Episode 3.7 - November 3

Now who in their right mind would fear Lisa Bingham, Jennifer Enriquez, Keirsten Wingo, Nicole French, Catherine Ludwig or Paula Scalco? Why, no one - but they look to put fear aside - though "we wanted to crush some men". Well no men here, but $50,000 on the line for those who want it...

And in order to get it, they will have to grab as many flags as possible as the are repeatedly dumped into the water by their ankles in a flying helicopter. Does this sound familiar? It should, because we've seen this already in FF - Las Vegas.

Nicole does not want to be the 2 people who pick up the least amount of flags - because those 2 get to go home. The women are hoping that her hair gets caught in the chopper blades. Nice - but too bad that the blades are on the top of the copter and she's on the bottom. The women's fears may be justified, however - she gets a healthy 9 flags - and that will be tough to beat. "They are all going to feel stupid when they fail," says a smug Nicole.

Will see how smug Nicole is after Jennifer goes - but Nicole will stay smug (albeit a little less so) after Jennifer only gets 8. Nicole is even less smug when Catherine gets 10 - and is guaranteed a spot in the second stunt. Nicole says that the has more room to store the flags. Meow. Joe says that Nicole has more places to stuff her flags. Meeeeeoooow.

Keirsten says that she will get 11 - and she wonders if her top will stay on. Most of the men are hoping that it doesn't, but it does (awwwwwwww), but what does drop is a few flags as she does a pre-celebratory dance. It doesn't come back to haunt her, though, she gets 10 and can move on.

Next up is Paula - and she says that she wants 12. That will be fine - but 10 is good enough to go on, and 9 is good enough to send Jennifer home. She gets 10 - and that seals the deal for Jennifer.

The smug Nicole is now on the bubble - and Lisa can have her bubble burst. After her drops, she has a total of.... 9. Since they are not going to get rid of 2 girls and only have 3 left, they will have 5 left instead, as both Nicole and Lisa advance - along with the other three women.

Everyone is happy now - but happy will they be when they see their next stunt - as the women assume that it will be food-related. They guessed right, as they see platters of worms and cow brains moving across a conveyor belt. They have to transfer the food items (which also include cow snout and pig uterus) to a scale, and of course, they have to transfer it by mouth. The 2 people who get the least amount of weight across are "lightweights" - and it's lights out for them.

Catherine goes first - and she manages to transport 5 pounds worth of delicacies over. Paula, who's next, looks to get 8 or 9 pounds - Maybe she meant ounces - she is not doing that well, and even the other women are telling her that she sucks. She does get 3.5 pounds, but it looked like she was really struggling and that looks like a really bad weight.

Lisa is looking to have Paula eat her words, so to speak. She does - barely - as she gets 3.75 pounds, but the 2 lowest people are out, so she is very much in danger. Keirsten is the next to try the I Love Lucy gone horrifically wrong stunt - and Joe says that Keirsten has a huge mouth. That she does, much to the delight of her 5.2 weight, and much to the dismay of Paula, who will be worming her way out of there.

Keirsten and Catherine are in - while Paula is out and Lisa is appearing that way. Can the smug Nicole back up her words? She can, as she gets over 4 pounds - and spits some food at Joe as well. Well, that's interesting - but not as much for Lisa, who has to leave us.

That leaves us to the final stunt, which involves an 8 inch wide giant-sized human hamster wheel. The premise is simple - run in there for as long as you can. The woman with the best running endurance wins the money.

Catherine, who wasn't thrilled about going first on the last stunt, gets to go first again on this stunt. She sets a time of 1:29 - which seems decent - but not unstoppable.

The question is - can either of the women top it? The smug Nicole gets first crack at it - and she's now even smugger as she lasts for 2:00.03. Cat's concern does become realized and she's gone.

It's down to Keirsten - and she says that she can do it in 2:30. She doesn't need to hang on for that long, because she does get past 2 minutes, She jumps into the water after that, so we won't see if she does get to 2 and a half minutes - but it doesn't mater, because neither fear - nor smugness - was a factor today.
