Episode 3.4 - October 13
Michelle Concalo (Dartmouth, MA) believes that good
things come in small packages. Josh Davis (Salt Lake
City) plays to win. Buffy Brown (Omaha, NE) is playing
for her 3 year old daughter. Dominic Grubb (Brick, NJ)
is playing for his sick dad. Gina Main (Washington DC)
is going to lull everyone into a false sense of
security. Sean Cashman (Sydney, Australia) is sick of
the cocky Yanks. One of there people will be looking
good - the other 5 will be looking like idiots.
I hope they like helicopters. The contestants will be
moving across the bottom of a helicopter, picking off
flags. The man and woman with the least amount of flags
(or who takes the longest amount of time in getting all
of them) is eliminated.
Josh is first - and he says that he's the big dog.
Dominic calls him a poodle. He looks more like a
dachshund (a wiener dog), but he is moving quick, like a
terrier. He gets all of the flags and gets it done in 35
seconds, which isn't too shabby. "No pain, no gain."
says Josh, who shows everyone his bruises.
Dominic says that he wants to squash Josh - and he says
that he's miffed that no one considers him a threat. His
performance indicates that... he should be taken just as
seriously as Josh. He gets it done exactly in 35
seconds. They both automatically advance - and Sean can
too if he gets it done in less than 35 seconds.
"I have to make it - there's no questions about it,"
says the Australian. He is moving like a Tasmanian
Devil, and although he slows down near the end, he gets
it done in 32 seconds - which is good enough to advance.
All of the guys move on.
Can the women pull the tie-thing too? Buffy is ready -
and the guys say that she needs the money to pay for the
surgery. Nice. Buffy did a wedding ceremony in the Lord
of the Rings theme - and she performs the first stunt as
gracefully as Golem. Buffy gets ZERO flags, and her 3
year old kid can only hide behind her pacifier in shame.
Buffy is automatically gone, and all the women have to
do is to get one measly flag. No $1,000 bonus? Lame.
Gina is first to the challenge - and she gets a few
flags before going into the drink. Michelle who's
$17,000 in debt due to excessive credit card spending,
gets the whole thing done in 49 seconds. After the first
stunt, we have 5 people advancing.
The fun continues in the next round, as contestants have
to bob for cow's hooves in a vat of cod liver oil. They
then have to drop it in a container of maggots, then
take a mouthful of maggots and put it on the scale. The
2 people who get the least amount on the scale in 2
minutes don't get to see what the third stunt looks like
Josh goes first - and he looks like he's taking his
sweet time. "You've got to get bigger mouthfuls - I know
you've got a big mouth," yells Joe. Joe only gets 1.75
pounds, and that doesn't seem like a lot. Michelle, who
is used to the smell of being in a nursing home, seems
to go much faster than Josh. "I thought you were a lady
up until then." Michelle only got 1.5 pounds, so Josh is
in the lead.
Gina, who's used to disgusting things, like doing the
husband's laundry, is next. She is going much slower
than Josh, and Joe needs to remind her that she's in a
race. She beats Michelle's weight. She gets a massive
2.7 pounds ("You are a savage!") and she automatically
qualifies for the finals.
Sean can send Gina - or himself home. He's used to
eating maggots (eh?) Sean is quick - but he's taking
little mouthfuls. The speed outpaces his bites, and Sean
racks up over 2 pounds. Bye-bye, Michelle. Dominic can
send Josh home - unless he ties him again at 1.75
pounds. Dominic wants to make sure that it doesn't
happen - and he does in convincing fashion. 3.05 pounds
worth of maggots is good enough to send Josh home.
Sean, Gina and Dominic advance - and they brace
themselves for one last stunt. For the final stunt, the
players have to launch themselves onto a moving ramp
car. Cool. Whoever launches themselves the farthest wins
Sean goes first - and he launches himself 65 feet, 6
inches. That seems like a decent length - but it also
seems beatable. Gina is next - and her dad dies on a
motorcycle. Meanwhile, Dominic admits that he fell
asleep and he flipped his car. Sean - "Did you flip it
further than 65 feet?" Nice.
Gina didn't get as much air as Sean did - but she got a
nice roll. Was it nice enough? According to the
tape...yes. She screams, and according to Sean, "This
means that I'm going home, right?" Right. G'Day, Mate.
For the record, she gets the length of 77 feet, 1 inch -
and that's what Dominic needs to beat. Gina is praying
for Dominic to mess up - but it doesn't happen and he
goes 94 feet, 2 inches. That's good enough for $50,000 -
and a victory lap.
