Episode 3.28 - April 5
Last week's episode was a rerun. Will the contestant's
on this week's episode wish that last week's episode was
on this week? Kara Watkins doesn't care - she's looking
for something to get her focused. Kevin Nosar, an Asian
who is pierced and tattooed all over, is looking for the
dark side of life. Andrew Manczik is a white bread
college guy who wants to win, while Shawnie Kiel says
that she can throw a softball fast - and drink a can of
beer faster. Ryan May is a grown-up cowboy while Masumi
Max is your normal fire eating contortionist who likes
to run around naked (her words, not mine - though I
wouldn't mind seeing it anyway...)
There will be no running around naked or eating fire in
the first stunt, but the players have to get on a moving
oil tanker and collect flags from the ceiling of a
tunnel. Whoever does it the best will be selecting out
the order of who plays on the next stunt, while the guy
and the girl who collect the least amount of flags will
be naked on their own time.
Kevin, the dark one, is up first, and everyone else
thinks that he isn't going to do well because he has to
operate in the light. Well the rock climber doesn't do
well - because he's as coordinated as a rock. He has 14
flags - but he missed a lot of them and I see dark
things happening for the dark man.
Ryan is up second. He stumbles a little, but he gets
that rodeo balance going and skunks Kevin with 23 flags.
Only Andy can screw things up - but the shrimp farmer
doesn't screw it up and gets 21. "What we know for sure
is that Kevin, it's over for you," says Joe, as Kevin is
bummed out that he doesn't get to do the disgusting
second stunt. Trust me Kevin, the people will be more
than happy to swap places with you.
It's time for the women to go - and Shawnie isn't afraid
of an oil tanker. She isn't afraid of Kevin, either -
because she matches his score of 14 flags and she is
pissed. She has good reason to be - Masumi gets 20
flags, though she was concerned that she would fall off
of the truck.
Will Kara get 15 flags? Or will she fall off the truck?
The answer is.... the former, as she racks up 19 flags.
She is upset at herself as Kara talks trash - after she
eliminates her. Well, that's not very classy...
...and neither is a bazooka, which the contestants will
have to shoot at. The ammunition? A potato. The stakes?
The number that the potato hits is the number of...
POTATO BUGS... that they have to eat. Makes sense, no?
Kara thinks it's cool while the look on Masumi's face
clearly reveals that she'd rather contort her whole body
around a sack of potatoes.
Ryan had the most amount of flags - and he selects the
order. The order is Andy (who says that he'll remember
it), Kara, Masumi and himself. Ryan says that the worst
thing that he's ever eaten is old fraternity food - and
I have a feeling that this is going to be worst - and
what's worse for him is that he nails the maximum 3
potato bugs. Joe tells him that they bite - and they are
already all over his fingers and he has to drop it. He
does manage to hold it in his fingers - and he manages
to eat them all. He says that they taste just like
shrimp. Surrrrrreeee...if shrimp bite...
Kara is next - and the guys are digging the chicks with
guns motif. They'd dig it better if she can aim - which
she can't. When she finally hits the target, we see that
she also needs to eat 3 bugs. She gets it down - and
then she glares at Masumi, who only needs to eat one of
them. She does - and bites that sucker right down the
That leaves Ryan, who also hits the maximum number of
three. Despite everyone jeering at him, he gets all
three bugs down, which has all four people advance to
the final stunt. As for the eliminated Kevin, I don't
think he'd be too impressed with this one...
...but how impressed will he be with the last stunt? I
am impressed. There are 6 keys - and one of them starts
a car that the contestants are in. They need to get it
done quickly, because if they don't, a bulldozer will be
coming from across the other side of the playing field
and take the car with them - and push it over the ledge
they are on. The contestant who completes the stunt the
quickest - or the person who gets the furthest before
getting knocked off of the course - wins the $50,000.
Andy goes first - and goes nowhere. As Joe aptly puts it
- he's doomed. He doesn't even start the car and he's
out. "I do not believe that I couldn't get any key in
the car to start." Kara does start the car - but not
before the dozer hits the car and pushes her over the
Ryan says that he will not let $50,000 slip out of his
hands - and he does get the car started, which keeps him
in the game - but all Masumi needs to do is to start it
before the bulldozer hits the car and she'll win the
money. She.... doesn't. Ryan is the only person to get
the car started, and although it's a lame finish, it's
still a finish - as he finishes with the money.
