out into a scale.
Whoever gets the most in the scale will be going to the
Bahamas and will be buying a lot of mouthwash while
The Latin Swing get to decide the order - and they
decide that they want to go first. They look like they
did a very good job - and they obtained 1 pound and 13.8
ounces worth of bug remains.
Shane and Jared are next - and Joe is already going
after him for bad technique. The pretty boys are scared
of the nasty bugs, and they only get a measly 9.4
ounces. Jared - "He's never had that big of a mouth and
I've never been that hungry." Oooookkkkkkk...
Conversely, both Katie and Colleen says that they have
big mouths, and Joe is complimenting them on their
strategy. Colleen is very smart, going after the worms
and avoiding the biting bugs. Would the strategy be good
enough? When time runs out, the women get a final weight
of... 1 pound and ....13.34 ounces. Latin Swing will be
enjoying themselves in the Bahamas, but the bummed out
women swear that they will get their revenge by grabbing
All I want to know is - where is the ASPCA complaining
about the needless death of all of these bugs?
How badly will the couples be complaining about the
third stunt? In a remake of the first $100,000
Tournament of Champions stunt, one person will be
sloshing around in an oil tanker getting pieces of a
flagpole. They give the pieces to the other person, who
will assemble the pieces and then traverse the top of
the tanker to create the pole. The team that does this
the quickest will win the $50,000.
Jared and Shane, who may arguably be the weakest male
couple in Fear Factor history, goes first. They said
that they would get 8 flags and they get 2, they said
that they would be going to the Bahamas and they come in
last, and then they take their sweet time in the last
stunt, don't screw the flag in properly, and as a
result, it falls off the truck, properly disqualifying
the guys from the rest of the show. "I guess we're just
not Fear Factor Material." They said that they had a
good time, and I am just wondering if maybe they weren't
blondes underneath the brown hair.
It's time for Latin Swing to do their thing. They are
actually slower then the guys, but they do complete the
stunt in 5:27. They congratulate each other - but don't
give out strategy on how to complete the stunt. Playing
a little gamesmanship, eh?
The women have a tough task ahead of them - but 5:27 is
clearly beatable, since the guys were going at a 3
minute pace. The women are setting the pace quicker, and
Fredo is visibly concerned. Katie tells Colleen to take
her time - and that is a hug mistake, because they run
out of steam at the end. Katie gets the last piece and
is about to complete the flag - when time runs out. In a
matter of seconds, Fredo and Erica win the $50,000 as
Fredo is hunched overhead in his arms, crying. They
celebrate in a big AwwwBarf-like hug, but that's ok as
Latin Swing will be swinging away with the cash.
